What is the Freedom Fertility Formula?
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.
Is the Freedom Fertility Formula right for me?
The Freedom Fertility Formula is right for you if:
- You have been trying for a baby for a while unsuccessfully
- You feel that getting pregnant is taking over your whole life
- You are considering fertility treatment and need some emotional support
- You have experienced miscarriage or loss at any stage and you are unsure if you want to risk experiencing this pain again
- You feel that your fertility journey is having a negative impact on your life and relationships with those around you
- You feel like your life is on hold, and that you’re going around in circles getting nowhere
- You feel you have ‘tried’ so many things to physically prepare your body for pregnancy, and you are beginning to lose hope
What if we’re having IVF?
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!
Does it actually work?
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.
Can coaching be used instead of medical treatments?
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.
What is the investment and how long are sessions?
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.
Where do the sessions take place?
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.
What is the cancellation policy?
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.
Nicola is kind, caring & knowledgeable. Doing the fertility coaching with her helped me to think about how to enjoy my life (rather than just waiting to fall pregnant), she also helped me to think about how my ‘protective responses’ to a difficult fertility journey may be contributing to my body seeing pregnancy as somehow dangerous. We then worked through these defences together using hypnosis and by building coping strategies. Following the course, I quickly fell pregnant and all is well in this pregnancy to date. I can’t thank Nicola enough and highly recommend her.KD, Sussex
