Rave reviews from publications worldwide

I was invited to speak as a global expert on an international stage, and I knew there was something holding me back from how I wanted to project myself and therefore be seen, and I needed input from a professional to unlock this and give me some tough love. Working with Tricia gave me the skills and resources to tap into my blockages and release myself from them. She provided a safe and nurturing environment to overcome them. Now I can call on the tools I’ve been shown to deal with my issues and “stuff" which will invariably come up. And I have the confidence that I know how to handle myself in these situations. Working with Tricia was liberating, inspiring and energising. Best of all, I nailed my talk and had people queuing up to listen to me, and I received rave reviews in publications around the world.

Bec Brideson Director, Venus Comms


I am eternally grateful for the timing of my astrology session with Tricia. Life has been an absolute whirlwind of events since that life-changing session. I doubt I would be making decisions so rooted in conscious self-care without it. I can't imagine anyone approaching me with more sensitivity and gentle strength as we looked at some major life events. The clarity and insight offers have been hugely beneficial. The session offered structure in the midst of chaos, a grounding point. Exactly what I needed to move forward with intention and to create the life I truly want. Sometimes, with the right conditions, behavioural changes can happen in an instant. That's how I feel about my experience with Tricia.

Working with Tricia launched my speaking career

When I decided to work with Tricia, I knew what I wanted to say but just had no idea how to structure my speech or where to begin. Tricia helped me put together all the pieces of the puzzle into one flowing talk. I learnt how to speak from a place of 'realness'. What shifted for me most was knowing I can now present in front of an audience without notes, and just go for it and feel confident that what I'm saying will impact people positively. After working with Tricia, nothing is holding me back. There are no limits. Speaking publicly about Body Image Movement has taken on a new dimension.

The fog lifted and I could see clearly

After hearing Tricia's interpretation of my astrology chart I had such clarity and confirmation about my life, why things were the way they were and what was unfolding for the year ahead. I felt like the fog had lifted and I could see clearly what needed to be done and inspired to take action knowing that the time was ripe. Tricia has a sharp intuition and a gorgeous, compassionate, clear and concise way of delivering her readings. She is obviously highly trained with an innate, intimate and deep understanding of astrology. I highly recommend her.

I rocked the stage!

I just wanted to write you a quick email to express my gratitude. I met you at a networking function and saw you speak and was really impressed with your speaking skills. You engaged the audience in such a natural and powerful way. Having experienced public speaking myself in the past and having considered myself 'ok' at it but not 'fabulous', along with my past talks being rather content based with powerpoint to guide me, I wanted to really stretch myself and become a 'speaker'. Very different really! I was offered a really exciting opportunity to be a keynote speaker at an industry function, amongst other nationwide and worldwide speakers, and naturally was 'crapping' myself, to put it mildy. I needed to accelerate my learning, and shift from powerpoint to 'story-telling' with minimal notes. Yikes!
Phoning you and booking in for your coaching was the best thing I did! You gave me the key hints I needed to structure my talk and my mind before the event. I loved being on stage, and the feedback was encouraging! I felt like for my stint, I rocked the stage!
I then booked you to train me in the art of workshops and the content was fabulous. I have recently booked my first workshop with an external business that are not my office team!! (The beginning of my new coaching business). And on that note, I did a workshop with my own office team after you trained me and the feedback was: "You have moved from a boss, to a motivating facilitator". That means a lot as if my team are motivated properly, that means I am steering a growing and thriving business.
Training with you was like training with a friend, a friend who was a true expert in their field. You are encouraging, thoughtful, intuitive, and motivating, along with being highly skilled in your field.
I really appreciate your assistance, and look forward to sharing some of my future successes with you.

I'm empowered to show up and just be me

I saw Tricia speak late last year and her presence and story intrigued me. Tricia has a heart connection with women when she speaks so she seemed the ideal coach to work with. The main outcome of our initial call was her allowing me to be vulnerable and confirm that the story I didn’t want to tell was to become my signature talk. I then worked with Tricia for a whole day, the outcome being my signature talk written and my confidence to believe that I could tell this story confidently. Her professionalism, integrity and experience shone through all day. Tricia has empowered me to show up and just be me. Thanks Tricia!

Annie Harvey Tutor, Coach & Speaker

I feel empowered and affirmed

Tricia's astrology reading resonated deeply with me. She has an extraordinary ability to capture the essence of the reading with clarity and sensitivity. Tricia is highly skilled in her craft and was able to translate the astrology into words that I understood and indeed felt. Her predictions have been incredibly accurate and she also reminded me to trust myself and listen to my intuition. I felt empowered and affirmed by the experience and I thank Tricia for sharing her gift with me.

Vanessa Alexander Autism Consultant

An amazing speech in just one hour!

After spending just one hour working with Tricia I was able to solidify and finalise a speech that I had been trying to put together for a year! She was able to help me sort out and identify the important stuff that should be included and then blend it together perfectly. I now feel confident that when I stand before an audience I will not only be able to provide information but also reveal my story and the motivators behind my business. I'd felt uncomfortable about speaking and trying to sell, and was worried I'd come across as too pushy or over the top. Now I feel comfortable to be myself and talk about what I offer in a way that will get results. It's exciting!

Marisa Punshon Director, Miss Moneypenny Presents

Insightful and inspiring

Tricia's reading was insightful and inspiring. It gave me a great deal to think about and look towards. Intuitive, articulate, exceptionally trained and researched, Tricia is a gifted astrologer. Time with her is to be treasured.

Nuala Hafner TV personality

The workshop was life-changing!

I really didn't like speaking in public. It was really difficult for me. But something just shifted for me when I did the workshop with Tricia. It's quite magical, the whole process. I do a lot of talking for my company and this has made it so much easier. It's improved the way I present myself in meetings. I have more clarity and I get my point across. I still get nervous beforehand but I don't try to suppress it and feel like I'm going to pass out (like I used to). I know how to use that energy now, I'm actually able to do it and know I'm not going to die! I also tell my story and do my talks in a completely different way. The last one I did was in front of 60 strangers and I'd never been able to do that before. From that presentation I got a board position. That wouldn't have been possible for me before. Working with Tricia was life-changing.

Chantale Millard Chief Financial Officer

The feedback has been extraordinarily positive

Tricia has run a number of training programs for our organisation. There was so much demand for the first one that we had to schedule another one. Tricia has a high level of professionalism. Her capacity to listen and understand the quirks of your organisation’s environment, then tailor her work to meet the needs of the organisation, and then deeper still for the group, is fantastic. She comes with a deep knowledge and experience, a preparedness to research further (she doesn’t ‘rest on her laurels’) and a wonderful fresh energy and sense of humour. The feedback from Tricia’s sessions has been extraordinarily positive.”

Justene Knight Senior Consultant Organisational Development, People Development & Performance, UniSA

I have the confidence to speak and behave like a powerful leader

Since your workshop, I have picked myself up after an unsuccessful internal job application, applied for a new job which was outside my comfort zone and I was successful in winning the position, and put myself forward to be a Team Mentor in a national project. I won that position too, and as a result have just attended a conference including dignitaries from Australia, Ireland and Canada. I felt confident in expressing my views and being an active participant in the proceedings. I've also been more confident in meetings and opportunities for networking. These things have been a direct result of your workshops, giving me the confidence to speak and behave like a powerful leader. Thank you so much! I feel much more empowered both at work and in my personal life.

Lara S Senior Business Analyst

The workshop was transformational

Before I worked with Tricia I didn't mind talking in front of people but I was very nervous about it and didn't look forward to it at all. I know now that I have a message that I can share and that people want to listen to, and I certainly won't be approaching presenting with fear. Working with Tricia is an absolute delight. The workshop was so much more than I was expecting, and Tricia has a radiance and a warmth and a beauty that brings everyone in and makes everyone feel comfortable. The workshop was transformational.

I spoke without the need of notes

I felt like I had a powerful message to deliver but I had always been nervous at the idea of having to stand free of a lectern or speech notes and talk to an audience for 30 or 40 minutes. Working with Tricia has given me the ability to effectively prepare a powerful presentation, and the ability to deliver that presentation with confidence, and without the need of notes; something I once thought not possible! I have walked away with a new found 'zest' and self-confidence! Not just in my ability to speak publicly and powerfully, but in my belief that I have a story that is worth telling, and that subsequently, I have the ability to help others by sharing my wisdom. Working with Tricia was truly fantastic!

Profound changes to the way our staff think, present and influence

The leadership presence sessions Tricia ran for us recently were excellent. The women involved have talked about making profound changes to the way they think, present and influence people. I really appreciated how the sessions were so carefully planned and focused on what we wanted and needed. The variety and pace of the workshops worked wonderfully. Thanks for all your work Tricia.

Wendy Teasdale-Smith CEO, SATAC

I gained new skills I'll never forget

Through the Powerful Presentations workshops I have, without doubt, materially benefited from Tricia’s deep understanding of what works, and perhaps more importantly, what does not work for a powerful presentation. Her simple, straightforward but unique insights are easy to get, remember and implement. Her techniques unlock the code for giving a powerful presentation. I really appreciated Tricia's professional and respectful but also playful and open way she led her workshops. The individual elements and interactive pieces were well thought through and very helpful. At the end of the workshops, I had a new understanding of not only the value, but also the importance of practice and of honing my presentation, particularly the first 2 minutes, and have gained new presentation skills that I will never forget.

Hugh Higgins Principal Policy Officer, Office of the Economic Development Board

Significant gains in my business

I’ve worked with Tricia on a number of occasions to improve my leadership communication skills, including presenting at conferences and dealing with the media. Tricia is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and has helped me communicate more effectively to make significant gains in my business. My time with her has been invaluable. I highly recommend working with Tricia.

Jason Gunn Managing Director, Oliver’s Real Food

Invaluable in my career transition

Tricia has the rare combination of extreme insight and accuracy which she conveyed beautifully through my astrology session. The skill that she carries made me feel as though she could see straight to the core of who I am, and helped to cut through to key areas that had been denied importance. Her unique counselling skills combined with her compassionate yet direct approach made me feel lovingly supported as some strong issues surfaced. My consultation has brought waves of clarity that have been filtering through for days since. It has been invaluable in helping me formulate an appropriate career transition. If you are seeking direction, insight into a confusing time, or greater self understanding, I would highly recommend a consultation with Tricia.

Natalie Graham Naturopath

Amazing results in our business

When you meet Tricia Karp, you will discover she epitomizes Leadership Presence. She is passionate about connecting with and inspiring others to develop their own leadership presence. I discovered this when I attended one of Tricia’s Wise Talk “Leadership Presence” workshops. Tricia makes you really think about what you do, how you do it AND WHY you do it! It was so thought provoking and enlightening that I organised for Tricia to work with other Leaders within our business to improve their leadership presence and their ability to connect with and inspire the people they lead. The results have been amazing!

Vicki Bastian National Human Resource Manager, NCML

It was amazing to watch such significant growth

Tricia ran a workshop for our teams to become stronger communicators and presenters. It was a challenging and confronting course, and our teams loved it and gained great benefit. It was amazing to watch such significant growth in just two days. Tricia has a unique ability to tackle the big issues and get fast results in a respectful and meaningful way. Her humour and friendliness put participants at ease from the beginning, and we appreciated her ability to push us. We were impressed by the way Tricia worked with people of varying levels of experience and confidence all in the same program. We thoroughly recommend the course, especially Tricia.

Yvonne Cloke & Paul Amos Executive Officer, Barossa Lower North Futures, & Business Culture Leader, The Barossa Co-op

Tricia unlocked my potential

This year has been one of the best for me personally and professionally, and Tricia has been a big part of this success. I started working with Tricia when all I thought I needed was some help with my confidence around presenting my research, but her guidance has stretched far beyond that. As a result of her intuition and guidance I have managed to completely change my career around and forge my own path. This time last year I would have never expected to be in the place I am today. Sure, I know I am the one with the research knowledge and I do give myself credit, but Tricia unlocked my potential by managing to rebuild my confidence after a long spell in a less than supportive work environment. She challenge me to write my own future. I feel blessed to have had her pop into my life at the right time - I couldn’t recommend her highly enough to anyone needing guidance.

I wrote my speech, workshop and book after one consultation with Tricia

I engaged Tricia to assist me with designing a speaking business for Ruth Barker - You Always Have a Choice. Primarily, to take my life story and share it so that it would serve others in their own lives. Tricia had the knowledge and experience to do this effectively and in no time we had the platform displayed. I went on to write my speech, workshop and book based on this initial design consultation with Tricia. I was impressed with her ability to guide me through the exact procedure needed in a supremely organised manner and that she had the right attitude to instil confidence in my ability. Mostly though, she was honest. Honest, when she felt something could be done better and honest when she told me not to spoil myself with formal training. Tricia could have taken money from me - spending time 'teaching me to speak' - but she did not - because she knew that being raw was necessary for my purpose. I respect this immensely. I have no hesitation in recommending the skills of Tricia Karp to any potential speaker.

Ruth Barker Inspirational Speaker & Author

Excellent program!

A valuable resource for anyone who aspires to be a great public speaker. I would recommend this to anyone. I came away knowing that great public speaking is not about polish, spin, being a professional, having years of experience or having the perfect speech. The secret to powerful speaking is about having an authentic message and connecting with your audience. Tricia, your passion, insights and the very effective way you challenged each one of us to give our best was great. The techniques you presented were easy to grasp, practical, and clearly work. Thank you!

Danielle Dunlevey Manager, National Material Supply, SA Power Networks

An obvious improvement in just half a day!

We asked Tricia to train our team of scientists to equip them to be more confident in their capacity to give great presentations. It’s an integral part of their job, and they’ve always been nervous about it. By the end of the session, the improvement was obvious in just three hours! All the feedback has been extremely positive. The team felt that the training focused us to self-assess what could be holding us back from being confident in our abilities, and provided skills that could be immediately implemented to improve our confidence, all in a non-threatening environment. Tricia is immensely professional, experienced, encouraging and constructive, and firm too. She creates a sense of fun in what can be a very confronting topic.

Dr Natasha Harvey Head, Centre for Cancer Biology

Extremely valuable training and excellent feedback

Tricia recently ran a training session for leaders in our accounting mentoring program. Tricia is a dynamic and professional trainer with an ability to create a supportive and fun environment while pushing participants to be their best. She customised the program to fit our specific needs. The delegates found the training extremely valuable and gave excellent feedback. We highly recommend Tricia to any organisation needing to ensure their staff present with confidence and power to drive their business outcomes.

Trevor Clark Founder & Director, Focus Growth Strategies

There's been an amazing difference

I was terrified about public speaking. I would have always taken the option of running out the door rather than having to stand up and say anything about myself. After working with Tricia, I am amazed at how confident I feel about delivering my message. There's been an amazingly big difference, from having a very limited capacity to feeling very comfortable in doing it.

Jane Lacey Principal, Lacey Personnel

I now have confidence and reassurance in my presenting abilities

I worked with Tricia because I wanted to become a more inspirational speaker who had the ability to empower and motivate an audience to make a positive change in their professional career. Tricia gave me clarity about what my message should be and how it needs to be structured for maximum impact. It also gave me confidence and reassurance in my own presenting abilities. Tricia's very easy to work with. She understood me, my needs, and the message I was trying to deliver to my audience. I always felt comfortable with testing her advice and my new skills with her. It was a comfortable venture beyond my comfort zone!

Lisa Cook Founder, Get On Board Australia

No notes and no slides: I would never have believed that was possible

One of the advantages of moving up the career ladder is being able to delegate. I became an expert at delegating public presentations! Tricia came highly recommended to me as the person to overcome my reluctance to be “seen”. One Powerful Speaking Retreat and Media Training (complete with cameraman!) and I was off and running. Tricia’s framework for developing and delivering my message with authenticity and ability to just “own it” is incredibly powerful. I have gone from sitting in the back of the class in international training sessions to being comfortable being at the front of the class and speaking in front of an international audience without hesitation. No notes and no powerpoint - I would never have believed that was possible. I will be forever grateful for Tricia’s safe guidance through the depth of self-reflection it takes to achieve this confidence. Not only do I highly recommend Tricia for her speaking, coaching and media skills I wonder how on earth I managed before!

Lynn Bailey Senior Manager Medical Services

My confidence has greatly improved

Where to start... Tricia is incredible to work with. My expectations were far surpassed and my confidence greatly improved. I now realise that I have a lot to offer as a speaker and team leader. I'll be able to own and feel proud of my achievements. I'm not exaggerating when I say that the workshop was life-changing. My confidence in my ability to sell myself to new clients has greatly increased. It was an incredible three days, and I loved the connection with the other amazing women who participated in the workshop.

Dorothy Di Stefano Account Director, Image & Substance

I believe in myself more as a leader

The leadership presence workshop was excellent. It made me take a step back and look at my behaviours. What I learned has changed the way I supervise people. The main differences are that I now pay more attention to staff and their needs, listen more without interrupting, and delegate more. I'm working on improving my communication skills. I'm also showing more appreciation, smiling and saying "thank you" more, and I believe in myself as a leader much more than I did before the workshop.

Jack Dona Commercial Leader

Spot on predictions

Tricia identified exactly what was happening for me in my life, and at a very deep level, helped me to prepare myself for the changes ahead. So far, her predictions have been spot on!

Susanna Carman Leadership Consultant

The workshop uncovered my secret assets as a leader

The leadership presence workshop uncovered my secret assets and led me to believe in myself as a powerful leader. The workbook was full of insightful, probing questions and activities to safely support me towards owning my leadership style. It was inspiring and I’m grateful to Tricia for her guidance into my inner resource as a leader.

Anne Rodgers Business Director

Tricia's skills are second to none

I enrolled in one of Tricia's workshops to help me address some work-related challenges. I am new to this organisation and was getting to know the culture and key players. The safe, supportive environment Tricia skillfully created enabled me to work through and hone in what the real issue was - not what I initially thought! Tricia's skill in bringing a diverse group of capable people together and creating an essential safe space in which to explore, enrich and grow is second to none. Thank you Tricia!

Carolyn Ball Change Manager

I met my partner on the day my chart predicted!

For the past two years my astrology chart has been my essential guide for planning my year ahead, understanding the ebbs and flows of my energy levels and motivation, utilising the most fertile times for productivity and creativity, and allowing kindness to myself when in need of nurturing and healing. Tricia explains in simple terms what the planets have in store so I am prepared and more accepting of what lays ahead. It's not hocus pocus to me, just practical knowledge that is imperative in my life. A year ago Tricia told me to prepare to get ready for my partner to come into my life after 8 years single. Ten months later I am about to marry him and he did arrive on the day she predicted!!

Martine Renwick Business owner

My whole perspective on leadership is different now

The leadership presence workshop helped me understand what I want to achieve as a leader, and the legacy I wish to leave. This is not something I’ve considered previously, I’ve been more concerned about ‘getting it done’. I have learnt that having a purpose, self-awareness and positive mindset are more important attributes and it’s through this that I want to improve. I particularly liked seeking out feedback from others using the two-question process. It was very enlightening and something I’ll do on a regular basis in the future.

Tony Kovios Team Leader

I loved it!

I found my experience with Tricia to be supportive, informative and confirmed what direction I felt I wanted to move in. Very down to earth and straight forward mixed with compassion and spot on intuition. I walked away with some very realistic goals and processes to work through. I loved it!

Kerry Hickey Teacher

I can explore any topic

I have been the beneficiary of Tricia's astrology services for many years. Tricia has provided me with insights into my personality and life purpose as well as predictions on the best timing for decisions relating to my life, work and relationships. She also has provided me with specialised services such as relationship and children's charts. There are times when I have deeply personal dilemmas that I explore in Tricia's sessions. As well as being very grounded in her approach, Tricia always makes me feel very comfortable and relaxed in a session. I can explore any topic and her insights are sensitive, objective and empathic. In these sessions I feel very supported to gather the information necessary to take a proactive approach to opportunities, challenges and change in my personal and work life.

Melanie Manton Psychotherapist & Mediator

Magic moments

Thank you so much Tricia for being part of the team as our astrologer here at Gaia Retreat. You have a beautiful heart, a gracious way and shared many magic moments with our guests. Thank you!

Rani Beattie Gaia Retreat Spa Manager

Amazing insights

As a managing director of an industrial company I am probably not the typical person seeking astrology readings but I wanted to learn more about the planetary movements and how they impact on our lives. Tricia showed an amazing insight that helped satisfy my curiosity but more importantly identified key periods of significant opportunity, challenge and growth in my personal and business life. It was an extraordinary year for me in many ways and closely aligned with Tricia's reading at the beginning of the year. I trust Tricia's insight and she has a wonderful ability to communicate her readings in a charming, sensitive and genuine way, more like a friend and counsellor. I had my first reading for inquisitive fun, and I now look forward to Tricia's readings as part of welcoming the new year.
