About this course
This professional-level course on Holistic Fertility Counselling is ideal for those who wish to extend their counselling qualifications and to include a new and important niche area. It is also for those who are studying counselling currently and who wish to specialise on fertility issues in a professional capacity. This course provides a great deal of information on fertility problems but does not include specific counselling techniques as we assume you have these skills. The course is a combination of videos and an in depth training manual to cover all learning styles.
Please understand that this role requires a great deal of sensitivity, knowledge, and understanding.
Within this course, we cover many aspects of fertility issues, and you will see that each couple/person you speak to will have a different set of problems to overcome that may be causing a delay in their being able to conceive.
We look at the implications of stress on fertility, psychological problems as well as how to improve health and well-being generally.
As a counsellor, you will need to understand the health issues surrounding infertility, and your aim is to always connect with and to understand those who are desperately trying to conceive. Your role includes supporting emotional and mental health as well as to help with lifestyle changes that could make a big difference in respect of conception.
