Karen Hayward – MHFA Instructor
Mental Health First Aid Instructor (MHFA England), Therapist, Coach and Columnist
Karen is a passionate trainer of Mental Health First Aid courses, both online and face-to-face. She brings many of her own, lived experiences to the training and is a beacon of hope for good recovery. Having worked in both the public and private sectors, SMEs and large, multi-national corporations, she is able to adapt the training to suit specific environments.
She works with businesses to develop and deliver positive mental health solutions across their workforce and regularly contributes articles on mental health to local publications.
She runs two separate therapy clinics, specialising in trauma, anxiety and depression and when coaching, uses hypnotherapy to remove the barriers that are holding clients back from fulfilling their aspirations.
She studies extensively, practices yoga (badly) and enjoys walking with her Labradors as much as she can.
