Mums Retreats

A day of relaxation, pampering and social time for mums

Whether you are a new mum or a mum of a preschooler being a parent is tough. I often speak to mums who feel depleted. They spend all of their time caring for their baby that they forget to care for themselves. Mums only retreats give some care energy and time back to you. You will leave feeling engergised yet relaxed, valued and supported. 

Our Mums only retreats are held on Saturday’s in our beautiful venue in Cobham. The retreat includes relaxation techniques using the wonderful Hypnomothering method, a hand or foot massage, lunch and snacks, time to talk to other mums and other relaxing activities. 

What is HypnoMothering?

HypnoMothering is a class for mums to be, new mothers, and mums of young children. Developed by two hypnotherapists, each a mother of twins, this fun, practical class teaches mothers easy and fast self-hypnosis techniques to  make the most of limited sleep, keep calm and balanced on challenging days, and find focus and mindfulness amidst the myriad of feelings that mothers face.

How is Self-Hypnosis Helpful for Mothers?

Rapid Relaxation: Hypnosis provides easy to learn techniques to quickly relax mum’s body while creating mindfulness and balance.
Positive Emotional Resources: Quick self-hypnosis techniques allow mothers to tap into positive emotions even on difficult days.
Hypnotic Time Distortion for Sleep: Whether you have five minutes or five hours to catch some rest, hypnosis helps your mind and body make the most of the sleep you have.
Connection to BabyHypnosis helps a mother tune in to her baby and her own natural instincts.

Topics covered in class:

  • Self-hypnosis to relax and find balance and calm even on very stressful days
  • Easy techniques to shift perspective and take the sting out of tough emotions
  • Introduction to hypnotic time distortion to super charge a power nap
  • Fresh strategies for creating and flexing with motherhood’s “new normal”
  • Learning to tune in to your baby to enhance bonding and mother’s intuition
  • Coping confidently with the pressures of differing parenting styles presented by friends, family, etc.

How HypnoMothering Came to Be

HypnoMothering’s developers, Kira Dorrian and Tracy Adams, are each clinical hypnotherapists who are also mums of twins and childbirth educators. Over time, Kira and Tracy began to notice a pattern in the stories from the new mothers they worked with in their HypnoBirthing classes. As these women transitioned into their new role as “parent”, each woman seemed to have a unique experience with a broad spectrum of emotions that ranged from total elation at her new life to complete despair. Seeing the need to equip moms, Kira and Tracy created HypnoMothering — extending tools used in their hypnotherapy practices to moms to be, allowing women to prepare for and engage in the experience of motherhood as gently and as joyfully as possible.

When and Where?

The next Mums only Retreat will be held in Cobham on Saturday 14th September from 10am – 3pm. The day includes relaxation, a mini massage for mums, lunch and snacks and other relaxing activities. Spaces are limited to 8 mums.
