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.
“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.”
“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.”
