I’m Laura the Founder of Mind the Parent
I am happy to see you here! My name is Laura Abba, a mother of 2, living in South London. Cognitive Hypnotherapist & Mindset Coach is what I do; and I have created this special space for parents. To nurture their minds to ease the transition into parenthood. But what does that mean? It means being a guiding hand through some potential turbulent times: childbirth, reconnecting as a couple, understanding your new identity, supporting you at work; and making sure that you navigate this new phase of your life confidently and in your best mental possible mental space.
With more than 15 years of experience in the corporate world (telecommunications, oil industry and transportation); it is since 2012 that I have been coaching people setting them for success. Later on, after becoming a mother myself, with the mental challenges that represents having young children is that I start to spend more time working with new parents or parents to be.
In 2019 a dedicated space for parents is born, shaping into what is now Mind the Parent. We support expectant parents coaching, therapy & hypnobirthing and we offer parents workshops, parental transition coaching, and community.

Happy Parents, Happy New Baby
” It was super emotional, a very positive delivery. I had very strong contractions for two days, and I was applying everything we studied. And great, I even got to sleep one of the nights with all those contractions. I remember the time with a lot of love, my husband and I both very happy and making jokes. In the most difficult moments I had my anchors, and one of the most powerful was the smell of jasmine and my husband. It was amazing, everything was so beautiful and precious. Thank you very much for everything really Laura. The breaths were very helpful, and even during recovery from childbirth”
” Taking the hypnobirthing course with Laura was fantastic! She gives you tools so that you can go to labour without fear and with great confidence that everything will be fine. It teaches you different types of meditations and breaths. It helped me transform fear into other sensations. They are tools that serve you beyond childbirth, for your life and have helped me through postpartum! Thanks, Laura!!!”
” Thank you! I was very scared of childbirth after what I went through with my daughter. My second birth was much better despite of some complications; when thinking about it, I remember about it in a positive way. The resources you gave me worked well, the breathings and audios were extremly helpful”
