Coaching Through Career Transition

Stacie and her boys

I cannot thank Allison enough for leading me through a life transition and getting me back on the right track.  It is amazing how much our weekly sessions make a difference and bring a clear focus to my life.

During my transition, Allison very carefully led me through my thoughts, examined them, and helped to renew a sense of confidence in myself that was needed to move forward and trust myself.    I can honestly say that what I imagined a perfect day to look like is happening.  I have a better sense of balance and peace in my life, a fantastic new job and more time with my family.    I have a great amount of gratitude for where I am.  I recall during a recent meeting noticing how grateful I was for where I was, the quality of the people I was with, the diversity and the opportunity for learning and new experiences.

Thank you again for being a fantastic coach to help guide me on my journey.

Much gratitude,

Coaching Through the Unique Challenges of the Military Spouse

Rabbia

I have been married four beautiful years and am still learning the art of a healthy marriage.  Coaching sessions with Allison were a refreshing experience in the way that I could open up without being judged and gain a positive personal perspective.  They provided me with helpful step by step questions and tools and to rethink my approach to certain situations.   Not only do I feel more confidant but stronger for the new adventures that are coming our way.  Allison, thank you for everything.

Empowered and Ecstatic Birth

When I gave birth the experience exceeded all my expectations and was one of the most beautiful days of my life!

After the very traumatic birth of my first child I was convinced birthing shouldn’t have to be so interventionist. I was looking for a way to make birthing feel more natural and empowering and HypnoBirthing worked for me. HypnoBirthing made me dedicate time to reflecting on my pregnancy and the birthing experience that I wanted to have. When I gave birth the experience exceeded all my expectations and was one of the most beautiful days of my life!

From Elective C-section to Waterbirth

As the course progressed I let go of my fear, began to trust my body and even started to look forward to a natural birth.

Allison is a wonderful, gentle, supportive teacher and her HypnoBirthing course was absolutely the best way to prepare for my daughter’s birth, completely transforming my expectations and therefore probably my experience of birth. The first time we watched a DVD of HypnoBirthing mothers giving birth, I was astounded and inspired. You have to see it to believe it: the calmness, the gentleness, so very different from how it is portrayed in the media. As the course progressed I let go of my fear, began to trust my body and even started to look forward to a natural birth. This was huge progress for a woman who had been threatening to book herself in for a c-section under general anasthaetic!Practising the relaxation/self hypnosis exercises built my confidence and when the day came, it went wonderfully. Alice’s birth in (lovely warm!) water was a beautiful amazing experience and at no point did it even occur to me to ask for pain relief. I felt relaxed and confident, and everything went exactly as we had hoped, just as I had visualised during the course, and only five hours start to finish! The midwife said it was a ‘textbook delivery’ and we went home six hours later. Our baby Alice has always been a calm happy baby and I am sure this is partly due to the lovely gentle birth she had. I wish all women could do this course.

C-section Is Better with HypnoBirthing

That’s the beauty of HypnoBirthing; it’s highly effective and adaptable to whatever plan you and your partner choose.

My husband and I decided we wanted a HypnoBirthing early on in the pregnancy. As we completed the course with Allison, the gentle atmosphere of the class had us looking forward to and excited about birthing our baby. When special circumstances made it necessary for our daughter to be born by C-section, Allison was there for our journey. Just minutes before they wheeled me into the operating theater, Allison gave me a beautiful HypnoBirthing affirmation. Not only did it allow me to surrender completely to this new birthing plan, it allowed me to release all my fears connected to having a caesarean birth. During the birth I felt such peace that I remember asking the anesthetist if he had given me a sedative with the epidural, ‘No, that’s all you’ he replied. That’s the beauty of HypnoBirthing; it’s highly affective and adaptable to whatever plan you and your partner choose. Thank you to Allison and HypnoBirthing for making our birthing experience a beautiful one!!
