Fertility Assessment

ARIA SUPPORT HUB.

At Aria Fertility Clinic, we understand that fertility treatment is a huge emotional commitment and our caring and empathetic staff work hard to ensure you feel supported every step of the way. We offer patients the opportunity to access counselling support from the very beginning of their journey.

Here is also a guide to some of the organisations offering fertility support, advice and information.

Counselling

Support is available for all patients and donors attending the Aria Fertility Clinic before, during and following treatment.

Call us on +44 (0) 203 263 6025 or email us at admin@ariafertility.co.uk to discuss our counselling service in more detail.

To access more counselling options, the British Infertility Counselling Association (BICA) is a registered charity and is recognised by the HFEA and British Fertility Society.

Fertility Counselling

We work closely with Senior Fertility Counsellor Tracey Sainsbury who provides counselling for individuals and couples around all fertility issues.

“My therapeutic approach acknowledges how our conscious and unconscious belief systems are transformed when we are contemplating conception. I believe we experience a paradigm shift when we are ready to parent and this in itself can promote us being too hard on ourselves, especially around stress.”

Tracey ensures you have the strategies and resources to create your own toolkit to promote self care, helping to manage stress so it doesn’t become a problem.

Tracey offers a reduced fee for counselling appointments for people exploring or progressing treatment with Aria. The cost is £50 per appointment, appointments are always provided online via Zoom or Teams and last around 50-60 minutes.
