Why I became a practitioner
I become a Natal Hypnotherapy Practitioner in order to help women discover childbirth can be an enriching and life enhancing experience. I feel passionate about sharing this belief.
My core beliefs surrounding pregnancy and birth
When a woman becomes pregnant, it is an opportunity for her to witness first hand, the wondrous powers of her body and to gain greater self–knowledge.
Natal Hypnotherapy helps a woman realise her body’s innate and instinctive ability to birth her baby and this plays a huge part in enhancing her confidence. This confidence in turn improves her birth experience.
Natal Hypnotherapy helps to diminish fears and doubts prospective parents may have, thereby allowing for a more positive and empowering atmosphere.
My experience of working with pregnant women and my personal experience of Natal Hypnotherapy
Since having children of my own, I have worked with pregnant women as a birthing consultant, passing on the information and advice I found so helpful.
Feedback reveals the advice to be hugely inspiring and empowering and has allowed the expectant mums to focus on the forthcoming event with a new sense of anticipation and excitement.
It’s clear from testimonials gathered after the births, that the benefits of being well informed and calm in the lead up, are enormous.
Since then, I have completed my Natal Hypnotherapy training, started running their highly successful courses and have now assisted at several births, seeing first- hand, the benefits.

We just wanted to say a quick thank you for such a great day on Saturday, we both feel we really benefitted from it and feel far more confident. I can't wait to use my CD for relaxation, a real treat. We also discussed your idea of having a few books to flick through so we can prepare for bump "growing up"! and think its a great idea, we were wondering if you had any particular recommendations.
Thank you so much for welcome us into your lovely home and being so patient, open and kind. Lucinda
These invaluable and simple insights into birthing techniques enabled me to have a full night of sleep, with contractions; such was my feeling of joyous serenity at the prospect of labour ahead. Your tips gave me the confidence needed to allow body, nature and spirit to take their own course, without medical intervention. My daughter was born into an atmosphere of love and laughter, the very best start for all of us. Claudia Mallinson Herbalist and Mother.
I found the birth calm and organised, thanks to Rachel hearing of these tips. I'd definitely do it again! Paul Ledger Fitness Instructor and Father.
Your notes were brilliant. I was very anxious this time, having already had three beautiful healthy babes. I read your notes over and over to remind myself how to relax. It is funny how you tense up all those muscles without thinking. I was sitting on a birthing ball, really concentrating on having a soft face, relaxed jaw etc, trying to go with the pain instead of fighting it. Somehow the way you expressed yourself seemed to relate to me, whereas previous advice on breathing had gone over my head. Polly Coke Mother of Four.
I decided to try this course first, before ante-natal classes – I’m glad I did as I feel I have learnt exactly what I wanted to. The course exceeded all my expectations. I am really looking forward to having my baby and totally in control and mentally prepared. Thank you!! Laleh Dastgerdi.
Georgie is a natural teacher and managed the course brilliantly. A very positive experience. Ralph Hazell.
Would highly recommend to friends and thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. Nicola Morrison.
I enjoyed the relaxed and positive attitude of the course and teacher. Matt Evans.
Great weekend, very very glad that we did it. The course should be on the NHS. Paul Grant.
Georgie was fantastic, eloquent and expressive. Very calm and re-assuring. A great sense of peace and focus. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who is pregnant. I learnt so much and I already have 2 children! Clarissa Astor.
I thought Georgie was very easy to talk to and very knowledgable about the subject and Tracey and I both feel we could contact her if we needed; she really was very inspiring. For me the course opened up a new side of belief that will be very useful in my future life. Hugh Humphries.
Would highly recommend this to couples. Helps the father very much. Michael Sum.
Georgie’s knowledge, experience and enthusiasm about what she was teaching came across and made it easier to learn. She has a wonderful persona for teaching this course. Having the course in Georgie’s home made the whole experience extra special. Tracey Humphries.
Georgie is an excellent trainer and such a welcoming person. I feel she has given me the toolsand truly empowered me to have control over the birth I want. She has an open style of communication and I felt very comfortable asking questions in a safe comfy and re-assuring environment. Excellent!
