Sophie Fletcher

Sophie Fletcher is a clinical hypnotherapist, doula and hypnobirthing practitioner. She lives in Lincolnshire and works in London, Surrey and Grantham.

One of the UK’s leading clinical hypnotherapists for pregnancy and birth, she is Fellow of the National Council for Hypnotherapy.  Sophie regularly gives talks, lectures and training on how mindfulness and hypnosis can improve your life.

Her first hand experience of hypnosis in 2005, led her to train as a hypnotherapist and since then her practice has grown from strength to strength, she works one to one with people on a regular basis, increasing confidence and well-being by tackling challenges and blocks in their lives.  Some of the issues Sophie works with are phobias, pain management, insomnia, anxiety, confidence, sports performance and addiction.

A well known expert on hypnosis for pregnancy and birth, she has seen thousands of women through her programme of birth preparation who are taught by an elite group of health professionals across the UK, and Australia.

“Hypnosis is a comfortable and familiar state of mind.  It allows you to quickly and easily remove blockages that have stopped you reaching your full potential. Hypnotherapy can be a life changing and powerful experience that can help you discover the emotional freedom to live your life the way you want to.”

Sophie Fletcher and Mindful Hypnobirthing

Sophie founded Mindful Mamma in 2008 with her colleague Mia Scotland, a clinical psychologist and doula.  The one day  mindful hypnobirthing class is designed to make hypnosis more accessible to women and their partners and to take an evidence based approach to hypnobirthing.  Their aim was to make sure that women were able to use hypnosis to increase their confidence and have a positive experience whatever type of birth they had.

In 2011 Sophie trained with Michel Odent as a doula, and integrated this practise into her work as a specialist doula with mindfulness and hypnosis. Her first book Mindful Hypnobirthing is published by Vermillion.

Sophie now runs private Mindful Hypnobirthing sessions in across the UK and give talks, training and lectures on mindful hypnobirthing. She lives in the Vale of Belvoir, with her husband and two boys,  and works in London, Surrey and the East Midlands.

Sophie is registered with the National Council for Hypnotherapy and The Department of Health recognised, Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. (CNHC)
