Every person’s physical health is related to their mental wellbeing. Getting an infertility diagnosis and going through infertility treatment is a mentally and physically exhausting process that can cause tension and stress and have a significant impact on a couple’s relationship. Often, finding out about infertility is unexpected and creates strong and conflicting feelings. It is important to know that you are not going through this process alone and that you can always seek help and support.
Psychological counselling should be a natural part of going through the infertility treatment process and therefore we recommend it to all our patients. An experienced psychologist helps find solutions to deal with big emotional changes and gives advice on how to better understand and support each other in the relationship as a couple.
We recommend psychological counselling throughout all stages of infertility treatment:
- You have learned that you cannot have a baby naturally
- You are about to start infertility treatment and are afraid of the process ahead
- You are currently undergoing infertility treatment and need advice on maintaining your relationship as a couple
- You have become pregnant after infertility treatment and need emotional support
- You need support during the postpartum period
- You need support after a miscarriage or spontaneous abortion
- You want to understand your emotions and learn to deal with them
- You want to learn new skills to cope with stress
- You want to acquire new communication skills

- Imago relationship therapy is actually suitable for all kinds of relationships: partners/spouses; parent-child; siblings; colleagues, etc;
- it takes an average of 10-12 sessions to achieve an effective result;
- during the Imago relationship therapy session, dialogue takes place between the people in the relationship and the therapist supports and guides the Imago dialogue so that it proceeds safely towards the fulfilment of the previously set goal;
- between sessions, it is important to focus on homework, which is built on the principle of being aware of and sharing important and valuable information with your partner;
- it is important to consistently practice Imago dialogue, which makes sharing your thoughts safe and creates a deeper bond;
- in the course of counselling, the people in the relationship learn how to deal with conflicts and how to maintain and create a relationship that brings joy and satisfaction to both parties.
The duration of the session is 90 minutes maximum.
