The Acorn Centre offers comprehensive counselling service for a baby loss through a miscarriage or further on in a pregnancy and post abortion.
At the Acorn Centre they provide a confidential, calm and supportive environment where they can help you to talk about how you are feeling. You will be able to discuss your baby loss with a trained counsellor and explain what it means to you and your family.
The service is provided by volunteers who have all attained or are near completion of their Level 4 Diplomas in Therapeutic Counselling and receive regular ongoing support and supervision.
Each session costs £20.00, which reflects the basic costs of providing our service but assistance with the fee may be available for those who need it (see below). The £20.00 fee includes room hire, supervision for the counsellor, insurance and basic administration costs.
