May Course-Practitioner Feedback
"Having completed the HypnoBirthing Practitioner Course, it gave me new insight into how a birthing day could be, and renewed my belief in the body's ability to birth naturally. The relaxation techniques we were taught have changed my life. Usually quite an anxious person in daily life, I now find I am able to apply the techniques to relax in ways I didnt think possible. I find it have transferred the skills into my every day midwifery practice to enhance the care I give to women and help them relax in any situation.
Alison is a complete inspiration to everyone around her and is always a warm and welcoming soul. I would recommend this course to anyone and I would do it again in a flash".
"The Practitioners training course gives more women the opportunity to experience the benefits that hypnobirthing can bring... for me, being able to contribute to providing women with the birth they desire is without doubt a fulfilling experience. The continued added support and advice that we have had since completing the course has only added to this experience and it gives you confidence and enthusiasm to help other women achieve the same".
"I went to the practitioner training in May for CPD (as a B-Back) as I've been a practitioner for about three and a half years. I went away from the weekend feeling even more inspired than I thought possible with so many new new ideas for improving my classes. Alison brought a great energy to the weekend. I can't wait to go back!
