Karen Haworth has a degree in adult education and professional development, and has spent 30 years in health and social care specialising in working with communities who may not otherwise access services.
Karen uses her lived experience of brain injury with a blend of therapeutic techniques to facilitate peer-to-peer support that enables the people she works with - from people with brain injuries to family carers - and individuals with long covid to develop self-management techniques and confidence to switch their mental and physical health and wellbeing into a positive direction.
“Still unsure? Just call her for a chat. What have you got to lose but your issues?” - Clare Dodd, family carer and one-to-one session client.

I provide corporate training on life skills such as stress management, efficiency, time and energy management as well as life/business success planning.
My mission is to enable as many people as possible to live a life they love.
I founded Authentically Speaking, a training and coaching business in 2016 and I am a certified leadership coach and trainer.
“It all starts with happiness for me. When we take care of our mental health and well-being, we are able to be the very best version of ourselves in our private lives and our business and career. Happiness has a big impact on productivity, effectiveness and profit!”
I have an open, honest and genuine approach which builds trust with people. My style is a mixture of coaching and training which helps people to make positive and lasting change to their life and business to create happiness.
I'm passionate about helping people achieve their goals.
I was an Area System's Operator and Troop Leader in the British Army for 4 years. I had a severe blunt force injury to the head on 20 April 2002. This left me in a coma for 6 weeks and I was told I wouldn't walk again.
However, I made such an outstanding recovery that I was invited to the Queens Garden Party. I met Bear Grylls and Prince Harry, who inspired me to show others that, with the right support and attitude, you can achieve anything.
Not only am I walking again, I ran a support group, ‘The Big-S’ for 6 years and I'm using my own journey of recovery to help and inspire others.
I initially trained in conventional medicine after having health problems myself. However, I then discovered the world of alternative healing. And I'm so passionate about it now after I've seen what it can do!
It led me to researching mind and body healing techniques. Within this is also the study and the power of the unconscious mind.
I'm currently the medical director at the Institute for the Study of Peak States, and proud to be the co-founder of Brain Health Breakthrough with Karen.
We're a small team and although we can get most of the work done in-house, we sometimes seek the help of freelance remote workers.
The virtual assistants we work with are highly qualified and hard working. Their part-time help with website copy, proofreading and formatting documents is integral to the running of Brain Health Breakthrough CIC and they are most certainly a really valued part of the team.
If you are looking for a Virtual Assistant and would like a recommendation, or would like to work with BHB, then please do get in touch with Karen.
