The HypnoFertility programme teaches you how to find that relaxed state which opens the door to conception, whether natural or medically-assisted. Hypnotherapy transforms fear and frustration and can be combined with any medical procedure with impressive results.


Unexplained infertility actually means that there is no physiological reason for a woman not to become pregnant. Although women often feel helpless upon learning this condition, it is actually great news. In the absence of a pathological impediment, most women can be helped to achieve fertility by exploring prior programming or emotional blocks.


Negative feelings, left unexpressed or unresolved, hold considerable energy which can block conception. Unexpressed emotions, such as anguish, guilt or shame often felt after an abortion, can create extreme emotional conflict which affects every cell of the body and can cause or compound reproductive problems.


Once a chronic imbalance of the autonomic nervous system is created, only the regular and consistent practice of relaxation will facilitate the restoration of the parasympathetic nervous system. Hypnotherapy provides an effective means of establishing that restoration and enables women to establish the level of safety essential for reproduction to occur.


Stress and lack of confidence tend to be the top culprits that must be addressed with hypnosis for unexplained infertility. Hormonal problems can also contribute to conception issues. Restoration of hormonal balance and eventual pregnancy may occur through the utilisation of hypnosis techniques and implementation of positive lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise.


Hypnotherapy reduces stress and increases confidence, instilling a sense of control which maximises chances of conceiving naturally or increases the success of medical assistance such as IVF.
