Neuroscience research shows connectivity of mind and body, thoughts and emotions underpinning biology, behaviours, choices and decisions ~ Psychoneuroimmunology.

How Fertility Mindfulness Works
This is a series of individual sessions tailored for you to kick-start your fertility and get back in the driving seat.
We’ll cover everything from getting you ready to get pregnant – (lifestyle changes, fears, mental blocks, weight, exercise, smoking, sex) to IVF preparation, if you need it. You learn what to expect at visits, how to manage clinic visits around work schedules and the best way to give injections. Get coached through IVF; egg collection, transfer, 2 week wait and follow-up.
We deal with miscarriage, termination of pregnancy, ectopic, and IVF failure.
Fertility mindfulness involves psychotherapy, CBT, hypnotherapy, mindfulness, visualisation, coaching and counseling, for best results. There’s plenty of discussion, common sense and a bit of humor. This is your own Fertility Bootcamp!
I am passionate about helping you get pregnant.
