|Karen is brilliant she makes you feel at ease from your first appointment and gets to the bottom of what you have gone to see her about. I would recommend her services to all my friends.|
20+ year flying phobia .....no more!
|Niki on November 15, 2018 at 21:04:45|
|After suffering from a fear of flying for over 20 years and many attempts of sedatives and “Flying without fear” courses, and a previous hypnosis session with someone else many years ago, Karen was my last hope. I’m happy to say I have just returned home from holiday and have immediately booked my next! I initially spoke with Karen on the telephone to discuss my concerns over my previous failed hypnosis session. I immediately felt comfortable speaking with Karen and felt it was worth giving it a try. I am so glad I did. I came away from our sessions feeling lighter and calmer and as though the weight of many anxieties I had been carrying had been lifted. The pre flight tension never seemed to arise. In flight, my awareness of hearing engine sounds and vibrations never escalated into panic. I felt in control. Karen has given me to ability to calm and ground myself in aspects of life.|

|Karen really helped me with the mental aspect of combat sports, any self doubt was eliminated, I am pleased to say I won my fight and Karen played a big part in that.|
Karen has helped me immensely!!
|Lesley on October 31, 2018 at 18:26:16|
|I went there on a recommendation hoping Karen would help me and she never let me down. She listened and was able to get right to the root of my problem and have been listening to her tapes and feel so much better as a result. I’m not ruling out going again in the future should I need to.|
|Helen on October 25, 2018 at 19:22:29|
|Karen was recommended to me by my hairdresser. I’d ended a long relationship and had just got a bit stuck. My problem was low self-esteem in relationships. After 2 sessions with Karen I was back on track, feeling so much better. I use audio sessions created during my appointment and additional ones downloaded from Karen. They are very useful, reinforcing the consultations. It’s been such a helpful experience.|
Very effective support
|Mel on October 22, 2018 at 11:36:53|
|Karen is a very caring lady who instantly managed to put me at ease (not an easy thing to do with my anxiety disorder!) Love having the sound files to listen to in my own time at home, they really help to refocus my mind at times of stress. I can't thank her enough for her help and support.|
Very friendly and helpful.
|Nick on October 16, 2018 at 11:53:08|
|Karen was a great help and made me feel very comfortable. Would definitely recommend. Very professional|
|HB on October 13, 2018 at 18:08:46|
|Incredibly kind, caring, understanding and empathetic. Literally changed my life would definitely recommend her!|
Highly recommended and certainly beneficial to all who need a listening ear.
|Erica on September 26, 2018 at 15:34:25|
|Karen is gentle and understanding, takes the time to carefully untangle a lifetime of confusion which leads to a massive outbreath and an inner ability to think carefully and slowly. The audio work has been highly beneficial and I am waiting for the perfect moment in the day when I am able to spend 20 minutes listening to her voice once again. I highly recommend Karen as over ten years ago she treated me for a phobia which remains controlled to this day!|
Life changing results
|P on September 24, 2018 at 15:51:13|
|Highly recommended, such a massive improvement after just one session and then the audio sessions have really helped to continue the work. I would not hesitate to return to Karen in the future.|
|Heather Bothwell on September 24, 2018 at 13:59:16|
|Karen was absolutely fantastic when providing me with some hypnobirthing sessions a few weeks prior to me giving birth. Following this, I found the experience of childbirth empowering and certainly not stressful or awful in any way. I would recommend Karen to anyone wanting a positive experience from what is the most beautiful thing in the world to do, to reduce any anxiety prior to the event. Unbelievably valuable.|
|F on September 17, 2018 at 10:53:21|
|I first met Karen when I had a significant needle phobia. She impressed me from the start and after our first session, I was already feeling in a much better place. I took away a recording of our session to help me to reinforce the techniques that Karen had taught me, which I found very helpful. I had a second session with Karen two days before a scheduled immunisation where we reinforced the techniques that she had previously taught me. I was able to have my immunisation with almost no anxiety after only 2 sessions with Karen which amazed me. Thanks to Karen, I feel that I now have many techniques available to me for the future. I would definitely recommend Karen's help to anyone looking for some relief from a phobia.|
Refreshing, positive support. Great value.
|Jon Gandell on September 12, 2018 at 17:02:36|
|A great experience all-round. Karen listened carefully and addressed all of our issues with a relaxing, positive series of sessions. Who wouldn't benefit from hearing good things about the most sensitive areas in their life? And Karen shared the audio recordings of our sessions so that her help continues whenever we need a boost. Would recommend to anyone. How different her approach is to other 'mental health practitioners'. Very refreshing.|
|Henry on September 08, 2018 at 20:01:05|
|Very welcoming and easy to talk to. The audio sessions are great for relaxing after a stressful day. I would highly recommend a session to anyone who has any underlying worries as Karen helps you in understanding it and the possible cause, to overcome it.|
....l still can’t believe what hypnotherapy with Karen has done for me...
|H, Tunbridge Wells. on September 03, 2018 at 13:43:25|
|Without any exaggeration, my hypnotherapy sessions with Karen Martin have been truly life changing. I will stay anonymous so l can be honest. I’m in my fifties now but traumatic events in childhood, and guilt over my brothers suicide meant my whole life has been a lived in a sense of suspended trauma, a rollercoaster of depression, self destructive behaviour and severe anxiety. I’ve spent years crying all night to the point of vomiting at the loss of my beloved brother. Counselling always left me in a worse state. On the day l contacted Karen, l’d been sobbing for 2 days, l was just desperate to gain control of my emotions, it affected every area of my life. I still can’t believe what’s happened to me since. I got in a state on our last hypnotherapy session and somehow Karen helped me to stop crying and calm down. I didn’t know it then, but on that last day something dramatic happened to me, to my thinking and to my emotions. l’ve been calm and in control ever since, I still can’t believe it, l walked out of that last day as a different person. There’s still the pain, grief and sadness but l’m more rational about it now. I’m able to see it wasn’t my fault, l couldn’t accept that before. l still listen to Karen’s tapes on down days, they still happen, but they really do keep me positive. l cope much better with everything now and I’m much more stable emotionally. As counselling hadn’t worked, l was a bit sceptical about hypnotherapy, but now, l only wish l’d met Karen years earlier as her help has given me a life l feel is worth living. I apologise if l’ve bored anyone to sleep, but for anyone who feels they're struggling with something and might benefit from hypnotherapy, l can’t recommend her skills highly enough, as l will be forever grateful to Karen for what she’s done for me.|
Hypnotherapy that really works
|Emslie on September 01, 2018 at 09:16:05|
|From the moment you meet Karen she puts you at ease, it was like no other help session I had been to. It really works and you get recordings you can use going forward. This was life changing for me. Her advice is non judgemental, but really helpful. Everything can be discussed and you feel the session is led by you, but she makes notes and the hypnotherapy reveals her understanding of what behaviours need addressing. I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen to my friends/family and will always contact her if I find I am struggling again. I have never felt better, so confident and have the tools to cope going forward. If you are reading this, book your appointment today as you have nothing to lose and everything to discover.|
Kick the habit forever!
|Sara on August 08, 2018 at 15:50:57|
|It’s been four months since I saw Karen to stop smoking and I can honestly say hypnotherapy has been the easiest method I have tried - no cravings, mood swings or feelings of temptation! The session is really in depth, Karen has a very relaxed manner which makes the whole process really comfortable. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!|
Highly recommended. Fantastic results.
|Anonymous on August 02, 2018 at 12:33:19|
|I had suffered years of chronic pain and anxiety. Karen put me at ease immediately, with her understanding and down to earth approach. I could never have imagined the positive results that occurred in such a short time. I can now live pain free and get back to living my life. The personalised recordings provide a fantastic tool to speed up and support the process, which were included in the session. I would highly recommend Karen and wish I had found her years ago.|
|Andrea on July 19, 2018 at 17:46:39|
|I've had fantastic results from the very first session; my mood and perspective have improved dramatically which has enabled me to be proactive and positive in enacting changes in how I approach life and experiences. The audio tapes have also been a useful tool in developing myself and managing my anxiety and general mood. I cannot recommend Karen highly enough!|
Well-rounded, realistic support for anxiety and confidence issues.
|CM on July 16, 2018 at 18:50:40|
|I am so grateful to have been introduced to Karen. She offers such well-rounded support and advice in a down-to-earth, realistic way. She's able to get to the root of the problem and look at it from all angles. The ongoing support she gives in audio recordings helps you to get even more lasting value from sessions. I thoroughly recommend Karen if you are suffering with anxiety or confidence issues. She gives you the tools to take back control of your life.|
Karen makes you feel relaxed and is easy to talk to
|Claudia on July 14, 2018 at 00:24:17|
|Karen is a nice lady. Very intuitive. She makes you feel at ease very quickly and is easy to talk to. I liked her very much and will see her again.|
Wise, sympathetic, but most of all practical!
|Anonymous on July 12, 2018 at 11:00:07|
|Karen takes time - there's never an eye on the clock - and she talks as well as listens so that you leave feeling armed with practical steps to improve your situation. She feels like a coach as well as a therapist and that's exactly what I wanted. At the end of each session she created a bespoke hypnotherapy recording for me, adapted each week to what we'd decided to work on. This year, with Karen's help I have made huge changes, not least giving up drinking - and not missing it. Highly recommended|
Karen has given me my life back!
|Steve From Maidstone on July 10, 2018 at 07:31:10|
|If I could give Karen 10 stars I would, I have been a heavy smoker for over 50 years and have tried numerous times to stop but nothing ever worked, cigarettes were my life and I could not and didn't really want to lose, but my cough was bad, and generally my health was in a bad way because of the fags, so, after reading the reviews for Karen thought I'd give her a try but was sceptical, I felt very relaxed during our session and came out feeling a little strange not even wanting a cigarette. I don't know how she managed it but it's been over 4 weeks now and I've not even been tempted, my cough has gone and finally I have money in my pocket. Food tastes different so I'm eating more but hey ho, I do sometimes think about cigarettes but only in a fleeting second. All thanks to Karen for giving me my life back. Family and friends are amazed by my sudden turnaround.|
If you want to quit smoking this is a defo!!
|Roger on June 01, 2018 at 16:38:13|
|Karen was amazing. I have been. Smoking on and off for 17yrs and was sceptical at first about hypnotherapy. But went in and came out completely changed. It’s only early days but now 2 weeks and haven’t even thought about cigarettes!! Highly recommend.|
Would highly recommend
|MJ on May 21, 2018 at 11:01:32|
|I found Karen approachable and warm. It was as if I had known her for a long time on our first meeting. She made me feel very welcome and had a full understanding of what I was trying to tell her very quickly. I found the audio sessions helpful and would definitely recommend her to my friends.|
A therapy that finally worked!!
|R Kuwertz on May 16, 2018 at 13:24:41|
|After many many different types of therapies, I finally found Karen ...she got straight to the heart of my problems and everything fell into place. The audio sessions have become a part of my weekly routine and have been a tremendous help, not just for me but for my children aswell.|
Moving in the right direction!
|I Would Not Like My Name To Appear Please on May 04, 2018 at 03:56:01|
|Karen is a great 'listener' and her sessions certainly seem to be having a positive affect. Her one to one sessions, coupled with the audio sessions provided are definitely putting me back on the right track.|
Huge help with phobia
|Meg on April 25, 2018 at 15:23:47|
|I had a brilliant session with Karen, who worked with me on a phobia - in one session I saw a huge difference to my anxiety levels and the audio sessions are so helpful. To have lived with something for so long and it be significantly helped in 1 session is incredible!|
|Stacey on April 11, 2018 at 20:02:10|
|I visited Karen for help with weight loss, I felt at ease instantly and noticed huge changes after the first session. At follow up sessions Karen resolved any issues I was having. I would definitely recommend Karen.|
|DT on April 11, 2018 at 18:39:31|
|I have found my hypnotherapy sessions with Karen very helpful. After many years, I finally feel that I have my eating under control and am definitely much more relaxed. I would definitely recommend Karen to a friend|
An absolute tonic!
|I Wouldn’t on April 11, 2018 at 16:58:29|
|Karen was a tonic! Just what I needed. She is professional yet kind and approaches her sessions with patience and understanding. Highly recommended!|
|Joanne Smith on March 19, 2018 at 18:55:31|
|I went to Karen with some issues which needed addressing and I can honestly say that she sorted them out for me!!! I had 2 sessions and I have felt so much better since. Her support and help definitely goes above and beyond the average therapist. 110% recommend!!! My son also visits her and she really helps him with his anxiety 😊|
|L_W on March 19, 2018 at 16:11:29|
|I can't thank Karen enough for her help, she was so understanding from the start and the sessions have massively helped me!|
Yea helped me stop negative thinking
|Darren on March 18, 2018 at 20:56:52|
|Yea seemed to help me,I seem less stressful not so negative in thinking|
Insightful and motivational sessions in a confidential and safe environment
|Geraldine T. on March 16, 2018 at 23:33:59|
|Karen’s sessions provided me with a confidential and safe environment where I could unburden myself without feeling guilty. Karen’s knowledge was extensive and I found her sessions surprisingly insightful as well as highly motivational and I was extremely happy with the results achieved.|
|Jill on March 14, 2018 at 17:00:13|
|3 weeks since attending my appointment and I haven’t Smoked or been tempted too. The audio tapes are great and I’ve used them occasionally would definitely and have already recommended to a friend. Thanks Karen|
Already seeing and feeling the benefits from an understanding and professional expert.
|E B on March 14, 2018 at 12:43:13|
|Karen quickly grasped all the aspects that were bothering me and causing anxious thoughts and feeling. After a good discussion to pinpoint areas to think about and others to let go and not worry about. After the hypnotherapy section really took me by surprise in terms of the level of connectivity with body and mind, that I hadn't had for a long time which is allowing me to see clearer and more confidently. It feels like the positive can over power the negative which had been the other way round for many years. I will be continuing to ensure I continue on a positive curve. Thanks!|
|Tejen Majumdar. Registered Osteopath on March 05, 2018 at 13:09:53|
|Karen has successfully helped me change my life for the better. Karen is very easy to get on with and has a very comfortable consultation room. She gave me a very detailed consultation with a hypnotherapy session that she recorded for me to listen to subsequently, along with other recordings all of which have been excellent. The result; in a very short time I have achieved all my goals. As a medical practitioner myself I have already recommended her to some of my patients, who she has gone on to help. If you plan to change your life in some way I believe Karen has the right skills and techniques to help you do it. Look no further!|
Karen, a wonderful lady who really cares
|Sharon Ford on February 22, 2018 at 20:10:31|
|When I met Karen for the first time I felt immediately comfortable and able to discuss my difficult issues within a safe, warm environment. Karen’s warmth was immediate and her empathy and knowledge invaluable. The audio sessions are a great source of comfort and help. I can’t thank Karen enough for the work we did together to help me feel better.|
|Mr R Monk on February 12, 2018 at 08:11:58|
|Has changed my life. Such an amazing lady. Lovely and comfortable setting.|
|J White on February 11, 2018 at 18:19:02|
|Fantastic lady !! I was very nervous but Karen put me at ease very professional and I’ve still not had one Many thanks Karen x|
|Ms. S on February 06, 2018 at 20:17:48|
|Karen is a fantastic listener, and is able to very quickly grasp the issue you have come to her with. She provides helpful, relevant and practical advice. I’ve found having the audio sessions available to me at home really useful. They are helping me to relax and also address particular problems in a safe and proactive way. In just a short time, I am already noticing improvements in the way I think, and in addressing and changing old unhelpful patterns of behaviour.|
|Alice on January 11, 2018 at 19:06:21|
|Karen is a very warm, caring and approachable person. The sessions helped me in ways a couldn’t have imagined before going. Cannot recommend enough.|
A helpful and comfortable experience.
|Lucy on January 07, 2018 at 22:02:26|
|Karen was lovely to talk to and understood exactly what I needed help with. I felt really comfortable in my sessions and I would recommend her service to anyone.|
Totally on your side to get you the results you want
|Sophie on December 30, 2017 at 20:58:12|
|Karen has been a tremendous help to me, just when I was about to give up all hope of getting back in to shape. She is easy to talk to, has a no nonsense approach and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. She knows what she’s doing. Thank you.|
Karen is fantastic
|Rachel on December 19, 2017 at 12:08:51|
|Karen is fantastic. I really couldn’t recommend her enough. I have seen her for two separate issues and she has helped me massively with both.|
If I can be hypnotised, then so can you.
|Fi on December 15, 2017 at 06:30:00|
|I have tried hypnosis before, but it didn't work. I just thought I was one of those people who can't be hypnotised, but I'm glad I tried again with Karen. I have had an amazing result and although my problems aren't likely to disappear any time soon, Karen has given me the power to deal with a difficult situation, whilst remaining calm and detatched. This is exactly what I needed and I am one grateful customer.|
I regained the motivation that had been lacking.
|Amanda on December 14, 2017 at 18:48:19|
|I regained the motivation that had been lacking in recent months after just the first session with Karen, she has helped me get back on track with healthy eating, to stop procrastinating over tasks that need to be done and generally lifted my mood. The result being weight loss, an organised home - and a far more cheerful outlook. I have recommended her to many of my friends.|
Wonderful, highly recommended
|Gail, Sussex on December 14, 2017 at 12:10:17|
|Karen is wonderful. calming. patient and understanding. I did not want my session to end! She makes you feel at ease and relaxed and it is amazing how quickly the effects of her work starts to help. I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen to anyone who wants help with facing and fixing their phobia's and anxieties.|
Karen is amazin!
|Denise Goff on December 03, 2017 at 17:40:25|
|I went to Karen not knowing much about hypnotherapy and just hoping the reviews I read about her were legitimate and that this type of therapy would help me. Thankfully, it did!! Karen is amazing. She is so friendly and warming. Her presence is so comforting and strong, which made me feel strong and secure. I left feeling like the person I used to feel like, she gave me strength and determination. Which makes me want to continue with hypnotherapy and gives me a push to listen to the audios and not slack off. Karen began by asking me why I was there, it then progressed and got deeper. Karen explained to me what had happened but also assured me that I was going to be fine. It was great to hear that the way I was feeling was normal and that it was easy to fix. After chatting for a while, Karen then performed the hypnotherapy. I felt so comfortable even though I had no clue what was going to happen. After what felt like meditation, I came out feeling amazing. I’m so grateful for Karen and delighted I took the initiative to go.|
I went to see Karen as a last resort as I was very depressed and overweight. I wish she had been my first port of call. She helped me feel positive about myself and on doing so I began to lose weight. Thoroughly recommended.
Visiting Karen was life changing. I went to see her having suffered with depression for over 10 years due to a lack of self worth and after just one session I left with renewed confidence and for the first time feeling that I was worth something. I visited Karen a few times after that and every time I looked forward to my session, she is absolutely lovely and was always able to explain things to me in a way that made sense. She also always had suggestions of ways to move forward and the sessions are so relaxing I always left feeling amazing and on a mission. Now I continue to listen to the sessions at home and have peace of mind that Karen is only an email away.
These downloads are safely stored on my iPod (and my iPhone) and I use them regularly. They are a lifeline for me – I use them on the train up to London or at home, and they have made a significant difference to my life. My particular favourite is Transformation, and I also use Change Your Life and Release Negative Thoughts regularly. The Insomnia session has done away with the need for sleeping tablets, and when I tore a ligament in my ankle, Pain Control helped significantly.
Hi! Just got back from a fantastic holiday – and the journey through the channel tunnel was fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I managed to stay calm through both trips and didn’t even ‘notice’ going through the tunnels during the journey that would have got me worked up before – some of them can be quite long when going through mountain passes! I used the tape every day we were away – I’m sure there’s a real benefit from just stopping and making time to relax and am keeping going with them now we’re back. I also hope the family noticed I was much more calm, positive and cheerful – I certainly felt it and made a real effort to stay calm and positive.
Having gone through a long period of upheaval in my personal and professional life, I decided to try hypnotherapy to conquer my overeating habits and reduce my stress levels. Karen came highly recommended and now I can see why! For anyone who is nervous or sceptical – don’t be and just give it a try. Using some of the techniques Karen gave me in the sessions and the downloads to play at home, I have now changed my eating patterns for good. I no longer reach for bread and chocolate as a comfort and my stress levels have reduced enormously giving me the energy to focus on my new business and start enjoying life. Thank you Karen!
