On the first appointment Karen takes a complete history, explains how hypnosis works and what her client can expect to achieve with hypnotherapy. This takes about an hour. Immediately following is the first session in hypnosis that lasts about 1 1/2 hours. She asks her clients to allow about 2 1/2 hours for the first appointment.
The second session is usually scheduled within a week. (Except for smokers which have a next day appointment). During the second session she makes a personal CD for them while they are in hypnosis. This allows them to immediately begin their own self-hypnosis. Each CD is personalized just for their needs. While using the CD the client is hypnotizing themself. They are reinforcing and empowering themselves with the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that lead them in achieving and maintaining their personal goals.
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.
