Find your inner strength
Unfortunately for some of us, getting pregnant is harder than imagined. This takes an emotional toll and in turn leads to significant stress and negative thoughts. As such, the time of the unfulfilled desire to have children is considered to be a very stressful and sometimes traumatic life event (1).
But there is no need to undertake the journey alone.
I would gladly assist you with my expertise, my high degree of sensitivity and my empathy. Providing a nurturing atmosphere, I lay the foundation for you to be yourself, let go of all the tension, and safely transition into your new fertile state of mind.
All coachings are tailored to you and your individual needs. You determine the pace. Where you are at decides the detail we will cover. Sometimes it only needs a little bit of an input, sometimes it needs a little more.

Holistic, Resource- and Solution-Oriented Coaching
I practice a resource- and solution-oriented coaching approach that relies on knowledge, heart and a clear and conscious mind.
Evidence-based tools, methods and techniques from stress research, positive psychology, neuroscience, mindfulness research and mind-body medicine naturally merge in a 3-step process to increase or regain inner strength which will result in increased life quality and enjoyment of life.
Get to the Here and Now
Learn to accept negative emotions regarding your subfertility, embrace your fears and (re)build basic trust in yourself.
Find your inner strength
Discover your own resources and learn new strategies to mindfully and resourcefully cope with the situation.
Integrate your mind, body and soul
Anchor your new mindset in daily life and apply your acquired mental and physical strategies.
The emotions that motivate your desire to have a child are a critical element for our starting point and what we’re working towards holistically. Below you will find a selection of methods and approaches that have proven themselves successful for clients. We usually touch on all these areas in order to develop truly sustainable and holistic solutions, ensuring that you can be truly well and happy once again.
Negative thought patterns shape us all of us, to a greater or lesser extent. During my coaching sessions, I hear many negative inner thoughts, such as: “I’m not a real woman” or “If only I had tried to get pregnant earlier”. Many of the sentences begin with ” I really should have…If only…”.
Negative thought patterns often originate in childhood and were taught to us by our parents or have been entrenched through negative experiences over the course of a lifetime. They are stored in our subconscious, and make us anxious and aggressive in the face of to stress and change. This causes us to make problems worse, rather than solve them.
If we change the thought patterns and beliefs within your mental framework, you will be able to deal with the challenging situation of trying to have a baby more mindfully, more freely, more clearly, and also in a more needs-oriented way.
Mindfulness and Stress Management
Practicing increased mindfulness in our daily lives, consciously experiencing existing and available resources, learning coping strategies for dealing with stress, as well as the stress reduction skills, will strengthen your self-efficacy and your ability to cope with this challenging phase of life. You will learn to better cope with triggering factors and reduce your feelings of pressure, anxiety, and stress.
This will allow you to find your way out of your feelings of helplessness from your attempts to become pregnant. You can find your way back to an enjoyable, self-determined life.
Hypnosis / Self-Hypnosis
Experience deep relaxation through hypnosis. Hypnosis not only helps to immediately and noticeably reduce tension, but you can also use it in the future. For example, your positive thoughts, you desired behavior, or your goals are firmly anchored in your subconscious.
The last part of a hypnosis session (the affirmation of new, positive thought patterns) is recorded via an audio file and can be repeated by playing it at home. I am also prepared to show you techniques for self-hypnosis so that you can use these positive effects in other situations at any time.
Hypnosis has been shown to improve both the fertilization rate and the implantation rate of IVF treatment. However, it is not a guarantee for a succesful pregnancy.
Certain health-damaging behaviors and lifestyle factors (such as smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of sleep, lack of exercise, an unhealthy diet) can increase the level of perceived stress and actually further impair an existing limitation of fertility (subfertility).
If needed, we can explore together which areas of your life could benefit from optimization. In this way, we can achieve great success on a physical level, with small, simple changes.
