Hypnobirthing Bedfordshire - Teachers' Directory
I will openly admit that my first impressions of hypnobirthing before I understood it were sceptical; I felt at the time it was something for other people, not something for me. I remember going to a new baby event at Mothercare and there was a lady there poised to speak to people about hypnobirthing; I walked straight past the stand dismissively. Admittedly I had never given it time to fully understand how it could help me and my birth.
Hypnobirthing changed my life and it's for that reason that I decided to train and become a teacher, so I could empower other women in their births. I'd already completed a bachelors degree but decided to go back to study and complete my hypnobirthing training with Katharine Graves (The KGH Method) as a registered member of the Hypnobirthing Association, with the course being accredited by The Royal College of Midwives.
I passionately believe in the KG Hypnobirthing teachings and the difference it can make to the mother's birth experience and the baby's wellbeing at birth. The positive effects of hypnobirthing and being born in a calm, alert and controlled way can have positive impact throughout a baby's life. I am also a qualified Hypnotherapist and member of the National Hypnotherapy Society covering many conditions releasing fear and anxiety. I am a practising Reiki Master with 20 years’ experience. My courses are held throughout Bedfordshire either within small groups or individual teaching. I facilitate meditation groups and hypnotherapy sessions which gives individuals the tools they need to release anxiety, fear, aid relaxation and promote well-being.
I am a mum of 3 young boys, an ex-city lawyer and a passionate advocate of hypnobirthing. I truly believe in the connection between the mind and the body - we all have the ability to prepare our minds to be positive and relaxed and when we do that we are also preparing our bodies to be the same. I think knowledge empowers and I want to dispel the myths and mysteries around birth so that every woman can enjoy the most amazing thing she will ever do - bring a little human being into the world.
My husband and 2 teenage daughters have lived in the growing community of Cambourne for the last 17 years. I began training 13 years ago with the NCT to become a fully qualified antental and postnatal facilitator. I run courses in and around Cambridge weekly and have good links with the local hospital and am involved in the local Maternity voices committees.
Along side this, I have worked as a birth and postnatal doula for 10 years, supporting many families through pregnancy birth and their early parenting experiences; trained wtih BabyCalm and the school of Babywearing and have completed lots of online learning modules with the University of Warwick.
I am keen and excited to be running hypnobirthing sessions to offer parents a more comprehensive and postitive pregnancy and birth experience.
I am a hypnotherapist of 10 years and have now qualified as a Hypnobirthing teacher.
