"I was fortunate enough to attend supervision sessions with Karen. The sessions provided a real opportunity to evaluate my own performance and issues with someone who understands the everyday work of a hypnotherapist. Karen was always good at provoking your own ability to reason out problems and understanding how to deliver the best you could for your client."
