Hypnotherapy for Fertility – Wokingham
Working with couples who’ve been trying to conceive both naturally and via IVF is incredibly rewarding. I've so far helped over 400 + couples to conceive, using a range of techniques. Fertility Hypnotherapy being a very effective intervention.
I’m passionate about helping women and their partners who are finding the journey to parenthood a challenging one that may be punctuated by heartache and the trauma that fertility issues can bring.
Fertility difficulties can often cause feelings of anger, jealousy, inadequacy and guilt over a perceived ‘failure’ to achieve something that seems to come so naturally to others.
When couples are given a diagnosis, or in many cases are told they have unexplained infertility, I will work with them to determine what lifestyle factors could be affecting their ability to conceive.
Some couples need help losing weight or following a healthy diet, while others need assistance with motivation and exercise. Those who are drinking excess alcohol, caffeine or who are smoking can benefit from reprogramming to eliminate these detrimental habits using fertility hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy can empower you to release negatives, let go of fears, come to terms with their difficulties and feel confident and positive moving forward.
Some women have unresolved trauma that may hinder their ability to conceive. A traumatic miscarriage or birth, issues from childhood, past relationships or negative parenting styles can all become obstacles to conception. Fertility Hypnotherapy can help to change behavioural patterns and remove the impact of negative experiences.
Couples going through IVF can really benefit from having Fertility Hypnotherapy, with studies suggesting that implantation success rates are much higher in couples that have undergone hypnosis. Having someone support you through the IVF journey using hypnotherapy can be of benefit not only mentally but physically due to the mind and the body being so interconnected.http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/3849727.stm
Stress and Fertility
Many couples work to fix all physical aspects of themselves when it comes to trying for a baby, but neglect to look at the mental toll of infertility. Stress and being in a negative spiral can have a detrimental impact on the whole body, particularly the delicate hormonal system. Sometimes extreme stress can be the cause of infertility. Being in a fight or flight response can cause the body to channel blood away from the reproductive organs in an attempt to keep the body from harm.
Fertility Hypnotherapy can readdress the balance, by helping you reduce stress levels significantly. Learning self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques can often alleviate stress in a gentle and nurturing way. These tools will help you deal with negative beliefs and become more optimistic and positive about trying for a baby.
