Dr Emma HaynesCounselling and Psychotherapy for Winchester

I offer training in perinatal mental illness, developmental trauma, baby bonding, psychiatric drugs, mental health disorders and I also offer TA refresher days


At present all training will be delivered on zoom. There will be good breaks within the training and we will still have breakout groups for experiential learning within the day setting, so that participants can gain as much as they can from the training.

I am happy to provide specific training for mums, midwives, health visitors or any kind of health practitioner. Please contact me about your needs so I can set up a workshop that would be suitable.

Please note that in 2021 I will be providing a certificated course in maternal mental illness for psychotherapists and counsellors on zoom. This will cover all aspects of working in this area. It will be run over 5 days. Please contact me if you are interested in this. As soon as the details are finalised and the website is up and running I will place the links on here.

Motherhood and Mental Illness - An Introduction (this workshop is designed for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists)

This is a full day workshop covering the basic principals of working effectively with women who are experiencing mental illness in pregnancy and postnatally. This a huge topic with a great deal to cover and thus it is an introduction only.

Mental illness during pregnancy and after childbirth is common and can have devastating effects on the mother and child as well as the family. This workshop covers the major symptoms, why these have manifested themselves and how to treat them, in particular the specificity of illness, which non-relational therapy does not address. This is not a ‘one-type-fits-all’ type of process. Each client presents in a personal way and it is important to understand that treating these specific needs is a vital part of the work. This workshop is about treating the cause of the illness, not just providing symptomatic relief. This is important, particularly if the woman wishes to have further children. We will explore briefly some of the drugs that are used in the perinatal period and their pros and cons and why therapy can offer something ‘more than’ a drug. I will use clinical vignettes and experiential work throughout, as my teaching style is collaborative and co-creative.

Date: 30th April 2021
Time: 9.30am to 5.30pm.
The cost is £40
You will be provided with CPD certificates.
