Case Study 3
Condition: Unexplained secondary infertility for five years
Prior to having ICSI treatment in January/February 2007
I commenced a course of NLP with Caroline Cavanagh.
Caroline used time line therapy, with the aim of
identifying the possible cause of my infertility. During the initial session it became clearly evident
that when I was aged five there were several incidents that had caused my subconscious mind not to want
any more children (my daughter was five at this time). This was predominantly due to starting school
and my mother giving birth to my second brother, releasing feelings of fear and insecurity. Other incidents
that came to light were an issue of bullying at nursery school and a weeklong hospital stay, during which
time I only saw my parents once a day.
I found the treatment very relaxing and was reassured that I was
completely aware of my surroundings and in
control at all times.
Following the sessions I was very relaxed
and slept well, although I had quite vivid dreams.
Caroline gave me exercises to do regarding bonding
and strengthening the relationship between me now and me
aged five. I felt this helped relieve a lot
of internal anxiety and also improved my confidence socially.
When I commenced my ICSI treatment I felt
quietly confident that it would work. I was also surprised at how
calm I felt throughout the treatment
and that I didn’t experience any physical side effects.
In March 2007 I had a positive pregnancy test
and am now 36 weeks pregnant.
