Charlotte Keyworth - Hypnobirthing Practitioner & Midwife.

A Two Day Experiential Workshop for Hypnobirthing Practitioners/Birth Professionals - Facilitated by Ruth Olayinka & Nigel Hetherington.

It seems to me that there is still an air of mysticism in peoples views surrounding hypnosis, and I don't just mean the notion of 'mind control' or 'dancing like a chicken' for entertainment purposes perpetuated by media to the general public.  Nope.  I'm actually referring to many birth professionals who already use or are in contact with hypnosis on a regular basis.

You may already be a very competent Hypnobirthing Practitioners who has, as part of your training, already undertaken a short module in hypnosis - perhaps there has, up until now, been an expectation that for the hypnosis aspect of your course delivery, you rely solely on reading scripts which have been written or recorded by other people.   Or perhaps you are another kind of birth professional  who would love to be able to harness the power of hypnosis and NLP to rapidly and easily facilitate positive change for your clients.

This course aims to demystify 'hypnosis' for all birth professionals and provide you with the tools to continue doing what you already do excellently, yet with additional skills/competence/confidence whilst (especially for hypnobirthing teachers) moving towards more independence in the way you work with your clients.

By the end of this course you will have gained deeper insight and proficiency in:

Script structure / hypnotic language / writing scripts / moving away from scripts / delivery & tonality / hypnotic inductions / self-hypnosis / hypnotic processes / anchoring / re-framing / metaphor.
