“My Life is finally in order, and no longer in mental disorder” ~ Karen Carrington
“I boldly told my story, I had to heal, I had to let go of my past and walk in confidence, I released my weakness and grabbed hold of my strength. DESTROY WHAT DESTROYS YOU! Every wound and scar turns into a story. Sharing my story on how overcoming General Anxiety Disorder, overcoming a sudden divorce and financial ruin healed me and now helps others.
“In Nov 2015 Karen Carrington came to the Heron Park Community to speak to our youth and it was the most attentive we have ever seen our youth. They were all moved and inspired by her story/journey with mental health. A lot of youth felt that mental health is an issue in the Heron Park community but no one talks about it so to have someone who is living with a condition share their experience first hand made youth feel comfortable to share challenges with mental health in their personal life with youth staff in the youth space. Karen’s speech provide us with a platform to be discuss mental health openly with our youth and provide them with the necessary support need to move forward. Thank you so much Karen!!!!”

Karen Carrington facilitated a Women’s Self- Care Workshop at my Annual Sisters in Christ Retreat held in Los Angeles, California. This session was extremely beneficial for the women as Karen’s workshop demonstrated that Self-care is one of the most overlooked fundamentals to well-being, including mental and emotional health however she showed the attendees that it can be easily incorporated one day at time into our busy lifestyles. Karen reminded the women that it’s ok to put themselves first guilt -free and that having God in the centre of their life is key to true self- care and unconditional love. The women left the workshop feeling empowered as she encouraged each woman to step out of their comfort zone and guided them to boldly tap into their emotions with authenticity and vulnerability while realizing their self-worth. I highly recommend Ms. Carrington’s workshop to anyone who is in need of rejuvenation, restoration and wants to enhance their self- love. I enjoyed the workshop, it was a success and would definitely have Karen Carrington back again
