I think one of the main components of infertility is the concept of loneliness for women, back to our collective unconscious image of what life should be like, you know, maybe getting married, married, finding out you're having a baby, and everything being happy, and, you know, and it's just one of life's natural progressions, one of life's natural stages. And for women that reach an age or maybe decide that they want to start a family and then spend one, two, three years trying, they can feel very alone in that. They can be surrounded by people that are constantly announcing that they're having babies, and, you know, that can be a very lonely place. And I think the way counselling can help is to give a very open space for women to express some of those feelings, and also to look at what the options are for them in the future, you know, to accept that it's not ideal, this is not what they would've wanted, and at the same time giving them hope as to what, perhaps, a new family situation might look like.
