Postnatal Depression Support Group

 

The Cedar House Support Groups are for women who are experiencing postnatal depression. The groups provide a safe and supportive environment where mothers can get together with others who may be feeling similar to themselves. This helps their recovery by normalising feelings and reducing the sense of isolation that postnatal depression can bring.

 

The groups are facilitated by a trained and experienced counsellor, Liz Wise, who has been supporting mothers and facilitating  support groups for twenty five years. Having had severe PND after both her children she knows what a difference groups like this can make to a mother’s recovery.

 

The Surrey Group (TONGHAM)
This group is at St Paul's Children's Centre, The Cardinals, Tongham  GU10 1EF and runs every Wednesday term time only from 9.45 to 11.45am.  A free crèche is provided and there is free parking but it is necessary to book a place.
 
The groups are relaxed and informal and you do not have to talk if you don't want to. Some mothers find it just as useful to come along and listen to others talking about their feelings, which will help to normalise your own feelings and make you realise that you are not on your own with how you feel. All our groups are totally confidential.
