About me

I am Caroline Gooch and I empower both big people and small people using a variety of tools. I am passionate about nature. I am a horticulturist and using these skills along with being a Grief Recovery Specialist - educating grief and loss openly and an NLP Practitioner – how you talk to yourself. Together, my approach is practical and down to earth, I want to pass on life-long tools that work for you. I am straight talking and intuitive working with parents and other family member, educators and volunteers that all work with children. I also work with young adults 18+, helping them explore this crazy world and give them the tools they need to for a balanced approach to work and other aspects of life.

I work within my community helping kids, Girl Guiding and running my local Rainbow Group, helping out at my daughter’s school and a variety of other local projects. I am passionate about giving others tools to help with anxiety, stress and other emotions that you may see as limiting.

Working with you either online (worldwide) or face to face (Based in Cotswolds between Swindon/Cirencester),

What others say

Pauline...'I feel that I now have the tools to help me deal with the losses my children have experienced'

I recently did the “helping children with loss” programme and had some great training from Caroline. After reading the book and completing the course, I feel that I now have the tools to help me deal with the losses my children have experienced. I found Caroline very caring and considerate in the way she delivered the information to me. Following this course, I have now decided to do the “grief recovery” programme. Thank you Caroline for all your help; I have learnt so much from your sessions. You have given me the confidence to help my children deal with any losses they may experience in the future. I would highly recommend this programme to anyone helping their children heal from any major losses they have had.

Claire McLaughlin ...' We are now reviewing our current provision to include some of the Helping Children with Loss ideas.'

Kempsford Primary have recently received some great training from Caroline whilst completing the Helping Children with Loss programme. During each session, we were able to reflect on current practise and could see how some of the ideas from the programme could have a positive impact on the children at our school. Caroline presented the information clearly and consulted us throughout, making sure that what was being delivered was relevant to us. We are now reviewing our current provision to include some of the Helping Children with Loss ideas.

Isabel... 'Caroline has the kindest heart and has assisted me so much on my journey to feeling complete with my losses!'

I started to work with Caroline in September 2020, I had been suffering with several losses and as a young person I needed some guidance and a heart with ears. I find Caroline to be so caring and considerate. Caroline worked with me and helped me to complete the grief recovery programme in a way that suited me and at times that suited me. I thought coming into this programme while doing college work at the same time would be extremely difficult, but Caroline has prioritized me and my needs above her own. She is a pleasure to chat to and not only did I learn from her the ways of the grief recovery method but I have gained a new friend. I love to call Caroline and chat with her before our sessions. Caroline has been nothing but helpful and kind to me and I would highly recommend anyone suffering with loss of any kind to speak to Caroline. There is no judgement, only kindness and great listening skills. Caroline has a diverse way of communicating, she doesn’t interrupt and she always says the right things. I feel like I can talk to Caroline about absolutely anything and she will know exactly what to say! Caroline has the kindest heart and has assisted me so much on my journey to feeling complete with my losses!
