I am a certified NLP Life and Business Coach. I specialize in, amongst other interesting things, helping people create a balance in their professional life with their personal lives, whether you are starting out in your career or you have reached that fantastic stage of life called retirement. Life after work!

I work with people who want to improve their lives, or their business, in particular ways. Or maybe, they just want someone to listen!

I will help you set meaningful goals and put action plans in place in order to achieve your goals.

I focus on: career changes, taking your business to another level, maybe in losing weight, deepening the understanding of self or finding a new healthy relationship. Also, with developing new skills, e.g., time management, stress management and public speaking, even interview skills.

I also specialize in Diversity Management focusing on resolving issues and providing the platform to move forward and just celebrate diversity!

I use NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) to help you transform your life by you gaining better clarity on your life vision; your life purpose and values.  Using NLP, I will assist you in overcoming your limiting beliefs and gaining more self-confidence. How to handle difficult people and improving your leadership abilities in today’s world, are also what I offer.  With NLP techniques, I coach to deal with ‘pain’ from the past that seems to linger on, and shape you, even in adulthood. Self-doubt issues that influence who you are and seem to impact every facet of your life can be addressed.

It starts with embracing who you are and then creating a sense of balance so you can thrive at any stage of your life. I can help you enjoy your life more, help you to set your goals and then help you take real action towards achieving them, without sacrificing your soul to do this.

 I truly believe that each of us has the potential to create the life we want and deserve, and to be our true selves. But sometimes those barriers prevent us from moving and taking action. Sometimes we put those barriers there ourselves. I want to change that!

I live in the beautiful town of Hermanus, in the Western Cape, South Africa. I am inspired by the beauty of God’s creation around us to live my life to the fullest and to follow my passion in life.

I can provide coaching to help YOU live the life YOU have always dreamed of.


I am also a Transformation & Diversity Management Specialist and have worked in higher education for most of my career.   I am passionate about people, about my country of birth, South Africa, about effectively managing diversity in the workplace, about cultivating strong and good work ethics, about assisting others to achieve their goals and dreams.

Navigating today’s diverse workplace as a leader/business owner or an individual, a management style issue can impact on the bottom line. Here, working on what one already knows, to impact positively on one’s life is my goal. I truly believe that diversity creates value to both your business as well as contributes to nation-building.

Thank you for being a wonderful mentor, life coach and friend at the same time. You are everything one could look for in a good mentor. You groomed me to be sound professional on the career path which i want to embark on and made working with you an interesting and memorable experience. I will always be grateful to you for your support and kindness.

It would be impossible to count all the ways that you’ve helped me in my career path and  life in general. I appreciate all that you’ve done,  I only hope for the best achievements, and its all thanks to you.

Thanks you for guiding me on the right path. I will always be thankful to you.

Looking forward to be under your guidance again this year.

Be blessed.

It has brought a huge impact in my life because now I’m all about positive energy and I’ve established a business. I would like Karen to continue mentoring me if possible.

I really miss the coaching sessions. As you can remember that when we met for the first time, I was shy, rusty and with no confidence. But now I feel like I can face whatever challenges that might come on my way.

You helped me channel my goals in the right direction by using SMART criteria. You helped me build my confidence by the face to face meetings. Thank you for not giving up on me. I remember the first time we met, you were the only one speaking. I was just a listener, but now the communication is much better.

The Corona pandemic fooled me, I thought my goals have come to an end. But you opened my eyes that the pandemic has not stopped my goals, but is has only changed the way we use to do things.

There’s a lot to say about these coaching sessions. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity, I am looking forward to more and more of the coaching sessions.
