Your guide through
the parenting journey

With Dr Emma Svanberg & The Psychology Collective

Pregnancy, birth and parenthood…. It’s hard to make the choices that feel right for you.

I’m here to help.

Together with a collective of specialist psychologists, I provide non-judgemental support to help you explore the difficulties you’re facing. Wherever you are on the parenting journey, I help you find confidence as a person as well as a parent.  


Glad to have you here. I’m Emma Svanberg, an award-winning Clinical Psychologist and writer, working with parents, parents-to-be and professionals.  Throughout your pregnancy, birth or parenting journey, I can offer in person and online support, you’re welcome to join one of my communities or have a look at a course.  I also offer bespoke advice, teaching and training to professionals, write and campaign on issues related to perinatal mental health and parenting, and speak at events, workshops and panels.

I work with a collective of other highly experienced psychologists to provide a whole-family, evidence-based service to you as a parent, a professional or a collaborator.

Whatever has brought you here, welcome!

In May 2020, I was awarded the Innovation Award from the British Psychological Society  🎉

What I offer…


You might be looking for some information to help yourself through an online course. Or perhaps you’re seeking the solidarity of a community. Maybe you’re ready to explore therapy for yourself, your child, or as a couple. 




You might want to talk about your work with parents or parents-to-be. Maybe you are looking for a quote for your book or article. Or you would like an experienced psychologist to write for you, to speak at an event or teach a workshop or class.
