It is widely acknowledged that assisted conception can be joyful at times but also stressful. Issues of loss can be experienced alongside worry and upset. Counselling can be used specifically for issues related to treatment, for example implications for the use of donor eggs, sperm, embryos and surrogacy, and also offers a supportive, confidential environment to all patients, couples and individuals receiving treatment at the centre.

“I never fail to learn from my patients and feel privileged and humble to do the work that I do. I very much enjoy being part of the team at the clinic and that we all work towards the shared goal of taking good care of our patients.”
