Trying for a baby is usually a happy experience, however, sometimes, as the months pass by it can become all encompassing, all consuming, often obsessive and far reaching. Often, it can be difficult to focus on other aspects of your life. As time goes on, you can feel more and more disappointed and frustrated, often experiencing a sense of detachment and isolation from the world, a profound sense of sadness, scared of ‘what this might mean’. It is all about time and perhaps time seems to be running out.
Negative thoughts, emotions and behaviours can lead to increased anxiety and depression, getting in the way of your goal of conceiving. The hardest thing to hear when you are trying to address fertility issues is, ‘you must remain positive, try not to think about it too much.’ As true as this advice may be, many people need support in reaching this relaxed and optimistic mindset during what can be one of the most important and stressful times of your life.
A combination of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy has been proven to effectively assist the conception process in many cases. The mind has enormous power over the body, which is constantly influenced by our emotions, thoughts and beliefs. There are many factors responsible for infertility, and our emotions can affect the delicately balanced hormonal system, which in turn controls ovulation, sperm production and pregnancy.
There is a wealth of research showing that hormone levels, ovulation and other reproductive factors may well be affected by what is going on in your mind and a combination of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy can maximize the chances of conception and maintaining a healthy pregnancy.
Treating the body without treating the mind, therefore, can be ineffective. Hypno-psychotherapy can help in increasing your chances of conceiving naturally, you may wish to use it as an alternative to medical fertility interventions, or you may choose to use it in conjunction with medical treatments such as drug therapy or IVF.
To aid natural conception, hypnotherapy is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress and increase feelings of calmness and relaxation. Hypnosis can also help to restore confidence in yourself and your body. Being in a state of hypnosis can be useful as a means to resolving any issues around managing stress or subconscious blocks that may be affecting your ability to conceive and become a parent.
Therefore, the aim of this therapy is to:
- Reduce stress and help you to remain calm, patient and in control so enhancing your chance of conceiving either naturally or with the help of medical fertility intervention.
- Identifying and removing conscious and subconscious blocks which may be preventing conception.
- Preparing your body physically, mentally and emotionally to conceive.
- Gaining a positive and optimistic outlook, and renewing trust in your body’s ability to conceive.
- Developing communication channels with your partner so that you focus on making decisions that are best for both of you.
- If appropriate, it can help you to deal with the emotional toll of the experience of infertility.
Whatever the outcome you will feel stronger, calmer and more in control of your life.
