Let us help you to thrive in pregnancy and parenthood

Psychological Therapy

Are you finding it hard to enjoy your pregnancy because you just can't stop thinking about the worst-case scenario? Or has sickness and pain left you feeling exhausted and desperate? Or perhaps you feel so low you aren't able to be the parent you want to be to your children?  Our team of highly specialised Clinical Psychologists provide evidence-based psychological therapy to help with problems such as pre and postnatal depression, anxiety, OCD and recovery from a traumatic birth.

EMDR Therapy

Did your birth leave you feeling out of control and frightened? Often when we have been through a traumatic birth we can find ourselves thinking about it a lot, feeling overwhelmed with strong feelings of sadness or anxiety and struggling to relax and enjoy parenthood. If you are still living with the physical and emotional consequences of a traumatic birth EMDR therapy can help you to regain control. You deserve to feel free to enjoy parenthood.

Dr Rosie Gilderthorp

Clinical Psychologist and Founder

Our founder, Dr Rosie Gilderthorp, is a Clinical Psychologist with over 15 years of experience in mental health helping parents to overcome mental health difficulties, connect with their values and thrive personally and professionally.

Rosie experienced severe pregnancy sickness (sometimes called HG) while pregnant with her first child. Her experience of attempting to continue working in the NHS as a Clinical Psychologist, a role that gave her a sense of identity and meaning, while facing the steepest challenge of her life led her to struggle with her own mental health.

 

Since then she has been dedicated to helping other parents going through challenging circumstances to maintain their sense of self and hope so they can thrive at home and at work.

Research

In partnership with the Innovation in Mental Health Project CIC, Dr Fional Challecombe (Kings College London) and Dr Claudia Hallet (South London and Maudsley NHS Trust)

Know Your Mind is committed to research and innovation to support the mental health of parents. We are currently studying the impact of severe pregnancy sickness on mental health and possible ways to make evidence-based psychological intervention more readily available. 

If you have experienced severe sickness (sometimes called Hyperemesis Gravidarum) during pregnancy and you would like to support our research please contact me at rosie@knowyourmindconsulting.com
