We provide a free and confidential service where you can talk through what is happening for you, what you are feeling and explore any decisions you want to make.
Reflect offers listening support including;
- Making a pregnancy decision
- Pregnancy loss
- Abortion care
- Infertility support

When we go through difficult times in our lives we often feel alone. Even if we are surrounded by people who care it can be difficult to feel able to really talk through what you are feeling. Sometimes you need to talk with someone who is not involved. Our reflect team are here to listen to you and help you get things off your chest.
Our reflect team provide quiet, confidential spaces.
We offer support through telephone, online video and webchat. For some clients we can also offer face to face support.
Appointments last for 50 minutes and will take place at a prearranged time.

Who can access Reflect?
You can access Reflect if you:
- are deciding about continuing or ending a pregnancy
- want more information about abortion and how to prepare
- have experienced an abortion and would like some support
- have experienced a pregnancy loss
- have lost a baby through still birth
- are experiencing infertility
- are pregnant and are thinking about releasing your baby for adoption

For some people it can take many years to be able to talk about what they have been through. This is OK. Sometimes we support people decades after they have experienced a loss. Whenever you are ready we are here to be alongside you.
If you are under 25 then you will be supported by our specialist youth team.
If you are already working with a counsellor, we may ask that you wait until you have finished working with them before accessing our service.
I need an appointment quickly!
Those who are facing a difficult pregnancy decision can expect to be seen very soon after getting in touch, this can normally be arranged within a few days.
If you need longer term support we will offer you a first session where you will talk things through with a team member who will help decide with you how to support you best.
This may be over the telephone , online or face to face. They will also decide which team member would be best to support you. Support normally last for 12 sessions.
There may be a wait for counselling, our team are working quickly to support people as soon as possible. We understand that you have taken courage to ask for help and are at the point of being ready for support.
We have put together some resources that you might find helpful while we work on arranging an appointment for you.
