“I absolutely love the work I do and being able to support couples through what can be a hugely emotional and challenging time in their lives is a privilege. I love being able to give people the time and space to talk openly, honestly and without fear of judgment and to know that I’m making a difference in their lives.”

What my clients say

How I Work

With over 12 years’ experience and having worked with hundreds of couples I’ve developed a unique three step system enabling me to get the best results with my clients. My unique system allows me to properly explore and understand all the issues couples are facing on their fertility journey and then put in place relevant changes and support techniques to take the stress out of trying to conceive.

Through a bespoke programme of treatment we work together to achieve long term meaningful changes allowing my clients to get back to optimum health whilst feeling supported, understood and stress free throughout their fertility journey.

Step 1
Identify

The first part of the system is about identifying what’s going on right now for the client. This is my opportunity to really get to know my clients and the challenges they’re facing but to also set goals and outcomes for the treatment programme.

With many couples trying to conceive it’s the bigger impact their fertility journey has on their day to day life both physically and mentally. This means looking at all aspects of life such as stress, diet, work / life balance, self-care and so much more.

Step 2
Resolve

Once we’ve got a good picture of what’s going on we can work to change the things that aren’t working so well. This is achieved through a combination of treatment, lifestyle coaching, diet changes and other tweaks ensuring clients are getting the most out of life.

Step 3
Monitor & Maintain

As clients progress through their programme they learn how to look after themselves and are more aware of how their diet, work and stress levels impact on their health.

With ongoing support we can continue to build on the progress made to ensure you’re feeling super relaxed and super healthy.

The Sperm Comet test

Around 1 in 6 couples experience trouble trying to conceive and in approximately 40% of those cases the issues are said to be due to sperm quality. It is also thought that up to 80% of early miscarriages could be caused by faults within the sperm.

In most clinics men will only be offered a standard semen analysis, which looks at the motility (movement), morphology (shape) and concentration (quantity) of the sperm but cannot tell its quality. The most important element of a semen analysis is often neglected until there have been multiple IVF failures or recurrent miscarriages.

SpermComet® is a male fertility test that properly assesses the most important part of the sperm, the DNA. Sperm DNA contains all the instructions that will make your baby. Sperm DNA can be damaged during sperm production and storage, causing the DNA molecule to break into smaller fragments. This is known as DNA fragmentation which can affect your ability to conceive or have a healthy baby.

SpermComet® measures the amount of DNA fragmentation in your sperm allowing you to know whether that is a factor in your conception problems. The results also help guide you as to which course of treatment to follow should you be having assisted reproduction techniques such as IVF.

Properly assessing sperm in this way allows men to truly understand the quality of their sperm and with the proper guidance and support in lifestyle and diet make the necessary changes to improve their results and overall fertility.

At Hove Fertility and Wellness we’re pleased to be able to offer this test to male clients along with support programmes to enhance fertility. We offer a discreet and professional service allowing men to drop off their sample in a quiet and convenient location in Hove.

Free Discovery Consultation

I offer a free discovery consultation to anyone who’s interested in working with me. During this one hour session we’ll have an opportunity to properly explore what’s going on for you and the goals you wish to work towards. By the end of the session we’ll have a clear picture of what’s going on for you and the best next steps.

I’m very happy to offer this session for free to anyone who wants to explore working with me and in return I invite people to make a small donation to my chosen charity. I have teamed up with Fertility Network UK as a charity I wish to support through my work.
