When struggling with fertility it can seem like it is taking over your whole life! Life becomes about timing, apps, diets, complimentary therapies all in the hope that something will ‘work’. Avoiding situations where you may be asked that dreaded question ‘so when are you going to start a family?’ or ‘when are you going to have another one?’ Avoiding pregnant friends or friends with babies that you used to feel close to.
The Freedom Fertility Formula is a unique blend of counselling, coaching and mind/body techniques all used to support you to take back emotional control. The aim of the sessions is to give you the tools to feel confident to live life to the full again, while also focusing on your desire to have a baby.
The Freedom Fertility Formula is right for you if:
Fertility coaching works fantastically well alongside IVF. In fact, the coaching could be crucial for helping to handle the challenges of the process as well as increasing the chances of a successful outcome!
The aim of fertility coaching is for you to regain emotional control of your fertility journey and start living life to the full once more. By using the tools and strategies this will happen. The aim of the sessions is not for you to get pregnant (although of course we both want that to happen), because that risks putting the coaching into the same category as all the other things you’ve ‘tried’.
But in saying all that, by following the programme, and as a result taking back emotional control and giving the right messages to your subconscious about your desire to have a baby, your chances of conceiving, naturally or via IVF will increase.
Fertility coaching is a great compliment to medical fertility treatment, however is not a substitute.
Although I am from a medical background, I am not qualified to advise you on medical fertility treatments. I am here to support and guide you to making the right decisions for you from an emotional wellbeing perspective.
The programme usually consists of between 4 and 7 sessions and is usually spread over 3 months. It’s difficult to say exactly how many are needed as everyone is different and will be in need of different levels of support.
I’m sure it feels like you have already spent a lot on treatments, tests and investigations during your fertility journey. If you have found yourself here it is most likely because what you feel you have done already hasn’t been working. The positive impact the programme will bring is huge in terms of your relationships, finding joy in life and feeling emotionally strong.
Sessions are between an hour and 90 minutes. I suggest accounting for the full 90 minutes, as this means timing is more relaxed and we don’t have to stop if we are in the middle of talking about something important.
Included in the cost is access to online content, information on what we covered in the session and MP3s for you to listen to whenever you want to. I also offer ongoing support via text/email/phone as needed either between sessions or after your course has finished.
The investment for each session is £97.
Sessions are run at the Unity Clinic 113 Lower Church Road, Burgess Hill, West Sussex, RH15 9AA
If you are further away and unable to make it to my clinic, sessions are also available over Zoom video call.
Please be advised that once an appointment has been made, I require 48 hours advance notice for any cancellations. If the appointment is missed or cancelled within 48 hours the full price of the appointment will be charged. This is due to the costs I incur for the appointment such as room hire, however if the appointment can be filled a full refund will be given minus admin costs.
Meet Sarah. Sarah is in fertility fog. Sarah dreams of being a mum again. She has a 4-year-old son and she has been trying for another baby for 3 years.
Sarah feels so lost, like there is something missing from her life and family. She has overwhelming feelings of guilt. Guilt that her son desperately wants a brother or sister, guilt that she should be grateful for the child she has, guilt that her partner wants another baby.
All of Sarah’s mum friends have either had their second baby or they’re pregnant again. She hoped they would be going through this stage together again, but it hasn’t turned out that way. Sarah has distanced herself from these friends. It’s hard to hear them talk about how much harder it is to have 2 children compared to 1. They talk a about how tired they are and that they never have a minute to themselves. Sarah would give anything to be where they are.
Then that guilt kicks in again and Sarah feels like she’s not being a supportive friend. Distancing herself from these friends has caused Sarah to feel incredibly lonely and isolated. Like they are carrying on without her while she is stuck waiting.
Sarah is constantly thinking and worrying about age gaps, she calculates it every month and feels a mix of sadness and pressure that they won’t be as close in age as she wanted.
Sarah feels like a failure. She loves her family so much, but this isn’t how she imagined it.
Sarah knows it is affecting her emotional well-being, she isn’t as confident or happy as she used to be. She wants to feel differently but she doesn’t know how.
What if there was another way to cope with these difficult feelings? Something that would relieve the stress and anxiety that’s increasing, rebuild confidence that it is possible to deal with difficult situations without falling apart, and knowing life doesn’t have to be on hold.
If you’re thinking, yes, that’s me, that’s exactly what I need, then I want you to know the way you are feeling is not your fault, it can get better and improve your chances of fertility success. Send me a message if you’re ready for change.
