Explore the Heartful Relationships Course & Coaching
Communication skills are the bedrock of successful relationships
There is a Trilogy of courses but this first one ~ “The Foundations” stands alone and is the foundation upon which the other two are crafted. The teachings are grouped into four modules spread over 16 weeks. Each week you will focus on one fundamental learning/practice, making it easy to integrate into daily life without using too much valuable time or becoming overwhelmed. Change will then build solidly as you absorb each week’s new skill and insights.
Why I created this course
I didn’t speak until I was six but I was very busy people-watching. As a child, I observed many interactions with distress and confusion. Why was there such a mismatch between adults’ obvious feelings and their words? The seed for this course was germinating way back then and a life-long quest unfolded around how to relate well with myself, others and the world.
Even fundamental communication skills were not taught in school, and so, over time, I studied with experts and collected folders of wisdom on the subject, hoping that one day walking my talk would also enhance the lives of my children-to-be. It did.
Shockingly, my first son, drowned in a local river, aged five. Despite the unthinkable loss, I was comforted by knowing that I had listened deeply to him during his short life and done my best to role model healthy ways of relating. When he died, I experienced how few were able to relate to me authentically in my grief, and my sensitivity increased to the harmful way many “grownups” speak to children as a matter of course. And so, I began writing educational articles and leading workshops to help adults ~ parents or otherwise ~ to communicate more consciously, with heart.
In 2015, the very best nougats of my learning were published in a handbook ~ Heart of Relating: Communication Beyond Ego The Heartful Relationships Course arose in response to numerous requests to provide an online “package” that can be sent globally with ease (without using paper or postage). It is inspired by the book content but not exactly the same.
Course One is on offer by email now and will be with you as soon as I receive your booking.
Parts Two and Three of the TRILOGY will be available soon.
In 1993, I was blessed with a second son, Asher, who uses these teachings in his ‘Self in Centre’ coaching business today!

I was in a frozen dilemma in my relationship with my sister when I found Carmella. Our conversations were nothing short of transformative. In a gentle, honest way she presented me with observations, suggestions, challenges and a way forward.C.T. (Worcester, UK)
Carmella has made a massive difference to my relationships and how I view myself. Practical suggestions changed day-to-day habits within personal and work relationships. Doors have opened within my heart, mind and life.P. H. (Birmingham, UK)
