About me

I am a solution focused hypnotherapist working with clients both in person and online.

Solution focused hypnotherapy offers the best resources available combining the use of psychotherapy and hypnosis. By using well researched strategies together with a structured approach it enables you to make positive long lasting change within a relatively short period of time.

By setting achievable goals your self-confidence, self-esteem and motivation increase improving your coping ability which enables you to move forward positively creating change by focusing on the present and future.

Helping you to overcome mental, emotional and physical challenges by using the latest research in neuroscience, psychology and hypnosis, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is beneficial for a wide range of clients with each session uniquely tailored to you.

I hold an enhanced DBS and am fully insured to work with both adults and children.  I am a Member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH), The National Council of Hypnotherapy (NCH) and Registered with The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNCH).  I also assist with lectures at the accredited Clifton Practice of Hypnotherapy Training School Manchester.

Further information

I have listed some client testimonials which I hope may help you.

"Karen has been so wonderful and supportive.  Having never tried hypnotherapy before I didn't know quite what to expect but Karen explained things so well and provided such detailed explanation which was easy to understand!  Yes you have to put some work and focus into it as well but after a few weeks I definitely started noticing the benefits and felt much calmer each day.  Things that had previously caused stress I now found were more manageable.  Hypnotherapy is like taking a deep breath in and letting it all out on a permanent basis"  Thank you so much!" Kim F

"After my hypnotherapy sessions with Karen I am now sleeping better and have a more relaxed outlook.  I now remember things from the past in a new and positive way" Anne T

“Life became so busy and demanding, a certain time of life didn’t help either.  I lost confidence and a sense of direction. I knew where I wanted to be but couldn’t find the way.  Karen’s guidance and support throughout the sessions and beyond, helped me find the path back to the “Old Me” or should I say the “New Me “. There’s no magic wand, its work in progress but I now have the capability of feeling positive again in moving forward”  Steph H

"I am in a much more relaxed state of mind.  Whereas previously I felt embarrassed when speaking to people and often avoided social contact the sessions were extremely pleasant and I cannot speak highly enough of Karen's personality and positive reassurance.  The trance work we did helped me relax and improved greatly my sleep patterns which has a positive affect on my day to day confidence and well-being.  I would highly recommend any person with issues rooted in self confidence to contact Karen because I am sure she has the knowledge to advise and the sessions can transform anyone's life" Tony T
