Always based on research
At Tilly we believe in science. Tools that can help us through difficult times luckily already exist, but our psychologists have adapted them for the unique challenge that infertility and loss is.
All the facts and exercises in the course (and the order you do them in) have been proven effective in peer-reviewed scientific research literature. Our interventions are based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), and the Fertility Quality of Life (FertiQol) Tool.
