When it comes to your fertility and your path to motherhood, I care as much about YOU and your journey to get there, as I do about the successful end result.
If you’ve been trying to conceive for some time you may feel you have tunnel vision towards achieving your dream. Perhaps you’ve been so laser focused that you, your life and your loves have been pushed to the side lines in the pursuit of motherhood.
Fertility issues and challenges of all kinds can bring out some of our most powerful emotions. You feel there MUST be another way as you know that not only is stress horrible to experience, but it also isn’t nurturing your health and your fertility.
And perhaps you’re wondering is it really time to become a mother? How will it impact on my life, my relationship, my career? Some of the change that children bring to our lives can feel scary or uncertain.
You want to ensure that you are truly ready for this new chapter in your life.
However you choose to travel the path to motherhood, good support which is nurturing, non-judgemental, gives you space to think and ponder, and kits you up with ways to transform emotions and connect to your inner strength and wisdom is ESSENTIAL. This is why Fertile Mindset exists.
It’s time to take stock of where you are, re-focus on where you want to be, and find the easiest and most enjoyable path to that point.
Women – and the occasional man – seek out my support for many and varied reasons. No two fertility journeys are the same, and the way I tailor and weave my support around and through your story will be totally unique to you.
The foundation of my approach to fertility support, and what makes it so effective, is the cutting edge technique called EFT.
EFT (or Emotional Freedom Techniques) is an approach to stress reduction and emotional healing that takes wisdom from the ancient Chinese meridian system alongside modern day psychology. This technique is used to effectively resolve emotional issues such as anxiety, worry, fear and anger to name just a few.
I find it’s the perfect partner to any fertility journey as it’s easy to learn and use, and it usually brings quick, long lasting and positive results to even the most deep seated and complex emotional issues.
Everyone I support is taught EFT from the basics right through to advanced approaches. Even if you have never used EFT (or even heard of it!) I will make learning this technique easy-peasy and then guide you through using it to help you reconnect with own inner strength, resilience and natural positivity. You have these qualities within you and are capable of resolving life’s toughest challenges. With my gentle support and guidance with this exceptional technique you will discover what is truly possible for you.
(a.k.a. Why I’m Offering You Fertility Support!)
My own journey to this point has been a long and interesting one, starting as a busy reflexologist who was inundated with clients who were trying to conceive. My interest in all things fertility was piqued and my work evolved to include emotional support when I was introduced to EFT in 2002 (I initially used EFT to deal with a life long phobia of public speaking. It was fully resolved, never to return in just 2 sessions which is when I realised how powerful EFT was!) The shifts and positive change I saw in my fertility clients was awe inspiring and EFT for fertility support soon became my main focus.
As I immersed myself in fertility support, I was personally finding myself shift towards motherhood. So my husband and I decided to try for our first baby.
It was soon apparent that we had multiple fertility challenges and it wouldn’t be an easy journey for us – just like so many of my clients.
Armed with the knowledge and resilience I’d learned from the experiences of the women and couples I’d supported, we navigated our own journey to parenthood with an awareness of how important information, support and strength is. I feel our experience with infertility, although at times emotional and challenging, was an empowering adventure into the unknown. Not only did I learn a huge amount about myself, my relationship and my body I also gained masses of empathy for the many women I was supporting then, and continue to do so now through their fertility journeys.
Our own journey to parenthood spanned 9 years and took many twisting and turning paths. We navigated through multiple fertility tests, several clinics, both natural and medical fertility advice and treatment, and finally created our family through both pregnancy and adoption. Our eldest is our son by birth (and looks just like his dad) and our littlest son is adopted (and I’m told looks just like me!).
When my husband and I made the decision to have children with a romantic notion of conceiving quickly, we thought we’d be more focused on baby names and decorating the nursery rather than ovulation tests and adoption assessments. In order for our journey to remain positive, uplifting and successful we needed a mindset shift – a way of looking at the gifts, focusing on our strengths and connecting with our belief that “some day, somehow we will be parents”.
