Hypnotherapy for Fertility
Using Hypnosis to Improve Fertility
The use of Hypnotherapy for Fertility is a relatively new area of hypnosis. It is often used holistically in conjunction with conventional medical treatments including IVF as well as alternative treatments such as acupuncture and reflexology. It is such a suitable treatment for Fertility because Hypnosis is a deep and concentrated form of relaxation. Many people when faced with fertility problems find that they begin to suffer from extreme stress and pressure so Hypnotherapy for Fertility at a most basic level can begin to alleviate some of those feelings.
A Hypnotherapist who is helping with Fertility generally will begin by teaching their clients self hypnosis techniques. This will enable their clients to practice deep relaxation at home so that they can start to reduce their stress on a daily basis. Then the hypnotherapist will start using some basic visualisation techniques with their client. Perhaps getting them to imagine that their body is in a perfect state for conception. Once this has been achieved the process will move forward so that the client imagines that now they are pregnant and to feel how the body has started to change to enable that to happen. Future orientation can also be used to allow them to imagine what they will be doing once that baby is born.
This form of gentle relaxation and visualisation has been shown to increase your chances of conception whilst using IVF by at least 50%. This is a significant figure because just by learning to relax and using visualisation techniques you are more likely to become pregnant. Hypnotherapy for Fertility has other advantages as it can also discover what is going on deep down in your subconscious mind. In particular this deeper hypnotic work can determine whether you have placed any subconscious blocks on becoming pregnant.
Our subconscious is very often trying to protect us and deep down in our minds will try and prevent things from happening which are not beneficial for us. So if deep down you have worries or concerns about becoming pregnant then these could potentially stop a conception from happening. Just some of the unconscious issues that may be found include:
1) Worries about Work and promotion if you become pregnant
2) Money worries and how you situation will be impacted.
3) Concerns about the suitability of your partner as a father.
4) Fears and Phobias concerning pregnancy including worries about medical procedures or morning sickness.
A skilled hypnotherapist will work with you over a number of sessions to check whether you have placed any subconscious blocks in your mind to prevent pregnancy and work with you to remove them.
