Counselling & Listening Music Therapy

At Baby Loss Retreat, we work alongside fully qualified bereavement counsellors who can provide you with 1 to 1 or counselling for couples in person or on Zoom.
Counselling is an effective way of supporting individuals after the loss of a baby and is an opportunity to talk about your emotions in a safe space.

We have noticed more and more clients, particularly males, struggling to access and express their emotions making it difficult to fully engage with counselling intervention. From this we started the Listening Music Therapy service which helps support further.

Here you can read about how Counselling and Listening Music Therapy works.

Lorraine uses her skills as a trained counsellor combined with Listening Music Therapy as a way to help individuals access and express their emotions following early baby loss.

Sue Hutchinson

Somatic Trauma Therapist

Grief is such a personal thing and sometimes it can be overwhelming.

This is especially true when you lose a child – it can feel unbelievably cruel and there’s no sense to it. And for many women there’s the added trauma of the birthing experience itself which can be very scary. And for their partners there’s often a sense of utter helplessness as they are unable to do anything to help. This type of experience can be hard to process and move on from. Clients have spoken to me about “feeling like they are falling apart” and about “finding it difficult to get on with everyday living”.

This is where Somatic Trauma Therapy can help. We help clients to understand what’s happening in their body and why. We work with each person on an individual basis to help them to calm their nervous system so that they start to feel more like themselves again.

Sometimes people find it very difficult to talk about their traumatic experience. The good thing about Somatic Trauma Therapy is that talking is not the starting point. We have techniques to help your nervous system to relax by working with the sensations that you are feeling in your body. Over time you can let go of the fear, anger, despair, flashbacks and any other physical symptoms of trauma you are experiencing.

With over 20 years of experience in a range of holistic therapies, I have worked with many clients and have repeatedly seen the positive difference that Somatic Trauma Therapy has made to people’s lives. It’s a gentle and effective therapy that works.
