living out of a backpack for the best part of 9 months, I knew that there had been a ‘shift’ in my mindset, and in effect, that my return home would mean a lot of change. Completing my Reiki training in India, in the serene hills of Dharamsala, was just the catalyst to continue exploring and immersing myself in a world that truly does light me up – the world of holistic health.
My 14-year career in Education had somewhat lost its shine, and in many ways what my head + heart + body had been telling me for several years, suddenly became so loud that I couldn’t stop listening anymore.
The time away gave me something that I will always be deeply grateful for - a fresh perspective and the ‘hunch’ I was destined for a new calling.
My path from being a stressed-out, overworked Primary School teacher, to where I am now, wasn’t all smooth sailing and smiles … I have travelled on my own healing journey through chronic stress, anxiety, depression and adrenal fatigue.
It’s been a LOT of hard work, determination, tears, wine (lol!) and I have had to dig deep to continue to push myself out of my comfort zone.
The low times have shown me to appreciate the highs, and the dark of rock-bottom has helped me see the light.
I have learnt the value of caring for my health holistically - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually - and creating a way of life that is about more joy, less stress and more ease.
I am a qualified:
Time Line Therapy Practitioner

I am so grateful to have been able to turn something I love into something I live and share. And for that my heart feels full.
I'm known to love a hug, hold incredible women's circles that foster connection and space for women to engage in meaningful, soulful conversations. There is just something SO special when women come together - it's magic!
I'll be hanging with my hubby Scott and my little pug Audrey, or relaxing with a good book as I soak in my outdoor bath - my proudest DIY to date! Sunday mornings you'll find me in bed watching fashion videos on YouTube, or rearranging my cloffice (closet / office) for the tenth time that month... because I'm kinda obsessed with decluttering and shaking up the energy of a space. I'm not alone on this, right?! :)
The Alchemist by Paul Coehlo
Every time I read it, I feel it speaking to my heart. It seems I’m drawn to pick it up whenever I feel a sense of uncertainty, a major change impending, an upleveling that's rumbling... and every time it redirects me back to my ‘personal legend’ and my faith is restored.
If you haven’t read The Alchemist, I highly recommend!
I would highly recommend Karen to anyone who feels a niggle that there's more they can be doing to own their happiness and looking to make a change in their life but are feeling unsure where to start."
Working with Karen, you will feel like you are being lovingly guided in the right direction in life - and I guarantee you will be amazed by her positive energy"
