  • teacher-syllabus-threeHypnobirthing Online - Birthing Foundation 

    Before you start the course you need to have a basic understanding of the anatomy and physiology of birth and midwifery practices, so you fully understand the logic of hypnobirthing, how it affects the body and the hormones, and why it is so powerful and effective. This section includes the principles of active birth.  Midwives, obstetricians or people who have an in-depth training in birth receive exemption from this section, though many decide they would like to take this module as they find they learn to look at things rather differently.

    Birthing Foundation is web based learning with Katharine Graves, Elizabeth Nightingale RM and Kemi Johnson RM.   It will take you about two evenings to complete this module.  Please complete it before you attend the rest of the course, though we will always do our best to be flexible to help you.  This module will then be permanently available for your reference.

    It is a requirement of starting the KG Hypnobirthing Teacher Training Module that you have completed the Hypnotherapy for Hypnobirthing and the Birthing Foundation modules first (unless you are entitled to exemption from either of these modules).

  • teacher-syllabus-oneHypnotherapy for Hypnobirthing - Online Course

    Anyone can read a hypnotherapy script but, if you are going to understand the course that you are training to present rather than just administering it by rote, you need to have a deeper understanding of how and why it works so well, and experience of delivering and receiving hypnotherapy. We take our responsibility in creating the course and in training teachers seriously. We believe we are the best, and we want you to be proud that you are the best too.

    It takes about one evening to complete the Hypnotherapy for Hypnobirthing online course, with a further evening to complete the exercises you are asked to do on the course.  If you are a hypnotherapist you will not need to complete this module.

  • teacher-syllabus-twoHypnobirthing Teacher Training - 3 day face-to-face OR 5 Zoom sessions

    These days are the core of the KG Hypnobirthing Teacher Training Course. KG Hypnobirthing is far more than a few techniques to use in labour. If that was all, we could teach you in half a day. It is a complete antenatal programme that is logical and profound. Hypnobirthing fundamentally changes a woman’s reality so that she releases fear, trusts her instincts, and learns to work with her body. It is essential to understand how the system in which she finds herself works, so that she knows the alternatives available to her, and the implications of her choices.

    All our courses are designed to give you the best support from your teacher.  Zoom courses are taught by Katharine Graves.  For face-to-face larger groups we give you two teachers, usually a senior KGH teacher and an experienced midwife.  We make sure you are well cared for and receive the very best training, and our support continues to be available to you after the course.
