My aim

My aim is to create a moment of calm in the lives of my clients, a place where good decisions can be made.

My experience

Hi, I'm Karen and I'd like to share my  previous work experience with you and explain why it led me to train as a coach.

I've worked in healthcare and fashion. I've studied social anthropology and I'm currently studying for a MA in Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology.  But the common thread that pulls all of these experiences together is a lifelong fascination in humans.

I studied courses such as counselling and life coaching before becoming a trained Neuro Linguistic practitioner and these experiences showed me that coaching skills can be greatly improved through learning and practice.

After I developed a colour classification system ( colourelements.com ) I worked with customers on a one-to-one basis as they developed both personal and business aspects of their lives. I saw that what we believe about ourselves and our experiences is more powerful than rational facts.  The story of our lives is just that, a story that we choose to tell ourselves, and we can choose to tell it however we like.

My own business experience in setting up a company, my personal experiences in sharing life with my husband and three children and my own experience of being coached by Lynne and Lee have all been part of the journey towards my work as a coach.
