About

I’m a Mum, Wife, Certified HypnoBirthing™ Practitioner, BabyCalm™ Teacher, Life Coach and Infant Massage Practitioner based in Sanderstead, South Croydon. I love all things Birth and Baby related.

I have been involved in HypnoBirthing™ since 2006. I trained in the Mongan Method with the HypnoBirthing™ Institute and am a member of the UK HypnoBirthing Association, Prior to having my children I feared birth but taking HypnoBirthing™ classes with my husband changed how we felt about birth and we were able to positively look forward to both births despite special circumstances arising along the way.  I now work with expectant parents, across South London, North Surrey and North Kent on a Group and 1-2-1 basis helping them to achieve calm and enjoyable births.

I started Coaching in 2004, having trained at the British Coaching Academy; I have an International Diploma in Professional Coaching (Distinction) and I work with a range of clients. Coaching can take place over the phone so I’ve coached people as far afield as Shanghai and Sydney.

I have been involved in Baby Massage since 2007. I hold a Practitioner Diploma in Teaching Infant Massage, accredited to the Complementary Therapists Association and Independent Professional Therapists International. I work with parents and their babies from about 6 weeks to 6 months in Group and 1-2-1 classes. I took my own children to Baby Massage classes and loved it, as did they. It would be fair to say that those sessions were our favourite part of the week.

Working with expectant and new mums I realised that antenatal classes prepare parents for birth rather than parenthood itself. In early 2012, I qualified as a BabyCalm™ teacher to address that gap. Expectant and new parents learn how to calm their babies to achieve a happier family life for all involved and on a group basis meet other parents in the same boat. These workshops and classes are offered across South London, North Surrey and North Kent.

I contribute regularly to articles in various magazines such as Practical Parenting and Pregnancy and websites such as AOL’s parentdish.
