Hypnobirthing Surrey - Teachers' Directory
My name is Helen and I live in Surrey with my two young children, husband and our cat Olive. Through-out both my pregnancies and births I used hypnobirthing. It truly did give me the births that I had hoped for, which were both calm and empowering experiences.
Through teaching KG Hypnobirthing I hope to share the wonderful benefits it can have on your own birthing experiece.
Hello, thank you for reading my profile my name is Paula. I am a Senior Research Midwife with 10 years experience within the NHS and a further 10 years as a registered Nurse.
I have always been very passionate about empowering women and providing them all the support and care possible. Often the approach within the NHS is clinical one regardless of necessity and that combined with working restrictions led me to explore avenues to provide extended support and care.
To allow me to provide this support and care for woman and their families making the most of the childbirth experience, I founded “The Nurtured Munchkins” a company that offers support Antenatally, during childbirth and Postnatally.
I offer KG Hypnobirthing classes, acupuncture, moxibustion therapy, baby massage and baby yoga classes. All classes are one to one in the comfort of your own home (or in Woking if you prefer) lets face it group classes aren’t for everyone, you might have a busy family life, don’t feel comfortable sharing feelings or thoughts with other couples.
I specialise providing support and classes to 1st time Mums, home births, IVF pregnancies and those with previous traumatic experiences.
Feel free to give me a call or drop me an email. I look forward to helping you find the right approach for you.

Hi! I have three step-children, and I'm auntie to Callum and Chloe. I have an in-depth knowledge of IVF having gone through the procedure myself.
I can also offer a birthing photography service to Mums who would like a forever record of their little one entering the world.
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, my name is Dariya and apart from hypnobirthing, I have a background in teaching dance, yoga and meditation. I have always been passionate about everything related with the power of the mind&body. I found about hypnobirthing when I got pregnant with my first baby and just thought It would be too selfish not to share it with other women. It did make a profound difference in my nearly 48 hour long labor and thanks to the hypnobirthing techniques and knowledge I managed to have a natural and pleasant birth. I am absolutely in love with this method as it provides a complete antenatal education and gives you the tools to have the best possible natural birth. After the course, you will be full of confidence and trust in the power of your own body to birth your baby beautifully and joyfully. An experience that will empower you for the rest of your life.
I started my career in the theatre industry where I worked for 13 years in London and New York before I was introduced to Hypnobirthing. After the birth of my daughter, I felt passionate about the power of the female and the right every woman has to have a positive birth experience. Six months later, I trained to become a Hypnobirthing teacher with KG Hypnobirthing, a course accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. I now work with parents to build their confidence and give them the tools to not only make a difference to their experience of birth but to give their baby the best possible start in life. I also run the Positive Birth Movement, Redhill & Reigate and am a member of the Maternity Services Liaison Committee for Surrey and Sussex.
I am a fully qualified and registered Hypnobirthing pratictioner with the Royal College of Midwives accredited KG Hypnobirthing course. I have a passion for empowering women and their partners (other half or nominated birth partner) to have the best birth possible for them. I can assist you in achieving a calm and relaxed birth where you are in control. I am also a mother of two hypno-babies and am passionate about more women gaining access to information that will help them achieve a comfortable and wonderful birth experenience.

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.

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.
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.
