Welcome to the newest member of the team – Elaine

❤️A huge warm welcome to Elaine Tritschler who joins our team as from today ❤️ We have 3 counsellors who are staff and all working at this time supporting families. Here’s a little about Elaine in her own words 💗

‘My challenges in becoming a parent led me into a career in Counselling.
I qualified in 2016 and I am a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and BICA (British Infertility Counselling Association) and adhere to the ethical guidelines to ensure safe and contained counselling practice. I have worked as a counsellor in general practice, for mental health charities and in private independent practice. I currently work as part of the Counselling Service for Glasgow Centre for Reproductive Medicine (EdinburghSatellite Clinic) and Monklands Infertility Unit.
As a counsellor, I believe the therapeutic relationship is the most important intervention in counselling. Counselling offers exploration of new ways to live with the pain of loss while still having hope for the future.
I aim to offer a warm, compassionate and healing space for parents to talk about their much-loved baby so they can integrate their loss into their lives and explore ways of mourning and honouring their baby. It is a privilege to care and provide a safe space for families in one of the darkest human experiences.
I am very proud to be a part of Held in our Hearts and in my first week I have felt the empathy, connection and love from the team which is central to the ethos of the charity’.
