Saraha D.'s review on Aug 03, 2020

My life was a mess. Without Charlena, I am not sure what would have happened. She never gave up on me. She believed in me. Thank you!

Rebecca D.'s review on Jul 31, 2020

A year ago, my husband and I went to see Charlena to help us with our parenting. We are parents of a teen and a child on the Autism Spectrum. We felt we were not coping as parents, feeling pulled in all directions. Her approach to coaching us involved our whole family, not just us. She made us feel at ease. She moved our family in the direction of success. She helped us find our strengths and use them to benefit us. In our opinion, she went over and above what we ever expected we could accomplish with a life coach. She continues to provide us with outstanding coaching sessions as our needs arise and we feel very lucky to have crossed paths with her.... Oh and Cedar, the service/therapy dog is fantastic. Having her present for our sessions has been so healing for our family.

Hi Rebecca. Thank you for this great review. It's been an absolute pleasure working with you all. The love that you all share as a family is just outstanding. Beautiful indeed. I am glad to hear the Cedar's presence in sessions was useful in your process. She truly is a gentle spirit to have around when discussing hard content. I expect great things in your family's future. Keep in touch!

Casey M.'s review on Jul 30, 2020

I met Charlena at my work health&wellness week a couple of years ago. After a brief discussion with her, I decided to try some therapy with her for my depression. I was grieving the death of my son. I am so glad I connected with her. She was able to help me through the process. She has a very compassionate, she is easy to speak with and offers encouragement when needed. Her skills are absolutely amazing. I have seen other therapists in my teens and early adult years, but Charlena is the best. I have no reservations about referring others to her. I know they will be in excellent hands. Even in my lowest moment, she was able to provide to me a sense of relief, even in her unspoken word.

Charlie S.'s review on Jul 30, 2020

Charlena has been my life coach for many years now. When I first started with her, she showed me how to reach my goals and make the necessary changes to sustain over the long haul. I was at that time in need of improving my relationships with family and friends, but also needed help managing my stress and anxiety. I completed a course of sessions with her which provided me the skillset I needed to make the desirable changes. Was it work.... Yes! Absolutely. She expected me to work for the change, she made me accountable for my actions. I needed this and after all it is why I hired a life coach. Doing it myself wasn't working. A few years ago, I decided to start up a business. I immediately sought out her services again to help me set reasonable goals to be able to succeed. She has been instrumental in supporting me to make difficult business decisions that allow the outcome to meet my needs. If you are looking for a coach or therapist who won't give up on you, will NOT judge you and works as hard for you as you are for yourself, then look no further. She is a excellent person who can deliver you the services you are looking for with empathy. You want results... this is your person

Michelle C.'s review on May 20, 2020

Working with Charlena has been an incredible experience. She is an excellent listener and gave unique ways to view the situations I was in. At first I had no idea what I was aiming for, except to find a new path. Charlena has helped me manage the stress of the unknown, conquer my lack of confidence and believe in the tomorrow. With her extreme positivity and un-judgemental attitude, it makes talking to her an easygoing experience all the time. Thank you for all the advice, and helping me ease into my new life, ready to face new adventures.

Michelle, I am so proud of your accomplishments. I expect you will go far with all the hard work you have done to find your path

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
I try to keep my pricing simple and are based on sessions up to 60 minutes. Coaching: £80/session Therapy: £50/session Clients whom choose to purchase a block of 10 sessions in advance, receive a 10% discount. If you discontinue my services before the 10 sessions, refunds are pro rated and given based on regular session rates. Short notice cancels or no shows carries a charge equal to a regular session rate unless I am able to schedule another client in for that time, then no charge will apply. To make a payment, I will send you an invoice from Paypal the morning of your session and payment should be made prior to entering into the session room.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
Clients looking at seeking out my services will be asked to have a pre-screening zoom call (15 minutes). If proceeding with my services, then the following will need to be completed before the first session: 1. Provide me with an email to set up your online account with me. 2. Log into my site and set up their password and complete any intake forms I require (based on which services you are utilizing). 3. Book your intake session. While this can take up to 90 minutes in length, it is charged as a 60 minute session.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
I hold 22 different diplomas ranging from hands on modalities to different kinds of talk therapies/coaching. The most relevant are: - Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) - Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) - Psychotherapy - Acceptance and Commitment Therapy -Child & Adolescent Counseling - Advance Psychodynamic Therapy - Chronic Pain Management Counseling - Therapeutic Life Coach - Empowerment Life Coaching - Marketing Coach - Nutritionist for all stages of life & Advance Master Herbalist - Aromatherapist I am always seeking to stay up-to-date in the latest techniques and am currently studying: - Laughter Therapy - Entrepreneurship/Business Coaching - Child, Adolescent and Parenting Coach
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
I have only one tip. The tip is that while trying to find a coach/therapist can feel overwhelming, choosing the one that you feel most safe and comfortable with should be your number one priority. Remember coaching/therapy isn't just about sharing your issues/concerns/problems, it is about discovery of one's self. A good coach/therapist will challenge their clients and take them out of their comfort zones. Having a coach/therapist you can trust to take you to a place of vulnerability is a must. All the different techniques they offer won't do you any good unless you truly have a solid working relationship with your coach/therapist.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
My opinion on this is that you should create your own set of questions that are pertaining to your individual circumstances or concerns/apprehensions. No question is too silly, too big or too embarrassing to ask. Coaches and Therapists welcome all sorts of questions and understand the importance of the client being absolutely sure they are understood.
What are some good examples of past customers?
All my clients are great examples. I hesitate to answer this question as I do not feel the successes of my clients come from me directly. I am just the person whom "shows" my client the different doors available to them. The real work comes from within them. I view all my clients as individuals with a unique "Book of Life" for them. As a result, I celebrate with my clients all successes along the way, not just the end result. I encourage my clients to make life long changes and to continue their growth even after our relationship ends.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
I have worked with clients for 20+ years. In this time, I have seen a large amount of clients manage/improve or eliminate their symptoms of distress, depression, low self esteem, chronic pain and many other issues and go on to continue to fulfill and enrich their life as they transition through the different phases of their life. While coaching/therapy might be time limited, empowerment and life growth is life long. To place a measurement of success is like thinking you have learned all you are going to learn. This is not true, we are designed to be life learners.
How did you first get into this line of work?
At a very young age, I have been interested in the growth of the human mind, different cultural norms and family dynamics. In my teens, I experienced trauma. I really didn't work through that until later in my life but while working at discovering myself, I discovered how to use my life experience to help others. I went on to have a family whom were very supportive in my success, my "cheer" team. My family taught me a huge amount of valuable information that no text book could ever compare to. Over the years, my passion to help others create their own life story has grown. I recognize how my family, co-workers and clients have played such an instrumental role in the coach/therapist I am today. I continue to be inspired by my clients strengths within themselves.
