Welcome to Karen Plimmer Therapies
My name is Karen, I am a qualified counsellor and hypnotherapist based in Cosby, Leicestershire.
Personal life experiences and my own journey through grief, loss, anxiety and depression have led me on a path of self-discovery, using different therapies along the way.
I decided to train in counselling and hypnotherapy in order to fulfil my passion for helping others reach their true potential.
I am a pluralistic trained counsellor, which means I can bring different elements from different counselling theories into your therapy, meaning your therapy is fully tailored to your needs.
I can use hypnotherapy as a stand-alone therapy or counselling as a stand-alone therapy, or we can work with a combination of both. Hypnotherapy is a great relaxation tool and can be a useful grounding technique to use with anxiety. Counselling can be used as a way of getting to a root cause of an issue, and then hypnotherapy can be used to change the subconscious way of thinking about the issue.
I offer counselling face-to-face or via video link. Hypnotherapy I offer face-to-face only.
Counselling and hypnotherapy can help with:
