Karen is a Certified Money coach, a Time To Think Facilitator, a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, non-profit leader, and spiritual-seeker. Her passion is helping individuals, families, couples, social entrepreneurs and mission-based organisations wake up to their value and talents, so that they can contribute their very best to the world.
She gets people to their goals by releasing the suffering and tension around their relationship with money. Many years experience in nonprofit leadership & fund development – combined with her own glorious messiness and vulnerability uncovering her truth around money – make her intimately familiar with the struggles that people and organisations face.
As a money and life coach with over 20 years experience practicing and teaching meditation, she has worked extensively with big blocks such as fear, dissociation and betrayal that are common in people’s consciousness around money. She has lived and worked in Europe, Japan, Brazil and North America giving her a rich cultural and global understanding of money issues. Seeing the pain these cause – and the great difference people can make when free of them – has made her fiercely committed to helping people come to a place of flow and empowerment around money.
When she’s not engaged in her work, you’ll find her playing the Japanese bamboo flute, reading about art, design and history, and walking around feeling and sensing the world around her.
“Our natural tendency is to become habituated to the world around us, no longer to notice the familiar. We also substitute abstract names or preconceptions for the raw evidence of the senses. In mindfulness, the meditator methodically faces the bare facts of his experience, seeing each event as though occurring for the first time.”
