CARE Support Co-ordinator
Kelly Da Silva, our CARE Support Coordinator, facilitates our support sessions.
As a former patient, Founder of a support organisation, and a practitioner of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Therapist, Kelly specialises in working with people at all stages of their fertility journey, and is passionate about ensuring patients have the support they need.
During COVID-19, we remain absolutely dedicated to making sure all our patients are fully supported, wherever you are in your fertility journey. In this video, Kelly Da Silva – our Patient Support Coordinator – talks though our peer-to-peer 'CARE Buddy' support system and our Skype support groups, including what to expect and how to get involved.
If you have any questions, would like more information, or wish to be involved in any of our peer-to-peer support, please email Kelly.
Meet other people going through the IVF journey in the comfort of your own home and learn some useful techniques for dealing with the emotional aspects of your IVF journey.
Each session will have a theme and input from either Kelly, our support coordinator, or guest speakers. There will be opportunities to talk about your experience, if you wish, and ask questions about dealing with the emotional and social aspects of IVF.
Get your walking boots on and join us once a month for a gentle 5K CARE Walk ‘n’ Talk IVF Support Event.
Walk 'n' Talk Therapy provides a unique method of support. Instead of a formal therapy approach, these sessions are relaxed and informal, taking place whilst walking in the English countryside. This method is perfect if you want to incorporate exercise and fresh air whilst gaining support and connecting with others going through the IVF journey.
Upcoming Walk 'n' Talk events:
Whether you have a fertility problem or are the partner of someone having treatment, we consider everyone involved with fertility treatment at CARE as one of our patients, and therefore has access to all the support we offer. We understand that men can sometimes find it more difficult to open up about their fertility, but speaking with someone about your experiences, whether a counsellor or another patient, can help you to process your emotions and find support.
Upcoming Male Focus Online Support Group events:
There are many other ways we can support you through your fertility journey, including with our CARE Buddy system, where you can both give and receive advice from another CARE patient at a similar stage of fertility treatment, or through free appointments with CARE’s specialist fertility counsellors. We also regularly hold IVF information events, where you can ask your questions live to one of our experts.
If you would like more information about how we can support you during your fertility treatment, please feel free to call your local CARE team, who will happily answer any questions you have - we are always here to support, reassure and advise you.
