About me

Hi, I’m Caroline, Personal Development Coach, Master NLP Coach, and 'mind/body’ Neuro-somatic focused Coach.  

Working with 'Midlifers'  facing frustrations and challenges in life. I help you to work though stresses and anxieties,  indecision and frustrations to rebalance your mind and refocus your life to feel happier, healthier and more successful as you seek to make positive change.

My coaching helps resolve the confusion of where you are now and your best way forward. You will identify what holds you back and what needs to change for a better life. Whether its your personal life, work, business, or self development.  

You might feel stuck, isolated or overwhelmed with anxiety and stress by your business,  increased work or family relationships and commitments.   Perhaps you lack energy, or confidence. These all affect your state of mind and wellbeing and with my help you can make change happen quickly.

You change your life by understanding how to take personal control of it.  I help you do that through my blend of neuroscience, psychology and somatic coaching to tackle what's causing your stress and overwhelm and learn to tap into the powerful relationship your brain has with your body to help you to think, feel and act differently. This is how you develop greater confidence, energy and positive lasting change.

Break through the negative barriers and beliefs, emotions and fears that stop you achieving your dreams and empower success. 

We often shy away from or are fearful of helping ourselves. We struggle with self-doubt, not enough-ness and fear. Negative emotions and anxieties caste shadows over us, our relationships, careers, and wellbeing. I have personally experienced this and it affected me mentally and even created physical trauma as a child. Understanding how the body reacts to how we think, we  find solutions and take more ownership of who we are physically, mentally and emotionally. It can be done, and I am here to help you do just that.  Call or email me for a free initial chat.

I spent over 25 years in the ‘people’ business as an HR Chartered professional, working with organisations supporting, training, and developing people before I moved into coaching, retrained and refocused my own life through coaching and practitioner qualifications, accreditation and experience.  Where I am today ideally places me to help you find the direction you want, the goals you wish to achieve and the life and outcomes for yourself and your wellbeing.  If you are looking for a fresh approach, contact me. 

How I work 

I use a fusion coaching approach with tools and techniques from different coaching styles including NLP, CBT, somatic and neuro coaching that enable you to create positive shifts in your life. We all think, feel and behave in a unique way so I use a bespoke method, so we can remain flexible. This is also why if a particular style doesn’t suit you, I have many more options and tools we can try. Some also like walking coaching ‘walk:talk:coach' This creates helpful shifts in your body chemistry and energy flow through movement.   I work with the person, not just the issue, because life isn’t black or white. With my support, you embark on a purposeful journey of self awareness, insight and choice to get results from the first session. 

Although I can work with anyone wanting my help

·         I specialise with midlifers and midlife professionals in business or organisations,  leaders and HR professionals in need of support from someone that has been there and understands.

·         Organisations wanting to support their managers to be more humanistic, effective and successful and for their mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. 

.         Motorcyclists (Bikers) in need of mental support for stress and anxiety  from 'one biker to another!'

Sessions are confidential, reasonably priced and governed by the ethical standards of the industry bodies. I will support and challenge you in your thinking and guide you.  You can trust that I'll offer perspective, honesty, encouragement and support every step of the way to help you achieve your personal and professional goals.

Examples of how I have helped others:

Anxiety, stress and personal issues
Loss of personal identity
Confidence building and self esteem
Securing a new job/ Career transitioning 
Achieving goals or outcomes
Increasing productivity
Negative of unhelpful thoughts
Improving relationships
Professional development
Leadership effectiveness and people management capabilities 
Resolving professional and personal issues/removing barriers 


"The sessions have been invaluable. I can see a massive change in myself my thoughts are clearer and more positive.  I have direction and space in my head to think now and am more responsive to others and to situations rather than being reactive. My emotions are more balanced.  Others have also noticed a shift in me. I used to have so much chaos and noise in my head I couldn’t function, and it had affected me very negatively with relationships, and in worklife. I now have a much better outlook on life and in my drive to manage my business more effectively."

"I have found this a powerful positive experience. I started the coaching for personal reasons, mostly to clear my head of noise and free myself from negativity.  However, this has changed my life in additional ways that  I hadn’t appreciated would happen.  It has also benefitted my business hugely and consequently I made the decision to put the investment through the business because of the direct impact it has had upon it. The effects have been felt not only by myself but those around me in the business.  We are now in a much better stronger position to move forwards, than just a few short months ago."

"The coaching was really well structured and perfectly tailored to my personal situation. Each session gave me new lessons, science-backed techniques and ways of re-looking at situations to take into my daily practice. I love the fact that it didn't seem to matter "how I'd got myself into that state" but remained forward-focused and concentrated on dealing with the now and the future, in a really practical and understandable way." 

“I found Caroline extremely approachable and professional, challenging my thoughts and encouraging when facing past negative experience, changing them into positives. I found it also very beneficial visualising the future and taking practical steps to start the process of change. Thank you for your support.”

“ I always get so much from talking with Caroline. Different ways of looking at what I’m going through and how to move forwards from it”

“Everything was going through my head at 100 miles per hour. A family member recommended I speak to Caroline and it was the best thing I ever did. I worked through issues and Caroline kept me positive and motivated and helped me stay focused.”

How we begin

Coaching relies on a relationship based on trust and chemistry so our initial conversation is important and as much to get to know each other better as it is to understand your needs. 

All you need is curiosity, a little motivation and to keep an open mind.
