Jessy Paston

Hello and welcome!!  I am Jessy and I am very pleased you have taken the time to see what support I can offer to you.

I am an experienced and qualified Counsellor and have specialised in postnatal low level mental health issues and now work within private practice.  I have a special interest in helping new mothers transition into their new identity and role and help them overcome any trauma or negative experiences through this transition.

I work in a person centered way, use Solution Focused Therapy, Photo Therapy as well as conventional Talking Therapy but each person is different so each package of support is bespoke to each individual.

I am a member of BACP and abide by their ethical framework.

Becoming a mother is the best and most rewarding job you will ever do but there isn’t much talk about the downside of motherhood, is there?  The overwhelm, the exhaustion, the lack of support, everyone giving you unwanted advice and feeling so low, so lost and ever so alone.

There is so much support during the pregnancy and care for your baby after it’s born but what about YOU?  And what about your Mental and Emotional health?

Who is there to help you with experiences you had during childbirth that left you feeling vulnerable and scared?  Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed with this new role of being a Mum.  Maybe you are crying all the time, lonely, sad and are unbelievably tired and feeling completely out of control or really angry?  Maybe you’ve never felt like this before and it’s frightening?

This is meant to be a good time but you just want to hide under the covers, wanting these uncomfortable feelings to go away and be the person you once were, maybe even wanting the life you had before baby?

Do you want things to stay as they are or are you ready to change it?

I am offering a free introductory session with me to find out what it’s like to work with a person centered therapist who can empathise, non judgmentally with what you’re going through and support you with care and compassion.  I believe YOU are the expert in your own life and will create a safe space to allow YOU to talk through your needs at your own pace and depth and help you find your own solutions that suits you best.
