The journey to becoming a parent can often feel like an emotional rollercoaster. When we enter this phase in our lives, the only thing that is absolutely certain is that having a baby changes everything, and life will never be the same again. We talk about the birth of a mother and the birth of a father. Whilst being a parent is the real you, it is a part of you that never existed before. It is a new role requiring new skills and a completely new set of rules.
It is important that women and men have the right support available to enable a smooth transition to parenthood so that they can enjoy the experience with their partner, any older children and their new baby.
This course is designed to equip you as a hypnotherapist/hypno-psychotherapist to assist your clients to:
- Adjust to their new lives as a mum and dad
- Empower them to recognise and overcome unhelpful thoughts
- Gain a sense of control in their lives.
- Enable you to help them reassess their identity as an individual and as a couple, their life’s goals and what their priorities are.
- Become ‘good enough’ parents, rather than striving for perfection.
- Relax into their new role as a parent, whilst also keeping the juggling balls in the air of their individual needs, their needs as a couple as well as the needs of their new baby.
Becoming a parent can be fulfilling and enjoyable. However for some women and men it can a daunting and overwhelming experience. The reality is that, throughout the world, postpartum depression (PPD) and anxiety (PPA) disorders affect a full fifteen to twenty percent of new mothers; and 1 in 4 men can also show symptoms. However these illnesses have, until recently, received little attention from the medical profession, and limited accurate media exposure and social awareness. PPD and PPA can impact on individuals at one of the most pivotal times of life, it is vital that we as therapists empower our clients to recognise and overcome them with appropriate support.
This course will also cover:
- Postpartum depression/Postpartum anxiety
- Postpartum obsessive compulsive disorder
- Postpartum post-traumatic stress disorder
- Postpartum psychosis
- Pregnancy/Antenatal mental health
The course includes:
- Video introduction and closing words from Sharon Mustard, easibirthing and parenting training founder
- Audio visual lectures narrated by Sharon Mustard, your course tutor
- Animated and illustrative videos to enhance your learning
- Hypnosis audio tracks for each section of the course
- Downloadable manual, full set of scripts and client tools
