'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 our little treasures Bonnie and Theo & married to Tony, who has a full beard and a warm heart.
I am a fully qualified, award winning (ooh I say Mrs!) KG Hypnobirthing Teacher and 3 Step Rewind Practitioner and have taught more that 1,000 Hypnobirthing couples in Sussex, nationwide and now worldwide since 2012. As I now live mainly on the Isle of Wight my courses are now via Zoom, please don't let the name put you off.
Over the last 25 years I have always been a teacher, a trainer and a coach. Working in the field of mindfulness and personal development in the UK and abroad. I specialised in working with women, supporting specific women's groups including; Bangladeshi women; teenage mothers, homeless women, sex workers, substance users; domestic violence groups and asylum seekers. My passion and my curiosity has always been how to better support women to become confident and strong; to trust themselves and their own inner power and innate wisdom. I feel very privileged to support birthing women and their partners and be part of a growing positive birth movement that is helping to change and improve the landscape of birthing for all families.
I am qualified as a KG Hypnobirthing Teacher, 3 Step Rewind Practitioner, CPD Trainer, NLP Practitioner and have qualifications in Contemporary Psychotherapy, Eriksonian Hypnotherapy, Counselling Skills Levels 2 & 3 and Holy Fire Reiki Healing 1 & 2, EFT (Emotional Freedom Tapping) & Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner, Heal Your Birth Practitioner and a YogaBody Breath Coach.
My teaching approach is fun, relaxed and supportive. I can confidently combine my experience and knowledge to offer you and your birth partner all the tools you need to build; a positive and confident mindset, a fresh perspective to childbirth and a calm path into parenthood.
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 my husband Tony, and when Birth-day finally arrived everything I had learnt magically fell into place.
I trusted in my body and I consciously released any tension; I completely LET GO and went with the sensations I felt and truly..... it was AMAZING!
Giving birth to each of my babies was such an eye opening, exhilarating and empowering experience that they changed me forever! Throughout both of my labours and births, I was calm and fully in control (see me breathing in the pic below - this was 90 minutes before Theo was born). Despite Bonnie being born at 38 weeks and Theo at 42 with my waters going for 88 hours! 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 chat, just give me a call/text or WhatsApp 07595603218 or drop me a line email@example.com
I hope to speak to you soon.
Love and relaxation
