Here are the changes some of Karen's clients have seen in their lives:
Since our session my improvements have been unbelievable! I've just won the Tauranga Open ... my lowest four round tournament score in about a year ... I love what we did together!
I would like to offer my most sincere thanks to you for my 'marathon' breakthrough session last Tuesday. The changes in me are both wonderful and sustainable. I feel like a 'whole person' again. That was possibly the most valuable six hours of my life! I returned to fulltime work yesterday, and my colleagues just cannot believe the changes in me… I've also been applying the 'home work' that you gave me, and I check my progress once or twice a day. All the techniques and tools/resources that you gave me and helped me develop, are both excellent and effective… And after the second session, my poor sleep pattern was gradually resolved. Thank you so very much. Naturally, I have already recommended you to inquisitive friends and colleagues.
I had been under lots of pressure at work for a long period of time. My blood pressure was high, I had lost all confidence in myself, and was finding it difficult to cope with anything, whether it was work or pleasure. I was constantly exhausted. Even the smallest problem would seem huge. Within a short period of time doing NLP with Karen, I have found a new job working less hours, my blood pressure has dropped and I feel back in control of my life. Karen just made everything seem clear and attainable. My family have all noticed that I am relaxed and back to being my normal happy go-lucky character. Thanks Karen
Thanks Karen - problem solved. Your reassuring approach and sense of understanding gives one a complete feeling of trust. You took me from a place of ongoing tension and anxiety whenever I made contact with my ex, to one of being relaxed and at ease to make arrangements for my children. The way you helped me break through this blockage in life was fantastic.
I had spent most of my working life in support roles which meant I was mainly in the background, with someone else's name attached to a piece of work - I helped to make others successful. For a long time I loved my work and the value I brought to others and their businesses.
Then I started to notice that there were one or two aspects of what I did that I really enjoyed and got a lot of satisfaction from. I decided it was time to focus on those and as a result I made a career change. Although I knew deep down that I was capable, I was very nervous of this shift and my confidence levels were low - the 'little voice' was holding me back.
Karen has helped me enormously through NLP techniques to minimise that voice and to access the resources I had in myself all along that were just waiting to come to the fore. Her grasp of these techniques and her ability to coach them in others has really enabled me to take the next steps in my journey. Thank you so much.
My 13 year old daughter has suffered from a terrible allergy to mosquito bites since she was a toddler. After one NLP session she has had no more reactions, and her reaction to pineapple, which would instantly give her hives, was dealt with too. She is delighted!
Being adopted from an orphanage in Russia, I have had lots of anxieties and fears to overcome and decided now was the time to do something about them. Having worked together with Karen, and learned about NLP, life has become easier and so much more enjoyable. I have now overcome most of those anxieties and can relax more and feel calmer. In fact, I just enjoy life more in general.
Overcoming the biggest challenge, being terrified of the dark, has been amazing to conquer! The progress I have made working with NLP has been in ways I didn’t imagine would be possible, and in a way I sort of doubted it would work at the start!!
I would like to say thanks Karen for your help and guidance throughout the change process. Learning about NLP has been enjoyable and fun and I will always be able to use these techniques throughout my life. It has been an amazing journey and a real privilege working with you! Thanks heaps.
I feel really fortunate to have discovered the concept of the inner coach, whilst working with Karen. To me, a coach is someone who provides you with helpful feedback, encourages you, supports you in striving to achieve and is involved in developing skills. Through recognising and ‘fine-tuning’ my inner coach, I have begun to notice when my inner coach steps in, and offers me helpful guidance, support that moves me towards my goals. It’s empowering and gives me more confidence. And the more noticing I do – the more of a positive feedback loop occurs – creating more of my inner coach’s helpful, goal focused, and encouraging support.
For most of my adult life I have battled a weight problem. Every time I went on a 'diet' it consumed me mentally. I would always be thinking about whether I would make it to the next meal without cheating, what I would eat, how much I could/would eat, and on and on the thoughts would go. I had two voices in my head; one that said 'eat' and one that said 'don't eat' and the one that said eat would always win. I would eat and then feel guilty about eating, and then give up on my 'diet'.
Since doing NLP with Karen I have been watching what I eat and making much more healthy choices and losing weight slowly but surely. I feel that it isn't anymore about fighting the voices and so now I'm able to diet without it being all-consuming and without any guilt if I eat something I think or feel I shouldn't. So far so good - thanks Karen.
Thanks Karen, for the gentle healing way you helped me unleash the restrictions of my past that would have served no purpose today or tomorrow. You have empowered me with tools that I will be using for a lifetime. I am now able to fully accept myself, and I look forward to an amazing future! NLP rocks!
NLP with Karen helped me overcome unhealthy habitual patterns of frustration and anger centred around my relationship with my parents
It gave me an awareness of past events which had reinforced those thought patterns, which in turn empowered me to overcome them. Thank you Karen.
NLP has been so helpful in uncovering habits and behaviours which I hadn't realised were holding me back. It's like peeling back an onion. Thanks Karen for your great coaching and introducing me to new techniques for change.
Before NLP my body would totally over-react to any insect bite. After one successful session with Karen I now react like everyone else and am no longer hindered by the potential of insect bites. Karen, I thank you for your assistance and introducing me to NLP!
I met Karen at a crucial time in my life - I had been very unwell physically and needed as much help as I could obtain to carry me through a difficult stage and to make much needed changes in my life. From our initial chat to our first session, I knew I had made the right choice. Karen's professionalism, compassion and knowledge was exceptional. I had never experienced any NLP before and was literally astounded at the speed of the effects the work had on me personally. I have learnt so much about myself and made enormous changes in my life, thanks to Karen and NLP. I hope that many more people have the joy to experience Karen and her wonderful work.
Before I came to see Karen, I had this constant stream of wayward thoughts passing through my head. I spent most of my days, and nights, worrying about everything. I felt constantly tired and overwhelmed by all that I had to do. I was a little nervous at the start, thinking this sounds so great, but what if it doesn't work for me? The changes I've experienced have made such a difference to my life. I now feel a general sense of calm and control over my emotions. I now sleep through and seem to have more energy. I also seem to get so much more done in the day. The biggest and most life changing thing has been the sense of feeling part of where I am when before I'd always felt separate. This has brought me so much closer to my work mates and had a marked affect on my relationship with my husband. We celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary this weekend and going strong.
I want to thank you for helping me through a tough year last year. Your insights and tools have enabled me to get a grasp on life again and when an issue or life challenge comes up, I am able to trust within myself to find the answers. Most of all I am able to see something for what it is rather than what I think it is.
Although I have still have some moments, I know that it's me that is important, and that I can change things.
Wow. A profound change has taken place in me. I feel a peace and confidence that I haven't felt, ever. I would never have described myself as a stressy person but the work we did really uncovered some deep insecurities and fears and all those other things we dealt with.
I've returned to what I thought was an empty feeling, but not so much empty as clean. Like a dirty slate has been wiped clear and I feel a freedom to write what ever I want now.
The trick is deciding what I'm going to write! But feeling so at peace with me and who I am is a fantastic place to start from.
Thank you for your help in creating a clear clean space and I look forward to the future and the rest of my life.
I have come to realise that that good old saying "You have to love yourself before someone will love you" is so true, and have realised that perhaps that is the difference NLP has made for me. I truly have learnt to like myself, see the positives in me and realise I am an equal to others, which in turn I think will give me the opportunity to have that relationship that I want and see myself having.
The past seems to be the past and I really feel like I have managed to put it to rest and see a much more positive future. Thank you for your time, sharing your knowledge and helping me to move forward in such a positive way.
