Karen Thomas Mind Coach
I went to Karen for help to recover from trauma following a car accident as well as childhood trauma and tried Havening. I couldn't believe something so apparently quick and simple could give such dramatic results. I no longer feel strong negative emotions about things that have upset me all my life. I feel so much more positive and in control. Also, the actual experience of Havening is comforting and relaxing. I would recommend this to anyone who has negative associations or traumas they want to move past. Karen is a force of positivity and kindness and should be available on the NHS!
I went to see Karen to help conquer my fear of giving blood as it got to the point I was being given diazepam to help me calm down and would nearly always faint during the process. I am pleased to say I gave blood a couple of weeks ago and was able to keep myself calm by using the havening techniques Karen taught me and got through it without stressing or passing out. I would like to thank Karen very much for helping me overcome this fear at this very important stage in my life (I’m pregnant) and would recommend Karen to anyone who is looking into hypnotherapy to overcome anxiety’s - it works! Thank you Karen.
I have visited Ms Thomas on a couple of occasions so far for assistance with an anxiety issue I have had, and it really has been incredible the progress made in such a time.
First of all, even before the first visit, Ms Thomas was warm, friendly and very reassuring, taking time to answer my questions and making sure i was comfortable. On meeting, this care and support was again very impressive, she was so informative and listened to me. To say to someone what the problem is and that you need help can't be easy, but Ms Thomas did make things so pleasant, relaxed and comfortable. I could not have been in safer hands.
Once we had discussed everything there was to discuss i had my first taste of hypnosis and my body and mind were very quickly deeply relaxed, it was an amazing feeling. This level of relaxation was supported as well with a recording that i was to take with me and listen to daily ahead of the second session.
The second time i experienced havening to help deal with the anxiety issue. This involved Ms Thomas using her hands to parts of the head, shoulders and arms whilst i counted down in sequence, and some other mental exercises, and the level of profound relaxation i experienced was incredible. I was just slumped in my chair like a rag doll. The recollection of what we did then is that we worked on the images that made me anxious and just reduced the anxiety. Im my mind the pucture became smaller and smaller and lessened the anxiety. My recall is a little bit foggy because of how relaxed i was, my analytical mind was, and it does sound cheesy, put to sleep, but i was still aware (just utterly relaxed, like when you are just waking up and half asleep) and Ms Thomas voice floated and drifted through the room and the work on my anxiety acted on my subconscious mind.
On being brought back to my normal consciousness i was amazed because the anxiety i had was gone. The havening technique Ms Thomas used was just incredible, to get me into such a deep deep state of relaxation and to get to work on my problem, i would recommend her to anyone. I can't say everyone will get such immediate results but i believe that if you let go and relax, follow the induction, work with Ms Thomas that you will see positive results quickly. Im planning my next visit because i just want to enjoy the complete relaxation mostly, as well as to reinforce the work we have done so far. A great experience.'
