Charlene Edwards - Uplift Coaching
I offer solution focused coaching to children, young people, parents and women. It is a non-directive process in a confidential space. We work in partnership but ultimately the goals, ideas, solutions and the action comes from you.
Through careful questioning and challenging, combined with listening, I can support you to work out the important issues and to identify your strengths and resources to make changes.
Children and Young People - providing early intervention, helping to identify and achieve goals, develop relationships with others, build confidence, manage anxiety, stress and transitions, reduce exclusions and detentions, improve attendance levels etc.
Parents - coaching provides the space and time to assess your values, prioritise issues in your family and focus on the kind of parent you want to be. I will help you to break things down into manageable chunks and to identify your own answers, giving you the confidence to be the parent you want to be.
Women - helping women to find the answers and confidence that move them to where they want to be - career coaching, confidence building, personal development etc.
Coaching can take place Face to Face if in London or via Skype or Zoom in London or anywhere in the UK.

I have worked with children and families for over 30 years, helping them to find solutions to the many challenges that families face.
My experiences led me into coaching where I saw the opportunity to spend more time helping people identify their hopes, strengths and resources to make steps towards doing things differently.
I’m particularly interested in coaching children and young people who are struggling at school - exclusions, friendships, anxiety, lack of confidence, exam stress etc. I also work with parents to be the parents they want to be, manage the demands of working and parenting etc.
When not coaching children/parents I coach women in work. I have worked in a number of charities and Local Authorities coaching women who are new to management and women wanting to take the first step into management. I also do private coaching outside of the workplace for women who feel ‘stuck’ and who are unsure about what to do next.
Areas of coaching I deal with
