Coaching is for you if you want to implement growth and change in any area of your life, and are willing to invest the time, energy, and resources to do so.
Coaching is for you if you are open to identifying patterns, habits, and beliefs that are not aligned with the life you desire to live, and are interested in learning and practicing new patterns that do.
Coaching is for you if you are willing to be truly seen, heard, and known.
Coaching is for you if you are up for me seeing you and your shit, and loving the hell out of you anyway.
Coaching is not for you if you are currently experiencing a mental health crisis. In that instance, please seek immediate mental health treatment.
Coaching is not for you if you already have all that you want in all areas of your professional life, relationships, and physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. In that case, you keep doing you, Boo.
Coaching is not for you if you want someone to tell you what to do. As your coach, it’s my job to support you in generating clarity around your own answers, rather than giving you my opinions and advice. A good coach will empower you to choose your own adventure, rather than assuming they know what’s best for your life.
Coaching is not for you if you are looking for a quick fix. Coaching at its best supports people in creating permanent shifts in long-standing patterns, beliefs, and ways of being. While I am a firm believer that change can happen in an instant, maintaining and sustaining transformation does not happen overnight.

Coaching and therapy can both be extraordinarily valuable modalities. I personally feel that many folks can benefit from both! In fact, many of my coaching clients are either referred by a therapist, or are also working with a therapist at the same time they are working with me as their coach.
In a nutshell, therapy is a form of mental health treatment designed to address issues such as clinical anxiety, depression, addiction, or trauma. On the other hand, coaching provides the tools, structure, accountability, and clarity to envision, articulate, and create future goals. It is an exceptionally unique and special relationship, unlike any other I’ve experienced.
Thanks for asking! The first step is to book a complementary coaching session, where we will explore what it could look like to work together. We will both get a feel for whether or not we are a good fit to work together, and whether or not coaching would benefit you at this point in your life. In the event that we both feel we are a good fit, I will make a recommendation for frequency and duration of coaching, based what you’d like to accomplish through our work together.
Absolutely! I meet with the majority of my life coaching clients remotely, via Zoom.
I suppose it’s a little different for every person! You might get an idea of my personality and what’s it’s like to talk with me in this podcast, where the host and I chat about my approach to coaching.
No. My intention during our complimentary call is to provide you with the uncommon gift of being fully seen, known, and accepted exactly as you are, and to experience me as your coach. This conversation also provides us both the opportunity to asses whether we are a good fit to work together. By the end of our call, if I feel I can support you, I’ll invite you to work with me. If I feel another coach or professional would better serve you, I’ll share with you those professional suggestions and referrals.
"I highly recommend Carrie Wren Coaching to anyone seeking solid ground or looking to chart a new course in life. I met Carrie through her soulful yoga classes and felt drawn to begin coaching with her as well. I started our coaching journey with a specific 6-month goal: to leave my current job and start a new one. Within two weeks of beginning coaching, I had already secured the job of my dreams and given notice. After landing my new job, I continued coaching with Carrie to deepen my self-knowledge of who I had been, who I was, and who I wanted to be. Now that I have completed coaching (for now!) many months later, I reflect on my time with Carrie in awe. Carrie is like that friend who runs alongside you in a marathon, tossing you sustaining water exactly when you need it most. I can now say with confidence that I know my essence, I feel sure of my path and purpose, I feel in control of the intentions I set and the patterns I create, and I’ve added some tested tools in my box for when I get stuck. Thank you, Carrie, for never judging, always loving, always challenging and supporting me.

“I began working with Carrie Wren in a time where I was seeking a major life shift – in my career, relationships, and daily life. Carrie has helped me identify and loosen my tight grip on old and false narratives of myself, and to embrace my truth. In this, I have gained so much trust, confidence, and belief in myself. In just a year of working with Carrie I went from working a draining job, to running my own wellness business that fully nourishes me. My relationships and boundaries have been strengthened, and daily life looks like what I used to dream of. Carrie is a vessel of love, support, truth, presence, and light. If you are feeling the pull to work with Carrie, listen and take action. Invest in yourself, I promise you are worth it.”
-Casey Jean, Yoga Teacher + Herbalist, Charlotte, NC
"Have you ever experienced unconditional trust from another human being? No?! You should definitely hire a coach! Carrie trusted me before I trusted me. Working with Carrie and being trusted to make the best choices and decisions for myself has given me the space to grow into a person that operates from a place of deep seated inner trust, integrity, and smart (and fun) risk taking. I’m always given time and space in our sessions to feel the uncomfortable feelings that get in the way of me taking action. I get to express myself fully, without judgment. I leave each session feeling empowered and excited about my life! Imagine that! My advice: call Carrie and hire a damn coach already!
- Heidi, Life Coach, New York
"When we first started working together, I felt a lot of anxiety around what other people thought of me. I wanted to find consistency in my thoughts, feelings and emotions and also wanted to focus my energy on being comfortable in my own skin and stop worrying about what other people thought of me. By going through the coaching program, I was given tools and practices to help conquer some of my emotions, fears and anxiety. I am very much an action type person, so having practices and assignments each week really helped me to learn about myself and see things differently."
- Kristen, Project Manager, Chicago
"Our time together was the first time in years that I prioritized my personal goals and happiness…Once I made that small step it was easier and easier to make that choice in my life. As our time together continued the tools and insight on how to set my long term goals and vision for my life keep me on the path I wanted and not swayed back into traditional life choices."
- Michelle, Health Coach and Yoga Teacher, Charlotte, NC
"When we started working together, I had been experiencing a lot of the ‘not good enough’ thoughts in a variety of settings- work, relationships, place in the world, family. I felt like I was letting ‘failures’ define me, and felt guilty and shameful when acknowledging those issues. Coaching was worth it. For me, it created new way to examine the life I’m creating- to redefine what is success, what is good, what is acceptable, according to my own values, views, and experiences."
