About me

Shiatsu Wellbeing Teacher (Qi Gong, Yoga & Meditation)

Karen specialises in building resilience and wellbeing through Shiatsu, collaborative workshops, classes and sessions online and in-person.  Empowering individuals with own skills to transform stress into motivation and true connection with self and others to live a more meaningful and integrated life every day.

Focus is to instil a natural ability to heal, be happy and make better decisions to Thrive Inside

Qi Gong and Gung Fu training nearly two decades ago evoked a deep insight into strengthening and balancing mind, body and heart. Shiatsu sparked the key to sharing this powerful wisdom so others could tap into their own energy and creativity to heal themselves.

Exchanged rewarding role teaching English to asylum seekers and vulnerable adults for dedicating myself to Shiatsu and Qi Gong. Qualified practitioner status with European Shiatsu School after three years. Registered teacher and Fellow member of the Shiatsu Society UK. Skills are enriched through martial arts, Thai Massage, Yoga, Seiki, specialised Shiatsu courses and teachings from Michael Rose: Shiatsu Society co-founder.  More importantly, facing my own obstacles and personal challenges allows a more considerate sensitivity to those I work with

Experience within corporate and public sectors with many generations, cultures and countries: mental health, Shiatsu colleges, adult and child education, schools, universities, asylum seekers and refugees and workplace health and wellbeing initiates.

This precious gift; my passion impels me to inspire you to feel that joy of discovering your own unique potential.

"More acceptance"

"I've been seeing Karen for a number of years now for numerous symptoms from neck, shoulder & lower back ache to pregnancy related Sciatica & pure relaxation. Whenever I see Karen I always feel extremely relaxed afterwards.  She always manages to relieve my symptoms. After one session since suffering with Sciatica, it really relieved the pain and I find it alot easier to walk.  Highly recommend a Shiatsu with Karen. You will feel on top of the world!"
