ABOUT

VILLAGE THERAPY

Village Therapy was founded by a mama, for mamas, because conception, pregnancy and parenting isn't easy and it really does take a village. We are specialists in maternal mental health and provide telephone and video therapy sessions.

 

Wherever you are on your journey, we are here to help you through. Village Therapy provides "on-the-go" counselling, by way of telephone or live video chat,  to women and their partners to address mental health concerns during any stage of the perinatal period; from preconception to parenting.
