Ready to bring peace, calm and joy back into family life?
I believe every parent can be the parent they want to be and live the family life they truly desire.
If you’re ready for change, start today.
It’s never too late to choose connection and build strong relationships with your kids.
Longing for peace and calm?
There are days that seem like one endless battle of wills. You’re trying to be mindful of your child’s needs but your ideas for peaceful resolutions – and your patience – are at an end. You feel like your kids won’t listen, you get frustrated and start to lose it. You want a better way to communicate with your kids. Without the power struggles.
Want to sleep at night knowing you got this?
You’ve tried all the well-meaning advice and different parenting strategies – and nothing really helps. You need someone you can turn to and not feel judged or overwhelmed, to know that your kids are ok and you’re doing a good job as a parent. So that you don’t lie awake at night worrying.
Frustrated by sibling rivalry?
It feels like your kids will never stop fighting. Who sat down for breakfast first, who was the last one to stroke the cat, who dared to look at her brother while he was eating, who even dared to breathe…You want to help them get along so you can enjoy your time as a family.
Struggling with juggling everyone’s needs?
You’re trying to be everything and do everything for everybody and you’re burned-out. You want to find that balance between giving your kids everything they need – and caring for yourself. So that you can smile again, enjoy your family – and not have to hide in the bathroom when it all gets too much.
Want things to change – and you don’t know how?
You want a close and joyful relationship with your kids and everyday family life isn’t easy! Your kids press your buttons and you don’t always stay calm. You want to spend less time and energy feeling angry, guilt and shame, and more time and energy connecting with your kids.
Wondering what happened to the old you – and not sure who the new you is?
You have the life you always dreamed of – but you’re not feeling it. It’s time to breathe and let go, reconnect with yourself and find out who you are and what you want. So that you can embrace, create and enjoy the (family) life you truly desire.
You’re not alone.
And no-one needs a perfect parent.
I can help you get a fresh perspective and find a new path that works for you and your family.

What others parents say about my coaching
Totally fabulous! You are really wonderful; very approachable, easy to connect with online. I felt immediately comfortable being vulnerable with you about my parenting insecurities, and trusted your experience. It’s clear that you are a pro, you asked very insightful and clarifying questions. I felt immediately understood and supported, and left with real and actionable info.
Working with Karen really helped me!
Karen’s very likeable and had a way of making me feel very comfortable. As a coach, she not only shared her knowledge but saw me as as a person. She connected with me on a personal level, which enabled me to build trust. She was well prepared for our sessions and introduced each topic thoughtfully, which I think is really important when talking about emotional topics like children, being a mum, and relationships. She listened carefully to me and was attuned to my way of thinking. Karen has a great deal of expert knowledge and offered new ways of seeing things that all made a lot of sense to me. I left our coaching sessions with lots of new ways of thinking as well as a concrete idea of what I could do differently in our everyday family life. I always felt as though she was listening to me and that she was hearing me. That was very helpful and exactly what I want as a client.
Karen’s very empathetic and a great coach who finds wonderful words.
Can highly recommend! Karen’s great!
