What Clients Say:
Karen coached me when I was at a career crossroads - wanting to make a significant move forward but scared to do so. As a patent attorney herself, Karen is very aware of the vulnerabilities that lie at the heart of a scientist/lawyer/perfectionist! Karen asked all the right questions to help me identify what was really holding me back and to get into action. A year later I am loving my new role and the challenges that it brings. I can highly recommend Karen as an insightful, non-judgemental coach.

Karen's coaching helped me to step effectively into my leadership role working in the Legal department of a large Pharmaceutical company. What I particularly appreciate about Karen is the way she seemingly effortlessly blends a variety of coaching tools into a seamless and confident, yet relaxed, style of coaching. She is adept at gaining clarity with the result that I’ve never felt that she has misunderstood the situation that I am bringing to coaching, on the contrary I always feel that she is “with me”. Her years of experience working in a large corporate law department are certainly being used to good effect here. She challenges when appropriate and keeps momentum going towards a change (in my way of thinking, in my awareness, in what I plan to do etc) to ensure progress. Karen brings with her into the coaching a positive aura which creates a great environment for exploration, and change for the better. Thank you, Karen!

Karen is truly an outstanding coach - professional, effective, caring and empathetic. I say this because not only have I been on the receiving end of her coaching, but I have witnessed her progression as she sought to be the best coach she could be. Her ability to cut through to the heart of the matter is truly amazing. I trust her and recommend her to my clients.

Time with Karen as a Coach is profound. Our sessions always left me walking away with 'unsolved questions' met with 'capability to solve'. Her impact lingers long after a session, and her practices are useful in all aspects of life. The signs of a great coach!
