Last year 30,000 couples in the UK sought help from the medical profession regarding infertility issues, for some women the cause is biological/medical, requiring professional medical treatment, for the remainder the problem is often psychological, with the barrier to conception being found to be primarily stress-related, psychological infertility.
Stress and the role it plays in conception, is the subject of considerable ongoing medical research; existing data shows that the body responds to stress by triggering the hypothalamic-
The use of CBT to overcome various stress related disorders is widely accepted and for the majority it has become the treatment of choice. Whilst waiting times for CBT treatment on the NHS are still prohibitive in many regions, they are slowly improving as more and more therapists are being trained. Private treatment is often available and offered by organisations such as the Priory Clinics and BUPA.
Now medical research has confirmed the expected positive results achieved when CBT is incorporated in the treatment of infertility. At a small British complimentary health clinic in Southern Spain they have taken the treatment a step further by the careful combining of CBT with Hypnotherapy, which is of course a highly effective mind-body technique, increasingly being accepted by the medical profession.
They initially use a very detailed set of diagnostic questionnaires, cleverly constructed to quickly direct the therapist towards any areas of stress, whether conscious or sub-conscious or unresolved life issues that may exist, this information is incorporated into the CBT. Later they incorporate a form of Hypnosis that promotes very deep and natural levels of relaxation, and very focused visualisation techniques are introduced that completely eliminate any remaining stress or anxiety.
Often women who have been trying unsuccessfully to conceive will be adamant when interviewed that they are not aware of any stress in their lives, which is often the case on a conscious level, but the treatment identifies the many subconscious blocks that can often interfere with conception. In a relaxed, therapeutic environment, the therapist and the individual work together to introduce permanent long-term levels of positive attitudes and feelings.
At the clinic they have spent three years perfecting their methodology;
The therapy method used at the clinic is, in comparison to alternatives, inexpensive, non-invasive and, many confirm, a surprisingly pleasant experience, clients are predominately British couples who fly over for a few days specifically for treatment. Additionally of course they have the chance to spend a few quality days together on the Mediterranean coast, enjoying the sunshine, in a relaxed environment, which can only compliment the therapy and help achieve the perfect recipe for success.
