Philippa Gallagher – Harrogate Healing Hypnotherapy

One of the aims of hypnobirthing is to remind you that childbirth is natural and that you own body is perfectly designed to deliver a baby in its own unique empowering way.

Hypnobirthing classes help you to stay relaxed, confident, calm and enable you to release the fears that course tension and pain.


I have worked for nearly 30 years in the NHS as an Occupational Therapist, specialising in Mental Health and I recognise the importance of how our emotions have an important role on our physical and emotional wellbeing. Additionally, I am a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist having trained with the London School of Clinical Hypnosis and a member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis. I am very passionate about the benefits of hypnotherapy in feeling safe, relaxed, utilising our incredible unconscious minds in making our lives harmonious and secure.Having witnessed the many advantages of hypnotherapy, I trained with Katharine Graves in becoming a hypnobirthing teacher, enabling women to work with their bodies to give birth, feeling calm, confident and in control, enabling mother, baby and their partner to have an incredible experience of pregnancy and birth.

“Me and my partner thoroughly enjoyed the hypnobirthing course, which was very positive, informative and relaxing to prepare us for the arrival of our gorgeous baby boy.  During and after the course, I felt relaxed, letting go of my fears and felt prepared for the birth.”

“I used the techniques we had learnt in labour and the midwives said they could tell I was a hypnobirther having a calm, quick labour.”

“Philippa who ran the course was so enthuasiastic and passionate about hypnothearapy and hypnobirthing which filled us with confidence.  I dont think the birth could have gone better which is down to the support from Philippa and the hypnobirthing course, we’d defiinitely recommend it.”

I run 12 hour hypnobirthing courses and these are usually configurated over 4 sessions of 3 hours, these are small groups or alternatively I can offer individual sessions within your own home.

On reserving a place you will be sent the Hypnobirthing Relaxation CD, Colour and Calmness. At the class you will also be given The Hypnobirting Book and a folder of handouts to guide your practice at home.


Group sessions £250

Private sessions £400
