About me

Karen is an experienced wellbeing, leadership, performance and executive coach who specialises in working with clients who are looking to level up and unleash their full potential. As a mother of two sweet young boys and working part-time, Karen knows intimately the natural tensions of balancing health, family and work. She is passionate about providing practical strategies to help people overcome any challenge, remove overwhelm, level up professionally, build resilience, and master their self-love ... and self-care through this challenging but extremely rewarding time. Through listening and applying techniques of positive psychology and the right neuro-science, Karen loves watching her clients experience their ‘aha’ moment and supporting them on the right path to see their goals become a reality. After a lengthy career spanning more than 16 years in change, culture and organisational development, becoming a mother, then receiving her own 360 degree feedback from her colleagues, Karen started to put some deep thought into her own purpose which sparked a new professional journey for her. She feels energised by helping others achieve their best. Following her natural strengths and a strong desire to help others achieve their goals, Karen is now a qualified coach with Coaching Pacific Limited and an accredited coach in the Human Synergistics LSI1 and 2 and CILCA 360 tools. She is also registered with the International Coaching Federation. Karen provides a range of one-on-one and group personal and professional coaching for her clients, facilitates strategy and planning sessions, and creates customised corporate workshops. She is also a coach in Caroline Bakerman’s ‘From Overwhelmed to Grounded’ six-month program supporting mothers in overcoming overwhelm and anxiety. Karen looks forward to helping you unleash your best! Read more
