I'm Catherine Lee, a Hypnotherapist and Reflexologist based in Hamilton, offering Hypnobirthing classes throughout Lanarkshire and Glasgow.
I have two grown-up children aged 27 and 20. I know from experience how a great deal of intervention can occur during the birth of your baby, and I am passionate about empowering women and their birth partners to have the most positive birth experience possible.
Both Hypnosis and Reflexology are great for your wellbeing during pregnancy, and after going for Reflexology sessions myself, it helped me so much that I decided to do the training course. For 5 years, I was the in-house Reflexologist for a large, local insurance company, offering relaxation therapies for the staff. I gained a lot of experience with many clients over the years in that role.
That experience led me to an interest in all kind of self-help techniques, particularly how using the power of the mind can help you to make positive changes. I decided to train as a Hypnotherapist, so that I could help my clients to overcome difficulties such as anxieties, fears and phobias, and transform their lives.
I like to support women during their pregnancy because in both my Reflexology and Hypnotherapy practices, I've seen for myself how my clients can benefit from learning to relax deeply, let go of worries and anxieties, and build a positive mindset. Pregnancy is a time when these skills are particularly valuable as the birth approaches, and so I decided to add to my professional experience by training as a KG Hypnobirthing teacher.
In the work I do teaching Hypnobirthing classes, I enjoy seeing women and their Birthing Partners become more calm, relaxed and confident about labour and birth, feeling that they're working as a team, and the skills they learn in my course continue to help them to bond, once they become parents.
I have a BA in Medieval History, as well as being a registered KG Hypnobirthing Teacher, a Member of the General Hypnotherapy Register, and a registered Reflexologist with the International institute of Reflexology. (IIR).
I also hold a BA Degree in Humanities from The Open University.
I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you in the future.
