KC business health is based in York and was formed in 2004 by Karen Coomer to provide personal, professional and effective occupational health & wellness services to organisations whatever their size. She has a track record of working in both the public and private sector and so has first-hand experience of the challenges related to health and well-being at work.
Karen is a registered general nurse, has an occupational health nursing diploma and degree, an MSc in occupational health psychology and a PhD in Applied Psychology which investigated the relationship between work ability and individual differences in relation to job satisfaction, work engagement, stress, psychological distress and absence. Her qualifications and interest in psychology makes her eminently qualified to practice a holistic approach to her work which incorporates medical, social and psychological aspects to health issues seen in the workplace.
Karen regularly writes articles, presents at conferences, teaches on programmes for fellow occupational health practitioners and mentors students and qualified occupational health nurses.
