WHAT I OFFER
Green Space Life Coaching offers one to one coaching – indoors and outdoors and team building workshops outdoors
In one to one coaching, a client typically chooses an issue or part of their life they would like to focus on and explore. I listen, observe and ask open questions that ignite that person’s best thinking, helping them to find their own solution and way forward.
I recommend on average 4 to 6 sessions over a period of 2 to 3 months to make change sustainable. It is also fine to have more sessions over a longer time frame, checking in every few months or longer to discuss progress and self development and to come for just 1 or 2 sessions if you feel you need support with a specific situation or issue.
It is important to me that my coaching work is as inclusive as possible and available to a broad range of people with low to high income. I like to encourage potential clients to speak to me about their particular circumstances if their financial situation stops them from taking up sessions.
Free 30 minute taster session
Finding the right life coach for you is important. That’s why I offer all new clients a free 30 minute taster session to make sure that my approach works best for you.

1:1 coaching while walking in one of London parks on Fridays and Saturdays year round, as well as Thursday and Friday evenings during British Summer Time (April– September). Sessions run for 1 hour.
I usually arrange a mutually convenient green space with my clients for the session. London has lots of green spaces to offer such as Hyde Park, Hampstead Heath, Kensington Palace Gardens, Green Park and St James Park to name just a few. It doesn’t matter how big the park – coaching in nature works in any green space.
What to wear: Please wear sturdy shoes, trainers or walking boots, warm clothes (layers work well) as well as raincoat. Please bring a rucksack instead of a shoulder bag if you carry things as it allows you to walk more freely.
TEAM BUILDING WORKSHOPS OUTDOORS
Many of us spend most of our time sitting at a desk, looking at the computer screen. Very few jobs involve moving around any more, let alone being in or moving around in natural green spaces. Going for a walk, cycle ride, having a picnic or just lying in the grass in our local park or in the countryside can be deeply grounding and have a soothing effect on our well-being.
Green Space Life Coaching’s team building workshops tap into the energy of the outdoors to enhance team creativity, motivation and connection.
Karen’s commitment to enable personal and group learning through interaction with the natural environment produces workshop outcomes beyond other ‘Away Day’ approaches that I have experienced. Clare Joy, Cooperative Key Worker, Organiclea
