Recent 1-1 Coaching Success Stories
Read what clients have said about their experience of working with Charlène.
Having known Charlène in her previous vocation in law, I was excited to partner with her on this journey knowing that she would bring trust, empathy but also her rigor in getting to the detail, science, and providing appropriate and consistent advice. She has a great amount of credibility and isn’t afraid to challenge the norms as you think they are. Very valuable coaching that I would like to continue.
Yannick Davey, Global Account Executive APAC at Microsoft
Charlene is a true expert in her field. As a business coach, she takes the time to get to know her clients and uses her vast set of tools and experience to help guide them in their business. She also has an excellent understanding of the legal profession so her advice is relevant and very useful for attorneys. She understands the time constraints attorneys face and works to set goals that are attainable but still show results. I highly recommend Charlene for any attorney looking for business guidance.
Mark Grzymala, Construction Attorney and Principal at Grzymala Law Offices
I have been working with Charlène Gisèle Bourliout as an executive coach for a little over 4 months now. But in that very short time, I have been able to make significant progress in both my personal and professional life by working with her holistic yet tailored approach to executive coaching. We have worked together to hone in on the main roadblocks that have been standing between me and my various goals; and worked with laser focus to eliminate them. She has worked with me to build a solid foundation for high performance work – including an emphasis on both physical and mental health. In just these few months, I have seen the difference in my effectiveness at work, and it has been noticed by my staff and colleagues as well. I cannot recommend Charlène enough and working with her has been well worth the investment.
Jeffrey Possinger, Managing Member at Possinger Law Group
When I first started Charlene’s coaching program, I had very hopes and expectations but I thought I had no resources to seek mindfulness. Charlene’s program far exceeded my expectations and has been a real game changer. Week by week, I’ve been guided through every step whilst gaining more and more self awareness and achieving the goals we set. Coming from tennis, it now seems obvious that coaching should be a necessary part of our work life. I’m very grateful and enthusiastically recommend Charlene as a coach and amazing professional.
Giovanni Valentini, Partner Lawyer at gunnercooke LLP
Charlène has been an incredible coach for me – both personally and professionally! Her approach to coaching is genuine and impactful – I take away so many actionable tips from every single conversation we have. She constantly motivates me to do better while prioritizing my health and wellness to maximize my performance. The fact that she’s had a demanding corporate career and gone through very similar experiences means her guidance is much more relatable and she GETS it without being overly preachy. Her workshops have been a great way to stay connected between sessions and learn from her knowledge.
I always feel better after a conversation with her and highly recommend anyone work with her if they are looking to increase their performance and reduce burnout.
Gabi Slemer, CFA, CEO & Founder of Finasana, Former Wall Street Investor
Let’s start by saying I am not an easy gig. Grumpy, opinionated, world weary and a world class cynic. Charlene has opened my eyes to so many possibilities. She is insightful, motivating, calming, kind and ever so slightly scary all at the same time. Mutual accountability at all times. She understands the pressures that exist in the world of Professional Services Firms totally. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any professional heading towards frazzle-land or one wanting a wise and empathetic guiding hand to help you flourish. Great value for the time invested.
David Conlan, Tax Director at Galloways Accounting
Working with Charlene has been a great experience. As my coach, she is knowledgeable, insightful, reflective, and most importantly I feel like she understands me. She is patient and has an elegant communication style, explaining complex ideas in a way that I am able to grasp, no matter how many times I ask her. Her techniques at times have been very powerful, which have allowed me to discover new insights into myself. I have enjoyed how her approach is holistic, looking at all aspects of my life and helping them to align with my desired goals.
Charlene is persistent in holding me accountable for my actions. I have at times tried to avoid dealing with certain aspects of my life but Charlene has gently been able to bring me back to a place where I am aligned to confront them. If you are looking for a coach, someone who is supportive, someone to give you clarity, someone you can place your hope in, who is singing your corner and who actually cares about your life, then Charlene is the coach for you and I couldn’t recommend her more highly.
Kevin Haley, Co-founder of Aberrant Architecture, a multi-award winning collaborative studio of designers, makers and thinkers
Charlène is a rare coach indeed, so knowledgeable on everything well being related, yet also a former corporate animal like myself so she knows how to translate the “hippy” stuff into my language, and all delivered through her beautifully calming French tones.
Chris Mayo, Legal Recruiter at Legal Capital Partners Ltd.
I felt I knew about coaching and mentoring, having been a people manager for many years, so have always been a little dubious of an Executive coach. Joining Charlène’s Executive coaching programme following a significant life event, I quickly realised I could not have been more wrong. Working closely, we quickly uncovered issues that were deeply rooted in my subconscious but affecting my everyday decisions. I became much more aware of my own conscious guiding ‘memorandum’, and as much as we focused on learning, we worked on unlearning too some of those engrained behaviours and reactions.
Charlène, in my opinion, is one of the most highly skilled people I have come across in how she has mastered communication. She has taught me both skills and methods in verbal and non verbal cues, realigned my way of approaching both situations and people, enabling a much deeper understanding of myself. I recommend Charlène on the highest level possible. She should absolutely be part of your formula for success and development. My only regret is that I didn’t meet her sooner.
Jonathan Frostick, Interim Director – Financial Services
Charlene is a pleasure to work with and one of the most positive people I ever met. Our sessions together helped me declutter and feel better within a few days. As a busy entrepreneur, it’s crucial to invest time in myself, and I’m really glad I did that through working with Charlene. The deep work that we did helped me address some subconscious issues from the past and made my decision-making process in the present much better. Thank you!
Elena Seranova, Ph.D., Serial Entrepreneur, Business Mentor and Founder of NMN Bio
After four months of weekly coaching with Charlène on Mind, Body and Spirit, I can consciously state that her holistic approach is the most contemporary form of coaching I’ve experienced, in my opinion the only one aligned with the challenges that today’s world presents.
Guglielmo Notarbartolo di Villarosa, Head of Private Equity & Venture Capital
Charlene and I met just over six months ago in an incredibly nourishing experience in Italy. At this time I was going through a deep process of understanding my body, the food I ate and how I could take ownership of my health. It was perfect timing, and a great connection from the first moment. Every session after has been excitingly novel, insightful and elevating leaving something new and transformative after every session. She is a great guide, who through kindness and wisdom helps restore harmony and supports the creation of what works best for you with all the available resources. Couldn’t have asked for a better coach to accompany me through this phase.
Almudena Bentin, Co-Founder at Inhala Soulwear & Eco-nnect
My dream is that one day everyone will have a health coach, and no one will have to suffer disease and debilitating health problems. We are all entitled and intended to live happy, thriving, long lives! The only way we can possibly do this is by helping each other. These days and especially in western society, we are so quick to invest in so many aspects of lives, from the house we live in, to the car we drive and the schools we choose for our children, but when it comes to our own health and wellness why is it we are so reluctant ?? Our health IS our only wealth, and if our health is optimal, we are far more likely to achieve our life goals, not to mention be the person we want to be for those closest to us. I have a wonderful support network, a loving husband, family and lovely friends, but having a health coach is just that little bit more. It’s somebody in your inner circle who is out of your inner circle. Somebody who is accountable for only you.
As a breast and lung cancer survivor if there is one thing I have learnt it is that self care and self love is where it starts and where it all flows from … Charlène is wonderfully gentle and calming. So knowledgeable and always there to help on the other end of an email.
She is always cheering me on, and is such a kind, loving, empathetic coach, but what I most love about her is her innate ability to see beyond what you are saying, and find those inner parts of you that really need healing. She is honest and authentic in what she believes, and has a genuine love and passion for what she does; and a love for her clients that really shows. She has become a great friend to me and a wonderful safe space away from my busy life to off load, to release and let go. She helps me with everything from nutrition and exercise to deep emotional self exploration, yet she simplifies it for me, which as a busy mother of five is essential! Her experiences and spiritual travels and teachings, and her passion are so apparent in all that she does. l get so excited about our sessions together, and each time I know I’m moving a step further towards being that version of myself I aspire to be. She also never ceases to remind me of how far I have already come! Studies actually show that we are 95% more likely to stick to our health goals if we have an accountability partner.
It’s worked for me and I couldn’t recommend Charlène and her team highly enough! 💚
Working with Charlene over the last few months has been incredible in so many ways. Not only has Charlene provided excellent guidance and information as I start my own business, but is also a tremendous source of knowledge, empathy, curiosity, motivation and kindness as I work on my own health and well-being journey. Charlene is a one of a kind coach and I would highly recommend working with her!
