male infertility councellor in London area


I just wondered if anyone had been/or seen a male infertility councellor in the London area. I think my dh would benefit from seeing a councellor, and especially a bloke as opposed to a female councellor.

RE: male infertility councellor in London area


a male infertility councellor in the London area.

There are a few of us about, but not many.

The fertility counselling association, BICA (British Infertility Counselling Association) of which I am a member, do have some male counsellors I think. You would need to go on to their website and look at their membership. There is a list giving names and contact details.

Otherwise you could think about telephone counselling if there is no-one near enough. An experienced general counsellor who is male might be a possible substitute, as the point of DH's counselling is for him to talk about his feelings rather than his sperm count. However I have always felt that a knowledge of the fertility field on the part of the counsellor gives the counselling process more credibility and relevance. Which was why I as a scientist became also a counsellor.

Let me know how you get on.
