My journey began in 2012 when I gave birth to my daughter Elsie using Hypnobirthing. I had such a wonderful, positive and empowering birthing experience, that it inspired me to train as a Hypnobirthing practitioner myself, as at the time in Cornwall there were a very limited amount of practitioners. This ignited a flame inside me and a true calling to support women and birthing people. I found my gang in 2020 when I joined the TBU Academy. I am also a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist; I specialise in anxiety, stress, confidence, self esteem, habits, phobias, fear and birth trauma. I am also trained in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and have NLP knowledge and experience which I build into my practice.
In 2018 I completed my Breastfeeding Support Training with the ABM (Association of Breastfeeding Mothers) and share my knowledge and experience with anyone who needs it. 2018 was also the year I trained in Traumatic Birth Recovery 3 Step Rewind Technique – which enables me to better support mothers/parents who wish to work through any previous birth trauma they may have experienced.
To support me in my practice I also have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology, Childhood and Youth Studies. Throughout my business and professional practice I work to and adhere to the National Occupational Standards and I hold full, comprehensive insurance through Holistic Insurance Services. I am a registered member of FEDANT (Federation of Antenatal Educators)
I have been successfully teaching the Hypnobirthing course for 9 years and supporting pregnant people as a Doula for 6 years. I am so passionate about what I do and feel so blessed that I can be just a small part of peoples pregnancy and birthing journeys. The feeling of confidence and empowerment that couples get from taking control of their birth is priceless. Watching a woman learn to trust in her body, let go of her fears, and build on her belief in her ability to accomplish anything she puts her mind to, is what makes my job so rewarding.
