Hypnobirthing Wiltshire - Teachers' Directory
I am a Katharine Graves trained Hypnobirthing practitioner and mother of two beautiful children. After Hypnobirthing both of my children, it became my passion, and I wanted to give women the chance to have a positive and empowering birth. I will teach you how to release fear, using positive visualisations, breathing and relaxation techniques, to give you the best birth possible.
I live in rural Wiltshire with my husband, our dog Billie and our chickens. We have grown up children, two daughters and a son, two son-in-laws, two grandsons, one who is 2 - whose baby sister arrived mid May (fabulous home hypno-water birth!) and our second grandson born on 19th June. I feel very passionate about empowering parents and providing them with all the relevant information that they need in order to make the right choices for themselves and their baby. Bringing a baby into the world in a calm and relaxed way can work wonders in terms of their subsequent development. A happy, content newborn in a happy mother's arms has got to be a good combination for a closer bond between mothers, their partners and their baby. Every parent and baby should be able to have the best possible birth experience - a joyful, calm, gentle time for everyone. I really enjoy teaching couples and empowering them with knowledge and techniques to enable them to achieve this - even if a natural birth is not possible.
My name is Natalie and I have two daughters who were born using Hypnobirthing techniques. I came across Hypnobirthing whilst pregnant in 2012 as I was looking for something to help me deal with my fears of giving birth. My Husband and I practiced it throughout pregnancy, used it during labour and birth and I often used it afterwards too. We had the most wonderful experience and it inspired me to want to help as many women as possible to achieve the same natural, calm and amazing birth. I then trained with Katharine Graves later in 2013, whose course is specifically designed for the UK market and is very flexible. I subsequently used hypnobirthing again to birth my second baby and once more had a wonderful birth, this time at home.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Having been inspired by the calm and focused experience that my daughter had after she and her husband attended one of Katharine’s courses in 2008, I knew I had to do Katharine’s Teacher Training course myself. In 2010 I was privileged to be able to offer a revision course when grandchild No 2 was expected.
I am a retired teacher and worked in Special Educational Needs for many years, in particular, with children with Asperger’s Syndrome and dyslexia. Alongside teaching, in 1998 I trained as an Advanced Hypnotherapist and in 2000/01 achieved NLP Master Practitioner status, which means that I have a great deal of experience in helping people to feel relaxed and comfortable so that I can work with them to help them solve a wide variety of problems. Adding Hypnobirthing to my portfolio of skills seemed a natural progression. In January 2014 I became a published author. My book, "When Charlie made a wish...", written in rhyme, aims to teach children (and adults) how to overcome their fears and let their inner superhero out. This is an invaluable lesson for first time parents-to-be. The book costs £10.00 + £2.00 postage and packaging. To order, email:
My interests include: entertaining my grandchildren, writing, theatre, films, music, gardening, walking, cooking and reading.
Hypnobirthing is becoming the favoured birthing method by a growing number of mothers as they become aware of it and how it can help them achieve a relaxed and stress-free childbirth.
All our KG Hypnobirthing teachers have undertaken a comprehensive course and assessment allowing them to teach our method. They are skilled and professional teachers keeping our expected high level of quality.
Teachers are also asked to sign up to our core code of ethics, agreeing to adhere to good practice at all times and also confirming that they will continue to promote natural birthing for childbirth and hypnobirthing as an effective choice for mothers.
