Hypnosis & Fertility
I am a trained and registered Fertile Body Method practitioner. The Fertile Body Method combines hypnosis and other mind-body approaches to help identify and address the mental, emotional and physical factors which may be affecting your fertility.
I have had the privilege of training with Sjanie Hugo who developed the Fertile Body Method. The Fertile Body Method applies hypnosis and mind-body approaches to help treat and support women, and their partners, going through the complex challenge of treating infertility or other related conditions.
The Fertile Body Method can be used to addresses many of the negative effects of infertility aiming to reduce stress, calm and control - with the intention of increasing fertility.
Reducing stress and increasing feelings of calm and relaxation
Restoring physical, mental and emotional balance and wellbeing
Balance can be restored through relaxation, positive cognitive changes, visualisation and changes to diet, exercise and lifestyle
Creating balance in the body can be further enhanced by creating balance in thinking.
Decreasing negative self talk and excessive worry will help restore emotional and physical balance and ensure that these changes are maintained.
Identifying and resolving issues which may be preventing conception (unconscious or conscious resistance).
By restoring physical, mental and emotional balance and by identifying unconscious and conscious issues around assisted conception, it is hoped that this complex process can be made easier. I provide support and self-help tools that can be used to reduce frustration, stress, anxiety or even, perhaps, any sense of hopelessness or dejection.
Frequently people undergoing infertility treatments lose trust in their own body, feeling that their body is now completely in the hands of medical interventions. Or you may have concerns about taking a pregnancy to full term or even about becoming a parent. All these issues, and more, can be addressed. This holistic mind body method aims to support you and your partner during this challenging journey.
How do you approach hypnotherapy and fertility?
Every woman is unique and so is every woman's fertility journey. In our first session, we'll talk about what you want to achieve. Using solution focused questions we'll get to a detailed and specific goal for therapy. Through this process we'll identify significant markers along the path to this goal, as well as some of the resources you may need to get there. We'll discuss the number of sessions it may take to get there and I will help support you to maintain the positive changes you make in your life once you'll reached your goal.
Hypnosis is a powerful state for facilitating emotional and physiological change.
