Meet the Life Coaches

Carole Ann Rice

Carole Ann Rice

AFC fellow coach.
I’m Carole Ann – life coach, journalist and author. In the past 11 years of being a life coach I use a combination of wit and coaching wisdom to transform my client’s lives from floor to soar. I have coached supermodels, rock stars, writers and athletes along with CEO’s, mums at home, students and business start ups. I simply adore what I do. I would say in all my years of coaching there is not a problem or issue I have not heard or experienced and can provide a coaching solution for. I have lived my 10,000 hours of experience and consider myself an expert in this field. My background is in journalism and I have written for most of nationals from the Independent on Sunday to The Sun, Red and OK! Magazines and I am the only life coach in the UK to have her own column – Happy Monday in the Daily Express – featured in a national daily newspaper. My corporate clients have included Visa, London School of Economics, McCann Erickson, Universities UK and the National Children’s Bureau and as a coach has been featured in The Times, Metro News, Harpers Bazaar, Zest, New Woman and Glamour magazines. I am proud to be co-author of the bestseller Find Your Dream Job and our new book Start Your Dream Business came out in April 2013 – both of which I wrote with my brilliant client Sarah Wade. I did a three year life coaching course with the internationally renowned CoachU and am a member of the International Coaching Federation. Becoming a coach was, without doubt, singularly the best career move I have ever made. Helping to motivate and inspire people to find their passion and purpose in life is beyond satisfying. It’s a privilege. Whether writing a book, finding a partner, creating a business or simply moving a client on from lackluster feelings to impassioned engagement – helping a client achieve their goals has meant that I no longer see work as a hardship but pure pleasure. As a coach I have overcome obstacles and grown my own potential on a daily basis. As coaches we have to walk our talk and develop as we coach. Not many professions offer such infinite possibilities. How cool is that? I offer my personal guarantee to you that you will find a career as a life coach enlightening and world changing and the doors of opportunity that can open for you are limitless. It all begins with you.
