I was recommended to work with Kate through a mutual contact/friend. I was looking for someone who understood the fashion business and more importantly would inspire me to take my small business to a new level.
I found Kate to be a fantastic listener - she has endless patience to listen to my weekly ramblings about the latest news in my business. She is able quickly to distil down some key messages to help me focus better and to realise my priorities.
Kate is extremely adaptable to a clients preferred ways of working - for example using voice notes on WhatsApp for updates. Also adapting our sessions to an hour rather than 90 minutes again suited me. Kate went the extra mile to accommodate my wishes.
She is insightful in her communication and was quickly able to ascertain my key strengths which gave me a confidence boost. She reminded me of my strengths on an ongoing basis - it's like having your biggest fan cheering you on from the wings. This is for me what I will remember and value the most.
Today I feel more confident knowing my strengths and the way the business can organically grow as a result of me continuing to be the authentic me. People buy people - this fact became more and more relevant as Kate and I worked together.
Thank you Kate for your tremendous support.

"Before working with Kate I was feeling somewhat overwhelmed, lost and uncertain about where I was going with my new business. Doubts were creeping into my ideas and I was letting other people's comments negatively effect me. I wasn't sure how I could move forward or progress and my confidence was low.
Right from the outset being coached by Kate enabled me to pinpoint the problem areas and work through them to find the right solutions for myself.
My experience of being coached has helped me in many ways:
- To value myself
- The importance of prioritizing self-care and ME time
- To be confident in myself, my ability and my business
- How to use my time more effectively and efficiently
- To take control, make decisions and act on them
I think overall the greatest difference from being coached is gaining the clarity and awareness of what I need to do to achieve my business goals and knowing I am far more resilient and have the tools to be able to cope with any challenges I come across. I am very excited to be launching my brand very soon."
Sharon - Fashion Design Consultant/Clothing Brand Founder
"Before working with Kate my challenges were creating a new self-employed lifestyle that complemented family commitments, career interests and put my own well-being first.
Since working together, the results have been I have achieved clarity on my values and priorities and established a happy balance of work and fun, flexing my sense of what is possible, both personally and professionally. I have been more confident in creating stronger boundaries in my personal life which have helped improve my relationships.
I know going forward I will continue to value my own well-being more highly and set aside more time for myself. On reflection taking time to reflect and putting my own well-being at the heart of all my future plans."
“Since working with Kate I have seen a tremendous difference in both my business and personal life. Kate has coached me on how to work on my business rather than in it and to attract the right type of clients which has meant an increase in profit of at least 30%. This has given me a solid base and the confidence to continue to grow the business even through difficult times.
Thanks to Kate I have also managed to work on my own health and wellbeing which gives me more energy and a positive outlook. If I am ruminating over a problem, whether business or personal, I now working with Kate will help me to find the right course of action and help me move on. I highly recommend Kate as a business and personal coach. Working with her has made such a difference to me in so many ways.”
“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 and I would highly recommend working with her.”
“I came to Kate because I wanted to help in setting my fees. I also wanted help to have the confidence to have that initial call with potential clients and I didn’t have the confidence in my own value, my skills or my self-worth and how much my services were worth to my clients. Having worked with Kate I have now got a series of fees and I am comfortable when a potential client contacts me. I do not now rush in to offer discounts so I feel completely comfortable and my business is thriving. Thank you Kate. It’s been brilliant. You are a great coach.”
“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.
“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 coach. 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.”
