'We really enjoyed our Hypnobirthing course with Sofie. She is so supportive and encouraging and this gave me so much confidence when I birthed our son. I really felt I had the tools to keep strong and believe in myself. Even I couldn't believe how in control and relaxed I felt. I can't imagine giving birth without doing Hypnobirthing.'
Hi! I'm Sofie I am your KG Hypnobirthing Coach and I want to share with you the secrets of how you can have a peaceful, gentle and even enjoyable birth for you and your baby. I am a Hypno-Mum to my two little treasures Bonnie and Theo, married to Tony and live in a colourful, cozy flat in Hove.
I am a fully qualified KG Hypnobirthing Teacher, which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and have been teaching Hypnobirthing classes since 2012.
Over the last 20 years I have coached hundreds of people in mindfulness and personal development in the UK and abroad. During this time I have qualified as a CPD Trainer, NLP Practitioner and have qualifications in Contemporary Psychotherapy, Eriksonian Hypnotherapy and Counselling. My teaching approach is fun, relaxed and supportive. I can confidently combine my experience and knowledge to offer you and your birth partner a positive and confident mindset, a fresh perspective to birth and a calm path into parenting.
When I first heard about the wonders of Hypnobirthing I honestly thought it sounded too good to be true. I had never thought about applying all the lessons I taught about positive thinking, visualisation, breathing, mindfulness and relaxation into giving birth! So when I first fell pregnant I decided to put my words into actions and give it a go. I attended a Marie Mongan Hypnobirthing course, did lots and lots of practice with Tony, and when Birth-day finally arrived everything I had learnt magically fell into place.
Giving birth to each of my babies was an amazing, exhilarating and empowering experience and they changed me forever! Throughout both of my labours and births, I was calm and fully in control. Despite Bonnie being born at 38 weeks and Theo at 42 they were both born in birthing pools, at home, after very short labours, with my husband and two wonderful NHS Midwives by my side.
I believe every expectant mother should know about Hypnobirthing and I want to show you that by having an open mind and investing some time in yourself before your baby's birth, enormous benefits will be given to you, your partner and your baby for the rest of your lives.
I am an active member of the Hypnobirthing Association and fully insured.
I am always happy to have a cuppa and a chat, just give me a call if you would like to meet up.
I hope to speak to you soon.
