Award Winning Clinical Hypnotherapy from a world leading Specialist. 01484 485380
After a major car crash in 2001 I suffered from major anxiety, I went to see Karen after a friend told me about her. After a half hour chat she sent me back to my GP asking for my diagnosis to be checked and sure enough she was right, I have PTSD. Karen did the one thing others didn't, she listened, and once I had the correct diagnosis she helped me overcome the PTSD with EMDR and Hypnosis. Life has been very different for me this past year since that treatment and I am VERY grateful to Karen for all her help, she is very skilled and helped me when I thought no one could.
I have had a severe dental phobia for a number of years now and to be quite frank I was a complete mess when I had my first session with karen due to a very much needed dental appointment coming up that I needed to keep. Karen was very good and calmed me down but the amazing thing is after just
two sessions I was not only able to keep the
appointment but actually felt calm before, during and after it! It was an awkward wisdom tooth that needed removing and I even went ahead without the sedation that
had been offered. I feel this is a mini miracle and would not hesitate to recommend Karen to anyone who feels they need help with anything. Jayne
When I was in my early thirties I told my future husband that I was too old to change.
Karen has been able to show me how to use hypnosis to re-programme myself to avoid negative / harmful reactions to any given situation and to replace these with actively positive reactions. I now say no-one is too old to change the way they react to anything. My life is now mine thanks to Karen and I would recommend anyone reading this who may be worried about taking that first step - don't be, Karen is a true professional in her
I have tried to stop smoking several times for many years without much success. It is now over 4 months since I last smoked and I can say that I haven't missed it one little bit. I have no idea how or why it has worked and to be frank I am not one who normally believes in this type of therapy. However - facts are facts and there is no denying the fact that I actually feel like a non-smoker now rather
than an ex-smoker. Thanks Karen.
I contacted Karen, when I needed dental treatment, and was just so scared about going. When I made the initial call to Karen, she put me at ease. When I first met her, I felt really relaxed in her company, she made the whole experience so easy! After 2 sessions, there was much improvement in how I dealt with going to the dentist. I went back a different person, I was completely calm. A year on, I returned to the once dreaded dentist, for a filling-no problems at all. Karen taught me Self Hypnosis, which is useful for all kinds of things, and I do use it all the time. I stopped biting my nails, almost over night-that was a lovely surprise!
Karen is just a lovely person with an incredible gift, which she passes on to improve other peoples lives. She loves her job, you can tell! Thank you Karen for all your help and support, when I needed it. SUE F
After 4 failed IVF cycles, my husband and I were starting to lose hope, then I came across Karen's website, it really made me think. The IVF treatment had really taken its toll and I was feeling low and very anxious about the next and final cycle, we decided that even though we were a fair distance away, we would use Karen's programme to help us with the next cycle. I could not believe the difference, I felt so much calmer and more involved with the process, I was even able to use hypnosis during the collection and also the transfer and felt so much better prepared for it. When the pregnancy test result came back positive, it was a dream come true for us, our baby is due in May.
Thank you Karen for your help and support, we feel that your help made the all difference.
Our beautiful baby boy was calmly breathed into the world at 4am on the 12th of May. The midwifes were amazed
at how my husband and I worked together and how calm and relaxed I was. Every couple should know about, Hypnobirthing, it was one of the most fantastic experiences- I really could only feel pressure, no pain and no fear and my husband was able to help mm through out. The midwife said she had never seen anything like it before with no pain relief, I pointed out to her that I was using pain/fear relief I was Hypnobirthing. I would recommend Karen’s Hypnobirthing class to any expectant parents, she is a lovely person and really knows her stuff!
Jodie Knapton- I had a fear of flying which gradually got worse each time i flew. I did manage to get on the plane and fly but it ruined my holiday. The week before i flew was a nightmare, i felt nervous all week and the last week of my holiday was ruined thinking of flying home. I wanted to get married this year and both myself and my partner wanted to get married in New York which meant a 7 hour flight!! At the time of booking i was fine, however, as the date got nearer the fear and panic came back, I contacted Karen about a month before i was due to go to New York after she was recommended by a friend. I was a bit dubious as i had never used a treatment like this before but i did not want to take tablets in case it made me ill for my wedding day.
After 3 treatments i was ready for off. Even after the treatment i still thought there was no way that anyone would be able to take away the horrible feeling of dread i felt when i was on the plane and the doors closed, however, once i was on the plane and sat in my seat i felt strangely calm. The plane took off and and i was on my way with no panic, dread or fear. The flight was fine.
Catherine and Steven Hill- We have a beautiful baby girl - Sophie Grace.
Weighing in at 7lb 7. She arrived on Saturday night after only 9 hours of labour (unfortunately I was induced, but only with the prostin gel). I used the breathing
& visualisation (opening) technique the most and I'm positive this helped, although I did find the last hour (before the pushing) painful rather than uncomfortable (so had a little gas & air....but not much!) I then made hospital history by pushing her out stood up on the bed (apparently no body has ever
done that!) Overall - a good experience and I would do it again tomorrow. Everything is going well (think we are still on a high though!) and we're enjoying
Dan Greenway- I have had IBS for 12 years, I have had countless tests and several medications nothing worked apart for immodium which I swallowed like sweets. My GP suggested Hypnotherapy and pointed me in Karen's direction. I didn't think it would work but I looked it up on the internet and found loads of information saying that hypnotherapy works well for IBS so decided to give it a go. I had 6 sessions and I haven't touched an immodium for 9 months (I used to take up to 8 a day). I was really surprised at the science behind hypnotherapy (no panpipes or joss sticks). I don’t know why this wasn't available to me on the NHS, but at a total cost of £600 to get my life back seems more than reasonable to me. I would recommend Karen to anyone, she is down to earth and not at all what you would expect from a "therapist"
I was unfortunate enough to find myself on one of the tube trains in the London bombings but very lucky to have got away with only minor injuries. I returned home to the north and did my best to get on with life, except I couldn’t. I had nightmares, flash backs, I felt anxious and worried all the time, I couldn’t think and had this terrible guilty feeling of why did I live when many others didn’t. My GP was excellent and supportive, I had a course of medication and CBT, but I just felt worse and the flash backs got worse and I suffered with panic attacks. I heard of Karen through a friend, I called her and made an appointment. Karen explained to me that it wasn’t the flash backs themselves that were causing the problems but the emotion attached to them, we worked with EMDR (a very odd process) and worked with hypnosis too. I no longer feel guilty or anxious, I feel like I have a 2nd chance, I have made other changes in my life too. Thank you Karen for your help and support.
