Hypnobirthing Berkshire - Teachers' Directory
Hi, my name is Louise and I live in Sandhurst with two of my three boys and our dog, Harry. take a look at my website http://www.thepeacefuldoula.co.uk I gained my Hypnobirthing Diploma at KGHypnobirthing, “The Gold Standard” of the hypnobirthing world. A programme designed by the guru of Hypnobirthing, Katherine Graves and delivered by the aspiring Nancy Keen. I completed my Doula Training underneath the guidance and instruction of the very experienced Kicki Hansard at the BirthBliss Academy..
My name is Joanna Williamson and I am a mother of three, midwife and KG Hypnobirthing teacher. I used KG Hypnobirthing for the birth of my son last year and my incredible birth experience has made me keener than ever to share with others what I learnt on the course. I love teaching and supporting women and their partners on their journey to parenthood or indeed to a growing family! Having largely worked on labour and postnatal wards, I look forward to a change and becoming a community and home birth midwife.
I have been working in my own practice for many years as a Reflexologist specialising in all aspects of the fertility journey. I have close links with my Acupunturist husband and we have worked with many couples and individuals. I love hearing my clients tell me about their birthing experiences and I am so proud to be part of their moment. I have had four children and my births were the best experiences of my life, this is why I am a KGHypnobirthing teacher. My practice is based at home where clients can relax in a welcoming and calm enviroment. Do give me a ring to ask any further questions you might have.
My name is Charlotte and I am a KG Hypnobirthing Teacher and Doula based in West Berkshire. I am also Mum to 3 wonderful children, wife to 1 wonderful husband and a complete & utter birth nerd! When I had my first baby 13 years ago my passion for pregnancy and birth was born and I knew that somehow I had to do something to support & empower women to go on to have the positive births that they deserved.. just like I had. My second birth was equally as calm, relaxed and magical (she was born in her sac!) and I was even more determined to change the negative mindset that so many pregnant women find themselves in - that birth is a medical event & is going to hurt! I then trained to be a Doula in 2010 and was privileged to support many women through their pregnancies, births and early days of motherhood. Baby number 3 wasn't far behind and again my positive mindset, confidence, calm & relaxed attitude and understanding of the task ahead made for another quick, peaceful birth!! Being Mummy then took over my life and I had to put Doula duties on hold until my children became more independent... and then I discovered Hypnobirthing! I couldn't believe it, it was everything I had believed in and had practised with my own babies with scientific evidence to back it up and even better.. I could become a teacher! I didn't really have to consider it and soon trained to become a KG Hypnobirthing Teacher which is honestly the most wonderful "job" and I feel so lucky to be able to make a difference to pregnant women, their birth partners and their whole experience of pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Hi my name is Abi.
Congratulations on your pregnancy and for taking the first step to looking into hypnobirthing and what's offered out there. I have two sons 12 and 6, it was their labours which ignited my passion to teach women about birth preparation and tool them with all the knowledge they need in order to achieve the birth that is right for both mother and child. I also feel very passionate about helping Dad/birth partner to feel as involved as they can and to tool them so that they don't feel like a spare part.
It doesn't matter whether this is your 1st pregnancy or your 5th - hypnobirthing is for everyone and each time that I run the course I learn something new. I have taught first time mums who haven't a clue what to expect, second and third time mums who want to have a birth that they feel in control of, mums who are in the medical profession and twin mums. I have had women who when they first came to me had been told how they would labour their babies but by the end were working with their care team to have the birth that was right for them and their babies. A lot of dads or birth partners don't want to initially attend but all who have attended the first session have fallen in love with the contents and have become so passionate about hypnobirthing that they can't help but tell anyone who will listen about what they are learning.
As a KGH teacher I will support you from the moment that you book onto my course until after baby is born. I also offer postnatal support.

On my work as a doula, having accompanied women and couples in very varied settings and reflecting back on some of these experiences, I learnt how hypnobirthing can make a difference and decided to train as a hypnobirthing teacher.
Currently I co-facilitate the Reading Positive Birth group as I am a firm believer on the importance of bringing positivity around childbirth.
Please get in touch if you are interested in hypnobirthing and antenatal preparation :)
I completed a BSc(Hons) in Applied Ecology and Conservation, followed by an MSc in Species Identification and Survey Skills. I worked as an Environmental Specialist for a few years, then I fell pregnant.
Constantly thinking what if something happens. Always reminded of the things that could go wrong, all aimed at preventing them from happening, but in my head I was thinking what if. Absolutely terrified of what could happen if I got anything wrong. If I wasn’t good enough.
Hypnobirthing gave me the strength I needed to get through my pregnancy and have a birth experience I am proud of. Because of that, I now teach Hypnobirthing to women who are experiencing the same thing 💖
I also get the absolute joy of being there for the birth of some of my clients as a Birth Doula. I am well and truly addicted to seeing mothers thrive 🥰
Hypnobirthing is an effective natural childbirthing method which brings a calmness to mother and baby through the use of hypnosis techniques for relaxation.
Each of our practitioners has been trained in one or more of the recognised hypnobirthing teaching methods and has then been through our assessment process to ensure they have the appropriate experience and skill we require. This ensures that the training they provide to expectant mothers is of a very high quality.
All of our hypnobirthing practitioners also subscribe to our code of ethics which includes delivering only good quality training and promoting good practice at all times. They are also firm advocates of natural birthing techniques, keen to see it taken up more widely as the delivery method of choice by mothers.
We have teachers covering the following areas including Bracknell, Crowthorne, Sandhurst, Reading, Slough, Newbury, Thatcham, Hungerford, Calcot, Windsor, Maidenhead, Ascot, Eton, Wokingham, Woodley, Earlery, Winnersh and the surrounding areas.
