Quit Smoking

By the time most people think of using hypnotherapy to help them give up smoking they have tried many other methods: nicotine patches, nicotine gum, will power and self help books. The problem is you will be always fighting against your sub conscious mind. At Hylands Hypnotherapy I teach you how to use your own sub conscious to assist you to stop smoking.

Weight Loss

Most often we know why we are overweight, over eating, eating the wrong foods, comfort eating, lack of exercise, etc. With hypnotherapy you can address the problems in your subconscious mind and change the way you eat and exercise day by day, without having to go back to dieting, ever.

Conditions Treated

Hypnotherapy is particularly effective for treating stress, anxiety,and panic attacks, because at its core hypnotherapy is based upon reaching a relaxed state.

It is also great for: Quitting Smoking – usually achieved within one session, Weight Control/Loss – normally requiring 3 sessions with 3 weeks breaks in between, Insomnia, Shyness, Fears and Phobias, Public speaking, Interview Techniques, Sports Performance- particularly improving technique and self confidence.

NLP trained

Neuro Linguistic Programming is the study of what makes us tick or a toolkit for personal and behavioural change. In other words: How we think, how we feel and how we make sense of everything in life and the world around us to have more choices at times when we might consider we are otherwise ‘stuck’.

Confidentiality and Cancellation

If you need to cancel your appointment over 24 hours in advance then no payment is due. If less than twenty four hours notice is given then 50% is due. If a top up session on the smoking cessation programme is not attended with no prior notice then the guarantee of further sessions is void.

I visited Karen for her help to combat severe anxiety and panic attacks for an upcoming exam. Karen was very friendly and made me feel at ease. The session started with an initial Q&A session and medical history and discussed why I was so worried about the exam. Karen gave me some breathing exercises to use prior to and during the exam as I felt necessary. This combatted the increased adrenaline and immediately had a calming effect when I practiced it with Karen. I underwent the hypnotherapy session and felt extremely relaxed. Following the session, I had no further panic attacks and felt totally calm and on the day of the exam, I utilised the breathing exercises and anchoring techniques to remain calm throughout. I feel that the session most certainly benefitted me as prior to and during the exam, I was calmer than I have ever been! And to top it all, I passed the exam! Thanks Karen!


I cannot sing Karen’s praises highly enough! I am addicted to sugar and chocolate in any form which meant I was consuming hundreds of un-needed extra calories every single day. Karen successfully used aversion therapy on me and I can honestly say that I haven’t wanted or eaten chocolate or biscuits since, that was 5 weeks ago. 2 weeks ago I decided that I wanted to ensure that I never weaken especially as I cruise twice a year and that temptation would send me on a fast downward spiral. Karen successfully hypnotised me and extended the aversion to all desserts and I’m thrilled to say that I still haven’t had anything other than good, healthy food since. I enjoy fruit & veg much more now – and the effects are amazing… in only 5 weeks I have lost 16lbs!! With NO hardship or self-denial, and NO sugar-crash etc. I sleep better too now. In one little hour my life changed and I left Karen a healthier, happier and more positive person. I recommend her to anyone who needs a gentle push with any type of issue – because she really can do it and that means you really can achieve your goals in the easiest and fastest way.
