Welcome to HypnoConceive®
The safe, natural & side-effect free fertility clinic
Hi, I am clinical hypnotherapist Nigel Spears and I would like to thank you for visiting this website to get the help you need. HypnoConceive is my small private fertility centre in Knutsford, which specialises in offering an additional or alternative treatment to other Cheshire and Manchester fertility clinics.
The expertly tailored clinical hypnosis (hypnotherapy) I use, is clinically proven to increase fertility, natural and assisted conception and healthy pregnancy maintenance. Hypnotherapy is powerful mind-body medicine. By helping restore mental and emotional balance and make positive changes in the mind, the body naturally becomes more fertile and able to conceive.
Hypnosis swiftly and effectively helps relieve or remove one of the biggest and most overlooked causes of infertility: mental and emotional blocks. As a result, hormones are rebalanced, egg quality improves and sperm count can increase by up to 800%. No other treatment does this. It’s perfectly natural, safe and side-effect free too.
It doesn’t matter who you are, how long you have been trying to get pregnant or whether you need diagnosed cause or unexplained infertility treatment, I can help. If you are having or about to have any type of IVF, my unique approach, gives you the opportunity to double your success. It also helps with egg and sperm donation or surrogacy difficulties and when other treatments are unsuitable or unsuccessful.
Ongoing support and hypnobirthing, are also available at HypnoConceive.
Why Choose HypnoConceive?
Unique and effective fertility treatment
When you choose the right fertility treatment, you increase your potential to succeed. To help you make the right decision, here is a little about HypnoConceive’ unique treatment. You can learn more by booking an initial consultation.
At HypnoConceive, I can help most men and women with the potential to conceive. I help singles and couples to get pregnant naturally and make treatment at other fertility clinics in Manchester and Cheshire, even more successful.
Although my extraordinary treatment is non-invasive, it effectively treats many physical and biological conditions and unexplained infertility. Ladies with anovulation, premature ovarian insufficiency (POI), OHSS and PCOS etc, which reduce fertility and treatment success, can be helped. I am also here to help men restore their sperm production, significantly improve sperm count and quality and alleviate other complications. These and other male and female fertility-related conditions often contribute to, rather than cause infertility.
No two people or fertility difficulties are the same. Therefore, I always expertly tailor treatment to meet your specific needs. It helps you get the best possible results, as soon as possible. In addition, you will always be listened to and supported, right from the start.
Having experienced years of infertility and treatment myself fuels my passion for providing fast, effective and affordable fertility treatment.
How treating your mind, effectively increases fertility, natural conception & IVF treatment success
To help increase your fertility and pregnancy success, it is essential that you have healthy mind-body connections. This means that when your mind and body work together in sync, the hormonal balance is restored increasing your bodies potential to conceive.
Any mental and emotional disturbance such as stress, anxiety or pressure etc, can often block fertility. If they are in your subconscious, you would not even be aware of them. Clinical hypnosis relieves or removes the deepest mental and emotional blocks comfortably, easily and quickly. No other fertility treatment does this.
Restoring existing mind-body connections and forming new ones, rebalances hormones and increases reproductive health. As a result, menstruation, ovulation and egg or sperm production can be restored, improved and regulated. Unexplained infertility can be defeated. The effects of endometriosis, polyps or fibroids etc in women, and varicocoele, erection or ejaculation difficulties in men, can be relieved or removed.
Healthy mind-body connections are also essential for IVF success and other infertility treatment. The excellent counselling and support available at most fertility clinics will help make your journey as smooth and comfortable as possible. However, it cannot restore the mind-body connections or remove the deep-rooted mental and emotional blocks which reduce success. Having your mind in the best possible place helps double embryo transfer success.
Hypnosis and pregnancy success, are highly compatible
Fertility, infertility and hypnosis are all governed by the creative positive part of your mind: the unconscious. Consequently, they cannot be controlled or made to happen consciously. You can do everything possible to allow or help them to happen, but you make them happen. It is called the “Law of Reversed Effect”. The harder you try to do something consciously which is controlled by the unconscious, the more difficult it becomes.
When you are struggling to get pregnant, you consciously try harder and put yourself under more pressure which could be causing or contributing to the difficulties. Ideally and much easier said than done, you should go back to making love rather than trying for a baby, particularly if you have unexplained infertility.
Just as there are different types of infertility, there are different types of trance (hypnosis). Clinical hypnosis is the therapeutic trance I use to break the symptomatic trance which causes or contribute to fertility difficulties. Because unexplained infertility has no physical or biological cause diagnosed, it is arguably a form of symptomatic trance caused by mental and emotional difficulties. Using the much more powerful unconscious mind to relieve or remove problems in the conscious and subconscious, makes my unique approach the perfect additional or alternative fertility treatment.

Clinical hypnosis and Natural Conception
Hypnosis increases pregnancy success by over 70% in 554 couples with unexplained infertility
Vyas, R., Adwanikar, G., Hathi, L., & Vyas, B. (2013). Psychotherapeutic intervention with hypnosis in 554 couples with reproductive failure. Journal of the Indian Medical Association. 111(3) : 167-9.
Hypnosis Increases Natural Conception by 50%
Domar AD. et al. Infertile women utilizing mind/body techniques such as hypnosis have a 42 – 55% conception rate as compared to 20% with in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Hypnosis increases pregnancy success by 65% in women with 2-12 years infertility aged 26-42
Dr. Peter Quinn, a pioneer in the field of fertility, used hypnotherapy with a group of women between the ages of 26 and 42 who had durations of infertility lasting from 2-12 years. 65% of the women went on to have a successful full-term pregnancy after hypnotherapy.
Hypnosis and natural conception.
Hypnosis based on imagery and a relaxation strategy was successful in facilitating pregnancy. The treatment was considered to have resulted in beneficial modification of attitude, optimism, and mind-body interaction.
Clinical Hypnosis and IVF
IVF patients should be offered hypnosis
As mind/body programs are effective for reducing negative emotions that may impair IVF success, patients should be offered such a program in conjunction with IVF.
Hypnosis beneficial to IVF procedures
Hypnosis as an adjunct to IVF procedures could be beneficial to those who are unable to conceive naturally.
Hypnosis doubles embryo transfer success
Levitas, E., Parmet, A., Lunenfeld, E., Bentov, Y., Burstein, E., Friger, M., & Potashnik, G. (2006). Impact of hypnosis during embryo transfer on the outcome of in vitro fertilization–embryo transfer: a case-control study. Fertility and sterility, 85(5), 1404-1408.
Hypnosis reduces anti-anxiety medication during embryo transfer
Hypnosis successfully restores menstruation in 75% of women with amenorrhea.
Who HypnoConceive effectively help
If you have the potential to conceive, we will treat you
Whoever you are, however long you have been trying, whether you need additional or alternative primary (never had children) or secondary infertility treatment, HypnoConceive can almost certainly help. If you are about to start or have already started IVF or other fertility treatment, I can help with all protocols at any stage.
My very different type of fertility treatment could be just what you need if treatment at other fertility clinics is unsuitable or unsuccessful. For instance, if you have POI, OHSS or are at risk of rejection or miscarriage, I can often help.
As conventional fertility treatment is extremely limited for men, and almost half of infertility is male, my unique treatment could prove invaluable. It can help restore sperm production by relieving azospermia (no sperm count). Sperm count can increase by up to 800% and significant improvements in quality, morphology and motility can be made. Other male-factor issues including erection and ejaculation difficulties can also be effectively treated.
If you have been refused other treatment due to NHS funding, already having children, serious illness or medication, contact HypnoConceive.

About hypnosis and hypnotherapy
Extraordinary fertility treatment that is safe, natural and side-effect free
Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are not the same. To help you understand what they are, how they work and what they can and cannot do, here is what you need to know.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. We can all be hypnotised, but only if we want to be. Whether you realise it or not, you probably drift into hypnosis, approximately 600 times each day. Most adults do. For instance, daydreaming, losing track of time and even driving.
Although hypnosis is like sleep, it is not sleep. It is a perfectly natural altered state of awareness, which generally results when your mind is focused and you feel comfortable and relaxed. Because you are not asleep in hypnosis, you have awareness which means that you always have control. When you come out of hypnosis, you tend to remember what you need to remember and forget what you need to forget.
Hypnotherapy, or clinical hypnosis, is the therapeutic use of hypnosis. It works at much deeper levels than traditional counselling and psychotherapy. Hypnotherapy is the only treatment able to access the unconscious mind and make positive changes in the much weaker conscious and subconscious minds.
The changes made in hypnosis are real and not imagined. Magnetic resolution imaging (MRI) brain scans show different areas of the brain and much more of it, are active in hypnosis than at any other time. They also show neuroplasticity: the brain’s ability to form new neural pathways and connections increases in hypnosis. These new neural pathways and connections effectively increase the mind-body connections needed for effective infertility treatment.
About mind-body connections
Mind-body connections are positive or negative affects our thoughts, feelings and emotions etc, have on our physiological health and wellbeing and vice versa. In other words, your mind affects the state of your body, and your body reflects the state of your mind.
Healthy mind-body connections are essential for pregnancy success. HypnoConceive specialises in infertility treatment which restores existing mind-body connection and forms new ones using the neuroplasticity mentioned above. I also work with other fertility clinics in Manchester and Cheshire, to help them do the same.
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.
Peace of Mind FAQ's
“Are all hypnotherapists the same?”
Definitely not! Because there is no current legislation regulating hypnotherapists or their training in the UK, absolutely anyone with little, meaningless or no qualifications can call themselves a hypnotherapist.
“What about HypnoConceive’ training and qualifications?”
HypnoConceive’ Nigel Spears MSc, studied hypnotherapy for seven years and received a Clinical Hypnotherapy Master of Science degree with distinction from the University of West London in 2015. There are around twelve more in Britain and Europe.
“Who should not be hypnotised?”
In the UK, anyone who has been diagnosed with: epilepsy or seizures, recent heart conditions, bipolar affective disorder, dissociative identity disorder, schizophrenia or other psychoses, should not be hypnotised.
If you have any questions or concerns that have not been answered above, call HypnoConceive. There is no pressure or obligation.

Now you know a little about my fertility centre, extraordinary infertility treatment and how I can help double your success at other fertility clinics in Manchester and Cheshire, perhaps it is time you learned a little about me.
I am Nigel Spears; HypnoConceive’ clinical hypnotherapist. After qualifying as a hypnotherapist in 2010, I set up my general practice Headstart Clinical Hypnotherapy. It provides expertly tailored clinical hypnosis, which has helped many adults and children get life-changing results. It has even helped when other treatments have been unsuitable or unsuccessful.
Helping patients get the best possible results, is just as important to me as it is to them. Consequently, I continue to develop my professional skills. As a result, I am one of only twelve hypnotherapists in the UK to be awarded a Clinical Hypnotherapy Master of Science degree. I have also had small scale insomnia research published in an international medical journal.
My personal battle with fertility fuels my passion and drive for providing effective additional or alternative fertility treatment for everyone. After additional training in male and female infertility treatment and the success of fertility patients in general practice, HypnoConceive was set up in 2018.
