"But today the way I play the game has got to change, oh yeah
Now I'm gonna get myself happy
I think there's something you should know
I think it's time I stopped the show
There's something deep inside of me
There's someone I forgot to be"

Freedom 90, George Michael

My clients who have been on this journey started to belief in themselves again.
They started to feel hope and more joy. They dared to go on a new adventure once they did the work and changed their situation.
They dared to dream again and they made a new start.
They started to heal and they learned how to overcome life hurdles.

My own potion of mentoring and coaching combines kindness, intuition and improvisation with a dash of humour and a spoonful of practical woo.

When we work together, it's my priority to provide you with a safe cocoon so you can unravel and re-build. So you can recover and heal.

testimonial-madelonChristel, you are a beautiful woman. You inspire, motivate and you gave me an a-ha moment with a star. And that star shone bright in my world for the rest of the day. It seems that nothing is the same any longer. I want to thank you for this lovely gift you gave me today.

testimonial-ozlemChristel is a wise woman who listens with her whole heart. She intuitively identified my stressful approach to exercise and the impact it was having on my overall health and wellbeing. I praise Christel for teaching me the importance of hormonal balance for women. Thank you Christel – you opened a whole new doorway to my awareness and understanding of women’s wellbeing.

Wandering through my past fears and analysing my dreams, I discovered a new me. I gained power to confront myself, the world and my relationships with a different conscience. Knowing that we can change so much within ourselves with some simple tools, is very powerful. It can be hard to go within, but it's certainly worth it. Christel's guidance made it possible to reach the answers within me.

testimonial-lemanI met Christel when I was going through a  hard time in every aspects of my life. Christel coached me through a big life transition and I couldn't have managed these changes without her help. I can  say that I am in a totally different place right now and I wouldn't be where I am now without her help. She has been incredibly supportive, compassionate, non-judgemental and always with creative ideas. I am calmer and more at peace with myself. Christel has been a wonderful influence in my life.

testimonial-nikkiCoaching with Christel is fun, therapeutic and enlightening. My sessions with her have helped me navigate a period of change in my life and become more self aware and at peace with who I am. This made me feel more comfortable in my skin and in my relationships in work and outside. She is sensitive, honest, authentic, non judgemental and helps you tease out the person within. Her approach not only helps you to examine yourself as a person but also find ways to cope with life situations in a real and practical manner.

testimonial-alisonChristel is an incredible, intuitive coach and mentor, and I don't say that lightly. She is wise, smart, patient and utterly supportive, providing the kind of guidance to her clients that helps them change their lives for the better. She specialises in helping people spot, deal with and heal from toxic relationships, tailoring her support to meet the needs of each individual, and in innovative ways too. Her latest Instant Coach voice clip service, which provides access to her coaching for those in need of quick help in particularly tough times, is a brilliant example. If you're looking for a phenomenal coach to help you navigate, heal and move forward from a toxic relationship, Christel is most definitely your woman and I couldn't recommend her highly enough.
