Hi I offer a wide variety of services from Conception to birthing and beyond. I work as a Complementary therapist and Hypnotherapist at the Rosemount Centre in Aberdeen where I also hold my Hypnobirthing classes.

I am also an Affiliate for KGHypnobirthing Online Courses.

I am a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist and have also undergone Doula training with Red Tent Doulas. My own deliveries were very much in the clinical style 30 years ago even though I wanted a more holistic approach so Hypnobirthing is very much close to my heart.

I want mothers to feel in control of their deliveries and to have the best birth experience possible.

I am excited to be able to use my experience and knowledge of both hypnotherapy and the mind-body link to guide you through the KGHypnobirthing programme, ensuring you can use the skills taught to have the best birth possible for both you and your baby. 

In addition to my KGHypnobirthing diploma, I hold a diploma in Clinical and Advanced Hypnosis as well as a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma and I am a Licensed Master Practitioner of NLP®.

I am passionate about using my professional qualifications to allow you to understand how to work with your mind and your body to create a positive and uplifting birth experience for you, your baby and your partner.

A big hello and congratulations on your pregnancy! I have a passion for helping women to realise their potential. All mothers have a natural inbuilt ability to birth their babies and I am keen to empower you to unlock this inner strength. I see too many women in pregnancy and labour who are afraid of the birth that awaits them and it is wrong for something so natural to cause such stress and anxiety. I want women to be excited to meet their unborn baby and I know that giving you the information you need to make choices and prepare will do just that. I am blown away by the power the mind has over the body and I want to share this power with you to show that if you can think it, you can do it. Giving birth calmly and confidently is no different to any other activity you have encountered in life. Having become a parent myself and working as a midwife I can relate to the uncertainty of what lies ahead, but also draw on my experiences to show that it can be done and it is done daily around the world because our bodies were designed to work with us not against us.

Congratulations on your pregancy! My name is Rachel Boyland and as well as being a qualified hypnobirthing teacher, I am also a registered midwife. My aim is to provide you and your birth companion with all the tools you need to have an easier, more calm and positive birth experience.

The effects of hypnobirthing are wonderful and will empower you to relax and trust your body and your baby . The course teaches simple deep relaxation, massage and breathing techniques which allow for a better birth experience. Hypnobirthing also values the contribution of your birthing partner, giving them a role in helping you to bring your baby into the world in most gentle and loving way.

Feel free to drop me an email, look up my ‘Hypnobabies Glasgow‘ page on Facebook or call me if you would like more information or you would like to talk more.

Hi, I'm Andrea - mum to 2 boys, experienced Midwife, KGHypnobirthing Teacher, and midwifery educator.  I believe women and families should have access to accurate, evidence-based information to enable you to make informed choices during pregnancy, child birth and parenthood.  I used hypnobirthing techniques for the births of both my sons - one born in hospital and the other at home and as a midwife I have supported many women during pregnancy, labour and birth, who have benefitted from Hypnobirthing.  I understand the myriad choices and often conflicting information women and families face and can support you to navigate through these choices and teach you KGHypnobirthing techniques to help you release any doubts or fears and achieve a positive, confident birth.

Signed.

Hi I'm Lynsey, mum to a very energetic happy 3 year old and the founder of the Empowered Parent.

After learning and applying Hypnobirthing in my own labour with my son Zander, I wanted to ensure every mother, parent and birth partner understand the virtues of how powerful, yet simplistic hypnobirthing really is. 

I am a proud KGHypnobirthing trained teacher, whose teachings have been featured in The Sunday Times, The Guardian and Women's hour. 

My aim is to inform and educate parents and birth partners to allow them to feel empowered, whatever form birth takes.

I received my Midwifery degree with distinction in 2011 from The Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen before moving to London to work in a large maternity unit. The majority of my time was spent within the Midwifery Led Birthing Unit facilitating mostly waterbirths before caseloading my own antenatal women in the community. Fed up of city life I then relocated to village life, firstly in Surrey and now settled in Nairn, in the beautiful Scottish Highlands. With the move came a new job in in the surrounding community providing antenatal care, postnatal care, homebirths and antenatal education sessions to the women in my care. I qualified as a KG Hypnobirthing instructor in early 2017 after witnessing women using the techniques in labour. I was astounded at how calm, relaxed and confident they were for their own birth and it inspired me to try and provide these tools to the other women in my care going forward. I have also since used these skills for the births of my two children, Euan and Iris. I found that these skills were key to me achieving  relaxed and positive birth experiences, even with the need for a medical induction with my first birth.

In my spare time you can either find me on long walks with the kids accompanied by my busy Border Collie Pippa or tending to my chickens in the garden. I can't wait to meet you all and support you on your very special journey.

In 2017 I made the decision to work for myself and start my beauty and holistic therapy business Brindle Beauty.  Alongside working for myself I also work for the NHS as a medical lab assistant.  I regularly work with expectant mothers as I offer pregnancy massage.  In September I will start my midwifery training at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen so I wanted to train as a KGHypnobirthing teacher to be able to empower women, give them confidence and strategies to  maintain relaxation through birth

I am Victoria, the founder of Hypnobirthing Midlothian. I am also a Primary School teacher and Mum of two Hypnobirthed babies. 


It was because of my wonderful and empowering birthing experiences that I decided to train to become a KG Hypnobirthing Instructor.


I am passionate about women and birth. I believe that with the right information and techniques any woman (no matter how anxious she is) can have a positive birthing journey.

Before taking a Hypnobirthing course I was like most mothers-to-be, my knowledge of birthing consisted of what I had seen in the movies and other women's stories (both of which were not particularly positive or realistic images of birth). 


During the course I felt like I was seeing true birth for the first time. My mind-set was transformed. I felt so confident in my body and so knowledgeable about what birth physically (and mentally) entailed. 


After my first birth I raved about Hypnobirthing to every pregnant (and non pregnant!) woman I saw. I wanted to let women into the “secret” that birth doesn’t have to be scary. It truly is the best experience of your life. My husband suggested I channel my enthusiasm and train to be a Hypnobirthing teacher and I’ve not looked back since.

I believe that I have a unique insight into Hypnobirthing as I am proof that the method works.


I would be humbled to be part of your birthing journey. Let me unlock the “secret” to a more informed and empowered birth. You won’t believe how easy it is to have a birth without fear.

My name is Faye Thornhill and I am a qualified Katherine Graves hypnobirthing practitioner. I practiced hypnobirthing for the births of both of my children and was astounded at the peaceful and powerful way my labours unfolded. Since that point I have had a deep respect and love for childbirth and believe that fear and the over medicalisation of birth are preventing woman experiencing the pure joy of birth. I see hypnobirthing as a gift and believe completely in its ability to help you release fear, be and stay calm before and during the birth of your baby and also to enable you to make informed decisions you are comfortable and most importantly happy with. Please just drop me a line if you would like to discuss the course or find out more.

I started my training to become a midwife in 2007 and very quickly found my passion was for promoting and enabling normality during pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. I fully believe that by empowering pregnant people to trust in themselves and their bodies’ capabilities, they can achieve a fulfilling birth experience that is more likely to follow a natural course without the need for medical intervention.

I believe that through the use of antenatal education, preparation and empowerment, pregnant people can lose their fear of childbirth and enjoy this most powerful and extraordinary time in their lives. I have supported many pregnant people to achieve a positive pregnancy and birth experience and look forward to sharing this special time with you.

My name is Kelly, a mum of 2 obsessed with all things pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Having had 2 very different birth experiences myself, I can’t wait to use my knowledge and experience to support other women, guiding them towards what is their ideal positive birth. My relaxed Hypnobirthing sessions offer you a friendly face to turn to throuhghout your pregnancy and early labour. I will be there to ensure you feel equipped for birth, can answer any of your questions and offer impartial and level-headed support.

I’ve experienced both kinds of birth myself, so when I tell you Hypnobirthing works, it’s because I KNOW it works.

My first birth took me by surprise, with my waters breaking at 35 weeks before I had even finished packing my hospital bags. I had done literally no preparation for birth, going in to it with the mindset of “I’ll just wing it!” and I had no idea what to expect. On arriving at the hospital, I very quickly began to feel out of control of the situation. My choices weren’t explained, I had no understanding of what my body was doing, and I had no tools to assist my body and help keep me calm. When my little girl arrived I was so pleased to have her safely with me but I also felt shell-shocked and uncomfortable with the way my care was handled. Those feelings persisted with me, and made my transition into motherhood more challenging.

So when I fell pregnant the second time around, I instantly knew I had to ensure things were different this time. I poured all the time I had in to learning about birth and was recommended to try Hypnobirthing. The Hypnobirthing course just made it all click for me. It made so much sense, I could clearly see where things had went wrong the first time round and what I wanted to do this time. The knowledge I was gaining was invaluable and I was shocked that I wasn’t taught any of it in the antenatal classes I had been to. I went on to have the most incredible water birth, delivering my son calmly, peacefully and proudly. I felt so powerful, strong and happy. It was a complete 180 compared to my previous birth and I literally wanted to shout from the rooftops about how effective Hypnobirthing had been for me! That wouldn’t have quite been as effective as becoming a Hypnobirthing Teacher though… so here I am!
