Karen Breeze BSc(Hons), DipCHH, GQHP, DipSCS, CertNLPS, DT
My name is Karen Breeze and I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Certified Hypnotension Practitioner, Smoking Cessation, PTSD/Trauma Specialist, Occupational Stress Management Consultant and GHR Acknowledged Supervisor.
I offer a confidential, caring and professional service, and as we are all uniquely different every therapy session is tailored to meet individual needs of my clients. It is difficult to predict exactly how many sessions a client will require to resolve presenting issues but you can rest assured that by working together we will achieve goals in a short a time as is practically possible.
I adopt a multi-modal approach in my practices and treat a wide range of issues. Hypnosis is a proven effective treatment where calming, non-intrusive techniques help to bypass your conscious to overcome many problems, during in which a client remains in full control, has total awareness but in a deeply relaxed state. Whether you wish to eradicate unwanted habits or behaviours, to find relief from specific emotional issues or to simply have more confidence in your daily life, as a qualified therapist I can help to bypass your conscious mind to overcome the source of presenting issues.
To make positive changes in your life please feel free to contact me for an informal no obligation chat to see, how we can work together to achieve your life changing goals.

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
