About Clare Hudman

Clare Hudman with hypnobirthing baby

I live with my family in Stroud and practice in Stroud, Bristol and Gloucestershire.

I have been practising as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and as an Advanced Lightning Process trainer for 11 years.  My aim is to empower people to make great changes in their lives.  I believe we all have potential to live much healthier and happier lives.  Over this time I have learnt a great deal about patterns of thinking and behaviour that help the body’s ability to work efficiently and what to do to get them working for you!  It is a natural progression for me to want to help people get off to the best possible start in life and that means teaching expectant mums and their birth partners how to harness the power of the mind to deeply relax their bodies – to help your body to function most efficiently at this most important time.  This kind of work is a joy for me.  It is my pebble in the pond.
