About Your Relationship Coach - Caroline Burr
About Your Relationship Coach - Caroline Burr
Caroline Burr is a specialist relationship coach working with individuals and couples. Her warmth, intelligence, energy and boldness create a safe environment to fully explore relationship, with yourself and between you and your partner.

Relationships

“Relationships are at the heart of our lives as human beings, they are integral to our happiness. Having struggled with relationships myself, I went in search of answers and wanted to share what had helped me and specialise in relationships“
“I find it is usually a relief for clients to realise that relationships help us learn about ourselves and cannot be ‘perfect’, as much modern media reports.” Accustomed to working with couples on their relationship, Caroline has the ability to manage highly charged sessions. “In helping clients to discover a new awareness and understanding of relationship, I enable them to find stability in themselves and increased confidence, choice and happiness in relationships with others.”
“I’m told my understanding, compassion and creativity are invaluable to clients”

Caroline is unusual having combined life coaching with psychotherapeutic and counselling based relationship training. Clients benefit as she has a wider base to work from, integrating the positivity of focusing on the life and relationships they want, alongside addressing blocks and patterns related to the past.

 

Prior to starting coaching in early 2002 and rebranding as ‘Your Relationship Coach’ in 2005, Caroline worked as a Change Management Consultant at Unisys and in Business Development at Norman Broadbent. This included working with clients such as Microsoft, RBS, McKinsey, Ernst & Young, Cisco and Shell, as well as consulting with a range of VCs, incubators and start-ups.

Married with three sons, including twins, Caroline is learning all the time from her own relationships and life, as well as ongoing training and supervision. With all three children at primary school she is a busy mum, navigating piles of lego and washing endless muddy clothes. “I love making time for my passion for supporting others around relationships.
“Caroline is one of the most energetic and creative colleagues and former students we have ever worked with. She is full of good ideas and ready to implement them, while retaining her sensitivity to sensitive emotional subjects and a terrific sense of humour.”
Nick Duffell - Founder of Centre for Gender Psychology, Man Woman Project & Boarding School Survivors, Husband & Father
“Caroline has a down to earth, human approach in her client work, is conscientious and goes to great lengths to understand her clients and their concerns. She incorporates psychological theory with experiential practice which leads to her work being grounded and thorough.

Caroline engages in her own personal psychological work and uses supervision to ensure her professional work is at a high standard – Caroline walks her talk.”
