Hi, I’m Sandra Bush and in 2011 I trained as a Hypnobirthing practitioner with Maggie Howell, founder of Natal Hypnotherapy. I’m also an NCT Antenatal Teacher and Tutor/Assessor , facilitating my first course in 1994 and I have recently taught my very last NHS antenatal course at St. George’s Hospital in Tooting. I’ve very much enjoyed working with the women and their partners I’ve met over the last 15 years..
I am also a qualified Hypnotherapist, NGH certified (National Guild of Hypnotists). The knowledge and experience I gained through my training has really helped bring my hypnobirthing to a new level.
My work with women and/or their partners living with the after-effects of Birth Trauma is something I find particularly rewarding. I offer the Rewind technique to remove the negative troubling feelings that can linger after a traumatic experience. If you, or you if you know someone who has had a traumatic birth experience, please check out my page here under “Birth Trauma”.
For hypnobirthing ordinarily I offer group workshops in Wandsworth and also private one to one sessions, but in the current climate I am in the process of converting this to live online sessions.
It’s a good while now since I gave birth to our two sons and although Hypnobirthing wasn’t around then I am convinced the breathing and relaxation techniques I learned in both NCT and yoga classes made a difference, and I was fortunate to have fantastic support each time but I now know that had things turned out differently the techniques would have prepared me better .
If you are expecting a baby and want to feel more confident about giving birth do consider booking a Hypnobirthing workshop with me.
