About me

I'm Karena, a Rapid Transformational Therapy®️  Practitioner, Hypnotherapist & EXPERT Manifestation coach. I use my extensive knowledge and skills to help ambitious people, who feel stuck & lack courage and motivation; to gain skills & techniques that they need to make LASTING CHANGE. So they wake up in the morning feeling HAPPY and FULFILLED!

  • Do you procrastinate?
  • Are you feeling stuck, unhappy, or unfulfilled with your life?
  • Have loads of ideas but never put them into action?
  • Want to overcome your fears, doubts, or habits that are holding you back?
  • Want to heal your mind, body, and soul to create positive changes in your life?
  • Feel like you're on a hamster wheel, going around in the same cycles; creating the same behaviours in money /career / relationships but don't know how to get off the wheel?   

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are in the right place! Welcome to my hypnotherapy and coaching practice, where I help you heal and transform your life with the power of your subconscious mind. 

Is this you? 

Have you ever driven down a road for 5 minutes and realised you weren't paying attention to the road? It's because the subconscious mind knows how to drive, so you do it on AUTO-PILOT! 


Can you relate?

  • "Fed up of career. Bored, feeling like "THERE HAS TO BE MORE TO LIFE THAN THIS!"" But not knowing what to do.
  • "I hate what I see, when I look in the mirror".
  • "I feel stuck, repeating the same patterns in dating and relationships but not knowing how to change"
  • "Over 40, so I feel TOO OLD to change.
  • "IN DEBT with no way out!"

NONE OF THESE ARE TRUE! It's just the story you're telling yourself.

I know because this used to be me!

I was 39 when I was divorcing. Suffering with depression, alone & feeling unsupported; I was a single Mum in debt, I hated my job & struggling to feel good about myself. I couldn't find the motivation to exercise and didn't have enough money for a deposit to buy a home by myself. I was in deep DEPRESSION. 

After finding coaching and hypnotherapy, I managed to turn my life around in a matter of weeks and DRASTICALLY changed my life in a matter of months. I now happily help others all over the world to do the same! 


Apart from doing a massive amount of self learning & starting my own business; one of the changes I manifested was the EXACT soul mate partner I had scripted about; and I helped Zoe to do the same.

At 44, Zoe was a single Mum. She came to me in February '23 for help, saying "I've never had a healthy relationship but I know I need to change things because I don't want to end up like my Mum: Single, lonely and grumpy!" - Zoe had 3 RTT(R) sessions with me, then decided to join my group manifestation coaching course a month later. By April '23, before the 6 week coaching had even finished, she was already in a loving relationship with her ideal partner, had given up drinking alcohol and was LOVING LIFE!" 

Or Julie, who at 51 was a Mum of a Special Needs child. She wanted a new career but didn't have the confidence to apply or interview for one. She came to me for help and I suggested just 3 RTT(R) sessions. The result was incredible! After session 1 she applied for a job she thought she would never get, yet just 2 days after the third session, she was offered her perfect job with perfect hours!

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Money problems.  
Manifestation and Law if Attraction.
Fertility and pregnancy


Free initial telephone or online session

Additional information

Fees dependant on circumstances - individual sessions or discounts for 3 sessions. It is extremely rare for more than 3 sessions to be needed in Rapid Transformation Therapy (R) for each individual issue; however, I provide 7 session blocks for those who are looking for transformations in more than one area of their life.

How is this linked to the subconscious mind?
In the subconscious part of the mind (95% of the mind), we create "thoughts" or "beliefs" which we carry through our lives. These "stick" in the subconscious EITHER from 1) repetition (what parents or teachers are constantly saying to you); or 2) when you have a traumatic event, or an emotional response.

The majority of the subconscious mind is created between the age of birth and 7 years old (before the brain is fully formed, so it makes up pieces of the puzzle to fill in the unknown blanks).

Decisions made as a child, then create the belief system and behavioural patterns that you live by throughout adulthood. 

This means that most of the mind is MADE UP STORIES controlling you and your behaviours! 

NLP and RTT ®️ work to recognise these beliefs and transform them, in order to transform your life.

What is RTT®?
World-leading Therapist Marisa Peer says: “Rapid Transformational Therapy® (RTT®) is the award-winning therapy that combines the most beneficial hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, NLP, CBT, and neuroscience principles. RTT® continues to grow in global recognition and has proven to be one of the most effective therapies available for achieving fast and permanent results.

Rapid Transformational Therapy® (RTT®) offers unparalleled results by harnessing the most powerful healing potential on the planet—the mind. It goes beyond hypnotherapy training to provide a complete solution-based approach to achieving fast results that last.”

These limiting beliefs can prevent us from being in peak health and fitness, and hold us back from achieving our highest potential. As a RTT ®️ Practitioner, taught by world-leading Therapist Marisa Peer; I help my clients to access the subconscious mind by regressing them back to moments where they first created a belief; and then work through transforming that belief.

What to expect:

I chat to my clients for 20-25 minutes before the session starts to ensure we are focusing on the right issues. I will then put the client into hypnosis for just over an hour, where I will regress them back to past events (usually 3-5 scenes/events) to find the root cause of the issue. Then we will do a transformation. I will create a personalised recording for you to listen to for 21 days following the session to embed the new belief.

What is it like? 
Hypnotherapy is a form of relaxed meditative state. You will be completely aware and in control of what you are doing, but will be in a very relaxed state and able to access the subconscious mind to find answers that the conscious mind doesn't hold. 

Where do the sessions take place?

I currently only offer online sessions (usually over zoom), which allows you to be in the comfort of your own home. As a session can make some people feel tired; this means you have all of the same benefits as an in-person session, but with the ability to completely relax and not have to think about travelling home after the session. 
Please note that each session can take up to 2 hours.

Please note that due to high demand and the high level of INTEGRITY and ethics I follow; I am only able to move forward in supporting those people who I really feel are TRULY ready to transform their lives.

In addition, hypnosis is not suitable for anyone who has suffered with epilepsy or any form of psychosis. This means occasionally, I may decline to work with some clients that I do not feel are ready for this. If this happens, please know this is for your highest good.
