Amira Posner is a Social Worker with a counselling practice geared to helping women, men and couples struggling with infertility. She provides support in dealing with emotional stress associated with infertility. Amira also facilitates the Mind-Body Fertility Group at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Toronto, ON.
Amira has her Masters in Social Work and is professionally trained as a hypnotherapist. It was Amira’s own personal experience with secondary infertility that was the catalyst behind Healing Infertility. Happily, her fertility journey ended joyfully with the birth of her twins conceived through IVF. The result of this experience encouraged Amira to dedicate herself to helping others learn how to reduce mind-body stress and cultivate new ways of relating to their fertility experience.
I take a proactive approach to helping each of my clients achieve their goals. My style of therapy is not just about listening to what my clients have to say, but on working with them to expand awareness and understanding and to find practical solutions. Individuals dealing with infertility often feel isolated and misunderstood and there is a dearth of resources available to them. My primary objectives are to: make them feel supported; normalize their experience; help with decision-making, and provide them with hope and empathy as the make their way through a difficult life journey.
