As a judge, I found running for the office of Town Supervisor to have different challenges than I had faced before. With Caryn’s help, I was able to be true to myself and find the resources to help me run a campaign of which I could be proud. She created a space where I could honestly look at my concerns, face them and in the end I found new ways to overcome my obstacles. Oh, and I won the election.

I can only use the word gifted to describe the work Caryn McCurry does for her clients. She is always entirely present, leaning in and listening deeply, at the same time keeping a thorough narrative of the session, never missing any of the key nuggets. She gets that whether you’re in an existential career crisis, or just want to reframe your work life, it’s an emotional process that starts from the inside.

...Hey Caryn this is very random but I just really wanted to thank you for everything you did for me in those sessions we had. It truly did help me out more than I could have ever imagined. And at the time I didn't really realize but now I do. And I just really wanted to say thanks. I registered for classes today. And I start classes this week.

Caryn was my rock as she gently guided me through a much needed career transition. With her expertise in understanding the human spirit - my spirit - she facilitated my process to move from large enterprise to becoming an independent consultant. I am now truly valued and highly compensated for the expertise I bring to my clients.

The Core Value Clusters exercise was amazing. Caryn's expertise and patience helped to bring out those values most critical for my happiness. The session also provided a personalized outline of next steps to getting back into the workforce. Afterwards it became clear that the key to happiness was to find a position that would not undermine my Core Values. This was a highly liberating exercise. I felt free to make new choices vs. automatically jumping back to where I had left off.

I could not have asked for a better coach in my life! Caryn truly is an exceptional life and career coach with unique talents and abilities. She has helped me immensely with identifying my capabilities and strengths as well as re-aligning my life and career path. Through her loving and encouraging support, my awareness of self has expanded and my life purpose has become clearer than ever. I am extremely grateful for all Caryn has taught me through her insightful guidance, practical approach and empowering coaching techniques.

Caryn is a gift of light, a mirror of truth, a fire under your butt and a warm security blanket holding you through difficult changes. Never have I met someone who is better at instantly creating and holding a safe space for me to face my own truths and stumbling blocks. I had never done coaching before and was unsure what to expect. After working with her for just a few sessions it is clear that she is a gift, that her coaching is a gift for those who allow themselves to experience it. It is rare in our modern day to meet with someone who doesn't just accept you at the superficial level but sees your truths and unlocks deeper connection and meaning. I am particularly sensitive and emotional and the way in which Caryn held that space for me and helped me to integrate into my whole self, is unlike anything I have ever experienced. I have been blessed to work with her.
Just a few coaching sessions revealed what an attentive coach she is. She allowed me to focus on what is most important to me and together created a connection to my creativity that I had been missing as of late. She is kind, genuine, and in tune with her clients’ needs. It did not take long to understand that anyone who coaches with her will see results immediately, as I did, and there are no limits to what can be accomplished with regular coaching.

I consulted Caryn feeling stuck in my career and anxious about money and future prospects, and since our 21 uplifting and empowering sessions I feel confident and optimistic. What a difference! She listened without judgment, pointed out negative thinking, and gave tons of practical tools and suggestions that I could put directly into action. She reminded me regularly about some basic but easily overlooked concepts for positive and conscious living. I felt supported but also challenged with Caryn. It was work, not fluff, though the work was a pleasure. I have a new part-time job and I’m finding again my vocation for what I do. I’m open to different ways I can use my knowledge. And did I mention that Caryn coached me through a terrifying health scare? I look forward to working with her again and tackling other issues both personal and professional in the not-too-distant future. Hooray and thank you Caryn!
