Hi, it's me, Caroline VK
I'm 30 and originally from Germany but for the past six years I've called London home. Caromino Coach is an absolute passion project of mine and the result of many years of soul-searching and self-discovery that ultimately led me to training as a Transformational Coach and Mindfulness Teacher.
In my coaching programme I'm sharing with you some of the tools and techniques that helped me get to where I am today. In fact they are still very much part of my life and help me feel more fulfilled and balanced every day. I designed the programme because I wish something like it had existed when I needed some direction. I know how much it would have helped me on my Camino and I hope it will help you on yours. I can't wait to work with you and see where our journey takes us - it's bound to be an exciting adventure.

Why Caromino Coach?
The name is inspired by walking the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage in Spain. Caromino is a mishmash of Caro (that’s me!) and Camino. Camino is Spanish for journey, route or path. We are all on a Camino but can feel lost at times or have reached a crossroads, pondering which turn to take. With today’s constant pressures to “do more, be more, achieve more” it is easy to lose sight of the journey. We get stuck in auto-pilot or focus on an end destination that seems unreachably far away, forgetting that all we need to do is set one foot in front of the other and then little by little we get there.
I’m here to help you navigate your Camino
