HypnoBirthing Courses - Information and Booking
Small group HypnoBirthing courses take place at Saltash Physiotherapy Clinic and Tavistock Therapy Centre. As spaces are limited it allows me to give quality attention to everyone in the group and also provides a great atmosphere for learning and relaxing. I provide refreshments and have yoga mats and pillows available but recommend that you bring your own if possible. My courses have a lovely, supportive atmosphere and clients leave feeling invigorated and empowered as well as extremely relaxed!
A £50 deposit secures your spot with the balance due on or before the first session and payment in instalments is possible-just ask for details or see a little further down this page for booking information.
I hold monthly information sessions that are free to attend so you can meet me, find out more about the course and ask any questions you may have. To register your interest and receive my Free Guide to HypnoBirthing, please click here: Register your interest here

It’s worth taking time to find the right HypnoBirthing course for you and so I’m always happy to chat and answer any questions you may have.
This is the original and still the best HypnoBirthing course. Taught by a Clinical Hypnotherapist, accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and covering all you need for a calm, gentle birth.
Sessions are 2.5 hours long, 5 in total. They are spread over 5 weeks in order to ensure maximum benefit and time to prepare however if time is short please let me know and we can arrange something to fit in with your schedule.
