"I'm not the sort of guy who would have ever consider coaching - nor am I usually one to leave reviews. Working with Caroline I have been able to spend some time each week, relieving myself of all the troubles and worries of modern life. I found our sessions to be brief instances of calmness and reflection amidst the frantic day-to-day. I also found the sessions invaluable in de-cluttering my mind to allow focus on the important bits of my role, even beginning to focus on things that I had previously never considered, such as my internal network and perception amongst peers. I would recommend Caroline (and have done) without hesitation. She possesses that incredibly rare and incredibly valuable trait of allowing people to feel completely comfortable whilst discussing things they would never normally divulge. Caroline always remained impartial whilst offering advice when necessary, often drawing from her vast and impressive experience."
“Looking back to the start of my coaching sessions with Caroline, I cannot express how much of a difference they have made in my life. Over the last 6 months I have gone through a promotion at work and a stressful house move and I can honestly say that my coaching with Caroline has been invaluable during this time. She has helped me to approach challenges more strategically and to manage the small hurdles in life more effectively. I really believe that I have come out the other side as a more confident person. If you are looking to progress in your career and manage your work/life balance more successfully, I would highly recommend coaching session with Caroline.”
"Caroline is an exceptional coach. She has helped me find clarity through a very challenging time, personally and professionally. I felt heard, supported and understood, I always came away knowing exactly what needs to be done, and more importantly I have found our sessions invaluable. Caroline's energy, warmth and insightfulness is amazing and I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a coach”.
“I started coaching sessions with Caroline after I returned to work from my first maternity leave. Returning from maternity leave and coming back to a different role was challenging to begin with. Caroline helped enormously with the transition back into work. The sessions provided a framework, which helped me to reevaluate what was important to me. With Caroline’s help I was able to work out how to achieve my goals, identify changes and ensure a good work life balance. She was able to help me organise my thoughts when I needed to address difficult situations. Caroline’s ability to help me see things from a different perspective was so useful. Caroline has always been available on the end of the phone whenever I have needed a quick chat or a bit of advice, which has been a great support over the years. I have worked with Caroline on and off over the last 3 years and can honestly say she has made a huge difference.”
“Over the 6 months I have had life coaching sessions with Caroline, I have seen a vast difference in my ability to manage stress at work. Caroline has helped me to identify situations where I feel most stressed and worked with me to refine my behavioural response so that I feel in control of the outcome when faced with a challenge. The skills that I have learned are an asset to my professional career and my manager has commented on the positive changes that she has observed in my management of situations whilst under pressure, which was reflected in my end of year performance review. The sessions with Caroline were all the more valuable as she has a very successful career in Finance. She understood the context of my work goals and has equipped me with techniques to think differently and adapt my approach within the workplace to get the best out of a situation. Caroline’s practical support and approachable demeanour made me feel at ease and working together enabled me to think differently and come up with solutions to tackle areas I wanted to address. I’m so grateful to Caroline for the positive impact she has had on my life. My confidence has grown and I would recommend Caroline’s coaching to anyone.”
“Rather than simply giving me answers to solutions, Caroline was wonderful at helping me develop my own skills and learn to build my own thought processes. This means I now approach situations differently and will continue to do so going forward. Because Caroline has worked in the corporate environment for many years and in senior positions, I found she could relate to the challenges I was facing very effectively. Likewise she was a very open-minded and non-judgemental to any challenge I was facing/approaching. Overall, she helped me change the way I approach big parts of my professional and personal life for the better.”
“In what has been a very challenging and fast moving year for my me, Caroline has been a great help indeed. I have found our sessions incredibly useful in recognising barriers to my performance at work and making tangible steps to overcome them. This was the first time I have ever had a coach and I have to admit I went into it with a sceptical mind. 6 months later, I would recommend a coach for anyone wanting to better themselves’ as I feel Caroline has done that for me’’
“I find my sessions with Caroline to be a hugely valuable and worthwhile experience and I would highly recommend her coaching sessions to anyone. It's great to have someone who's held senior positions in a high-level business environment on your side. We were able to set clear goals and objectives and work towards them in a coherent and positive manner. The sessions have helped me plan ahead with confidence and Caroline has been a reassuring supportive influence throughout. I've found that the work we've done together has been most helpful in getting me to appreciate my role and influence both at work and at home."
“Caroline's coaching skills are second to none. She balances her sessions with a healthy measure of listening and objective direction. She is a very approachable and sympathetic person resulting in a seemingly effortless unburdening of issues, which she then constructively helps you to manage and create solutions for. I found myself able to address everything from work problems, which I had thought were insurmountable, to personal and private life matters that she helped me reappraise. I could not recommend her approach more highly for anyone seeking consultation."
“I have really enjoyed my coaching sessions with Caroline. Caroline has a fantastic ability to be incredibly supportive whilst also pushing you to challenge yourself to overcome any obstacles/issues you are facing both personally and professionally. The tools Caroline has taught me continue to be useful and practical and I feel more able and confident to tackle challenges when they arise. I would highly recommend Caroline.”
“The best thing about coaching for me is that it has taught me to coach myself. It's given me the tools I need to analyse a situation from alternative perspectives in order to deal with it more objectively. I feel more effective both at work and within my personal life as a result of working with Caroline.”
“Having heard great reviews from my colleagues, I applied for coaching with Caroline a little sceptical of its benefit. However after 12 weeks of working with Caroline I found it to be one of the most important decisions I made for both my career and personal life. I have really benefited from discussing particular scenarios constructively, gaining feedback and applying techniques toward specific challenges, such as dealing with productivity during busy periods at work, improving time management and building confidence in my public speaking/presenting. The sessions have really helped to develop and drive my career forward. I would thoroughly recommend Caroline and coaching to anyone.
“Working with Caroline has been amazing. From the first session, Caroline immediately made me feel at ease, which allowed me to be truly open and honest about my feelings. During the sessions, we discussed topics that I would normally try to avoid, however I always came away feeling like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders and with a sensible action plan to make some positive steps in the right direction. Caroline was super friendly and calm in her approach at all times, however also prompted me to stay on top of my actions and accountable for my progress. I would most definitely recommend Caroline to anyone looking for a coach. Thanks so much, I miss you.”
“It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Caroline and I cannot recommend her coaching enough. Caroline expertly guided me through what has been – professionally and personally – my most momentous year to date. During the time we were working together, events occurred in my personal life, which I truly believe could have derailed me were it not for the coaching sessions. Knowing I had a regular touch-point with Caroline represented a real boost during stressful times. Professionally, I have made marked progress this year; I am on track for a promotion and was given the amazing opportunity to spend several months working in two of our international offices. I credit this wholly to Caroline’s encouragement to actually ask for opportunities as well as her sage advice: “Perception is reality.”
During and following the coaching, I have noticed myself dealing with situations differently than I would have previously as well as doing things I would never have had the confidence to do before, such as suggest to a senior manager that a regular meeting might be unnecessary. Both friends and colleagues have commented that I am “like a different person” after the coaching – my self-confidence has grown and I feel able to be assertive, because Caroline has taught me that I deserve to be in the position that I am in. Caroline is extremely knowledgeable and skilled at what she does, yet at the same time manages to be one of the most down to earth and approachable people I have come across. She works with you to create a completely open, safe environment, all the while challenging you to push yourself and step out of your comfort zone. Caroline has equipped me with a whole range of time, workload, and people management techniques, as well as general pearls of wisdom and ways of thinking about things, which I will carry with me throughout my career. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have been able to work with Caroline and learn from her. I am very envious of colleagues embarking on the coaching now, and I wish I could have our time together over again.”
