Hypnobirthing North - Teachers' Directory
I have worked as an NHS occupational therapist for 38 years in medical, surgical and mental health specialities. I have many years of experience in teaching Pilates and fitness and I am also qualified in hypnotherapy which I have used to help people overcome anxiety problems and addictions such as smoking. I also specialise in helping people improve many other aspects of wellbeing, including sleep quality, physical activity and a unique approach to quitting smoking. I have two children - now grown up but I remember when they were born like it was yesterday! As a KGhypnobirthing teacher, I would love to help you learn the skills you need to have a relaxed, safe and inspirational birth experience.
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.

A mum to a lovely little girl-eager to spread the word on Hypnobirthing.
My hypnobirthing story started over two years ago when I was pregnant with my first baby. Until this point in my life all I had heard was that childbirth was painful, dangerous, and a risky business. I was convinced that being pregnant and giving birth was one of the few miracles in life that we get to experience, so why shouldn’t it be experienced positively?
From my academic background in Social Anthropology I believed that our reality was socially constructed. If we are told over the years and through mass media that childbirth is painful then we will believe and perpetuate this reality. So with a little help from Google I came across some fantastically positive birth stories. It was so refreshing. The one thing they all had in common was Hypnobirthing. So at my next appointment I asked my midwife about it and to my surprise she was very supportive and said my hospital offered a KGHypnobirthing course. I looked no further and signed up immediately.
My husband and I proceeded to practice and then use hypnobirthing successfully for the birth of our son almost two years ago. Since his gentle and calm entrance into this world we became strong advocates for hypnobirthing. However, reactions to our positive birth story were not quite what we expected. Many of our friends and family found it odd that we could speak so positively about something that is traditionally presented more negatively. Some dismissed us as soon as they heard ‘hypno’ thinking we were trying out some sort of new fad, not knowing how much scientific and physiological grounding there is in hypnobirthing. These reactions spurred me on to wanting to change the rhetoric around birth and take a more active role.
I since trained as a hypnobirthing teacher with Katharine Graves, the only hypnobirthing course accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. I am now a qualified KGHypnobirthing teacher and I'm ready to spread the message.
I hope that through teaching and supporting other women and their partners that we can change the rhetoric around birth together. We can start looking forward to our birth experiences and begin parenthood positively.
My name is Sara and I'm a doula, hypnobirthing and yoga teacher based in North London. Having had a traumatic birth experience with my first baby, I became passionate about the prospect of empowering women to have a positive birth by offering emotional and practical support during pregnancy, birth and the early days of motherhood.
I am a registered midwife with over 31 years’ experience in midwifery. I worked for almost 15 years at a North London NHS Trust. I have always been passionate about normality and I was instrumental in setting up the midwife led unit at the North London Trust. Working in partnership with women and their families is key to maternity services and providing good care. I became involved in the Maternity Voice Partnership in my role as a Professional Midwifery Advocate.
Whilst KG Hypnobirthing may not guarantee a natural birth it will empower you and your partner/family to make informed decisions about place of birth, your care and your birth. KG Hypnobirthing course will help prepare you for a positive birth experience and beyond birth. I am pleased to offer 1 to 1 courses and group courses
My passion is holistic therapies and I am also a mindfulness instructor, a reiki therapist, spiritual healer and I am an expert in professional supervision.
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.
