Our Team – Psychologists
The experience of stress related with infertility may be compared to the one experienced in the fight against cancer.
Infertility often confronts us with with strong fear, anger, despair, guilt and helplessness. The process of infertility treatment is then the time in which we need to pay great attention to our emotional well-being.
Meeting with a psychologist at IVITA is the opportunity to receive psychological support adequate to your specific situation and needs. It may take the form of a single psychological advice, a cycle of psychotherapeutic meetings or a psychological diagnosis. With the consent of the patient, psychologists cooperate with the gynecologist and other specialists involved in the treatment of infertility in order to support the medical proceedings as effectively as possible.
A unique offer, which combine psychological knowledge, coaching techniques and mindfulness methods aiming at the support of women in the prolonged wait for a baby, has been prepared with IVITA patients in mind.
Fertility workshops is a cycle of meetings in small groups helping us to build new, supporting beliefs and attitudes related with maternity. The workshop is a combination of the personal development path and change as well as the support coming from the group in a similar situation. The process is developed with a constant support of the two leaders, who possess the competences of a psychologist, trainer, coach and awarness teacher.
Some effective support in the treatment of infertility include technique related with mindfulness and method integrating the mind and the body. It is a way to develop a better understanding of oneself, to calm down and be closer with one’s own thoughts, emotions and feelings from the body. Meetings can take place in the form of individual classes or in intimate groups participating in the program of implementation of mindfulness into their lives.
