What other courageous women say about working with Carmen:
Helene Badini Community Mobilization Adviser, UNAIDS, Dakar, Senegal
I had the opportunity to benefit from Carmen’s coaching and it was amazing to have her as my coach. With her professionalism, combined with her patience, kindness and simplicity, she supported me to reach my goal. I really feel better and happy to continue my work while taking care of myself and others. I learned a lot with her, especially how to say No and not feel guilty, how to balance the work and the personal life. I wish that other colleagues and friends in need of coaching will get a chance to benefit from her experience. Thank you, Carmen, for the great experience.
Sarah Manion Health Coach, UK
Carmen has been my coach for the last 6 months or so and it has been a wonderful experience. I felt comfortable talking to Carmen from the outset and she skillfully challenged me while remaining compassionate and supportive. Carmen has helped me recognise and utilise my strengths and values and I have grown in confidence throughout the time we have been working together. I am now more connected with myself and what is important to me and I have learnt many techniques to support me in making decisions and discovering the possibilities open to me in my life. I would definitely recommend Carmen as a coach.
Malo Staschau Teacher, Germany & Denmark
For the past 6 months I have had coaching sessions with Carmen. It has been a great experience and I have learned so much about myself, my values and goals in life. I quickly felt comfortable talking to Carmen and she is a very patient, caring and professional coach. I look into the future with confidence knowing I have possibilities to make new choices and changes in my everyday life.I would not hesitate to recommend Carmen as a coach to anyone who is open for a new perspective of life.
Sherry-Lynne Kirschner Teacher, Canada
I have been fortunate to have Carmen as my coach from November 2016 to the present. She is a very kind and sensitive teacher who is able to use her education, skills and diverse background experience to establish and maintain a trusting relationship in an authentic way. As I proceeded through our sessions together, I noticed how she has an intuitive sense of when to inspire growth and forward movement and when to hold space and offer more of a supportive role. She not only provided and taught me a plethora of useful techniques but also was able to enrich and deepen strategies that have proven successful for me in the past. I was constantly amazed at her ability to not only navigate but also shift my emotional storms, always with the upmost grace and presence. I highly recommend working with Carmen. She is truly a gift!
Marcela Izaguirre Innovation Consultant, Mexico
It was quite an adventure what I have experienced during my coaching session with Carmen. She listened to me truly and helped me to clarify my thoughts in order to identify by myself what the core really is. Her support and kind yet objective coaching was a tremendous help and had a meaningful impact in my mind. By working together, I managed to set up a strong foundation of what it is to live a life that for me is meaningful and worth living, and I am very grateful to her for that.
Sydney Park Project Manager, Denmark
Carmen is a gentle, caring and very competent coach. She is not deciding what I should do, but keep leading me to find my own path by my own, through her techniques in dialogues, professional coaching tools from her educations and her endless dedication on being a coach. Thanks to her coaching, I am much more confident on myself and I realize that it is me who shapes my life and how to live it; happy or miserable. And I am striving consciously for creating my own happiness in every moment. I highly recommend Carmen as your coach!

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” — Anais Nin
The Courageous Woman Program tailored for you:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” — Marianne Williamson
Start your transformation! Be courageous and join us!
