About My Practice


My gentle, body-centred approach offers relational healing and the growth of new internal resources, as we co-create deeper connection to self and other, and to our instincts and intuition.   Listening to our little one’s within is important for healing, integration and transforming early challenge and core isolation. Developing a coherent narrative, alongside self-care practices that are resourcing and regulating can be life-changing.

Babies (prenatal and born), children, parents, adults and families are supported to come into deeper balance and connection. Healthy family relationships, wise parenting and co-parenting are nurtured.

Reconnecting with our soul’s essence and purpose, as we heal unresolved issues, can support us to land more fully in our body, and come into deeper presence. Resolving challenges from the foundational period, from preconception to early infancy, is central in my work with all ages.

I’m a conscious early parenting advocate who supports preparation and attachment during preconception, a conscious conception and prenatal bonding. Early parenting prevents isolation and overwhelm, mitigates trauma, and provides a secure attachment buffer during this eventful time.

I’ve found that lasting change has come from a combination of talk therapy and somatic work. Karen Melton is a rare practitioners who has mastered both these realms. She is wise and articulate in her words, revealing that she has done her own work on her path to self-knowledge and acceptance. Her somatic hands-on skills border on genius. In addition to these rare gifts, Karen also has a big heart, and is very kind. She has helped my wife and I, and my children, to vastly improve the quality of our lives.

The Prenatal Roots of Attachment Dynamics – For Professionals

Attachment dynamics and embodiment are two constant experiential strands during our foundational period from Source to newborn. At its heart the preconception and prenatal periods provide the original embodiment template. Core foundational imprints are laid down during preconception, a developmental period that is relational.


Listening to Little One’s: The Prenatal Self

Little One’s are constantly speaking to us from our unconscious implicit memories. It is a non-verbal, somatic and energetic conversation that shows up in all aspects of our life and is affecting us, and those close to us, profoundly.


Love Your Baby Into Life – for Preconceptive & Pregnant Parents

Babies need parenting much earlier than has previously been known. Preconception preparation and connecting with your soul-baby, followed by prenatal bonding create a loving, welcoming, conscious experience for the family.


It has been my great pleasure to work with Karen. She embodies a wonderful combination of warmth, sensitivity and a great depth of understanding of depth psychology, attachment theory and pre and perinatal development. If you want work at your depth, at the root of your psychological, relational and/or spiritual issues, Karen is a wonderful resource and partner for supporting healing at these deepest levels.
