Pickering YO18 & Helmsley YO62

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.

Member organisations


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.

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).

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified


Daytime, evening and weekend appointments are offered. Weekend appointments are at Bondgate Clinic, Helmsley.
