About me

Dr Jenna Brough 
Perinatal Clinical Psychologist

My journey to becoming a mother

led me to discover my true passion in psychology 


I'm Dr Jenna Brough, I've worked with people experiencing emotional distress and mental health difficulties for over 14 years, and I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 2016.

I am a HCPC registered practitioner psychologist, and have worked across different mental health settings, with children, adolescents, and adults. I now specialise in supporting people on their journey to becoming parents, from trying to conceive right through to the first few years of growing as a parent, as a person, or as a couple. 


I founded my perinatal private practice after my own experiences on the journey to starting and growing our family, which many of us expect to be much easier and happier than it turns out to be. Navigating the services associated with our experiences, I was struck by the lack of consideration or support available for the emotional and psychological impact of such common difficulties. I decided that I wanted to use my skills and experience as a Clinical Psychologist, combined with the knowledge from my lived experience, to support people going through their own difficult journeys to and through becoming parents. 


I'm experienced in a range of psychological therapies. I work integratively, with a focus on trauma, compassion, and acceptance based approaches. I am EMDR trained and I also draw on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Systemic and Narrative therapies to offer a responsive approach tailored to your individual needs.


In addition to direct psychological therapy, I also offer a range of workshops, training courses, and supervision for professionals supporting people in the perinatal period. 


I believe strongly that many mental health difficulties could be prevented and the perinatal period could be a more contented experience for a lot of people with better support from services and our communities. I support the perinatal community through activism, free content on social media, and my podcast The Perinatal Podcast: Growing Through.

If you are a professional or organisation looking for support with your work, I offer consultation, supervision, training, and workshops. If my courses for professionals do not meet your needs please get in touch to discuss how I can support you.
