I'm Karen Puttick, a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner and Coach, also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy and Advanced Hypnotherapy and able to create a programme of treatment for a wide range of issues.
I work at my clinic in Amersham (a short walk from the Metropolitan Line Tube station), offering hypnotherapy treatments, coaching and facilitating self- empowerment workshops.
My Father was a hypnotherapist and taught me self-hypnosis when I was a teenager. It has proven a wonderful tool which I have applied in situations such as exams, during childbirth, whilst undergoing cardiac surgery and in times of stress. This experience led me to seek professional training as a hypnotherapist myself.
I trained at the prestigious Anglo European College of Therapeutic Hypnosis and I’m registered with The Professional Hypnotherapy Network (PHN) The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), a Senior member of The General Hypnotherapy Register (SGHR), and the Complementary & Natural Health Council (CNHC) and abide by their strict Codes of Ethics and guidelines relating to supervision and ongoing training, plus offering supervision for Hypnotherapists for the PHN and GHR.
I have full professional and public liability insurance, am fully DBS checked and am Data Protection Act Registered. I maintain a high level of continuing professional development and am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, Advanced Hypnotherapy, Hypnotic Coaching, Educational Performance and The Virtual Gastric Band.
For many years I was "The Fairy Godmother" at Fairyland Parties, organising fairy themed parties for children. This business was a manifestation of my belief that using the imagination is not just fun, but is also an empowering life-skill, which I love to share. A particular passion of mine is working therapeutically with children and teenagers (and of course, their parents.)
As a holistic practitioner and teacher of meditation for over 20 years, I have facilitated many training courses and workshops and founded the Healing Tree Network. I also teach meditation, mindfulness and Reiki Healing. Over recent years, alongside my therapy practice I worked for a mental health charity supporting clients with work related mental health issues, managed a holistic health centre and ran a community centre whilst bringing up my three children with my husband of 30 years! My knowledge and experience of medical conditions, holistic medicine and life experience give me a good understanding of many of the problems my clients face. I'm also the author of a number of therapy based books (and a fairy book or two.)
I take enormous pride in my professionalism and was Highly Commended in the "Shining Star Business Awards and a finalist in the Best Business Woman Awards 2018 and 2015 for my work with children and families.
I love my work and look forward to working with you very soon.
