Business overview

The Hitchin Hypnotherapy Practice offering a broad range of emotional and psychological therapies to help you achieve your wellness goals. Karen Kelsey, Clinical Hypnotherapist.

I specialise in working with adults aged 16 and over, and focus on the root cause of emotional problems rather than how to manage symptoms better.

I work with your feelings, beliefs and memories that have negatively influenced your life, using Regression to Cause and EMDR. This means I can work with all types of presenting problem from phobias and addictions, to eating disorders and OCD, psycho-sexual issues, to anxiety and depression to PTSD. Trauma is my main focus and area of interest and I use a wide range of therapies to help my clients become de-sensitized to the traumatic experiences they have suffered. I believe achieving good mental health requires honesty, accountability and responsibility for one's own actions and this needs to be reflected in the therapeutic relationship.

I am qualified and experienced in working with a broad range of issues using EMDR and BWRT Psychotherapies, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Life and Performance Coaching, NLP, Personality Profiling (MBTI), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Parts Integration Therapy to name a few. I am qualified at level 1 in Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT), explained more fully on my web site. I use Self-Compassion and Acceptance Hypnosis and Coaching to help my clients develop an accepting and loving relationship with themselves.

I offer a warm welcome to a relaxing environment in Pirton at The Hitchin Hypnotherapy Practice, just outside Hitchin, where you can feel comfortable to talk in a non-judgemental and supportive setting to an experienced, compassionate, professional.

I am supervised and attend therapy and training regularly myself, so I understand how it feels for you to attend therapy. This allows me to keep up to date with the requirements of my professional bodies - CNHC, APHP, ANLP, BBRS.

Reviews

A wonderful teacher, guide and friend

Karen is absolutely fantastic, I am so grateful of my time with her. With her help and guidance I have overcome and manage panic attacks and general anxiety.

She has taught me how to use valuable tools for self-care, self-compassion and keeping calm in overwhelming situations. I can truly say now I believe in myself and so amazed at how far I have come. Every session with her I felt more calmer, relaxed and even excited for the future.

Karen feels like a teacher as well as a friend. Being positive was always a struggle for me, however now I find myself optimistic almost all of the time which I couldn't even imagine at first. With Karens help I was able to truly understand myself more, my personality and to recognize my own positives which I wasn't even aware of before.

Therapy is exhausting and hard work, but it's so worth it. I feel I am able to cope and support myself with a much stronger mind. And I know Karen is always there for me if I need her.

Karen is a true professional. Can not recommend her services highly enough. Life is a complicated and stressful business. Karen has the wisdom, empathy, tools and techniques to help get those inevitable pressures into proportion leading to a more accepting, peaceful and enjoyable life.

Karen is the true meaning of professionalism, I admit I was a little sceptical at first when I decided to start looking for support in this field and seek help with my issues, but Karen was amazing from the start she helped me and taught me so much with a number of my personal problems and how to cope day to day which got me back on track with my life and I cannot thank her enough.

Karen is very kind professional who helped me in many ways! Suffered of anxiety, never knew the exact trigger, however Karen helped so much. I can handle my “bad days” so much better. After every session, I felt more relaxed and calmer. Highly recommend her!

Light, Understanding, Depth & Guidance when lost....

.
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.
