Specialist Support To Help You Cope When Trying to Conceive

I understand how painful & hard this path can be – I see your struggle & I want you to know that there are ways to make this journey gentler on you.

How can I be sure? Because I have supported hundreds of women, men & couples in this space.

Working together, I can help you to heal from the hurt & heartache of infertility, reclaim your life in the wait, and rebuild your resilience so you feel more able to move forward, and look to the future with renewed hope.

Whilst research in this area is limited, it is interesting and often encouraging.

Research has found that mind-body programs can have a significant positive effect on anxiety, depression, quality of life & pregnancy rates in women struggling with infertility. 1

I provide a rich blend of mind-body techniques including visualisation, emotions work and deep relaxation practices to support your mind and nurture your body at each stage.

I guide you in unlocking the power of your sub-conscious mind, so that it starts to work for you, rather than against you. Together we can uncover limiting beliefs, emotional blocks & unhelpful barriers to progress, and work through these, so you are in the best headspace possible to make progress.

Specialist emotional support to help you cope when trying to conceive and going through IVF treatment

Fertility Mindset Coaching

The sessions are a space for healing, safe sharing & taking time to breathe. I bring transformational, evidence-based tools & techniques to reduce the stress, anxiety & overwhelm of infertility.

So right from the beginning, you’ll be able to feel calmer & more emotionally in control – a powerful shift to support your mind, your body & your fertility.

These sessions are a place where you’ll be able to let go of the pain of your struggles so far, take back control of the emotional rollercoaster, break out of the negative thought spirals & begin to look forward feeling empowered & emotionally equipped for the journey ahead.

As your mindset shifts, you’ll also find yourself more able to live life more fully “in the wait” as your sense of hope about the future, begins to grow.

Interestingly, there is also a growing body of research to indicate that support for the mind may be beneficial for fertility outcomes too. One small pilot study in 2020 for example, found that women who took part in a 10-week Mind-Body program to mitigate the distress of infertility, were over 4 times more likely to become pregnant than the waiting list control group.2

IVF & IUI Mindset Coaching

Are you going into fertility treatment feeling anxious? Or perhaps you have experienced failure before & feel stuck in a negative mindset, trying to balance feelings of hope & despair.

If it’s a yes to any of these, you’re definitely not alone & you’re in the right place. Together we can work through the emotional challenges, so instead of spiralling into negative thinking, you will feel less stressed, more resilient & in a good headspace for your fertility treatment.

Why is this so important? – Research shows that people going through fertility treatment report higher levels of anxiety & depression than the population at large, and many feel a real lack of emotional support. Unsurprisingly, psychological distress is one of the most common reasons why people discontinue fertility treatment.

But research has also indicated that women who take part in a Mind/Body program for stress reduction before & during IVF treatment, not only gain life skills to be able to handle stress better, they may also be more likely to conceive.3

So whether you’re planning treatment in the future or are already part way through, the Mind-Body support I provide has the potential to bring benefits for both your mind & your fertility.
