Hypnobirthing West Midlands - Teachers' Directory
I am a mum of one and have spent my whole adult life caring for children in various roles. I am a qualified primary school teacher and I'm also a KGH mum myself. I know firsthand what a difference hypnobirthing can make! Since having my own baby, I am passionate about helping other couples to achieve a positive and empowering birth experience.
Hello I'm Karen, a qualified and very experienced Complimentary Therapist. I have also gained a wealth of experience working for the NHS for over 27 years as a Registered General Nurse and Health Visitor. I first trained as a Reflexologist in London following the birth of my daughter, having had regular treatments throughout my pregnancy to ease the symptoms and ensure I was relaxed and well for the birth. I trained at St. Marys university in Twickenham and registered with the Association of Reflexologists. I have continued to study and now specialise in fertility, maternity and baby reflexology.
I have trained as a KG Hypnobirthing teacher and I am passionate about supporting parents to improve their birth experience and share the knowledge and skills to empower them.
Hypnobirthing is a logical, simple and comprehensive antenatal programme, as well as techniques to support in pregnancy and labour it instils confidence in parents. I am also a qualified infant massage and baby yoga instructor and offer small classes or 1:1sessions.

Throughout my midwifery training, I was amazed and encouraged by the remarkable women I met and cared for, reinforcing my passion to improve birth experiences for all women. When I first cared for a woman who was utilising Hypnobirthing techniques, I was astounded by her confidence in her body, her baby and her birth and witnessed firsthand what a positive impact this had. I am a firm believer in KG Hypnobirthing, having seen it's huge success in a multitude of scenarios and my aim is to assist couples, making their pregnancy journey and experience as calm and positive as possible. I completed my dissertation on the use of hypnosis as a complementary therapy and I was amazed by the quantity of positive research. I was then fortunate enough to win the Iolanthe Midwifery Trust Student Award which funded my Hypnobirthing training. I teach Hypnobirthing alongside my career as a midwife which gives me a full insight into the advantages of Hypnobirthing throughout the birthing journey.
I have 0ver 30 years experience in the NHS and have been a Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner since 2000, specialising in Hypnobirthing for the last few years. Working with Coaching, Mentoring and Counselling skills enables me to provide a rounded approach for all I work with. I have a large family and we are all very close, meeting up on a regular basis. I have two beautiful children, Joe who is 26, an electrician and soon to be married and Jennie who is 24, a primary teacher who loves outdoor sports. My Mum is 85, very fit and healthy and spends everyday with us. Family and their wellbeing is very important to me.
