Clinical Psychology- Fertility Acupuncture- Complementary Health Care
THE FERTILITY SUITE
I had my own fertility journey and I know how tough it is, this led me to working with women going through the same. I want to share with you what I learnt along the way about how to improve your chances of conceiving, either naturally or through IVF. I want to help you to make your experience easier and feel like you have some control over it.
I started having acupuncture throughout my third (and finally, successful) round of IVF and I only wish I had found it sooner! Not only did it help with my IVF success it helped many symptoms of an auto-immune condition I suffer with and gave me a safe, calm and relaxing space to retreat to when it all got too much. You know those days when you just can’t face another pregnancy announcement or baby shower invite, I would go for some acupuncture and come away feeling happier, lighter and more positive.
I often get asked why I only see fertility clients and the answer is simple, because I’m passionate about educating, empowering and supporting women on a fertility journey. Working in one area allows me to be 100% committed to you and use all of my knowledge and expertise to offer you a bespoke, unique treatment plan. This gives you the best chance of success.
Whether you have unexplained infertility or a specific diagnosis, I am able to offer the highest level of care, in particular, in areas such as Endometriosis, PCOS and recurrent miscarriage.
If you feel like I may be the right person to help support you then please do get in touch or book your free 15 minute call. Sometimes it’s nice to chat beforehand to help alleviate any nerves, answer any questions or just get to know each other a little before you commit.
DR ALICE GLADWIN (DCLINPSY, AFBPSS)
I am a chartered clinical pychologist and associate fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and am fully registered with the Health Care Professionals Council (HCPC). I offer a range of evidence based psychological therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and am committed to ongoing training and professional development to ensure I integrate the most up-to-date techniques and ideas into my psychological therapy. I work with adults and young people aged 16 or over, individually or in couples.
With a wealth of experience gained through over 15 years working in a range of settings in the NHS and private practice in London, in 2015 I founded AMG Psychology, my private practice offering psychology services in the East Surrey area. Please see my website www.amgpsychology.com for more information.
I offer consultation and psychological therapy for a range of difficulties including depression, anxiety, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, relationship problems, trauma, addictions, eating disorders and situations where physical health issues may be influencing psychological wellbeing. I am also experienced in work related stress and broader challenges such as struggling to find contentment, purpose or fulfilment as well as the difficulties of procrastination, low self - esteem and perfectionism.
I have a warm and curious approach to working with all my clients and place considerable value in establishing a secure and trusting therapeutic relationship which is so important in helping us make full use of sessions to work towards meaningful change. The first step is always an initial consultation appointment and following this we can decide on further sessions depending on circumstances. I work on a short to medium term basis and whilst there is no set formula, I tend to see my clients on a weekly or fortnightly basis for between 8 and 20 sessions.
I offer a free 15 minute initial telephone consultation for any prospective clients who would like to speak with me first.
ALICE DE VILLIERS (NEE VON KLEMPERER)
I am a fully insured HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist. My training, was psychodynamic (embedded in Attachment and Object Relations Theory) in nature. Since moving to the UK in 2010, this has been supplemented with Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Skills training.
I therefore think I work within an eclectic model: combining aspects of these theories, the therapy can be as practical, time and solution focused as suits your current needs and readiness for change.
Whilst working within a variety of settings in both the private and public sector, I have focused on adult mental health (specialising in working with people with emotional regulation difficulties and personality disorder), and continue to do
so with a part time post within the NHS.
The best place to start is a telephone call by way of introduction and to identify the nature of your interest in therapy. This 15-20 minute call is free of charge and there is no obligation to have a follow-on session(s).
The next step would be an initial session. For therapy to feel effective there needs to be a ‘fit’ (both of the person(s) attending the therapy and the therapist) therefore at the end of this initial session, upon mutual agreement, we would either contract for a further 2 or 3 sessions to establish a formulation and therapy plan (type and duration of therapy) or I could refer you to alternative resources for more appropriate support.
