Karen has been teaching mindfulness since 2008. She has been taught and supervised by Michael Chaskalson, author of The Mindful Workplace, and trained to level 3 teaching in Mindfulness- based Cognitive Therapy with Dr Patrizia Collard. She has attended mindfulness retreats led by the Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and public talks by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Karen is a wife and mother and a Pharmacist with a PhD in molecular pharmacology and has been a special lecturer in Clinical Pharmacology at the University of Nottingham Medical School. She is co-author of the text book Disease Management by Randall and Neil and has written articles relating to her Pharmacy practice research interest in the adverse effects of drugs for the journal Prescriber. Work as a Community Pharmacist led to an interest in the effect of nutrition and lifestyle on health and disease and subsequently the physical and mental effects of emotional problems and stress. This has led to intensive study over the last decade, including the work of many people researching mental health and the effect of meditation on the brain, such as Daniel Goleman, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Richard Davidson, Zindel Segal, Mark Williams, John Teasdale together with Buddhist Philosophy from which mindfulness meditation originates.
