“Karin is an excellent coach and skillful consultant and combines both talents  effectively.  As a coach she allowed me to identify and develop my own thoughts and ideas, and at the same time provided excellent feedback.  As a consultant, she provided an interesting and effective variety of tools and techniques which helped me to focus on problems and solutions.

Within weeks, Karin skillfully guided me through the process of focusing and organizing my thoughts, energies and resources to the point that I developed a well defined plan to achieve realistic and attainable goals, and most importantly, goals that are compatible with who I am and what I want as a person.”

about Karin and her work

"Karin provided skillful life coaching, which shifted me from being completely stuck into being in high momentum, with all aspects of my life in a matter of weeks. She helped me to articulate goals and take steps towards each goal every day. My family, friends and mostly myself have been amazed at the unbelievable results. Karin's encouragement was the key for me to realize my potential at warp speed. I am forever grateful to her for this gift.

Karin is a wonderful resource if you are looking to improve your life. I learned so much from her and its obvious that she has many years of expertise. She is a very patient listener and has very appropriate tips and suggestions for your exact situation. I have a whole bunch of tools after my initial sessions with her that I am eager to try out. I can already see changes in the way I think, and how her help is allowing me to slowly move out of old self sabotaging patterns.
