Are you struggling to make the changes you want to see in your life?

I’ll support you to work out what matters to you and help you develop sustainable changes that positively transform your life.

Real change starts to happen when you realise that you have a choice.

But if making changes to our lives was easy, we’d all be fit and healthy and feel fulfilled in our relationships and rewarded in our careers. You may have tried making changes in the past yourself and found them impossible to sustain.

Knowing what we ‘should’ do doesn’t tend to be enough to change habits that have taken a lifetime to develop. Added to that, often we can’t see the things that are blocking us. We need someone to shed light, by asking curious questions that encourage us to think about things differently and gain fresh insights.

You have a choice
Woman reflecting

Unlike a trainer or mentor, a coach focuses entirely on you and your context and doesn’t offer advice – you are the expert on your life and will be supported to find the answers you need. Unlike therapy, which works with past trauma, coaching focuses on the present and the future you want to create. We’ll talk about your life, extract the learning, and work out practical solutions that will make your life better. It’s as simple as that.

Many of us get stuck in our minds, believing we can think our way out of feeling stuck, going over and over something until we feel exhausted and more confused than before. Including what we experience in our body (somatics) taps into sources of powerful, authentic wisdom. So exploring not only what you’re thinking, but what you’re experiencing, helps identify and address the root causes of the challenges you face and increases your capacity to tolerate and resolve them. For many clients, this is a new experience that develops their intuition and increases their trust in themselves.

In our confidential sessions, I’ll support you to work out what matters to you and help you develop sustainable changes that positively transform your life.

Investing in yourself

When you’ve put your career, your family and everyone else first, investing in yourself might not feel easy. But know that doing so often has a knock-on effect on the well-being of others in your life.

Beause permitting yourself to shine permits others too.

In my experience, we need at least three months of working together to see the results my clients seek.

Put yourself first

If you’re feeling stuck in the middle of your life but unsure about exactly what needs to change, this is for you.

With my full support, you’ll get a clear picture of what’s going on in your life, discover what’s important to you and reveal your hidden obstacles, super powers and talents. You’ll build trust in yourself, so that any changes are aligned with who you are, and happen organically, from your authentic, intuitive self.

You’ll feel more in control of your life, which in turn truly represents the way you want to live.

  • Twenty-two 1:1 60-minute sessions on Zoom

What people say

Carole listened to the emotional response I was having to a situation and helped me to explore coping mechanisms, which feel really achievable.

Carole helped me to work through some issues with procrastination following a major life change. I have immediately put some changes in place that we talked about. Thank you Carole!

Employee, Give Clarity

Carole helped me think through a really complex situation and realise where I need to separate out layers of logistics vs. what I want. She also enabled me to have more self-compassion.
