“We’re going through a pandemic and I’m in a better space than I was before it. I’m content and in a good space to support my staff which is important to me to be able to do. I’m really pleased.”
Alex Mitch, Owner, DPF Solutions
“Karen is amazing!! With her help I have learnt how to manage my stress levels both in my personal life and work life, and have been able to enjoy both a lot more. Karen’s techniques and lessons are very inspiring and helpful with her amazing knowledge. As soon as I met Karen I instantly felt more relaxed and able to focus and manage more efficiently. Thanks again Karen you really do work wonders.”
Lauren Daly, South Island Area Manager
“My coaching with Karen has given me more clarity about what I want to achieve, and how to communicate that to the team. My two hours a month is well worth the investment!”
Fred Soar, Managing Director, Soar Print
“I have been doing internal work for a long time but was not having much luck with traditional methods. I was tired of analysing the past and wanted to look instead towards the future. With Karen I have made leaping positive changes in weeks on issues that I had been carrying my whole life. My whole outlook is slowing changing and for the first time in life I am looking toward the future with enthusiasm and anticipation. Karen is the best investment in my future that I have ever made.”
“Two days after Karen and I met, I headed into a 2-day leadership conference where I spoke to over 220 Gen-I managers. I’m happy to report I felt relaxed, present, authentic, and my presentation just flowed effortlessly. In just two coaching sessions Karen helped me create a stronger sense of peace to carry with me as I go about my work and life.”
Sally Mabelle, Leadership Speaker + Past President of NSANZ (Auckland Chapter)
“I’d like to take the opportunity to give you some feedback about how I am feeling in these tough times, and to be honest, I am feeling … great! It feels a bit wrong to admit that at the moment with so much suffering around the globe, but the work we did together last year has really helped me keep perspective on all the challenges that I am facing right now, and my stress levels are generally very low. I feel like I am being as productive as I possibly can be, and my frame of mind is helping me make good decisions (for me and for everyone around me) in the current situation.”
Peter Sewell, Director
“When I began I feared it would be awkward and I would not make the gains I have done. This didn’t happen and I continue to make progress. I wanted to change the internal ‘tapes/messages’ causing undue pressure. Now I feel confident, calm and have MUCH greater self-awareness. My communication skills have improved markedly. There is more clear thinking as a result and better decisions.
I’m most pleased with my communication, my sense of self and my ability to be calm when I need to model this for my team.
This work will change your life! Thank you, Karen. The work with you has taught me much and impacted me enormously. Talk soon.”
“Ahhh, what a relief! After years of struggling with various issues around confidence and stress at work I spent a few sessions with Karen and it’s transformed both the results I get and the quality of life I lead.”
Nick, Product Manager, Auckland
“I wanted to become a better coach, improve my effectiveness, work well with other personalities, and how to manage my health and wellbeing better. I feel I have grown in all these areas and learnt new skillsets. I’ve learnt techniques to assist with everything from managing my day to handling difficult situations.
I’m working on the business more, rather than caught in the whirlwind. I’m making better progress and completion times with key tasks. I would say if you don’t have a life/business coach yet, you need to call Karen Ross.”
Peter Lloyd, Sales Manager, Soar Print
“The work Karen has done with me so far has helped me immensely. Firstly, I have broken through a bout of severe depression that I had been suffering for months. It is hard to describe how grateful I am to have found myself again.”
I wanted to work on my self confidence and ability to deal with feedback – to believe the positive and objectively process the negative. Both are much improved. I also feel more aware of my reactions and thought patterns generally, and that my perception is not reality. This has been a great way to gain deep insight into what takes you forward and what holds you back. Thank you for a very worthwhile process.
“I found the workshop to be extremely uplifting and insightful! It gave a different perspective on stress/pressures and ways to cope with them internally to minimise the impact. A very worthwhile course and would definitely recommend to others!
Mel Shaw, Senior Tax Consultant, KPMG
“It’s absolutely amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever gone ten days without feeling stressed and overwhelmed. And my boss has also noticed.
M. Hammond, Services Manager
“The programme has supported me tremendously at a time of a very large and fast change at work. Don’t under-estimate how much of an impact a programme and work like this can have on you, the direction of your business and what you think is possible. The blended nature and having it spread out over a few months has helped me to sustain change. The mix of practical do-able tools, as well as reflection and coaching, provides a balance between insights and skills. As well as a lot of practical and useful tools and processes, what I have gotten most out of the programme has been some large shifts through the coaching and workshop sessions, in ways I couldn’t have anticipated.”
Mark Carley, Owner, Hire Plants
“The combination of theory and practical exercises made the workshop session fun and interactive, with a measurable outcome. Very enjoyable.”
Peter Lamont, Telecom
I thought the content was very relevant for our staff and I was able to walk away with practical tools I could immediately implement to aid me in managing my state of mind and reduce stress in all aspects of my life. I felt that you were quick to gain the confidence and trust of the audience, and getting a room full of accountants to participate so fully is no easy task.”
Debra Ryan, HR Manager, BDO Auckland
“I was extremely impressed from two different perspectives … Karen’s presentation style was extremely engaging with a good combination of humour and professionalism. Secondly, her presentation content was interesting and gave me some extremely practical (and surprisingly simple) tools to take away with me.
Justina Knox, Botherway Legal
“I would like to offer my most sincere thanks to you for my ‘marathon’ breakthrough session last Tuesday. That was possibly the most valuable six hours of my life! I returned to fulltime work yesterday, and my colleagues just cannot believe the changes in me…”
“I come out of a session with Karen feeling like I’ve just had a great big shower of joy.”
“I’m feeling so at peace with me and who I am. Thank you for your help in creating a clear clean space and I look forward to the future and the rest of my life.
“I was a little nervous at the start, thinking this sounds so great, but what if it doesn’t work for me? The changes I’ve experienced have made such a difference to my life … and have brought me so much closer to my work mates.”
“You have empowered me with tools that I will be using for a lifetime and I look forward to an amazing future. NLP rocks!”
