Meriel Whale Counselling
Meriel Whale is childless not by choice, and offers counselling to men and women in the same position. She also offers general counselling to all aged 16+. She qualified in 2010 from Brighton University.
Talking to a counsellor can help us understand events in our lives, identify and express our emotions and talk about things that distress us to the point that we're struggling to cope. It can enable us to resolve difficult situations and feelings, make positive changes and move forward with renewed confidence, self belief and a sense of wellbeing. Accepting the idea of a different future to the one you have envisaged is a brave decision and it can bring with it feelings of loss, anger and profound sadness. No one has experienced childlessness in quite the same way as anyone else.
We all need to tell our story in our own way and it can be very helpful to talk to a professional at this time.
