Hypnobirthing Buckinghamshire - Teachers' Directory
My name is Joelle and I run Body Birth and Babe teaching KG Hypnobirthing classes.
I am an experience midwife working on the birth centre at St Thomas' Hospital so have extensive first hand experience of the benefits of Hypnobirthing and how amazing it really is! For years I have been fascinated by how calm and in control Hypnomumma's are, and what a positive birth experience they achieve. This led me to persue my interest in Hypnobirthing and train as a KG Hypnobirthing teacher with Katherine Graves.
My teaching is very down to earth, light hearted and practical. I bring my expertise knowledge of birth and in-depth understanding of how the maternity services works to my teaching to equip parents with skills they need to navigate this system effectively and receive the care they want.
My name is Irja Howie and I'm a KG Hypnobirthing therapist based near Amersham, in Buckinghamshire. I have two little ones of my own and second was a hypnobaby - so I know frome personal experience what a huge impact KG Hypnobirthing has! I now feel passionate about helping other mums have the comfortable, beautiful birthing experiences they were made to have. I'm happy to travel within reason, so do contact me for KG Hypnobirthing in Hertfordshire, Surrey, Oxfordshire, Berkshire and West London.
My name is Becky. I'm a qualified Midwife and Health Visitor. I'm also the proud mother of my little boy. I had such an epic birth with him and I believe this is due to the knowledge and experience that my profession gave me. But not all women have that prior knowledge, which is why I think that KG Hypnobirthing is great! It provides parents to be with the Real information so that they can have a calmness during their pregnancy, Labour and the early days with baby.
I believe in empowering parents to be to have the best Birth possible for themselves.

Hi, I'm Sonia Wilkinson and I run HypnoBump
Based in Amersham, I'm a hypnobirthing specialist and I run a number of public courses (for between 5 to 10 couples) as well as private courses and one2one sessions.
Having indulged in two natural, pain free births - I can honestly say that for me, childbirth was a positive and empowering experience. I couldn't wait to hold my babies and even now (as the mum of two teenagers), thinking back to my births still brings a warm smile to my face.
I'm passionate about providing women and their partners with techniques that can really help them to achieve and maintain a relaxed state during pregnancy and facilitate a comfortable birth. I truly believe that whatever birthing environment you choose and regardless of the type of birth you have - the techniques that you learn as HypnoBump Parents will help to make your birthing experience an even more positive one.
I'm a graduate member of the British Psychological Society, qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Licensed NLP practitioner, Hypnobirthing specialist, mentored Doula and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Practitioner (amongst other things!). I'm registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register, The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and am fully insured.
After qualifying as a clinical hypnotherapist, I undertook additional training to become a hypnobirthing instructor under the delightful guidance of Katharine Graves. I was fortunate enough to attend doula training with Liliana Lammers & Michel Odent, the world renowned obstetrician and have also attended Gail Tully's Spinning Babies workshop.
Please feel free to give me a call or jot a quick email if you'd like any additional information.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.

I first discovered hypnobirthing in 2004 while pregnant with my first daughter. I was terrified of the prospect of a natural birth but went on to have a calm, pain free experience where I was in complete control. I have since had two fabulous home births using the hypnobirthing techniques.
Since 2005 I have helped many couples to birth confidently and calmly. I trained with Katharine Graves of KGH and now train trainers as well as running my parent courses.
Holding a BSc Psychology and Biology I recognise the importance of both psychology and physiology in the hypnobirthing training. The course educates and prepares the body and mind using well established biological knowledge about birth processes.
I spent ten years as a teacher giving me a catalogue of teaching methods to ensure you get the best from the hypnobirthing course.
Whether it is your first or fourth, each birth is a unique and emotional journey and I hope to help you to find the path that is right for you.
I have seen the difference that hypnobirthing makes in my own birthing experiences and of those that I have introduced to hypnobirthing. The KGH course I teach will give you the tools to have the positive, empowering, calm and comfortable birth that you want.
I teach hypnobirthing alongside pregnancy yoga, reflexology, giving classes in the Bucks / Berks area. I've been a midwife for 16 years and have a family of two, and I'd love to help you through the birthing process as well.
