You have lots of knowledge and wisdom that the world needs to hear.
We all have dreams…we all have ideas that we want to bring into reality and see them flourish.
Sometimes life gets in the way. I get it. I’ve been there too.
We might be too busy making ends meet, or we might have sudden or ongoing health issues that mean that time we spend on our businesses and building our empires might be better spent resting and recovering.
Yes, rest and recover. By all means! That’s why I wrote 20 Self-Care Habits.
I believe that working on what we love means we don’t actually “work”.
We might need to change our lifestyle or our mindset, or both, or neither.
We might need to work on past issues that might have us “stuck” there and unable to see the way forward. That’s what The Beckoning Rooms is all about. Where fiction meets reality.
We might just need to sound off to someone that will help us get our ideas on paper and start seeing them develop.
This is why I’m here.
Have a look around this website. You’ll find many ways of meeting your learning, business, self-care and other needs through the various books and programmes I offer.
A disclaimer, this journey might mean lots of work – emotional, psychological, financial, and more but it will be worth it in the end.
Trust the process. I certainly do!
Let’s let the secret out and turn that knowledge into scalable, workable, relatable and communicable ideas that everyone can benefit from.
Let’s free you up to get you doing more of what you love!
Karin is a Guatemalan born entrepreneur with lots of strings to her bow.
Her career started in Guatemala, where she trained as a counsellor/psychotherapist.
In 2003, she became a German citizen, through family heritage, and in 2006 when she finished her studies, she decided to move to England, and she hasn’t looked back since! In 2018 she also became a British Citizen.
Amongst random jobs (2006-2008) , and a rewarding career in care work (2008-2019) getting to know her new culture and surroundings, she began her journey into counselling again, by retraining at Brighton University and achieving one of her initial dreams after moving to the United Kingdom: to work in the NHS.
She was offered an honorary placement in 2009 – unpaid financially but very gratifying in other ways! – and that was a great achievement so far!
Jump forward a few years later and the story of where Karin is today keeps unfolding.
In 2017, she decided to start her blog, which helped her grow her practice and offerings to where they are today, and adding more each day. The blog also led her to write her first book, 20 Self-Care Habits. This developed into finding new ground to walk on, in the form of interviews and later on workshops.
“I hope is that you’ll benefit from the things I’ve learned along the way, on my journey into self-employment and doing what I love, and through my books and programmes below.”
Writing has always been a passion of mine. And so has reading.
I remember growing up, getting lost in Stephen King stories – The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, Needful Things, Dreamcatcher, amongst others. Reading also took me into the world of the classics, like Gone with the Wind, and other stories.
I began writing when I was in high school (Guatemala). The emphasis there was writing in English. We’d write poetry books (you’ll find some poems in my blogs and books), essays and short stories – I do believe I scared one of my English teachers, after writing a short story based on a Stephen King book!
I hope you enjoy the books below, and others I’ll be writing in due course. I’ve enjoyed the journey before writing, during writing, and after publishing them. They’ve given life to my life experiences, and will hopefully help you in yours!
Do have a look at the Deepen your Learning section for more on what these books (and yours truly) can offer.
Self care is important. Not just the usual having a bath or having a nice cup of your favourite tea.
I mean the real stuff. The stuff that makes your life fulfilling and happy, or the stuff that makes you have the opposite experience.
In this book I give you 20 in-depth ways in which you can develop self-care habits that will improve your life and your relationships.
There are strengths in all of us that might have been quietened down or simply not put to any use due to life circumstances – being told you have to say yes all the time; or people denying your needs and/or feelings, which led to you not expressing either.
Reflecting on these 20 habits, and putting them into practice, in your own time, will allow you to learn more about yourself and how you relate with others.
Jenna, Jeremiah and Jacob all lead normal lives.They all wake up one morning in a strange bed, in a house they don’t know. They wonder why they’re here and how they got there. As they settle into the realisation that there is something that brought them here, a purpose, they all realise that there are rooms that seem to be calling them towards them. The beckoning rooms. They spend 4 nights in the place with the beckoning rooms. Alone. Somehow forced to face themselves and their deepest, darkest thoughts, feelings and lived experiences. They thought they’d left all that behind.
