ABOUT CAROLYNE CROWE
My coaching journey began several years ago when I was working as an equine veterinary surgeon. I really enjoyed my clinical work but I knew I had skills that I wasn’t using. Having gone into the profession with a primary interest in animals, I had become more and more interested in the people I met and understanding what drove their expectations and behaviours.
My husband is also a vet, and between us not only have we lost ten friends and colleagues to suicide, but we weren’t thriving either at work or personally or both. These sobering (but sadly all too common) experiences awoke in me a determination to do something positive for the brilliant people working so hard in the profession that I love.
I also have two children, so I understand the challenges many people face on a daily basis - juggling the children, work and, well quite frankly, life! None of us are super-human and yet it's easy to feel we 'should' be doing so much more than we are… but really should we? I know there are times when you can feel like you're the only person struggling to meet the high standards you set yourself; that everyone else seems to be coping, to be fitting it all in and why can’t you…
If this strikes a chord with you, know that you're not alone in feeling this way, and more importantly, that I can help.
GAIN CLARITY, CREATE OPTIONS
My Diploma in Personal Performance Coaching (with Distinction) along with my experiences as a vet, wife, mother and coach enable me to help professionals just like you to gain clarity, create options and open up real choices. I am a CIPD Accredited Trainer in Wellbeing and Stress Management, an Accredited Resilience Trainer for both individuals and managers and a Master Trainer in DISC Behavioural Profiling. I use DISC behavioural profiling to improve self-awareness, enhance how you communicate with colleagues, your boss, your team and your family by gaining a better understanding of your own innate style and preferences.
COACH, MENTOR, SPEAKER, RESEARCHER
I am an Honorary Lecturer of the University of Liverpool and I also lecture the undergraduates at Liverpool University and the Royal Veterinary College.
I am a workplace health and wellbeing specialist. Completing my Master's degree in 2016 and receiving the prize for academic excellence from the University of Nottingham Medical School in Workplace Health and Wellbeing fuelled my passion for working with others within the workplace to address one of the greatest risks to everyone's health… workplace stress.
DETERMINED, AWARD WINNING
I love to challenge myself in all aspects of my life and in April 2017 I took on the challenge of running ten marathons in ten days around the British Isles to raise money for Brooke animal welfare charity. Not bad as I only ran my first marathon in September 2016!
I'm very proud and delighted to have been awarded the prestigious Life Coach of the Year award in 2015 at the International Coaching Awards. I was a finalist in the Women In Business award in 2016 and I was awarded Fellowship of the Coaching Academy in 2016.
I am passionate about working with professionals, people who have already achieved but may be at a stage either personally or professionally (or both!) and think… is this it? Those that may have focused on only a few elements of their life through necessity, drive and desire only to realise they have neglected other really important parts of both themselves and their lives, those that are at a crossroads or those that just want to make some tweaks to enhance what they are already doing, so they can be the person they want to be, do the things they want to do and lead the life they want to lead each and every day.
