Hypnobirthing Scotland - Teachers' Directory
I am Yazmyn, I am a registered midwife and hypnobirthing teacher. I have no children but have had the joy of witnessing the creation of other families. I am based in Errol and I am offering KG Hypnobirthing courses in and around Perth & Dundee. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like more information.
AS a practising Clinical Hypnotherapist with many years experience, I have seen the many benefits of Hypnotherapy to help reduce stress, anxiety and help build confidence and an inner peacefulness. This is so very clearly demonstrated with my hypnobirthing parents .Hypnobirthing allows me to teach mums how to work with their bodies during this wonderful special time. I enjoy working with mums and dads to help them grow together during the pregnancy and birth in a calm and relaxed way.
Hi I offer a wide variety of services from Conception to birthing and beyond. I work as a Complementary therapist and Hypnotherapist at the Rosemount Centre in Aberdeen where I also hold my Hypnobirthing classes.
I am currently undergoing Doula training and Placenta Encapsulation. My own deliveries were very much in the clinical style 30 years ago even though I wanted a more holistic approach so Hypnobirthing is very much close to my heart.
I want mothers to feel in control of their deliveries and to have the best birth experience possible.
My name is Valerie and I am a registered KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner and teacher as well as a registered Clinical Hypnotherapist and Master NLP Practitioner. I have always held a fascination with the mind-body link and I have explored this extensively in my career as a clinical Hypnotherapist and Master NLP Practitioner. I am excited to be able to use my experience and knowledge of both hypnotherapy and the mind-body link to guide you through the KG Hypnobirthing programme, ensuring you can use the skills taught to have the best birth possible for both you and your baby.
In addition to my KG Hypnobirthing diploma, I hold a diploma in Clinical and Advanced Hypnosis as well as a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma and I am a Licensed Master Practitioner of NLP®.
My qualifications in hypnotherapy allow me to be registered with both the National Council for Hypnotherapy and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) - an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
I am passionate about using my professional qualifications to allow you to understand how to work with your mind and your body to create a positive and uplifting birth experience for you, your baby and your partner. My aim is to ensure you are equipped with the knowledge and skills you need to allow you to approach your birth with a calm, confident, optimism that will allow you to enjoy and embrace the birth of your baby.
Hi my name is Suzanne and I'm a hypnobirthing mum too! I discovered hypnobirthing as labour absolutely terrified me and I was adamant there must be something out there that could help me get through it and there was! Hypnobirthing literally changed my pregnancies and made it such an amazing experience that I knew I had to pass this knowledge on to other mums-to-be so they can have the same positive experience as us.
Before undertaking the KG Hypnobirthing course,I was a registered nurse working in both hospital and general practice. This experience coupled with being a mother and grandmother has provided me with valuable knowledge and skills to ensure delivery of a caring and empathetic antenatal experience to you and your baby
My name is Helen and I am the mother to two amazing children; Jacob aged 2 and a half and Eve aged 1. I discovered hypnobirthing whilst pregnant with Eve and the experience changed my life! All of the anxiety, fear and pain I had experienced whilst in labour with Jacob was completely reversed during my labour with Eve; which was calm, controlled with no need for pain-relief, thanks to hypnobirthing. As a result she was born a calm, alert baby who slept and fed brilliantly.
I also have a first class honours degree in pharmacy and a postgraduate certificate in clinical education, and have been practising as a qualified pharmacist since 2003. Being a mum, with firsthand experience of hypnobirhting, as well as working in the medical profession gives me a unique perspective which mothers find very reassuring.
Having realised it is possible to achieve the birth of your dreams I am committed to helping other women have the wonderful experience they deserve too! Each baby is special so whether it’s your first, second or fifth baby it’s a magical moment when your little one arrives.
Congratulations on your pregancy! My name is Rachel Boyland and as well as being a qualified hypnobirthing teacher, I am also a registered midwife. My aim is to provide you and your birth companion with all the tools you need to have an easier, more calm and positive birth experience.
The effects of hypnobirthing are wonderful and will empower you to relax and trust your body and your baby . The course teaches simple deep relaxation, massage and breathing techniques which allow for a better birth experience. Hypnobirthing also values the contribution of your birthing partner, giving them a role in helping you to bring your baby into the world in most gentle and loving way.
Feel free to drop me and email or call me if you would like more information or you would like to talk more.
My name is Susan and I am the mother to two babies born calmly using Hypnobirthing so I know that it works! Both at home with no need for pain relief and no tearing. One of my favourite memories is being in my bed, with my husband and our baby girl beside us, sleeping away at 2 hours old. =) My background is in the IT industry so I was sceptical Hypnobirthing would work. I did some (lots!) of research and the logical conclusion was that it made sense. Nothing to lose and potentially a lot to gain and after training, we definitely did. To help put birthing back to being a happy even, not a traumatic one, I took the Royal College of Midwives accredited, KG Hypnobirthing training to become a qualified HypnoBirthing teacher to spread the word wider. My investigative nature means, that I am constantly updating my knowledge of birth and what others have found helpful with HypnoBirthing. I look forward to meeting you and discovering what works to help you to have the same fantastic experience of calm and informed birthing.
My name is Abi, I am a mum of two boys and live in the north side of Glasgow.
I am orginially from south east england, but have been living up in Scotland for 8 years after getting married to my husband whos scottish.
Im a qualified social worker, and have been involved in the social care sector for over a decade.
My family and friends are the most important this to me, but I also love cooking, baking, music and sport.
I was originally recommended hypnobirthing by a friend who is a midwife. I was initially skeptical of it and imagined it being a very alternative "tree hugging" approach. However, I trusted by friend and her opinion and went on the course. After having two very positive births of my own, I know that hypnobirthing works, and can transform your birthing experience.
Im really excited and honored to be able to support other couples to be able to experience positive births.
My name is Victoria. I am a qualified midwife and have four children. Throughout my career as a midwife I have worked in three large hospitals, two in London and one in Edinburgh. Completing my family in 2014, having four children under the age of 4 years old, gave me a different focus and changed my ideals. I had witnessed women using hypnobirthing for their birth experiences before and was amazed at the benefits. This is what led me to becoming a KG Hypnobirthing teacher. My vast experience as a qualified midwife and a Mum of four children gives me invaluable added knowledge. I am very passionate and excited about the programme I teach. I know it works! The knowledge and skills I will teach you will make a positive difference to your birth experience. I am passionate about positive birth and sharing knowledge and information to acheive the birth that you want. I provide KG Hypnobirthing classes, one to one, in West Lothian, South Queensferry, Falkirk, Kirkliston, Bo'ness, Stirling and Edinburgh. I also provide Relaxation In Pregnancy antenatal classes in Linlithgow on a Tuesday evening in 4 week blocks and Hypnobirthing Basics classes too as an introduction to Hypnobirthing. More information is on my Facebook page, KG Hypnobirhting West Lothian.
When I moved to Scotland and became pregnant with our first born I stumbled across hypnoses and relaxation as a type of pain relief during labour and birth. The folder I was reading was very detailed; however on this bit there was only one line of information. I decided to look into it and discovered something called ‘hypnobirthing’. It was like a whole new world that suddenly opened its doors for me. It was amazing! Suddenly women could give birth! I could give birth! I wasn’t just an illness that had to be subjected to protocols and checklists. No, I was a woman and this is what women do; give birth to our next generation. Pieces were falling together and I was starting to understand there is a different way to give birth. Having a degree in Earth Science and being specialised in human behaviour in extreme circumstances, I am fully aware of the cultural believes we all have and ‘suffer’ from. But, I wasn’t aware that I was part of such a big one myself: birth is painful and dangerous. The more I read, the more I understood. Yes, there are risk of being pregnant and giving birth, but being alive and doing things in the mean time always caries a risk, of course. However, that birth is meant to be painful wasn’t always one of them. I kept reading more and more reports of women that experienced an amazing, powerful, and in some of those cases pain free birth. I know, right?! I gave birth in May 2014 to a lovely little girl Hannah using the hypnobirthing techniques. It was a wonderful and powerful experience. It was so amazing I decided to become a teacher so I could share this knowledge with women around me who deserve, just like me, this option for her birth experience. I have been teaching in many fields over the past decade, therefore I can easily switch between different teaching methods to fit different needs. Being Dutch born I can also teach classes in Dutch if that is preferred. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am here to help. Susanne Grant BSc MA DipHB(KG)
I'm a full time mum of two wonderful wee people, hypnobirthing teacher and a part-time geophysicist.
I'm from south west Scotland but have been in Aberdeenshire for almost 10years, I love it here and my kids do too.
I found hypnobirthing during my first pregnancy through a wonderful yoga class and there's been no going back ever since. It made such a difference to both of my births that I felt compelled to train and allow more women to be able to experience a calm, relaxed birth. I love teaching hypnobirthing and sharing my passion for positive birth with other mums locally. Just get in touch if you'd like to know more about the classes available, I'm always happy to chat Hypnobirthing!
I’m Catherine, the mother of two grown-up children. I’ve been a Reflexologist with a particular interest in Pregnancy for 9 years, and a Clinical Hypnotherapist for 6 years. Over the years, I’ve seen for myself how much benefit my clients, especially those who were pregnant, gained from deep relaxation and stress relieving therapies. Therefore, training to become a KG Hypnobirthing Teacher was a natural progression for me, as it places emphasis on a calm, confident birth experience.
For 5 years, I was the in-house Reflexologist at a local major insurance company, where I provided relaxation therapies for their employees, as part of a Stress Awareness Programme.
