Karen

Associate Trainer

My role

Currently I am a freelance trainer specialising in CSE, Trauma and Attachment, Safeguarding and Improving Wellbeing In The Work Place. I am extremely passionate about training and increasing people’s knowledge and I ensure that my training is informative, real, whilst also enjoyable. I have my own private counselling practice in North Yorkshire, specialising in Trauma, Abuse, Loss and Couple Relationships. I also work in local schools providing a safe environment for young people aged 11 to 16 to explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions.

My background

For 10 years I worked as an account manager in the corporate world, then decided I wanted to work in the community and increase my skill set. I decided to study for my counselling degree and coaching qualification whilst working for a community outreach charity, then went on to work for 3 years as project coordinator for the Time 2...Project in North Yorkshire, a specialist service for young people who were at risk of CSE. I have always had a passion for facilitation of training and working within the public sector.

A little bit personal about me

I am a self motivated passionate person, mum of 3 lovely young people. I enjoy walking, cooking and like nothing better than to have my home filled with family and friends.
