‘The most important thing I learnt is that we have the right to question suggested interventions. Katy has an excellent style and I felt very at ease. Katy was inclusive of me as the father, not just centred on the mother. No question felt like a stupid one. The personal approach made it a perfect environment for learning.'

'Katy has a friendly and approachable manner and speaks from her own personal experience of using natal hypnotherapy. She is also a midwife, so knew why things were done for my last labour. Due to this she has empowered me to be more assertive this time round. She has a good voice for hypnosis, very similar to Maggie’s (Maggie Howell, founder of Natal Hypnotherapy™ and voice on CDs) which is helpful when I am used to her CDs.’
'Katy was very knowledgeable, approachable and credible. I felt we had a good rapport and she tailored her examples to match my previous experience. Her tone was very soothing in hypnosis. I think Katy will be a fantastic practitioner.'

'Katy used her learnt hypnobirthing techniques during the births of both of our boys, and I was amazed at how in control she stayed, even when things didn't happen the way we planned. Any intervention was minimised and she was in such good humour throughout it made for a very special experience for us both - and for her mum and our midwife!'
