Why I became a practitioner
I became a practitioner after having used Natal Hypnotherapy in my birth: My partner and I learnt so much information which despite our previous experience and knowledge, was totally new to us. We couldn't quite believe that the information and tools we were taught aren't mainstream as it had such a profound and positive impact on our experience
It was such an incredible experience that I felt like I needed to shout about it from the rooftops and share this wonderful tool with as many people as I can! I have also found that some of the techniques we learn really are tools for life and I find myself calling on them often.
My core beliefs surrounding pregnancy and birth
I believe that every woman deserves to have a labour that she doesn't fear, is excited about and that she recalls with love and positivity. I feel that using these incredible tools can help you to find your power, make positive choices and feel in control and excited about your experience
My experience of working with pregnant women and my personal experience of Natal Hypnotherapy
I'm a doula and women's health practitioner - and using Natal Hypnotherapy seems like a beautiful extension, almost the missing piece, in the work I do with women
Hypnobirthing is an incredible way of staying calm and grounded throughout pregnancy and birth, and working with me I hope helps you have an experience you can feel proud of
I have been working with women for around 15 years now, more recently starting with Natal Hypnotherapy. I absolutely love watching the transformation as we learn the tools and being to practise them. Seeing it in action is always so powerful.

"Before our session started Jo talked at length with me and my husband about our wishes and fears..."
"Jo opened my eyes to a whole new world of how I really was in charge of my own body even when drs were deciding what to do with it. She informed me about how I could consent to what happened and how we could ask drs for time to decide if intervention was needed...Thank you Jo for empowering both my husband and I have a more positive birth experience"
"We really enjoyed the course with Jo, she made us feel relaxed and at ease. She was thorough in what she taught and explained everything very well and at a good pace. We are grateful to have had her as our teacher, and could not recommended her highly enough. She was really a pleasure to learn from!"
