Founder & CEO
Karen’s story is one of triumph against all odds. Her childhood and perspective on life were deeply marred by growing up in a very abusive and dysfunctional family. Even though she was a top student, Karen was made to feel less than adequate every day. This made her retreat into a world of self-doubt and isolation.
It was a challenge to live day-to-day. Life had become almost unbearable.
At 14 Karen decided to leave home and school. She was taken in by a loving foster family who believed in her and gave her a reason to live. They showed kindness and provided spiritual and physical support.
Karen returned to school and went on to successfully study Health and Care, Counselling and Human Relationships at college. She eventually turned her life experiences and new studies into life coaching skills. They enabled her to confidently encourage others to build on every opportunity. To show people how to rise above their personal circumstances, no matter how complicated. These skills formed the foundation of her life motto: to inspire others to believe in themselves.
“What I’ve learnt over time is that while believing in yourself is important, working with passionate, dedicated people to build a business, bond a community or help those less fortunate than yourself is one of the greatest feelings you can ever know”.
