Testimonials for Cara Moore, Life and Executive Coach
My Testimonials show how my Life Coaching give my clients the tools to deal with anything life throws at them. Get in touch with me today and learn how I can help you to have a positive outlook on life.
I was extremely sceptical when I was first offered coaching. But, management at a high level can be a lonely place. Cara’s gentle and extremely acute observations help bring clarity of strategy and purpose. She listens intently. She helps her clients find solutions for themselves, from within themselves. It is not an indulgence to reflect on successes and failures: it is a necessary part of effective management. Her keen-eyed encouragement helps her clients find ways around obstacles, and take logical small steps towards larger goals. After just six sessions, the burden of leadership was not only lighter, it had become a positive drive.
I met Cara when I felt I was at rock bottom after a few years of varying emotional troubles at work and home. I tried to project a happy, positive, glass half full kind of personality, but I hid a multitude of insecurities and a real feeling of self doubt and lack of confidence, and inside I often felt miserable. I didn’t want to burden my friends with my seemingly innocuous problems, and I tried counselling but felt I was just going over the same negative things time and time again and wasn’t progressing.
Cara has helped me turn things around completely. She is so easy to talk to and works through things in bite size, calm, logical and manageable chunks. That is exactly what I needed to move on rather than keep reliving all the negativity in my life. I am now a genuinely glass half full person. In our last session she summed it up by saying to me “I can feel your excitement and energy radiating off you and it’s infectious!” If that’s not a compliment I don’t know what is; I have had similar comments from other friends in recent weeks most of whom have no idea I have been seeing Cara, so I must be doing something right.
Everyone should have a Cara in their lives (and a Google – all will be explained when you meet Cara)!
Thank you oodles for a great session today. I learnt, as always, new ways of looking at things, jotted down some books to read and reflected on why I use you as a life coach. When people ask me what I get from seeing you as my life coach, my response is that it’s equally the knowledge I draw on in between our sessions. I can’t tell you the amount of times you come into my head as I muse over a challenge or new venture. ‘What would Cara say’, ‘What’s a good TED talk Cara mentioned to look at’ … Even though we don’t regularly chat, you’re always there in my thoughts, helping my get things right and improve on the not so good 😊.
I contacted Cara at a time of great change and uncertainty and greatly appreciated her empathetic, professional and personable coaching style. The process is subtle but challenging and helped to close the gap between where my life was and I wanted to be significantly. Over a few months I gained clarity and perspective and can happily say I am now where I want to be and have a good understanding of where I’m going.
I would thoroughly recommend coaching with Cara for anyone who needs clarity and direction in life.
At certain points in life the bucket fills and disorder sets in and the adage of “can’t see the wood for the trees” occurs – despite our experience or maturity. It’s at times like these some sound ‘tools’ and words of advice are required. This is exactly where Cara helps and assists. I found Cara to be profoundly sensitive, professional, personable and understanding to the various ‘challenge’s’ I was facing and helped me put order back into my life. These tools not only helped with my immediate goals and focus but also came to the fore when a life changing event occurred. Cara’s sessions are enlightening and her website, posts and newsletters provide continued confidence in netting the true values and direction for one’s self. Having totally reset my personal direction and focus, with the help of Cara’s advice I can step forward confidently and with complete clarity on where life will now take me. I can’t thank Cara enough for that guidance. we can’t all do it by ourselves all of the time and gentle ‘resets’ can clear ‘fog’ quite quickly. I’m so glad I made contact a few years ago…..
I worked with Cara on one level to help me make a significant transition in my professional life, and we nailed that!
However, on another level, she also helped me understand “me”: who I am, what I value and how all that affects why I do the things I do, what I want and why I want it.
This was delicate stuff and Cara partnered with me to create the trust, space and accountability that gave me the powerful insights I needed. I have emerged a calmer and more present person, with an increased awareness of my goals and ways of working / living.
Cara was recommended to me by a friend and I absolutely will recommend her in turn to my friends!
I have had 2 different professional coaches before in my career, Cara is in another league all together. I enlisted Cara to support an important professional transition. I am a Board level executive. She helped me become aware of underlying assumptions for my beliefs, leaving me with a deeper level of mindfulness. I regained some control I felt was lost. I formed a more holistic view of my goals. I made a very difficult decision I had not anticipated to make. Results: I now have a great job that works on all aspects (spouse, kids, house, school etc.) To give you a feel, our exchanges were mostly Cara asking simple but essential questions and listening deeply. Less frequently and at well selected times, she provided a recommendation. It’s very refreshing to find a coach who actually teaches you how to fish, but has the courage to give her opinion at times. Her suggestions were always spot on, Cara gets how big corporations work. An unexpected benefit is that I learn a lot about how to be a good coach to others, by just watching her do her thing. I highly recommend Cara.
I am very thankful for the time and attention Cara provided in helping me become a more assertive and confident leader. Not only do I see a change in my leadership, but I feel stronger in my growth mindset and in prioritizing areas in my leadership which matter the most to me. Professional coaching has made a significant impact on my own leadership efficacy and on helping me balance home, work, and wellness.
