Based in South Essex, Carole is passionate about helping people and companies to reach their full potential and has developed Think Success UK to further use her talents as a therapist, trainer, coach and consultant. Think Success UK will enhance the ability of leaders and enable them to use the resources Carole herself has utilised over the years.
She has worked in different areas of education, was Headteacher of a Special School in Essex, which became “Outstanding” (Ofsted 2010), and spent two and a half years as Chair and Collaborative Officer for the Essex Special Schools’ Headteachers’ Association, working as their link with the County Council, parents’ groups and commissioning committees.
Taking over a failing Special School as Headteacher in 2004 was a huge challenge. The school had been judged as having Serious Weaknesses and staff moral was extremely low. It was an incredible journey for my team and I but we were extremely proud of our open, welcoming and very successful school. It transformed into a place where pupils, staff and parents enjoyed spending time and felt happy to be part of. What we did worked because of the way of being we achieved
Carole trained as a Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnosis with Dr Richard Bandler and has taken part in further training with John La Valle, Michael Neil, Eric Robbie, Paul McKenna, Dr Stephen and Ronald Ruden, Kevin Laye and Anne Jirsch. She has successfully used her natural ability as a coach and a trainer to help numerous children, their parents, education staff and leaders in the world of business and sales.
I believe that people can achieve success in their professional and personal life through becoming more emotionally competent. There is an intrinsic link between success, positivity and happiness.
As Albert Schweitzer said …
… Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful …
Carole’s 1 to 1 work with clients suffering from sever anxieties, phobias and the results of trauma is particularly successful and and has seen rapid and lasting positive results. From clearing the residue of past experiences to gaining freedom from the debilitating affects of phobias, she has enabled her clients to go on to lead happy, successful lives.
I love my work as a therapist. Its an extremely privileged position to be in – experiencing clients walking into my office, heads bowed, suffering or trapped, to watch that look of “Wow” when they leave, heads up, smiles on their face. I give thanks every day for the privilege of of my work.
Carole has brought up three children as a single parent, while studying and gaining a degree in education as a mature student. She spent time successfully running a design business and beat cancer In 1984. She has been a positive inspiration to a great many people.
