Hypnobirthing Dorset - Teachers' Directory
In 2007, I gave birth to my daughter using HypnoBirthing following my own course with the inspirational Katharine Graves herself. It was my own life-changing, positive birth experience then which led me to change career direction and bring the benenfits of Hypnobirthing to Bournemouth.
In 2010, as well as passing my hypnotherapy diploma with distinction, I qualified to teach Hypnobirthing. I haven't looked back since then and love helping expectant parents on their journey to calm labour and birth for themselves and their babies.
I have been trained to be a hypnobirthing teacher by Katharine Graves. I have home educated my son and now he is off on his adventures, I thought it was time for me to have mine! I have been involved with AIMS (Assoc. for the Improvement in Maternity Services) for many years on the committee and as Publications Secretary. I have a good knowledge of the issues surrounding birth and decided to teach hypnobirthing to get closer to the mums. I am continually amazed at the power of hypnobirthing and love passing on the techniques and message to couples.
I'm Estelle an experienced Hypnobirthing practitioner of over 7 years standing and hypnotherapist of some 15 years., qualified and experienced in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Hypnofertility Therapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling, REIKI (master practitioner/teacher), Reflexology, Indian Head Massage and Childbirth Education.
My simple aim for those who take my course is that they have the best "birth experience" possible on the day, be it the first time or the 3rd time - each time is special!

The use of hypnobirthing in natural birthing is increasing as understanding about it becomes more widespread, as it promotes the use of hypnosis techniques to create a more peaceful, stress-free birth for mother and baby and we have more information about it on our website.
