Karen's passion, in coaching, is to enable individuals to increase self-awareness, uncover limiting beliefs and assumptions, gain insight and make conscious shifts towards becoming more autonomous.
Karen has a holistic and eclectic approach. As well as being a coach, she is an experienced holistic health practitioner, fire-walking instructor and yoga teacher with a passionate interest in supporting individuals to take bold steps to authentic living and optimum wellbeing. She integrates a wide variety of tools in her coaching practice with individuals and groups including breath-work, mindfulness, relaxation techniques and other self-help tools as appropriate.
Working creatively, and from a psycho-dynamic perspective, Karen enables individuals to reflect, explore and create awareness in order to see new perspectives, find solutions, develop new ways of being and facilitate transformational change. These changes can increase confidence and belief in self, encourage positive behaviours, promote increased capability, enhance performance, strengthen resilience and increase capacity to deal effectively with professional, personal and interpersonal challenges.
Karen has an open, warm and intuitive approach which is non-judgemental, respectful and tailored to individual needs. She honours your uniqueness and works with integrity in a person-centred, collaborative, flexible way to be of best service to you.
Karen has a background in nursing, management and people development. As well as 1:1 coaching sessions, Karen has experience of facilitating groups and leadership training.
