Alison’s interest in hypnosis began in the 70’s while at university. When Alison fell pregnant in 1982 with Michelle, she read a book called ‘Childbirth Without Violence” by Frederick Lobbyer. It inspired her to try to find a hypnotherapist to support her during her labour. Whilst she couldn’t find someone willing to do this, using her own skills, she had a great, 6 hour labour.
In 2002, when the first HypnoBirthing Practitioner training came to Melbourne, she was front and centre and has been teaching ever since.
