ABOUT Carmen

Founding CM-CAMP was bringing to live a big dream – together with other professional coaches and mindfulness teachers we do our utmost to support YOU and other motivated human beings in your journey of rediscovering your inner beauty, strength and potential, and use it in having a happier and more fulfilled life. This is my vision about contributing together to a better world.
As a Certified Co-Active and ICF (International Coach Federation) coach and a qualified mindfulness trainer, I am specialized in working with stress, work-life balance, self-development, self-acceptance, mindful leadership development, combining mindfulness and coaching to get the best outcomes for YOU. I am specialized to work with leaders, expats, students and children. And you don’t need to be a leader at your workplace, as you are already the leader of your life.
With a BA in Public Relations and Communication and a MA in Culture, Communication and Globalization, I worked for more than 10 years in the business sector in companies as Coca-Cola and LEGO Group. I assumed various roles, from sales assistant to being leader of large teams, and in different business areas, from sales to human resources. What I liked most in all those roles was to develop people and support them in discovering their best selves. Having this great passion for supporting people in their development and seeing what coaching and mindfulness brought to me, I realized that the best gift I can give back to society is to become a coach and mindfulness trainer. I followed courses in Positive Psychology and Coaching with Compassion, and deepened my education internationally with Oasis Institute (Center for Mindfulness from University of Massachusetts), Potential Project and Coaching Training Institute from USA.
Studying, working and living in different parts of the world, being sometimes away from the family and life-long friends, needing to adapt fast to new situations and to face different challenges, which kept on coming and coming, I understood that there is no better place and time to be happy and enjoy life than here and now. I discovered and started to practice yoga and meditation in 2007 when life kicked in and I felt more balance in my life. After many years of self-discovery, inquiries, paying attention and being aware of the connection between mind and body, life events and emotions, I realized that life is an adventure that can be lived fully if approached in a mindful way.
While running my first marathon, I realized that the strength is not only in the body but also in the mind. Getting over self-doubt and self-judgement, accepting and trusting myself, made the race much easier and fulfilling. After climbing some high mountain peaks in difficult conditions, I realized how happy I can be just watching the sunrise at 6000m after 7-8 hours of intensive hiking when many times I felt I wanted to give up. That was a great analogy for my daily life! How small things can bring us great joy! Even if sometimes it requires hard work.
Even though I’m a lover of all sorts of outdoor activities – from running, hiking, skiing to kayaking and diving – I love my daily meditation and yoga practice. They are part of my daily life. They keep me balanced, calm, focused and happy in the busy and sometimes hectic business life.
I live in Aarhus, Denmark, and work locally and internationally, thanks to technology, supporting YOU and other curios and motivated human beings from all over the world to explore your unlimited potential, become your best selves, and live the life you want and deserve.

ABOUT CM CAMP

CM-CAMP was born from Carmen’s passion for nature and people. It is an acronym and, as everything in our lives, can be seen from different perspectives.
CM represents the initials of her name. But more important than this, it comes from coaching and mindfulness. If it’s only coaching, only mindfulness, or coaching and mindfulness, it’s your choice!
Your choice is also in how you “read” CAMP. If seen it it from the nature perspective, and read as a word, than CAMP is a place where you get out of your comfort zone, where you explore different aspects of yourself and your surroundings, challenging your old patterns and limitations. It’s a place where it might seem difficult to be, but wherefrom you receive great rewards if you let go of what keeps you stuck and enjoy what the present moment has to offer.
Looking at C A M P from a different perspective, and going deeper in the meaning of C A M P, each letter has a meaning:
  • C: Seeing things with clarity, approaching challenges with creativity and compassion, we have the choice to connect with our true selves instead of being prisoners of our conditioning.
  • A: Being awake, being aware of the present moment, paying attention to what is present for us right here, right now, acting instead of reacting, approaching challenges and successes in a way that serves us and the humanity in the best way.
  • M: Using the image of a mountain which is standing firm, strong and grounded, no matter if it’s stormy or sunny, if it’s warm or cold, if it has vegetation or not, we train our mind, our biggest friend and our fierce enemy in the same time, through meditation, to discover the mysteries, marvels and the magic that is within us.
  • P: Being present, persistent and patient, with our practice we have the power to find our inner peace by unlocking our unlimited potential.
CM-CAMP offers you the space and tools to rediscover your unlimited innate potential. It offers coaching sessions and mindfulness training. You can try them both, one at the time or only one of them.
CM-CAMP has a team of experienced coaches and mindfulness trainers that are specialized in the following areas:
  • Personal and professional development
  • Team and group coaching
  • Leadership coaching
  • Mindful leadership
  • Students and teenagers coaching
  • Mindfulness for children and teenagers
  • Mindfulness for students
  • Stress and work-life balance coaching
  • Personal and professional transition – changing career, moving into a new life stage, divorce, retirement, expatriation
  • Transition from childhood to adulthood, motherhood
  • Mindful parenting
  • Death of a loved one
  • The journey of having a child
  • Transgender coaching
  • Addictions (including food, drugs, smoking etc)
