About Karen

I’ve worked therapeutically with individuals and groups for 38 years. It’s a privilege to support babies, children, adults and families in their deepest places. I began as a counsellor, completed a Diploma in Humanistic Psychology, trained in psychotherapy for a few years and spent several years in practice. After studying Tantra for two years I moved to California in 1997 to train in Somatic Pre- & Perinatal Psychology & Health (with Dr W. Emerson and Ray Castellino), which I’ve practiced for 20+ years.

I discovered pre and perinatal psychology when seeking healing for my own preconception and prenatal wounds which I realised, in my early twenties, were affecting my life profoundly. This work totally changed my life, and although it may sound dramatic, I wouldn’t be alive without it.

I trained as a Family Practitioner at the BEBA  clinic, Santa Barbara, CA (Ray Castellino’s model which includes and supports pre and perinatal material), and as a Cranial Sacral Therapist. I’ve  studied energy psychology for many years, and took levels 1 and 2 of Dr Gordon Neufeld’s Developmental Attachment training, and many other personal and professional growth explorations across time.

I’m very fortunate to love my work – I offer gentle, hands-on somatic work for pre-conceptive babies through adults, and professional supervision for pre- and perinatal practitioners and Family Practitioners. I’m an advocate for conscious early parenting from preconception through the prenatal period, and provide the Love Your Baby Into Life program for conscious early parents.

I’m a mother, and a grandmother.
