"I feel so motivated after my sessions with Charlie and cannot wait for the next one to happen when it ends. Through exploring what’s on my mind - my visions and my challenges - I have unearthed practises that now form part of my new routine and my long term plan. It’s helpful to talk through different things but also Charlie asked questions that I've not thought about before to help my own journey of discovery. Now I'll be thinking a bit deeper into them in the future. I feel more confident about balancing work and home life."
Nicola, worldwide transport manager
"Charlie is such a fantastic coach and I deeply value all the time she has spent helping me achieve my goals - she really has changed my life which I am forever grateful for! From the support Charlie gave me, I was able to start daily healthy habits which was important for me as a mum. I had beliefs that it was not possible to look after me too and put myself to the bottom of the pile. Once I started to challenging my beliefs around this and saw that I could look after me too, then the whole family benefitted. Charlie is kind and compassionate and took the time to work with me on what I wanted. I did not think that I could succeed but with accountability alongside I now am a different person. I have learnt different skills and Charlie took me on a journey of self discovery."
Taylar, mum of two
"Charlie really helped me to assess my current values and helped me align with these. I had forgotten my strengths and exploring these and what got in the way helped me to see I can be a mum and more and how to harmonise these working together. Charlie helped me to reignite a spark within."
Annie, head teacher
I am passionate about helping people who may be struggling with things in life. This has led me to develop a diverse range of therapeutic and coaching skills. I specialise within mental health, working as an Occupational and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT). Alongside my private practice and coaching work, I have worked in the NHS for the last 18 years.
This means I bring a deep sense of compassion and understanding for my clients. I work with them to develop their careers, interests, communication skills, motivation and healthy habits, in order to thrive. Often my clients have experienced or are going through illness, and we look at ways to have a meaningful life beyond this and build a stronger, more resilient, mindset.
I became extremely passionate about early intervention and specialised in working with children and adolescents, people with a first episode of psychosis and maternal mental health.
From here, I trained in CBT and have been accredited since 2015. As a therapist, I help people to overcome struggles with different forms of anxiety and depression. We explore the mental health cycles that we can get into and how these can impact our day-to-day lives. Once I have an understanding of a client’s situation, we work to overcome obstacles and build our coping skills, challenging thinking and taking actions to achieve the client's goals. I work with adults, children and their parents.
I love my work as a therapist and currently work in the NHS and as a private therapist. It is rewarding supporting people with their lives over a period of time. Watching them grow to overcome their challenges to be able to function in life and to become stable in their mental and emotional wellbeing.
I added to my therapeutic work more recently with a coaching qualification. This means I am able to bring the compassion I use with my clients in therapy to women and teens looking for coaching.
What Drew You To Coaching?
Oh the pandemic - it changed a lot for so many people. I started to receive coaching myself as I was unsure of the direction I wanted to take with work and needed to quieten my inner critic. I found the experience was liberating, seeing how much you could grow and create change from things that had held me back for so long.
I felt a sense of wanting to pay it forward and empower other mums to silence their inner critic; helping more people to break through their self-doubt and embrace all that they want to be and feel self-assured in themselves.
This led me to qualifying as a life coach and neuro linguistic practitioner (helping to reprogramme our minds and limitations). I offer unique specialist support pulling from a vast array of therapeutic and coaching skills.
As a mum, we change so much in our identity and I struggled with the loss of my old self, finding my way as a mum and then returning to work filled with guilt. So many transitions and emotions; not to mention those limiting beliefs.
I am not good enough. I will fail.
I also married into a different culture and this had brought differing views on how to parent and the role of the mum. So navigating these, such as the expectation of being a stay-at-home mum when I wanted to return to work has given me understanding of different social and cultural pressures.
I work in a diverse way offering differing support. I offer 1:1 work with women wanting to focus on themselves and their challenges and hopes. I also offer coaching and therapy to teenagers, young people and parents as it is a turbulent time and key to learning emotional wellbeing. This can help parents learn how to support their children, forge a strong relationship and set young people up for the skills needed for life and confidence to work through key transitions.
My coaching programmes are bespoke to the individual and/ or family. For individual work with women, I offer two programmes which start with a 90-minute deep-dive session to gain clarity on your challenges and hopes. From here, sessions are hourly. Both programmes include email support and check-ins. I work flexibly, fitting the sessions around your schedule.
6 sessions: £850
12 sessions: £1,499
I also offer a 90-minute breakthrough strategy session for £190.
I offer a similar format of 6 - 12 sessions for teens and parents. However, these programmes are more bespoke; what is offered is dependent on what is needed, such as working alone with a teenager or parent, or both together. This can be talked through to see what would be the most beneficial.
I offer payment plans that can be agreed together.
