About Integrative Coaching

“My life coaching experience with Karen was truly transformative. Karen gently guided me to face unconscious fears or beliefs that were sabotaging my relationships and preventing me from receiving more love and abundance in my life. I was able to become more aware of all the places in my life that I am settling or “playing small”. I continue to reflect on my work with Karen as I face new opportunities and challenges in my life.” (T.H.)

“I am still reflecting on our session from Monday…I must tell you that it had impact on my life.  I felt cared for… something I have not felt for some time. Thank you for your caring, honesty, compassion and wisdom.  My god, Karen, like a laser beam you were able to hone in on the core issues in my life in a few moments of dialogue with me.  Thank you for your expertise and giftings.  I feel blessed … I am thankful to the Creator for connecting me with you and I hope we can work together more … Sending thankful love your way… “(S.G.)

“I enjoyed the fact that I was in the comfort of my own home and surroundings. I learned to trust you as a coach and confide my inner secrets and insecurities. You helped me to see where my past shaped who I was and who was at the centre of that. You helped me admit who I was even though it was hard to do so.  You helped me to forgive and love unconditionally when I needed to do that the most. “(A.T.)

“I’ve been involved with Miracles! for over 11 years. I can honestly say that working with Karen and the book study groups has changed my life. I am now able to understand how I create my life and when I bring an issue into my existence and why I do. Through the personal growth work I have come to the realization that I am not a victim, that I have full responsibility over my life and how I choose to live it. This knowledge has enabled me to work through issues with a clear, conscious mind and to not blame others for what my energy has drawn to me.  The quest for an authentic life is supported by many loving, skilled and knowledgeable people and Karen has been one of the most supportive and loving mentors for me. Her enthusiasm for this work inspires others to look beyond the surface and dig to the gold below.” (C.C.)

“Integrative coaching has helped me uncover beliefs I have that stop me from having the life I desire. I am learning how to change those beliefs to support my goals. I am learning to feel my emotions and to value my own opinions and how to share them with others. It has been a phenomenal journey.” (B.D.)

~

“If you are serious about reaching your full potential this coaching program is a wonderfully effective way to do it! It changed my life by allowing me to connect with the various aspects of me I had forgotten. It is an awesome program! It has brought me a long way in a short time. I would definitely recommend it!” (R.K.)

~

“If anyone had told me my life could change so much I never would have believed them! I can’t believe the confidence I have gained … the relationships I have healed … the dreams I am pursuing … and the joy I am inviting into my life! I am so grateful for the wisdom I gain through coaching! Thank you!!” (K. L.)

~

“Integrative coaching has been an amazing journey of self-discovery. I’ve been able to see the gifts in even my worst qualities and how to embrace my best. The coaches created such a loving, safe, inspiring place to work in, I couldn’t help but soar to new heights.” (L.W.)


 

About Book Study Groups

“The personal growth that I have experienced through the study groups with Miracles! has been tremendous. Learning to shift my perspective, finding the gifts in life’s challenges and being able to give gratitude, are skills that have enriched every aspect of my life. Self love and healing are two of the greatest gifts that I have ever given to myself! Thank you Karen!” (K.F.)

~

“I can’t even begin to count all the moments that I’ve recalled a “nugget of wisdom” that you have freely and lovingly shared … Karen, it is with tears stinging my eyes, a lump forming in my throat and a heart full of love and gratitude to you and the work that you do that have enabled me to grow, to learn, to step outside of my comfort zone and most importantly to heal the little girl with in. I’ve embraced that I’m a Child of God and deserve to be treated as such! I am a “loving work” in progress and continually strive to become a better mother, wife, friend, and person. Because of you and your belief in me I’ve have gained the confidence and the courage to heal (a journey in itself), to join the running room and complete 2 half marathons and to continue my education! I am officially registered at the U of A to become a Certified Interior Decorator! From the top, the middle and the bottom of my healing heart…. Thank you … Karen you truly are a gift unto this world. My little corner of the world is better for having you in it! You are an inspiration to me and many others. You are one of my heroes! And I love and appreciate you (M.B.)”

“I have participated in many study groups/retreats and I have always come away with a life changing lesson. They have helped me to finally understand that I have the ability to take control of my own life.  Things that have happened in my life don’t define me and I have the power to be happy!  I have learned to let my light shine.  I am forever grateful to Karen and her ability to ask the right questions that help figure out what and why I am reacting or feeling in a situation.  My confidence level has increase tremendously which has me doing things that I have always wanted to do but was too afraid to try.  I am a new, better version of myself.  The funny thing is I was always there but now I can see it for myself! Thanks Karen!” (C.M.)

“It’s really nice to be immersed together for the weekend. You can’t help but have a shift or a change because you are so involved”. One of the good parts about doing the retreat is that there are no distractions like kids, phone, or work … not having to cook or clean … you feel spoiled … the weekend was about me and no one else”

“It was fun and the food was fabulous!”

“It’s so hard to explain, it’s one of those things you have to experience to appreciate … you have to find a way to go to one”

My Tributes: Better Because of You ...

Better Because You chose Me …

I’d heard her name before. She and my bestie had met each other in class … there were both enrolled as mature students in the Social Work program offered through a nearby University.  The woman standing before me introduced herself as “Jody”.  She was direct … and … got right to the point. She was […]

Better Because You You Were There For Me … Thank You Marion!

With the jubilant joys of my 60th birthday celebrations starting to dim in the distance … imagine my surprise when I received a bright blue envelope via snail mail (aka: Canada Post.)  It was a greeting card from one of the people I had met and befriended decades ago while we were both living in […]

Better Because You Moseyed on Over …

Better Because You Moseyed on Over …

Its YOUR Birthday Hutch! Welcome to the sixties!  It’s tempting to poke fun at your age, but considering that you just caught up with me, I shall refrain. In fact, to the contrary, your buddy and I would like to dedicate this day to celebrating YOU … and … all the ways our lives have […]

Better Because of You … and … my 20 plus 2 years with FCSS!

I was scheduled to receive my 20 year long service recognition award at an agency function on Saturday, January 12 … but … because I won’t be at the gathering, I had arranged for my colleagues to accept it on my behalf.  They agreed to record the moment, so that I too, could listen to […]
