Relaxing into fertility
Hypnotherapy is a deeply relaxing treatment. It calms the mind and profoundly relaxes the body. This, in itself, is very healing and restorative. Moreover, hypnotherapy for fertility give patients the opportunity to create a space to let go, relax and allow a fertile mindset to grow.
To reach a fertile mindset is to increase trust and belief in one’s own ability to reproduce. To do so, patients work with Fatima to release negative self-talk, shift limiting beliefs and visualise themselves in their most rewarding scenarios.
Tackling negative self-talk
Fertility can be difficult on the mental level. Some questions seem to always remain unanswered like:
Why am I not getting pregnant?
Will I ever get pregnant?
Will I ever have a baby?
Unfortunately, these questions often evolve into:
I don’t think I can have a baby.
Negative self-talk is common with everyone. However, struggling with fertility can – over time – cause great doubts. The longer it takes to have a baby, the more these doubts can settle into seeming certainties. For instance, a patient may have a history of multiple miscarriages. As a result, they might conclude that they can get pregnant but cannot hold the pregnancy. As another example, a patient may think that they are too old to have a baby, but they keep trying over many years. And, each year, they get older than when they first started, which feeds the doubt even further. That’s the trouble with lingering self-talk! It has the power to become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Luckily, this means that productive thinking also has the power to become self-fulfilling prophecies.
In hypnotherapy, we create a healing space allowing the patient to express both their fears and their hopes. Hypnosis is a very efficient therapeutic technique to transmute blockages on the mental level into a more fertile mindset, and a fertile mindset always leads the way to a fertile body.
Going deeper, shifting limiting beliefs
With hypnosis, we can get to the root of the issue by going deeper and communicating with the subconscious mind. While fertility patients may be aware of their self-talk, there might be deeply held beliefs silently resting in their subconscious. These beliefs may be preventing them from starting or growing their family.
Hypnosis is a great tool to discover individuals’ deeper beliefs. This is very healing because, once these beliefs travel from the subconscious to the conscious mind, they automatically lose their potency. With hypnotherapy, limiting beliefs may not only be discovered, they may also be successfully replaced with a more productive (and reproductive) set of thoughts.
With some patients, the limiting beliefs and blockages can be found through Past Life Regression Therapy, which is a specialism of hypnotherapy we offer in our clinic.
Another important aspect of hypnotherapy is to lead the patient into a possible future where their wish has come true. Once the patient can see and feel themselves holding their baby and being a parent, it starts to undo any limiting beliefs stopping them from reproducing. Most importantly, these visualisations are done in trance. When hypnotised, the rational and critical minds are resting. Consequently, the visualised images and feelings are truly assimilated at a very deep level.
The more a patient practises visualising and focusing on their wish, the less potent their limiting beliefs become. Through creative visualisation, they can move closer to their fertility dream coming true, so close that it may almost feel palpable. When this happens, the patient has reached a very fertile mindset, and a fertile mindset always leads to a fertile body.
Our answers to your most common questions
Can everyone be hypnotised?
Some people enter a state of trance very easily while others need to practise. It is easier for people who meditate regularly to reach a state of focused concentration (and that’s all hypnosis is: focused concentration). For those who don’t meditate, listening regularly to audio meditations would help them enter the hypnotic state with more ease. That said, up to 15% of the population cannot be hypnotised.
Does hypnotherapy for fertility guarantee a pregnancy?
No treatment and no practitioner can ever guarantee a successful pregnancy to anyone. With hypnotherapy for fertility, Fatima can only guarantee that her patients will feel more relaxed and hopefully better after the treatments.
Fatima views her fertility treatments – whether acupuncture or hypnotherapy – as a step forward in her patient’s healing journey. She believes that she is part of the process her patients choose to experience on their way to resolving their fertility issues.
She aims to offer treatments that are both supportive and healing on all levels – mental, emotional and physical. Fatima’s main focus with hypnotherapy is to help her patients acquire a more fertile mindset. Once they firmly believe in their ability to have a baby, they have made giant step forward!
Can both men and women benefit from hypnotherapy for fertility?
Yes, absolutely, both men and women can benefit from hypnotherapy for fertility. The only prerequisite is that they come of their own accord. This is very important for a session to be successful, as no therapist can hypnotise a patient without their consent. The patient’s desire to receive healing through hypnosis is the foundation of a positive and result-yielding treatment.
How does hypnotherapy for fertility help men?
Hypnotherapy for fertility can help men with:
- Anxiety about giving sperm samples
- Sexual performance anxieties
- Reduced libido
- Concerns about parenthood
- Relationship issues due to fertility problems
- Negative feelings resulting from a poor sperm diagnosis.
How many sessions will I need?
Two to three sessions of hypnotherapy for fertility may help patients become aware of their limiting beliefs and to work towards resolving them. During these sessions, there is also an emphasis on creative visualisation for manifestation, but also for physical well-being and spiritual connection.
Some patients may find that they need less sessions. For instance, they might have a cathartic experience. As a result, they might feel they have received the healing they needed. On the other hand, there are also patients who ask for more sessions to work through their fertility issues.
Fatima recommends patients to first book one session of hypnotherapy for fertility. They can then decide how many treatments they need as they go along.
What to expect during a session?
The first time patients attend a session of hypnotherapy for fertility, they have a thorough consultation with Fatima. They discuss their health, medical history, fertility history, etc… While Fatima gathers information that may help her with the treatments, this talk also gives patients an opportunity to relax and to get comfortable with their practitioner.
Following the consultation, Fatima guides her patients through a progressive relaxation. This brings them gradually to a state of trance, which is just focused concentration. During hypnosis, they go through healing scenarios where they work on their condition. Patients always remember everything that happens when they are in trance.
Before bringing her patients back to full awareness, Fatima performs a short energetic healing. This should leave them feeling revitalised and clear-headed.
Patients then talk about their experience. With Fatima’s help, they process the information that was revealed in hypnosis and discuss a way forward.
How can I prepare for a session of Hypnotherapy for Fertility?
It is helpful to listen to an audio of a meditation as regularly as possible before your session. These meditation practices may help you enter a state of trance more rapidly.
Hold the general intention to heal and to release anything blocking you from experiencing parenthood.
Release any expectations, so to open up to the healing that will present itself to you during your session.
