About Karen

I’ve worked therapeutically with individuals and groups for 38 years, and it’s a privilege to support people in their deepest places. I began as a youth counsellor, got a Diploma in Humanistic Psychology and then took some psychotherapy training followed by several years in practice. I studied Tantra for two years before moving to California in 1997 to train in Somatic Pre- & Perinatal Psychology & Health (with Dr W. Emerson and Ray Castellino), which I’ve now practiced for 20 years.

I came to 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 the pre and perinatal material) and  as a Cranial Sacral Therapist. I’ve also studied energy psychology for many years, and took levels 1 and 2 of Dr Gordon Neufeld’s Developmental Attachment training.

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 run a Love Your Baby Into Life program for conscious early parents.

I’m a mother, and a grandmother.
