Many people are affected by adoption, and the impact of this is lifelong.
Each person in the adoption triangle will have his or her own unique experience. Whether you are an adopter, adoptee or birth parent, or a family member, you may feel a time has come that you could do with talking about your experience and get support and help to understand how adoption has affected you.
Some of the difficulties that can be experienced are relationship difficulties, fear of rejection, confusion, frustration, turmoil, a sense of loss, to name a few.
If you have adopted and are having difficulties with adjusting, I can offer Attachment Focused Counselling, where we can look at ways to help with attachment.
I am an Adoption Approved Counsellor under Link Adoption Support Services (Barnardos).
