Hypnobirthing West - Teachers' Directory
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.
Hi, I am Karen.
I come from Scotland where I began practicing as a midwife 33 year ago. I am passionate about preparing women for a positive birth experience and supporting them through the post-natal period. For this reason, I teach hypnobirthing and also offer a range of complementary therapies.

As someone who had a difficult first birth experience I was eager to try anything I could to turn the odds in my favour the second time around.
KG Hypnobirthing was introduced to me by a fellow mum who swore by it so I enrolled in a 1 to 1 course. The wealth of knowledge, the practical tools and the confidence that were taught to me made all the difference as I navigated through pregnancy confidently and ready. Birthing my baby was the most empowering and comfortable experience I could have ever wished for. And as I cuddled with my daughter on her birth day, there was no doubt in my mind of what I wanted to do next: becoming a KG Hypnobirthing teacher!
My goal is to help you feel confident, informed and ready for the event of birth so that you are fully equipped for a positive experience no matter your circumstances. My personal experience in knowing how KG Hypnobirthing can positively impact the birth of your baby, as opposed to without, deepens my determination in ensuring you get the most of my teaching.
I am a mother, shamanic therapist and doula. KG Hypnobirthing was life changing for me. It was pivotal in me having a positive and empowered birth and gave me and my partner the tools to advocate for my needs throughout the transformative rites of passage that is birth. I am passionate about sharing hypnobirthing to give mother and baby the powerful birth they deserve. I teach hypnobirthing one-to-one or in groups online or in London.
My interest in hypnobirthing began while caring for someone on the labour ward in the hospital where I work as a midwife.
Although their birth preferences had changed due to a complication and the labour ward hadn't been their ideal choice of place to birth, they continued to use these incredible techniques for calm and focus throughout labour. Many of the team didn't believe they were in labour due to the controlled nature of how they handled their journey. I was continuously impressed and in awe of the power this person had over their body in a moment where many feel out of control. They were well informed and advocated their choices confidently. I thought it was amazing!
My teacher training has only improved this perception of hypnobirthing, nurturing my desire to help birthing people through their pregnancy experiences by giving evidence based information and techniques for an optimal birth for them. Whether that is a planned surgical birth or a physiological vaginal birth or anything in between, hypnobirthing can be valuable to everyone with the information and connection of the mind to the body that the courses provide.
I am a qualified KG Hypnobirthing teacher. I used hypnobirthing for myself when giving birth to my daughter (3), which was an incredibly positive experience.
I grew up in Slovenia, where the approach to birthing does not involve as much choice as in the UK. This background gives me a good understanding of mothers with a lack of confidence in themselves or being afraid of labour.
Practicing yoga for over 10 years, I gained a valuable understanding of the capabilities of our bodies and the way our muscular and nervous systems work in correlation with our breathing.
You've done your pregnancy yoga, you've bought the pram and you're feeling pretty good. But you can't seem to ignore that voice deep down saying 'but what if I can't do this? What if things don't go as planned?'
You're a smart lady and you know the whole 'watermelon through a lemon' thing is total BS...but still you wonder...how DOES it actually all work?? Is a baby really gonna come out of there?
Let me support you in moving from a place of doubt and insecurity to a place of confidence and calm.

Hi I’m Laura. I’m a pregnancy yoga and hypnobirthing teacher based in Wandsworth. I live in Southfields with my partner Jason and two year old son Mason.
I was introduced to hypnobirthing through teaching yoga and was astounded at the positive impact it could have on one's experience. I decided I would explore this further and came across KGHypnobirthing, which was by far the best 'all rounder'.
As well as providing you with tools and techniques to help you experience a more, calm, comfortable and confident birth, it is more informative and educational that any antenatal course I had experienced. It is a joy to be able to share this with others.
Each course is tailored to meet your own individual needs and is taught in a relaxed and supportive environment.
I am a mother, a primary school teacher and a passionate believer in the power of Hypnobirthing. I don't see Hypnobirthing as some sort of strange birth tool, rather a complete antenatal education that goes far beyond what you might expect. We live in a world where birth is presented in a negative way. It does not have to be like this and if you can give yourself some time to prepare and relax in the lead up to birth, and understand the amazing systems at play, you will have a much more empowering experience. I am a compassionate, empathetic, and approachable person and I simmply want to help families have wonderful birth experiences! That is why I trained to teach and if you let me, I would love to help you.
I have worked with children and families for most of my adult life and have been a hypnotherapist, psychosensory therapist and a master trainer for the past 7 years.
I do a great deal of work training school and children’s facilities staff as well as parents.
The work I do with parents ranges from those trying to become pregnant, being pregnant, giving birth to bringing up their children. It’s my passion and my whole life has been about finding out more about what makes us happy, healthy humans.
My husband and I have 3 daughters and 2 sons between us and we currently have 8 grandchildren.
