"My mission is more than helping you to heal from history, it is about cultivating the conscious experience of authentic Self,
to become the fullest expression of your true potential.”
- Charlotte Braithwaite
Hello, welcome! I am Charlotte Braithwaite - Coach, Psychotherapist and the founder of Be Conscious. I am also the co-founder of the Network for Younger Counsellors & Therapists - a community that champions millennial mental health professionals.
Having experienced my own breakdown (or spiritual awakening according to Brené Brown) and severe burn out in my early twenties, I was inspired through my own experience of seeking professional support to radically change career path.
Initially training as a psychotherapist, I further diversified into life and leadership coaching in service of a wider calling. I am deeply passionate that every human being should have access to an educational and transformational experience of enhanced self-awareness - especially those who want be the change they want to see in the world.
Specialising in existential crisis, trauma healing, revolutionary relationships and evolutionary leadership, nothing fulfils me more than helping people connect to their authentic Self and conscious-will to make positive change, in life, in love and in leadership.
Over the last decade, I have immersed myself in the world of mental health and personal development, working 1:1 with clients from the UK and across the globe. I also thoroughly enjoy delivering workshops and webinars to teams and organisations in service of empathy-led communication, culture transformation and purposeful people management.
On a personal level, I identify as a wife, bonus-mum, daughter, sister, friend, career woman, sometimes over-eager student and a recovering perfectionist! But centre of my many roles and responsibilities, like you, I am human and continuously healing, learning and evolving.
Creating a safe, confidential and comfortable space is an integral part of any coaching or therapeutic process. My private practice is based in Bedford (UK), held in a private summer house on my property.
It was important to me to create an environment that countered any clinical stereotype and enhanced the client's overall experience.
For international clients or those who prefer working online for convenience, I also work confidently via secure, end-to-end encrypted platforms.
