"I wish I’d done a course like this 10 years ago.
The tools taught throughout the Authentic Confidence course have become a part of my daily life and have already been incredibly influential to my way of thinking and reacting."
Managing Director, Finance
"I have been coached by Caroline for many years now. With her help, I was able to break through several life-limiting boundaries and really move into living a better version of myself and my life!
She is warm, dynamic and passionate about helping people carve out the best paths in life. She works with you in a variety of ways so the sessions are always varied and energetic. You come away from the sessions with clarity and a great sense of personal purpose and engagement."
Senior Buyer, Retail
"Caroline is talented and insightful, and her professional training and expertise comes out in every session.
I’ve participated in other courses and read a few “life-changing” best-sellers, and not one has had such a profound positive impact.
Caroline instills trust in her and within the group so that you always feel safe when doing some vulnerable work.
The course structure, material, and group work challenged me, but feeling so supported allowed me to honestly confront some very uncomfortable truths. Shedding the weight of perceived failures empowered me to move forward with greater self-knowledge and authentic confidence.
Now, I feel armed with an invaluable inventory of knowledge and tools to help me cut through the negative noise of life and focus on what matters.
If you’re ready to live your best life from a place of confidence, I could not recommend this course more highly.
It will be the highlight of your week!"
"Caroline’s extensive experience at Executive level across multiple countries combined with her unique coaching approach will afford any executive a powerful opportunity to advance.
She will guide you through a meaningful self awareness journey.
You will emerge wiser, more confident and realistically equipped to advance to that next level of your ambition."
Group Chief Executive, Healthcare
"Caroline is an exceptionally talented coach with a natural ability for perception, understanding and guiding people to achieve their goals. She is extremely professional and takes the time to build a relationship with her clients in order to fully explore their potential and as well as what may be holding them back.
As my professional coach, I highly recommend Caroline to anyone who is looking to expand themselves and their goals both professionally and personally."
Senior Financial Planner, Finance
"I've finished Caroline's Authentic Confidence course feeling excited and confident for the future! Her explanations of neuroscience and why my brain reacts in certain ways in certain situations gives a whole new perspective, and then she provides an extensive toolbox of tools to help deal with those situations.
I love the format of weekly training and homework to learn and then put that learning into practice.
I have set myself some new professional and personal goals and I can't wait to update the confidence network group we've formed on how I've achieved my new goals!"
Director, Investment Banking
"This Authentic Confidence course is the first time I have even attempted to do anything like this and it came around at the perfect time. My work situation was not good and I was not thinking clearly about it - this course has made me think.
I now have a plan, my confidence has been restored and I see a way forward. Thank you Caroline!
I will have no problem recommending this course to anyone else I know that I think will benefit from it You really can teach an old girl new tricks :)
PS I have now been offered a new project within the same company"
Contract Administrator, Logistics
"I found the course provided really good understanding of why our brain does what it does, and an arsenal of tools to convert the negatives into positives. sometimes when you read about things in isolation they don't mean much but if you truly understand how the brain works, it makes a lot of sense."
Senior Manager, Management Consulting
"I cannot recommend this awesome lady enough! I started her 6 week Authentic Confidence Course in what I thought was a pretty happy place (and it was) but I finished it with so much excitement for how much more I can achieve, both personally and professionally.
Caroline has an amazing coaching style and incredible knowledge in areas such as neuroscience that really helped me understand why I react in certain ways to certain situations.
Even more importantly she taught simple tricks and daily habits that have left me feeling more resilient. It was fun too!"
Partnership Director, Consultancy & Digital Services
"I have been using Caroline’s services for quite some time now. She is extremely professional, flexible and passionate about what she does. Knowledgeable with great listening skills. The support and advice she has given me along the way is second to none. Thank you Caroline!"
“The content, theory and care showed by Caroline was phenomenal.
It was a space I could share my vulnerabilities, have retrospection into events in my life that made me who I am.
Now I am equipped with tools to reframe my energy and mindset in order to focus on my career goals and harness my creativity to solve complex problems.
Most importantly, I took away that the value of self-care is the golden thread to live a purposeful life. I was able to harness a belief in myself, which makes me feel accomplished and knowing that I have the ability to impact others in my life.”
"As a coach, Caroline has an intuitive knack of giving effective guidance through important decisions and challenges. She employs a raft of useful tools which help analyse one's current situation and values, but ultimately it is her natural ability to get to the core of the matter which I found especially helpful. Caroline is an excellent listener and naturally motivating. Sessions with her are not only invaluable but also illuminating and fun!"
Senior Manager, Marketing
"Caroline's Authentic Coaching course came at the perfect time as I ventured into start up world. Having world in the corporate world for many years it's hard to switch career, environments, take risks, step out your comfort zone.
Caroline's evidence based research, insights and tools were invaluable for me at this time. I was demonstrating imposter syndrome tendencies left, right and centre.
The tools and hacks that Caroline provided absolutely helped me break down blocks, believe in myself and move my business forward. I secured funding during the course and truly believe I can make this happen. Thank you Caroline. You rock!"

Caroline combines behavioural research & science with real life examples to deconstruct thought processes and learned habits which may be holding you back in your career and life. Throughout her course you will undertake a series of practical exercises which support growth and 'breakthroughs' as your future goals and direction become clear.
Overall she is very approachable, hands-on and informative. I felt fully supported at all stages of the coaching process."

life altering realisations and changes - work related and also in my personal life.”
Group Risk Manager
”The course designed and led by Caroline has helped me to not apologise for who I am and what I believe in and not be shy to give myself the permission to take the necessary actions that allow me be the best version of myself i.e. go meet my girlfriends for coffee, exercise every day, plan holidays and say 'no' to my manager.”
Regional Manager, Healthcare
“Thank you Caroline for a great 6 week journey to my new inner and outer self.
Your demeanour put me at such ease to work through the programme to identify, reflect and aspire with judgement.”

”The course was an excellent way to understand the factors which have limited my confidence in the past and taught me techniques and perspective to better develop my confidence and performance in the future.
The group discussions and pairings were a fantastic way to meet and work with other colleagues in our group. Thank you Caroline”
I noticed a big shift in my self confidence after completing Caroline’s course. The course is delivered in a way that is simple, easy to digest and really helped me understand what was preventing me reaching my full potential. Caroline has given me some great tips to manage all the different challenges that come my way and I will be forever grateful for her all practical advice and guidance.
“A big thank you to you, Caroline!
This course came just in the right moment for me and will have a long lasting effect on my life."
“Caroline is amazing and the course is not only inspiring but exceptional in changing personal perspective and improving your mindset.”
"Where do I start… The initial purpose for joining the course was to change my mindset of feeling inadequate for the role I was performing. What I gained from the course was so much more.
Authentic Confidence gave me a strong sense of who I am as an individual. It has provided structure and a feeling of empowerment. It reinforced what I view as my strengths, helped me address my perceived weaknesses, and made me realise what is important to me.
The group setting, whilst intimidating initially when opening up, is a huge part of overcoming the doubt I had. The support you gain from the team is nothing shy of exceptional. Each of us sharing this experience had very different reasons to be involved. Caroline gave each of us an array of tools to deal with the various challenges that had been in our way.
It has and will continue to benefit the way I operate."
Global Account Manager, Computer & Network Security
“If you have never experienced a *5 star* personal or
professional coach before, here she is!”
"The Authentic Confidence course is an excellent investment. The perfect mix of theory, real life examples and support from a group of diversified thinkers. Excellent content, theory and helpful workbooks.
I was most impressed by how Caroline was able to break down barriers and build trust within the group in such a short time which enabled the group to be vulnerable and to grow and learn from each other’s experiences. This was a highlight.
However, I think what really sets this course apart is the fact that Caroline has walked the corporate walk and she gets it.. no HR fluff.. facts, figures and a genuine understanding of the challenges of succeeding at a high level in the corporate world based on real life experience.
Chief of Staff to the CEO, Resources Industry
“Caroline's course is a well-designed journey of self-discovery for people who think they know themselves.
You may just find your authentic self during this journey.”
”The course was excellent and offered me the opportunity to learn at my own pace, and gave me practical examples and actions I could implement.
The facilitation and sharing was very well planned and expertly coordinated.
Great balance of experiential and evidence backed learning opportunity - thank you”
"Caroline coached me remotely through 6 x 1-on-1 sessions at a transitional period of my career. She took the time to understand my position and challenged my thinking each time through pointed questions and curated exercises. Throughout my dealings with her, she remained positive and encouraging, always providing unique insights for discussion and raising thoughtful considerations. I am very impressed with her ability to put a positive spin on situations, and am thankful for her coaching - regardless of how uncomfortable I felt at times in trying to search inwards for answers! Her follow up contributions between sessions were instrumental in assisting me find my balance.
Trader, Resources Industry
“This course has given me a clearer understanding of the impact of psychological safety on one's ability to show up authentically, to voice dissent & bravely share new ideas.
Most importantly, how this links to a company's ability to innovate, attract and retain talent.
Personally, I have gained an elevated sense of the need for boundary setting at work.
I'm also far more aware of my need and ability to exercise agency and self-determination.”
Head, Product Development
“Sessions were well planned and thought provoking.
A safe space to do introspection and be vulnerable with other ladies that have similar experiences as yourself. Seeing the benefit of what I have learnt is not just helping me at work but also with my family and kids.”
"I have had the good fortune of having Caroline as my mentor throughout my past eight years of my career. Her coaching, communication method, thought processes and delivery are sublime and when put into practice it really makes a difference to your daily challenges not only within a business environment but also improves your life across all aspects.
I highly recommend Brain Powered Coaching and all courses offered as it will be of great benefit to all those that partake.

The opportunity to talk in depth with other women at similar points in their careers and confidence journeys was also extremely valuable.”

The tips, hacks and home growth exercises are genuinely useful and have made in a difference in also how I approach both home and work life. Huge thanks to Caroline, she does an amazing job!”
“I've attended various courses about confidence previously - usually they offer some sort of insight at the time but are soon forgotten. This course is different - it's not only informative and practical but leads to insights at a much more profound level, and gives participants the tools for change that will last long after the course is finished. Thank you!”

It provided me with simple and effective tools and skills to enhance my own personal journey of continuous growth. In particular the work around inner critic, imposter syndrome, and limiting beliefs was very valuable and I have continued to read more on the topics to enable my growth as a person.”

Stacey – Hospital Manager
“I am extremely grateful for been given the opportunity to partake in this course as it was valuable. We take things for granted and don't realise the positive and powerful impact it can have e.g. completing a gratitude journal, repeating positive affirmations, mindfulness.
The tools I have learnt and have applied already is really empowering and can be life-changing. I have mentioned my take-aways and my commitments in the last workshop and know that its up to me to ensure the outcome I desire.
I can have a growth mindset and liberate myself from my fears and inner critic and seem how different things can be, how much more confidence I will have to deal with situations and have the work-life balance I am striving for.
I am positive and energetic and thank you Caroline for imparting and sharing your experiences and allowing us to feel free to be ourselves and share our experiences and grow. As I mentioned in the course, one of the points I heard in one of the video clips "vulnerability is not a sign of weakness and it is okay not to be okay" does resonate and I will allow myself to ask for support when needed.
Thank you once again for all the learnings, reflection and growth."

I really did think the 121 breakout sessions with my buddy would take me out my comfort zone, they did, but at great benefit. I think I hit lucky with my buddy as I really enjoyed our interaction and looked forward to it, each week. Caroline and all the awesome ladies really did make this a very enjoyable experience. "

“ Joined this course after hearing Caroline on Ladies Finance Club. I found it to be both a simple and profound, science based course that you could work through at your own pace. Reinforced by live zooms, where one could interact with other like-minded people from different countries. Such a positive practical course. Has helped me negotiate and busy stressful workplace with greater understanding and purpose. Now to put it into practice. A really enlightening experience - I can highly recommend."

A lot of the concepts presented in this course were new to me, but guided by all the tools, tips and tricks, it was easy to understand and adopt them into my daily life. The course is really well structured, broken down into bite sized sections that can be spread out over a period of time to suit everyone's schedule. The tools are diverse, fun and really easy to implement! I actually learned quite a lot about myself and the human brain in general! Thank you Caroline, I look forward to more courses like this in the near future! I encourage everyone to take it and I couldn't recommend it any higher! "
"The last six weeks undertaking the Authentic Confidence course with Caroline and some amazing high performers ladies from our company has been very rewarding. Each session builds on the last and the homegrowth just helped to further reinforce and consolidate our learning. I have incorporated into my daily routine, my positive affirmations, completion of my gratitude diary and meditation.
So easy to do and confidence boosting.
The buddy sessions were so motivating too, and I’ve gained a new friend in the process. Special thanks to Caroline though who is inspiring and really does take the time to reach out to her clients to make sure we are supported. I would most definitely recommend this course. "
" Caroline Brewin has been a business coach of mine for a number of years. She has assisted me navigate various leadership roles in banking and finance both in Australia and internationally in this time along with my own entrepreneurial pursuits. In 2020 I completed her group Confidence course. This was such a game changing experience in my life. The group setting proved to be so powerful and Caroline is a natural, dedicated and talented leader who is supportive and intuitive. The neuroscience knowledge that she brings to the table along with her own accomplished corporate background and authentic approach is a formidable combination. I cannot recommend her individual coaching and group confidence courses highly enough. "
