Is wellbeing at the centre of your
Is it time to bring the wisdom of your own wellbeing to the centre of your decision-making? Are you interested to experience more of the qualities of peace and deeper fulfilment in your life, your family and your business.
Join our next wellbeing mini-course if you're curious to learn to put wellbeing at the centre of your thinking and decision-making. Come and be inspired by the enjoyable change you can bring to your life.
The wellbeing mini-course will give you practices to apply the wellbeing mindset validated by neuroscience to activate your most powerful states of wellbeing and creativity.
There are four (4) essential mental-emotional attitudes that comprise the wellbeing mindset
generosity, gratitude, compassion and contemplation (focus).
If you have experienced trauma or role-modelling in childhood that has impacted your ability to practice these four mental attitudes as foundational habits, then right now is the best time to start rewiring and reclaiming your most potent states of wellbeing.
YOU more than anyone in the world deserves your generosity, gratitude
compassion and focus. YOU.
Create the wellbeing, relationships and personal fulfilment that is calling you.
Success to me is about remembering to put wellbeing at the centre of everything I do in my business and at home, because the quality of my life depends on the quality of decisions I make. I've also noticed that when I create against my wellbeing, I see disappointing impacts for myself, other people and the world that I mourn.
Wellbeing at the centre puts my focus on how I’m getting where I’m going and why, and allows for the “where and what” (which are the outcomes I think I want) to drop into deeper alignment along the way.
I've learned that if I overlook the 'why and how' I can quickly become fixated on the outcome and not realise what I’m sacrificing in the process, which has caused big problems in my relationships and my work life. I tell myself it’s evident on the planet that I’m not the only one who’s been caught in the trap of "doing" that has had a less than life serving impact.
Having wellbeing at the centre means I’m able to focus my efforts with compassion and gratitude, in preference to attachment stress and self-punishment when things don’t turn out as I’d have liked. With the wellbeing mindset I’m able to be generous with myself as a learner and celebrate my contributions along the way, rather than waiting for rewards at the end that may not turn out to be what I actually wanted.

Focusing as steadfastly as possible on your wellbeing mindset rather than fixating on your "issues and problems" will begin to return you to a deeper experience of your personal power...
which directly increases your capacity and creativity to implement on what you do want, rather than being caught in the fear spiral and distress of magnifying what you don't.
What's in the mini-course?
We'll start with checking your Narrative
Do you have a wellbeing narrative that you're aware of? My wellbeing narrative says we are all unique expressions of wellbeing in a grand natural wellbeing ecosystem... that we are learning together how we relate with that reality in ourselves and each other for the greatest benefit of the whole. My narrative also says that where there’s trauma and fear instead of an experience of wellbeing, that the cause of that suffering lives in the thinking.
We'll check your Mindset
The neurosciences say that wellbeing is a learnable set of attitudes comprising of generosity, gratitude, compassion & contemplation (focus). When you are deeply relaxed these states can occur naturally. When you are triggered by your programmed attitudes instead, your "more enjoyable sense of self" is much more difficult to access. The mini-course offers a safe container and a practice space to explore the benefits of a wellbeing mindset.
We'll also practice soothing your Nervous System
Somatic work suggests that your thinking is always expressing itself in your physical body. If you are anxious in your body for example, it’s highly likely you are thinking anxious thoughts and visa versa. When we welcome the sensations in our bodies we are often gifted with shifts towards greater comfort in both body and mind.
“Karen brings so much love to the work that she does and has an uncanny ability to speak to all aspects of your being. Highly recommend working with this beautiful soul”
- Bridget Blackford
"Karen's capacity to really hear the essence of what I am trying to say and reflect it back to me better than I could have said it myself is a truly exceptional gift and has been very supportive of my process"
- Alistair McKinnon
“"I began working with Karen to learn some strategies for helping my clients to self-advocate in challenging workplaces, but this work is much more. It’s not only a philosophy, but also a methodology, a new way of being and speaking that is truly empowering.”

Benefits of the mini-course
Increase your focus on your self-talk so you advocate with more kindness for your wellbeing with yourself.
See your past efforts with greater appreciation and have compassion for the impacts of your coping strategies.
Deepen your sense of honouring the gifts in your ‘underworld' feelings... anger, guilt, fear, shame and depression and begin to see how you can welcome the wisdom in them as beacons for your transformation.
Wellbeing is learnable
practicing nonviolent communication as a language strategy directly accesses the part of the brain that will support our application of the 4 attitudes of the wellbeing mindset.
once we have our mindset and our narrative aligning with greater wellbeing, we can see quickly from the outcomes in different aspects of our lives where we can begin to implement new habits, free from the constraints of our previous patterns of thinking.
we are interconnected in our social contexts of family, work and community and therefore wellbeing is based on our ability to collaborate and apply our attitudes in our relationships with others too.
