About me and how I can help you!
Christina Petersen from Joyous Beginnings

Hi and welcome, my name is Christina. I am passionate about empowering, supporting, and educating you through this special time of fertility, conception, pregnancy, and birth.

Through my personal and professional life experience, I came to understand the impact the prenatal and postnatal period has on the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health of a baby and the ramifications this has on generations to come. I use a holistic approach to conception, pregnancy and birth that includes the baby’s experiences as well as those of the parents.



Counselling is a process of talking about and working through your personal problems by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies, increase self-awareness with a goal of facilitating positive change. Professional counselling is confidential and non-judgmental.


EFT is a simple yet powerful stress reduction method which also has been referred to as ‘psychological acupuncture’. It combines psychotherapy and acupressure, bringing together elements of exposure, cognitive therapy and somatic stimulation.


The state of hypnosis is used in Hypnotherapy to bring about change on a subconscious level. It is in the subconscious where our deep emotions, beliefs about ourselves and the world around us are held. The decisions we make are tinted by our subconscious beliefs. Henceforth they shape our lives. 

Birth Psychology

Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology or Birth Psychology is a field of scientific research and observation that explores the lifelong impact of our earliest experiences in the womb from conception onwards through pregnancy, birth and the first few years of life.

“We had an amazing hypno-birth, A. was completely focused the whole time, we used relaxations, affirmations, light touch massage, diffused oil, and many birth positions we learnt.

In the end it was an amazing under water birth with 0 complications. And we got to meet our little man. We owe you this amazing birth experience,


Thank you for everything,”

Couple from Perth
