Hello there … welcome to my world, where your best self is just waiting to be unleashed.
I’m a corporate woman and ex-stress junkie turned intuitive business coach who knows how to get stressed-out business owners and professionals out of the mire of busy-ness + burnout and into their ideal flow of ease, brilliance and enjoyment at work. Oh, and to live a soul-led life. Hell yeah …
Essentially my work is business coaching and personal transformation – helping people like you evolve personally and thrive professionally. I’ve also been described as a high performance coach and a lifestyle design specialist. I’ll take it all.
Have you ever felt stressed, down, frustrated, overloaded, sad, mad or plain miserable and not known how to get out of it?
I have. I did. For a long time.
Have you pondered how other people seem to get on top of these things, have it all sussed?
Have you ever wondered if it’s even possible to change, or if in fact you’re going mad?
I did. I used to think that getting in charge of my own responses was the hardest thing in the world. I spent most of my teens and all of my 20’s trying to figure out how.
BUT it turns out that you really can change. And more easily than you might imagine.
I finally got some answers, worked out how, and experienced the transformation I’d been looking for.
And I want you to get it too.
Because you deserve to be your very best self. And you deserve to live the life you really want – not the ho-hum version, but the I-can’t-wait-to-get-my-butt-out-of-bed version.
We all deserve to be in charge of our life, our mind, our emotions – and to be happy.
I’m really glad you’re here, and you can find out more about why I’m here below.

My big vision is to make a difference to a million people. That is a pretty audacious goal, and I constantly muse on how I can make that happen. And it doesn’t just start with me. It starts with you.
Because you are innately brilliant, and I love helping people like you, tap into and grab hold of that inherent talent. And when you do, when you are being your most brilliant self, then you can really make a difference to others.
You at your best can make the world better.
As a leader, business owner, manager, advisor, mother, father, brother, sister, wife, husband, partner or friend, you make a difference to people every day. What kind of difference do you want to make? How about…
- When you’re confidently leading others through challenge or embracing new opportunities so everyone thrives.
- When you can think clearly under pressure, coming up with better ideas for your clients, your people, your business.
- When you can calmly ask a curious question in the middle of a heated argument, thus giving the other person the chance to share something meaningful with you that can turn the conversation around.
- When your naturally caring, positive self can shine through in even the most challenging situations, you can have an impact you never imagined.
Then you start to change your world.
Whoop! Let’s change the world.

ABOUT KAREN: ON A MORE PERSONAL NOTE
I am very lucky to live in the beautiful north island of New Zealand.
I love the outdoors – walking, hiking and beaching. I have danced since I was 5 years old (mostly classical contemporary which means we dance to anything from Beethoven and Brahms to African drums and everything in between).
I have practiced yoga for many years and love photography, films and reading delicious books. I love to cook.
I spend time exploring various spiritual teachings and healing practices.
I like to eat healthily, although I do believe chocolate and Parmesan cheese are major food groups.
