Take Control of Your Future

“The best day of your life is the one in which you decide your life is your own.

No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame.

The gift is yours, it is an amazing journey and you alone are responsible for the quality of it.

This is the day your life really begins.”

I'm Caroline Brennan, founder at STRIDE-BEYOND Coaching. I have 25 years’ experience supporting PEOPLE and TEAMS to TRANSITION through CHANGE.

At STRIDE-BEYOND our coaching journeys empower YOU to release YOUR TRUE POTENTIAL by starting with where you truly are TODAY.

We believe coaching is very much a pathway to better awareness, choices and greater fulfilment in your work and personal life.  It is an AMAZING Journey, one that opens up so many inner doors, that can give new and fresh perspectives of ourselves, our working lives, and our goals.

At STRIDE-BEYOND we work with you towards your GOALS or CHANGES, using a WHOLE PERSON approach.

This way of working is based on a set of guiding principles that develops AWARENESS, supports BALANCE in your life and works towards enduring and lasting change.

At STRIDE-BEYOND we are truly PASSIONATE about supporting YOU in a SUSTAINABLE way, for all YOUR FUTURE goals and changes, not just the ones you work on with us.

What we provide is a supportive SPACE for you to THINK and gain new AWARENESS and PERSPECTIVES and the expertise to help you take the action required to move forward. Our journeys START with the reality of where you are TODAY and we work FORWARD from there TOWARDS your FUTURE.

We support you to:

  • DISCOVER and CONNECT you to what holds real VALUE and PURPOSE for you

  • ALIGN your thinking and actions with where you really want to go

  • ACHIEVE the changes you are driving for using our structured step by step pathway, expert coaching and development programmes.  

​What we offer you is a safe space, the expertise to discover the changes you really want to make and the SUPPORT you need to get there.





Building Empathy & Perspective - one team at a time...


Building Self Awareness & Resilience - one step at a time...


Building Purpose and Intent - one individual at a time...


Building Vision, Inspiration and Inclusion ... one project at a time...


Who is coaching for?

If you are committed to change - we can show you how

You are going through a significant change in your life or career, or you have some big decisions or choices to make

You are passionate about a goal or idea and need an independent, supportive sounding board to help get you there

If you are getting started on a venture or new business, finding it challenging to focus on what is important with so many things needing attention.

You feel you want to achieve more. You know you have more potential to tap into, yet you're not sure of where to start and what are your real strengths

You feel something is missing, or you feel a little disconnected from yourself, perhaps a little jaded and cut off. You want to regain your passion and energy for your life where life is flowing through you, not just happening to you.

Teams that want to play to their strengths, build trust, reduce conflict and perform to their best. A self aware team, with high trust improves the bottom line because they are more productive and their energy is aligned with the mission.


How Can Coaching Help you?

Coaching can help you find your balance on the curve of uncertainty and recognise that sometimes it is actually ok to NOT KNOW, not to have it all worked out and to be ok in that SPACE, until you do.

In fact, whether you look at this from an individual perspective or from a team and organisational perspective, we spend a lot of time in this space, as life and business changes from day to day and even moment to moment. When we don't realise this or understand this, it can be hard to find BALANCE. Once we recognise that change is an inevitable part of life, it gives us a new perspective from which to view our world and our business.

Coaching can help you to show up for yourself, take your courage in your hands and take that first little step in the direction of the change you want to make, be it a business goal or a life-long dream.

Coaching can help you set your compass accurately for your GOAL or CHANGE.

Coaching can help you:

  • Work out exactly what you want, sometimes by looking at what you don't want.

  • Get your thinking, your strategies and your action aligned with where you really want to go

  • Work out what you value and what holds real meaning and purpose for you in your life or career.

  • Be more comfortable and confident in the space where change is happening and where you don't yet have all the answers

  • Plan for the goals or changes you want in the future and make a commitment to get there 
  • Look at what is possible, all your options and set realistic targets on how to get there.

  • Reduce team conflict by building awareness and trust within the system you impact

  • Help you with stress reduction, work life balance and building resilience in a changing world.

  • Take the first step and to be at your back when or if you meet a block on the road.

  • Challenge your thinking and hold you accountable to stay the course.

  • By being a confidential sounding board for your worries, concerns and your ideas and provide an expert entirely for you.

  • Gain deeper insights about the way you work, think, show up, lead and interact with the world on a more conscious level.

  • By supporting you to harness all of your TRUE POTENTIAL by highlighting your strengths in the pursuit of your GOALS and DREAMS: your own UNIQUE inner MAGIC!


Am I ready for coaching?

COACHING will work for any PERSON OR TEAM who is COMMITTED and ready AND WILLING TO PUT THE TIME IN to work at this level. This is an investment in the future.

The bottom line: Change will only happen when we change things up for the better. If you change nothing...then nothing changes.

If old patterns and ways of working have blocked your path in the past as an individual, a team or as a business, they will continue to block your path in the future. If you want things to change, improve, move forward, get better, if you want to achieve on the GOALS you say you REALLY want, THEN you are READY.

We can show you how.

SME Business Owner: Male Mid 40's

I jumped at the chance to be coached by Caroline. I have been engaged in the same work situation for over twenty years and even though things are going well for me I am eager to grow and develop further. I find Caroline easy to be open and honest with. I have been introduced to many exercises such as visualisation which help me remain focused on my new goals. Caroline has helped me to tease out what I want to achieve in the next chapter of my life and I feel much clearer
