Our main facilitator Karen McElroy is inspired by a passion to gently walk the future generations of girls through the various stages of growth to womanhood. Her unique and inspiring programmes for girls aim to support the health, wellbeing and empowerment of girls and young women.
Karen is a dedicated and well regarded natural health practitioner who has many years of experience in women and children’s health. She brings together a wealth of clinical and life experience with a broad ranging skill set that includes teaching, training, counselling and mentoring. As a mother, Karen also understands the challenges of parenting and aims to support other mothers on their journey, helping to co-create a strong and supportive community of women.
Karen is joined by her daughter, Holly, along with other girls and young women in the facilitation of the Gaia Girl’s programmes. The girls provide a supportive role in guiding and developing activities that are appropriate and meaningful for the participants.
