    Birthing As Nature Intended with Teresa Van-Zeller

    in Self Help

    About Teresa Van-Zeller:
    Teresa Van-Zeller has been intrigued about the world of hypnosis since childhood, however, it wasn’t until she started her training to become a Hypnotherapist that she realized the incredible potentials of using hypnosis and hypnotherapy to effect change in people.   What was most amazing to her was how easy it was to make changes in life and how once those changes were made, all the other areas of her life improved as well.  Using and teaching hypnosis to help others effect changes in their lives has become her passion.
    After becoming a Certified Hypnotherapist, Teresa was asked to teach the National Guild of Hypnotist’s Hypnotherapist Certification course at the school she had attended.  Soon after, she was  asked to join the faculty and sit on the Board of Directors of the HypnoBirthing ® Institute.  In 2005 Teresa received "The Director's Award" for her continuing service at the Annual HypnoBirthing® Conclave which is one of the highest honors given. She has trained over one thousand parents and HypnoBirthing® Practitioners.  
    After teaching childbirth education for over eleven years and having attended over 100 births, Teresa has taken her accumulated wealth of experience and knowledge and written a book titled "Birthing As Nature Intended", (B.A.N.I.) - a guide to achieving the birth you envision.
    Her childbirth education course: "Birthing As Nature Intended" (B.A.N.I. Classes): is a complete childbirth education program that will prepare expectant parents for the beautiful, calm birth that every expectant mother is entitled to.
