“Charley’s approach is so wonderful, practical and really challenges us to think very differently. Charley really has something that makes her training so unique and special.”

EA – Board Director, Banking Sector

“Taking Charley’s Master Your Self-Leadership Mentoring Program helped me rethink how I view my professional and private life and to develop a positive action plan to move forward with a clear line of sight of what I’d like to achieve in both. I started from a place of significant self-doubt and soon realised I had forgotten who I truly am, my purpose in life, my achievements and successes to date and more importantly, how much more I want to contribute and live boldly. The modular worksheets and exercises were very thought provoking and sometimes challenging.

I always felt Charley provided a very safe space to really open up about my true thoughts and feelings. While this was difficult at times for me, Charley’s support, encouragement and clever questioning helped me enormously and this has had a huge impact on how I now think about and deal with situations in my life.

I am incredibly grateful to Charley for helping me to change my mindset and to find my true self again. I now live in a genuinely more positive frame of mind and my confidence in work and in myself have improved greatly.”Jenny L, Financial Services Management

“I feel heard and respected by Charley, as she has great compassion and consideration for people.  She is the essence of ethical, she brings both her head and her heart to the discussion and Charley focuses on empowering me to change my thinking, resulting in sustained changed behaviours”. 

MO'R Coach

“I had first heard Charley lecture in 2016 – I found her explanations made sense and she was so easy to listen to. Over the years I received her newsletters, it wasn’t until I saw her Master Your Self-Leadership Mentoring Program I decided to get in touch. At that time, I was in a very difficult working environment and could not see a way forward. At the beginning of our engagement, I was not in a good space to discuss my job and work environment with a ‘stranger’. I was being given ‘homework,’ – and I was in no mood for ‘homework’! Even though I had signed up for her guidance and advice, I was not very receptive to either listening or doing the inner work. This changed. Charley was very patient with me – I was not a good timekeeper, I dragged my feet and did the least amount of ‘homework’ I have ever done in my life, as it was very subjective!

But, Charley was there for me, not for herself! She listened between the lines. She spoke to me in the way I needed her to get through to me – intuitively, practically and non-academically. By the end of the program, I had begun to see and believe that I do have potential and I could see a way forward. Charley’s patience, listening skills, her vast experience and her conversational skills played a big part in me moving out of the dark place I was in to have the confidence to believe in myself and my potential. The program wasn’t all about me in the work environment – it was bigger than that. It was about Me as a whole person, managing MY working skills, MY thinking skills and MY life confidence skills. Thanks Charley.”

MA - Director

“I am eternally grateful to Charley for the depth of her wisdom, her intuitiveness and her very subtle spirituality which brings an extra dimension to her work with me.  Our work is ongoing, a journey of discovery for me as I enter a new phase in my life.  I want to make some really important changes and need some direction and guidance.  Life is hard and Charley guides me, challenges me and instinctively knows when to ‘mind’ me and to look out for me.  This process is not in the least prescriptive, it is more holistic and covers the broader purpose of my life which I find invigorating, exciting and terrifying in equal measure.  Charley’s expertise and openness have guided me towards realising new goals and ambitions which I feel more comfortable and confident to explore.
