About womenhood

for women who are childless not by choice


At WomenHood I provide specialist support for women who are childless not by choice, or childless by circumstance. I started WomenHood Counselling because I wanted to make a positive difference for Australian women without children. I've heard so many stories from women who have felt misunderstood, unsupported, or alone with their losses. And, I get it. We live in a world where having children is the default expectation, it's the norm, and we're flooded with media and messages about motherhood that don't match our experience as childless women. Women without children often say that their relationships are impacted by their situation, that family and friends don't really understand, and they grieve silently. Well, it doesn't have to be like that! I began WomenHood so that women without children can find the understanding and support they deserve.

Please have a look around the website for more about counselling and groups at WomenHood, follow me on facebook @WomenHoodCounselling to keep up to date with events, or give me a call to talk about how I can help. If I don't have what you're looking for, I'll do my best to provide relevant referrals for you.

Qualifications and Experience

At WomenHood I bring together professional training and personal experience to help other women who are childless not by choice. I draw on over 20 years of experience working with women in the health and community sector and I am disability and diversity friendly. With qualifications in education and counselling, I enjoy working one to one in the counselling setting and also facilitating group work and peer support. I hold registration as a counsellor with the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia and that means I undertake regular supervision and ongoing professional development to maintain professional standards and accountability.

My own experience of childlessness underpins my work at WomenHood. It fuels the compassion and kindness I bring to other women and also helps me shine a light on hope and possibility for living a life of purpose, meaning and connection. If you’re looking for a professional counsellor who will understand and care, please get in touch, I’m looking forward to meeting you.
