Hypnobirthing Surrey - Teachers' Directory
Hi, I’m Rachel, founder of Barefoot Birthing. Wife to an arsenal supporter, mum to an inquisitive daughter and a sleep-thief son (born 2017 by IVF and 2018). I'm a positive birth advocate, and a lover of lattes, music festivals, Grey’s Anatomy, a murder mystery, my slow-growing art collection, Leonardo DiCaprio, and a good softplay cafe (for my sanity).
My passion and deep-down belly-fire to share the incredibly logical, profound, and life-changing concept of Hypnobirthing led me to completing the KGH Teacher Training and the creation of Barefoot Birthing. I believe every new mum (whether it be your first or fifth baby) deserves to feel proud, healthy, empowered, and like the super-fricking-hero that she is. The Barefoot Birthing course will help you achieve this in a relaxed, friendly, open-minded, and hopefully funny (at times) atmosphere. I understand parents want to feel knowledgeable, prepared, and confident for labour and birth, and that is exactly what the Barefoot Birthing course is designed to do.
I am a mother of two young children (born 2017 and 2018), owner of Well & Good studio in Godalming and an international events professional. Having worked with large teams across the world, I pride myself on being able to relate and engage with widely varying groups of people. My approach to teaching is one of honest relatability. There is nothing you can ask me to which I won't give you an honest answer. Rest assured, though, that I will always approach any subject matter with tact and empathy. Born in Liverpool and raised in Suffolk, studying in Leeds, then travelling the world for work - I have always been on the move but I have spent the last few years based in leafy Surrey, where I plan to bring up my two young children.

When I fell pregnant in 2017 with my firstborn son, I was determined to try and make the most of those precious 40 weeks and to rejoice in the amazing miracle my body was creating. At about 13 weeks pregnant I came across The Positive Birth Book by Milli Hill (included as part of all Magnificent Mama courses) and it genuinely changed my life. I read it cover to cover and from this point on, had a completely different outlook on my pregnancy and birth. My thoughts on my birth plan completely changed, I became very curious about Hypnobirthing and the prospect of an enjoyable birth, and I was determined to learn more. I undertook a Hypnobirthing class and it confirmed that this was the route I wanted to take. For the first time, I felt excited about giving birth. I felt in awe of what my body could do, I felt confident! My first choice was no longer a birth that was 'calm' because I was full of drugs. I now wanted a connected and positive birth, managed only by the power of my mind and body. My birth, my choices.
I became as informed as I could, I practised my Hypnobirthing techniques as often as possible and when my labour started I was so happy and excited! I went on to have a wonderful, calm birth experience and I'm sure that Hypnobirthing played a huge part in this. I’m eternally grateful that I had the opportunity to learn these invaluable techniques and I’m now choosing to spend my life on a mission to help other pregnant women achieve the best birth for them.
I am a hypnobirthing mum on a mission to help parents achieve the most positive, calm and empowering birth for their baby.
I first learnt about KGHypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my first baby and subsequently went on to have a wonderfully calm, quick and empowering birth.
I was amazed at how powerful and effective hypnobirthing had been for me and went on to tell as many people as possible about it. It was then I realised how passionately I felt about helping others have positive birth experience too and just 12 weeks after my daughter was born I decided to become a fully qualified KGHypnobirthing teacher.
My special interest is supporting couples with a second/subsequent pregnancy who may have had a negative or traumatic birth experience or have had mental health challenges.

I am a birth coach who can provide you with: - 1) knowledge about what is happening & what to expect (the antenatal education) - 2) understanding your fears & exploring them with evidence, a different perspective & your chance to tell your story - 3) give you the confidence to navigate the journey through labour & birth, however you plan to birth, whatever your circumstances. My name is Rachel and I founded Hey Mama. I'm a Mama to one incredible toddler, an accredited hypnobirthing teacher, former student Mental Health Nurse and passionate about supporting women to birth positively whatever story they have - whether that is previous mental health issues, grief, pregnancy loss, birth trauma, IVF, or you are fearful of how you will ever manage to give birth.

I am a dedicated mother to a daughter of 8 years and twins, boy/girl of 3 years.
I am a pro at IVF, 6 cycles in, mine were all conceived via IVF and so would love to work with fellow IVF couples along my teaching journey.
I owned my own pre-school for 15 years, so my background prior to this has always been children, I was an Early Years Professional and SENCO for many years.
My focus, professionally, is now on birth and babies, however I remain in my Early Years role at home with my twins.
I like the fact that the couples I teach Hypnobirthing to now come back to me for baby massage. I get to meet the beautiful babies, whose parents I helped prepare, to bring them into the world.
I look forward to helping couples release their fear and go into birthing their child with the tools they need to be calm and confident.
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!
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.
