About Karen

Trusted Experience:

As a coaching professional with over 20 years experience in the health and wellness industry, I help individuals remove ineffective programming and customise how they ‘operate’ both personal and professionally so they are happier in every area of their lives. 

What I Do:

I am in the business of possibilities – above all, I am a belief changer!!  Through my unique and effective coaching style you can gain that inner belief to connect and communicate more effectively and most importantly, gain the belief that you can BE what they want to be.

With the innerGPS,  you are empowered to step out of the shadows of your past and stand in your own power.

Modes of service:

  • 1:1 sessions – in person or online.
  • Workshops, webinars,  & private online programs 
  • Keynote speaking

Some background 

We can spend our grown up lives not quite present, almost asleep to our true potential.  It wasn’t until the birth of my second child when my near death experience served as my ‘awakening’.  During those 26 minutes when the hospital team tried to resuscitate me, I gained many insights into the limiting beliefs that I was operating from as a result of childhood emotional trauma.  (Early childhood emotional trauma can effect us all to a greater or lesser degree.  As children, we try to rationalise emotional upset,  and we take on beliefs about ourselves, others and the world we live in, in order to make sense of what is happening.)

I had already embraced the personal development world by completing Counselling Skills with Maynooth University and qualifying as a Journey Therapist.

After my recovery, I embarked on a further  several years of training with a variety of therapies and modalities including NLP and CBT along with qualifying as a Radical Forgiveness Coach. 

My corporate background is 16 years in HR working for a multi-cultural company in Saudi Arabia.  I enjoyed working with a wide range of staff from diverse cultural backgrounds.  My avid interest in communication led me to Toastmasters where I received various awards including District Toastmaster of the Year & Distinguished Toastmaster.    As a member of Professional Speakers Association, I also received the accolade of  Professional Speaker of the Year.  I have also completed advanced training as a Speaker Coach and also Training & Development. 

I currently live in Baltinglass, Co. Wicklow, with my husband Fran and our 3 amazing children.

The innerGPS System

With these years of research and practice,  I developed this innerGPS system – a powerful program of self-enquiry, mental and emotional support.  These dynamic techniques and strategies are designed to help you find the real you and experience life as you are meant to live it — with happiness, prosperity and optimism.

When you boldly explore your inner world, heal emotional trauma; uncover your sabotaging primitive roadmap and discover your true innerGPS, you too can live the life you’re supposed to be living. The one you have dreamed about, or the one you suspect is out here waiting for you, even if you don’t know what that looks like yet.

Together, we will work on making powerful shifts with your mindset, motivation and confidence.  You can navigate with mental clarity, success and happiness with your innerGPS!
