About us

Hi I’m Carol.

I am passionate about helping individuals and organisations to flourish.

I believe we are here for a reason; each one of us has a unique role to play and a contribution to make for the greater good of mankind. Striving to achieve personal goals, purely for the betterment of ourselves, leads to anxiety, fear, pride, comparison with others and ultimately disappointment and failure. Living life from a position of LOVE for others leads to a life of meaning, virtue and true happiness.

It is important that we are able to answer questions such as:

'Who am I?'
'Why do I exist'?
'What do I value most'?
'What is my calling'?
‘How can I find meaning in my life?’

My early career was as a software engineer before moving into project/programme management and senior management roles,with a London based IT company, where I had responsibility for leading national and local government change programs includingimplementation of major policy changes to adult social care for a number of local councils.

I have 20 plus years’ experience of offering spiritual mentoring from a non-religious perspective, including running numerous retreats, courses and serving as director of pastoral ministries for a local church.  Throughout most of my adult life I have intentionally adopted a lifestyle that embraces many spiritual disciplines including, gratitude, contemplation, mindfulness, daily spiritual reading, self–examination and forgiveness. Research shows that spiritual practices increase positive emotions and encourage healthy lifestyles(Lomas, Hefferon, & Ivtzan, 2014).

I’ve recently returned to the UK after living abroad for 7 years; 6.5 years in Nairobi and Qatar for 10 months. Whilst living in Nairobi, I focussed on supporting individuals and organizations with a vision to reduce poverty and ensure a more equitable and just society. See www.compassea.com.  My client’s include entrepreneurs, senior leaders and ‘world changers’ from the US, East Africa and Europe.

I offer a range of different types of coaching:
Career, Executive, Life, Leadership, Organisational, Spiritual

Coaching conversations with clients often focus around areas such as:

  • To find meaning in my life by understanding my calling and purpose
  • To achieve greater freedom and confidence by overcoming limiting beliefs
  • To know my values and be fully aligned with these in my life and in the work place (e.g. gratitude, tolerance)
  • To know my strengths and to be intentional about using them
  • To be intentional about how I use my time and what I prioritise in order to achieve a better work life balance
  • To consider a change to my career path so that I can integrate my different interests, qualifications and experiences
  • Focus on improving work related skills – (e.g. negotiation, active listening, powerful questions, setting boundaries and communication) to increase effectiveness

Please do get in touch if these issues resonate with you.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
