Suzanne Fowler Evans

Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Antenatal Coach

My name is Suzanne Fowler Evans and I am a fully qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, accredited by the National Counselling Society (NCS) . I have experience working with all kinds of personal issues and offer an individual and gentle approach. Due to my previous work I have a particular interest in relationships and attachment, all aspects of pregnancy, birth and becoming a parent, including birth trauma and post-natal depression for mothers and their partners. I am committed to offering support to both parents during your journey from conception to birth and beyond and help you understand your feelings and enhance your long-term emotional wellbeing.


I have been working with the parenting charity NCT, for over 20 years, facilitating antenatal courses and supporting new parents.  I also offer Birth Coaching to individuals and couples, to assist them to make informed decisions around their birth choices.  In 2008 I studied for and gained a BA in Educational Studies (NCT) and I have worked with the charity to develop courses and train new antenatal teachers.

My passion for mental health started early on during my work with pregnant women and their partners. In 2022 I qualified as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor achieving a Level 5 Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling Practice (Prof.Dip Psy C).

I am really excited to be able to combine my practical experience and counselling qualification to offer this level of professional support to all soon to be or new parents and facilitate their journey towards better mental health and a more helpful outlook to fertility, pregnancy, birth and beyond.


I trained in a pluralistic approach which means I combine person centred, psychodynamic and CBT approaches. My aim is to offer everyone a safe and confidential space to explore how they are feeling and why.

Sometimes life’s challenges can feel overwhelming and having the opportunity to talk through your present emotions and feelings is all you need to see things more clearly. Other times our feelings have deep roots and discovering our unique foundations can lead to a liberating insight into who we are and why.

If you are feeling anxious and not able to cope introducing some CPD can give you immediate tools to deal with the here and now and help you see a more manageable future.

We are all individuals, and my aim is to help you recognise your own thoughts and behaviours and find a way forward for you which will have a positive impact on your loved ones too.


I have been working with soon to be and new parents for over 20 years, I have a BA in Educational Studies specialising in facilitating antenatal courses. In 2018 I started to train as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, my initial reason was to support new parents and their changing relationships.

However, as my training progressed, I developed more of an interest in all aspects of becoming a parent, including conception, IVF and anxiety around labour and birth. I also became increasingly aware of how our own experiences of being parented can trigger anxiety about becoming a parent ourselves.  During my work antenatally, I hear parents concerns about how to involve their own parents and in laws once the baby arrives, while maintaining boundaries around their own new family. Dads and partners often feel isolated and depressed once the new baby has arrived as relationships shift and change.

I support new mothers through their own anxiety and depression around coping with a new baby. Feeding, lack of sleep, unmet expectations of support are some reasons why early parenting can be so challenging. We often live in diverse and extended families, combining siblings and stepchildren can bring more situations to negotiate and being a Grandparent can also raise questions and concerns.

My aim is to offer support to everyone involved in welcoming the new baby into the family. Since qualifying as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, I have also studied the Neuroscience of a baby and young child’s brain development and am a qualified 3 Step Rewind Practitioner.
