I can answer questions about PPD symptoms, direct people to helpful books and websites about PPD. I can answer questions about what treatments are available for PPD. 1 week after having my twins in 2007, I was hospitalized for severe Postpartum Depression. I spent a total of 5 days in in patient treatment, and was put on antidepressants. It took me 2 years to recover, and I still take it day by day. But I know my first hand experience and my willingness to share my story has helped other women come forward and seek help for their PPD. if you need help, call: 1-800-944-4PPD Helpline provided by Postpartum Support International.

Did you recently have a baby and find it difficult to cope? Do you have a “fussy” baby that cries a lot, has sleeping difficulties or does not seem to settle in a routine? Do you feel overwhelmed from the challenges of being a mother? Are you sleep deprived, sad or feel lonely and misunderstood? As a clinical psychologist my main aim is to help you and your baby to get on well together, to establish a routine that suits both of you, and to find pleasure in your relationship.I can answer questions about postpartum depression,optimum baby development, baby life and mother-baby relationships. If you are interested about these subjects you could also visit my blog at : www.contact-counselling.com where I talk about psychological theory and practice related to early motherhood issues, relationships and family conflict.
