Over the years, Karen has provided Mentoring for professionals who want to understand the recovery from "psychosis" process more deeply or are change managing services to be more trauma informed and focussed on recovery and wellness.
Moreover, Working to Recovery works with families and people with lived experience to supply a personalised form of mentoring. Communicating closely with the whole family and compassionately engaging with the nature and causes of one’s "psychosis", namely the links between trauma, spirituality and "psychosis," is a vital part of what karen does.
Over the past few years, it has become clear that many people diagnosed with “psychosis” are essentially tackling dissociation and the selves they become, which is where the real work of healing begins. Understanding this notion ahead of working on a journey to recovery enables the person to map out their “selves”, form relationships with them, and learn what is needed to experience true recovery from "psychosis" and emotional wellbeing.
