Here to support Newcastle Women, Men & Families

Welcome to Forest for the Trees Perinatal Psychology. We are Newcastle Clinical Psychologists and Psychologists here to support you throughout the perinatal period – providing counselling and therapy for pregnancy planning, whilst pregnant and during the postnatal period. Our goal is to bring out your best and to help you live a happier, calmer and more meaningful life.

We are a psychology practice located in Cooks Hill, Newcastle, NSW, and we offer warm and genuine care and psychological counselling for women and their families in the perinatal period and beyond. We are dedicated to providing authentic and quality psychological support and counselling.

The experience of becoming a parent is often a time of great happiness and fulfilment. However, for some people this can be an overwhelming experience, during which they have difficulty seeing the forest for the trees.
