About me

My name is Carol Macey and I am a life coach working in Faversham, Canterbury and the surrounding areas.

You can think of me as a personal trainer for your mind – I will help you to build your strength and resilience, overcome ‘injuries’ and setbacks, and generally enhance your performance in life.

Perhaps there are obstacles you would like to overcome. Habits or behaviours you would like to ditch? Or directions you would prefer to take?

As a coach, I can show you a range of techniques to help you move forward in your life, relationships or career – and help you use those techniques more effectively. I specialise in helping my clients regain confidence, self esteem, balance and emotional wellbeing. Particularly after a major event such as bereavement, loss or the breakdown of a relationship.

Many of us don’t realise we’re living with high levels of stress, bad sleep, poor concentration or low energy until something goes badly wrong. But think back to a time when you felt more in control, when life wasn’t just a constant barrage of challenges, brickbats and demands – finding flow and balance again is possible, and when you do, it feels amazing!  If you need some help to regain that flow I have a number of tools to help you do that.

I am also a bereaved Mother and the author of 'The spirit of Christopher'.  Please click on  www.thespiritofchristopher  for more details

I offer 'Wellness coaching' to health and wellbeing by supporting people in making healthy changes around physical health, weight management, physical activity and bad habits.

I can provide you with the support and motivation you need to continue to make positive changes, prevent relapse and continue to improve your life and reach your goals for the future.

At our initial meeting, we can talk about which of these tools might be suitable for your personal situation or development, and how I can help.

If you would like a free no-obligation consultation to find out how we can work together, please text or email me with your contact number and email address and I will be in touch as soon as possible.

If you feel that you are not as emotionally healthy as you would like to be then just as you can improve your physical fitness by working at it, you can improve your emotional fitness too.
Life Coaching can help with your mind, body and spirit.


'I’m really glad I consulted Carol. I would recommend Carol – she really helped me with changing the way I think and act for the better. Now I have a much more positive outlook in life. I'm so happy with the results – thank you!'

'[Carol] is a warm, gentle, empathic, non-judgemental woman with great skills and some very useful tools. She helped me to move from an amorphous mass of dissatisfaction and feeling ‘stuck’ to working out what was good about my life, and what could do with change. We then worked on various ideas about how to implement the changes I was looking for. Some worked out, some didn’t, and she helped me to see that what didn’t work wasn’t so much my failure as needing to try a different approach.

Starting life coaching can feel very frightening, and the best thing about Carol is that she made me feel completely safe.'

'The coaching sessions I've had with Carol have really helped me to see what is important in my life.  Carol is very good at listening, non-judgemental and very patient.  I never felt rushed and Carol gently guided me throughout the process.  Thank you!'
