About me

Hi, my name is Karen. I have been working with parents, families and children/ teenagers for about 20 years in various roles; overseas and in New Zealand.

I gained my Social Work qualification in Germany and am registered as a Social Worker in Germany and New Zealand. I am also a Triple P Practitioner, Functional Family Therapist and Parenting Coach.

I absolutely enjoy engaging with clients from different backgrounds and cultures to pass on my knowledge, ideas and skills around parenting and family relationships.

Being a parent of two children myself I understand how challenging kids' behaviours can be, how easy it is to get trapped in certain response patterns and how our own emotions or mindset can influence the way we react when struggles arise.

I see myself as a service to parents and families who want to make a change for their family for various reasons. Sometimes talking to friends or searching the internet for ideas is not enough.

So give me a call and I can certainly support you in doing things differently for the betterment of your loved ones.
