Addressing Fertility Issues with EFT
Many therapists are drawn to working with pregnancy and childbirth, but what about the less appealing area of infertility?
Infertility rates are rising in the west, for a number of reasons, one of which is women putting conception on hold until later in life. Did you know that research shows infertility issues to be 40% female, 40% male generated, and 20% both parties?
Stress is known to have an effect on fertility, whether through ongoing stress release behaviours such as alcohol, or more subtly through a ongoing raised level of anxiety which becomes so normal that it is no longer even acknowledged. This is very often the case with women who come to plan pregnancy late in life having put it on hold to pursue their careers.
Psychological trauma may also have an impact on a person's inability to conceive, including issues such as previous terminations, relationship problems and limiting beliefs. All of these can be gently resolved using EFT and, whilst there is currently only anecdotal evidence to support this, after working through the emotional aspects of fertility many women do go on to enjoy successful and healthy pregnancies. EFT can also be a powerful tool for supporting women going through IVF and IUI medical interventions.
Emma Roberts and Sue Beer offer one day workshops on Addressing Fertility Issues with EFT. These workshops are suitable for doctors, nurses, counsellors and therapists working in fertility clinics or other practices, and can be tailored to suit your particular needs.

The Baby Making Bible
Emma and Sue are thrilled to have contribued to Emma Cannon's best-selling book, The Baby-Making Bible. They have been working alongside Emma in her fertility work for some years now and this book is a synopsis of all that the practice offers its clients.
"I find that many people come to me for acupuncture before they have visited an orthodox practitioner. It makes sense to me to work in tandem with orthodox medicine and other practitioners in order to offer these couples a comprehensive approach to their fertility. Fertility is often multi-factorial so I believe it works well with a multi-disciplined approach." Emma Cannon, BSc Hons Ac, MbBAcC
The integration of Western medicine and Eastern approaches really comes together in this very readable and practical book which is an important read whether you are a practitioner or trying to conceive.
Note: While EFT seems to have supported remarkable changes in many emotional and physical issues to date, it should not be used instead of appropriate medical care. You should always consult your doctor before using any form of self-treatment.
