Welcome to HypnoConceive®
Who we are and what we do
HypnoConceive is a small private fertility clinic based in Knutsford Cheshire owned and run by Nigel Spears MSc. He specialises in offering a very different type of fertility treatment: clinical hypnosis. Hypnotherapy is clinically proven to increase fertility, natural conception and IVF success. It’s perfectly natural, safe and side-effect free too.
To get the best possible results as comfortably, easily and quickly as possible, he personally tailors treatment to meet each person’s specific needs. He helps relieve or remove one of the biggest and most overlooked causes of infertility: mental and emotional blocks. No other treatment does this.
His powerful mind-body medicine uses the deeper parts of the mind to help restore the bodies physiological balance. As a result, it makes it easier to get pregnant and stay pregnant with or without IVF treatment. Egg and sperm quality improve, and sperm count can increase by up to 800%. Having our fertility treatment before IVF gives you the best possible chances of success, reduces rejection risks and medication side-effects.
It doesn’t matter who you are, how long you have been trying to get pregnant, or if the infertility help you need is unexplained or has a diagnosed cause, we can help. Our unique approach offers an effective alternative when fertility treatment options are unsuitable, struggle or fail. We can also help with egg and sperm donation or surrogacy difficulties.
HypnoConceive also provides hypnobirthing and ongoing support whenever you might want or need it.
Why Choose Us?
unique & effective fertility treatment
When you choose the right type of fertility treatment for you, you achieve the best possible results. Our unique approach offers a valuable addition or alternative to other fertility treatment options. To help you make the right choice, here is what you need to know about us.
At HypnoConceive, we treat all men and women who have the potential to succeed with or without IVF fertility treatment. Because every person and the infertility help they need are different, we always take the time to listen to you, get to know and understand you. Highly effective clinical hypnotherapy can then be tailored to fit you.
We can often help when age, eligibility or affordability restrict conventional fertility treatment. Women with premature ovarian insufficiency (POI), at risk of OHSS or suffering from other fertility-related conditions, are welcomed. Our treatment is also suitable for men and women whose fertility is affected by non-fertility related conditions, or prescribed medication.
As fertility treatment for men is limited, HypnoConceive’ treatment could prove invaluable. We can help restore sperm production, significantly improve count and quality and relieve many male difficulties.
Nigel’s passion for increasing fertility and pregnancy success comes from having suffered years of infertility himself. He uses his personal experience to help ensure you achieve the best possible results.
How treating your mind, effectively increases fertility, natural conception & IVF treatment success
Healthy mind-body connections help increase fertility and pregnancy success. This means that your mind and body need to work together and support each other to restore balance. Stress, anxiety and pressure etc, which you may or may not be aware of, significantly affect mind-body connections and reduce fertility. Our specialist treatment helps relieve or remove the deepest mental blocks to restore the connections.
Making the new connections helps to rebalance the hormones in men and women. As a result, menstruation, ovulation and egg or sperm production can be restored and regulated. Unexplained infertility or PCOS, endometriosis or fibroids etc in women, and varicocoele, erection or ejaculation difficulties in men, can be beaten. These and other fertility conditions often contribute to infertility rather than actually cause it.
Having healthy mind-body connections helps make fertility treatment including IVF even more successful. Although their treatment is primarily physical or biological, most offer excellent counselling and support to make your journey more smooth and comfortable. However, they cannot help with the deep-rooted mental and emotional blocks, which if left untreated will reduce success. This is what we do best. When you receive our fertility treatment before IVF, you have the potential to double your potential success.
How our specialist hypnosis and pregnancy success are clearly linked
You can do everything you can to allow or help pregnancy happen, but you cannot make it happen. That is because pregnancy happens with the help of the unconscious mind and not consciously. The harder you try to do something consciously which is controlled by the unconscious, the more difficult it becomes. It is called the “Law of Reversed Effect”. Take unexplained infertility for example. The pressure and stress from repeatedly trying to get pregnant could be causing infertility, or making it worse.
At HypnoConceive, we work directly with the unconscious mind. Conventional treatment cannot do this. This makes our unique approach the ideal additional or alternative fertility treatment option.
For the infertility help you need and to learn more about how we can help you, book an initial consultation today. It gives you the opportunity to discuss the help you need, learn more about hypnosis and hypnotherapy and how they could be just what you need.
Our treatment is for everyone
If you have the potential to conceive, we will treat you
Our very different type of fertility treatment is available to everyone with the slightest potential to conceive. We offer men and women with primary (never had children) and secondary infertility help. We can help you with and without IVF fertility treatment.
Safe, natural and side-effect free, our non-invasive treatment is an effective fertility treatment option for unexplained and diagnosed infertility. We welcome ladies with premature ovarian insufficiency, OHSS and rejection or miscarriage risks. Men with low or no sperm count, poor quality sperm and erection or ejaculation difficulties, are also welcome.

When you want or need our extraordinary fertility treatment before IVF, we will treat you. We will also treat you during and after IVF, to help increase your potential. We can also help when other types of fertility treatment have been considered unsuitable or refused due to age, NHS eligibility or availability, already having children, medication or serious illness.

Our extraordinary fertility treatment option
What you should know about our different type of fertility treatment
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. Most adults naturally drift in to and out of hypnosis around 600 times every day. Daydreaming, losing track of time and even driving are typical examples.
Hypnosis is like sleep but it is not sleep. It’s a perfectly natural altered state of awareness, which generally includes relaxation, increased focus and attention and willingness to change. Because you have awareness in hypnosis, 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, which is often called clinical hypnosis, is the therapeutic use of hypnosis. Unlike all other counselling and psychotherapy, hypnotherapy is the only treatment able to bypass the critical conscious and access the subconscious and unconscious. Brain scans have proved that different parts of the brain and much more of it are active in hypnosis than at any other time.
Hypnotherapy is mind-body medicine, which is proven to help with infertility. Working at much deeper levels than any other therapy, it significantly increases neuroplasticity: the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections. These new neural pathways effectively increase the mind-body connections needed for increased fertility and pregnancy success. With or without IVF fertility treatment, it is the ideal fertility treatment option.
About mind-body connections
Mind-body connections are the positive or negative affects our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and behaviours have on our 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.
At HypnoConceive, we use the power of the mind to increase the body’s potential of getting pregnant naturally or with other types of fertility treatment. We use existing mind-body connections, repair damaged or broken ones and create new ones to help make pregnancy success a real possibility.
It doesn’t matter who you are or how long you have been trying, with our help you could get pregnant without IVF fertility treatment. With our help before IVF fertility treatment, you can double your potential success.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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
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.

Meet your hypnotherapist
Nigel Spears MSc. PG Cert (Clin.Hyp.), PDCHyp, PDCBHyp, DBSCH
Hi, I am Nigel, and I would like to thank you for visiting HypnoConceive’ website. After having hypnotherapy myself, and discovering how powerful it is, I began training to become a clinical hypnotherapist. I started treating patients at my general practice: Headstart Clinical Hypnotherapy in 2010.
Because every patient and problem is different, I personally tailor treatment to meet each adult or child’s specific needs. Many of them have achieved life-changing results
To develop myself and make treatment even more successful for my patients, I continued to study with the University of West London. In 2015, I became one of the first (and last) therapist’s in the UK to be awarded a Clinical Hypnotherapy Master of Science degree. Shortly afterwards, I began training to specialise in treating infertility.
HypnoConceive was set up in 2018 to provide an effective addition or alternative fertility treatment option. It is the result of the success achieved in general practice and fuelled by my own battle with infertility.
I am an accredited as a Diplomate of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis and an advanced practitioner of the General Hypnotherapy Register. His research has been published in The International Journal of Psychosocial and Cultural Genomics.
