Testimonials...I will be happy to put you in touch with couples who have attended my courses so you can ask any questions.
What partners say …..
“I did not think a day about pregnancy would go as fast or be as relaxing.”
"I have learnt more about how to relate to J's feelings, to manage my concerns."
"The hypnosis is wonderful. Talking through mind maps was a real help too."

recommend for both men and women - particularly good for men as it
really can engender confidence and clarify the man’s role in proceedings. ”

Natal Hypnotherapy TM
Natal Hypnotherapy is the UK's leading provider of hypnosis for birth workshops and award winning CDs.
I am a fully registered Natal Hypnotherapy practitioner for South Hampshire, covering Winchester, Southampton, Salisbury, and Romsey.

I am a hypnotherapist too, training with the Hampshire School of Hypnotherapy, to offer additional support for those with anxiety and fear of birth (tokophobia).
Two Day Course
Additional materials - book/download package special offer
It's for Dads too...
Women's partners or birth partners are encouraged to attend, to experience self hypnosis for themselves, and to work with the woman to find out how best to support her in labour, gain techniques for working with the professional team attending her, and to consider how they can attend to their own needs. One dad commented - "At no time during the birth did I feel like a spare part".
Group workshop or one to one?
Group size is small for Natal Hypnotherapy workshops,typically up to 5 couples, so that everyone has the time they need. We ask you to complete a questionnaire before the workshop so that we can prepare ahead.
If the course dates don't suit you, or if you simply prefer to do the course alone or with your partner, you can request a one-to-one session, from £175 for a day. We can hold the session in your home for a small additional cost to cover travel and time.
Two by two..
Do you have a friend or relative who is pregnant and would also benefit from the course? We could run a course for 2 couples in one of your homes, and save you both money!
