Are you looking for support from a Clinical Psychologist who has experience in:
- Antenatal & postnatal depression and anxiety
- Birth trauma
- Bonding difficulties
- Adjustment in the couple relationship and much more……..
Let us introduce you to Dr Sam Lowry who is working in partnership with Bump2baby Reality to extend the support we offer local families.
In the NHS Sam has worked in Community Perinatal Mental Health, supporting mums and babies when significant emotional challenges arise. Her own independent practice echoes this specialism. Sam is committed to supporting parents to explore difficult and significant thoughts and feelings that may arise during pregnancy and the postnatal period.
Sam fully understands that becoming a parent is a huge life event and is emotionally and physically challenging in so many ways. Conceiving a baby in mind and body, carrying a baby, delivering a baby and caring for a baby is not easy. Indeed, as with any significant transition, a wealth of different feelings can be stirred up. Sam feels that therapeutic work to support parents and babies offers a unique, deeply exciting and privileged opportunity to support such a significant relationship within such a critical and sensitive period of time which is exciting.
Some of the difficulties Sam works with include: Antenatal and postnatal depression and anxiety, birth trauma, bonding difficulties, loss, adjustment in the couple relationship, changes in identity.
People can develop coping strategies to manage difficulties and these may work for some time but are then found to be unhelpful or no longer effective. As problems build, thoughts and feelings can feel increasingly worse and can result in a greater impact on quality of life.
Therapy offers a place to explore important feelings and experiences with someone who is trained neither to judge nor advise you, but to think about, acknowledge and make sense of difficult emotions and experiences. Sam’s approach is not prescriptive. She will work alongside you in the way that suits you and your needs.
