My name is Karina Todd and I am the founder of Fempower.
I am a certified Women’s Empowerment Coach.
I am also a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a colleague, an accountant and many other things to many other people.
It is though, without doubt, the fact that I am a woman passionate about supporting other women that inspires my work.

My life to date (in a nutshell)

I was born and bred in Belfast, headed off to University in Wales to study Banking and Finance at the age of 19, lived it up in London for 2 years before returning home to Northern Ireland to train as a Chartered Accountant.

Shortly after qualifying, I met and married the wonderful man (who is still my husband!) and gave birth to 4 fantastically fabulous children in quick succession! We moved out of the Big Smoke to the countryside thirteen years ago – and for a couple used to living in the big city for so long, we absolutely love our rural retreat!


My journey so far…

A few years ago it was a very different story when, as a busy, full-time working, stressed out, overweight and overwhelmed mother, I had forgotten to prioritise my own needs in the middle of everything, neglecting my own health and emotional and mental wellbeing along the way. In short, I was exhausted and frustrated.

Lessons Learned

Then I started on a journey of personal development, self-discovery and learning – learning to take time to prioritise, respect and love myself in the middle of the crazy pace of life. Like most women, I had spent much of my adult life until this point trying to be all things to all people while, along the way, losing sight of who I actually was.

The big thing that I’ve learned from all of this is that fantastic results can be gained in all areas of our lives by making small changes – it’s not about deciding to radically change the way we live, we all know that the motivation for that won’t last too long! It is about making small, sustainable, consistent changes to how we live, think and feel that yields the greatest rewards. It’s about going with the flow and not against it.

My Mission…

I am now on a mission to help women of all ages and stages to unleash the power within them to live a life they love!

While I am not going to pretend that life will always be perfect (sure wouldn’t that be boring!), I have spent the last few years reading, researching and training to support women in all areas of their personal development journey.

Through my experiences as a professional working mother and my training as a Women’s Empowerment Coach, I can help you through every step of your journey with inspirational and insightful courses, programmes and events to re-ignite that fire in your belly.

But that’s not all, by joining our community of other fabulous like-minded women, you will feel like you have walked into a big hug! The women in our Chrysalis Club are here to support, inspire and raise each other up to new levels.

So, if you want to be in a place where you can just be yourself and others will just ‘get you’– then you’ve arrived!

Your time is now…
