My name is Gabrielle Nicholls and I am a KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner and clinical hypnotherapist, as well as a former nurse and midwife.
I offer hypnobirthing courses across West Kent and South London, including Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, Maidstone, Orpington, Croydon, Bromley, Beckenham and beyond.
I run a hypnotherapy practice in Sevenoaks, where I live with my husband and bichon frise, Max. I have two grown up children and three young nieces, two of whom I had the privilege of attending their births.
I came to Hypnobirthing having practiced as a nurse and midwife for many years. I have observed first-hand the powerful relationship between the mind and body. As a student nurse, I witnessed procedures performed under hypnosis, and as a midwife I saw the power that being calm and in control has on the birthing process. In my role as midwife, I instinctively created a calm, quiet, peaceful environment for babies to enter the world.
It was when I trained in clinical hypnotherapy and KG Hypnobirthing, suggested by my good friend who is still a midwife, that all the experience and observations fell into place. I felt that I had found the missing piece of the jigsaw. I love teaching KG Hypnobirthing as it enables couples to shed the fears they have learned surrounding childbirth, it teaches couples the tools to facilitate a calm, peaceful birth and thus a contented, peaceful baby. Hypnobirthing is made up of lots of little things when all put together make a big difference, enabling you to have a calm, confident birth where you are in control.
I have been very fortunate to be able to support women and their families at this very special time and I look forward to meeting and teaching you all you need to have the best birth possible.

'I can't tell you how much this has helped me in the run up to our birth. I suffer from awful panic attacks and anxiety and was really struggling with everything, especially the few weeks before the course started. I really didn't believe I would ever be able to relax and enjoy the rest of our pregnancy. But Gabrielle was amazing. My anxiety levels have gone way down and I've been really practising the breathing techniques and listening to the scripts and they are genuinely helping. My first son was born prematurely at 34+4 weeks and we had a pretty traumatic birth but I'm now genuinely calmer in the belief that this birth will be calmer and a completely different experience.'
'Gabrielle was a wonderful instructor. She exudes warmth and positivity and created a lovely calm, safe environment. We thoroughly enjoyed the course, Gabrielle made it fun and we learnt so much. We felt really comfortable asking lots of questions and I feel that Gabrielle’s background as a midwife was invaluable as she was able to give us so much information and guidance. Of all the things that we did to prepare for our baby this was by far the most helpful, useful and fun. We would definitely recommend it.'
