Fertility Hypnosis - how could it support you?
For Natural and Assisted Conception including IVF
Fertility Hypnosis aims to:
- Reduce your stress and anxiety. Hypnosis is a natural way to increase feelings of calm and relaxation; as it lowers stress it enables the key fertility hormones to be more in balance.
- Restore your confidence and self esteem as they may take a knock during the process.
- Restore your mental and emotional balance. Work through any emotions such as anger, jealousy, guilt, stress, anxiety and depression which may be hindering conception.
- Resolve issues which may be preventing conception whether this be fear, anxiety about pregnancy or a personal issue.
- Improve any relationship issues including building your confidence in areas of intimacy.
- Support you to make decisions about fertility treatments and other options for parenthood.
- Reduce the emotional effects of any fertility medication.
- If necessary help you come to terms with infertility.
"I would recommend Jo, she creates tailored sessions that are adapted for you with a combination of face-to-face sessions, practical exercises and downloads that you can listen to at home."
Why Jo Simons – Fertility Hypnotherapist
Although everyone’s fertility issue is unique, you still may benefit from seeing someone who can relate to your journey.
I suffered with unexplained infertility and the roller coaster of emotions and stress this can bring. After undertaking treatments including IVF and IUI, I am now a mother, so can empathise with your feelings of anxiety without the emotion getting in the way.
This is an area of specialism for me and I am proud to be working in partnership with Boston Place Clinic, one of London’s leading IVF clinics. I support their patients with Fertility Hypnosis and Reflexology Programmes throughout their assisted conception programs.
I have undertaken additional specialist Fertility Hypnosis and nlp training and am also a Baby Quest Practitioner. These powerful mind-body techniques can support your emotional well-being to give you the best possible change of conceiving.
The Mind and Body Connection
Feel calm, less stressed, and in control of your fertility journey.
Your mind and body are one system. The role of the mind and negative emotions is a vital one often overlooked in traditional fertility treatments. The mind is capable of hindering us in our pursuits, but could also help you towards your goal. The body acts out and stores all the emotions and thoughts of the mind. Every memory, feeling and fear is stored in our body which can lead to increased anxiety perhaps getting in the way of your goal.
Together we will create a bespoke, individual therapy plan. This will use an extensive range of Cognitive Hypnotherapy cutting edge techniques, including hypnosis, nlp and positive psychology, so you start to notice a difference in the way you think and feel.
I will give you Fertility Hypnosis mp3s to listen to at home to support each stage of your fertility journey. These will help you to reach a relaxed and optimistic mind-set, out of our sessions, during what can be one of the most stressful periods of your life.
Fertility Hypnosis for IVF
Fertility Hypnosis combined with nlp techniques offer valuable tools for helping you to manage the stress of an IVF cycle.
When you go through an IVF cycle, it is important to keep a positive psychological and emotional state. Fertility Hypnosis will enable you to gain strategies to prepare you for the physical process of IVF. Should you have any medical phobias or issues such as needle phobias, these could also be addressed during our sessions.
"I have carried some personal beliefs and negative feelings with me which I felt might have a negative effect on my IVF treatment. Jo helped me to change my beliefs, and to feel more positive about my IVF journey and the future."
