Personal Message from Karen:

"I am passionate about coaching. It works. I also believe in our inherent ability to be self-sufficient and to find our own best answers.

I want to give something back to the coaching profession which has been my inspiration and full time commitment for over twenty years. I remember how hard it was to work with 'real' clients following my coach training. Finding support and continuous learning was vital for me. I am still growing in confidence and deepening the belief in my skills.

My aim was to develop a method for reflective learning. So I have spent six years evolving, refining and validating the model with equally passionate colleagues and clients. My heartfelt thanks goes out to them.

By finding a way of blending emotional intelligence with digital technology, we have been able to create a highly cost-effective framework, which is available at any time. This innovation offers support and personal growth with each visit, keeping the coaching relationships on track, clean and powerful.

me:mycoach encourages the discipline of self-management or self-supervision. Its purpose is in provoking awareness and increasing coaching competency.
