According to the NHS 1 in 7 couples struggle to conceive, and for those who have been excited to welcome a baby into their lives months of disappointment can take their toll on their mental health.
Couples are often told ‘just to relax’ which is much easier said than done! Putting your conception journey out of your mind during the two week wait, whilst symptom spotting, or trying to hide your disappointment when you have a negative test, or seeing others around you fall pregnant when it hasn’t happened yet for you is not relaxing!
The science behind the ‘relax’ argument is real, with stress affecting hormones which are vital in conception, so how can I to help relax you?
Hypnotherapy is generally very relaxing! During a hypnotic induction we coach you through relaxing every part of your body and mind until you are comfortably relaxed into a trance like state, even without any of the other ‘work’ that we do within hypnosis many people say just the induction has instilled a calm in them that they haven’t felt for a long time.
Hypnotherapy can help you to feel in control, using positive suggestions hypnotherapy can help reframe your mind to feel more confident and in charge of your conception journey.
Using NLP and CBT techniques I can give you coping mechanisms that you can take away with you and use during any moments when you would normally feel stressed/upset/frustrated
During a face to face (in person or over zoom) therapy session you can expect a bespoke treatment tailored exactly to your needs, we can unlock any blocks you may be carrying around at your own pace and build custom suggestions to move your emotions from what you have been experiencing, to the emotions you really want to experience.
