Hypnobirthing London - Teachers' Directory
My name is Shirley and I live in Fernhurst in the border of the three counties West Sussex, Surrey & Hampshire. We have three daughters. Two of these were hypnobirths. My third birth was at home and the most amazing experience I have ever had. I realised the importance of understanding the birth process and how to work with your body will enable you to have a positive birth experience.
Birth and children are my world! I also run world music and movement classes for babies and toddlers called Yo Baby.
I run a local Positive Birth Movement Group, a local Home Birth Support group where we lend pools for a donation, I am a Reiki Master and currently training in Indian Head Massage and as a ABM Breastfeeing Counsellor.
I am so passionate about spreading the Hypnobirth word, giving birth is a life changing experience. By practicing Hypnobirthing you are also learning new skills for life that you continue to use after your baby is born.

My name is Lydia. I am a mum of two and a registered KGHypnobirthing practitioner (KGHypnobirthing the UK's leading provider). The KGHypnobirthing teaching diploma is fully accredited by the Royal College of Midwives, which is a testament to the highest standard of training. I am also a registered member of the Hypnobirthing Association.
I have first hand experience of Hypnobirthing and with two contrasting labour experiences, I understand the difference Hypnobirthing makes. My approach to teaching will empower you to have complete confidence in your own understanding and how Hypnobirthing can work for you.

Hi there, my name is Lisa and I am a KG Hypnobirthing teacher in Epping and East London. My background is in training, development and coaching, which has really supported me in becoming a hypnobirthing trainer.
I first came across hypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my daughter, I had felt very anxious about understanding my antenatal care and the birth of my first child. KGH supported me greatly as a comprehensive antenatal course, and I now love being able to supporting expectant parents to have the best birth experience for them.
I cover Epping (and surrounding areas), Theydon Bois, Debden, Loughton, Buckhurst Hill and Woodford.
I’m AJ, a KGHypnobirthing teacher, midwife, Level 2 personal trainer and all-round supporter of women! I am passionate about women’s choice and health and have been empowered through training as a KGHypnobirthing teacher to provide simple yet effective tools to help women to thrive during pregnancy and beyond. I work full time as a midwife in the NHS at a busy, central London hospital so the scope of my knowledge and experience in pregnancy, birth and beyond gives me incredible insight into what individuals can achieve as their woman-born right.

My name is Lesley and I live in Haslemere, Surrey with my husband Jeremy and some of my 5 children. The children range in age from 27 down to 17 (4 boys and 1 girl). The whole period of my childrens' childhoods has flown past and I would not have missed any of it. ( Very fortunately I have not had to). Their births were varied and apart from a caesarean section for my first son who was breech, then a forceps delivery for my second child as he was slightly stuck, the other 3 children were born very easily and with no other birthing difficulties. Having watched them grow up (they are all adults now) they are now an absolute delight to me and I enjoy their company as fellow adults as much as I do any of my best friends.
Long before I had my own children I wanted to work in the neonatal world but it wasn't until 2008, when my children were old enough, that I had time to do an Access to Nursing & Health Professions course at Guildford College, and my aim back then was to become a midwife. I heard about Doulas for the first time just after I finished my course in 2010. After some research I understood that their ethos sat very comfortably with my own belief that childbirth is a natural process which, given the right tools and emotional suport, most women will come through with beautiful memories of a very primitive and wonderful experience to treasure all their lives. As a recently qualified KG Hypnobirthing teacher I now have the perfect tools to teach pregnant couples how to have the best (and sometimes pain-free) birth possible for them. The sense of achievement for a woman is extraordinary and this should be available to all women; so it is with this belief that I feel that to be able in this part of a couple's journey into parenthood is an amazing privilege. I can offer you support in the form of practical help, emotional support (you may need both in varying amounts) and hypnobirthing techniques that can be also be used as coping skills in other potentially stressful situations throughout life. I also offer non-judgemental advice during the build-up to the birth and in the immediate post-natal period, as you adjust to your beautiful new addition.
Hi! My name is Kylie. I am a KGHypnobirthing practitioner.
In the past I worked as a home birth doula and pregnancy massage therapist for several years. I am now a registered midwife in a busy London hospital.
Over the years I have witnessed many women sucessfully apply Hypnobirthing to remain in control throughout labour and achieve a calm birth.
I am passionate about learning and sharing strategies and tools that can help you to be empowered through your pregnancy, labour and birth. Strategies and techniques that can support the progression of normal labour and birth.
I have always approach life in an optimistic manner, learning from every single experience and continuous re-inventing myself.
My background is very eclectic. Engineer by training (big science background) with an MBA but deeply caring about people, I have developed some strong healing abilities. Biology and medicine have always been a passion of mine. Reason why I did start my holistic practice aside my international corporate career. I am now working 100% on my wellness practice.
Aside from my personal healing abilities which developed naturally, I am an official KGHypnobirthing and mindfulness teacher, Sophrology therapist (aggregate deep relaxation practices with visualization. you can read more on my website about this practice), Reiki and energy teacher.
Sophrology and Healing can support pregnancy in complement to hypnobirthing in a lot of different ways :
* helping with pregnancy symptoms to improve the quality of daily life
* work at a deeper level on stress and anxiety reduction
* heal past trauma (sexual or prior traumatic birth)
* postpartum depression
Do reach out if you are curious and/or have questions, I would be more than happy to have a chat.
Hypnobirthing produces effective, more stress-free childbirth to the mother and baby through the use of hypnosis methods to create relaxation. Our teachers are here to teach and support you, so that you can achieve this relaxation during your birthing for you and your baby.
We have teachers throughout Central London and Greater London, which means that wherever you live in the capital, you should be able to find someone who can support you and teach you hypnobirthing techniques for when you give birth. Each of them has been trained and assessed by us, so you can rest assured that whoever you choose, you will receive the best levels of support possible. If you wish to join a course with Katharine Graves she teaches once a month at St Thomas' Hospital. You can find out more details about her London Hypnobirthing classes here.
Our Core Principles
Each of our teachers also adheres to our code of practice, embracing ethics and best practice when teaching natural childbirth techniques, to enhance birthing for mothers. We also ask them to promote hypnobirthing and natural childbirth, if they do not do so already, to help make it a more widespread choice for a mother and to become more widely understood, generally.
