Hypnobirthing Buckinghamshire - Teachers' Directory
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.
Hi, I'm a mum of two boys (aged 20 and 8), my youngest is a KGHypnobirthing baby. At the time I wanted to be a midwife and was about to go to university until I found out I was expecting. My life then took a different path. I became an emergency call handler for the police, I then retrained to be a certified hypnotherapist and an RTT Practitioner (Rapid Transformational Therapy) so that I could make a greater difference to people. I'm so excited to now also be a KGHypnobirthing teacher, empowering women to feel more in control, helping women release fear around giving birth so that thy have have the best possible outcome for themselves and for baby
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.
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).
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!
I teach hypnobirthing alongside pregnancy yoga, reflexology, giving classes in the Bucks / Berks area. I've been a midwife for 16 years and have a family of two, and I'd love to help you through the birthing process as well.

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.
I've always been passionate about my role as a midwife and am lucky to do a job that I love and enjoy, however since having my son I have realised my dream to also focus on antenatal education.
I run The Village Midwife antenatal/postnatal courses and offer 1-1 and group hypnobirthing sessions on top of this. As a midwife, I have seen the effect that birth education can have on a woman and her birth partner's experiences and aim to empower them to have the best birth possible, as well as enjoy the antenatal and postnatal periods!
I am also passionate about providing this level of care to women coming to parenthood through all of the different ways possible!
I am Ellie, a mother-of-2 in Buckinghamshire and a practising midwife.
