About Freedom At Last

Today, women need to be supported with their skills to manage the broader roles they now face bringing more empowered versions of themselves – to life.

Hi, I’m Karen, an Executive Female Consultant.
My practice has helped women reach their goals and grow confidently with smiling souls. I empower women to create their own destiny.

About Karen

I am passionate about helping high powered, ambitious women such as yourself come back into relationship with lost aspects of your feminine or masculine power and integrating all these aspects within yourself. Liberating you through my process.

Empowering Sessions

I combine both the pragmatism and structure of a transformative process with a compassionate, supportive and understanding ear of reflection and support. I journey with you through the unexplored and fascinating corridors of your mind, heart and soul.

“An incredible journey began on our first session. Karen is patient and intuitive, she listens deeply and her ability to draw you out and light up what lies beneath the surface was always spot on. Being retired, lost, worried, and in the middle of one of the toughest times humankind has ever had to face, I cannot imagine that I made for an easy “client” but it was like chatting to my best friend. Now 4 sessions later and many, many shifts later, I have a much clearer vision of myself and nuggets of practical advise on how to continue towards a fuller happier life. I am forever grateful. If you are stuck and looking to move forward in your life or even just the tools to survive our current global situation,from my heart I fully recommend Karen.”

– Ms L. Mc Callum, Sunninghill


“Karen is a wonderful life coach. When I started with her, I had very low self confidence and did not believe in myself at all. Karen coached me on how to see life in a totally new way. She has brought out things in me as a person that I never knew I was capable of doing. She is a very good coach and after each session you finish off with a good warm positive feeling in your heart.”

– Mrs L. Breedvelt, Kempton Park


“I was somewhat skeptical and dubious of the role that life coaching could play in my existence as I have learned to pick myself up and get on with life. Not always with the best results or journeys. So when Karen approached me to offer life coaching I accepted it more as a challenge or something to keep me busy during the Corona virus Lockdown, little did I know the profound effect it would have on me. I received an email before the first session with a couple of forms that I had to complete and that’s when I knew it was serious and beneficial depending on my attitude and commitment. So I decided to go into it with a positive mindset and willingness to change.”

– Mr A.Bishop, Edenvale


“I’m writing this testimonial for Karen Bowman, because she has been one of the most important “forces” in the transformation of my life!  Before Karen, I always thought life was pretty good.  But having Karen as my lifecoach has been absolutely life changing. I’ve honestly improved so much in more ways than one and so has my life!  Karen is so full of energy, love, life and commitment.  I love the fact that she holds me accountable. She also challenges me to step out of my comfort zone, because that is the only place that you will truly grow! I can – without reservation – recommend Karen to you!  She is a great coach, scratch that out, THE BEST COACH!”

– Ms J. Serfontein, Pretoria


“When I first began my journey with Karen, I felt so lost and disconnected from myself and my purpose. I was lacking motivation in areas of my life that I felt needed to change.

Over the course of my life- coaching sessions, Karen helped me to shape and form my goals and implement practical exercises to assist me in achieving these goals. Her kind and gentle heart really made me feel safe to express myself whilst also holding me accountable to my goals. The exercises and assignments she had me complete truly helped me to fall in love with myself again, and to learn more about who I am. I am so grateful to Karen for not only being an incredible life coach, but a loving and caring friend too throughout this journey of self-discovery.”

– Megan Kode, Cape Town


“I would like to thank you for bringing positiveness and clarity to me after a very difficult year. At the beginning of the coaching I was feeling really hopeless, confused and depressed. Losing my career due to Covid has not been easy, and it’s been totally demoralising. But today I am clear on what I want to achieve and how I’m going to achieve it, with thanks to Karen.

I would encourage my friends to work with Karen. She is a compassionate, kind,understanding and a supportive person who will teach you how to recognise your inner strength, how to cope with negative situations and how to empower yourself emotionally. It’s been a blessing meeting and working with Karen. “

– Helen Malisan, Bedfordview


“Truly, I cannot sing Karen’s praises enough. Before her coaching, I felt lost and uninspired. In my mind there was no way 8 short weeks could make a difference. But (as cliché as it sounds) I came out the other side a completely different person. Every goal I set with her, I achieved (and then some). She tailored each session to my needs and her calm, motivating presence made me want to show up better each week. Although my main focus was in my career, I felt many other aspects of my life improve because of her guidance. With Karen you get so much more than just a coach, you get a friend who wants you to succeed.”

– Sam Hill, Northriding


“When I entered the life coaching program with Karen I was unsure of myself, insecure, anxious, not knowing who I am and what I really wanted from my life. I was struggling to manage my anxiety and overwhelmed because of it.

Today, after 8 weeks of coaching my life overall has become so much more positive, I’m on my way to achieving my goals and have clarity, but most importantly I’m not that anxious person I once knew with a lot more confidence.

This journey has motivated and inspired me every day and with Karen’s guidance and tools I have learnt who I am and what I want out of life with a positive confident outlook. It has enabled me to transform my life and I will be forever grateful. Freedom at last!”

– Yolandi Windt


“When I received the opportunity to join Karen on this journey, I did not know what to expect… This coaching journey made my life happier and improved my personality. It was really wonderful. It has made my life better to the degree of changing my perception about how to live happily and successfully. I am more confident in doing certain things after coaching which I couldn’t do before, such as: how to use my positive energy to overcome any stress through meditation and some relaxation techniques. Moreover, I learned how to speak publicly with high confidence, and how to change my thinking positively and successfully. Thank you Karen for everything you have done for me. You were always smiling and was always positive.”

– Dominique Jacobs


“I am a successful and confident person but perched on the edge of a new career era I was concerned that I may be striding resolutely in a pre-determined direction that would not serve me in the long run. Trying to sort this out on my own was like trying to find a hairpin in my handbag. I fumbled and searched and turned the bag upside down and … nothing. Working through the Freedom at Last process with Karen I found that hair clip and also discovered other valuable treasures I did not know I possessed.

Karen made me search, think and reflect and test my theories, she challenged me to dig deep and often until I found a path that would serve me and others. I now find myself on a constant journey of self-discovery and personal success. Thank you, Karen, for your patience, professionalism, your innate understanding, your sense of humour, and your constant guidance. I am really looking forward to the Warrior of Light Masterplan.
