The first appointment is a consult, in which Karen takes a complete history and explains how hypnosis works. She also discusses what the client can expect to achieve with hypnotherapy. This takes about an hour. Many times the first session in hypnosis can be done after the consult the same day. This takes about an hour and a half. Other times based on the client’s issues the first session of hypnosis is scheduled within a few days.
The next session is usually scheduled within a week. (Except for smokers which have a next day appointment). During this session she makes a personal CD for them while they are in hypnosis. This allows them to immediately begin their own self-hypnosis at home. Each CD is personalized just for their needs. While using the CD the client is hypnotizing themselves, reinforcing and empowering themselves with the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that lead them to achieve and maintain their personal goals and desires.
Karen follows their progress carefully over the phone, and will have them come back if some fine tuning needs to done, or if the client would like to work on other problems or concerns. In many instances several issues can be addressed at the same time.
Karen works with children over the age of 4, teens and adults. She makes home and hospital visits(there may be an additional fee for time and travel) and she is available for speaking engagements. Karen works with clients with developmental disabilities, autism, ADD, ADHD, and complusive behaviors.
