I'm an accredited c
linical hypnotherapist, antenatal teacher and birth doula. I live with my husband Andrew and our nine year old daughter Maya in the village of Praze-an-Beeble, Cornwall, England (here's Maya's homebirth story)


A homegrown little business valuing simplicity, value and authenticity. My practice is down-to-earth, holistic, woman-centred and evidence-based. I aim to inform and support you to become more confident and empowered, however you give birth.


I've trained with leading international experts including Janet Balaskas, Michel Odent, Adam Eason, Kicki Hansard and Maggie Howell. My degree was in psychology and counselling, before catching 22 babies as a trainee midwife in London. Following further teacher training in childbirth education, hypnobirthing, and clinical hypnotherapy, I launched Cornwall hypnobirthing classes in 2007 and founded Hypnobirthing Online in 2012.

Accredited training and voluntary regulation...

he Department of Heath and Royal College of Midwives recommend that the public choose complementary practitioners from a Professional Standards Authority (PSA) accredited register. The PSA is accountable to UK Parliament. As a PSA accredited CNHC registrant I have achieved the highly regarded Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), which is externally validated by NCFE and mapped to the national occupational hypnotherapy standards. CNHC registrants abide by a strict code of ethics, undertake regular reflective CPD to update our skills and have sufficient professional and public liability insurance

I have 12 years of experience as a birth doula, having originally trained with Nurturing Birth and completed the Doula UK mentoring and recognition process. I have full professional and public liability insurance
