Hello, I’m Marie Linton at Essence Hypnobirthing. I’m trained in two methods of hypnobirthing, The Mongan Method and KG Hypnobirthing. I’m a Midwife (retired) with over 25 years of experience and a Hypnotherapist. I’m also trained in the art of Swedish Massage ( I.T.E.C.). I live in Kingston Upon Thames and cover South West London and all areas in Surrey.
I’m currently teaching a private tailor-made Hypnobirthing course in the comfort of your own home. Perfect for busy couples who prefer flexible sessions and privacy.
I’ve had positive natural births with both of my own babies. They’re strapping teenagers now living very full lives which allows time for me to share the amazing benefits of KG Hypnobirthing.
During my midwifery career, I’ve supported many women choosing to do hypnobirthing in a variety of settings, obstetric units, the birthing unit, and at home including water births. It’s such a privilege to be present and support couples during this transformative time. I’ve had a long career as a midwife working in both the public and private healthcare sectors. Having this ‘inside knowledge’ I’m able to help you navigate these healthcare systems, which ensures you achieve the best possible birth for you and your baby.
While living in Sweden I was introduced to the practice of meditation and started to feel the benefits of quietening my mind. My general health and outlook on life improved dramatically. With this focus on the power of the mind and body connection and my love of supporting women, I trained as a Hypnobirthing teacher in 2011. I went on to teach couples while living in Sweden and Dubai, I’ve taken these skills around the world with me making a difference to couples whatever their circumstances. Fascinated by the ‘hypnosis’ part of hypnobirthing I went on to training as a hypnotherapist with world renown hypnotherapist and Author Beryl Comar.
As you’ve probably guessed, I’m quite obsessed about all things related to birth. Over the years I’ve attended heaps of birth related courses run by global birth educators, resulting in a big bag of birthing skills and info which I’ll share with you during the course: Spinning Babies, gentle massage techniques, mindful breathing, birthing positions and Rebozo to name a few. All of the birth information I share is based on up to date evidence based research
I offer a highly personalised, bespoke hypnobirthing course. If this is something you’re considering, please get in touch and arrange a free, no obligation, taster session
Looking forward to hearing from you.
