Senior BodyTalk Instructor

Advanced BodyTalk Instructor

PaRama Practitioner Levels 1 & 2



After years of experiencing many healthcare challenges from the age of 8 years old onwards that were not able to be resolved using western medicine, I had more questions than answers.   This led me to look outside of the medical model to find answers to my healthcare challenges and ultimately working with an incredible system called BodyTalk of which I am now an Advanced Instructor and Practitioner. 


At the age of 25 after working for the same company for 7 years I found myself unfulfilled in a demanding position with many health challenges and decided it was time for a sabbatical along with some serious consideration with my career choice. I travelled to New Zealand for inspiration and whilst there enrolled in and completed the foundation course in Touch for Health Kinesiology as I had benefited from treatments in the UK.   It was during this time that I stumbled across The BodyTalk System™. My first experience of a BodyTalk Session was in April 2003 the results were so profound, the session dramatically changed my health and outlook, which is something that had not yet been achieved with any other modality. I instantly knew this is what I had been searching for. 

As a result of that one session I resigned from my employment in the UK and extended my stay in New Zealand to study the system. I became a certified practitioner in New Zealand in 2003 and have been working with The BodyTalk System™ full time ever since. I absolutely love working with BodyTalk. I feel privileged to have found this system so early in my life.  I have facilitated over 30,000 sessions and I continue to find every session with clients fascinating and I am still amazed by the results and feedback from clients.

A few Testimonials from Seminar Participants  

The following are testimonials from some participants from BodyTalk Fundamentals seminars that wished to share their experience with others thinking of taking this seminar.

This is an excellent seminar.  I took this seminar to learn a new method and something I could incorporate in my practice.   I really enjoyed the personality of our instructor.  Dr. Ilinka Karvela, Ophthalmologist.  Greece  

BodyTalk Fundamentals is fascinating material. I really felt I had learnt an incredible amount and done plenty of practical work at the end of the four days. I have attended many courses and I have been taught by many teachers and lecturers, so I can really compare and I must say that Karen Best is up there with the top lecturers/teachers. Her teaching style is exciting, lucid and very well structured which I find always helps when you are trying to learn a new thing. I also found Karen encouraging and always helpful if our group didn't understand anything. On top of everything, we also had some good laughs on the course, which was an added bonus! I can only recommend the course and in particular Karen Best's teaching. She really does go the extra mile for her students and is very supportive even after the course where, despite a heavy workload, she always finds time to answer e-mail questions and point us in the right direction when we are struggling with a concept. BodyTalk Fundamentals is a brilliant course and Karen Best is a brilliant teacher!"  Vera Peiffer, Author & International Lecturer.  Surrey, UK

I took this seminar for two reasons, personal development and to use the method in my practice.  This seminar was very well organised and the knowledge was delivered generously from the heart of the instructor.   There was very good cooperation between the instructor and the translator, the instructor had a very good knowledge level but also very well worked out from the mind level.  Thank you Karen and Eleni for such an excellent experience.   Maria Kolyvaki, Holistic Dentist.  Greece

Karen is an amazing teacher, could not believe how much I learnt over the 4 days.  Loved all the practice sessions.  Thank you so much xxx.  M. Courtney, Retreat & B&B Owner - Psychotherapist.   N.  Ireland. 

I took this seminar because I was interested to know more about this system.  I wanted to apply it to my patients and to talk about it at the university.  Everything about the seminar was excellent.  The seminar was very well organised and presented, I would have liked to have had another day added to the seminar and I hope to have another opportunity to learn more about this system.   I feel very lucky to have experienced Karen’s teaching style, she is a very interesting person and I feel there is a need to have teachers like Karen.   Thank you for your understanding, you helped me realise so much about so many things relating to my health and health in general.   Thank you for your support.

Wallace - Environmental Health Officer.  London

As a Kinesiologist and Nutritionist, Body Talk was recommended to me by a colleague as a therapy that was worth a look.  Having read the BodyTalk book I couldn't wait to do the training.  The four days of BodyTalk Fundamentals were very intensive, with the manuals providing a mountain of information, but Karen's style of teaching made it easy to absorb and took the stress out of learning this amazing system of healing.  I'm now looking forward to the next level.  Jackie Reader, Sevenoaks
