“Would highly recommend Karen, she has helped me overcome some of my worse anxieties which I have been struggling with for years now in a matter of a few sessions.”

RW June 2021

 

“Week by week Karen has helped me work through some really complex emotions. My sessions came at a fairly critical point for me, and I am happy to say they’ve been fantastic and I feel lighter than I have in many months.

Karen is direct but non-judgemental and as a result this made hard topics easier to address head-on, which I really needed and appreciated.

I’d not hesitate to recommend.”

“I can’t recommend Karen enough she has helped me to get my life back on track after having to take extended leave from work. Previous to working with Karen I had accessed a counselling service through work which was very time limited and did not make an impact in supporting me to deal with my anxiety and depression. Using BWRT sessions to support me to work through previous traumas that were continuing to affect my daily life, Karen has worked a miracle. I am now at a point where I am planning my return to work and looking to the future with a much more positive outlook. Working a front line role with the impact of Covid on my professional practice I really struggled. Thanks to Karen supporting me I feel much more able to adapt my work practice to take into account the changes that this has brought. Without having BWRT sessions and using other approaches I wouldn’t have been able to make these changes as effectively as I have.”

“I was (and still am) absolutely amazed by just how brilliant my BWRT with Karen was.
I was finally in a better place in my life when I reached out to Karen to help me sustain my happiness. I didn’t know much about this type of therapy but honestly… it’s some kind of magical wizardry! I had no idea I could feel this much BETTER than I was already feeling.
Karen is so incredibly kind and understanding and didn’t make me over share the details of my troubles. And she still fixed them. My relationship to those areas of my life have been softened and healed.
I feel lighter and much more in control of my thoughts and feelings now.
Highly recommended. 10/10. 5*
Thank you forever!”

“I started seeing Karen to help me focus on certain aspects of self improvement. After the first couple of sessions I noticed a difference. After four sessions (which is all it took) I feel healthier and happier. I thoroughly recommend Karen to those looking for positive change. Thank you, Karen

“I never thought I would ever feel this normal again”
AB January 2021

 

“After years of feeling anxious about a range of things, but mainly my health, around Christmas I decided enough was enough and I needed to do something about it as it wasn’t doing my mental health any good. I have never done anything like this before so was worried about what it would involve. After our first chat over the phone, and many tears, Karen put me at ease and got me booked in within a couple of days for my initial chat to see where we would go. Throughout my sessions, Karen listened to everything I had to say no matter how small and we always managed to fit in a laugh every now and then. I left each session feeling calm and comforted in knowing that progress was being made. I highly recommend Karen to help with even the smallest thing – it really has changed my outlook on life.”

“I would just like to say a big thankyou to Karen at Hare Park Hypnotherapy. I have recently got myself out of an unhappy marriage and was in a very very dark place emotionally and physically. I could see no way out of the situation I was in, after months of paranoia and mental abuse I had to do something about it for my own well being. When I contacted Karen I was very nervous about doing something like this but Karen made me feel at ease and didn’t judge me at all. In my first session she explained in detail everything that she would be doing, and I felt at ease telling her all my thoughts and problems I was having in my life. Even talking about it was a massive weight off my shoulders. After my first session with Karen I walked out feeling like my head wasn’t going to explode anymore and felt so much lighter and happier within myself. After just 3 sessions I can finally say I am now fully focused on being me and loving myself and I’m in a much happier place now. I can’t thank or recomend Karen enough for giving me back to being me, I’m a stronger person and in a better place than I’ve ever been .”

“Through a friend’s recommendation, I found Karen at a time in my life where I was wading through my own dark night of the soul. I was feeling anxious and having panic attacks at the smallest of upsets after taking a break from working through the COVID-19 pandemic. Having previously never suffered at any length with my mental health, I was completely at a loss to what to do when my normal self-care was not enough to ease my anxiety. In my first session with Karen, she was so attentive to what I was saying and I could really feel that she was seeking to understand what had led me there. Karen is kind, non-judgemental and actively listens. It only took one session of BWRT with her for me to wake up the next morning feeling instantly better. Once the acute mental health symptoms were calmed, Karen helped me look into my past to understand myself better and why I was experiencing this upset. I am eternally grateful to her and I highly recommend her as a therapist.”

“I started therapy with Karen on a weekly basis after a difficult period in my life following a bit of a crisis. She used a technique called BWRT , I was not familiar with it and had not come across the term. I believe it alters the pathways in your brain to enable the brain to evoke a different response than usual to difficult and painful situations.
She is a sympathetic person, easy to talk to and non judgemental. She is very reliable and communicates well. Without me sharing a huge amount of information about me, she very quickly got a sense of my issues and the areas I struggle with.
As our sessions progressed I have become less anxious and feel more in control of my emotions and better able to manage them. I continue to make progress and to feel positive. I do feel the work Karen did with me has made a real difference to my life. I am feeling much more content and happy. “

“Hi karen
Its been a while since I came to see you and thought it would be nice to let you know after our session I first thought it hadn’t worked but then I noticed I wasn’t reaching for sweets and cakes as much now I can have them in the house and not eat them all,I do sometimes have 1 or 2 pastilles but before it would have been the bag have tried this before with another therapist but not worked for me but I think you identified my triggers and its worked brilliant have now lost 2.5 stone since seeing you so thanks for that best wishes Gwen”

“Thank you Karen for helping me with long standing bereavement issues. At last I feel a sense of closure. “
LB October 2020

“I am an emergency doctor working front line in hospitals during the COVID crisis. At the start of the pandemic, I noticed that I was becoming increasingly anxious and negative, when previously I have always loved my job and looked forwards to going to work. After a particularly miserable night shift where I had to tell multiple families that their relatives had died, I found myself coming home and drinking wine at 10am in despair. I felt helpless, noticed unhealthy brain patterns and realised that something had to change. 

I feel very lucky that an advert popped up on my laptop, prompting me to register for free counselling services through Frontline 19. I am so grateful that Karen Preiss then contacted me and provided me with 3 or 4 long sessions. She introduced me to the technique of BWRT, which is absolutely fascinating. Even after one session I felt more able to manage stressful situations and more in control of my responses and reactions. 

Karen’s manner is absolutely wonderful, and I really looked forwards to the sessions during lockdown as each one felt constructive and calming. Even when I was working erratic shift patterns she kindly remembered to check in and see if I felt as though I required another session. I am now really open to different techniques of engaging positive neural pathways, and will continue to try and use the techniques that Karen has run through with me in order to reduce unhealthy stress responses. I have already and will thoroughly recommend this therapy to both my patients and colleagues. Thank you so much for your help and time. “

“I  highly recommend Karen. She helped me with anxiety and self esteem issues using BWRT via Zoom through lockdown, and the difference in me is amazing. I was a bit sceptical at first on how it worked but once I believed in it and what Karen was saying I feel like a new person. Karen is so friendly and nice and I would 100% recommend her to anyone.”

Colette F       June 2020

 

“Definitely recommend. I felt so well after just one session. Wish I’d of done it a lot sooner. It’s weird can’t believe how good I feel. Fantastic will 100% use again if I needed to. Thank you Karen”

“Hypnotherapy works!

After 5+ years of suffering with anxiety and agoraphobia, 2 hypnotherapy sessions with Karen Preiss I am now going for walks and socialising, Thank you Karen!” – Stephen C  Feb 2017

“I had agoraphobia and anxiety attacks i did not leave the house for about 8 years i went to see karen and two months later  I had a job and started going out again she gave me my life back and would highly recommend thank you again”  -Stephen C June 2020 update

 

“I can highly recommend.
Very helpful aftercare also given
Kelly H – October 2019

 

Fantastic service, has really helped me get over some really difficult issues and move on with my life.
Liz R – January 2019

 

I would highly recommend Karen Preiss for BWRT. My daughter is a competitive gymnast and we visited Karen to address some blocks she had on certain moves that she could previously do confidently. 

Karen knowledge gathered all relevant information before the session and then made my daughter feel very comfortable on the day. 

The process Karen used resulted in my daughter doing the moves with ease her first session back at training. 

My daughter even says afterwards “wow it worked, “Karen has taken my fear away”. 

I wouldn’t hesitate using Karen again in the future if we came across similar hurdles.
