About me

I’m Karen Boyd, certified Career and Mental Fitness coach, and I empower my clients to get in the driving seat of their careers so they can realise their potential and re-discover their career mojo.

I help you overcome your challenges and mindset blocks so you can thrive at work, whether this means making a small tweak or a significant change.

After a successful corporate marketing career working on much loved brands such as Dulux and Nescafé, I trained as a coach to follow my passion and help others do the same.

My coaching approach draws on proven self-development and coaching tools, my 20-year corporate experience and career transition, Mental Fitness methodology and Positive Psychology, the science of happiness!

Through my associate work as a career coach for LHH, the market leader in the corporate outplacement space, I am also well versed in all key aspects of the job search from redundancy through to securing a new role (CV, LinkedIn and interview guidance to planning the first 90 days in role).

I offer 1:1 career coaching and 1:1 or group/team coaching to build Mental Fitness.

Clients choose from one-off sessions to address a specific situation or challenge or longer, bespoke coaching programmes with in between session support and resources.

My coaching style has been described as inquisitive, perceptive, supportive (whilst challenging where necessary), focused, and resourceful. 

"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Karen. Her supportive, nurturing and honest approach has helped me to effectively reassess my values and ambitions - both personal and professional. The sessions were a great start to the week and gave me invaluable focus and insight. Thank you, Karen, for supporting my rebuild and for helping me to remind myself of all that I have achieved and am capable of!" Liz, Sales Director

Outside of work, I live at the seaside in Hove, UK, with my husband and two children and love great food, travel and cold-water sea swims.

Life's too short to be unhappy at work. Our work life touches on our values, how we see ourselves, our worries, relationships, expectations, and dreams. It also impacts other areas of our life. Let's make work happiness the norm, not the exception!

At the heart of my services is the belief that everyone has potential. By being our best authentic selves, we perform better in the workplace and with that comes happiness and fulfilment. My purpose is to help clients unlock their potential and realise their ambitions.

I offer one off coaching sessions, specific career coaching programmes and my signature programme called ‘Be Your Best Version’.

My area of expertise and experience stems from my career in Learning and Development, where I have worked for over 10 years . I am employed as Global Learning Lead for a technology company, where I lead and implement the Learning strategy for the organisation. My passion is helping people to learn, grow and develop their skills, knowledge, and expertise. I am a lifelong advocate for mentoring, having championed mentoring schemes within the workplace. My career has also included extensive work around helping people with career development and progression.  

My coaching style is influenced by the Solutions Focus coaching model, OSKAR, helping my clients to clarify their goal or outcome, exploring options and resources available to them, building on their own strengths and resources, and defining clear next steps and actions to take forward between and after the coaching sessions.

Using a variety of creative, self -awareness, wellness techniques and exercises and appropriate challenge to help my clients really explore both how they think and feel and then translate it into powerful next steps to move forward.  For leaders, this extends to gaining awareness and exploring the impact around them both within the organisation and the wider world. 

Having worked in the corporate world for over 20 years, and a number of those within the HR and L&D functions, I understand the complex nature and culture of organisations, and the personal challenges and expectations we put on ourselves.
