About Me

charlotte ashley-roberts coach women business leadership st neots cambridgeshire

Hi, my name is Charlie and I am a careers and transitions coach based in Cambridgeshire. I specialise in women in business and leadership (particularly those returning to work after having children)

After being made redundant I began exploring my purpose and realised I wanted to do something more. I wanted to help people find what makes them happy and so I went into career coaching, supporting over 4500 people since I started. This self-reflection was reignited when I became a parent in 2013. I rediscovered my purpose by learning to let go of my identity as ‘just’ a coach and as ‘just’ a mum and to allow my true identity to shine through to develop the life I really wanted. I am a proud mum to 3  girls and enjoy the giggles and memories that come with motherhood. I am partial to a vegan cupcake or three and do lots of running in my spare time which you can find on Instagram.

My philosophy

I can help you work mindfully through any mental or emotional blocks that are holding you back, empowering you to develop the clarity, confidence and vision you need to get where you want to be. I'm dedicated to helping you achieve your potential, to discover your strengths, allowing you to lead a fulfilling and authentic life and increasing your wellbeing.

I am passionate about holding the space for you to think about yourself and encouraging you to be yourself, not someone's mum, boss, employee but you. I want you to understand your worth and help you stay focused.

When you are with me I want you to feel like you and I are the only people in the world, that you have all the time in the world, that you matter, because you do.

Once you are clear about what makes you stand out, it becomes much easier to create a step-by-step plan to get to where you want to be and achieve change beyond what you thought was possible.

My work is based on the principle that the answer to the question lies inside all of us and that by giving you the time, space and tools to reflect you will make progress. My mission is to give you the confidence to know that whatever it is you want to do, you can.

How I work

My approach is gentle but effective. I work mindfully and use a combination of traditional and creative coaching techniques tailored to your needs.

I offer:

  • One-to-one sessions
  • Personal development workshops
  • Business development workshops and seminars for individuals and teams

All of which are available face to face and online.

Why choose me?

Feedback from clients describes me as inspiring, creative, provocative, supportive, empathetic and authentic. I have a real passion for what I do which I believe is contagious and I truly believe coaching has a powerful impact on the quality of the life you lead.

Coaching is an investment. When you invest in yourself you are doing more than spending time and money. You are putting yourself higher up your priority list. Working with me is a four-figure investment and whether it’s developing yourself personally or professionally, investing in yourself is likely to be the best investment you make. 

If you are ready to make changes and living your best life then let's talk about working together. I invite you to look at the testimonials I have received to demonstrate how coaching with me has benefited and transformed some of my clients’ lives. 

My qualifications and Professional Memberships

I have qualifications in Careers Guidance from the University of Warwick and more recently in Personal and Business Coaching from the University of Chester. I am a member of the International Coaching Federation and the National Council of Psychotherapists.

Charlie has been my coach since the start of what was a very trying time in my life – there were significant changes happening, and many projects that had to be managed simultaneously.

"Working with Charlie kept me clear about where I wanted to focus my energy, what actions I wanted to take and on track, while maintaining my sanity and also getting enough sleep. 

She really helped keep me focussed and grounded during this time of massive transition, to the point that now, I am launching a new business that seems likely to turn over six figures in year one (which I hadn’t planned for and definitely didn’t expect), I am clear about my plans and I am moving forward quickly and clearly.

I can’t recommend Charlie enough.  She’s brilliant." - Suzanne
