Rob WoodgateThey also hold the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) which is the first nationally accredited hypnotherapy qualification, awarded by the NCFE National Awarding Body.

Both are members of the UK’s National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) who promote the highest standard of training and professional ethics amongst its members, and who share strong international links, including the US National Guild of Hypnotists.

Heidi was Editor of the Gravesend and District NCT newsletter, and an active member of the NHS Maternity Services Liasion Committee at Darent Valley Hospital. Rob was the Editor of The NCH Hypnotherapy Journal.

On a personal note, Heidi and Rob used Blissful Birth techniques to prepare for the birth of both of their own sons, and then during labour.

Using the techniques, Heidi found her labour to be very manageable, she felt in control throughout and it was a very positive experience.

Rob played a very important role during the labour, fully supporting Heidi, encouraging her and re-enforcing the preparation they did together before the birth.
