Kate has been great to work with as a business coach. I have benefited from working with her over the years but more importantly so has my company and my senior team. She has been great to work with as she is always inspiring and uplifting as well as ensuring we focus on taking the right path ahead.

Kate's ability to listen to her clients with rapt attention, to build a relationship of trust and rapport from the onset and to enable a client feel at ease with their own thoughts, combined with her pragmatic approach of inviting the client to look at what works well for them, rather than focusing on the problem at hand, are pivotal criteria which define her as a highly skilled Lifecoach. Her warmth and elegant grasp of dialogue- structures is infused with asking well-formed questions. This is what sets her apart when working with individuals, be this 1:1, or within a company-structure. She quickly helps clients get to the nub of an issue, by guiding them to find and apply their own solutions. Clients who are considering working with Kate will be impressed with her integrity, dedication and professionalism

Kate is an inspiration to work with, and has encouraged and helped me to develop on both a Business and personal level, with her excellent coaching and guidance skills. She has an intuitive ability to see beyond facts and detail and is great fun to be around whilst doing so. I regard Kate very highly, she is a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend working with her

Working with Kate helped me to instigate change through an improved understanding of myself: my hopes, fears, aspirations and importantly, my goals and values. I have learnt how to play to my strengths and confront my fears. Having a better understanding of who I am and what is important to me, has helped me to better articulate my decisions and stick by these. Coaching requires honesty and commitment - to achieve these, one needs support and I couldn't have asked for a more supportive, genuine and caring coach than Kate. I felt heard, understood and never judged. Thank you Kate for all you have done to empower me to get to where I am today

When I met Kate I was burnt out, suffering from the physical, mental and emotional effects of long-term stress. I found myself “misplaced” in an organisation where my key skills and attributes were being overlooked and my work undervalued. I was stuck in a professional rut and needed someone I could trust to help me find a way forward. Genuine, empathic and hugely empowering, Kate helped me turn my life around. I began to challenge negative thoughts and beliefs, focus on my key strengths and innate resources, and use mindfulness to promote greater well-being and resilience. Kate is a formidable mentor and coach who will help you develop the tools you need to weather any storm.

I’ve been working with Kate for a few years now and really appreciate her calm and friendly approach, together with the ability to challenge and take me out of my comfort zone when necessary. Somehow she manages to bring out what is the most important thing in my life right now (whether business or personal) and guide me to work out my preferred outcome along with the steps to get me there. We focus a lot on building up resilience and well being to bring about positive change and to future proof my business and self-care. After each session I feel a new sense of enthusiasm and look forward to reporting back on my achievements in the next one.
