About Me

Karen Courtney


My background is in Marketing, PR and Journalism so I have spent my adult life talking to clients and writing their stories. Now I’d like to help you live the best version of your life.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy has helped me navigate through a series of challenges – bereavement, serious illness, family/teenage issues, divorce – all the usual stuff we all encounter along the way. Talking to a Cognitive Hypnotherapist led me to see things in a new light and put my life back on track. In fact it gave me a new track altogether. It helped me realise that any future we envisage for ourselves is a fiction – so why spend time worrying about what might or might not happen, about things we can’t control? We all have the capabilities within us to solve our own problems or issues but sometimes we just need a bit of help to point us towards where to go to find these resources.

“If you’re feeling helpless, help someone.”
