Clinical Psychology

A person suffering from the woe of infertility or childlessness can go through a series of complex issues spanning biological, physical, social, and even ethical domains. Clinical psychology, therefore comes into the picture as an extremely vital sphere in keeping the emotional balance of the individual(s) involved intact.


As a formal definition, counselling can be described as “an interpersonal process, within the confines of a theoretical framework, the single most important purpose of which being to bring about a change in a skilled and systematic manner.”

Counselling in infertility hence aims at exploring, understanding and resolving issues arising as a result of infertility and also its treatment. It seeks to refine different ways of dealing with this issue more effectively.
