To bring real and sustainable solutions to the problems of human flourishing for individuals and organisations.


On the search for meaningful solutions?

Looking for a place to shine a light on your developmental challenges? Make an appointment with our Director, lead coach and consultant who will answer your questions and ask some illuminating questions of her own.

Why choose us

Lifeflowbalance Coaching and Consulting specialises in helping high performing people and organisations regain clarity, focus, direction and drive when you get stuck or are approaching a major challenge.

The complex challenges of modern living inevitably create conditions that exercise our resilience and test our certainties; the strategies, approaches, behaviours, habits, beliefs and values that got you where you are will not necessarily keep you at the top of your game as you move forward toward new horizons and aspirations.

We work with you to mine that untapped potential, set goals for new growth, and work with you through the process of transformation.


Our service values

Evidence Based

Our work is underpinned by a coherent theoretical foundation and research-based practice. We keep abreast of current and emerging thinking and practice in the field of human and organisational development and integrate this into our work with clients where we feel it will help them toward meaningful solutions.

Intuitive and Creative
We understand people and the complexities of human systems. Sometimes we just need to listen and respond to what emerges. This is the value we add that cannot be easily quantified but which means we deliver what you need, when you need it in a way that works for you. Genuinely bespoke application.
High Professional Standards
Accredited by the Association for Coaching we abide by the global standard of ethics in coaching. We are independently quality assured by Society of Education Consultants (SEC). We have an ICO certificate and take client confidentiality, privacy and data protection seriously.
Qualified, Accredited & Supervised
All our practitioners are suitably qualified, belong to their relevant professional association and are supervised in order to ensure on-going fitness to practice. Our lead coach is additionally, accredited as an executive coach by the Association for Coaching (AC).


“Charmaine is a truly exceptional coach.”

Jo Elderidge, Deputy Head, The Fernwood School, Nottingham.

“Charmaine has helped me to develop a better understanding of the steps needed to lead on a whole school initiative. The coaching experience had impact on my confidence and ability to lead on a whole school initiative. I think that it would be useful for all new SLT members to be given some developmental coaching such as this.” Leadership Development Coaching

S. Peel, Assistant Head Teacher, Rushcliffe School, October 2016

“My coaching relationship with Charmaine has been both a revelation and life-changing.  Her effect on my life, both at work and at home, has been considerable and lasting. I highly recommend her as a coach.” Executive Life Coaching

Teacher, Fernwood School, Nottingham, March 2016

“One of the best sessions we’ve had.  Charmaine Roche ran an excellent session and we all got something out of it. It was such an open, creative and thought-provoking 3 hours. A huge thank you to Charmaine and all the women who came and made it such an enjoyable experience.” Resilience Workshop

Sonia Long, Rose Associates, CEO, 2016

“The training went really well, I was so pleased that everyone engaged. I feel it has given me the strength to be able to calmly remind the team of what we discussed in the training and put it into practice.” Team Resilience Training

Office Manager, Ellis Guildford School, August 2017

“Working with Charmaine gave us renewed clarity. Having someone who is aware of our roles and responsibilities but does not have all the baggage enables a new set of eyes to observe things that may well be obscured from the team itself. The team coaching was a real insight and thought-provoking, thank you!” Leadership Team Coaching

Steve Lewis, Headteacher, Rushcliffe School Trent Academies Trust, Nottinghamshire, 2017

“I selected Charmaine to be my coach, as I liked the way she said things, and I thought she would challenge me, which was what I wanted.  She suggested a 360-degree feedback exercise, which she conducted and analysed brilliantly well. As a result, I feel that I am more proactive at work, and have learned some great strategies and techniques to help me be more productive which will pay dividends in years to come.” Life Transition and Leadership Development Coaching

Jackie Carpenter, Assistant Director Strategy, Deventio Housing Trust, Derby, 2017

“Charmaine coaching style is direct and to the point. Her feedback was high quality and helpful, better than anything I have experienced in my career so far.  The whole process felt natural. I have gained confidence and resilience, I feel that I am on the right pathway with a sense of direction and alignment. This was a good investment.”

Senior Manager IT industry, Jordon, 2019

“I have worked with Charmaine for 2 years and have gained increased confidence in my ability as a leader. As a coach, Charmaine provides opportunities for deep reflection and learning. You focus on actions and can see the progress. She provided an individualised programme and has the ability to adapt the session as needed to get the maximum benefit out of it for me. I particularly found the use of video (for interview coaching) was powerful. I could see the change as we went through the day as well as feel it. Being able to see me and have the time to reflect on it with the support and challenge of Charmaine was transformative.” Leadership Development Coaching

J Gershwin, Senior Leader, Birmingham, 2018
