"I felt a bit lost and like my life was stuck, I found it really hard to enjoy the day to day. I was quite frustrated too.I really needed some help to talk through all of the emotions I was feeling and felt that you gave me the space to talk through all of the things without judgement and what was better, gave me tools to handle those emotions.
I felt I was taking action to try to help myself. With infertility, I felt there were so many physical things I needed to consider, nutrition, lifestyle etc, and I really didn’t know how to tackle the mental side of things. The sessions absolutely did that for me and more".
"I was stressed and anxious about our fertility journey as we were heading toward what will be our final treatment. My emotions were all over the place, I felt trapped and like I was on a merry go round. I was fed feeling “oh, here we go again”.
It changed my mindset from “if I have a baby” to “when I have my baby”.
I’m far more positive about it and I’m feeling excited about the next treatment.
At the start of the journey, I never thought I would be where I am now.
Nicola is a great coach. She has such a calming personality and made me feel at ease from the first conversation we had."
"I had lost hope and trust in my body and struggled in my social situations. Every month was getting harder and harder and I wanted to change.
My relationship with my husband is better than ever. We talk far more about it. He’s also opening up to me, which makes me feel supported as I know he’s in this with me.
I wish everyone would have this opportunity, even just for life! Anyone going through fertility pain, needs to do this!
I had no idea what I was bottling up until I started with you. I don’t even want to think about where I’d be now if I hadn’t have done this".
"I was caught up in the torturous cycle of despair, hope, worry. Wondering all the time if something was wrong with me. Finding myself googling at work. I felt like enough was enough.
Since that session I’ve been able to think about my miscarriage without the strong emotional upset that previously was attached to it.
I’m able to talk about it without crying and feeling that strong sadness and overwhelm. I think I also found this session particularly powerful as I really wasn’t expecting it to work.
I feel a lot calmer, and definitely excited for a future pregnancy. I have also learnt to let go of the panic over time. My relationships with my family and friends are stronger.
I feel more resilient and better equipped to be able to deal with whatever potential hurdles my fertility journey has in store for me in the future".
"Before we began I was feeling hopeless.
I wouldn’t let myself feel hope because I felt like it would be too painful when things didn’t work out.
I was distancing myself from friends and family because I felt like that protected me. But actually it meant that my support system was really reduced.
I honestly feel like all areas of my life have improved. My relationships with my husband, friends and family and my mental health especially.
I feel hopeful for the future for the first time in years. I feel strong and ready for whatever comes my way".
