RECONCEIVE COUNSELLING is different because Rita Schnarr has also personally experienced infertility and the needed treatments lasting over a decade. She can relate to her client’s situation and can therefore, help them cope and heal. Rita uses integrative, client-centered therapeutic techniques to help guide her clients towards emotional healing. Her counselling approach is 'solution-focused' empowering them to 'reconceive' ~ in other words, 'consider again especially with the possibility of positive changes and outcomes.' The primary goal and mission is to 'give back' by sharing, teaching and helping others with successful, proven techniques that have worked on herself as a former patient and others whom she has collectively provided consulting, coaching and counselling services for over the past 20 years. Her philosophy mirrors that of the Grace Fertility Centre in providing a “holistic and balanced approach” so that the well-being of each patient is ensured for optimal success rates. This includes integrating counselling during all stages of the patient’s fertility journey. Besides providing counselling services, Rita Schnarr also delivers webinars and seminars in association with other professionals to provide new and existing patients with information to help them make informed decisions and apply coping tools before, during and after all fertility treatments. Rita Schnarr was the former Regional Manager, Western Canada for the “Infertility Awareness Association of Canada (IAAC)” where she launched the “IVF4BC” campaign and ran all patient support groups and activities. As well, she served on IAAC Board of Directors for four years; was the first “Patient’s Perspective” Columnist in the Creating Families Magazine; and has been actively involved as a speaker in educational forums to help people with their fertility challenges.
