Cornwall hypnobirthing doula Alice Rosemary

Hello!
 
I'm an antenatal teacher and clinical hypnotherapist specialising in hypnobirthing. I live with my husband Andrew and ten year old daughter Maya in Praze-an-Beeble, west Cornwall. I've been teaching face-to-face hypnobirthing classes for the past 14 years and founded my hypnobirthing online course in 2012. I'm also a part time receptionist at The Dental Hygiene Suite in Truro.
 

Ethos...
 
The values of my homegrown little business are quality, authenticity & affordability. My practice is down-to-earth, holistic, person-centred and evidence-based. I aim to inform and support you to become more confident and empowered, however you give birth.

"We felt that your delivery was professional, yet personal and from the heart" Katy & Adam, Manaccan


Background...
 
I've trained with leading international experts including Janet Balaskas, Michel Odent, Adam Eason, Kicki Hansard and Maggie Howell. I gained my psychology & counselling degree in London, before completing over two years of midwifery training at London's St Thomas' Hospital (catching 22 babies!) Following further courses in doulaing, childbirth education and hypnobirthing, I launched my business in 2006.


An approved provider...
 
The Department of Health recommends that complementary practitioners are chosen from a Professional Standards Authority accredited register. The authority reports to Parliament and also oversees the General Medical Council, and Nursing & Midwifery Council. 

As a CNHC registrant I have achieved the highly regarded Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), which is externally validated by Ofqual awarding body NCFE and mapped to the Skills for Health National Occupational Standards for Hypnotherapy. CNHC registrants abide by a strict code of ethics, undertake regular reflective CPD to update our skills and have professional and public liability insurance. I also have a clean DBS certificate viewable on request.
