.When I came across Karen's practice online,I had reached breakdown point & was signed off work for many months mid 40's. Over 30 years of trauma had caught up with me, something that general Medication/CBT/ Talk therapy didn't seem to be able to touch on .I was very hesitant about trying EMDR & Hypnotherapy. Yet took a leap of faith towards the Holistic approach.Karen has been too many words to describe over the past 8 months- deeply understanding, a coach, direct, positive, very caring, took a personal tailor made approach to our sessions, with guidance work in between, not intimidated by subject matter.I would highly recommend working with her. She became a light for me at a very dark time. More...

I came to Karen with a lot of anxiety, panic, depression and past trauma and thought that nothing could help. After a lot of work with her we have got to the route cause and used many different strategies and I can honestly say she has completely saved me and given me better quality of life. Forever grateful for the work she has done!! More...

I came to Karen as a timid bud and I now feel like I've blossomed into a full flower of confidence and positive energy. Karen is wonderful with all sorts of situations life can present, both past and present and by the end of any session, you've moved one step closer to achieving your goal for a more positive and self compassionate life. I couldn't recommend her enough and I can't thank her enough for the wonderful work that she does with the amazing amount of passion put into it. More...

I cannot thank Karen enough for the guidance she has given over the past 6 months. So experienced in her field. There is so much more to karen and her skills than hypnotherapy -outstanding counsellor

I went to see Karen following a difficult divorce while suffering severe depression and anxiety. She offers a safe, calm and nurturing environment to work with you using a range of techniques that I found extremely beneficial. I also saw her for coaching and she helped me decide on a career change that suited my personality and desired working style. I am in a much better place now and working towards a fulfilling career which I am very excited about! I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking therapy for a range of issues. More...

I was in a bad place when I first contacted Karen, struggling with separation anxiety and abandonment issues, it was killing my otherwise happy relationship and making me miserable. After only a few treatments Karen helped me to work out the root cause of the problems and work on the causes rather than just talk about the problem. The therapy was very intense, hard work and emotionally draining but I always felt comfortable and at ease, working at my own pace and most importantly in a very safe environment. I have seen a vast improvement in myself and I am now able to work on my issues by myself, with an open offer from Karen to return anytime I need too.Karen is a true professional in her work even down to the fine tuned details of patients privacy at changeover times, ensuring there is time between each session for each patient to leave and arrive separately.

I had several sessions with Karen to help with my alcohol dependency. She was very professional, understanding and reassuring and gave me the tools required to make changes in my life. I would not hesitate to recommend The Hitchin Hypnotherapy Practice. More...

I was getting to the point in my life where i found myself at rock bottom with my anxiety attacks and leading to depression where it was leading to excessive drinking and i thought it was time to get professional help. I found Karen and i found that she was very welcoming and great to work with.She helped me find my true self and helped me get back my self acceptance.I now don't even think about touching a drop of alcohol and i can now deal with tough situations that occur in my life and i am now in control of my life.I can now walk down the street with my head up high and feel like i fit in with society again.Thanks again Karen.

I was at my wits end with issues that were unknowingly effecting certain areas in my life and had done so for many years.Then I found Karen ... it was so hard at first to allow deep set rooted insecurities to be drawn to the surface but boy what a difference it has made.She has helped me so much..EMDR being the main treatment.And although she said I had done the hard work I cannot have done it without her.I would recommend Karen 100% More...

Karen was very welcoming and put me at ease. Each session was tailored to my needs that day but also allowed for progression from the previous meetings. She is kind and considerate at the same time as being efficient and professional. I am very grateful for the time we worked together and was able to take advantage of Karen's different qualifications to work on a variety of techniques. Great level of service. More...

I decided to contact Karen after suffering several episodes of depression and anxiety. I had been taking medication and tried tradition talking therapy with limited success. Going to my first session I was very worried about meeting a new person and explaining my issues but Karen made me feel totally at ease and I felt I could tell her everything. Karen was very understanding and made me feel confident we could overcome my problems together. She had a different approach to what I had experience before and gave me so such great advice on different aspects of my life that would help me overcome my depression and anxiety. She always made me feel at ease and I think the relaxed atmosphere at her home helped the whole experience. I could not recommend Karen enough. During my time with Karen she has helped me turn my life around from one that felt like waking up and going through the motions with no enjoyment to one I really do enjoy and appreciate. So glad I decided to contact her. More...

Karen has a wonderful ability to make you feel calm and safe and to put you straight at ease, even when discussing the most difficult of topics. I personally found her techniques to be extremely effective and would have no doubt in recommending her to my friends and family.I particularly benefitted from her treatment for panic attacks which I was able to utilise when my son was admitted into hospital (I had a huge fear of myself or my children being ill following a previous traumatic hospital experience.)

After some unpleasant s*xual experiences, I had trouble fully letting go and couldn't reach orga*m. I was worried about this and felt anxious as it was very much my psychological problem. Karen's work solved the issue for me and I can't recommend hypnotherapy enough. Karen's use of language was crucial in allowing my subconscious to let go. Amazing result and would fully recommend Karen. More...

This lovely lady really helped me conquer my flying fear and subsequently heights, and as a side bonus I conquered my fear of driving on the motorway as I stopped feeling so panicky all the time! Karen also helped me with binge eating disorder. Karen is very welcoming and very easy to feel relaxed with her. I highly recommend her. More...

I would recommend Karen to anyone! She is such a lovely lady and helped me with lots of issues such as anxiety, health anxiety and anger. We did some hypnotherapy and also just general councilling. I didn't think hypnotherapy would work and didn't 100% believe in it but went based on a recommendation and honestly can say that my whole life has changed. Thank you Karen x More...

I contacted Karen to help me manage my emotions on my wedding day. It turned out that I was suffering from stress related anxiety as well as some historic bereavement issues. Karen's techniques really helped me to reduce both my stress and anxiety levels, resulting in my anxiety attacks completely disappearing. My wedding day was still very emotional, but I felt far calmer having been able to use Karen's relaxation methods. She really is a true professional who demonstrates wonderful empathy and really helps you get to the root cause of your problems. I thoroughly recommend her, More...

When I went to Karen I was not in a good place at all, I can honestly say she has helped me and picked me up in some ways. Karen is so understanding and easy to speak to, she helped me see that their is hope for me. I feel that Karen goes beyond her work as she still checks in on me to see how I am. Karen is very talented and her techniques she used on me are unbelievably effective. If i was to seek guidance again, I would always choose Karen. I feel I cant thank her enough. More...

Thank you so much for this wonderfully kind and generous review . I loved working with you and am so pleased you are in a better place now. You deserve the very best ..so go get it! X

I have an extremely sweet tooth and a love of cakes - Hitchin Hypnotherapy - changed the way I look at food. As opposed to comfortably eating the whole cake I can now have a small slice and be totally satisfied. My mind-set towards food in general has changed and most of all I have now lost weight. So big thumbs up to Hitchin Hypnotherapy. More...

Massive changes thank you. Not only that but I feel so much more positive than I have felt in weeks. I'm focused and just feel happier in general. Any anxieties I had have totally left me and I feel more confident in my decisions. I can't thank you enough, I think maybe your a secret fairy or something that has worked her magic. I can't believe what an hour difference has made. More...

Q&A

This is not just a job; for me it is a vocation. I am helping people become happier and healthier, reaching their life and wellness goals, and making a living at the same time. Developing my knowledge and skills constantly, and independently deciding my own direction and focus. Love helping people to be their personal best.

To do things my own way after working in a Corporate environment in health for 25 years. I had always been in a training or training management role, which included coaching senior leaders...for 25 years. I always felt I would eventually work for myself.

I personally believe I have quite a unique approach to helping my clients, and this is mainly due to my ability to work with both parts of the human mind: the consciousness and sub-conscious . I am told I have strong emotional intelligence and notice things about people which others don't seem to take on board. I am also told by clients that they've tried everything else available and no-one has been able to help them resolve their issues, but I do not find this daunting. I have a strong track record of successful outcomes with my clients...helping them become happier, calmer, more focused and in control, and more authentic.

Why not read what my clients have said on the Testimonials page of my web site, for a view outside my own? Or google my name or my businesses to see what people have said about me on yell.com and other free ads type software?

I offer excellent value for money, and treatment plan discounts to help my clients afford the therapy they need. My Practice offers home from home warmth and comfort, and I am told that I am non-judgemental, intuitive and highly effective at what I do.

There's parking for your vehicle in front of the Practice here and the last part of the journey through the village of Pirton is often referred to as part of the therapy!
