It feels like a different life.
I cannot thank Karen enough for her outstanding work in making sense of the ‘rubbish’ I presented her with – she has gone a very long way towards unscrambling this - and I am sure many other very mixed up heads! Alcohol and ancillary demons’ have plagued me for many years. Responsibility for that lies squarely with me. I have sought assistance on a voluntary basis and over a number of years now, This is not said by me as a ‘proud boast’; indeed, I would say that my abuse is an issue that has plagued me for more years than I care to remember. In my experience, approaches differ from “fire and brimstone” through to “drinkers diaries with half an hour counselling”
Since working with Karen I am far more comfortable with my ‘skin’ than I have been for many years and can at last live now and look forward to the future with hope. Karen’s caring and flexible approach requires much effort and a lot of skill on her part, she listens, she really does understand and she will find a way for you to find your way. For me it really does fell like a different life. Thank you! Thank you!

I cant begin to thank you enough – for giving our family back the
happiness we used to share – lost along the way in raising two quite
different but both challenging children as they became teenagers – they too
are finding that the time with Karen has made a difference to how they see
themselves, their lives and their mum and dad! She has a real gift –
more mums and dads w living through the “teenage years” would certainly
find the investment in the family academy really really valuable (beyond
priceless, beyond words).
Just wanted to say thank you because I'm progressing and finding out
more about myself than I ever could have done on my own. You've helped me
tremendously, and it's not over yet. I think it's amazing what you do.
I also find it amazing that you remember so much about what we've talked about - anything from early conversations or little snippits I have said, I don't know how you do that with a large number of clients. It really makes the biggest difference.
Karen has helped me transform my life beyond all recognition. She has
helped me believe in myself and to realise all of my dreams. I never
dreamed this life was possible for me.
Talking to Karen is not like talking with anyone else – she helps me to
understand myself, and to act on those insights. She is lovely.
Throughout everything she has been the one person who really gets where
I am at, and has always been able to pinpoint exactly what it is I need to
focus on now in order to move forward. Karen has a unique ability to
identify what is going on – consciously or subconsciously – and guide you
forwards, and kick you up the backside (in the nicest possible way) if you
need it, in a way that always moves you forward yet without her ever
telling you what you should or shouldn’t do.
These last three years have been long and difficult for me, as I have
suffered from severe depression, high blood pressure and personal
difficulties. Karen has helped me by using her skills and her deep
understanding of trauma and people.
Having been through a difficult time in my life, I lacked the clarity to
be able make decisions about my future and found myself stuck in a rut and
unable to move forward. I didn’t want face to face “therapy” but found
talking on the phone really comfortable. Problems I had been
pondering for months were quickly sorted and I found within a very short
time I was a new person living a new and improved life. I can liken the
experience to that of a fairy godmother waving a magic wand. She performs
miracles. I don't use the word 'miracle' lightly but I do use it
Talking with Karen is like talking to an old friend who only wants the
absolute best for you. She helps you go beyond what you want to 'do' and
allows you to connect with who you really are, who you want to become and
what you have to do to create that person from the inside, out.
Since working with Karen I have been able to be truly honest with myself and access the tools to unlock the real me. My confidence levels have shot up and I have a much stronger sense of who I am and what I can contribute to the world.
