Welcome to my site. My name is Terri and amongst other things I own and run Cornwall HypnoBirthing and Hypnotherapy. I live in Newquay, Cornwall with my 7 year old daughter. My background is in Education where I worked for 17 years. I have gained a vast array of experience working with adults, young people and babies. My original background was in the Childcare sector but I moved across to the Education sector in 2001.
In 2012 I gave birth to my beautiful daughter using Hypnobirthing. I had such a wonderful, positive and empowering birthing experience, that it inspired me to train as a Hypnobirthing practitioner myself. I chose the Marie Mongan method of Hypnobirthing because I was a ‘tried and tested’ convert but also because it is the original and only method of Hypnobirthing that has scientific, evidence based research behind it. It is recognised and accredited by the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and is featured amongst their recommended Childbirth Education Courses.
I am also a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist,. I gained my Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy with Mindfield - South West School of Clinical Hypnotherapy and I am a registered member of the GHR.
I run monthly Relaxation Workshops teaching mindfulness, breathing techniques, guided imagery, relaxation techniques, visualisation and more. In 2017 I completed my Doula qualification with Antenatal Wisdom and achieved an Advanced Post Graduate Diploma in Antenatal Education.
In 2019 I trained in the Traumatic Birth Recovery 3 Step Rewind Technique, which is an incredible therapy to help mothers overcome a traumatic birth experience. 2020 brings conversion Doula Training with Badass Birth School, and an LGBTQ+ Compentency workshop with The Queer Birth School.
To support me in my practice I also have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology, Childhood and Youth Studies. Throughout my business and professional practice I work to and adhere to the National Occupational Standards and I hold full, comprehensive insurance through Holistic Insurance Services. I am also a passionate committee member of the Kernow Maternity Voices Partnership - we are a group of volunteers who are working hard to make experiences of the maternity system in Cornwall positive, person centred and inclusive.
I have been successfully teaching the HypnoBirthing course for 6 and a half years and I love every minute of it. I am so passionate about what I do and I love that I can be just a small part of peoples pregnancy and birthing journeys.
The feeling of confidence and empowerment that couples get from taking control of their birth is priceless. Watching a woman/birthing person learn to trust in their body, letting go of their fears, and building on their belief in their ability to accomplish anything they puts their mind to is what makes my job so rewarding.
Please do take a look around my site. If you have any questions do not hesitate to get in touch.
Here’s to a calm, safe and empowering birth experience.
