"Birth isn't something we suffer, but something we actively do and exult in."

Sheila Kitzinger

What We Offer

Private Classes

I am able to offer the programme in private classes for you and your partner, birth companion or whoever you would like to be there to support you. The programme is made up of 5 classes each lasting about 2.5 hours. Where possible these will be take place weekly although this is flexible. I am happy to work with you in your own home, BEST Hypnotherapy office at 3 Coates Place in Edinburgh, Cloud Nine Therapy Centre in Berwick-upon-Tweed, or alternatively from my home in Dunbar.

The programme costs £350 (There may be additional charges for travel dependent on the distance to your home or preferred venue).

A reduced rate is available if you have a friend who is also wanting to undertake the programme at the same time, this means you can share your experiences together. The cost of delivering the programme to you and a friend (and birth companions) would be £300 per person (or couple).

HypnoBirthing Classes

We are currently delivering HypnoBirthing Classes in Dunbar and Cloud Nine Therapy Centre in Berwick-upon-Tweed. Please call or email me directly to discuss class dates and times, or get in touch via Facebook. . Partners or birth companions are very welcome and encouraged to attend. HypnoBirthing classes are informal and relaxed and therefore places will be limited to five individuals or couples to ensure a comfortable and friendly environment.

The classes cost £195 inclusive of all the materials. On booking 50% (£97.50) will be payable with further payment two weeks prior to the programme.
