Hypnobirthing Surrey - Teachers' Directory
I am a Registered Nurse trained in Aberdeen in 1979. I have loved my nursing career and all the opportunities it has provided. I have lived all over the world and I have been fortunate enough to use my nursing qualification to work in lots of interesting different areas, for example, setting up a health screening programme for local Indonesian Mothers to promoting women’s health in Dubai.
I have three children. Born in 1988, 1991, and 1994. My first was a long drawn out affair which ended in a c-section. The other two were completely different. I even enjoyed them, I was calmer and better prepared, I believed in my ability to birth.
I became a Doula in Dubai with Nurturing Birth in 2009. It was wonderful and fascinating to be part of the birth process and to give support to couples entering parenthood.
I came across hypnobirthing as a doula. I was lucky enough to support a Mum throughout her birth while she used hypnobirthing. It was such a beautiful, calm and empowering experience for her, her partner and her baby, that I decided to become a hypnobirthing teacher. I have since seen many babies born this way and feel so passionately about spreading the word.
I looked into doing my hypnobirth training with various schools, ie Natal or Marie Mongan but decided Katharine Graves was so much more relevant and would be better based here in the UK. I have loved the course, the support and have met so many really inspirational people through doing the training.

Hello, congratulations on your pregnancy!
I have taught hundreds of women ‘how to’ use their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier, more comfortable birth.
My journey began back in 2008 when I started teaching pregnancy yoga in the heart of London. The class was so popular and the mums-to-be seemed so stressed I decided to add some hypnobirthing techniques. I was so impressed with the results this naturally led me to offering couples the full hypnobirthing course.
Today I enjoy running classes and courses in London Waterloo and South Croydon.
If you are looking to enjoy your pregnancy and prepare for a calm and confident birth – however it shows up – Joyful Body Birth is for you.
I look forward to welcoming you.

I understand that being pregnant is a very special time of our lives, and I am so happy to be able to help families to feel confident and supported throughout their journey.
Hypnobirthing is really a fantastic way to prepare with, and my experience so far is that it has a positive effect on labour and birth every time. I read more and more positive birth stories from my lovely couples who did Hypnobirthing with me, and I hope to receive loads more in the future.
I also work as a fitness professional, so I am familiar with motivating people, and help them to achieve their goals.
I hope I will see you in my class one day, and we can work together to achieve that beautiful birth you have dreamt of.
Hello, my name is Dariya and apart from hypnobirthing, I have a background in teaching dance, yoga and meditation. I have always been passionate about everything related with the power of the mind&body. I found about hypnobirthing when I got pregnant with my first baby and just thought It would be too selfish not to share it with other women. It did make a profound difference in my nearly 48 hour long labor and thanks to the hypnobirthing techniques and knowledge I managed to have a natural and pleasant birth. I am absolutely in love with this method as it provides a complete antenatal education and gives you the tools to have the best possible natural birth. After the course, you will be full of confidence and trust in the power of your own body to birth your baby beautifully and joyfully. An experience that will empower you for the rest of your life.
Hello, Thank you for reading my profile. My name is Paula. I am a Senior Midwife with over 11 years of experience within the NHS and a further 10 years as a Registered Nurse. I have always been very passionate about empowering women and providing them all the support and care possible. Often the approach within the NHS is clinical one regardless of necessity and than combined with working restrictions led me to explore avenues to provide extended support and care. To allow me to provide this support and care for woman and their families making the most of the childbirth experience, I founded "Nurtured Munchkin" a company that offers support Antenatally, during childbirth and Postnatally. I offer KGHypnobirthing classes, all over the world, in Spanish and English. You can choose the type of classes that better suits you: GROUP CLASSES: Reduced number of couples per group so you will ensure you can enjoy the classes without feeling overcrowded. It is a great opportunity to meet new parents and share your experinece with them. ONE-TO-ONE CLASSES: one to one in the comfort of your own home (or here in Woking if you prefer). Let's face it, group classes aren't for everyone, you might have a busy life, don't feel comfortable sharing feelings or thoughts with other couples. ONLINE CLASSES: via Skype, Zoom or FaceTime with garanted positive results. REFRESHER CLASSES: for those that already have some experience with Hypnobirthing but would like to have a 4 hour class to gain confidence and remember the techniques used in the past. Luxury pack: It is a one to one class with the addition of two home visits postnatally to help you in the transition to be a confident mum and total support in the first first weeks of your baby's arrival. I specialise providing support and classes to 1st time mums, home births, IVF pregnancies, mums with Gestational diabetesnd those with previous traumatic experiences as I have been supporting families in these situations during my years working in Fetal Medicine Unit and Senior Research Midwife in London hospitals. Fell free to give me a call or drop me and email. I look forward to helping you to find the right approach for you. Make your pregnancy and birth the best experience of your life and give your baby/babies the best start of their lives!!
Hello, my name is Sally. Qualifying as a clinical hypnotherapist has led me into many areas of hypnotherapy. Training as a KGHypnobirthing teacher quickly became one very exciting area for me to develop and enjoy.
I have two children and only wish that I had heard of hypnobirthing back then, (fifteen years ago!) to have had a better understanding of the natural birth process and how our bodies work and why would have been wonderfully beneficial.
After the birth of my second child I trained as a childminder which I moved on from as my children got older. Hypnotherapy has given me the privilege of helping people with a vast range of issues and KGHypnobirthing has expanded that privilege to empowering mothers to have gentle and natural births for themselves and their babies. An experience to be treasured.
I am Cranleigh based and also cover the surrounding villages nestled in between Horsham, Guildford and Dorking: Abinger, Albury, Alfold, Broadbridge Heath, Chiddingfold, Coldharbour, Dunsfold, Ewhurst, Forest Green, Godalming, Holmbury, Holmwood, Ockley, Peaslake, Rudgwick, Shalfold, Shamley Green, Sheere, Slinfold, Walliswood, Wonersh, to name a few!
I’m Megan Rossiter, a student midwife, mother and hypnobirthing practitionerI'm based in Surrey, covering areas including Thames Diton, Cobham, Esher, Surbiton, Molesey, Teddington, Kingston, Hampton and beyond.
My love for all things birthing came long before I discovered hypnobirthing, and I began my midwifery training in 2015. On this journey, I’ve been lucky enough to support many women through labour and birthing their babies, so when it came to giving birth myself I felt pretty prepared, right? Wrong!
I had an in depth understanding of the mechanisms of birth, hospital protocols and medical procedures, but I needed a way of understanding me. This body, this baby! WE had never done this before. That’s when a friend introduced us to hypnobirthing! And it changed me! As a mother, as a student midwife, as a person!
The course was amazing. Within just a few sessions, and some practice at home, I was able to relax, more deeply than I ever had before (which was welcomed during a very difficult pregnancy). My partner felt involved and the three of us felt connected (Me, Hubby and the Baby that is!). We were thrown one complexity after the other, and the prospect of ‘induction’ loomed over us. Hypnobirthing gave us the power to make informed, thought through decisions, to get the most out of our care providers and access safe, but personalised care. The glorious home birth plans we had made went out of the window, but thanks to hypnobirthing, we took everything thrown at us in our stride, and went on to have a calm, connected, beautiful birth! I would do it again tomorrow.
(Now, please excuse the preaching, but I hope you will feel the same after your birth too). WHY, I thought to myself, aren’t all women doing this?! Why isn’t this the FIRST thing they mention to you at your midwife appointments? Why is it still presented as some sort of hippy fad? Since then, it has been my mission to make birth positive, powerful and (dare I say it) enjoyable for new mums and families everywhere!
So, if you're ready to make your dream birth a reality, please get in touch!
Hypnobirthing is a form of natural childbirth which involves training expectant mothers how to use effective hypnosis techniques as part of a more calm and relaxed birth for them and their child. We believe that this gives you, as a mother, more peace of mind over your birthing, and also gives your birthing partner much more involvement in the birth in a very positive way.
KG Hypnobiring is growing, so wherever you are, we hope that you will be able to find one of our practitioners near you. Here in Surrey, we have members in Farnham, Godalming, Guildford, New Malden and Reigate, so wherever you live in the county, someone local should be able to give you support and training in hypnobirthing techniques for the birth of your baby.
Every one of our registered practitioners has been carefully assessed to ensure they fulfil our entry requirements, with extensive experience of teaching at least one of the recognised hypnobirthing methods.
