About Myself

Beautiful folks of London, Surrey, Surbiton, Kingston Upon Thames, Richmond, and surrounding areas. I’m here to support you every step of the way on your birthing journey.

I’m a Mum of two, Ruby and Max, and had very positive and quick birthing experiences with both children.

I’ve supported women hypnobirthing in every birthing environment; home, waterbirth, the obstetric unit, with and without epidural analgesia, the midwifery unit as well as before and during a caesarean birth. I’m filled with awe that your birthing journey is completely unique and hypnobirthing will always make a positive impact on your birthing journey. It's such a great start as a family, our society needs this.

I’ve worked in both the NHS and the private sector; I feel comfortable and confident supporting families using either system.

In 2011, I was a frazzled Mum/midwife when our family moved to Sweden. Keen to meet new friends and curious, I rocked up to a meditation class. The effects of quieting my mind were profound, to put it mildly, my outlook on life improved and kind of expanded, its effects are hard to put into words! With this focus on the power of the mind and body connection and my love of supporting pregnant and birthing women, I trained as a KG Hypnobirthing teacher in 2011. I went on to teach couples hypnobirthing while living in Sweden and Dubai. This was the start of Essence Hypnobirthing. 

I’m happy I found hypnobirthing as it honours and prepares a birthing woman and her partner on a very deep level, no stone is left unturned, you’ll have everything you need for this journey to becoming parents. The best start as a family.

Fascinated by the ‘hypnosis’ part of hypnobirthing I went on to training as a hypnotherapist with world renowned hypnotherapist and Author Beryl Comar. Deepening my knowledge of hypnosis gives me the confidence to personalize the course. We all have our own little quirky niggles and worries so it’s important I hit the spot!
