HypnoBirthing® – Mongan Method has been a leader in childbirth education since 1990 and is now taught in 34 countries around the world.
It is a childbirth educational course designed to empower a woman to have the birth that she chooses. The HypnoBirthing® course educates those that attend all there is to know about pregnancy, birth and post birth. Using guided imagery, visualisation and breathing techniques that not only help to achieve a more relaxed, calm, safe and gentle birth but are also useful to help calm the mind in every day life.
The classes are spaced out so that you have time to practice the techniques you have learnt in class and bring any questions or concerns you have (after practicing these techniques) to the following class. Like learning to drive a car, it is hard to learn by theory alone, we go through all the techniques needed together and practice them numerous times to ensure that by the end of the course, you are well equipped with all the knowledge and practice you need to achieve the birth you desire.

From birth until late teens, the nutritional demand of children is at it’s peak.

About this Event
There is no need to buy mandala colouring books any longer, when you can create your own unique personalised mandalas with no templates or rulers. Historically, Mandalas have been a teaching tool, as well as a reflective practice within many different cultures and religions throughout the centuries.
Mandalas comes from a Sanskrit word that denotes ‘sacred circle’.
Carl Yung (psychiatrist and psychoanalyst) also stated that mandalas signify the essence of the individual, their centre and is a part of the individuation process.
These classes are where you can learn how to create your own mandalas, plus have the opportunity to devote time to your own emotional wellbeing within this meditative, self-reflective, self-soothing, expressive, stress management and centering, fun and artful practice with a registered Arts Therapist.
AUGUST – ‘Drink tea and draw – A mindful and reflective mandala practice’
OCTOBER – ‘Conversation within a mandala – draw out your emotions within a mandala’
