Hypnobirthing Dorset - Teachers' Directory
Hi , My name is Corinne, I'm a trained hypnotherapist specialised in hypnobirthing.
I discovered hypnobirthing 17 years ago when I was pregnant with my first daughter. My husband and I attended a week end course in London. When we left, all our fears about birth had been dispelled and we felt both confident, calm and empowere. I couldn't wait for my labour to start to put into practice all the tools that I had learnt.
My daughter was born 3 weeks later in two hours at our local birth centre, in a birthing pool. I felt no need of using any pain relief.
I went on to have 3 more children who were all born at home and for all of them I used hypnobirthing.
I'm passionate about teaching the KGH method. It will enable you to make informed choices when it come to the birth of your child.
KGH prepares you for all the scenarios of birth. Feeling calm, empowered, and in control, being able to make informed choices will makes all the difference in your experience of birth.
KGH is a complete antenatal education which will provide you with all the informations that you need about childbirth. I'll take on a journey during which you'll discover how the body is perfectly designed to give birth.
I'll give you some tools such as breathing exercises, relaxation and positive visualisations to prepare your body and your mind to give birth.
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.
My name is Sophie Annett and I have been a practising massage and holistic therapist for 13 years. I trained to become a certified Infant Massage Instructor in 2013 giving me a chance to lead many courses in this wonderful, ancient process. After using KGHypnobirthing with the home-birth of my son, I became increasingly amazed and awe-inspired by its immense power and simplicity. I knew it was a tool that I wanted to share with as many expectant mothers and their partners as possible and feel incredibly privileged to now teach it. I am easily accessible, teaching both from my home in Lyme Regis or from your home and can travel between Dorchester and Exeter easily.

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!
