Fertility counselling

One to one support throughout your fertility journey.

Fertility counselling

Part of Complete Fertility's ongoing patient care includes the provision of a confidential and supportive fertility counselling service. This is staffed by committed and experienced counsellors, who are members of the specialist British Infertility Counselling Association. 

It is recognised that fertility struggles can be an upsetting and isolating experience. The counsellors will be able to offer support, before, during and after the varying stages of your fertility journey. 

Counselling may include discussing the implications of treatment options as well as what it might mean to you to make or receive donations. Implications counselling (including telephone counselling) is also offered to those considering cryo-preservation of sperm in the event of cancer treatments.

Counselling can also be helpful at the end of treatment, in coping with the long-term issues of fertility problems and in helping find a way forward in life, possibly without children.

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) also advocate counselling provision for those with fertility issues.
