Relax!

Relaxation in Pregnancy

We all lead busy lives and it seems that now more than ever, we’re expected to carry on throughout pregnancy as normal. Pregnancy is an exciting time, your body is doing an amazing job growing a wee person which is a huge amount of work! Although we can’t see what’s going on, the body is busy protecting and nurturing your baby which is a 24 hour job! Phew! It’s fantastic but exhausting both physically and emotionally.

Whilst pregnancy is an exciting time, it can also be a time of anxiety, worry and nerves. I have developed this unique relaxation class to provide you with an opportunity to take time out of your busy life to relax and boost your mindset for pregnancy and motherhood. In hypnobirthing, we say that where the mind goes, the body follows. Since we know that the body reacts to our thoughts and feelings, it’s vital that we take care of both.
By combining topics related to your pregnancy and childbirth, exercises designed around boosting mindset, and elements from hypnobirthing, you’re sure to come away from the class feeling positive and relaxed!
This is a great opportunity to chat about your pregnancy with other mums-to-be and learn about the ethos of hypnobirthing in a safe, supportive environment.
It’s an ideal introduction to those interested in hypnobirthing. You’ll learn an incredibly effective breathing technique for labour and experience relaxation scripts specially written for use in pregnancy.

positive birth workshop

Positive Birth Workshop

How many times have you heard women share their horror stories about labour? About that thing which happened to that woman that no one has actually met but this is exactly how it went down? How many times have people shared their advice about just how your labour will go?

We’re bombarded with messages from other people and in the media which tell us that birth is something to be feared. It’s something that will be traumatic and is something that will hurt like hell. We just have to accept that it’s going to be awful but at least you get to meet your baby at the end of it. It’s almost like a badge of honour.

But what if there is another way…

I believe that EVERYONE deserves to feel positive about childbirth. It is possible, I promise you.

I’ve created the positive birth workshop which is designed for those who are interested in the ideas of hypnobirthing but can’t commit to the time or finances of doing the full course. These things shouldn’t be a barrier to learning positive techniques which can help to change your mindset. It’s the perfect way to start your journey into the world of thinking positively about birth.

This affordable, 3-hour workshop is packed full of information about what happens during labour and focuses on how to develop a really positive mindset for childbirth.

You will learn:

  • About the relationship between the mind and the body. You’ll understand why thinking about the mind and body together instead of separately is key.
  • What hormones are involved in labour and why our thoughts effect which ones we produce. This is vital throughout labour as producing adrenalin can really hinder the process. It’s all about that Oxytocin baby!
  • Tips and advice on how to create your ideal birthing environment – no matter where you give birth
  • Mindset exercises which will help you to generally feel more positive
  • We’ll talk about those negative influences and how you can learn to shift your focus away from them
  • Breathing exercises. This is such an amazing thing to learn and I’ll be sharing how to get the best out of effective breathing and why it can be a game changer during labour.
  • Why using visualisation and affirmations are such powerful tools. You’ll experience what it’s like to put them into practice.

Anxiety Release Workshop for Parents

Anxiety Release Workshops for Parents

We all want to do our best for our kids. So many of us fear that our “problems” or “issues” will affect our children as they grow up. Perhaps you experienced this in your own childhood or maybe it fills you with anxiety when you hear about how influenced children are in later life by their environment in their early years.
This workshop will provide the opportunity to explore your anxieties and help you make the changes you desire to break away from old thought patterns.
As a qualified Hypnotherapist and mum of two, you’ll be guided towards a more positive life for you and your family.

Anxiety Release Workshop

When we feel anxious, we fear and worry about things which haven’t happened yet. Some of these things will come to pass while others are in our mind. Anxiety can really stop us from living our lives the way we really want to.

This workshop provides a safe space to share, and practical exercises to explore ways of releasing the emotions, beliefs and thoughts which are holding you back. It will help you to manage situations more effectively showing you ways to reframe your old thoughts.
