English speaking counselor
Hannah Meason specializes in supporting parents who are experiencing depression, anxiety, stress and emotional discord. Qualifying with her Bachelors in Education and Social Services and then with her Masters in Social Work in Scotland, Hannah has spent the last 15 years specializing in children and family work, attachment and bonding and trauma recovery. Hannah uses a mixed-methods approach with her clients, drawing on both counselling and psychotherapeutic methods. Her work is often systemic and focused on assisting clients in finding their own solutions, recognizing that each individual is an expert in their own life.
Hannah is the founder of Together With You STHLM, a service that focuses on supporting new parents. Becoming a new parent can throw up all sorts of emotions, bringing up past experiences earlier in life, as well as new difficult experiences. You do not need a diagnosis of Postnatal/ Postpartum Depression from a doctor to seek support as a new parent. For women who have experienced difficult pregnancies, a traumatic birth, adoption processes or a rocky start to motherhood it is important to be able to talk about this in a safe and supportive environment.
Evidence has taught us perinatal depression and anxiety for both women and men can be triggered during pregnancy and up to 2 years following birth, and the symptoms can last for years if not properly addressed.
Simply taking time to talk about what you are experiencing and normalizing these feelings can help you to gain the insight and control to feel better and begin to enjoy parenthood more.
