A Holistic Approach to Recovery from Psychosis
Welcome to Working to Recovery, an organisation with many years of experience in taking a different and more holistic approach to aiding recovery from "psychosis". Karen has dedicated much of her life to helping people with lived experience and their families across the world. While much progress has been made in the last 20 years, many people are still unaware of the link between past trauma and psychosis, as well as the links between spirituality and trauma. Our courses and workshops allow people to explore and possibly connect their current condition with what has happened to them in the past, thereby providing a platform for deeper understanding and emotional wellbeing.
To learn more about our holistic and compassionate approach to assisting in recovery from "psychosis", get in touch with Working to Recovery.
We provide many in-house workshops and courses that give people the exact help that they need when it comes to recovery from psychosis. Our workshops engage with hearing voices and other unusual experiences, as well as focusing on the process of recovery.

Karen and Ron have published a series of workbooks, “Victim to Victor” on Working With Voices, Working to Recovery, Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse and working with self- harm and Ron’s bestselling book, Recovery: An Alien Concept.

Karen originally a registered mental health nurse, has spent over 36 years soaking in and learning all aspects of recovery from "psychosis" and emotional health . Over the years, she has worked closely alongside the NHS, social services and other voluntary organisations to ensure that people and their families are provided with the precise help that they need to attain emotional wellbeing.
Led by Karen’s experience and compassion, Working to Recovery takes a person-centred approach to mental health that asks: “What has happened to you?” as opposed to “What is wrong with you?” Taking this holistic approach enables us to access the trauma of somebody living with psychosis and how unresolved traumatic events impact on one’s physical, spiritual and emotional wellbeing.
As part of her holistic approach to emotional wellbeing, Karen has also set up Midwife of the Soul, this provides people with a service that explores spirituality through education and mentoring. All trauma can lead to a disconnection from one’s authentic self , spiritual practice including reflecting and learning about our authentic selves, the process of reconnecting with the land and one’s ancestry can be hugely helpful for enabling people to grow and acquire emotional wellbeing and to understand the links between spirituality and trauma and their authentic self.
At Working to Recovery, our primary goal has always been to help people achieve greater autonomy in their lives. Our workshops and courses assist people their families and professionals in gaining an enhanced understanding of recovery from psychosis through exploring their own choices, taking ownership, the people they have in their lives and how they see themselves. Having a safe and friendly place in which to discuss this is vital when it comes to giving people more control over their daily lives and gaining emotional wellbeing.
