“I am committed to enabling all women (& men) to have equal chances for personal & professional growth; of self-realisation in reaching their true potential, and continually growing – in the workplace, at home and in the community. Charis Coaching is one of the few organisations I have come across which actively encourages this, and at the same time equalises the landscape for this to occur. Their Buy One Gift One means that there is a levelling effect, and that women from diverse backgrounds and situations can find empowerment through coaching. I am excited to be a part of continuing to unlock the amazing human potential through my work with Charis.”
