Caroline is an experienced management consultant and executive coach, with a Master’s degree in clinical organisational psychology from INSEAD and a postgraduate diploma in executive coaching from Ashridge University.

With over 15 years business experience, mainly in management consulting, Caroline has mostly worked with large, international corporations in France and the US, focusing on senior leaders and high potentials. Today she focuses on leadership development and executive coaching.

Combining her proven track record in executive search, leadership development, career development and coaching, she helps her clients get a fresh perspective on their specific journeys. Using a combination of a relational approach to coaching and a systems psychodynamic perspective, she particularly enjoys taking them to the cusp of powerful moments of insight, her research topic at INSEAD. She likes to help her clients see “below the surface” and is not afraid to have brave,  sometimes challenging conversations, taking them to uncharted territories and leveraging the transformational power of self-awareness. She empowers them to identify blockers preventing optimal performance, and to work towards removing them.

Recognised for her empathy and strong listening skills, as well as an ability to create trust and build a safe space with her clients, she loves helping them bloom and feel more aligned, bringing the professional and the personal together in a more wholesome balance.

Having lived in both the US & France, Caroline is fluent in English and French and can carry out coaching sessions in either language.  She now lives in Paris with her husband and two young sons.
