Dear Karen, I just wanted to say a huge thankyou for all the work you have done with me. WOW is all I can say. A couple of months ago I had just come off my anti-depression/anxiety tablets for medical reaonss. I didnt know what I should do. I was ok, but my weight had become an issue so I decided to see Kare to try to lose the weight. To understand more: I work on a far and to keep my energy levesl up I used to drink up to 2 litres of coke a day and drink 4 x 600ml of iced coffee. I didnt really eat anything during the day and at night I would have tea then when I went to bed I used ot snake on anything thtat was in the cupboard. I would even polish off a block of chocolate in a night too. Two and a half months since my hypnosis with Karne and my whole life has turned around;
- My relationship with my partner has gotten a lot better in many ways
- The anxiety has GONE. And yes I still get upset but I am able to deal with different situations now
- I'm not on any medication and I'm so happy
- To top it all off, I have completely stopped drinking coke and iced coffee, no more snacking at night, no chocolate anymore and now I am eating healthy foods
- In two and a half months I have lost 9 and a half kilograms
The only regret I have is that I didnt see Karen years ago! Thank you Karen. S.L. NE Victoria
Dear Karen, I feel so much better than I did before I came to see you. It has definately been a life changing experience and I’ll tell you why. Before I came to see you I was in a constant state of depression and did not like myself or feel like I was going anywhere in my life. Eighteen, with no job, no licence, and no future to look forward to. I felt dumb, like an outcast to be honest. But I now realize that this was all self-talk and that I had made this a reality for myself. All the stuff I had been saying to myself had really made an impact on my life and I needed to take action on how I was thinking but I didn’t know how to do that. But that day, by just following the process you taught me it went from being the worst day, and it was suddenly the best day I'd had all month. I have stopped my negative thoughts and I am currently studying towards my dream job. I really feel a lot more confident and definately alot smarter! Afterall, next year I am going for my diploma. Now that’s cool! So thank you . B.H. Yackandandah
At 22yrs of age I was suffering from social anxiety, doubting myself and my abilities, I was allowing my past to cloud my future judgement and outlook on the world and the person that I was. I was finally ready for change. I was lucky enough to find Karen and began working on a life transformation through my sessions. I have now finished all my sessions with Karen. I have made peace with my past, I am confident, empowered and have that motivation to lead a successful life. I had all these qualities to begin with but life happened and I had lost touch on who I was, Karen helped me find myself again and brought everything I needed for success to the surface. Karen I owe everything to you, you have made my heart happy again and you have put the life back inside of me. You have given me freedom and you have helped me find my magic and now that I have it the sky is the limit. What you have given me I will have that for the rest of my life and I am so grateful. Thankyou. K.B. Wagga Wagga
Thank you so much!! I have tried to stop smoking in the past but it never stuck, even with other hypnotherapists. I always had the thought in the back of my head that quitting was only temporary, that I would go back to smoking one day but you have changed all of that. Today is my 100th day of being cigarette free and I feel fabulous! I can breathe, I no longer smell of smoke which means I also no longer pile on the perfume, my teeth are whiter, my breath much more pleasant, my skin and eyes are clearer, my laugh doesn't have that awful rasping sound, my car even smells clean – its fabulous!
In the 100 days I have travelled through Bali for 2 weeks where people smoke everywhere and all of the time with a committed smoker and not once did I feel the urge to light up. I have been to music festivals with smokers, been out for drinks, BBQ's, dinner & coffee's with smokers, driven my car long distances, had some emotional ups and downs – all of these would have been triggers for me in the past but not any more. I feel empowered. It has been pretty easy to brush away any slight urges that I have had so now I know that there is no way I am ever going to light up again, the mere thought makes my stomach churn. According to Quitbuddy on this 100th day I have saved $2047 (straight into the holiday fund), not smoked 2000 cigarettes and have avoided over 16,000 mg of tar. Pretty amazing and you enabled it. Thank you so very much. N.C. Albury
Weightloss Hypnosis fixes Phone Phobia
Good Morning Karen, I thought that I would give you an update of my progress. I would like to thank you for all you have done for me, I came to you to lose a few pounds, but I have gained so much more. I have lost 6 kg to date and I am half way to where I would like to be, which is just fantastic. I no longer crave any foods and although I still have all the foods that I used to snack on still in the house I have no desire to eat any of them. My family has also greatly benefited as their meals are much more healthier now too. Not only have you helped me lose the weight that I just couldn't shift you have also given me a better outlook on life. I have always considered myself a very confident person, however with your help my confidence has grown greatly as has my outlook on life. I am a much happier person and seem to take great joy in the simple things in life! So for that I thank you. My only regret is that I didn't call you sooner.I have recommended you to a number of friends and I know that they will benefit as much as I have. I love the self hypnosis CDs, I listen to them often and find that they keep me "on track". I now go to the gym three times a week and have also taken up yoga! I am enjoying exercising so much more. Thanks so much for all your help Karen, you are amazing. Hey, I also forgot to add that you have cured me of a slight phobia that I had. I was always very nervous using a phone, worried that I would say something dumb or just stuff things up, to the point where I would rather email than call people and I would put it off and off and not do it until the last minute. Not anymore, in the last two weeks I have had to call various people (ranging in ranks from Brigadier to Sergeant) and I did not hesitate once :) Thanks! M.N. Baranduda
Depression and Anxiety
Sometime ago I suffered a major downfall in my life. Anxiety pretty much ruled my life. I wouldn’t sleep, I wouldn’t socialize, and I wouldn’t accept help, I was depressed. I was too afraid. Not too long ago I still did those things. The amount of money my mum spent on me still, to this day, makes me feel so guilty. I was put on medication (something my dad objected to immediately) I was counselled at school as well as out, I even went on a holiday by myself away from everything. Nothing was working. Mum was afraid. My whole family was afraid for me, but I didn’t care. When it got to the stage where everyone around me was beginning to get affected, I started to come to realization, and trust me when I say that doing so was the hardest thing in my life. It really was. I needed to change, and I needed to do it now, before I’d be too afraid to do so. When a friend of ours suggested Hypnotherapy, I became sceptic. But, the truth is, it turned out to be the best thing I ever did. Karen (tah!) guided me through it, asked permission, and even asked what I wanted her do. I told her, I told her everything. It just came out. When I went under, I was completely aware. I was asleep and not asleep, I was myself but not myself. I heard everything she told me, and to this fine day I still remember everything. When it was over, I literally smiled. I smiled for the whole day. I could feel the change. I wasn’t afraid anymore. Everything is different now. I laugh, I socialize, I SLEEP!!! When I look back on those hard moments, I honestly laugh at how selfish I was. Everyone was afraid for me, but I wouldn’t listen. I just stayed in my room and listened to music, and sometimes I stayed there for days. Thank you Karen for turning me into a human and not a walking corpse. It was worth it. I was 16 when I decided to change; please don’t you wait any longer. Z.C. of Lavington
Hi Karen, I have been meaning to get onto my emails to thank you since my last session with you. I arrived as you know in such an emotional state, after my 6th and last session with you, I left feeling stronger, confident and stress free. The aim for my sessions was to give me some sort of control and be able to get through my upcoming Wedding Ceremony without losing it too much. To speak our vows for everyone to hear, not to be crying from start to finish. You gave me so much more than this - it is truly a life lesson, one that everyone should experience no matter what lifestyle they live. People in general would learn to be so much happier and relaxed!! You have truly helped me escape to places that I didn't think was possible. For those people needing help, you should definately give hypnotherapy a go. I didn't want my sessions with you to end!! It's great to just meet a person and feel as though you can read exactly who I am. So, here I am, truly grateful for your help. Thankyou Karen. T.S. Wodonga
Depression & Anxiety
I met Karen at an EFT workshop in my search for tools and skills to deal with anger and hurt from a divorce and with a 16 year old daughter diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder at the age of 10. Karen informed me she had had great success with teenagers with anxiety, and of course my ears pricked up. We had already seen a paediatrician and psychologist for three years with no progress, a year at NECAMHS with a psychiatrist and counsellor, followed by a year with our GP and then back to NECAMHS with a counsellor and little improvement. We also made lifestyle changes, diet and exercise. My daughter was not ready to commit, but Karen said great success had been achieved with the main caregiver doing the program.
I DID IT – what an amazing program. I have suffered with depression and anxiety on and off my whole life, my ex-husband and our three children each had mental health issues. Finally, after all my searching and reading I stumbled upon this and it is life changing! Light bulb moments were had – I come from a family who have unhelpful thinking and NOW I have the skills and tools to change my life. In fact I started to change and now my daughter is doing some huge things. I can’t recommend the program highly enough (it’s brilliant) and Karen is an awesome facilitator. Thank you Karen x L.R. Wodonga
No More Hoarding
I've thrown out all my mags and started tidying under the surface. I have held onto every magazine I bought for the last 15-20 years, but no more. Before, I just never let anything go. I've also tossed out all the holey towels and mismatched sheets. It was hard, but it is done. I've gone through all the cupboards, even through the bathroom cabinet and half empty containers have been thrown in the bin! I can't really believe it and I\'m still sorting through things and getting them gone. S.H. Wodonga
Healthy Eating & Self Esteem
After many years of battling my weight and trying different programs, I finally reached out to Karen. I did six sessions and after the first week I was armed with a better understanding of what foods my body needed, the importance of an exercise plan and some homework exercises. As I progressed through the weeks, I was making significant progress in terms of weight loss and changing my self-image from negative to positive. I lost 8 kgs, but importantly, I have a huge bounce in my step, positive attitude towards life, an increase in self-esteem and general self-worth (I can now look at myself in the mirror without cringing) and very committed to healthy eating and daily exercise (actually the whole family has followed in my footsteps). So if you are in doubt of needing the incentive to take that dreaded first step, feel reassured this does work and does change lives. I just keep going from strength to strength. Thanks. M.H. Jindera
Six weeks ago I walked tentatively in to Karen's clinic, not knowing what to expect, or what could be achieved. All I knew is that I had been trying to get past alot of tough things in my life, and seemed to be just going around in circles. Over the 6 weeks, through various techniques, Karen has been able to guide me onto the path I wanted and needed to be on. I feel soooooo good, deep deep inside. I have never felt this way before..in control. I mean really in control. A deep seeded internal peace. I feel incredible. Its hard to articulate the changes I feel... and the tough things on repeat, gone, really truely gone. Thankyou Karen for this amazing feeling and change. S.D. Blue Mountains
Dear Karen, I just wanted to thank you. Since I had my hypnosis sessions with you I am happy to say that my overall health has much improved. As you know, I suffer with a lot of pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis and as a result of that, I used to average one day a month of full bed rest, but over the last year, that has not been necessary. I sleep much better now and my weight is now stable. Thank you. A.Mc Wodonga
For many years I have had interrupted sleep, waking many times during the night to worry about just about anything and everything!
After just two simple sessions of hypnotherapy with Karen I have slept soundly through the night for months. I would highly recommend hypnotherapy with Karen as it has made a huge difference to my physical and emotional health. C.N. of Lavington
Recently I underwent two Stereotactic Breast Biopsies, a very emotionally and physically painful procedure. I listened to Karen’s 'Relax and Let Go self-hypnosis audio a few nights prior, which really helped to calm down my fears. I brought an IPod, with the recording to the procedure. Doing the self hypnosis, is what got me through it. By the second one, I was not sure I was going to be able to lie still for another hour. I tried to focus on music, but that did not work. I put the self-hypnosis recording back on and I was able to stay calm and handle the discomfort. Thank You Karen! J LD Honolulu, Hawaii
The most important thing in life is to be present for it. Some show up and scatter their thoughts and energies willy nilly. Those that arrive and choose to be present with life, in their life – whatever that may be, are truly blessed beyond all imaginings.
