Meet The Team
The HeadStrong Experts Here to Help You
When I started HeadStrong in 2007, I wanted to help people. I knew what it felt like to drift aimlessly in life and allow all my fears to be in charge of what I did. I wanted to stop people being like that. I especially wanted to stop young people, teenagers and children feeling like that because I recognised that’s where my life went a little ‘off course’. Now, Headstrong has helped thousands of people change and that really does blow my mind a little bit!
Coaching and helping people release themselves from their story is a huge passion and now I am fortunate enough to speak to large audiences in schools, conferences and events helping people realise that it simply doesn’t have to be the way it is. Change is a good thing.
Away from all this I love going to the football (i’ll leave my team a secret until we meet), i love spending time with my family and I love going to the pictures. For the sake of my wife can I point out those three things are not in any specific order.
I know I speak for the whole team when I say that we look forward to helping you in any way we can and the only way you can do that is if you get in touch. So don’t be shy, send us an email and let us help; Hope is Here.
Hi, I’m Karen and I’m the new kid on the block at Headstrong. Bit of background on me… I’m a country lass where life is busy looking after my lab, Brooke, two horses Jazz and Maggie, Pudsey the cat and chickens. Yes I have a menagerie!! But wouldn’t have it any other way. As well as my love of animals, my other passion is helping people to be the best they can be. The satisfaction you get when you assist someone in realising their full potential is second none.
When you call or email us it will probably be me that you speak to first. I am a Master Practitioner of NLP and a part-time coach as well as doing what i do for HeadStrong so I will answer all your questions and chat through all your options before you get your self all booked up.
Hi my name is Emma and I am a Coaching Specialist here at HeadStrong. I have been training and working with HeadStrong for nearly 6 years now. I have a background in the performing arts; I worked predominantly as a dancer for 8 years and have been lucky enough to perform all over the world and dance for some names you might recognise such as 1Direction, Enqrique Iglesias, Little Mix and loads of others. Although I still dance and teach, I am now one of HeadStrong’s Specialist Coaches. I love being a coach because helping someone make transformational changes to their life is always a special moment. I feel very grateful to be part of people’s journeys, not only because it is amazing to see the results and what they then accomplish but to know I have contributed to the world in some sort of way. If someone’s life is that bit easier or a whole heap better because of the work we have done, then I couldn’t ask for more from what I do.
I have clients of all shapes, sizes and ages and I have a particular passion for helping young women create positive and affirming beliefs about themselves, their image and their abilities.
Facilitator, HeadStrong Schools
I’ve been a drama teacher in Theatre Schools for the last ten years which means working with youngsters has always been a great passion for me. In the little spare time I have I direct musical theatre and work with many companies including The Clydebank Musical Society. I am a keen performer myself, have performed regularly as part of the Pantheon Theatre Company (my Kenickie was a show stealer in Grease) and you may have seen me sing at a wedding or function with my band The Singer Swingers which features my two best friends as my band mates. I’ve not always been as outgoing and confident as I am now and I want to use my experience of discovering my own confidence and self belief and bring this out in pupils and youngsters so that they can go on to work in jobs that they really love. I want to make a difference to young people all over Scotland and I look forward to meeting you and your young people.
Firewalking Expert & Instructor
About 5 years ago, in a mad moment, I said I’d help Brian out at one of his Firewalk events. It was only meant to be one…I’ve not missed one since!! In those three years my passion for seeing people do crazy, mental things like walk on hot coals in their bare feet has grown and, as someone who is fascinated by the mind, body and all that it is capable of, I have now taken my expertise to the next level.
In 2017, I grabbed the chance to become more than the guy that just watches the fire and now i get to pass on all I have learned through years of study and experience. As a fully qualified and insured Firewalk Instructor you may be lucky enough to see my pretty face on your firewall event, helping you face your fears and prove to yourself how amazing you really are. Walk of Champions is my thing. You are more than you know. I look forward to helping you talk your 6 steps to Awesome
