Your Life, Reimagined

Hi I'm Karen and welcome to Tapping Into Life, Life Coaching.  

I’m a qualified, registered social worker and Tapping Into Life is my private practice Life Coaching business.  

There are many benefits of seeing a coach, 

Motivation and inspiration

Gives you the get up and go to work towards your personal and professional goals through concrete action steps.


Looking at your life as a whole can help identify what tweaks can be made to assist in lifestyle balance and managing energy levels. 

Achieving long term results

By implementing healthy habits and routines that align with your goals. 


By setting financial goals and exploring obstacles that have held you back previously and your relationship to money.


Mental health and physical health is impacted because of strategies that assist in overall lifestyle balance and wellness.

You will have a supporter and accountability partner in me.  I will respectfully work alongside you to give you some valuable resources and tools to support you.  

​The number one question I get asked is, what does a Life Coach actually do?

I’ve worked with clients from across the board,

Clients, who are finding their own way after a divorce or loss.

Clients who want to be supported and motivated in healthy lifestyle choices, one of them being weight loss, 

Clients who want to be offered strategies to manage their depression or anxiety,

Clients who need some interview tips and / or public speaking support,

Clients who are wanting to create more space in their busy lives but don’t quite know how to get there, to name a few.

Life Coaching looks forward rather than looking back, its fun, revealing, but so rewarding. 

I learnt the power of the mind and building on my own inner resources after I lost my first husband to suicide six years ago.  I am a qualified and registered social worker of 20 years experience.  I facilitate wellness courses under my social work qualification through Hearts and Minds Trust.  I love coaching people and seeing the changes in their lives.  It’s really phenomenal.

Meet Karen de Wit

I am an empathetic practitioner who understands the power of mindset. 

I believe in the coaching experience, as I see everyday is a new beginning.  To help you get to know me, here are five things I've learnt.

1. Your thoughts influence how you think and feel.

2. Small steps matter.

3. This too shall pass.

4. You are the masterpiece of your own life.

5. If I don't take care of myself I cant achieve my goals and dreams or look after anyone else.  

Every client I work with has individual needs and I can tailor a program/action plan to you.

As a life coach, I’m passionate about helping others and guiding them into a new phase of their lives. I work hard on developing a personal, open and transparent relationship with my clients, and what they say about my services is incredibly important to me. Read the testimonials below to get an idea of the experiences that past clients have had with my services, and get in touch with me today.


I really didn't know what to expect during my first life coaching session with Karen.  I simply looked forward to talking about my life with a receptive listener, and hoped for maybe a few little insights...  However, my experience with Karen was so much more than this, and I was truly amazed by how powerful the process was for me.  Karen is a wonderful guide - she is so positive and open-hearted, with great reflective listening skills.  I felt fully received, and able to go at my own pace, with no hint of my usual resistance to anyone making suggestions about my life.  Karen embodies a beautiful balance between being sensitive and intuitive, yet realistic and practical.  Her tips, and the way she guided the session was "spot on" for me.  I was surprised and delighted several times by "aha!" moments, really significant insights.  And at the end of the hour, I felt so incredibly energised and positive about my life, with great clarity about exactly what needed tweaking for greater life fulfillment according to my own wishes.  I'm really looking forward to my next session with Karen, and highly recommend her as a life coach for anyone who thinks their life balance could be improved, even in the smallest of ways.


I met Karen today for a goal setting session.  We clicked immediately.  Her positivity and encouragement to do more of what I'm doing inspired me to follow my bliss.  I believe challenges equal growth.  She gave me the tools to overcome my obstacles of procrastination and fear.  I am thankful that our paths have crossed for a reason Karen.  A heartfelt thanks for sharing your wisdom on my journey.  Namastey,


I first met Karen from doing a Google search. We then made an appointment and met in person. Karen helped me set some goals but I had to do the work. She stayed in touch and checked up on me and how my goal setting was progressing. I am pleased to say that my life has changed dramatically in the last year. 
I have lost almost 25kg in weight and gone from a 46 pants to a 36 and from a double XL shirt to an large. My mental well being has shifted dramatically. I have found so much self worth and completely changed gear and am really successful in my career. Let Karen help you set your goals and then GO and achieve them


“After a session with Karen i feel like I’ve had a glass of my favourite wine or a relaxing massage. She has such a patient, grounded, yet totally engaged way of working. I feel positive, motivated and in control after seeing her. Karen helps guide you to choose your own directions, set goals and grow as a person. She has a natural way of helping you to iron out all the stresses and confusion in your life. I can’t recommend her highly enough”. Anonymous due to confidentiality.


When I first met Karen she had left a comment on my Instagram feed saying “I see you”. That phrase melted my heart and drew me to her. But those weren’t just lovely words. She walks her talk. After having had not just one but several wonderful conversations with her, I really do feel seen. Words cannot express what a gift that is. I feel so much better about where I am and where I am going that I’m excited about the next steps that have presented themselves. In part, through the clarity provided by the uplifting conversations.

I highly recommend her as a coach and you will see for yourself that she delivers. And not just in the talks themselves. The extent to which she shows up through feedback and follow ups demonstrate what a generous person she is. If any of this appeals to you, you’ll love her as your coach.”


I went to Karen when I was pretty broken. I had tried a counsellor but didn't find it helpful. I wanted someone to 'fix' me. I went with what seemed like massive problems and no idea how to make life better. I was in a dark place. Karen helped me to set myself small goals to start to strength myself and be well enough to tackle the big things. She is a very present, empathetic listener. She listened without judgement and was insightful in her responses. She gave me permission to grieve but also allowed me to see there was things I could do to balance my life out. Happy to say I have/ am achieving many of my larger goals because of the small steps that Karen helped me introduce. Thanks Karen x
