What Clients Say

“I cannot claim to understand in depth the techniques employed by Caroline Lucas. I can only sincerely testify that they worked for me.

Briefly, the sudden onset of a potentially serious illness realised my worst fears – admission to hospital and serious surgery. “Petrified” would not be an over statement and after only three sessions with Caroline my anxiety levels dropped to the normal apprehension felt, I expect, by almost everybody. This turned a lengthy operation and a seven day hospital incarceration into a very positive experience! Furthermore the approach taught and the attitude resulting has stayed with me. Many thanks Caroline.”

C.P Dorset

“Over the last few months Caroline has been a true Godsend to me. I was fortunate enough to be doing a training course with her when I first experienced her warmth, kindness and incredible skills.

I was in floods of tears, as I had just realised something about my childhood. I apologised to her and furiously started wiping away my tears. She took me gently by the arm and said “lets walk and talk. Let the tears come.

I instantly felt safe and for the first time in 42 years things began to make sense. I trusted her implicitly. Since that time I have been lucky enough to work with Caroline again, both face to face and on the telephone.

The most recent phone session started with me being in a very depressed mood and trying to work out why. Caroline stopped this pattern of thinking in its tracks and by the end of our conversation my mood had lifted and we were laughing.

She just knows how to help, without disempowering you. In fact she totally empowers you. If you are reading this and you do get the chance to work with Caroline, take that step. You will never regret it. She is a true gift.”

Vicky. Cornwall

“Caroline helped me to focus on the skills and qualities I already possess, enabling me to take control of anxious feelings. I feel lighter with more humour in my life.”

Debbie. Exeter

“Working with Caroline has enabled me to become clearer about the end of a marriage break up and reduce the guilt I felt. Caroline has also worked with me to look at my current career and allowed me to explore insights into what I really want to do in the future. She has helped me plan a vision for that future, which includes doing work I have a real passion for, without the fear I felt previously. I feel my confidence and self – esteem has grown as a result of our work together. Life also feels lighter and more fun. I noticed I was often bored, not having enough to do, but now I am busy, very strange!”

Barbara. Devon

“I had to make serious changes in my life. From the very beginning I felt comfortable working with Caroline. It was amazing how my life was starting to change due to the life skills I learnt from Caroline. I wish I had met her years ago. I have gained confidence and feel more whole and complete. She is an incredible person and I would definitely recommend her. Thank you so much Caroline for helping me change my life.”

 
Paula, Teign Valley

“Before I met Caroline I struggled with fractious and explosive anger that would often leave me drained and low for days afterwards. This tension, and the anxiety that was driving it, was affecting the way I dealt with my work and personal relationships.

Thanks to Caroline’s patient and perceptive guidance I have become a far calmer and happier individual, able to deal with anger far more effectively than I ever thought possible. Through practical and insightful observations and techniques Caroline helped me to identify problem areas and uncover the anxieties and disquiet that were feeding my frustration. My self-esteem is invigorated and my previous tendency to deny, bottle up or beat myself up over my emotions has essentially been extinguished.

Working with Caroline has been hugely beneficial for all walks of my life and friends and family have commented upon my fresh outlook: I am more confident, genuinely cheerful and capable of dealing with problems or situations which previously would have been infuriating or paralysing.

Caroline is experienced and considerate, she not only helps you in her sessions but also provides you with the tools to continue to help yourself, should there be any need to do so. For anyone seeking to improve their emotional health in any way, Caroline should be your first port of call.

Tom. Exeter

“I felt angry, guilty and fearful about things prior to seeing Caroline. I still have the memory of the issues, but they no longer have the emotional charge they had before. I can now stand up for myself, keep calm and stop thinking of bad stuff and focus on what I want instead. I feel in control now, solving my own problems and changing what I decide I want to change. 

My life is easier, my relationships happier and everyone has noticed, some of the comments I receive are: I look great, lighter, and freer, I am more confident, bubbly and more at peace with myself. It has been the best investment in myself that I have ever made. I am really pleased that I had made the decision to see Caroline. The future now looks very exciting. Thank you.” 

Sue, Exeter

“I feel much calmer now and in control of my life. Caroline was very professional and understanding and I felt very relaxed safe and supported.”

Kirsten. Exeter

“You are in safe hands with Caroline.

I know I needed to make changes, but was unsure what I needed to do!  All I could see was that life wasn’t going to plan and the same problems kept on recurring – Relationship Problems and Lack of Confidence and the common denominator was me!!

Caroline helps you to see the patterns and triggers which have become a habit in your life and which you continually do, but can’t see yourself doing – Victim Mentality, Not taking Responsibility for your own actions, all wrapped around old emotions from the past.

Through various techniques Caroline and her intuition are able to cut through this in the present day scenarios, releasing old stacked emotions, to leave you feeling tired, calm, relieved and able to move on from your old patterning.  In fact you can step into a new you, which ultimately helps you to step into a healthier life.”

A.M. Newton Abbott

“Having tried various forms of therapy in the past, with varying levels of success, I was looking for something unique, when I discovered Caroline. My driving anxiety that I’d been struggling with for months was dealt with in one session and I am now a confident and happy driver. We went on to deal with some deeper emotional issues over the course of several months, and through the varying techniques used by Caroline, I am now anxiety – free and happy, and can cope in many everyday situations where before I struggled.

My sessions with Caroline have certainly changed my life for the better. For the first time, I consistently feel confident, in control of my life, calm, positive and able to deal with whatever life throws at me. If there is ever a wobbly moment, I know that I can use the techniques taught to me by Caroline to get me back on track. I cannot thank her enough for all of her help and recommend her services to anybody that wants a positive and successful outcome.”

N. Exeter

“I was feeling completely overwhelmed by my life, even the easiest task such as going to the supermarket looked difficult to me. I was feeling tired, unmotivated and I thought that my life didn’t make any sense. I had a challenging relationship with my mum, which was affecting my life. I had always needed my mum’s support and approval. This came from my insecurity, low self esteem and my need for others, especially my mum, to show they loved me. From the very first time I met Caroline, I knew she would really help me. After a few sessions, I was already feeling much more confident, and my relationship with my daughter improved. I didn’t feel stressed and tired. I felt motivated and happy to go to work and my work improved dramatically.

I have just had two weeks with my mum and she was astonished to see how different I am. We had a lovely time together, which had not happened for a very long time. I am very happy now, I live my life without worrying about everything, and I am confident in my future. I know my life makes sense and I like it.

Self development coaching made a huge change in me and my life. I highly recommend it”

Francessca. Exeter

“Thank you for a lovely couple of hours, I really enjoyed myself. I found the two hours invaluable to help me relax and put me into a much better place after a very busy week. The whole process helped me reconnect to me and forget the stories I had walked in with. It seems like a true indulgence to do this on a Friday afternoon however, I would say it was the most valuable thing to do to reconnect to who you are. It has helped me to look at my life from a different perspective, I can now see the wood for the trees.”

Client, Mindfulness Forest Walk in Exeter, Devon

“Further to the session I had with you, I thought you might be interested to know that I passed my driving test yesterday with flying colours. I am certain you were instrumental in helping me get through the blocks that were preventing my progress. Thank you so much for your help and I hope you continue to help many others along the way”

B.D

“A particularly bad relationship had completely destroyed my confidence and self – esteem. After two years in a repetitive cycle, shutting myself away from the world and comfort eating, I decided I needed to try something different.

I found Caroline on the internet and made the decision to start my journey with her. I cannot recommend Caroline highly enough for what we have achieved together. Despite the skepticism from my friends and family. I learnt so much about myself with Caroline. She has helped me believe in myself again and want to live instead of hiding myself away.

I can look in the mirror without cringing, walk into a room without wondering what people are thinking about me. I am happier than I have been in years. I look forward to the future with excitement and do not dread getting up every day. I would recommend everyone to give it a try. Thanks so much Caroline for helping me get my life back.”

Vicky. H

“Working with Caroline has helped me gain a clearer perspective of where I am in my life. She listens well, and has enough resources and experience to be flexible in her approach. Issues that had kept recurring over the years are now no longer a problem for me.

I have developed healthy strategies which are apparent in my approach to others and my own behaviour. I am now able to voice my feelings clearly and feel more empowered and true to myself. Caroline has impressed me with her honesty and integrity. She is able to get to the root of an issue very quickly. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to make changes for the better in their life. Caroline will make the difference between that change being a struggle or a process”

C.H Guilford

“I had three sessions with Caroline. During my first session I was surprised that some goals I had difficulty in achieving were actually very easy. It was a matter of changing my thought processes, in doing this my goals became achievable.

I found that my motivation increased, my priorities changed and my aims for my business became clearer.

I find that although my workload hasn’t diminished, I am calmer and less stressed and the children are happier.”

Louise. M

“Prior to to working with Caroline my main challenges were anger, irritability, and low tolerance levels in the workplace. Increasing managerial work responsibilities, bereavement, health issues and moving my life to Exeter had all left me feeling frustrated, low and mentally exhausted.

Within a few months of working together, we were able to identify and address issues that were producing significant negative effects: resulting in better relationships at work, feeling invigorated and more confident.

Family and work colleagues have been able to appreciate the difference in my approach and how I deal with situations, which were previously triggering negative reactions. Most importantly, I feel happier, I am managing the challenging aspects of my work with new confidence and without the personal emotions, doubts and fears that were influencing me before. Through self development Coaching with Caroline I have achieved the results that I set out to achieve and I would highly recommend it. The process has been enjoyable, life changing and invaluable and I will undoubtedly continue to work with Caroline in the future, should I need to.”

Kay. Exeter

“Before I started working with Caroline I had tried so many different ways to help overcome my anxiety. I came to Caroline as my social phobia, panic attacks and blushing were effecting every aspect of my life and holding me back. Caroline really helped me to get to the root of the problem and encouraged me to look at and examine the way I viewed myself and the effect this had on my behaviour.

Caroline helped me have more respect for myself and to move on with my life. I am no longer afraid to go into situations which would have ordinarily terrified me. She has enabled me to get my life back. Caroline is patient, kind and understanding and really helps you get to the root of the problem.

I have spent over 20 years with this issue and thought I would never be able to get over it or find anyone who could help. Caroline is sincere and really cares and time spent with her is worth it’s weight in gold. Thank you Caroline.”

J, Exeter

“I had been feeling anxious about the future, dealing with grief and loss, having feelings of loneliness and inadequacy for a long time during a period of great change. I had to leave a successful career and redesign my life.

When I worked with Caroline, I addressed these issues and changed the way I looked at my life.

During this process I was able to let go of the uncomfortable emotions connected to some traumatic situations form the past. We explored all the issues that were holding me back, with a variety of techniques. This enabled me to draw on skills and resources I never realised I had, as well as gaining new ones.

This experience empowered and enabled me to have greater freedom, more choice, better relationships and to look forward to the future with greater confidence and optimism.

I have found out what I really love and want to do in my life. I now welcome change instead of fearing it. My life feels good and is so different. I feel very grateful to Caroline for working with me.”

S.G

“I have battled with anxiety and depression since a child and I am now 43 years old. I have seen various counsellors and Psychotherapists since the age of 22.

In recent years I had resigned myself to living with constant underlying fear. When in social situations of any kind my mind would race around evaluating the safety of the environment. A blanket of fuzz would usually follow. I had a gaping hole in my tummy that I constantly needed to fill with food or new courses. I could not rest, mentally or physically.

I started working with Caroline in January of this year. I instantly found her warm, caring, perceptive, empathetic and honest. She didn’t let me get away with previous ‘games’ I’d unknowingly been playing with other therapists. Thank goodness.

We worked on whatever came up in the space of time leading up to the session. If during that session we needed to look at something more pressing, we would. I found I cried when I needed to cry, shouted when I needed to get angry and sat with whatever emotion was present. For someone who has spent a lifetime running from her feelings, this was phenomenal. Not always comfortable, but amazing none the less.

We have now worked through a huge amount of trauma. Piece by piece. Between sessions I have felt supported. Caroline always arranged a follow up session and I was learning tools all of the time. 

If you are considering committing yourself to working with Caroline I would encourage you to go for it. I can safely say she has changed my life and set me free. I know the last comment sounds extravagant, but it’s not. Without her I would be surviving still and hunting for the next therapist. Caroline has a gift and it comes from what, I believe, she herself has experienced. She has been there and has had to find her own way out. She is now willing to help others by sharing her journey through her work. I can never thank her enough. She is a gift.”

V. T. Cornwall

“For anyone who may have doubts about the effectiveness of EFT and self development coaching, I Suzanne can say with complete honesty that the effects on me are simply amazing. Since working with Caroline people are remarking how much happier and confident I appear to be and suddenly after years of distress I feel reborn, more active and positive. This has completely changed my life it’s wonderful.”

Suzanne

“As a result of working with Caroline, I am no longer tolerating or procrastinating about the list of things I wanted to address at the start of my Coaching. I have taken lots of steps and have a clearer way forward and am closer to achieving my long-term lifestyle goal.”

J, Exeter

“Working with Caroline has helped me gain my own personal power, energy and positive self image. This and the other results of the realisations made, letting go of buried anger and limiting beliefs have enabled me to move forward and to become true to myself for the first time. This has had a beneficial effect on my relationships, my own work and how I plan to live the rest of my life. Thank you.”
