Career Coaching
S R.'s review on 9 Jun, 2021

I sought Kate’s help while I was in between jobs, to help me overcome insecurities in the job search, as well as find more clarity in what my next career step should be. Through exercises and coaching techniques, she helped me identifying career and life priorities, we set goals together and worked towards them with practical assignments. In between sessions, Kate checked on the progress and always made me feel I could reach out to her whenever I needed. Thanks to Kate, I also learned more about impostor syndrome and how to cope with insecurities and a negative chatterbox. She’s lovely to work with and I highly recommend her.

Ebba L.'s review on 27 May, 2021

Kate is so wonderful to work with, I highly recommend her. She got me to open up and think about things in a way that never occurred to me and helped me to connect the dots in a non-intrusive way. If you are feeling stuck in your career and need help seeing the road again, Kate is your person!

Lanre (.'s review on 8 Mar, 2021

Kate is attentive, thoughtful & prepared. She has great resources in the form of informative & actionable tools to take away and continue to use. It was easy and yet challenging. Probably what I valued the most is that Kate also follows up & checks in with you.

Lucinda F.'s review on 8 Mar, 2021

I would highly recommend Kate as a life coach. I run my own small independent business and at a time when I was really struggling and feeling overwhelmed on what to do and which direction to go in I decided to seek help from Kate. She worked with me to understand exactly what my end goal was but also how to break down tasks into achievable steps. After one coaching session everything felt so much more manageable and less stressful. Since working with Kate my business has grown from strength to strength and I credit Kate with helping me to understand the bigger picture and how to achieve that. I would use Kate again in a heartbeat. Lucinda Forth, Independent therapist.

John B.'s review on 1 Mar, 2021

Kate was an excellent career coach. She structured our sessions really carefully so that I got the most out of them. She thought really carefully about tasks for me to try/carry out in between meetings that would deepen my thinking and/or lead me in potentially new directions. Most importantly, she was warm and humourous. She challenged me in my thinking without me ever feeling I was being told what to do. Thank you, Kate!

Shannon L.'s review on 22 Feb, 2021

It was an absolute joy working with Kate! Kate helped me realise where I felt I needed to add value in my life personally aside from work. She assisted me with understanding what I needed to do and nothing was ever pushed upon me, as I feel often people force ‘motivational talks’ as a form of self-development which did not work with me but Kate took the time to understand how I felt and what could aid my development.

Marina H.'s review on 30 Jan, 2021

Working with Kate was a pleasure! She is clearly very knowledgeable and insightful and her communication style and personality puts you at ease. Kate helped me discover so many things about myself and overcome several limiting beliefs and mind blocks that I had ingrained in my head. Working with Kate empowered me to make changes I needed in my career and personal life and I already reaped some benefits. If you are still hesitating whether to invest in career coaching with Kate - don't! It will be the best investment in yourself you will make!

Shoina H.'s review on 24 Dec, 2020

Working with Kate was a calming experience. I felt very uncertain about my career path amongst other things in life and Kate showed me ways to focus, be structured in my thoughts and look into myself for the knowledge I already had within me. She has helped me to develop methods that will sustain me over the years in my career, but they can also be translated into useful ways to cope with day to day life. I felt it was easy to open up to Kate, she has a caring, calming manner to ease you into difficult conversations, but keeps you focused on the topic in hand too. When your struggling she pushes you just the right amount in the right way for you to delve in and get those answers, or helps with tools that you can use to think over the following days. I would recommend Kate to anyone who has doubts about their chosen career or to help with life's journey in difficult times - thanks Kate!

Kayley v.'s review on 10 Dec, 2020

She was great sending a lot of forms to fill in before every session. Also her recommendations on books were great! Kate gives a lot of info per email as well which was super helpful.

Meet Kate

Does this sound familiar? - Are you in the middle of a career rut with no clear solution in sight? - Perhaps the absence of a good life-work balance is leaving you unfocused and causing anxiety? - Or you know exactly what you want to do but need a plan and support to get there? - Ready to start your own business but feeling overwhelmed by it all? How to solve it? Don't despair! I was stuck in a job in which I was desperately unhappy in yet terrified of losing and stayed stuck there for 3 years! Finally I built up the courage and confidence to retrain as a coach and I have never looked back. Now I work with my clients to do the same by by empowering them to find and follow their career dreams as well as live the life they crave. Who are you Coach Kate?! I’m Coach Kate and I’m here to make your Mondays feel just as great as Fridays! No matter the day of the week, my goal is to get you fired up with confidence and raring to go and live life with passion. Whether your career is floundering or you’re seeking a pay rise or you simply want more out of life but lack clarity about how to go and get it, I will help you see the light at the end of the tunnel and find the ideal solutions. I believe that experience counts for a lot – I was once stuck in a job that no longer motivated me and this left me deflated and depleted. I wanted to do something different but couldn’t put my finger on what needed to change. When I discovered coaching it lifted me out of the doldrums and brought me back from burnout. Coaching enabled me to dig deeper and figure out what was missing in my life and what I needed to do about it. Cut to four years later, and I’m now a full qualified Personal and Business Coach eager to help others see what’s holding them back and how they can move towards their goals. I’ve coached people from different walks of life – top-ranking police personnel through to CEO's of top-tier companies. My coaching sessions involve helping people figure out their genuine passions, increasing their self-esteem and confidence, managing their work and life better, and overcoming their inner doubts. I also help companies look after the well being of their employees through bespoke talks, webinars and workshops focused on resilience, stress management and switching off. I draw on my background as an actor, an improviser and 8 years of building up a tiny company to becoming a thriving organisation. No matter what roadblocks you encounter or challenges you face, I will work with you to harness your strengths and create a realistic action plan that will help you accomplish your goals. I will be your greatest champion and supporter but also your challenger to ensure you are making the right decisions for you and your life. How does it all work? We start with a complementary Chemistry Chat to learn more about each other and to delve deeper into what you really want. Once we have ascertained that I’m the right fit for you, we can agree on what your coaching journey and programme will look like; how many sessions, how regularly we will speak and, crucially, what our end goal is! All of my coaching programmes include weekly check-ins, full bespoke development tools, a Review Session towards the end of our journey and my personal recommendations of books, podcasts, talks etc. to enhance your coaching experience. Great! Work with me and you’ll not only discover what you really want from your life and but how to get and we will ensure you do! I can't wait to work with you too.

How to appeal to everyone and make it relevant for all of the team as well as being in line with the business mission & vision and of course to keep to budget. What was our outcome? A uniquely tailored bespoke annual programme of well being talks, workshops and activities that addressed the main concerns of the business including: - Resilience building - Stress management - Nutrition - Physical fitness An initial meeting with the HR team led to a proposal created in 48 hours and the first 1 hour talk was run within a month.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I was stuck in a job that no longer motivated me yet I was terrified to lose it as I thought I had no way out. Originally I trained to be a performer and then 'fell into' the events world where I helped grow a small business to be highly successful and profitable. However, I had no idea what to do with my career and crucially had no confidence in what I was capable of. ​ As I retrained as a Coach I discovered what I really wanted to help people to make significant changes in their own lives and careers to be just as happy at work as at home and to improve their courage, confidence & motivation so they can do what they dream of.
