About Karen

Karen Bartle, hypnotherapist






As a trainer of hypnotherapy, you can be reassured that my knowledge and skills are of a high standard.

My approach to therapy is all about empowering people. I offer support, encouragement and guidance. I help my clients to make physically and mentally healthy decisions, to improve their health and well-being. You will always get a warm welcome here!

I am very enthusiastic about my work and I work with a wide range of issues. I feel privileged to be able to use my skills and knowledge to enable clients to achieve positive results.

Previously, I spent a number of years working as a Graduate Psychologist. This included working in specialist units with people with severe and enduring mental health problems and working within a specialist community based team supporting clients who had learning difficulties, autistic spectrum issues, and challenging behaviours. The work was very challenging, but incredibly rewarding.

I am registered with the Australian Hypnotherapists Association.

My qualifications

MSc (Subject: Health Psychology) - a two year university course. Health psychology is a psychological field which, as the name suggests, deals with improving people's health using psychology.

BSc (Hons) (Subject: Psychology) - a three year university degree. As a clinical hypnotherapist, it is especially helpful that I am equipped with the knowledge and the tools for helping clients psychologically. You can have confidence that I have a detailed understanding of mind, behaviour and communication.

HPD - Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma - externally validated and accredited jointly by the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and NCFE.

DipH - Diploma in Hypnotherapy. This qualification was gained by showing competence as a clinical hypnotherapist by completing an intensive course of over 450 hours. I was assessed on my theoretical knowledge and understanding, and my ability to practice hypnotherapy in a safe and ethical way.

NLP Practitioner - Practitioner of Neuro-linguistic Programming.

CertSM - Certificate in Stress Management.

CertHypSup - Certificate in Hypnotherapeutic Supervision. I am a qualified hypnotherapy supervisor.
