Hypnobirthing Buckinghamshire - Teachers' Directory
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.
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, 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.
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.
