About InnovationWorks

I am here to inspire rebel sprit in my clients so that they access and use their power to work with their best intentions for their future, relationships and projects. By rebel spirit I mean thinking and acting differently, and daring to do so. By power, I mean that we all have power over, under and in relation to ourselves and others around us, that we may not access, and stepping into that and realising it brings perspective energy and motivation. Best intentions is many layered. Firstly recognising our own best intentions lie behind even the bits of ourselves we find most difficult, and recognising the good intentions gives us room to grow. And most importantly, our good intentions give us a direction to travel. We have dreams and intentions that represent the best of us, for the world, for others, and in using our power to good affect. Getting it touch with these produces energy for forward motion, powerfully and with that thinking differently spirit. I am a Coaching Psychologist, so psychological models underpin what we do, and I also know that fun and creative ways of exploring you and your journey and visions of where you want to be make a difference. I am extremely experienced, have been doing this a long time, have worked with many many people in many different situations. I work with proven models such as CBT, solution focused, creative visioning, values and purpose and in building relationships that matter. I help capture the emotional issues that sit underneath the development so my clients have choices. I support people in career choices, career progression, managing teams at work, and I also do team work. I encourage trial and action as a way of learning. I am passionate about human development, and am plugging a gap for many about their own development. We are never taught how, so using a coach to learn how makes great sense. I look forward to working with you on whatever change you want to make to get to doing more of what energises you and gives you purpose.

Gabriela Z.'s review on May 05, 2020

Kathryn is very friendly and intuitive as well as professional. Her in depth experience and knowledge is enabling her to apply a wide array of techniques to help me explore and find out the answers I need in order to change perspective and tackle the issues I have come to ask for help with. She is encouraging and non judgemental and I enjoy my weekly sessions. We both prepare and make notes to work off during, after and before our sessions. I have had a great experience so far and things are moving in the right direction. I will gladly recommend her and her great approach to my friends who would like to tackle any issues, create new habits, and break with long-standing damaging beliefs. Gabriela Zilkha

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
I work on an hourly basis typically. Some coaching is suitable to a quick deep dive of 4-6 sessions. Working every 2 weeks. But for many to really find that rebel spirit, unleash their power, connect with their best intentions, make behaviour changes that come from the inside and work towards an amazing future, it is better to have 10-12 sessions over 6-9 months.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
I have an initial consultation that is free to identify what the issues are that the client wants to work on. We contract around the confidentiality and agree frequency and number of sessions, and agree times to start out with. I work very hard so that we feel like equal partners in the exploration of their world and future. Payment is normally for an agreed number of sessions up front, on a monthly or bimonthly basis. We normally agree how much they want to be challenged too, or whether being heard is important to begin with. I have to judge their pace, and where they are.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
I have a lot of training that is really valuable.I am trained in compassionate communication where we really see best intentions behind actions, and I believe that is invaluable. I often use neuroscience in my coaching to explain some of the phenomenon that people experience and how we can control our brains to some extent. I am highly trained as a coaching psychologist, and this sits underneath my work. I am also trained in business (Insead MBA) and have worked inside many businesses from finance, to consulting, to training, to marketing, so can really help people with careers or understanding the challenges they are having at work. As a trained coaching supervisor, I have a breath of sight around clients that can be very helpful.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Ask yourself, can I speak openly to this person? Am I gaining some insights? Are they really listening to me? You do not need an expert in your field, but you do need someone who is going to get you and where you are, and gently challenge you to do more. You want to feel like you are an equal, they are not a teacher, they are a challenger who is going to help you access your own resources, so not only do you benefit now, but can become your own inner coach.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
Why do they coach? What are their favourite clients to coach? and see if it feels true or trotted out.
What are some good examples of past customers?
I have worked with several hundred clients over the last 10 years. I love the moment of ignition of enthusiasm, and seeing oneself in a more caring way. I love the internal and external changes that are possible. I have worked on career change, making current work work better, changing behaviours and having impact for success, managing around stress, anxiety, relationships, weight loss and health. I also work with social enterprises, and larger businesses on executive development.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
I am working with London Business School on their MBA program, and looking at development plans through coaching for their MBAs. We used information from how they interact to design coaching on their development needs from listening, to leading, to perspective taking.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I was in training, and found I was doing a lot of coaching. I was also bothered by some of the leadership models we used in training and wanted to learn the psychology for myself. Psychology is my second degree. From here I was using design thinking for new product development, and thought it would be rather good for 'new me' development and found I was coaching.
