Hypnotherapy Dunedin offers a confidential service that can help with many issues including bad habits, stress, anxiety, headaches, lack of confidence insomnia, smoking and weight to move towards the life that you want.
The mind is a powerful tool that modern science is still unravelling. Science has shown that our minds can control the thoughts that shape the way in how we experience and enjoy the world. A healthy mind is important to achieve wellbeing. Hypnotherapy may be considered to be a type of ‘yoga for the mind’ where negative thoughts and habits are cast out and replaced with thoughts that are helpful in moving us forward to achieve our goals and dreams.
Hynotherapy can help you move beyond blocks and towards the life that you want.
Does the thought of flying, dentists, heights or spiders freeze your blood?
Hypnotherapy can help you erase these miserable fears.
Is pain, or irritable bowel syndrome holding you back from enjoying life?
Hypnotherapy may be the answer that you are looking for.
I provide a range of highly effective programs and together we can plan the right one for you.
If you have further questions about how hypnotherapy can enhance your life contact Karen on (03) 466 7220 or 027 631 6090 for a free consultation.

Stress, Anxiety, Panic Attacks and Headache Management
Is Stress Affecting Your Life?
It is likely that we have all experienced the effects of stress at various stages of our lives – whether homemaker, student or professional. Any event that causes us to become mentally or physically overwhelmed can result in the body reacting with a fight-flight response so that we are primed to fight, flee or freeze. This process occurs naturally and often on a unconscious level.
Health problems can occur when the stressors are ongoing and significant. If not dealt with stress can also impact on our ability to preform to the best of our ability.
BUT…… How do we counter stress and manage to fulfill the huge expectations of a modern life? How do we deal with all that information overload? The great news is that here’s where hypnosis can help you!

After exploring the cause/s of your stress and your current coping strategies, I can help you find ways to de-stress and re-focus. You will also learn valuable techniques including relaxation and self-hypnosis to help calm your thoughts and body.

Consultations & Charges
Please allow 1 ½ to 2 hours for your first session. During the first session we look at your medical history, what has been happening, for how long, and how it has been affecting you. This information will be used to devise a program to suit your individual needs. The session will also include an analysis into how effective hypnosis will be for your particular enquiry, answering any questions you might have regarding the process and a short introduction to hypnosis.
These may vary from 40 to 60 minutes. During these sessions we will be building on to the positive results from previous sessions. You will be learning about the benefits of self-hypnosis and how to use this technique to enhance the level of control you have over your life. If you feel you would benefit, we will put together a CD to help you to practice all your new skills at home. To maximize effectiveness of the program, practicing your new skills are important.
NB. Additional materials such as CD's are included in the session charges.
Please wear comfortable clothing. If you would like someone to accompany you, a comfortable reception area is available.

Alongside my extensive academic background, most of my life has been spent immersed in different cultures whose life philosophies differ markedly from our own. I have observed that the happiest, healthiest and most successful people are those that have learned to use their minds to positively influence their thoughts and emotional state of being.
My passion for hypnotherapy was fueled following the development of chronic pain resulting from a serious injury. The use of hypnosis enabled me to control the pain rather than the pain control me - it transformed my life in many unexpected ways! Being very aware of the wide reaching impacts that an injury can have on one's life, I was amazed at how the process seemed to practically 'melt; away all of the impacts. As a research scientist I was intrigued with the process and this fascination continues to grow daily as I witness the incredible changes in peoples lives.
Within my clinic, I offer each person not only my skills as a clinical hypnotherapist, but also my skills and considerable experience obtained from my strong psychology and social work background. My professionalism and confidentiality is guaranteed!
My aim is to assist others in unlocking the powerful tools that lie within them, thus enabling them to live the life that they feel is right for them. Given my dedication with working alongside others to help them achieve the happiness that they seek and my passion for learning, you will find that my website is regularly updated with new techniques that I can offer.
