Hypnobirthing Kidderminster In the Local News

I was proud to share my hypnobirthing and reflexology registered practitioner status in the local Kidderminster news papers in February 2016.

ready to help transform the nation’s health

The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care has reported to Ministers that 63,000 health practitioners stand ready to help transform the nation’s health.  Local Reflexology and hypnobirthing practitioner, Joanne Carthew based in Kidderminster, is now proud to be one of them.

Joanne explained: ‘As a CNHC registrant I am proud to be part of the health and care workforce and agree that we do have an important  role to play in this new approach to health”

Harry Cayton, the Professional Standards Authority Chief Executive, stated that we need to look for new ways to deliver care fit for the 21st century. He called for people in charge of health and care services to use a wider range of occupational groups, including complementary therapies.

He said: “The NHS is re-examining the way it delivers services and is exploring new models of integrated care better-suited to today’  He continued: ’.....we no longer have to depend solely on doctors and nurses but can create broader multidisciplinary teams. We must invest in prevention and wellbeing to deliver healthcare for the 21st Century. The complementary therapists registered with CNHC are among the health practitioners who have a key role to play in this new model.”

The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) is an Accredited Register and Joanne Carthew is registered with them. Joanne commented: “I am passionate about promoting local people’s wellbeing through reflexology and hypnobirthing. I have been working within the community for many years and welcome the opportunity to be recognised as a valued therapist by the CNHC. I particularly enjoy maternity work and feel privileged to work with many pregnant clients at such a special time in their lives”

The accredited register enables people to choose therapists with confidence knowing they are competent, professional and safe. To find out more about CNHC visit: or call 020 7653 1971.

Breathe Holistic Therapy is working with the Hand on Heart charity to raise money for life saving defibrillators. These will be distributed to local high schools.

Why do we need them? Over 250 children die in British schools each year form sudden cardiac arrest. 80% of those children had no known illness. I found this shocking, and as a mother I wanted to know every child would have the best possible chance of survival. Having access to a defibrillator gives the child a 75% chance of survival, without one their chances drop by 10% every minute they wait for the ambulance.

Sainsburys in Kidderminster also felt this was a fantastic charity to support. On August 6th we joined together and raised £182.67 simply by using our therapist Jo's Olympic torch! Photos in return for a donation was great fun and many local people were thrilled to hold the torch and get a picture.

baxter collegeFundraising will continue over the next months and hopefully life saving defibrillators will soon be in our local schools.  Baxter College has already received their defibrillator and other schools should soon follow.
