Fertility Training for Professionals

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 wishing to use hypnosis to assist in conception, worldwide. The easibirthing® model had been specifically designed in conjunction with our work in childbirth.

  • easibirthing® is a registered trademark (the only one in the UK hypnosis for fertility & birthing world!) and therefore any practitioner using this trademark has been fully trained and qualified-a reassurance for the general public.
  • The Certified Hypnotic Fertility Practitioner (CHFP) qualification is the only hypnosis for fertility qualification in the UK which is independently accredited (ie. by the nchp).               The National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (nchp) has been offering respected, evidenced based and independently accredited Hypnotherapy Training, Hypnosis Training and Psychotherapy Training since 1977. This makes the National College one of the longest established and most respected hypnotherapy/hypno-psychotherapy training institutes in the world. Their Hypnotherapy/Hypno-psychotherapy training is UKCP and European-accredited. Visit them at www.hypnotherapyuk.net
