Hypnobirthing Buckinghamshire - Teachers' Directory
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.
It’s fair to say I’m completely obsessed by what happens in pregnancy and labour. It is a truly incredible event. Every birth is different. But I want to give as many people as possible the tools to make their experience positive.
Hi, my name is Amber. I decided to become a KGHypnobirthing teacher after giving birth to my first daughter Marley-Rose, at home in a birth pool. It was such an empowering experience and I loved every moment. I immediately knew it was something I’d love to experience again and I also knew that every expectant mother deserves to feel empowered and in control of their birth. Previously I have worked in retail and client facing roles and have always known that I love talking to and helping others. KGHypnobirthing feels like it was something I was destined to do. I look forward to meeting you and your birth partners and sharing your pregnancy journey with you.
I am a qualified teacher with over fifteen years’ experience across the 3-18 age range. This has been in mainstream schools and as a Social and Emotional Development therapist for students with special educational needs. I have a bachelor’s degree in Education (BEd Hons) from the University of Cambridge.
Additionally, my training in therapy has enabled me to work within a range of healthcare settings, including a hospice, a BUPA care home for the elderly and MIND, the mental health charity. I hold a Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling Studies.
I have travelled extensively with my husband and two teenage daughters, and lived and worked abroad, including for a counselling charity involved with supporting expatriates. Before embarking on a career in teaching, I worked as a private Nanny.
I enjoy meeting new clients, either at my Berkhamsted practice, online or in their own homes. I am calm, empathic and passionate about helping others’ find balance. To facilitate this, I am resourced by a varied career profile, containing a range of complementary and holistic therapy training and experience.
I am proud to be a registered KG Hypnobirthing practitioner (DipHB KGH), a premier training course accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.
I graduated with Distinction from the British School of Meditation (BSoM) where I am an accredited teacher. Additionally, I am trained as a Neuro-Linguistic Programme practitioner (NLP Prac).
To continue evolving my professional development and in order to support my personal wellbeing, I have also studied Reiki (to Practitioner Level 2) and Quantum Touch.
I hold an enhanced certificate with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
Hi, I'm Lucy,
I'm a mum of three with a passion for birth and babies. All three of my babies were KGHypnobirthing births (although different experiences). I think all women should be able to go into their birth with a good understanding of what is happening, what is likely to happen and with techniques at their disposal to ensure they have the most calm and positive experience possible. I am also currently a trainee Breastfeeding Counsellor with the ABM.
In my younger years I studied social anthropology (and archaeology) at Cambridge University, travelled and lived abroad - including in New York City, trained as a massage therapist,and spent many years as a Communications / PR professional. I am a big fan of chocolate, tea, murder mysteries, walking on the beach and Netflix.
HELLO, I’M JESS 👋
Mum of two, I’m proud to be a qualified KGH teacher, the only Hypnobirthing course to be accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.
I stumbled across hypnobirthing when searching online for more information about birth and labour, probably just like you’re doing right now!
It’s safe to say with everything in the media, and everything I had learned growing up, birth was going to be painful, most likely traumatic, and I was scared.
Then I found hypnobirthing, and it changed everything! My whole mindset switched from being completely terrified about birth, to actually looking forward to it! No, I wouldn’t have believed it either, but here I am, so passionate about hypnobirthing that I’ve trained to teach it. Becoming a parent is such a pivotal moment in our lives. We will always remember our midwives and birth experiences, so I feel really strongly that we should do all we can make it the best experience possible.
It’s really normal and sensible to be sceptical of things we don’t know about or understand, and honestly, the name ‘hypnobirthing’ almost put me off. It sounds a little bit hippyish, but I promise there’s no weird chanting in circles, no strange zen-like hypnotic states which make you feel out of control - it’s the exact opposite.
Hypnobirthing can be used in every kind of birth, and it will make you feel empowered, calm and confident, and help you have a positive birth experience.
I hope to see you in class soon!
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 in 2018 and my incredible birth experience 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! I switched 18 months ago from working on labour and postnatal wards to in the community where I now provide antenatal and postnatal care and attend homebirths.

I first discovered hypnobirthing in 2004 while pregnant with my first daughter. I was terrified of the prospect of a natural birth but went on to have a calm, pain free experience where I was in complete control. I have since had two fabulous home births using the hypnobirthing techniques.
Since 2005 I have helped many couples to birth confidently and calmly. I trained with Katharine Graves of KGH and now train trainers as well as running my parent courses.
Holding a BSc Psychology and Biology I recognise the importance of both psychology and physiology in the hypnobirthing training. The course educates and prepares the body and mind using well established biological knowledge about birth processes.
I spent ten years as a teacher giving me a catalogue of teaching methods to ensure you get the best from the hypnobirthing course.
Whether it is your first or fourth, each birth is a unique and emotional journey and I hope to help you to find the path that is right for you.
I have seen the difference that hypnobirthing makes in my own birthing experiences and of those that I have introduced to hypnobirthing. The KGH course I teach will give you the tools to have the positive, empowering, calm and comfortable birth that you want.
