“Karen was such a supportive facilitator of Circle of Security with my husband and I. With Karen we were able to delve really deep into the content. We felt safe to be transparent with her,  she "held" us as we explored what things from our own past could be preventing us from being truly there for our child. Karen made the content and concepts so easy to understand . I'd highly recommend Karen as a facilitator - she is a clear, kind and nurturing person to have teach such invaluable content!".

In June 2023, during Infant Mental Health Awareness Week, I had the honor of co-presenting information for the Australian Association of Infant Mental Health (AAIMH) WA and the North Metropolitan Health Service. The focus of the presentation was Western Australia's pilot Attachment & Biobehavioural Catch-up (ABC) Program, which aligned perfectly with this year's theme of 'Bonding Before Birth.'
