More About the Techniques Used in the Programme:

NLP Mindset Coaching

NLP Mindset Coaching helps clients process and release whatever traumas or beliefs they are holding onto, which are having a negative effect on their mind and body well-being. The coaching will help clients to explore their mindset and limiting beliefs around fertility difficulties or having treatment. It will help clients work though the emotional challenges they are facing and will help them to rewire their thought process to enable positive, healthy shifts to occur. By being more connected with their intuition and bodies, clients will be able to have more power and control on their fertility journey.

Mindset Matters

Your mindset is a key jigsaw piece of the fertility journey, as it has an impact on our bodies and physical health. Studies have shown that a more positive outlook improves physical health and boosts your immune system. It can lower stress, which impacts hormone balance. A positive mindset plays a key role in conceiving. If you are feeling more positive, you are more likely to take positive action to help you. Trusting your body and believing in your ability to conceive is a big part of the conception journey.

As a Fertility Freedom Formula™ Specialist...

I am your support guide by your side. I help clients to reclaim emotional control of their fertility journey whilst supporting their chances of falling pregnant.
I help clients to examine what is going on in their lives and what has changed since experiencing fertility issues. Clients will be empowered to resolve the obstacles and challenges in their way and recognise what they need on their fertility journey. Clients will reclaim the joy in life again and learn to manage the emotional overwhelm that infertility brings, in a way which feels right for them.

EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique

Emotional Freedom Technique – Energy Tapping (EFT) is used in the ‘Fertility Avenue Transformation Programme’.

EFT is a simple, effective, evidence-based technique. It works by stimulating pressure points with your own fingers, and is compared to acupuncture, but without needles. 

Research at Harvard Medical School has shown that by stimulating certain meridian points in the body, EFT calms down the amygdala, the stress centre of the brain, and lowers the stress hormones.

EFT will help bring your body into a relaxed response and leave you feeling calm, focussed and positive. Clients can also use it on themselves when they are undergoing fertility treatments and procedures.

STRESS can affect your fertility. Recent research has found that when a person is stressed, the stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol, inhibit the release of the body’s main hormone, GnRH (Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone), which is responsible for the release of sex hormones. These hormones send signals to our body that the environment is not favourable for conception. Adrenaline also inhibits us from utilizing the hormone progesterone, which is essential for fertility. It also causes the pituitary gland to release higher levels of prolactin, which can also cause infertility.

Hypnotherapy / HypnoFertility

Hypnotherapy/HypnoFertility is also offered as part of the programme. HypnoFertility supports the mind-body connection and helps release subconscious blocks which may be impeding fertility.  It will also help release the stress your body is under, and it will help you to relax and change lifestyle habits. Research has shown the impact that stress can have on the brain and how it can significantly lower the chances of becoming pregnant. HypnoFertility will help you become more optimistic and positive within your everyday life, which will enable you to look forward with hope rather than fear. It will help you enter a more positive place with visualizations, affirmations, and strategies to overcome the anxiety and worry about your fertility struggles.

Understand Yourself! Help Yourself! Be Yourself!

 Research Studies

There have been many studies that show the benefits of these approaches and techniques to help women conceive.

“In a study by Harvard University, women accessing a mind-body program were over twice as likely to conceive within 12 months as those who didn’t. Of those women that got pregnant, 76% did so naturally (without medical intervention despite their age, number of years trying and diagnoses.)”

“In a recent study of a digital version of the Boston Mind-Body program, women experienced significant decreases in anxiety and depression and a 4.47 times higher pregnancy rate.”

A study found that 52 percent of the women participating in the Mind-Body Program for Infertility became pregnant compared with 20 percent of the control group participants, a statistically significant difference.

A significant study, conducted by Dr. Dawson Church, was set out to determine how an hour-long tapping session would impact the cortisol levels. For the sake of comparison, he also measured the cortisol levels of people who just received traditional talk therapy, as well as the cortisol levels of those who received no treatment at all. The average cortisol reduction of those who experienced an EFT Tapping session was 24%, and even hit as high as 50% in some subjects. On the other hand, people who experienced traditional talk therapy or no treatment at all, didn’t experience any significant cortisol reduction.

Researchers in Soroka University, in Israel, found that hypnosis can double the success of IVF treatment. In a study, they found that 28% of women in a group who were hypnotised became pregnant, compared with 14% of those who were not hypnotised.

In one study, Peter Quinn, a pioneer in the field, used hypnotherapy with a group of women between the ages of 26 and 42 who had durations of infertility lasting from 2-12 years. 65% of the women went on to have a successful pregnancy after hypnotherapy.
