Looking after yourself through life changing events, such as puberty, motherhood, menopause, or illness, can be challenging. We desire to thrive, not just survive what life throws at us.
Through regaining trust and confidence in our bodies, with an open mind, seeking answers, we can gain an understanding of our options, helping us take back control.

"XENA has undoubtedly changed my life. I have had the privilege of working alongside Octavia to become the first ever tester of XENA. I started off the journey with many private symptoms and struggles following the traumatic birth of my first daughter, 2 years ago, which were exacerbated when my second was born. I have so far completed phases 1 & 2 and have seen a huge transformation in myself physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. This programme has helped me in every way possible and I can't wait to see the future 'me' when I reach the end goal. It's been easy enough to follow the videos from the comfort of my own home and yet challenging enough to keep me motivated and enthused to move onto the next phase. Thank you so much Octavia, I never thought I'd be able to come this far 6 months postpartum" First mother to trial the postpartum rehab.
“What was a really pleasant outcome from our learnings was just how critical hypnobirthing is for the birthing partner (the father in our case) as it gives you knowledge and tools to be the best partner and advocate for the mother during the pregnancy and birth. Susanna gives so much attention to detail, and most importantly: she truly cares about her clients and ensuring you have the best possible chance of a positive birth experience, and prepares you for any outcome thoroughly. As the course continued, we felt more and more confident and both had an increasingly positive mindset of the exciting event to come. During the birth, we felt empowered and in control, and had such a positive outcome." From a Father who attended Hypnobirthing classes with Susanna
