Hypnobirthing Surrey - Teachers' Directory
I'm Katie, mum of 2, Midwife, Hypnobirthing practioner, feminist and level 10 tea maker! Having used hypnobirthing as antenatal education with my 2nd child and having seen women gently and calmly birthing their babies I decided I should train as a KGH teacher as I believe all women should have access to hypnobirthing as part of their antenatal education!
As mentioned, I am currently in my second year of Midwifery at the University of West London. As well as being a qualifed Hypnobirther DipHb(KGH), I also hold a degree in Music and Musical Theatre from the University of Chichester so I truly understand the importance of music on relaxation and mood! If I am not singing show tunes with friends, then you will probably find my cuddling my lovely dog, Reuben!

I am mum to two gorgeous girls aged 4 and 7 and live in Surrey. I also care for and support families as a qualified Birth and Postnatal Doula.
I realise I was lucky to have had so much help and support when beginning my journey into parenthood and I knew I wished to pay this forward. My desire is to help, so others can receive the support and empathy they need whether pregnant, during labour or postnatally. I am passionate about parents becoming informed, enabling them to make decisions right for them and feeling empowered by their experience so parents can begin their new life in a positive way.
I am excited and honoured by every family I am able to support, whether it is your first baby or as you grow your family. I hope my passion shows through my work with my clients. I pride myself on my warm, dependable and trustworthy nature. I understand everyone is unique and I will always listen to and respect your wishes and will be led by you whatever you decide.
I'm mother to two grown children (29 & 17) who were born in hospital and home respectively. I'm an Independent and NHS caseloading midwife and travel internationally to support birth. I'm an activist and ardent supporter of the rights of parents to have the birth they choose. I am an Infant Feeding Specialist and Tongue Tie practitioner and am passionate about supporting early bonding and attachment to optimize early brain development. I am very well read and up to date on current research. I love to signpost people to the support and information they need to enhance their parenting journey.
I have a medical background and began my journey to find alternatives to invasive and often unnecessary procedures 3 years ago.
I started my hypnotherapy diploma and didn't look back. More often than not we can help our bodies to heal by treating the mind better. This journey led me towards perinatal care - for many women the inability to conceive becomes a mental block, and in some cases hypnotherapy can help to relieve this blockage and allow nature to resume it's course. Hypnotherapy is also a well known tool to encourage breech babies to turn.
As part of this service training with KG Hypnobirthing was my next logical step in creating a naturally flowing pathway for the women I work with. Birthing a baby is one of the most natural things we can do, every mammal does it (normally quietly, in private and without intervention) and yet we, as humans, often find it is overly medicalised and leaves women feeling like they didn't have the birth they wanted. I want to empower women to have the experience they desire and deserve.
At ACT clinic we want to be part of your journey.

Hello, I’m Marie Linton at Essence Hypnobirthing. I'm trained in two methods of hypnobirthing, The Mongan Method and KG Hypnobirthing. I'm a Midwife (retired) with over 25 years experience and a Hypnotherapist. I'm also trained in the art of Swedish Massage ( I.T.E.C.)
I live in Kingston Upon Thames and cover South West London and all areas in Surrey.
I'm currently teaching a private tailor-made Hypnobirthing course in the comfort of your own home. Perfect for busy couples who prefer flexible sessions and privacy.
I've had positive natural births with both of my own babies. They’re strapping teenagers now living very full lives which allows time for me to share the amazing benefits of KG Hypnobirthing .
During my midwifery career I've supported many women choosing to hypnobirth in a variety of settings, obstetric unit, the birthing unit, and at home including water births. It’s such a privilege to be present and support couples during this transformative time. I've had a long career as a midwife working in both the public and private healthcare sectors. Having this 'inside knowledge' I'm able to help you navigate these healthcare systems, which ensures you achieve the best possible birth for you and your baby.
While living in Sweden I was introduced to the practise of meditation and started to feel the benifits of quietening my mind. My general health and outlook on life improved dramatically. With this focus on the power of the mind and body connection and my love of supporting women I trained as a Hypnobirthing teacher in 2011. I went on to teach couples while living in Sweden and Dubai, I've taken these skills around the world with me making a difference to couples whatever their circumstances. Fascinated by the 'hypnosis' part of hypnobirthing I went on to training as a hypnotherapist with world reknown hypnotherapist and Author Beryl Comar.
As you've probably guessed, I’m quite obsessed about all things related to birth. Over the years I've attended heaps of birth related courses run by global birth educators, resulting in a big bag of birthing skills and info which I’ll share with you during the course: Spinning Babies, gentle massage techniques, mindful breathing, birthing positions and Rebozo to name a few. All of the birth information I share is based on up to date evidenced based research
I offer a highly personalised, bespoke hypnobirthing course. If this is something you’re considering, please get in touch and arrange a free, no obligation, taster session
Looking forward to hearing from you.
I'm Lene a mother, midwife and founder of Little Additions. Since qualifying as a midwife in 2005 I have worked in the NHS caring for women and their families during pregnancy, labour and birth and in the postnatal period. My experience include working both in a high-risk obstetric setting and in a midwifery-led unit.
I now work as a community midwife and attend homebirths allowing me to provide continuity of care for women at a very special time in their life.
A big part of my current role is to facilitate and teach antenatal classes to couples which I enjoy very much, and offering hypnobirthing classes seems like a natural addition to my role and skills as a midwife. More recently I have also added aromatherapy to my skills set.
I'm passionate about supporting women and their families enabling them to experience a calm, positive and empowering pregnancy and birth using hypnobirthing.
The birth of my baby and hypnobirthing inspired me to take on this journey to becoming a hypnobirthing teacher. I now want to share all these fantastic skills, inform and prepare mums-to-be and their birth partners for this magical moment in their lives.
I am based in Sutton, South London, Surrey and surrounding areas such as

Hello, I am Sally.
Congratulations upon your pregnancy. I am the recent founder of the Underwood Baby Academy but have been a midwife for many years. I am currently working as a midwife matron within a London NHS Trust. I started teaching KGHypnobirthing last year and it has really changed my life. I found it's simple logical and profound approach to antenatal education, inspirational and wish I had learnt about it earlier. It would have really supplemented my clinical practice and definitely assisted with the births of my 6 children!
The underwood baby academy offers various membership packages for couples to join during or after their births. Our packages incorporporate different modules - starting with KGH hypnobirthing antenatal education training, to pregnancy yoga, baby massage, first aid courses, positive parenting courses, nutrition advice, weaning workshops, discounted spa sessions, keep fit and even a pregnancy photo shoot.
We have a small team of midwives and professionals and would love to meet you and your partners at the start of your journeys to parenthood.
Hi, Congratulations on your pregnancy! My name is Julie, I am the founder of The Blossoming Birth Company, mum 2 two grown up girls and a Nanna to a wonderful little boy. I have been a midwife all of my life, being with women and their families is such a priveleged position, it is truly magical.
I know how important it is for women to feel informed, loved and supported during her pregnancy and then on into her labour and birth. Whether it be her first or tenth baby, whether her birth is a planned c-section or home-birth, the way she is supported and nurtured should not differ, that is, and always has been my approach to being alongside a woman during this miraculous time.
With my course I will ensure you have information, you laugh, you understand and you enjoy learning about what lie ahead. I and you will have the benefit of my midwifery experience, which is there to enhance the wonderful training I have experienced during my KGHypnobirthing course. My aim is simple..... you will leave my course feeling confident in your body, your mind and your ability to choose what feels right for you.
I cover Surrey, Berkshire, Middlesex.
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 calm, orgasmic and empowering experience for her and 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.
Hi I'm Emily, a friendly local doula in Berkshire, Hampshire and Surrey. I offer antenatal & KGHypnobirthing classes and birth & postnatal doula services. Check out my website emilythedoula.co.uk
I used KGHypnobirthing with my first baby, who I had at home. After experiencing the incredible power of our minds and bodies as birthing people, I trained so that I can help and guide others on their journey to parenthood.
Before becoming a doula, I was an artist making window displays for Anthropologie in London and before that I was teaching Art & Design to college students in Cornwall. I am creative and detail oriented and I thrive on helping others achieve their goals; be that through teaching, making shop windows look their best or just lending an ear to a friend to work through a problem together.
I would describe myself as a quiet extrovert, I gain energy from being with people but I don’t need or want to be the centre of attention. I have always been interested in other people and their stories. Once I am invested in people’s stories, I want to support till the end, so I offer continued support for parents who complete my course.
The values to which I hold myself are authenticity, patience, being positive or constructive, non-judgemental, considered, well informed, and open minded.
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.
Our Core Principles
Our members have signed up to our code of conduct, which ensures they are committed to enhancing birthing for mothers through natural childbirth, by teaching good quality practices. In addition, they work with us to promote hypnobirthing techniques in order to raise awareness of their effectiveness in achieving a relaxed birth for both mother and child.
