About Carla McLean
I love to empower people. I have seen and experienced first-hand the power of holistic therapies, life coaching, yoga and learning.
My name is Carla and I am the proud owner of Soul to Sole Wellbeing.
I am grateful to have work that I adore, I am passionate about and that feeds my Soul. I have learnt so much about myself on my journey over the last nine years. I am passionate about self discovery, self learning and self development and that will never change,
My own experiences have enabled me to achieve a greater empathy with others and their experiences. I am thankful to all my teachers along the way and I believe if you serve your purpose, your purpose will serve you.
Namaste, Carla 💖.
I understand what it is like to feel stressed in all areas of life and how it can affect your health. I have seen and experienced first-hand the power of holistic therapies, life coaching, learning and yoga. Individually and together in the form of retreats.
I have worked in many stressful environments. Including eleven years in the corporate world of recruitment in London – a job I loved. However, it did demand a high degree of energy, dedication and of course time to ensure success of targets. As a result, I used to have regular treatments of Reflexology and Reiki to help me relax and keep my performance at work at optimum level.
This being said, I would have personally benefited from a corporate wellness initiative including coaching, for life balance if it had been available to me at the time. I know now both are formidable tools that I benefit from each and every day, and I am hugely passionate about them.
WHAT MAKES MY HEART SING?
Clients that I see for Holistic treatments or Yoga classes invariably leave with less pain or discomfort, feeling more balanced, relaxed, and positive with an inner sense of wellbeing.
After a coaching session, to see clients leave with more understanding and self-belief in themselves, armed with a self-empowering plan of action for their needs and circumstances is amazing, and hugely rewarding.
One of the most rewarding parts of my job as a Life Coach, Yoga Teacher and Holistic Therapist is to witness how even one treatment, class or coaching session can encourage clients to have more self-compassion. This can range from drinking extra water. Finding the time to have a relaxing bath, a walk on the beach, speaking more gently and being kinder to themselves, or just buying a bunch of flowers.
With this in mind Wellness Retreats had always been a dream of mine. To achieve the above on a longer, more in depth scale for people and to help them along their Soul journey. The last few years have seen that dream come true and I am delighted to be hosting international retreats.
Being able to facilitate clients’ good health and growth in mind, body and spirit is a privilege. I am extremely grateful, and honoured to play a role in their journeys,be it for an hour or a week.
Carla McLean - My Journey
I had two amazing Yoga practises with Carla in the beautiful Santa Teresa, Costa Rica! From the many classes I attended, hers was the one that made me smile the most and actually feel the joy that yoga should bring. The little Reiki elements were also great and Carla even gave my friend a little gift before she left. Thank you very much Carla!
I highly recommend an IET, Integrated Energy Therapy session with Carla! I had a lovely experience. The time, energy and love she dedicates to each client and session is admirable and the few IET sessions I had have been instrumental in my healing journey. Carla’s passion and gift for helping others shows in the quality of her work, and in the lives of those she helps.
Carla is a true healer! I highly recommend her services – whatever they are, wherever she is! She is great at what she does – Yoga, Reflexology, Coaching, Sound Healing -all of it. She is fantastic at giving massages too. I love her honest, cheerful, up-beat, encouraging, and positive energy. She also has endless energy! Carla is a loving, kind, honest and dedicated healer that truly knows how to ‘read’ energy in order to facilitate healing! I was lucky to have met her in Hawaii at a health retreat she helped organise and run. She was very busy in the retreat, and worked day and night never complaining. Always smiling and ready to help! Carla is dedicated to her craft and clients and is sincere and gifted!
My experience with Carla has been incredible. I have done remote and one to one treatments with her and I felt so renewed afterwards. I was also thrilled to take part in her Vision Board Workshop with my daughter. Carla guided us and helped us manifest our goals into reality. Any time I see Carla my mood is raised. Her energy and love fills the room and her smile and laughter is infectious. I highly recommend Carla.
I enjoyed an amazing massage by Carla last month. She found all the places in my shoulders and back that were the most sore and needed that attention. She also gave me an Indian head massage and reflexology treatment that nearly put me to sleep! It was so relaxing! My body was so overdue for a massage, I am sure it was a lot of work for Carla. I appreciate all the effort she put in to help me get back on track with my self care routine.
Carla is the best! She is so amazing at what she does and creates a calming and healing space. I had a massage treatment as well as IET and reflexology with Carla at the 8 day Rebirth and Refresh Retreat in Hawaii and it was bliss. I felt so safe and relaxed and I felt like I was on a cloud after the sessions. She is very knowledgeable and experienced and truly cares about you and your healing journey. I can’t wait to see her again!
I attended the Rebirth and Refresh Retreat in Hawaii last month with my mother and sister. Soul to Sole Wellbeing was an organiser and active practitioner in this retreat and led an intimate group through deep restorative practises and treatments in a very healing setting. My family benefited greatly from this retreat and came home with new skill sets for a healthier body and mind! The retreat was both professional and accessible and I look forward to the next one planned.
I attended Carla for Reflexology which was wonderful. I was left totally relaxed and felt like I was walking on air. Carla really knows her stuff about Reflexology and about the essential oils she uses. She was really kind and gifted me some of her homemade foot balm which was wonderful and made me feel like I was in a spa at home. Carla is a beautiful person inside and out and I have no hesitation in recommending her.
Carla gave me an IET distance healing and it was very personal, powerful and spiritual. Carla is a very generous and gracious person and she is able to connect on a very deep level. Carla also gives Online Healing and meditation with IET and she guides the participants through a beautiful session with her warm voice. I would definitely recommend Soul to Sole wellbeing.
Carla is a very knowledgeable and versatile therapist. I benefited tremendously from her Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Massage treatments – along with just having good chats. I can’t wait for the next one.
