Fertile Body Method (FBM)
Online Practitioner Training Programme
The FBM Online Training Programme is for anyone who wishes to help men and women conceive and have a baby. In particular the course is aimed at hypnotherapists, NLP practitioners and other therapists who want to use mind-body approaches in their work.
The aim of the course is to give therapists a range of mind-body techniques and a well-structured therapeutic framework within which these tools can be used effectively. Through the training you will gain a broad ‘tool box’ of the most useful mind-body approaches for helping people to regain wellbeing and enhance their fertility. The course is skills based and provides essential psychological knowledge about fertility problems and the best ways to work with it.
The course can be completed within your own time frame, from the comfort of your own home/clinic. Upon completing the programme you will receive a certificate and be eligible to be listed on the Fertile Body Method Therapist register, so that members of the public seeking help with fertility problems can find you easily.

The online training programme is open to qualified hypnotherapists, NLP practitioners and counsellors/psychotherapists who are familiar with guided visualisation and/or hypnotic skills.

Who the course is for?
The training is aimed at hypnotherapists, counsellors and nlp practitioner’s, it is open to those who are familiar in working with guided visualisation. For example the programme is open to practitioners qualified in other modalities such as acupuncturists, coaching, fertility massage therapist, hypnobirthing practitioner, reiki practitioner, reflexologist and nutritionists. The FBM training does not qualify you to practice as a hypnotherapist or counsellor. However, many of the principles and practices of the FBM can be applied in other ways. For example you can integrate them into your existing reflexology practice. The course will give you deeper insight into the mental and emotional factors that affect fertility as well as simple self help tools you can teach clients for managing the negative effects of infertility. It does not include nutrition. Once you have completed the course you will be able to promote yourself as a qualified The Fertile Body Therapist, specifying that you apply these tools and techniques within your reflexology practice, for example. You will also be listed on the Therapist Register where your professional qualifications are named (i.e. coaching, fertility massage, hypnobirthing, reiki, reflexology) so that members of the public are aware of the modality that you work in. Should you wish to use the Fertile Body Method as a stand alone talking modality you would need a coaching qualification or counselling or something similar so that you can be insured as such.
What assessments are there?
There are no examinations or marked assignments. All course questions and tasks are for revision and self reflection. To qualify you have to answer all the reflective questions, do the practical assignment, and attend an one to one. You can get feedback on your reflective questions during your one to one.
What skills are needed to do the course?
The Fertile Body Method is a mind-body approach to fertility. To get the most out of the course you will need to have a background in psychological approaches (counselling, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, NLP etc) and be confident in working with guided visualisation. Therapists who work with fertility problems using other disciplines (such as acupuncture, reflexology, herbs etc) can attend the training to learn more about the psychological and emotional aspects of fertility and to integrate some of the concepts and tools into their practice. But this course does not qualify you to practice as a hypnotherapist, counsellor or psychotherapist.
What is the difference between 3 day onsite Practitioner’s Training and the Online Training Programme? Which one is better?
Essentially the course content is the same but it is packaged and presented in different ways. There are advantages to both options. The 3 day onsite training is with other therapists, so it will naturally involve more discussion, sharing and live engagement. You will see live demonstrations and be able to practice the techniques you learn with the other therapists on the course. The online training material is more detailed, there is more material (audio, video, reflective questions and demonstrations) and you can watch it as many times as you like. You will also have a one-to-one supervision sessions with me (which you wont get in the onsite training) and you can attend as many Q&A webinar sessions as you like. The online course includes The Fertile Body Method – A Practitioner’s Manual and The Fertile Body Method: Practitioner’s Training online DVD Ultimately though, with both courses you will come away with a good understanding of the Fertile Body Method and all the skills needed to begin applying the techniques and tools successfully with clients.
What support will you offer me to market myself?
The Fertile Body Therapist Register is a free referral network that is marketed and promoted online and recommended by an increasing number of satisfied clients. To help you further market yourself I have created the Resources for Therapists area on the website which you will have access to. You will be able to download Fertile Body Therapist business cards, postcards, adverts, logos and flyers. You can customise these templates to suit your own needs. The free templates will give you a quick, easy, professional and well crafted way to present this work to potential clients.I am also available for one-to-one tutorial session to share my experience of what works and what doesn’t in terms of marketing and advertising in the fertility world.
What course material will I take away?
You will have the Fertile Body Method Practitioners Manual and Training online DVD along with a print out of your own personal notes that you make during the course. You also have access to all the web sessions, videos mp3s and webinars.
Can you do the training if you are not a therapist or a complementary health practitioner?
Yes. The course is aimed at therapists but can be attended by people who are interested in it for their own healing. If you are not a therapist this course will not qualify you to work with clients. Only fully trained, qualified practitioners (hypnotherapists, counsellors, acupuncturists, reflexologists etc) will be listed on the Fertile Body Therapist register.
What are the technical requirements for the course?
To do the course online you will need: • Internet access • Computer with microphone and speakers. • Headset with earphones and microphone is beneficial but not essential • A webcam is beneficial but not essential Throughout the course there will be technical support available to you by email.
Is there a required reading list?
The core text for the training is the Fertile Body Method: Practitioner’s Manual (Crownhouse, 2009). A list of recommended reading will also be provided in the Resources for Therapists.
What will you receive when you have completed the course?
All therapists who complete the training will receive an e-certificate and be eligible to be listed on the Fertile Body Therapist Register so that members of the public can find you easily.
How long will it take me to go through the programme?
The length of time it takes you to complete the programme will depend very much on how much time you are able to dedicate to it. A good portion of the time you will need is for reading the manual and watching the training online DVD. Over and above that, there is 1 compulsory hour long webinar (you can do more than one if you choose) and 1 practical assignment. There are also 10 web lessons with teaching and demonstrations videos, audio clips, and up to 10 reflective questions per lesson. The time needed for each lesson will vary but on average you will need a couple of hours per lesson. Student feedback indicates that on average people are taking between 90 and 120 hours in total to complete the course.

How to run a Fertility Support Group – Webinar
Would you like to run Fertility Support Group?
This webinar will teach you what you need to know to set up a Support Group and run it successfully.
Fertility Support Groups will greatly benefit the men and woman who attend. Research* shows that people who have good emotional support are less likely to experience the negative effects of infertility and, I believe, be more likely to go on to become parents.
Running a Support Group can benefit you too. It will give you; deeper insight into fertility problems, an opportunity to share and develop your skills, an ideal way to build your one-to-one fertility practice, raise the profile of your clinic and/or connect with other fertility therapists and medical professionals.
This unique webinar, developed by fertility expert Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer, is presented along with her guest Anya Sizer, support group leader at the London Women’s Clinic.
This webinar is for you if you want to:

• have to hand a ready-to-go structure for a support group meeting
• know about the ground rules that make a group work well
• learn good ice breakers and engaging discussion topics
• hear tips for keeping the group lively, interactive and growing
• learn how to deal with challenging situations that may arise
• have quick access to links and suggestions for promoting your group
The cost of the webinar is £25 (approx $30)
Who is it for?
The recorded webinar is open to therapists of all modalities. Please feel free to let your fellow acupuncturists, nutritionists, reflexologists etc know about it.
Although the recorded webinar is aimed at therapist, it will also be of value and interest to any man or woman who has experienced fertility problems and would like to set up a support group.
