Hello, my name is Claire Norris and I'm the founder of CLN Therapy and CLN Hypnobirthing. I am a mum of four and I have experienced four very different births. I absolutely love hypnobirthing because my introduction to it was a personal one.

I discovered hypnobirthing while expecting my fourth baby way back in 2011, and it completely transformed things.

Since then I have worked with hundreds of women & birth partners to help them towards a better birth experience.

I have been specialising in Pregnancy & Birth since 2013. I originally trained with Natal Hypnotherapy and Maggie Howell, on a course accredited by The Royal College of Midwives. I have since taken specialist training in Hypnotherapy for Pregnancy & Childbirth with The Hypnotherapy Academy. I am a fully qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor & Hypnotherapist. I am a BWRT (Brainworking Recursive Therapy) Advanced Practitioner & Transformational Coach. I am an Accredited Professional Member of the National Counselling Society - a register of Counsellors that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. I am a Founder Member of the British Brainworking Research Society: the society is committed to further research into the neuroscience-based therapies for the speedy and effective resolution of psychological and emotional distress. I have achieved the International Advanced Diploma from Essex Institute, enabling me to be considered an Advanced Professional Practitioner in the field of Psychotherapy. I am a registered Professional Hypnotherapist with Hypnotherapy Directory. I am a member of The Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy. I am a member of The National Register for Psychotherapists and Counsellors. I have an honours degree in Health Studies and have completed extensive continuous professional development in areas such as stress, anxiety & phobia.
