• I love how Karen conducts her coaching with integrity, never letting me wriggle my way out of a tight corner. Anyone open to making some positive changes in their life would benefit from spending time with her.
    Belinda
    Karen coached me on a very complicated moment of my life when I had to make some important decisions, and was able to make me organize my thoughts in a very positive way. I would highly recommend her.
    Andrea
    Karen has great coaching skills. She is a great listener and I would recommend coaching to anybody who is undergoing a career change or progression.
    Katja
    A year on from my coaching I still feel able to draw on our sessions to move forward with my goals. I’d wholeheartedly recommend Karen to help them achieve their work and personal goals.
    Jo
    Karen was great at listening to my issues and working with me to set some achievable (yet stretching) objectives. She came prepared to each of our sessions which I valued as it made each one as effective as it could be.

    If I was to expand my business, Karen Conway would be the first person I would hire. Trouble is I would probably not be able to because her own business is already taking off. Karen has extraordinary management skills and is a first-rate coach.

    My coaching experience was amazing, I enjoyed every moment of it, grown so much as a person and learnt a lot about myself. I feel comfortable with myself now. I am much happier with my choices, job, relationships and with myself.
    Kayleigh
    I felt enabled to clarify my thinking and wishes and therefore make a decision in connection with my working life. I had a sense of openness and possibility because of the river just outside. Even after the first session I was clearer.

    Karen’s coaching was such a positive experience for me. I am now confident that everything is happening as it should. Karen quickly sets a warm, encouraging environment. Thank you for everything, you have been such a guiding light.
    Natalie
    I have delivered several coaching workshops with Karen. They got the best feedback for any workshops I’ve been involved with. She is an adventurous, committed coach.. I love working with her and she has really helped me develop my coaching skills.

Me

Having realised that teaching wasn’t quite for me, back in 2002 I joined The School of Coaching as a Project Manager, working closely with the founder Myles Downey – who is the author of the book ‘Effective Coaching’.

Participating in the schools’ flagship programme got me well and truly hooked on this new world of coaching and it’s then that – as cheesy as it sounds – IKaren photo realised I’d found my path and my calling.

I took a few years to gain more life experience in Australia and London before embarking on my journey as a fully-fledged coach in 2008. I’m now an independent Personal Clarity Coach & Creative Facilitator and I work with both individuals and groups – which I love!

I coach men and women of all ages and walks of life who want to gain more confidence, clarity and life balance – both personally and professionally – to achieve a happier and more fulfilling life. My clients have ranged from classical conductors and musicians, to lawyers, teachers and creative entrepreneurs.

I lead two Meetup groups in London: Professional Procrastinators and Creative Procrastinators for people who are desperate to get unstuck, stop feeling overwhelmed and make more exciting stuff happen!

I also volunteer as a Personal Development Worker with the charity Step Forward, providing 1:1 coaching as well as designing and facilitating workshops for young people. I’ve also spent time volunteering as a Careers Coach with CDG (the Careers Development Group) supporting long-term jobseekers get into employment.

I have designed and facilitated Introduction to Coaching Skills workshops for Careers Advisers who work for various universities in London as well as Career Development workshops for postgraduate students at King’s College London – where I’ve also been a member of the Staff Coaching Support Service.

My approach is professional, positive and encouraging. I’m a good listener and want to understand your own map of the world to ensure you get the most from working with me. I will challenge you and believe in you, even during the times where you doubt yourself.
