Part one: Preparation. Online Birth Module: Taught by a Alex Gould (Midwife) and Sophie Fletcher

Day 1: All non-hypnotherapists (Taught by Sophie Fletcher)

You will learn the history of hypnosis, its applications, ethical boundaries, practical hypnosis, language and voice, visualisation, conditioning, storytelling, suggestion, confidence building and modalities.  There is lots of practical experience, and you will receive a script and tracks before the class to get used to before you come. This day prepares you for the techniques we use in the workshop.

Day 2: Everyone (Taught by Sophie Fletcher)

Start with a body scan mediation. On this day we look at the philosophy underpinning the class, and explore the difference between mindfulness and hypnosis. Understanding how the two work symbiotically during pregnancy, labour and birth is vital in teaching the class. In the afternoon, we begin to look at the class, structure, framework and the format.

Day 3: Everyone (Taught by Sophie Fletcher and a Midwife)

Day two we continue with the format of the class. We often find that lots of practical questions arise on this day as you will be raring to go!

All the people on your first class will be sent a detailed feedback from, so you can help progress and develop your potential! There is support centrally if there are areas you aren’t sure about after the class.

We have a once monthly online meeting with all practitioners led by Sophie Fletcher that can support your teaching as well.
