Welcome to East Kent Hypnotherapy
My name is Karen Russell-Graham. I am a qualified clinical hypnotherapist offering an individual and creative approach using methods based on the latest research. Whatever problem you wish to address, you can be assured that at all times you will be listened to in confidence and with empathy.
The first step is to email or pick up the phone and make contact. I offer a free initial discussion without any obligation. If I cannot respond immediately, I will be in touch as soon as I can.
People often understand that hypnotherapy can help with a problem, but are not sure how or why. Our conscious mind is only a tiny part of our whole mind - just the tip of the iceberg. Most of what we are, including all of our experiences and knowledge, is stored beneath the surface in our unconscious. How we think, act and feel can be affected by recurring patterns of behaviour, buried thoughts or beliefs and learned experiences.
All this makes sense - but it is possible to make changes. Our brains needn't be 'set', stuck in a pattern that is no longer helpful to our desires and ambitions. Instead we can become open and receptive to change.
Make a Change
Hypnotherapy is beneficial for so many things, some of which are listed here:
* Weight loss
* Performance (public speaking, sport or specific conditions)
* Pain control
* Phobias (animals, heights, flying etc)
* Self confidence and esteem
* Sleep problems
It is also a brilliant way to learn to relax - something that is increasingly hard to do in a busy world. Taking responsibility and making a start is positive and empowering, and could 'change your tomorrow'.
Sometimes we feel as if we are stuck in a maze, or that unknown obstacles are preventing us form making the progress we desire. Are you ready to take control and change tomorrow?
Training, qualifications & experience
When I experienced hypnotherapy I discovered first hand the clarity and focus it creates to help solve a particular issue. Most importantly - it worked.
- Clinical Hypnosis Certificate of Personal and Professional Development
- Associate Member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
- Fully insured.
I have since studied at post-graduate level at LCCH (London College of Clinical Hypnosis) and my experience includes education, creative communication and counselling - extremely useful tools for working in hypnotherapy.

- The initial session is 1.5 hours and will cost £65.00
- All other sessions are generally 1 hour long and will cost £65.00
- Agreed extended sessions of 1.5 hours: £75

I have found that effective hypnotherapy uses a creative mixture of techniques which might include Counselling, CBT, NLP and Psychodynamic work. Listening to your needs is the most important part of working together, and I look forward to hearing from you.
"I found your sessions to be calm and reassuring, especially for someone who had not tried hypnotherapy before. I was impressed with the way you explained things for me to work on in my own time as well."
"Thank you so much.. this has been really helpful to me."
Just to let you know that the treatment you gave me on 10th March, 2015, has worked!! Well done, and thank you, as I really did not think I could ever give up smoking, but you certainly put me on the right path to success.
I have already saved £160.00, which is now going towards my holiday fund.
Again, a big thank you."
