Karen is the author of ‘From Bullied to Brilliant’ and Director of Powerful Positive People. A qualified Trainer of NLP and Time Line Therapy® Coach, Karen helps adults, children, performers and athletes overcome confidence and self-esteem issues.

Karen has a deep understanding of bullying and social isolation, through both her professional and personal experiences. Experiencing bullying and isolation at school she struggled with self confidence before moving from Manchester to the Ivory Coast in tropical West Africa aged 15. There she faced further isolation and ostracisation as a result of language and cultural differences and ultimately learned not only how to overcome the challenges but thrive. As the mother of three school-aged children, she also understands the pressures families face when bullying becomes an issue.

Karen’s book ’From Bullied to Brilliant’ helps parents, educators and victims of bullying understand how a change in thinking can end the bully-victim cycle be you child, adult or parent.

The world is full of questions, but ultimately, our answers lie within.
