Weight loss

I have lost  over 7 stones using Hypnosis. It was the remarkable power of hypnotherapy actually working for me that motivated me to train as a Hypnotherapist. So I know what it is like to really want to lose weight yet still eat all of the wrong foods and then the right foods but just far too much of them!

In reality, we all know what we should eat and what we should be doing but we have to get our mind in the right place before we have any chance of success and this is what hypnotherapy can help you with. There are many reasons we eat the wrong things and put on weight, it is not usually because we are physically hungry!

Everyone is different; I assess the way your mind works and use NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) to enhance the positive messages. Hypnotherapy can get you motivated to eat the right things in the right quantity and actually want to move your body. It will help you recognise when you are full and stop eating and you will find junk food, including refined sugar, flour and processed foods unpalatable and enjoy healthy, fresh produce, whilst eschewing potatoes and rice to aid your weight loss.

Each session is tailored to you and designed to help you become slim and healthy and stay that way for life. The first session takes 90 minutes (1 ½ hours), is an assessment, plus hypnotherapy to get you started. After that individual sessions last around 1 hour. After the initial 3 sessions, further sessions cost £100 .

I would like to book the first 3 sessions, one a week, in the diary to ensure we get the days and times to suit you. After that appointments will be made, dependant on how you are doing, probably 2, 3 or 4 weeks apart.

Payment for the first three sessions, i.e. £350 is due at the time of booking and non-refundable

Here’s what some of our successful ‘ losers’ have said:

I was cynical before my first appointment, but Karen’s hypnotherapy has made the biggest difference, with the slightest effort and no sacrifice on my part. I’ve lost weight, I’ve stopped drinking, I sleep better, and generally speaking, feel so much more in control of my lifestyle. I’m loving my new diet and feeling so much more positive about my health. After years of prevarication and excuses, I cannot believe how simple, effective and permanent the process has been, and wish I’d found Karen years ago! Thank you!

“Hi Karen, Hope u are well and enjoyed a good Christmas. I’m fine. Still doing my daily aqua workouts and dog walking and really enjoying the exercise and how good it makes me feel. I’m maintaining my 10 and a half stone and religiously listen to my recordings every night. I’m really looking forward to the new year and enjoying the slim healthy me. Thank you again for showing me how. Wishing u a very happy and healthy New Year. With very best wishes xx”

Last year was exceptionally hard for me. I started working with Karen when I decided to stop smoking and after 3 sessions with her I have given up for life. Then there were other aspects of my life I knew I needed to change and it all began with my mental and emotional balance. Karen has instilled so much strength in me not just through her work but by her advice and guidance throughout this journey. We then worked on letting go of a past relationship from which I suffered a low self esteem and mental trauma which lead to obsessive negative thoughts. I never thought I could break free from how I was feeling and change my behaviour but after 2 sessions with her it clicked and I can’t even express how powerful her therapy has been for me I genuinely do not feel any pain from this situation anymore and my behaviour has completely changed. After the letting go sessions we also worked on weight loss and my whole world took shape. I educated myself on nutrition to the point that I feel so free from diet mentality, a torturous trap I had been in throughout most of my life and I have lost 2. stone as a result. Now we are working on building up my confidence to go dating and wow I am already feeling the effects of her sessions taking shape in my way of thinking an behaving. Next I will be moving onto my relationship with alcohol and finally success with my career. She has completely transformed my life for the better. I knew I had to start from within to build myself up again but I definitely could not have fought this battle without Karen. I don’t regret a single penny I have spent on my sessions with her and I sincerely love her from the bottom of my heart for helping me gain my life back. It”s a gift not many people can give to others but she is the best, truly remarkable woman! Thank you so much Karen. love you loads xxx”

Julie (35) London

My first session with Karen was August 2016 and my only regret is why did I not see her before! My weight has yo-yoed all my adult life and when I say yo-yoed I mean a few stone (5 at the max) not a few pounds here and there. Those of you who share this affliction know how demoralising this is, all the zeal and focus to lose the weight and when you do the panic of “what do I do now?”. Inevitably the weight goes back on and then some. I tried everything including Lighter Life (twice) where my hair fell out (twice) and every other diet out there. I had not resorted to surgery but that was next on my list until a very good friend recommended Karen. If you are reading this then you are considering hypnotherapy; all I would say is give it a go, You have nothing to lose except excess weight and free yourself from the diet trap. I am not saying I am perfect now but I have lost weight, I am a size 10-12 and will never be on a “diet” ever again. In fact I think like a slim person now, after a dinner out I automatically cut back the next day and eat “clean”. Having hypnotherapy has given me a freedom from dieting which I never thought I would have – what are you waiting for!”

“Just a quick note to say thanks again. 1 year on and still smoke free! Now started on the diabetes – low carb/high fat way of eating for 6 months. Bloods now normal and halved medication.”

Linda (65) smoker for 30 years Buckhurst Hill

Dear Karen
It’s been three months now since I last had a drink and we started my life changing program, apologies if that sounds rather dramatic but it actually is. You have changed my life completely. I know you say it’s a joint effort but without you it would never have happened. And for that I’m truly great full.
When I first came to see you for a consolation I was dipping my toe in the water regarding giving up the alcohol. I think the first thing I said is I’d lose so many friends. I haven’t lost them I just haven’t the patients to be around them when they are drunk.
Drinking was a massive part of my life for such a long time I didn’t know if I’d cope. Looking back I wonder how I did cope with the heavy drinking. The destruction it was causing in so many areas of my life for so many years, I’m amazed I’m still here in all honesty. And I’m amazed how friends and family actually had the patience to put up with me.
With your help it wasn’t a quick fix it was a wonderful journey on taking a good hard look at myself and getting to know like and respect myself.
It wasn’t intense it was just being honest with myself and taking a look at where I was heading. I looked forward to our sessions and Iv missed not seeing you. You never judged me and I never shocked you I shed heaps of tears and told you my worst fears.
And look at me now changed diet I’m at the gym and a part time job.
I never considered myself a alcoholic but I had a drink problem for sure otherwise why did I visit you? Obviously needed a push in the right direction.
I could go on and on as I can get carried away once I start blogging.
I just wanted to let you know and for you to put this on your website to let people know I’m living proof of how amazing you truly are. Myself and my family thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Love and best wishes

“I’ve lost over 2 stones, I don’t know how as I’ve just eaten what I want, when I want”

Pam (63) Woodford Green 

‘I have really slowed down my eating, I now put the cutlery down between each mouthful and chew and chew, taking so much time to eat…and I just don’t feel hungry as I used to, my appetite has really gone down…it’s brilliant and I’m astounded. Even my cravings for something sweet is going. Oh yes, I’ve left food on my plate too, which is unheard of, I really don’t want that stuffed, overfull feeling, so I eat slowly and I’m actually consciously aware of the feeling of the message telling me it’s time to stop eating, it is so good, thank you’

Mandy (38), Buckhurst Hill

“It has been very good, I’ve had no urge to eat or drink anything unhealthy, no snacking or rubbish at all. I even tried to test myself with my children’s food but wasn’t tempted. When I went out for dinner I didn’t fancy bread and made healthy choices because I wanted to rather than feel I should. It has been so easy.”

Karen (45), Buckhurst Hill

“I just wanted to let you know that I don’t crave sugar like I used to; I no longer drink diet coke and pasta has gone from my life. Plus I’ve lost 7 inches, I feel so much better, thank you”

Caron, South Woodford

“Ur magic is working, every time I eat my mind orders me to eat less…Im eating 50% less, have not eaten bread, roti, naan etc”

Arfan, Ilford

Karen, it is wonderful I no longer eat, or want to eat bread, potatoes, pasta, cakes or biscuits. If I am not hungry I don’t even think about food, it just doesn’t bother me any more. I’m swimming, walking to work now and going to the gym twice a week, my whole life has changed for the better and it has been so easy, having lost so much weight is great, I feel great.”

Davina from Epping

“Hi Karen, without wanting to jinx myself I haven’t eaten any chocolate, biscuits or crisps and left a petrol station with just a receipt for petrol (definitely a first!)…have been eating healthier for sure”

Dina, Chingford

“Thank you Karen, I have achieved what I wanted to achieve, I have excluded junk food like sweets, desserts and cakes from my diet. I realise that eating that sort of stuff made me feel down, I actually felt anxious and got mood swings; I felt as if I was losing my willpower. You have really helped me, now I just don’t feel like buying cookies and that sort of rubbish anymore. I am focussed, I really enjoy my healthy meals and I feel so much more positive, happier and stronger plus I have more energy. I can have a slice or two of pizza or a glass of wine with no feeling of guilt. Everything is so much better.

Rosie, Loughton 

“It is a few weeks now since I finished my final session with Karen and I am still, slowly but surely, dropping weight. At first, I was sceptical about the success of Hypnotherapy helping me to finally change my lifelong eating habits but IT WORKS! I can eat what I fancy but no longer want large portions of food and no longer like sugary drinks or crave sweets, cakes and chocolate! Years of yoyo “dieting” , choosing low calorie options and guzzling diet coke has come to an end. If I want a diet coke I will have one but, do you know, it tastes awful! Amazing how the mind works! I am so pleased I overcame my doubts and went ahead with the eight week programme with Karen. Not only have I seen and felt the difference, I sleep really well too and am able to ‘relax’ whereas I would previously worry and stress! Thanks so much Karen. To think, we managed all of this success over 200 miles apart – via FaceTime/Skype! Wonderful success I’d say!”

Elaine, Cheshire 

“Hi Karen, I am consciously not eating so much and consciously not wanting to eat so much. I have simply stopped eating biscuits in the evening, as you know I used to eat up to a packet a night. When I was away in Cornwall I had half of a Cornish pasty, it would have been unheard of to leave it in the past. I went out to dinner the other day and didn’t have pudding and I actually didn’t want it either. I thought, I could have it if I want but I just didn’t want it. Now I do not want the feeling of being stuffed, the idea of being bloated is horrible and so I have broken the habit formed over many years and I am happy to leave stuff on my plate and that’s almost a miracle!”

Ann, Loughton.

I am making good food choices, loving the gym (never thought those words would come out of my mouth!) and am losing weight. I am so much happier than I have been in a long time. This has all been due to receiving hypnotherapy (and friendship) from the lovely Karen Boxall. I am so grateful to her. If you need help in any area of your life she is the woman for the job! Xxx

Sue, Chigwell.

“My son left his choc brioche roll this morning. Normally I would polish this off…But not today!!! yay …I can’t believe it. The first time I’ve resisted them, I normally wait for him to leave some as I’m rather partial to them!! I found more pleasure putting it in the bin #cured!!X”

Marianne, Loughton.

“My whole frame of mind has changed, I am not on a diet and there is no longer that obsession with food. If I want to have something I can, for example if I fancy chips I just have 2 or 3 and that is fine. All my life I have yoyoed with diets and for the first time I’m free; I just don’t feel like that anymore.”

Carol, Chingford.

“I cannot believe it, I went on holiday for two weeks and still lost weight; normally I would have put on at least half a stone. I don’t think about chocolate anymore I haven’t eaten chocolate or biscuits for months.”

Gill, Chigwell Row

“Thank you Karen. …I’m doing well – regular gym 4 times a week – will be more during school holidays obviously!!  And walking to and from school four times a week. Really enjoying getting my body moving and feel so positive about exercise – which, quite frankly, I don’t think I have ever been before! I am still making better food choices without being obsessive.  Having said that certain rubbish foods have lost their appeal for me, and I will feel hungry rather than eat rubbish.  I am definitely eating less.….can definitely feel my body is more toned (less wobble in the Aqua class!) and clothes are fitting better, my belly is going down ….So, all in all, very positive, very happy and so very grateful to you.  I’m so glad I found you!!”

Sue, Loughton.

“I’ve been good…lost 6lbs (in the last 2 weeks). Done lots of gardening, walking and swing ball this week…much to my son’s delight. Hoping to start aqua zumba next week. Its fantastic, I know I’m actually starting to feel like me again…it feels great”

Tracey,  Buckhurst Hill

  “It has been like a switch in my mind, I am not thinking about food the whole time now; life doesn’t revolve around food any more. It is like a revelation, I have never, ever been like this before.”

Stephanie, Chingford

Hi Karen, good thanks. Have felt much more upbeat and certainly eaten less and moved more…been swimming … which I’m v proud of! I’ve still eaten a few small treats … but overall I have found it reasonably easy to not eat cheese/biscuits/cake all of which have been on offer …. Am cutting portion size, finding it much harder to chew for longer and put cutlery down, I fear I’ve been a chain eater for long while so I must keep practising. Despite this I have still been last to finish! Now for the weekend, will be harder, but plan to see if my poor old knee us up to a walk in the forest. ..Thanks for the encouragement. My usual Saturday fry-up was replaced with tomato, mushroom and courgette and it still felt like a treat! x

Julia, Epping

I have been on so many diets over the years and now I know I am not on a diet anymore. I find I am not eating as much, I don’t want the wrong things, rather than thinking I can’t have the wrong things and I just don’t feel hungry like I used to. I really feel I am on the right track.”

Carol, Chingford.

“It’s amazing!  My whole outlook has changed, now I eat fruit as a snack and it fulfils me. I still cannot get over it; I lost 4lbs this week.”

Gill, Essex.

I cannot believe how good I feel it just seems too good to be true. I have been binging for as long as I can remember and now I haven’t binged at all. The constant internal battle has stopped and I am no longer constantly consumed with thinking about food.”

Kerry, Epping.

“I am seeing Karen for the 8 session weightloss package and it is working. In the past, every night after dinner I couldn’t stop myself eating sweet stuff; and now, I cannot believe it but I don’t even think about it anymore. I find myself eating very slowly, and for breakfast I couldn’t manage a second slice of toast! This weekend I walked over 13 miles, I chose fruit for a snack instead of the usual sweets. My life is changing for the better. Thank you

Gill, Chigwell Row.

I came to see Karen last year but…didn’t follow her instructions and so I didn’t really benefit from our initial sessions. Then, however, after hearing about how Karen helped a friend give up smoking and chocolate I decided to see Karen again – this time to help me give up crisps and I’m absolutely delighted to say that I have followed Karen’s easy instructions and have now kicked the habit”

Iream, Ilford

“Two weeks ago I came to you and still haven’t had chocolate, not that I haven’t thought about it. …I haven’t missed a night of listening to your recording…Thank you.”

Brenda, Woodford Green.

I just wanted to let you know that I already feel so much happier and lighter (emotionally and physically). It is nice to be back in control of my eating and making healthier choices. I am so excited to be slimmer and to reach my goal weight at some point in the future. I am looking at clothes that I WILL fit into again with anticipation and not dread. …and the excitement I will be feeling to tell you how much weight I have lost!! Karen you have already changed my life. Thank you.”

Sue, Loughton

“As a G.P….I found the tailor-made sessions with Karen relaxing and enjoyable…helped me achieve the right frame of mind to maintain weightloss, so far 12lbs over 4 weeks.”

Dr KC, Abridge

“As a complete newcomer to hypnotherapy, I was curious but also quite apprehensive before my first session with Karen; however she was so calm, clear and gentle throughout the whole process that I soon felt completely at ease with her.  I am delighted with the results of the hypnotherapy and feel that so far it has been very successful in achieving my goals!  Thank you Karen!”

Maria, London

“I have been visiting Karen for help with my weight loss. Firstly Karen is very professional but still has a personal touch. The environment that the hypnotherapy was undertaken was calm and comfortable.  After 4 sessions of hypnotherapy I feel that I have changed my eating habit for the long term, not just a quick fix. She has also supported me during the sessions by lending me books and sending me encouraging texts .I would recommend Karen to anybody who is considering hypnotherapy, and not just for weight loss.”
