Although fertility is usually perceived as a purely medical issue, the mind and body are intrinsically linked and enough anecdotal material exists to suggest that psychological issues are a contributing factors to fertility issues in some women.
If you have been diagnosed as being medically infertile then it’s vital that you continue to follow the advice of, and treatment recommended by, your medical practitioner. However, if no medical reason has been diagnosed for your fertility issue then the obstacles may be psychological rather than physical.
The subconscious mind can play a vital role in either assisting or resisting conception and because the subconscious mind doesn’t understand or work to linear time, it can take a while for it to synchronise with your psychological or emotional state.
For example, many women spend much of their younger lives actively trying not to get pregnant. When that changes, and pregnancy becomes a goal, the subconscious mind, for so long conditioned to avoidance, can need time to play catch-up.
But there are often also additional subconscious conflicts that need to be resolved before conceiving, which is why our hypnotherapy for fertility sessions are extremely beneficial – especially as it’s estimated that up to 17% of couples will suffer from psychogenic infertility.
HOW WE CAN HELP
In our hypnotherapy sessions we explore a number of things.
Many women have negative beliefs regarding pregnancy and birth, in many cases carried from childhood and where this is the case we work to replace those beliefs with a more positive view of conception and birth.
We can clear teenage fears about pregnancy and where appropriate resolve emotional issues and events from the past, such as terminations or miscarriages.
Our treatments also use hypnotic suggestion to ready and optimise the body for pregnancy and we teach relaxation techniques to aid conception. Finally, to maintain positivity and a ‘receptive’ state for conception, we work on self-esteem and confidence.
Hypnosis is a powerful tool in aiding fertility and the overall purpose of the hypnotherapy for fertility treatment we offer if to align the conscious and subconscious, ready for conception.
