I originally trained and worked as a secondary school teacher. However, after having my daughter in 2009, I realised how important it is that families have access to heart based support in the antenatal and postnatal periods. I therefore trained as a Craniosacral Therapist who specialises in working with babies, and now work doing craniosacral therapy and teaching hypnobirthing, as well as co-running Alton Baby Centre where we offer a range of pregnancy and baby classes.

I'm Jacqui. I have two lovely children. My background was in local radio until I had my children. I then retrained and became a British Wheel of Yoga teacher specialising in Pregnancy and Post Natal therapy. After successfully teaching pregnancy yoga for 12 years , Hypnobirthing was a natural addition to the therapy I offer. I am passionate about gentle positive birthing being fabulous for mum and baby.

I am Steff McQueen, a mum, KG hypnobirthing practioner and currently training to be a midwife at the University of Surrey! I developed an interest in hypnobirthing in 2010 after the birth of my daughter, Evie. I didn't know anything about hypnobirthing at the time, however had a wonderful midwife who enabled me to believe in my body and my mind during birth and I have never felt so confident in myself (something I was not expecting at that moment in time!)
I am extremely passionate about reducing the negativity and fear surrounding birth and about educating women of their choices, empowering them during pregnancy and birth.
It would be a pleasure to teach you during your journey.

Hello, I'm Emma, a Mother of one and a proud KG Hypnobirthing teacher. My journey with Hypnobirthing started when I was pregnant with my daughter. My husband and I attended classes and couldn't praise Hypnobirthing highly enough for helping us to bring our baby into the world in such a calm, happy and comfortable way. Her birth truly was my light bulb moment. . . I knew from then on that I wanted to help other women to enjoy such an empowering, magical experience and to enter into their last weeks of pregnancy and birth with excitement and confidence in what their bodies are designed so perfectly to do.

I have worked in Psychology for 6 years and now as a Hypnobirth practitioner. I am passionate about women's and men's relationship with birth. I have a degree in Psychology and a Postgraduate diploma in Counselling Psychology. I am fully qualified Hypnobirth practitioner, trained by KG Hypnobirthing Association. I am currently assisting in the Maternal and Child Mental Health research group at City University.
I have experienced two very different births, which has given me an understanding of how unique each birth experience is. I feel it is imperative to prepare women and men psychologically for the birth of their baby, in order to provide the most empowering and positive birth experience. I aim to utilise the skills I have developed in my psychological training combined with the KG hypnobirthing tools to provide an easier, comfortable and more confident birth.

I fell in love with midwifery from a very young age, my fascination began whilst observing my mum through the pregnancies of my siblings. This then led me onto my journey to qualify as a Midwife at the University College London Hospital (UCLH). During my amazing adventure as a midwife I have had the privilege to work on the birth centre and in the community setting, supporting and assisting families in over a hundred births, including both hypnobirthing and water births. Being there to witness and support couples in meeting their little one(s) is by far the most moving moments that I have been extremely blessed to be a part of. Through these experience's I became extremely passionate about the benefits of hypnobirthing, this brought me to train to become a teacher with the inspirational Katharine Graves.
This year myself and my husband welcomed our first child into the world, a little boy. We were so excited to be able to use hypnobirthing during our own birth after years of supporting others. I found it to be one of the most breathtaking experiences as a couple and was such an empowering way to meet our son.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist registered with the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH). I originally trained in the Mongan Method of hypnobirthing with the HypnoBirthing Institute and subsequently trained with Katharine Graves.I also offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing), which can be an effective therapy for any mum-to-be who has previously experienced a particularly challenging birth.
I live in a village just outside Alton, Hampshire with my husband and two teenage daughters. I had my first baby when I was 38 and my second when I was 40. Although this was in the pre-hypnobirthing era, I was fortunate to enjoy a natural childbirth experience with both. I offer one-to-one hypnobirthing sessions tailored to your own specific requirements.
My aim: To empower you to feel calm, confident and in control, so that your birthing experience meets your positive expectations

Running a busy home with two children, my partner and work as a Doula and Hypnobirthing Instructor, it can sometimes be tricky to balance life. I often find in these moments that I make myself some me time and put to use the fantastic hypnobirthing techniques that I was taught by Katharine. I very quickly remember how to slow everything down and gain perspective. Often I find my mind wandering to the women I am working with and I feel ….energised ….inspired ….in awe ….full of expectation ….and confident in our and their ability......then its game on!
