If you are told that you have unexplained infertility or infertility with a cause you may be feeling lost, confused and alone (I did!). You may be trying to be strong and hiding how you feel; it can take over your life.
How Hypnotherapy and Coaching can help Fertility
- promotes deep relaxation
- to deal with your feelings or fears
- clear any negative beliefs or blocks
- support you to move forward
- supporting men and women
- take back control of your life
- research has shown increased success rates with IVF over 50%
- support through investigations and treatments
Stress can dramatically affect fertility and when you are in a state of hypnosis you cannot feel stressed. When under stress the body goes into the fight or flight response; this is a natural response that the brain uses to react to a threat, the brain sends all the body’s resources to deal with this threat making your body ready to fight or run. This leaves the reproductive system mostly shut down.
You cannot be forced under hypnosis and you can still resist any suggestion made to you under hypnosis; you remain in complete control. You can attend as a couple or alone. I also provide you with hypnotherapy recordings (his and hers) for you to listen to regularly.
Studies have also shown that there is a positive influence through hypnotic suggestion on bodily functions such as blood pressure and heart rate, and that hypnosis has been shown to impact the hypothalamus in the brain and influence the release of hormones.
When I was told that I had unexplained infertility I felt very alone and confused, I was obsessed by it and then distraught by the monthly disappointments. After all the investigations I became pregnant on the Clomid medication but miscarried twice; we were devastated. I felt that my dreams had been shot to pieces and that no one understood me. By then I was 40 and had to look at privately funding the IVF which was very expensive and I needed to use a donor egg to have a chance of getting pregnant; I could not face the IVF process. My friends were all having children and I felt that I was an outsider. My friendships changed as we had less in common and there was an enourmous amount of pressue put on our marriage. I wish I had known about the use of hypnotherapy with fertility at that time as i now know that my negative thinking and stress levels were having a huge impact on my mind and body.
I am passionate about supporting people using hypnotherapy at any stage of your fertility investigations or treatments or if you are at the stage of wanting to move on with your life.
I provide Hypnosis for Fertility in Burston, Diss and Norwich in Norfolk and in Bury St.Edmunds, Woolpit and Eye in Suffolk.
A free initial phone consultation is available.
I hold a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling skills and I am a certified Fertility 2 Birth Practitioner and Energy 4 Life Wellness Coach. I also do Reiki Healing which promotes the body’s natural ability to heal itself and it is deeply relaxing.
This has been a really interesting experience and I have learnt a lot about myself. Karen has a very special quality about her. Thanks!L.W. - Norfolk
