The journey to becoming a parent can often feel like an emotional rollercoaster. When we enter this phase in our lives, the only thing that is absolutely certain is that having a baby changes everything, and life will never be the same again. We talk about the birth of a mother and the birth of a father. Whilst being a parent is the real you, it is a part of you that never existed before. It is a new role requiring new skills and a completely new set of rules.

It is important that women and men have the right support available to enable a smooth transition to parenthood so that they can enjoy the experience with their partner, any older children and their new baby.

This course is designed to equip you as a hypnotherapist/hypno-psychotherapist to assist your clients to:

  • Adjust to their new lives as a mum and dad
  • Empower them to recognise and overcome unhelpful thoughts
  • Gain a sense of control in their lives.
  • Enable you to help them reassess their identity as an individual and as a couple, their life’s goals and what their priorities are.
  • Become ‘good enough’ parents, rather than striving for perfection.
  • Relax into their new role as a parent, whilst also keeping the juggling balls in the air of their individual needs, their needs as a couple as well as the needs of their new baby.

Becoming a parent can be fulfilling and enjoyable. However for some women and men it can a daunting and overwhelming experience. The reality is that, throughout the world, postpartum depression (PPD) and anxiety (PPA) disorders affect a full fifteen to twenty percent of new mothers; and 1 in 4 men can also show symptoms. However these illnesses have, until recently, received little attention from the medical profession, and limited accurate media exposure and social awareness. PPD and PPA can impact on individuals at one of the most pivotal times of life, it is vital that we as therapists empower our clients to recognise and overcome them with appropriate support.

This course will also cover:

  • Postpartum depression/Postpartum anxiety
  • Postpartum obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Postpartum post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Postpartum psychosis
  • Pregnancy/Antenatal mental health

The course includes:

  • Video introduction and closing words from Sharon Mustard, easibirthing and parenting training founder
  • Audio visual lectures narrated by Sharon Mustard, your course tutor
  • Animated and illustrative videos to enhance your learning
  • Hypnosis audio tracks for each section of the course
  • Downloadable manual, full set of scripts and client tools

"I have trained previously with Sharon in the Easibirthing methodology. I love Sharon's rapport as a trainer and I was keen to participate in her Early parenting relationships and post natal mental health course, though I did have some reticence about it being online. I needn't have been worried; the course though online, is hugely interactive. Sharon uses a wide variety of learning styles and mediums to engage the trainee, all underpinned by her lovely and warm nature. The real benefit for me is that it works around my work and family life. Also, it is nice to be able to dip in and out and then back in again as I am a reflective learner. I enjoyed considering the content and applying it to my own therapeutic practice and indeed my own family life (having two very young children myself). And on reflection, the biggest learning is how I am applying to how I support my own family. I would never have been an advocate of online learning, however I have been converted. Thank you Sharon for a lovely learning experience that is so reflective of the kind and genuine person you are." Amy Solon
