Dr Adrienne Brown
B.A. (Hons), DPsych (Clinical)
Adrienne’s passion for working in the area of perinatal psychology began when she fell pregnant with her first child in 2013. Since then she has worked with a growing number of men and women, providing support with infertility, childbirth preparation, adjustment to parenting, and mental health concerns. Her personal values of openness, honesty, and respect extend to her professional life and are central to her practice. She specialises in mindfulness-based therapies however utilises a range of therapeutic modalities depending on client need (e.g., Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, Schema Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy).
Adrienne also facilitates mindfulness-based antenatal courses through her business Mindful Beginnings. Her aim is to empower participants in their transition to parenthood, which means equipping them with the skills to manage pregnancy symptoms, cope with uncertainty and unmet expectations, feel confident in coping with stress, anxiety, fear and labour pain, understand the powerful role of the mind in labour, address self-care and wellbeing needs, and bond with their baby. Fathers and birth partners are also provided guidance on how to support the birthing woman during labour.
