What is Hypnobirthing and how can it help me?
In essence to me Hypnobirthing is really about empowering women and their birth partners to experience a positive pregnancy and birth. Despite what the name suggests, hypnobirthing is not all about hypnosis. There are no pendulums waving past your nose and you definitely will not be put under some ‘spell’ and run around the labour room clucking like a chicken.
Hypnobirthing parents unapologetically, positively anticipate a good birth experience and are willing to take ownership of it. The results are far reaching, because when we have an empowering birth experience, this sets us up well for empowered and positive parenting.
Hypnobirthing mothers and birth partners educate ourselves about how the body and mind works and how the birthing process is designed to unfold; so that we feel calmer and more confident during birthing. Just as an athlete trains for an event- we too, train our mind and body for the amazing ‘endurance event’ that we are about to preform.
The tools we use are calming relaxation techniques, visualisations, current and researched education to enable informed decisions which we non-judgementally support .
We also teach self-hypnosis to enable our Mum’s to learn how to really relax and this tool continues to support you later on, in parenting also. We use hypnosis to release fears and during the birth itself to help you stay in a positive mind set and in the zone for a calming and beautiful birth.
We have an abundance of resources for our Mum’s and birth partners in our parent ‘Folio of Resources’: from birth videos, relaxation scripts and downloads, bonding with baby info, through to how your amazing uterus and body births your baby and more……
Currently I offer on-line courses either in a group or privately as well for individuals I offer face to face courses.
Post Covid 19 :I will offer face to face courses for groups and individually with Mum’s and their birth partners.
I have been practising Clinical Hypnotherapy for 14 years this year 2020, along with Quantum Emotional Freedom Technique and Holistic Counselling for on-going support if required after the course and our time together and after the birth of your baby.

“People say to me, "What have you been doing?" I have returned to my pre-baby weight and feel years younger. I was emotionally eating but by getting my mind focused on health, I am back in control of my life and feeling great. Hypnotherapy and Non-attachment therapy address the cause of the unhealthy behaviour. The best things is, no more yo-yo weight or diets. I have made a lifestyle change and have never felt better. I've been sending a lot of my friends, who have struggled for years with weight in to see Lorina. They are thanking me now.”
“My daughter has her life back. After suffering from Bulimia which has caused her to isolate and miss so much school, she is now reconnecting with her friends and improving her grades. More importantly she is feeling good about herself again and looking healthier than she has in years. My daughter found Lorina easy to talk to and said, "She really cares Mum,". I feel like I have my daughter back.. Thank you Lorina.
“My life was becoming smaller as anxiety seemed to be claiming so many of my choices and freedoms. I was house bound and afraid to drive. I hadn't been out with friends for almost two years. I had cut back to half of my hours at work and my decreased income had caused more restrictions in my life. Then I heard from a friend about Lorina and Hypnotherapy. I had several sessions over the course of a few months and am now on just the occasional session, called a "Top up". My life has changed in all kinds of positive ways. I wish I had gone to Lorina earlier. The mind really is controlling our body. I am so grateful to have my life back.”
“My golf game has been a bit hit and miss until I went to see Lorina. Her positive encouragement and hypnotherapy sessions helped me to find my accuracy, self belief, focus and the enjoyment of the game that I have been missing. I'm going from strength to strength. This, hypnotherapy, is my secret weapon.”
“Sleeping issues really do interfere with the quality of your life. I have had problems staying asleep ever since I had radiation therapy. I am not as young as I once was and want to get this sorted so I can enjoy this time of my life without drugs. I plan to travel and was afraid to fly but after my sessions with Lorina, I now send her sms's telling her how much I enjoy my freedom to see the world. It's such a gentle therapy for all ages, even my granddaughter has had a couple of sessions. During these session I just love the relaxation and as a result, the freedoms it adds to my life.”
