Elka Williams

Certified Hypnobirthing Practitioner


I am a certified KGHypnobirthing practitioner, experienced coach, mentor and founder of Sophrosyne Birth (formerly The Lovely Birth Company).  


KGHypnobirthing is a complete and proven antenatal preparation which supports you in achieving the birth that you want. Pregnancy and birth should be the most amazing and joyous of experiences. But today for many, sadly, this is also a time of huge anxiety.


This KGHypnobirthing course will provide you with all the information on how the female body is designed to work. We will signpost the options available in all different circumstances and provide the knowledge, tools and techniques to release fear and empower both mum and birth partners.  You will have the confidence to question and work with medical caregivers to understand the options available and make decisions which you feel comfortable and supported with.

A full KGHypnobirthing course includes approximately 12 hours of teaching but will vary depending on the format selected. I offer small group classes, friends* or private sessions for those who require a more tailored, individual approach.
