Hypnobirthing Surrey - Teachers' Directory
I am firstly a Mum to our two beautiful children (aged 5 & 7), I am also a qualified NCT Antenatal Teacher, Massage Therapist, Baby Massage & Baby Yoga teacher and currently a 2nd year Student Midwife.
My name is Lesley and I live in Haslemere, Surrey with my husband Jeremy and some of my 5 children. The children range in age from 27 down to 17 (4 boys and 1 girl). The whole period of my childrens' childhoods has flown past and I would not have missed any of it. ( Very fortunately I have not had to). Their births were varied and apart from a caesarean section for my first son who was breech, then a forceps delivery for my second child as he was slightly stuck, the other 3 children were born very easily and with no other birthing difficulties. Having watched them grow up (they are all adults now) they are now an absolute delight to me and I enjoy their company as fellow adults as much as I do any of my best friends.
Long before I had my own children I wanted to work in the neonatal world but it wasn't until 2008, when my children were old enough, that I had time to do an Access to Nursing & Health Professions course at Guildford College, and my aim back then was to become a midwife. I heard about Doulas for the first time just after I finished my course in 2010. After some research I understood that their ethos sat very comfortably with my own belief that childbirth is a natural process which, given the right tools and emotional suport, most women will come through with beautiful memories of a very primitive and wonderful experience to treasure all their lives. As a recently qualified KG Hypnobirthing teacher I now have the perfect tools to teach pregnant couples how to have the best (and sometimes pain-free) birth possible for them. The sense of achievement for a woman is extraordinary and this should be available to all women; so it is with this belief that I feel that to be able in this part of a couple's journey into parenthood is an amazing privilege. I can offer you support in the form of practical help, emotional support (you may need both in varying amounts) and hypnobirthing techniques that can be also be used as coping skills in other potentially stressful situations throughout life. I also offer non-judgemental advice during the build-up to the birth and in the immediate post-natal period, as you adjust to your beautiful new addition.
Hello! My name is Jo Snellin and my aim is to guide you through a happy and calm pregnancy to a happy and calm birth.
I became passionate about birth and the magic of the female body and all it can achieve after the birth of my two children. My first son was born in 2013 at hospital, under strip lighting and with all of the drugs! I had very little understanding of how the female body works during labour and was unable to remain calm when things didn't quite go the way I thought they would. Luckily for me my baby was born healthy and happy but I felt disconnected from his birth and my body and constantly wondered what I could have done to prevent this. So, when I fell pregnant with my second son in 2015 I decided straight away that I wanted a different experience, so signed up to a KG Hypnobirthing class.
I learnt all about my body and the power of the mind and how if I allowed them to work together naturally and harmoniously during labour I could peacefully and calmly welcome my baby earthside. It was such a life changing, empowering experience that I decided there and then that I wanted to help other women experience this calmness during their pregnancy and labour.
Our bodies and the beautiful birth system within us are already perfect - I will simply teach you how to access it.

Proud and delighted to be a KG Hypnobirthing teacher and a recognised birth doula registered with Douka UK.
My son was born in 2011, my daughter in 2013 and my third baby is due in May 2016. I will always treasure and look back on my pregnancies and my two natural, smooth and calm labours with pride and happiness and I am looking forward to my third labour too.
Giving birth to your baby is one of the most awe-inspiring, wonderful and potentially empowering and rewarding thing you will ever do but it can also seem to some as one of the most daunting or frightening things to do too, and memories of your labour will stay with you forever. This is why having a positive birth experience is so very important. As a fully qualified KG Hypnobirthing teacher my aim is to help you have a wonderful, calm, smooth and empowering birth experience, learning skills that can also so easily be adapted to other situations seeking a calm, confident approach in your lives.

Hello, congratulations on your pregnancy!
I have taught hundreds of women ‘how to’ use their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier, more comfortable birth.
My journey began back in 2008 when I started teaching pregnancy yoga in the heart of London. The class was so popular and the mums-to-be seemed so stressed I decided to add some hypnobirthing techniques. I was so impressed with the results this naturally led me to offering couples the full hypnobirthing course.
Today I enjoy running classes and courses in London Waterloo and Purley Croydon.
If you are looking to enjoy your pregnancy and prepare for a calm and confident birth – however it shows up – Joyful Body Birth is for you.
I look forward to welcoming you.
Hypnobirthing DipHb(KG), Yoga Teacher & NLP Coach
I believe that birth of your baby is a unique incredible milestone that will be remembered and reflected on forever. A woman’s birth is very personal and the choices that are made for herself, her baby, and her family should be upheld and respected. As a Hypnobirthing teacher I will provide you with tools and knowledge that you too can achieve a calm, relaxing, peaceful and empowering birth. I am lucky enough and hugely blessed to have three sons, the birth of my first son and with no pain relief, was not the easiest of births. My second son’s birth was far quicker and also with no pain relief still not a very easy time. After his birth I decided to train as a hypnotherapist/psychotherapist, and a couple of years later I then fell pregnant with my third son, it was at this time I decided with all my new knowledge and determination that I would flow through this birth with no fear or pain. I began to change my thoughts and feelings about my previous births, I built on my confidence and alleviated any fears I had. I made myself a hypnosis relaxation tape (a tape - yes, it was a few years ago!) and after having to be induced I took myself off into my world of relaxation, I had no pain throughout contractions and when it came to push, I was calm, tranquil and at ease, again, without pain. My son was born and was the perfect baby (of course, just like all mothers would say!) he was calm relaxed and totally at peace. I left the poor midwife dumbfounded. The whole experience was such a unique, amazing, positive, life changing birth I knew I had to help other women to also achieve such an experience, I eventually found KG hypnobirthing, having trained with them and achieved a hypnobirthing diploma DipHP (KG), I now help other couples feel prepared and confident about pregnancy and childbirth through private or group classes. I have trained extensively in hypnotherapy/psychotherapy and Neuro–Linguistic Programming and hold a diploma in Therapeutic Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (Dip.THP) and an Advanced Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (Dip.AdvHYP) with the National School of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (N-SHAP). I am also a full member of The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR). I practice according to the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council code of ethics and have a full Professional Indemnity Insurance. I am also a certified Practitioner of the Usui System of Reiki Healing and is an Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) practitioner.
My name is Mandy Mole and I am a HypnoBirthing Practitioner and retired midwife holding private classes for couples from my home in Woking, Surrey and in the M3 corridor (West Surrey, North Hampshire and East Berkshire/Buckinghamshire borders). I have 30 years experience in midwifery in various hospitals and Birth Centres in West Surrey and Berkshire gaining extensive experience in ante-natal, labour and post-natal care. I am also a qualified ante and post natal exercise instructor and have been teaching privately for the past 25 years. In 2008 I became a certified HypnoBirthing Practitioner and in 2011 a baby Massage Instructor so have added that to the services I offer. I am committed to personal and professional development and regularly attend training courses. I am registered with the NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council) and I am a member of the RCM (Royal College of Midwives) I am a member of R.E.P.S (Register of exercise professionals) and FEDANT( fedaration of ante-natal teachers) I am affiliated with The HypnoBirthing Association, and I am also DBS checked. I have private insurance through REPS and FEDANT.
Throughout my life’s journey I have met and come across many people who have influenced and have had a profound effect on me. None more important than the women who I have worked alongside and whom have changed my life since 2004. In addition to my training, as a hypnobirthing practitioner, I am totally non-judgmental and give clear guidance, information and support before and during the birth.
Hypnobirthing is a form of natural childbirth which involves training expectant mothers how to use effective hypnosis techniques as part of a more calm and relaxed birth for them and their child. We believe that this gives you, as a mother, more peace of mind over your birthing, and also gives your birthing partner much more involvement in the birth in a very positive way.
KG Hypnobiring is growing, so wherever you are, we hope that you will be able to find one of our practitioners near you. Here in Surrey, we have members in Farnham, Godalming, Guildford, New Malden and Reigate, so wherever you live in the county, someone local should be able to give you support and training in hypnobirthing techniques for the birth of your baby.
Every one of our registered practitioners has been carefully assessed to ensure they fulfil our entry requirements, with extensive experience of teaching at least one of the recognised hypnobirthing methods.
