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.
You may have attended antenatal classes with your midwife during pregnancy, and found them informative. However, you might not have been taught any techniques to help you during labour and birth, and perhaps you are becoming very apprehensive and fearful as your pregnancy progresses. As the saying goes, ‘knowledge is power’, and I am passionate about helping pregnant women and their partners to have as much information as they need during pregnancy, to help them to have the most positive experience as possible when it comes to the birth of their baby. My aim is that you will look forward to the birth of your baby with excitement, rather than fear, and KG Hypnobirthing classes will provide you with a ‘toolkit’ of techniques which you can use during your labour and the birth itself. You will learn useful breathing techniques, hypnotic relaxation, visualisations, positive affirmations and gentle massage techniques which will enable you to feel confident, empowered and in control of the whole experience. It’s important to remember that a woman’s body is designed to be able to give birth, and Hypnobirthing can help you to trust your body, and tap into your natural birthing instincts.
The information provided in the course will also help you to make informed choices decisions about what you want - or don’t want - to happen during your labour and the birth of your baby. It’s important to point out that learning Hypnobirthing techniques doesn’t mean that you will have a perfect birth - however, you will be able to remain calm and focussed whatever circumstances arise, and you will have the birth that’s just right for you. This will enable you and your partner to be full participants in the process, so that once your baby is born, you can begin your new life as a family with positive, happy memories of your special day.
Hypnobirthing changed my life completely!
Hypnobirthing changed my life completely! I turned the biggest fear of my life into the most empowering experience of my life!
Amazed at How Well These Women Have Laboured
A lot of first time mothers come to us after taking hypnobirthing sessions. I have been amazed at how well these women have laboured. I’ve been called on several occasions and have thought the woman ‘wasn’t doing much’ and she has been 7 or 8 centimetres dilated. The training also enables them to remain calm and relaxed.

I Felt in Complete Control
We have been graced with the most beautifully relaxed and contented daughter which we are so thankful for. Her calm personality 'we are sure' is a direct result of the techniques and guidance we received from you during our course in May.
As the husband (and birth partner!!) I felt in complete control of the room and discussed with the midwife our exact ideas for the day and how WE wanted it to progress. This allowed my wife to concentrate fully on the act of birthing our child, which as you would have expected went perfectly to plan, 2 hours from arrival at the birth centre Liz was born in the pool to 2 ecstatic parents.
We are now just about to celebrate 1 month with her and each day brings more surprises, but with such a contented baby these are in the most part completely stress free. Such is the relaxed atmosphere being enjoyed at our house we have been asked by our health visitor to attend and talk to a group of first time parents.
I offer one-to-one in the classes in the comfort and privacy of your own home, as well as group classes.
The course lasts approximately 10-12 hours in total, over 4 weekly sessions. If you are near the end of your pregnancy, or short of time due to other commitments, it can be held over 2 full days
A deposit of £25 is required, and on receipt of this, you will receive the KG Hypnobirthing Relaxation CD, ‘Colour and Calmness’, so that you can start practising straight away.
You will receive a Parent’s Folder and useful handouts as part of the course.
If you have completed the course quite early in your pregnancy and would like a one-hour Refresher Session, this can be arranged.
I cover all of North and South Lanarkshire, as well as Glasgow. I am happy to consider other areas, but this may incur a charge for travel.
