About me

My name is Karen Hayward and I am a multi accredited, experienced, fully insured, professional Clinical Hypnotherapist and Smoking Cessation Therapist, with a special interest in trauma, anxiety conditions, confidence issues and pain reduction. I am passionate about the benefits of hypnotherapy and the help it can provide.  I am also a Mental Health First Aider and Mental Health First Aid Instructor.

I offer a multi-disciplined approach in my therapy sessions using hypnotherapy, BWRT, B.L.A.S.T (similar to EMDR helping clients with PTSD / Trauma / Abuse), OldPain2Go - a wonderful methodology that removes old, unwanted pain messages, without the use of hypnosis and EFT.

My interest in complementary therapies began many, many years ago. I have had hypnotherapy a number of times, the first time around 30 years ago when I decided to overcome my crippling phobia of spiders. My children also had hypnotherapy, as did other family members, all with great success.

I can help with a whole range of issues; smoking cessation, weight management, pain management, anxiety, phobias, performance, PTSD, sleep to name just a few.

I have clinics in both Pickering (at the GP surgery) and Helmsley (Bondgate Clinic) and also offer hypnotherapy over Skype. Home visits can also be arranged.

Friendly, professional and caring - helping you find your smile...


Training, qualifications & experience

I studied a degree at Anglia Ruskin University before moving to North Yorkshire approximately 18 years ago and I am currently living in Ryedale. I am committed to continual personal development and study extensively to ensure my skills are relevant, up to date and in line with current thinking.

In addition to training as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I have also trained in BLAST and offer life coaching, often bringing hypnotherapy into my life coaching sessions.  I am also trained in BWRT (Brain Working Recursive Therapy) and am a member of the British Brain Working Research Society.
