Hi, I'm Sonia Wilkinson, founder of HypnoBump and proud mum of two delightful teenagers.

I was thrilled and excited about being pregnant. I reslished the prospect of becoming a mum and enjoyed two natural, relaxed and pain free births. Childbirth for me was a positive, humorous and empowering experience. I couldn't wait to hold my babies in my arms and even now, when I think back to each of my births, a warm smile comes to my face.

As a Hypnobirthing Practitioner, my aim is to enable as many birthing couples as possible to enjoy comfortable, confident and relaxed birthing experiences.

What qualifies me to help you?

As a graduate member of the British Psychological Society, I hold: a BSc (Hons) in Psychology; a Post Graduate Certificate. in Social Science Research Methods; A Post Graduate Diplopma in Psychological Research Methods and an MSc in Psychological Research Methods. I am also an Associate Member of the Royal Society of Medicine.

I trained as a Clinical Hypnotherapist through Hypnova Training, with Professor Ursula James, one of the UKs leading hypnotherapy practitioners. I gained my Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma in 2011 and am a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

Once fully trained, I undetook specialist training to become a Hypnobirthing practitioner under the expert guidance of Katharine Graves. I am a member of both the Hypnobirthing Association and of AIMS. I was also fortunate enough to have undertaken my Doula training with Liliana Lammers and the world renowned obstetrician, Michel Odent.

As part of my MSc I carried out a research project which investigated the teaching and use of antenantal self hypnosis techniques and how these impacted on the ways in which mums rated their birthing experiences. My research provided me with valuable insights into how mums felt about their birthing experiences and most importantly, ways in which their varied experiences could be enhanced.

In addition, I am a Licensed Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming®, trained by the co-founder of NLP, Dr. Richard Bandler and the excellent trainer, John La Valle. I am also a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist in training, with student membership of the BABCP. As a CBT Therapist, I also have experience of working with a diverse client base in a variety of settings (including an IAPT service; a school counselling service and the charity, Mind).

When you train with HypnoBump, your wellbeing is my focus.

I'm passionate about providing women and their partners with evidence based techniques that can really help them to maintain their relaxed state during pregnancy and facilitate a comfortable birth.
