Client Testimonials

Client F:

I decided to try hypnotherapy after suffering with anxiety for a number of years. I had tried other methods of treatment but felt like I wasn’t getting anywhere and needed to try something new. I had not tried hypnotherapy before and was quite skeptical about it. My anxiety meant that I was struggling in social situations, travelling to places and being able to do my job effectively. Karen  was recommended to me and going to see her was the best thing I ever did! After having a number of appointments, the results have been overwhelming. I am back to my old ‘normal’ self and can do things without a second thought, when previously I would have been crippled with anxiety and would dread occasions that should have been enjoyable. I was nervous but Karen is such a warm, genuine person and made me feel completely at ease and safe. I would highly recommend her.

Client A:

“Hi Karen, the exam actually went really well! All the questions came up that I wanted I had a minor panic midway through but I had my Rosemary (NLP Anchoring Technique) so I managed to keep calm and together. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for helping me through the last stretch of Uni. I never thought I’d be in a position where I could walk out of an exam feeling happy! Thank you so much for everything.”

Client S:

“Hi Karen, thank you this is really  helpful (sent an exercise to client on day of her exam) I used it before my C1 exam and I really appreciate you sending this. I used the Spinning Wheel technique and the Havening Technique before and during the C1 exam. Both techniques made my panicking subside and the paper went well! I really appreciate your help, I could not have done well on that paper without your guidance. Many thanks.”

Client M.

“Thank you for helping me to re-frame my personal context and change my life. Something within us responds to people who level with us. There is official truth and ground truth. How wonderful to start experiencing ground truth. Before we learn, we must unlearn. Empty the cup. I needed trust and security and no conditions to start the process. Small steps! With appreciation and gratitude.”

Client B.

“Hypnotherapy has given me a greater understanding about myself and others, and the space to work through my most difficult memories and experiences. It’s also empowered me to change my own behaviour and have much healthier and happier relationships than ever before”

Client C.

” You have really helped me in what I feel was such a short of space of time, I can’t believe how much more positive and better I feel – I don’t know what I would have done without your help!”

Client D.

“I started seeing Karen because life felt very difficult . I couldn’t even tell you why, but life seemed too much to deal with, and I didn’t want it to be. It is hard to explain what has changed, or how, just that now life doesn’t feel so impossible. There wasn’t a magic cure, Karen just helped me to develop the skills and confidence to believe in myself and change the way I was thinking. Now it feels like there are things to look forward to and be excited by, I have started to live, rather than just exist.”

Client J.

I am very grateful to Karen for her personalised approach, and for helping me to regain confidence, particularly in my communication and presentation skills. Being the first time I had tried hypnotherapy, CBT and NLP, I felt like I was in safe hands with Karen, who made me feel at ease and was there to answer any questions I had throughout.”

Client P.

“Thank you so much for helping me to overcome my fear of water which has been an obstacle for a large part of my life. When I first asked I had no idea the change that would come from within me as a result of you and your ability to talk to my subconscious. I am finding that I am more confident in a number of areas of my life. The tape you did especially for me is of great benefit when I have had a stressful day and your voice really relaxes me and calms me. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services in the future”.

Client D:

“Just thought you’d like to know that my presentation went well, to nearly 70 people in the end. No notes and some good feedback too. Had a few negative demons in the morning of the meeting but with your help I knew how to squash them so thanks for everything. I can’t say I will ever enjoy presenting or will look forward to it, but at least I now know I can do it……….!

Thanks again

Client P:

“Karen was a pleasure to meet with. Her attitude was extremely positive and encouraging.Working with Karen has cleared some issues which had been terribly limiting and I am continuing to notice improvements everyday.The therapy was very personal and I always felt clearly understood and in control of my own goals.I have also learnt some interesting things and would thoroughly recommend.”

Client J:

“I went to see Karen for hypnotherapy treatment as I had been suffering from an increasing claustrophobia problem which had meant I suffered severe anxiety attacks in lifts, low underground car parks, on an airplane and in other confined spaces. I was determined to beat it but my own attempts at overcoming it through exposure to the problem were not working.

Karen’s treatment left me feeling very calm and aware of my ability to stay calm in previously stressful situations and I am happy to report I got on a plane to Greece in the summer without any feelings of anxiety at all. I remembered how I used to feel but did not experience the feelings. It was fantastic and liberating! Thank you Karen! ”

Client C:

“I started to see Karen after I was told I needed to have an MRI scan for an ongoing problem.  On the day of the scan I  couldn’t go through with it due to a combination of claustrophobia and a fear of not being able to “escape”.  Karen quickly put me at ease on our initial meeting and the recording she did for me was wonderful (I am still using it now if I feel stressed and need to relax).  After only a couple of sessions with Karen and listening to the recording every day I managed to have an MRI scan and whilst I won’t say I wasn’t a little apprehensive about it, I knew that the feelings I was experiencing were absolutely normal and more importantly I had an inner confidence that I could manage these feelings and all would be fine.  I have found the hypnosis sessions fascinating and will definitely be seeing Karen again soon for some more help with other issues.”

Client A:

I have found the session with Karen to have been very beneficial. I didn’t really know what to expect having had no prior experience of hypnotherapy but Karen’s warm, caring style eased any fears very quickly. At no point did I feel out of control or vulnerable, I felt relaxed and most importantly confident that Karen placed the same level of importance on the issue I was describing as I did. The results have been very rapid and I’m very glad that I took the step I did.

Client J:

I can’t thank you enough for helping me find what is truly important to me. You have shown me how to build the confidence to live without a crippling fear of judgement, and to simply enjoy life like I never had before.

Client G:

“I am very pleased that I recently ‘took the plunge’ & decided on Karen for hypnotherapy treatment. I’ve had a fear of flying for many years, despite travelling by plane very frequently. I have also become anxious when skiing, feeling very tense on more difficult slopes. I had 3 sessions with Karen, after which I felt so relaxed when I flew recently to the French Alps for a family skiing holiday where I then felt much more confident & in control on the ski slopes. I would urge anyone who has similar concerns or phobias to contact Karen who is very patient & understanding & her therapy works.”

Client C:

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for your support and kindness over the last few months. I feel I have really benefitted from your expertise.

We did perspective in my art class last night, and it reminded me of how you have helped me put things in perspective too!

Thank you for listening to me and laughing with me.”

Client H:

“I started having counselling sessions with Karen because I was in a relationship that had led to anxiety and depression that meant on many days I couldn’t face leaving the house or talking to anyone.  It had been bad enough for long enough that I knew I needed to seek some help to overcome it.

I worked with Karen for over two years as that’s the time it took me to reach the point where I had had moved my life and way of thinking on to a place where I could cope, trust my own judgement again, enjoy the things I used to enjoy and ultimately, decide to end the relationship.

It’s difficult to find the words to explain all the ways Karen helped me.  Therapy is a personal experience and will be different for everyone, but I cannot thank her enough for her kindness, warmth, skill, gentle humour and for asking some probing and challenging questions, but never pushing me when I didn’t yet have the answer.  The best way to sum it up would be to say that when I went to her, I was stuck in a tiny box, knowing that I was missing life, but really not sure I could get out.  Now I’m back in the world, living.”

Client N:

Just wanted to drop you a line, to say I’m continuing to keep my perky head above water.  The time I spent with you, seems to have enabled me to exhume a lot of the negative feelings & anger I’d been carrying around, so now can just get on with the present & the future. I’m no longer dwelling on the past. So once again wanted to say I appreciate your help & for listening to my verbal vomiting!!

Client C:

I did’nt know if anyone could help me. I was feeling angry and upset every day and did’nt know how to change my feelings. My Mum found Karen through a recommendation and I knew after my first session that she understood me and that I could trust her. After 4 more sessions my anger is almost gone (I’m not quite ready to give it all up) and it rarely comes in my mind. I don’t know exactly what Karen did, but I know she offered me a safe place, guidance and support and a different way of thinking. Thank you Karen.

Client C’s Mum:

Karen has been a star. She has changed C’s perception and understanding of situations that were causing him pain and he is much happier, more settled and able to move forward. I cannot recommend Karen enough.
