"Lovely session. Very useful in terms of having focus for progression in life and looking at whys, hows and what next. Karen’s manner was lovely and all questions answered in detail and with a smile. I can imagine having a very useful 1 to 1 with Karen, but she was (also) excellent in a group environment. Overall a very enlightening afternoon."
''Karen is an extremely professional and knowledgeable facilitator and Life Coach. Having worked with her over several months, the extent of her experience and wisdom has helped me enormously come to terms with my past, make the best of my present and move encouragingly into my future. At every session I came away with a 'nugget' of information with which to work and integrate into my day to day life. Over time, these 'nuggets' have proved priceless. Her approach is not only based on her considerable skill, but also on a compassionate platform which enabled me to feel safe and supported at all times. I have no hesitation in recommending her.”
"Karen’s teaching is very open and highly impressive. Very easy to follow and understand. Really enjoyed the experience!”
"Thank you so much for the sessions. You have such a calm and reassuring manner and your advice and tasks are so clearly explained that I found them easy to follow. From the very first session I came away feeling so positive and by the 3rd, I felt I could deal with most things and had a new zest for life. I have found the tapping really useful and again, easy to follow and put into practice. I have taken on board the advice you have given me and am determined to continue to work on the areas that have been pinpointed .Thank you again for everything. I felt at rock bottom when I met you and I am so grateful for the help you have given me. "
"Before I had a session with Karen I was terrified of spiders. I saw them as massive, ugly things with horrible 8 legs. I would panic if I saw one. Using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) with Karen helped to reduce the panic and see spiders in amore humorous way. I can now look at spiders without going into a panic and actually stay in the same room as them. Im still not particularly keen on them but EFT has greatly helped to reduce my phobia of them."

"The help and support I have received from Karen has been invaluable. The techniques she has taught me have enabled me to continue to recover; to regain control of my emotional wellbeing and equipped me with tools to use to enable me to take better care of myself throughout the rest of my life. I have come from having no idea if I could ever face the world again to now being back in full time employment, making a contribution to the lives of family and friends once more and looking forward to life with more confidence. Karen has played a major part in my successful recovery and I will always be grateful to her."
"I have never had any kind of Life Coaching before, it was a completely new experience. I was at a point in my life when i hoped that someone else could guide me through where i was and encourage me to think of where i was going. Karen did just that. It was amazing and a real eye opener, Karen was very gentle and with her caring manner got me to thinking about me. I had no idea how lost I was in amongst my job and my business. Give it ago, im glad i did. Thank you Karen"

"(Assertion workshop) "..presentation was sharp and uncluttered. Karen knew her subject and presented it in an interesting, absorbing and engaging way which encouraged a great deal of enthusiastic participation. Her definitions were clear, understandable and logical .... employed realistic and achievable techniques".
Devon County Council
"I was feeling a bit stuck and found being able to voice my thoughts in a non-judgemental atmosphere helpful, I now feel motivated and more in control of my life. With Karens encouragement, both when we met and by emails between sessions, I have accomplished a lot of things that felt overwhelming before. Together we came up with an action plan which I found easy to follow there was no pressure from her just gentle nudges in the right direction! "
"Excellent morning(NLP workshop). Didnt know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised! Great techniques and fun trying them out. Will practice at home and also do more reading on the subject. Looking forward to Part II!!."
"The sessions I took part in with Karen were of great benefit to both my mood at the time and managing myself better in the future. They gave me an insight into ways of combatting my negative thoughts and methods of keeping them at bay through practical, realistic solutions."
M C Business Development Manager
" You have helped me to think of myself and life in general differently and to try and find positives in every situation. Obviously this is going to take time but I shall persevere with it and feel confident that it will be of great help. I feel very much that you have given me the tools and now it is up to me to put them to use. So thanks again, you’re a very gifted and understanding person. "
"Karens "NLP training opened up new ways to work with my colleagues"."
"NLP workshop - "well presented and well paced. Clear information provided. Good working dynamic built up quickly"."
"NLP workshop -"very clear and measured manner, circulated the group well so always felt you could ask questions.""
"NLP workshop -although I knew a little about NLP this workshop has helped me put it into context of my workplace; particularly as we do ecounter aggression and challenging behaviour."
"NLP workshop - the exercises broke the day up and made it more fun and helped to understand by experience rather than being talked to. I have definately learnt new skills that I can apply to everyday both at home and work."
"Being mentored by Karen has been a really enjoyable experience. She has kept me focused, made useful suggestions, helped me to open up my thinking in various areas and made sure I’m aware of the progress I’ve made. And she’s done all this with a light touch. I would definitely recommend working with her. Beyond this, just having access to someone who can focus dispassionately on what I’m doing has been of enormous benefit. "

"Re NLP workshop - Absolutely brilliant, thank you Karen. I really enjoyed the whole day. Very confident and engaging tutor, entertaining and inspiring. It was great to use my new skills with other people who are interested in NLP."
"Re: NLP workshop - thoroughly enjoyed the session. You have helped me remember things and taught me some excellent skills that I can use in my everyday life. "
"I have benefited from the time I have spent with Karen. It has been useful to take time out and to get a clearer view on how I do things and see what my limiting patterns and beliefs are. Karen is supportive and focused. I think I would probably have got more out of the sessions if I could have come every week! "
K Armitage Homeopath
" Prior to coaching I felt stuck and unable to make decisions but after 4 coaching sessions I now feel a lot happier in myself and have far more energy. I specifically found exploring underlying values of great sense to me. I have now been able to start making decisions again and focus a bit more on my needs. "
H Graham, Barnstaple
"I have spent more time today asking myself what I would like to be/do etc than any other period in my life before. Thank you"
"I felt nervous to begin with as I didn know what to expect. Karen held the space well (in the workshop)and made us feel comfortable and at ease. I enjoyed the whole workshop and found out more about myself.... I would definitely do another of Karens workshops. "
Katrina, N Devon
"Very, very knowledgeable about subject, felt very safe and able to be open and honest.... helped me to be more self-aware"
"I would like to say thank you for helping me see the way forward in my career, there were a few things that I knew I needed to do but I kept putting obstacles in the way and was too afraid to make a change. Karen helped me to think about my thoughts differently. Karen helped me to gain confidence which in turn showed me that I can make changes which I have been stuck in for years. I feel so much more positive than I have for years and I have achieved all the things that I set out to do."
S. Reed Holistic Therapist
"Very positive and a great deal fitted into a fairly short time. Like the points to take away such as "anchors" "affirmatons" etc - something to get hold of. Much enjoyed - a lower handicap may be beckoning. "
"I thought your presentation was excellent. I know that at times I almost talk myself out of playing a good game of golf. Today I played with a much more positive attitude ie. dismissing the bad shots and being pleased with the good ones. Thank you, Karen "
D Dalton (golfer)
"I found this workshop very interesting. I had initially thought that it would be a few hours about "reflecting" on areas of my life to become better balanced. However, I was pleased to find out that it was a few beneficial hours focusing on what is already good. I see I actually have a well balanced life, but will be making some personal goals. I found the anxiety spiral very useful, I can relate totally to this and will carry the idea of breaking this up and feeling less stressed."
"I found this to be a really interesting talk, and will take much on to the golf course with me!"
"When I came to Karen for coaching I was very unhappy in my current employment. I was training in my free time with a view to becoming self-employed however the disatisfaction with my job was draining my energy, sapping my motivation and confidence and affecting my health. I was really stuck, feeling that I would never have the energy to get my new business off the ground. One coaching session with Karen provided a way forward. With skilful questioning and challenging Karen was able to guide me to the solution that an interim job would free me of this negativity. Over the following weeks I received support with my new business plans, became much more motivated, have a new job, joined Pilates classes and now have more energy to focus on my future business."
"I cannot thank Karen enough for being my sounding board and listening with care and skill to my problems, helping me make sense of it all. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who is unsure of which way to turn. "
