I love that you're on my website and are now taking serious steps to create life on your sensitive terms. On this page you will find all the information you need to get to know me and how I've reached this point in my life.
But I must admit: My brain kind of freezes when someone asks me to say in a few sentences who I am and what I do. You'd see my eyes glaze over and all I can say is "I'm sorry..."Who? Me?!" And then nothing....at least on the outside...on the inside this is what's happening:
The philosopher in me starts a rant about 'nobody ever knowing who they really are', the life coach in me doesn't know if this question is effective and wants more specific details, the spiritual healer part of me starts talking about my 'soul and what about all of those previous lives, do they count?', the psychologist in me really thinks my ego and all my qualifications are 'what should come first' (because the ego always thinks it comes first and at this point it gets into a fight with my spiritual me), the parenting coach in me is kind of disappointed with all this fighting and is considering how to break these two apart in a positive way, the yogi in me is looking around for her mat where she can go sit in a dignified way to ponder this question and the mother in me just kinds of give an exhausted yawn (especially after that fight that just happened) and asks if she 'can be excused for a nap'.
So, after I get through all that and manage to silence them all, I say...:
"Well, I'm 'just Karin'. And I'm the best Karin I can be".
By now you've probably concluded that I have some kind of multiple personality disorder. Believe me, there were times I thought that too...but no, I'm a highly sensitive mother of 3 children, a psychologist, a life coach, a parenting coach and an energy worker. And I've been on the path of living life on my terms for a while now. Throughout my professional life I've specialized in high sensitivity, giftedness, parenting, energy management and healing.
As you can see. I embrace all of my passions into serving my tribe! In working with highly sensitive parents I specialize in energy management, stress reduction and life purpose coaching. Because of my background, all my coaching is about you: the parent, the sensitive person, the person.
I have been deeply blessed with helping over 700 families over the past 10 years. I've become an expert in psychological testing of children in which I not only use scientifically based testing tools but also all my experience and intuition. Many children have been saved from crippling misdiagnoses because I dare to use my 'sixth sense'. But, my ability to truly connect with children and their parents is what truly makes me very good at what I do.
Highly Sensitive Parents was created when I sat down and combined all my passions, expertises and experiences. I realized that my true calling was to support highly sensitive parents around the world. I want to inspire you into creating time, emotional space and clarity in who you are, so that you can start parenting with purpose and flow and create the life of your dreams.
But, you're probably curious about how I came to be and how my life has been until now, and to ease your curiosity I've written "My life story" (go ahead and get some tea first, I got a bit carried away....)
I've also put together a My Philosophy page where you will find why I work with "PARENTS" and not just "MOMS".
On my Youtube channel you will find video's that I've created for our Highly Sensitive Parents Community
