New Aspect Counselling Counselling and Fertility Counselling in Bristol and Online

Fertility Counselling 

I am a member of the British Infertility Counselling Association (BICA) and I offer counselling for individuals undergoing fertility treatment, or those who are looking for a space to talk through an infertility diagnosis.

The prospect of infertility is often incredibly painful and anxiety provoking. I offer a safe and non-judgmental place to help you work through your experience and to support you as you decide how to move forward.

I am happy to work with all genders around their experience of infertility. I specialise in offering male Infertility counseling.

Male infertility is linked to around half of all couple infertility problems, but there is often a stigma around talking about male infertility. Men's feelings around an infertility diagnosis can be lost amongst the appointments and medical processes. My aim is to counter this by offering a safe environment to talk about the impact of an infertility diagnosis. For those that are undergoing fertility treatment I offer support to understand the process and implications, and to have a space to talk about issues that come up throughout treatment.

Many men suffering with infertility report feelings of guilt and isolation, of feeling outside of the fertility treatment process. I offer a place to talk through the diagnosis, and the impact this has on self-esteem self image, and feelings around masculinity, alongside the uncertainty of the fertility treatment process. Havng a space to talk through the fertility treatment process can help to reduce stress and anxiety at this time.

Some couples may choose not to undergo fertility treatment, or treatment may not be successful, I also offer support to talk through the prospect of living without children, and building a meaningful life despite this. 


I offer potential clients a free initial phone call to help explain how therapy works and to discuss what they would like to get from therapy.

If you have any questions or would like to book a call, please contact me here.



"I began seeing Chris at a time when I was struggling to come to terms with multiple problems, but primarily with my male infertility. I felt like the script of my life had been torn up, like a failure, and my relationship with my partner was under strain. We also felt let down and slightly excluded by an industry, whose processes seemed largely tailored to female infertility treatments and IVF.

Regular sessions with Chris really helped me to navigate out of those difficult times and reach a much happier destination in my life, with acceptance and understanding. I became a better communicator with my partner, and with a much less busy and anxious brain. I felt galvanised to make positive changes in my life. He offers a safe non-judgemental space, is an extremely attentive listener and would regularly surprise me with his recall. He helped to recognise patterns in my thinking and behaviour, often using metaphors and playing things back in a way that I could see the bias in my negative thoughts. Thank you Chris."


"You were really impressive in the way in which you listened, understood, accepted and reflected back to me. Your powers of recall are really strong, and you were skilled at helping me to see connections between themes that I hadn’t recognised before. You created with me some metaphors which really aided my understanding, and gave me some good insights into ways in which I can enjoy life more. "


"I found working with Chris extremely helpful at a time when I needed a safe place to talk and impartial, unbiased support. For me, there was huge value in having therapy with a reliable person who I felt really listened and cared for my wellbeing. My time spent working with Chris has helped me to begin to recognise my own unhealthy patterns and I am now going forward with this awareness available to me."
