Every day is another chance to change your life

What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a combination of Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Hypnotherapy. It is designed to reduce anxiety, calm the mind and help you to focus on and achieve your goals.   Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is based on the most current research in neuroscience. We understand how our brain works and how we can use the very latest techniques to achieve fast, effective results. Hypnotherapy is best described as a combination of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is talking therapy where we discuss the issues and discover step by step what you want to change and Hypnosis enables the subconscious mind to support the beneficial changes that you want to make that will help you to achieve your potential, think, be more positive and cope better with life.   All the techniques I use are designed to relieve the symptoms of anxiety and heal the mind so that you can once again feel calm and positive about your life.   If you’ve found yourself asking any of the following questions then maybe it’s time to book in for a FREE initial consultation to see if I can help.

Hello and Welcome

Mock My name is Karen Briggs and I am a Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapist offering personalised hypnotherapy services for a wide range of emotional and physical issues.  I help people overcome their anxieties, sleep related problems, depression, phobias, trauma, manage their pain and many other symptoms that are often exacerbated by stress.


  • I am pleased and grateful to Karen, this is the third day of not smoking, no patches or pills, clean and natural, I would recommend anyone who needs clarity of thought to give it a go, you've got nothing to lose.- Charlotte Nolan - Lancaster
  • I had hypnotherapy with Karen to give up smoking 16 weeks ago. I have not had a cigarette since. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone wishing to give up smoking. I found her so easy to talk to and I honestly don't think I'd have got so far without her help.- Sue Tuson - Chorley
  • I have been having hypnotherapy with Karen for a few months now and I can’t believe the difference it has made to my anxiety and the way I think! Can’t recommend it enough.- Helen Howard – Lancaster
  • Karen is very attentive throughout the session so that you feel only you matter in that moment. Karen has a warm and gentle manner and a calming presence. - Sally - Kendal
  • Karen helped me when I was struggling with life changing decisions that I needed to make. She helped build my self confidence and helped to restore my well being. She listened without judging and helped me to find a pathway forward.- Alan - Lancaster
  • My sessions calmed my mind and improved my sleep- MB – Lancaster
  • I visited Karen in the run up to an important observation at work. I was feeling very anxious as my last observation had not gone well. Karen made me feel very comfortable and listened to my concerns. She explained clearly and in layman's terms how my brain was reacting to the stress and how to combat it. I left with an audio recording of the session which I listened to daily in the run up to the observation. Going in to the observation I felt prepared, confident and calm. - Vicki Clarkson - Chorley
  • First of all I’ve appreciated your friendly professionalism. It’s quite a daunting prospect coming to discuss my mental health and your approach really helped to set me at ease and engage me on an intellectual and emotional level. I found it helpful that you start by explaining the process and its rationale before doing it, and that in the debrief you also explain further why the activities are effective as well as providing opportunities for me to reflect on the overall experience. The benefits I’ve experienced so far are: a clear, conceptual understanding of stress, depression and anxiety; persuasive explanations about good self care (for instance daily relaxation for REM top up), the consequences of alcohol consumption, the benefits of planning and anticipating positive experiences; a sense of purpose and direction for better mental health; good sleep on consecutive nights for the first time in 5 years or so! Thank you for your help so far!” - KC - Lancaster
  • What a wonderful life experience it has been, meeting Karen and, with her help, restoring my perspective on life. I went to see Karen with anxiety issues, deeply rooted from birth trauma and the death of my son 14 years ago, followed by the death of both parents soon after. Karen is so easy to talk to, she is a great listener, very warm and compassionate and I always felt at ease in our sessions. Karen has helped me to find my inner calm again which I was struggling to find on my own. This experience has been so rewarding, I wish I had done it sooner. I would recommend Karen to anyone who feel they are carrying around their worries and fears. I am undoubtedly in a much better place thanks to Karen's help. - Claire Marshall-Slater
  • I went to Karen as I was suffering with very bad anxiety and lack of sleep due to the breakdown of my marriage. Karen was very warm, welcoming and understanding of my situation and she explained very thoroughly what my own thoughts, feelings and actions were leading to. I used to lie awake half the night or longer going through things that were happening on a daily basis. She sent me a relaxation recording and from that night, my sleep was restored and through the processing my brain did, whilst asleep, my anxieties eased. I was able to cope much better with what I was going through. I would highly recommend Karen as a way to help cope with all life's stresses.- Mandy Ibbison - Chorley
  • I have had many session with Karen over the last few months regarding my anxiety. To say the least hypnotherapy has been life changing it has helped me manage my anxiety and will enable me to achieve my dream to become a professional singer Karen has been a great help and I would highly recommend her as a hypnotherapist, she has changed my life for the better.- Colette Webb - Lancaster
  • I have tried three different talking therapies for my dog phobia and none were successful. So I decided to try a different approach which was recommended to me - hypnotherapy. After three sessions I have been able to achieve things I thought weren't possible. I have been able to go places that used to put me off because of dogs. I'm now able to be a normal mum and take my child to the park and go to places with my friends and family. Karen has helped me so much I appreciate everything that she has done for me. I would highly recommend her for any concerns or fears you may have.- Millie Holland - Chorley
  • After receiving hypnotherapy for my fear of heights I am now able to take on new challenges with my children (climbing the tree house and doing the high ropes!). Karen has a lovely approach and really helped me so much to get over my fear in a calm way. I loved that she explained why it all happens and gave me strategies to cope. Thank you so much. - Elaine Smith - Chorley
