I worked with Caroline over several months to understand my core values and strengths and how to apply these to my everyday work life so that I could focus on my authentic leadership style.
During our sessions, I was able to explore the various successes as well as missed opportunities I’ve experienced throughout my career. Caroline consistently challenged me to rethink my approach and we worked on building confidence and self-worth.
Within six months, I achieved a promotion and a pay rise, and am currently really loving my job – with my work being recognised across the company. The return on investment has been in excess of 15X.

Working with Caroline gave me clarity and focus about what I really want in my future career. She gently nudged me back on track when I had doubts about my decisions, and helped me really understand what my values mean to me and why they are so important.
The exercises helped me uncover my strengths and highlighted my weaker tendencies while the sessions were really helpful to bottom out what I had learnt.
I highly recommend Caroline’s coaching – working with her was a joy.
Sonja Jones | Founder; Bread + Jam
Taking on a new role within a larger organisation and with slightly wider remit than my previous role, Caroline was great at helping me focus my thinking on how best to transition successfully into the new environment.
An initial meeting before joining the company and then subsequent follow-up sessions, once in role, meant I was able to use our time as live-action planning sessions which was invaluable in hitting the ground running.
Caroline is a great listener (I can talk…) and very good at pithily playing back what she has heard and helping you see the wood for the trees.
Emma | Global Brand Director; Financial Services
Coaching has helped me gain clarity on my career and development goals, as well as suggesting practical steps to get me there.
I view my work and life with a new perspective and have learned about managing stress, resilience and leadership.
With Caroline as my coach in the past six months, I have successfully secured a promotion.
Caroline has really helped me to set goals within this role, helping me to problem-solve to overcome any issues that have developed.
I have since gained excellent feedback from my line manager and wider team, much of which I attribute to my work with Caroline.
Fayrouz | Senior Campaigns Manager; Prime Minister’s Office & Cabinet Office
I really appreciated how much Caroline listened, understood and coached me in new ways of approaching challenging situations.
Our sessions were relaxed and fun, and I enjoyed the experience of working with Caroline immensely.
Anna | Chief Marketing Officer; Digital Start Up
I benefited hugely from my coaching sessions with Caroline. She brought great structure to every conversation and her style and approach support really deep and analytical discussion.
Caroline is able to use her years of experience in senior business roles and her advanced skills as a coach to guide conversations to positive conclusions all with clear actions to be worked through in advance of the next session. However, she is not prescriptive – all outcomes were defined by myself through Caroline’s guidance and support.
I learnt a lot about myself, including much greater clarity on my short and longer term direction of travel, all built around a core set of values Caroline helped me define for myself.
I now am much more focused on how to utilise my strengths to support my journey and how to work through my development areas in order to not let these stand in the way of progress.
I have noticed a marked change in the way I approach situations both inside and outside of work since I started coaching sessions with Caroline and this difference has been noticed by others around me, including my team.
I would thoroughly recommend Caroline as a coach, should you wish to maximise your potential.
Will | Strategic Projects Director; Not-For-Profit Sector
I have had development and coaching courses through my employer, but nothing compares to getting out of the office environment and focussing entirely on your development needs and goals with a coach such as Caroline.
During my sessions, I felt empowered and was able to build a structured plan and set of goals that I wanted to deliver.
I was encouraged to implement these in-between my sessions in order to reflect on success and benefits during coaching.
I wholeheartedly believe that the insight I unlocked while working with Caroline has helped me improve both in my role and in my position within my company, a change noted by my peers.
I have since been promoted to a management role with one of the biggest customers in our business.
I believe without Caroline’s support it would have taken longer or been more difficult to do this journey on my own.
Simon | National Account Director; Top 10 UK FMCG
I have found having Caroline as a coach extremely valuable.
The initial phase of exploring my skill set and personality traits was really interesting and has helped me to better understand what is important to me in my job role, and where my strengths lie.
Caroline helped me to build my confidence and define an actionable plan so I can work smarter, and create a role that I feel totally happy in.
