during fertility treatment
As you explore or start fertility treatment, you will be offered to see a psychologist or a counsellor. This pretreatment counselling session helps you prepare.

and chronic pain
As a woman, you might be juggling different roles in your life and occasionally feel that it’s ‘too much’. At Woom, you are in a safe and calm environment to work on your coping mechanisms and to get clear about what is causing pressure in your life.

If your mood is impacted by chronic pain (for example pelvic pain and period pain), then the first step is to see our multidisciplinary team here at Woom in West Perth: your gynaecologist, to get a diagnosis, your psychologist to reinforce your coping skills, and your women’s health physiotherapist to manage and control the pain.

So how can your psychologist help? As you go through the tests or the treatment, you have enough on your plate and enough emotions to deal with, without the emotional charge that your loved ones may bring to the table.
