Founder of B U Girl and B U Mum - Life Coaching

Carole Buttiglieri is a Mind Detox Therapist, Life Coach, Mentor and Meditation Teacher, wife and mother to 3 of her own children.



Through my work with tween and teen girls and mothers, I have witnessed mother & daughter relationships heal, families restored, self-worth owned and celebrated, anti-anxiety/depressants thrown out and most importantly girls and women giving themselves permission to love and accept themselves for who they are.

Mothers becoming more accepting of their own life and finding a new sense of self worth.

How do girls do this?

By letting go of who they thought they were or thought they had to be. By observing negative self-talk, healing broken hearts, childhood hurts and limiting beliefs that we all carry unnecessarily in a bid to please others so as to be accepted.

"I believe if we can educate our girls at a young age about who they are, how their minds work, what a healthy friendship looks like, how to make good choices when it comes to peer pressure and not feeling the need to people please, how to stop the negative inner critic, how to like what she sees when she looks in her mirror, then, I believe girls will make better choices that will make them happy, powerful young individuals. They will then lead by empowering others to live a great life as well as their own."

How do mothers do this?

By letting go of who they thought they were/are being or think they have to be. By observing negative self-talk, healing broken hearts, childhood hurts and limiting beliefs that we all carry unnecessarily in a bid to please others so as to be accepted. By being the role model her daughter needs her to be so that she can step into her true self not, what her mum wants her daughter to be because as a young girl, she didn't have the opportunities.

This is where resistance and drama begins with our daughters when they become teenagers.

Having raised her own three children and spending most of her time with women and other mums and girls, she understands all the complexities of a mothers life.


"A mothers past as well as her current life circumstances greatly impacts her parenting journey now. Once her daughter has grown up, it's too late to say "I should have".............

These days,mums can and should take back control of their mindset as it impacts the whole family.

The pressure is real but you get to choose and I'm great at helping you do that."

Carole infuses lots of love, humour and a relentless stand for you, into her coaching work.

Hi Carole, I was thinking about you yesterday, the last few weeks have been absolutely great for me. Nothings happened, I just feel stable and able to face the world.Im so grateful for having met you & being able to get your help.I've had so much good change and excitement that I have booked into a Yoga course and am very excited. With your help I am such a different person and see the world as it is now.

Thank you Carole for a lovely weekend away at our Retreat. It was rejuvenating ,invigorating, relaxing and lots and lots of fun. You made it very special (you are truly talented in your profession) as well as being such a beautiful person. and despite the miserable weather when we arrived on the Friday it didn't dampen the spirit of the weekend. The highlight for me was our early morning walk in the rain on Saturday. But when the sun miraculously appeared during our session , it was perfect.

Dear Carole, well its only been a couple of  days since the retreat but thankfully the "good feelings" are very much still with me. I want to thank you for my wonderful experience. I know it sounds a bit silly but there is a definite connection beyond usual & I feel very lucky. So I appreciate the story of the Kookaburra Carole,and again I want to thank you for your teachings. You are a special lady, truly, you are an important guide. Keep well,
