Welcome to HypnoConceive®
Extraordinary Fertility Treatment – Outstanding Results
Welcome to HypnoConceive, I am Nigel Spears and I specialise in non-invasive fertility treatments. Whoever you are, wherever you are on your journey, I can help you to effectively increase your potential to conceive and maintain natural or assisted pregnancies.
At Reproductive Health Group’s hospital in Cheshire and at our satellite clinics in Bolton and Knutsford, I specialise in relieving or removing one of the biggest and most overlooked causes of infertility: mental and emotional blocks. It helps restore the mind-body connections essential for pregnancy success.
By expertly tailoring clinical hypnosis (hypnotherapy) to meet your specific needs, you have the potential to:
- Restore and rebalance hormones
- Restore and regulate ovulation
- Improve egg quality and production
- Restore sperm production, increase quality and count by up to 800%
- Double in vitro fertilization transfer success
- Make other fertility treatments more comfortable and successful
- Deal with difficult or unsuccessful treatment
- Overcome egg or sperm donation and surrogacy difficulties
Why Choose HypnoConceive?
We help make getting pregnant much easier
It’s a fact that for the best possible chance to get pregnant naturally or with help, your mind has to be in the best possible place to help your body to conceive and maintain a healthy pregnancy. Pressure, stress and other mental and emotional difficulties often block fertility and pregnancy success.
Working at much deeper levels than other counselling and psychotherapy, I help you to break free from every day and fertility-related difficulties comfortably, easily and quickly. As a result, your potential to conceive naturally or with in vitro fertilization automatically increases. The use of hypnosis to increase fertility and pregnancy success is evidentially supported.
Clinical hypnosis, fertility and pregnancy success are perfectly matched. They are all governed by the unconscious mind, not the conscious. Trying to do something consciously, which is under the control of the unconscious, causes conflict and makes it more difficult. This definitely applies when you are trying for a baby. You can help it happen, but can’t make it happen. As hypnotherapy and conception work on the same level, it effectively increases your potential to conceive naturally or with other fertility treatments.
Even though we only work in the mind, HypnoConceive’ unique approach effectively treats many physical and biological fertility conditions. Low AMH, OHSS, tubal blockages and damaged or irregular reproductive systems, for example. Quite often, these and many more, only contribute to rather than cause sub-fertility. We use the power of the mind to significantly reduce their effects.
When other non-fertility related conditions are stopping you getting pregnant, we can often help. We can often help when other fertility treatment is unsuitable, unsuccessful or unavailable.
As we increase your reproductive health, positive changes automatically improve your personal, professional and social life.

Our Extraordinary Treatment
How we increase fertility, natural pregnancies & in vitro fertilization success
By personally tailoring clinically proven and innovative clinical hypnotherapy to meet your specific needs, you increase your potential to conceive and maintain healthy pregnancies fast. To help you learn a little more about HypnoConceive’ perfectly natural, safe and side-effect free fertility treatment; here is what you need to know.
Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are not the same.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis, or trance, is a perfectly natural altered state of awareness that most adults drift into approximately 600 times every day. Daydreaming, driving, enjoying what you’re doing and losing track of time are typical examples. We generally drift in when we are comfortable or relaxed, our mind is focused and we become absorbed. It’s called awakened hypnosis and is generally therapeutic.
There are other states of hypnosis; one is symptomatic trance, which you will have been in many, many times and maybe persisting. Focusing and becoming absorbed in getting pregnant, finding the best possible time or fertility treatment and worrying about the results, will definitely have taken you in. HypnoConceive uses therapeutic trance to break symptomatic trance comfortably, easily and quickly.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis and you can only be hypnotised if you want to be. Because you are not asleep and have awareness in hypnosis, you are always in control.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is also known as clinical hypnosis. It is the therapeutic use of hypnosis and the only treatment able to access the unconscious mind which has overall control of conception. By delivering expertly tailored and non-invasive mind-body fertility treatment directly to the unconscious mind, we relieve or remove conscious and subconscious fertility blocks. The changes in the mind significantly improve physical and biological reproductive health making it much easier to conceive naturally or with in vitro fertilization.
MRI brain scans prove that real changes are made in hypnosis. Scans show that different areas of the brain and lots more of it are much more active in hypnosis than any other time. They also show neuroplasticity increases in hypnosis too. Neuroplasticity is the minds ability to form new functional neural pathways and connections and break dysfunctional ones. This is how I restore, improve and increase the mind-body connections essential for pregnancy success.
What are Mind-body Connections?
Mind-body connections are quite simply how our mind affects our body and how our body affects our mind. For example, if we are physically unwell, it can make us down and depressed. If we are anxious or stressed, it can cause headaches, conditions like IBS and as you already know; sub-fertility. So, we all need healthy mind-body connections to keep us healthy and well physically, mentally and emotionally.

Frequently Asked Questions
“Are there any side-effects?”
The only known side-effect of hypnosis and hypnotherapy is that you could fall asleep.
“Can I get stuck in hypnosis?”
Absolutely not! You can always bring yourself out of hypnosis whenever you choose.
“If I can hear things in hypnosis, am I really hypnotised?”
Because you are relaxed in hypnosis and not asleep, you have awareness. Just like in daydreams, you still have some conscious awareness of what you hear and what is happening.
“How will I know that I have been hypnotised then?”
It can be easily proved to almost everyone, that they have been hypnotised at the end of a session.
“What does hypnotherapy help with?”
Because hypnotherapy is mind-body medicine, it effectively treats a wide range of physical and biological medical conditions as well as mental and emotional issues. It comfortably, easily and quickly helps change thoughts, feelings and behaviours to achieve dreams, goals and ambitions.
“How long will it take and how many sessions will I need?”
Hypnotherapy is classed as brief therapy. This means that the results are expected to happen in weeks, not months. Although change can happen with a single session, an average of 6 – 9 may be needed for fertility. The number of sessions you require depends on your difficulties, your commitment to the sessions and work outside of them and, me being the right therapist with the treatment you need.
“How will I know hypnotherapy and HypnoConceive is right for me?”
Come and talk to us, it’s the only way. If you feel comfortable when you do, then we are probably right for you.

Your Fertility Hypnosis Specialist
Nigel Spears MSc. PG Cert (Clin.Hyp.), PDCHyp, PDCBHyp, DBSCH
When in vitro fertilization was in its infancy and not an option for me, I realised that the state of the mind helps to effectively increase fertility and pregnancy success. After six years of battling with physical and biological fertility conditions which were blocking us from getting pregnant, we were told to consider fostering or adoption. When we did, the pressure and stress from trying to get pregnant disappeared and we conceived our daughter just two months later.
After qualifying as a clinical hypnotherapist in 2010, I set up my general practice Headstart Clinical Hypnotherapy. Many adults and children have achieved life-changing results with my expertly tailored clinical hypnotherapy. Men and women needing help to get pregnant were amongst them. My passion for effectively increasing fertility, natural conception and IVF success; safely, naturally and with no side-effects, resulted in me opening HypnoConceive in 2018 after further training. As additional or alternative fertility treatment, I can often help when others can’t.
My passion for striving to help patients receive the best treatment and achieve the best possible results has resulted in me being awarded one of only twelve Clinical Hypnosis Master’s Degrees in the UK. I am also a diplomate of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis and have had small-scale research published in an international medical journal.
