The journey to becoming a parent can often feel like an emotional rollercoaster. When we enter this phase in our lives, the only thing that is absolutely certain is that having a baby changes everything, and life will never be the same again. We talk about the birth of a mother and the birth of a father. Whilst being a parent is the real you, it is a part of you that never existed before. It is a new role requiring new skills and a completely new set of rules.
It is important that women & men have the right support available to enable a smooth transition to parenthood so that they can enjoy the experience with their partner, any older children and their new baby. As a professional, assist your clients to:
•Adjust to their new lives as mum and dad
•Empower them to recognise and overcome unhelpful thoughts
•Gain a sense of control in their lives
•Enable you to help them reassess their identity as an individual and as a couple, their life goals and what their priorities are
•Be 'good enough' parents, rather than striving for perfection
•Relax into their new role as a parent, whilst juggling their individual needs, needs as a couple as well as needs of their baby.
Becoming a parent can be fulfilling and enjoyable. However for some women and men it can a daunting and overwhelming experience. The reality is that, throughout the world, postpartum depression (PPD) and anxiety (PPA) disorders affect a full fifteen to twenty percent of new mothers; and 1 in 4 men can also show symptoms. However these illnesses have, until recently, received little attention from the medical profession, and limited accurate media exposure and social awareness. PPD and PPA can impact on individuals at one of the most pivotal times of life, it is vital that we as therapists empower our clients to recognise and overcome them with appropriate support.
This course will also cover: Postpartum depression/Postpartum anxiety, Postpartum obsessive compulsive disorder, Postpartum post-traumatic stress disorder, Postpartum psychosis, Pregnancy/Antenatal mental health

This course is designed to enable you to assist clients to overcome extreme anxiety so they can experience freedom from fear of conception, pregnancy or traumatic birth experience
Tokophobia is a pathological dread and avoidance of childbirth. It is a distressing condition which can often be overlooked by medical professionals. As well as specific phobias and anxiety, tokophobia may be associated with depression and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Fear of childbirth is common and more intense in pregnant women who have not had a previous experience of childbirth. Over 20% of pregnant women report fear and 6% describe a fear that is disabling.
Altogether 13% of women who are not pregnant report fear of childbirth sufficient to postpone or avoid pregnancy.

This course looks at how we learn to value ourselves by looking through the eyes of others
If we become parents ourselves, it is like applying a high-powered microscope to our own parenting when we were children. We feel compelled to analyse it. What worked well for us, what didn’t.
We have all grown up with the influence of others especially within relationships with significant others. Positive or negative, they are a part of our history.
This course is built on my experience over 27 years as a therapist. Join me on a journey through psychosocial experience, and how the concepts of epigenetics and neuroplasticity can help our adult clients heal when they did not get what they needed.
Whether you are a student, new or established therapist, it will enhance your skills and replenish your toolbox.

Hypnobirthing Practitioner Training for the Professional Hypnotherapist
Distance Learning via 14 online videos
£69.99
Here you will find an extremely thorough practitioner training for the practising hypnotherapist that wants to work with pregnant women.
All professional hypnotherapists have the knowledge and ability to provide hypnosis techniques for the pregnant women but few have the physiological knowledge and experience of birthing practises to fully educate women. When a pregnant woman seeks out a hypnotherapist to guide her towards a hypnobirth she is seeking far more than hypnosis.
This course will equip you with all the knowledge you need to put alongside your favourite hypnotherapy techniques to run in depth hypnobirthing classes.
In faith that you will complete the recommended reading you will receive a certificate at the end of the course, with the confirmation that you have completed ten hours of CPD.
