About Kate Darbyshire Evans

Prior to qualifying as a coach I had over 20 years experience in the highly competitive and demanding world of fashion, as a Board Director in Design and Development. Having always worked in, and with small businesses, I understand the unique challenges they present to leaders, managers and employees. Managing a small business can be very stressful, isolating and the responsibilities are great.

I have coached leaders, managers and their employees as well as sole traders to build their resilience and encouraging them to put wellbeing at the centre of their business.

I also give talk on my own experience of overcoming adversity and and building resilience and write articles on resilience and wellbeing that are featured in Psychologies magazine.

Qualified to post graduate level as a business and personal coach with one of the UK’s leading training institutions, Barefoot Coaching, I have been practicing as a resilience and wellbeing coach for nearly 10 years at Finer Thinking.
