Hypnobirthing West - Teachers' Directory
I am a mother of two beautiful children and first discovered KGHypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my first. I was working in London as a management consultant and decided to book the course as my husband's colleagues had been recommending it. Both myself and my husband were initially sceptical, however the evidence, logic and scientific information provided made so much sense to my analytical brain. Two amazing home births followed and the true power of KGHypnobirthing was clear. Within minutes of giving birth for the first time, holding my son on my chest, I looked at my husband and said, 'that was amazing, lets do it again!'. From that moment my passion for KGHypnobirthing grew and I decided I wanted to share this amazing program with others.
I trained with Katherine Graves’ Royal College of Midwives accredited teacher training course and can't wait to share the amazing journey that is KGH.

My love of hypnobirthing began when I used these techniques to birth my daughter. I found it to be a truly magical experience and overwhelmingly empowering. I felt in control, fearless and learnt how to tap into and follow my true instincts. The hypnobirthing techniques helped to make me calm, relaxed and taught me how to stay in the zone for a focused and controlled birth. I was so impressed by what I was able to achieve by working on the power of the mind alone, that I decided to train in KG Hypnobirthing; allowing me to empower other women and their partners.
After the birth of my daughter, Vega; I discovered baby massage and baby yoga. These techniques helped me with the bonding process, my confidence as a mother grew and I got to share experiences with other new mums.
Hello, I'm Silvana, a mum of two and a KGHypnobirthing teacher, as well as a qualified Hypnotherapist (I have an interest in the connection between mind and body) . My background is in Counselling and Therapeutic Play, and I worked for over 12 years supporting school children and their families in my local community in SW London, so providing emotional support and encouraging people to feel empowered, positive and confident feels really natural to me.
The course I did to become a KGHypnobirthing teacher was fantastic and a revelation into how to apply these skills at another crucial stage of life and development, in the context of labour and birth. Your wellbeing is my priority and I would feel privileged to accompany you for a while on your amazing journey.
My focus and passion is supporting women to have a joyful, empowered birth, whatever the kind of birth they choose.
I have been teaching pregnancy/postnatal yoga and childbirth education since 1991 and my classes reflect the wealth of experience I have, providing practical advice and encouragement to women throughout their pregnancies and as new mothers.
As well as teaching KG Hypnobirthing I am a qualified Yoga and Active Birth teacher and am registered with YogaBirth, the Active Birth Centre, Birthlight and the British Wheel of Yoga. I have completed the Unicef Breastfeeding Management training and I hold Diplomas in Remedial Massage and Source Breathwork. I am the mother of two boys, both born at home in water while using hypnotherapy, affirmations and relaxation techniques. I have a keen interest in complementary medicine and nutrition, particularly where it is relevant to pregnancy and labour.
I currently teach KGHypnobirthing, Yoga for Pregnancy, Birth Preparation and Post-Natal classes near Queen’s Park/Kensal Rise, close to NW6 and NW10 where I provide holistic support to women during the childbearing year. Private classes are also available.
I came to hypnobirthing quite by chance as an anxious mum-to-be and it completely transformed my experience of pregnancy, birth and motherhood. I am now passionate about sharing my experience and knowledge with other mums-to-be and families to empower them to have a similar fantastic, calm and positive experience.
I have taught over 50 couples and my passion for empowering women in pregnancy, birth and motherhood only continues to grow.
