About me

Hi, I'm Charlie, I’m a qualified Integral and Generative Coach. We all have hopes, dreams, and desires for ourselves, as well as for our families - however once we become parents, the experience can be challenging and overwhelming at times.

Becoming a parent and being a parent is one of life's greatest challenges!

Yet dealing with the daily juggling, searching for a work-life balance, not losing sight of our dreams and managing our energy for the often-turbulent journey is not an easy task. In these times we can disconnect and lose sight of what’s most important. Our wellbeing gets affected, we forget to take care of ourselves, we feel stuck and stop growing.

Connect In exists to support parents to be well & grow.

When we become parents, our wellbeing is greatly impacted for many reasons. Being a parent requires a great deal of energy and attention. That has to come from somewhere and when we are not taking care of ourselves our supplies & reserves get depleted.

Well-being is so much more than a yoga session or a mediation practice it’s about valuing ourselves. It’s about understanding all elements of wellbeing and self-care is only ever one small part. We have greater wellbeing when we:

  • are connected with our own purpose in life
  • know what we value most
  • own our own power
  • manage our energy in a way that fuels & nourishes us
  • are growing & learning

Well-being requires daily care and attention so that we can grow. Once we are well, we are fuelled & energised for the journey of growth, and growth means different things to us all depending on our circumstances and what’s important to us; your growth might be:

  • reconnecting with yourself & rediscovering what you value most
  • creating a new vision for yourself & your family
  • developing your relationship/communication with yourself/those around you
  • rediscovering your own purpose & meaning
  • returning to work
  • discovering a new relationship with work
  • managing a transition or growing at work
  • stepping into something new!

Working with me as your Coach.

The common thread through my whole career has been supporting people with their own journey of growth & development. And this each and every time is an utter privilege. I believe that having a solid companion for a journey of growth is a necessity and as human beings we are no meant to do our growth alone.

Each journey is unique, sacred, special and requires both compassion and challenge. Therefore, I limit the number of clients I take on so as I can always provide the support, care and holding that’s so very important.

When we are well and growing, we are connected and can sing from our souls!

Training, qualifications & experience

I’m a qualified Integral and Generative coach and hold a professional coaching credential with the International coaching federation (ICF). I am also a qualified NLP practitioner and hold a qualification for coaching with the Enneagram.

For over 20 years, I’ve been working in the world of training, development and coaching. I started in the field of education and habilitation, working with children with motor disorders to develop their independence and achieve their potential.

This led me to work in adult learning and development, where I trained and supported people in leadership and management, interpersonal communication, team dynamics and self-development.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

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.

I have availability during the day, evenings & weekends. Please contact me to see what I have free.
