Are you pregnant?

Ok, so I’ve had two babies and I can’t even discuss the trauma of my first son. I had the most horrendous birth and felt totally disempowered and out of control. I was scared of the birth the whole way through my pregnancy. When we decided to have another baby I KNEW I was not going to have the same experience. Enter hypnobirthing….

My second son was born within 20 minutes of arriving at the hospital in a hurried, but completely calm manner, where I felt fully in control and able to do exactly what needed to be done. There was no screaming, swearing or hating my husband! I cannot describe how different these births were, how different the recovery was and what a different mental state I was in, before, during and after my second boy arrived. It’s unbelievably¬†amazing.

What’s New?

So, it’s a crazy, wonderfully busy time here at Mind Matters. The big news is that I’m moving premises! I’ve been in the office at Station Road Business Centre for 3 years now and it was a wonderful place to work. However, I’ve always wanted to work from home and as many of you know, in July we moved house. One of our reasons for choosing this house was that there was garden space for an office for me, and so we’re in the middle of a heap of building work to get this ready. It’s almost complete and I’m super excited! This means that my waitlist time, however, has increased and I’ve had a month or so where I haven’t been seeing clients. I’m dying to get back to work!

In other news, I have brought in another therapist to help with the workload, and to see clients that can’t get to my available sessions, as I’m definitely not able to be as flexible with young kids. Amy Mayfield currently works as a therapist in the NHS, has heaps of experience, lives in Clowne too, and is generally a wonderful woman! I’ll be posting a bio page for her soon for you to have a nosey at!

I’m in the huge process of overhauling this website so there may be broken links and dodgy formatting. I’m working on it, but I didn’t want to take it down in the meantime. I’m working on uploading a heap of blogs that I never got round to publishing and creating a freebie page full of useful stuff for you to download!

If you want to get in touch in the meantime, drop me an email at and I’ll get back to you asap.
