By Karin Christensen, Practice Manager, Koru Corner Natural Therapies Centre

My vision for Koru Corner was borne out of a passionate urge to attract gifted and skilled practitioners to a warm and welcoming practice serving our local community. I know from my own experience of working in the holistic health and natural therapies field how dissociating and disheartening it can be to work on your own, trying to make ends meet.

Karin's Background

I am Danish by birth but lived in the UK since my late teens. I worked in retail management, marketing and sales over a 20 year period and trained in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Reiki healing during a period of active self development in 2006-8. I immigrated with my family to New Zealand in 2009 and settled in New Plymouth the following year.

I have run a part time, self employed practice as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Healing Practitioner in New Plymouth since 2010. Additionally, I work as Personal Assistant to Dr Dan Goodkind, now also based at Koru Corner, which supports my interest in mental health and human behaviour.
