Fertility Support Counselling

Fertility Support Counselling offers patients and donors an opportunity to examine their thoughts, feelings, beliefs and their relationships in order to reach a better understanding of the meaning and the implications of decisions they may make; counselling may also offer support to them as they undergo treatment and may help them to accommodate feelings about the outcome of any treatment.

TMC Fertility offers you an opportunity to talk to a counsellor about the implications of the suggested treatment before you consent to it.

What does this mean?

Counselling aims to help you understand exactly what the treatment will involve and how it might affect you and those close to you – now and in the future.

What is it useful for?

Counselling on the implications of treatment is especially important if you are considering using donated sperm, eggs or embryos – all of which involve complicated issues. You may need time to explore how you feel, to consider the needs and legal rights of donor-conceived children and to talk about whether this is going to be the right decision for you.
Fertility Support Counselling can help a couple or an individual feel less alone and can assist patients with finding ways to cope with the emotional implications of infertility. Patients may decide to speak with a counsellor at any point of their treatment.
