Charmaine has equipped me with the tools to maintain the ethical and values-led professionalism that feels authentic to me and I return to these often when I have a situation or decision to wrangle with. I have spent a lot of time over the years apologising for myself, not feeling good-enough, worrying how I will be perceived, liked, not liked or valued. I now feel liberated from those negative perceptions and confident to articulate myself and make decisions grounded in the core values that I have set as my standard – my non-negotiables. I thought coaching would lead me to chase opportunities, instead it has led me to say ‘no’. To say ‘no’ to things that don’t serve me and the boundaries I have set for myself or the values I hold as important. For this (once was) ‘yes’ person that has been powerful and transformational. I highly recommend coaching…


I started my coaching journey with Charmaine at a time when I was looking to explore my longer term career options but gained so much more. Charmaine created a safe space where I felt comfortable and confident to share my vulnerabilities, aspirations and whole self. This led to transformational change for me personally and professionally. I achieved my longest term goal half way through our coaching, achieved positive financial gains, but most significantly learnt how to set boundaries for myself and others. There has also been humour, fun and shared reflections along the way.


Personable, clear, safe, comfortable environment to explore plans, wishes or desires and created a platform to discuss and gain clarity.

The quality of the coaching has been wonderful and has helped me to grow in so many ways. Charmaine was incredibly knowledgable in many areas, bringing tasks from various theories for me to try within the remit of my goal and research further into to develop myself even further. I instantly felt that I was able to build a strong and trusting relationship with Charmaine that helped me to realise my goal quickly, productively and also reflect on the progress made. I feel that the coaching has unleashed a confidence from within I didn’t know I had, or was capable of developing, and for that I am truly grateful.

Great! Charmaine was very warm and open minded, and the session did not feel judgmental. It felt guided by my own targets or thought processes rather than steered.

Excellent quality coaching. The coach was both professional and friendly and ensured the session remained focused on my goals.

Charmaine is incredibly talented, knowledgeable and respectful as a coach. She is easy to relate to and supportive yet committed to providing the required challenge to facilitate personal and team growth. Charmaine has  high standards of integrity and is open and transparent in the way she works. I have valued the coaching sessions with Charmaine and feel that Charmaine has engaged openly wanting to learn and understand fully about me as an individual and professional and also part of the team. I am thankful that I have had the opportunity to engage in 1:1 and team coaching with Charmaine and feel that is has been and experience which has ignited positive transformations both for me as a professional individually but also for our team. Charmaine offers something truly special.


It has been incredibly useful to work with Charmaine during a time when the team has really had to take a look at their individual roles and responsibilities. The sessions that have been delivered have allowed us to become stronger and have encouraged us to create and share our views on where to take the school next. We have been able to do this due to the sensitive and thought provoking activities and sessions that Charmaine has planned and delivered. I have felt that during out team sessions we have been able to talk candidly in a safe environment that Charmaine has been able to maintain throughout.
