Don't take my word for it, see what people who have worked with me say........
Carrie's approach is to listen but not to allow one to wallow in self-pity....
Carrie started coaching me about ten years ago. She came very highly recommended and entered my life when I was going through a particularly traumatic time. I started weekly sessions with Carrie and after getting me through the first year, we worked together on building my confidence and self belief that had been shattered by a number of people in my life over the years. Ten years later, Carrie and I still have sessions as and when I need them.
Carrie’s approach to coaching is to listen but not to allow one to wallow in self pity. She has given me a vast number of tools that I can draw on, no matter what situation I find myself in. The most powerful of these being empowering beliefs. Some issues we dealt with were extremely confronting and took a few sessions to get through but we got through them and I was much better for it.
Carrie has truly transformed my life. She has somehow managed to push the re set button for me and I am and will remain very grateful to her for this.
Like most guys, my husband did not believe in coaching and felt that it was not something he would ever try. He hit a challenging patch in his life and after a certain amount of persuasion; he decided to speak to Carrie. Like me, she addressed the issues he was going through and never once pushed him to continue further sessions. I knew she really helped him as I did not only see the change in him but also noticed him wanting to have more sessions with her when he was troubled about something.
For those of you who are considering life coaching with Carrie, I would say, ‘Go For It. Today’. You will not regret it and you owe it to yourself. It is absolutely essential that you invest in yourself and in order to take the next step forward, you need to be able to break away from the chains that are holding you back. Carrie has the ability to help you unlock this fantastic life you have ahead of you. I am living proof of her work. So please, give yourself the opportunity to become a self confident, wonderful person that you are.

From the moment I first spoke to Carrie I felt safe and supported....
I wish to remain anonymous due to the traumatic issues I needed help with but wanted to let anyone who is considering being counseled by Carrie how supportive and encouraging she is. I was in a mess when I first spoke to Carrie, at a total loss, I had tried counselling before but I don't connect easily with people. With Carrie I felt such warmth and compassion I felt respected for who I am, I didn't have to pretend with her and was able to open up. She is very patient and I felt she really understood my issues. Some of the exercises were quite scary, like "talking" to my long dead partner, but I never felt pressured and knew that she was there for me. I can't describe the relief i felt. It was amazing. The result is I haven't had a panic attack for the last six months and feel so much better about myself I am starting to apply for jobs. D.C
Carrie helped me market myself cost effectively.....
When I first started my coaching with Carrie, I was enthusiastic and knew I wanted to change people’s lives for the better but was pretty clueless about how to find clients to help in the first place – especially as I had a limited advertising budget.
As well as helping me to market myself cost effectively, Carrie also helped me to identify self limiting beliefs that were holding me back and, when required, provided challenges to help me move out of my comfort zone, and supported and encouraged me when I needed that too.
From having a handful of clients and little experience in public speaking, I now have several one to one clients, run regular workshops, have created a programme of downloadable products and through effective networking, I have established several profitable strategic alliances and joint ventures. I have also recently been approached by a production company to make a short film for a potential series of documentaries for a major television channel!
I couldn’t have done it without Carrie and would highly recommend her to anybody wanting to make a success out of their small business. Thank you Carrie!

Carrie's style is challenging and inspiring...
"Carrie's Coaching has made a massive difference in my life by not only identifying and setting goals but keeping me on track and motivated enough to achieve them. Particularly, Carrie's style is challenging and inspiring, even when I didn't think I could do any more than I was doing. Before coaching, I had an abject nervous aversion to networking. Now, having dealt with these negative beliefs through the coaching and committing myself to doing my action steps I look forward to meeting people and telling them about the services I offer with confidence. Sometime I didn't feel I could do it but Carrie always encouraged me to draw from my own strength within which I did and the results have been great: I now have a "new" wardrobe which is really a set of clothes I can fit into again after having lost weight; my ministery is reaching more people in the community than I was achieving before and I'm receiving leads and interest for my own coaching services. I am no longer held back by fear of other people's opinions and am very much aware of how I project on to any given situation, recognising that my perception is so often not the same as others and this understanding alone has brought calm to various relationships, not just my own but when I introduct this to others it causes them to take a step back and not get so caught up in their own views. I have secured a coaching contract which just a few months ago seemed like just a huge wish but it is now a reality. I'm amazed. The whole coaching experience has been very enilghtening, challenging, inspiring and a vehicle for me to achieve my goals and to live the rest of my life in the same vein. If anyone is considering being coached by Carrie I would say "go for it, it's well worth it as long as you take responsiblity for your actions and are serious about making the changes you want to see in your life." Finally, saying "thank you Carrie" doesn't seem enough. So much of my life has changed and I am absolutely glowing with life. I really appreciate your support and motivation even on the days when I didn't think it was going to happen. All the best and many blessings for your future"

Carrie's style is very supportive yet challenging...
"I started working with Carrie when I began the New Insights Coach training program. I already felt that I had what is takes to be a good coach but I knew that there was more to it than just the coaching skills. I realised that I needed to learn how to run a business and to understand how to market and sell myself if I was to achieve my dream. Working with Carrie has not only allowed me to develop the skills that I needed in marketing and sales, along with the confidence to use them, but has also shown me that I can do better than being a good coach, that I can be (and already am) a great one. As a result I now have a clearer and brighter picture of my future. Carries style is very supportive, giving plenty of praise for my achievements and at the same time always challenging me to do that bit more, to achieve more and to overcome the next obstacle. This has enabled me to grow and develop in ways that I frankly could not have imagined when I started this programme. On top of all that, the sessions are fun! Some of the time the exercises are challenging and tiring but Carrie has a sense of humour and uses it to make some of the harder bits easier to deal with."
The timing of your challenges has been exquisite...
"The exercise of the 5 supporting references for the empowering beliefs really makes you focus on what you already have in the locker and that you really do have so much more in your life which is good. In fact you already have it all and the only thing to do going forward is to find something you love and what you want your life to be about. Is it really as simple as focus? that's it the whole deal?I do know that what ever happens in my life from now on I'm going to be so much happier so much more centered, I've really changed right in the core of me. Thank you so much Carrie for the contribution you have made. The timing of your challenges have been exquisite, you waited for the perfect moment to introduce the bullshit alarm. I am sure you found it difficult not to do so earlier but would I have been ready? You really are an incredible coach I am so grateful it's you, in the words of the bond song nobody does it better, you are a gem among gems. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. yours in gratitude
"Working with Carrie has been very powerful, enlightening and an absolute pleasure.....
Her dedication and candor have most definitely helped me on the path to being the very best that I can be and I look forward to continuing to work with her for the foreseeable future. My Marketing strategy has detail that I never would have imagined and the focus and results have been amazing”
E Callaghan Trainee Coach
Carrie's skill in clearly explaining what is involved in Marketing our business effectively has enabled us to loose the fear we had of "getting ourselves out there". The step by step process we went through has produced a Marketing strategy that we have been able to implement from day one.
From a position of no new clients for the previous 3 months we increased our sales by 10% in just 8 weeks and are assured of continued growth. Thankyou Carrie
I feel a sense of trust in you...
“I have to congratulate you on the marvellous job you did on Monday, you really got me in the state where I said what I thought trusting that it was absolutely the right thing to do and not fear doing so. I feel a sense of trust in you which I believe is excellent in our coach/client relationship. “

I have now doubled my earnings....
“Thank you for pushing me, I never thought it would be possible to achieve the income I have so soon. I have now doubled my earnings and have clients lined up, it is an amazing feeling.”
D Marchant Tutor
“I am a business owner and I can honestly say that the knock on effects of being coached has been incredible....
I am happier so my employees are happier. Because they are happier they are more productive. My clients notice the happy environment, so enjoy doing business with my company, and so spend more! Now my business has a clearly defined set of goals and I know how I am going to get there, I see what I must do for my business to grow, in business and life if you are not growing you are shrinking. It is my belief that the investment I made in my self development has paid back 10 fold and will continue to keep on paying for years to come”
