“Catherine used the rewind technique with me to address a trauma that had happened almost 20 years previously. I found the technique comfortable to use, despite having to think about the previous trauma, and I believe this is down to Catherine’s calm and confident manner – I felt safe in her hands and trusted her.
The most amazing result was that I can now do things and go places I haven’t been able to face all this time, it has literally changed my every day life. A lovely bonus was the sense of calm that it restored in me and how it has managed to settle down my underlying sense of anxiety. I sleep much better and feel much less ‘tightly wound’. Would highly recommend and would definitely use again.” Kate
“The care and support I received from Catherine was kind, compassionate and individualised to my needs. Communication throughout and the after care/follow up sessions were fantastic, I found these very helpful! I would recommend Catherine and the personalised services she provides to my friends and family!” Amy
“I was hopeful that ‘rewind’ would help and within three days I felt an overwhelming relief from symptoms that have dogged me on and off for a long time. Thank you Catherine.” Bee
“Being able to talk openly about how I had been feeling since my daughters birth and miscarriage without feeling like I was being judged. Feeling understood and supported. Feeling much less anxious about childbirth and being able to look positively to the future.
I really enjoyed working with Catherine, she was easy to talk to and be honest with how I felt from my past experience, I felt that she really listened to me. Catherine was supportive, kind and I felt that she understood how I felt, which is so important. The aftercare was excellent, Catherine has offered lots of advice, and from the work we have done I now feel much less anxious and much more positive and excited for the future which is the biggest compliment that I can give. Thank you Catherine.” Sarah
I was recommended Catherine by one of my friends who undertook the hypnobirthing course with her and found her and the course really helpful. I went ahead and booked the course with Catherine. And I am glad I did. She was able to fit me in at short notice and I only had about 4 weeks till my due date. She was able to tell me whether I would have enough time to practice the hypnobirthing. It was a little tight but we were able to complete the course in the timeframe that would allow me and my birthing partner, my husband, to be able to practice. Catherine was very patient, friendly and approachable. We felt comfortable and were able to ask as many questions. In between sessions she would keep in touch with us to see how we were doing and if we had any questions.
The day came of my labour and I was able to use the breathing techniques and go through in my mind some of the positive affirmations from the course which really helped. I only used TENS machine at the beginning and gas and air for the most part of my labour and at the final stage I didn’t use any form of intervention. I gave birth to a beautiful daughter. The labour was a long one as I started getting early contractions a good few days before I went in which gave me sleepless nights. I would focus on my breathing and I would read through some of the relaxations from the course. Luckily Catherine worked in the hospital we were in and she came to visit and meet our daughter. It was all a lovely experience.
I would definitely recommend KGHypnobirthing especially Catherine.
Meagan and Ben’s feedback.. birth story to follow!
My partner and I did private KG hypnobirthing/ antenatal classes with Catherine on zoom. We loved how knowledgable she was about the birth processes due to her midwifery experience. We were also very grateful for the individualised approach and her patience with my partner’s medical aversion. Catherine has the perfect calming voice to read scripts and we often drifted off during them. The classes made my partner feel more confident about our decision to go for a homebirth and his role within the birth process. Catherine is extremely supportive of informed consent and choice and we look forward to using what we’ve learnt with her during our birth.
“A caring, listening ear, and good resources and advice for helpful services. I can’t think of anything to improve! Thank you for providing these services!” Jane
