Solution-oriented support
before, during and after pregnancy

Pregnancy-related symtoms? Stressed out? Fears & panic attacks? Migraine? Smoking cessation? Itchiness? Menopausal symptoms

These topics and many more can be tackled very well in hypnotherapy with excellent results. Hypnosis is also a treatment of choice in pregnancy, since problems can be solved gently, efficiently and sustainably.

What is hypnosis? Is hypnosis challenging?

In hypnosis you are in a relaxed state of intense concentration. We experience it every day in our lives: when we read an interesting book (and forget about time), when we sit in the cinema (and cry because we sympathize with the heroine) ) when we are in love (and have our pink glasses on), shortly before falling asleep (when we are approached but do not answer because we are too tired to do so), during daydreaming (and we do not respond to our name), when driving (and we miss the highway exit or if we arrive at home but can't remember how we got there).

It is easy to go into hypnosis, especially if existing misunderstandings and / or fears regarding the use of hypnosis could be clarified in the preliminary discussion. The appropriate comparison to cycling is often made: some sit up and drive off, while others need a little practice until they can move unerringly. This applies to both guided hypnosis and self-hypnosis. The more often (self) hypnosis is used, the easier and faster the moment is reached when one can work with increased suggestibility.

You can hear and feel everything during hypnosis. All senses are highly sensitive. You are not sleeping! Hypnosis only works if you really allow yourself hypnosis to work. At no time you are without willpower. You always come out of hypnosis, even without the help of the therapist.

Medicine recognizes more and more the connection between mind and body and what influence our state of mind has on the development of diseases. By releasing stressful traumas the mind can be brought into balance and the body has the opportunity to recover. Often unprocessed childhood experiences, which from an adult perspective are not necessarily classified as dramatic or traumatic, but have been saved as such in the subconscious according to the child's level of development, are the cause of current, physical and / or psychological challenges. Example: Anxiety about childbirth can have its origin in a traumatizing, previous birth, but can also arise from a remark heard as a child and not rationally understood, or based on beliefs such as "In our family, all women have had difficult births."

My task is it to find out together with you where this fear has its origin and where it has been intensified. If these experiences and beliefs are uncovered in the subconscious, they than can be neutralized. Positive impulses are given through affirmations and suggestions. The fear is replaced by a relaxed, calm anticipation.

Whoever gives hypnosis therapy a chance, gives himself the chance to bring mind and body into balance. And medical treatments are actively and positively supported.

Hypnosis may help with the following topics::

  • Preparation before pregnancy, also with fertility and infertility issues
  • Pregnancy symptoms such as nausea & vomiting
  • Bonding with the growing baby in the womb
  • Challenges in pregnancy as early contractions, itchiness, prolonged pregnancy
  • Ante-natal preparation for all births, also with a planned c-section
  • Stress management , fears & panic attacks, migraines
  • Smoking cessation or reduction of cigarette consumption, also suitable during pregnancy
  • Small and bigger challenges whilest breastfeeding and during times of baby's adjustment difficulties
  • Provides a saving island in the stormy sea in case of fatigue, overwork and stress in the postpartum
  • Menopausal symptoms

Hypno-Parenting is a workshop in four sequences for couples or single parents, in which topics related to emotional intelligence, communication, but also different parenting styles and children's styles are looked at.

Questions like the following are asked and answered:
- How do we influence our children, consciously and unconsciously? What message do we give them about themselfs?
- How do we communicate with each other and with our children?
- What power do words have? What are positive suggestions and how are they used?

but also very practical topics are discussed:
- What to change so that we can live together more harmoniously as a family?
- How can I help my child to become more confident?
- and much more

Theory and tools for practical use at home are introduced in a small group, illustrated in exercises and role play, so that you can use them at home immediately.

Postnatal care

Coming home with a new baby brings some changes into your everyday life. As midwife and lactation consultant I will help you find your way through all your questions and challenges you may find in the first days and weeks, concerning topics as breastfeeding, care of the baby and well-being of the mother. The regular 10 or 16 visits in the first 56 days are reimbursed by the health insurance (Krankenkasse). If you wish a first talk about what to expect after birth I'm at your disposal. However, this is not part of the benefits that are subject to health insurance.

A couple of years after my education in midwifery I migrated to Naxos, a greek island in the middle of the Aegean Sea. There I got married and had three wonderful girls. Many of my experiences as a mother still influence my work nowaday. Since 2012 I'm back in Switzerland.
To help every new mother find her own special way with her baby and her family is very important to me.
