Laura Hans

the Perinatal CBT Therapist

Are you a new or existing parent that is struggling with the demands of parenthood? Have you been feeling particularly low and/or anxious in your pregnancy or after the birth of your baby? Or maybe, you just can't put your finger on how you are feeling, but you know that things don't feel quite right.

Any of the above difficulties can happen to any of us at any point in the parenting journey. Sometimes, we may expect it to happen, and other times, it can take us completely off guard.

I'm Laura and I am a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, specialising in Perinatal Mental Health. I support parents who are experiencing problems with anxiety and/or depression whether in pregnancy, postnatally or further down the line into parenthood. Having experienced my own difficulties when transitioning into parenthood, I have developed a strong passion for normalising the struggles and helping those who find themselves in a similar position that I found myself in. I love CBT and have seen both personally and professionally how it can transform lives for the better.

Perinatal Mental Health is an area so close to my heart and being a parent of three young children, I know how hard parenthood can be, the sense of feeling overwhelmed, the worry about whether you are enough, and the days where you just want to run away from it all!

I have lots of experience of working with problems such as:

  • Ante/postnatal Depression
  • Perinatal OCD
  • Birth Trauma
  • Tokophobia (fear of childbirth)
  • Health/Social Anxiety
  • Low-Self Esteem
  • Generalised Anxiety
  • Perfectionism
  • Panic Attacks
  • Agoraphobia

Over the years, I have helped lots of parents to navigate through the above common difficulties. I can help you if this is your very first baby, is your second or third baby, or your baby might not be a baby any more but you are still finding things tough! Let's be honest, parenting is a tough old job and it's ok to not enjoy every single part of it. I am dedicated to helping parents like you work on the things that are troubling them. I hope that working with me will help you feel better about yourself and your role as a parent, and that to your baby and your family, you are enough.

If you would like to work with me, you can check my availability and book your free consultation with me by clicking on the BOOK YOUR FREE CONSULTATION button at the top of the page.

If you decide to go ahead with therapy after your free consultation, the cost per session (50 minutes) is £80
