Would you like to teach effective, easy to use techniques which will help women and men increase their chances of fertility and dealing with the psychological and emotional challenges of difficulties in conceiving?
The benefits of using hypnosis for fertility are renowned. There is an increasing demand for women and men wishing to use hypnosis to assist in conception, worldwide. The easibirthing® model had been specifically designed in conjunction with our work in Childbirth & Post Natal Mental Health.
The mind has enormous power over the body, which is constantly influenced by our emotions, thoughts and beliefs. There are many factors responsible for infertility, and our emotions can affect the delicately balanced hormonal system, which in turn controls ovulation, sperm production and pregnancy.
•Sharon Mustard has been training hypnotherapists in this highly profitable area of hypnosis for over 27 years
•easibirthing® is a UK registered trademark, giving reassurance to you and your clients
•This course holds double independent accreditation with:
a)the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (established 1977)
b)the CPD standards office
•As well as founding easibirthing® fertility to parenthood, Sharon is a fully qualified Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Life Coach with a full-time general practice in Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK which she runs alongside her husband. Waiting times for new clients is consistently between 4-6 months.
•“Sharon Mustard is quite simply the leading authority on the use of hypnosis for birthing and fertility in the UK, BAR NONE! Her innovative programme is being used in both the NHS and private practice throughout the UK. She has developed a UK Centric Model for Hypnotic Birthing, Easibirthing® which in our opinion is simply the best method to be used for clients who want to add hypnosis to their birthing or conception experience.”
Shaun Brookhouse, Former Principal, National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy
There is a wealth of research showing that hormone levels, ovulation and other reproductive factors may well be affected by what is going on in the individual's mind. By consulting a specialist therapist the client can increase/maximise the chances of conception and maintaining a healthy pregnancy.
As that clock is ticking, a client may be consulting you as an alternative to medical fertility interventions-to increase their chances of conceiving naturally or using hypnosis alongside medical treatments such as drug therapy or IVF.
As these treatments are not contraindicated with hypnosis and psychotherapy, maximum chance in conceiving is in taking advantage of all. One (body) without the other (mind) can be ineffective.
To aid natural conception, hypnotherapy is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress and increase feelings of calmness and relaxation. Hypnosis can also help to restore confidence in yourself and your body. Being in a state of hypnosis can be useful as a means to resolve any issues around managing stress or unconscious blocks that may be affecting their ability to conceive and become a parent.

Poorly understood for far too long, the menopause disrupts hormone balance sending things out of sync. Working tirelessly in the background Hormones are misunderstood and underestimated. Hormones playing a key in how we look, feel, think and behave and when out of balance life can feel overwhelming.
Shrouded in mystery and sometimes shame peri-menopausal and menopausal women often carry on regardless, frequently suffering in silence until they run out of resilience often leaving work, not meeting friends feeling alone lost and exhausted.
The menopause transition can be a challenging experience, many women simply do not understand what is happening to them thinking they are going mad. This is where well-being professionals can play a key supporting role.
This one day workshop has been developed to provide well-being professionals with an overview of the physical and psychological issues of the menopause. We will explore various ways in which you can support your clients.
Subjects covered on the workshop include:
•What is menopause?
•When does menopause happen?
•What are the symptoms of menopause?
•What are the choices?
•How can menopause affect women?
•How can menopause affect work?

•How can well-being professionals help?
•Menopause and beyond
•Menopause and self-care
Research has shown that therapy combined with visualizations stress reduction and confidence building significantly improve a woman’s experience of her menopause.
The Workshop will guide you systematically through a unique ‘Embrace Programme’ and you will be able to equip your clients to let go of fear and anxiety.
The day includes information to support clients with diet, nutrition, well-being and lifestyle information. Scripts and intake forms to download and ways to encourage women to adapt to the changes naturally, efficiently and to comfortably say “Yes, I am going to embrace my amazing life.”
The fact is menopause does happen to every woman and the aim of this workshop is to share how to focus energy on how to feel good again. To think of the menopause as a halfway point and all of the changes, not just the physical ones, will help shape the next 50 years of your clients life.
