Testimonials From Clients

"Kate really helped me give structure to both help with our organizational purpose but my own individual purpose and how that can help me talk to others, how it can help conflicts between purpose and action and help others as we go through the change curve" CEO Banking Executive Client 2021

"Kate takes the time to listen and coaches in a way that makes you think about how others may perceive you or a situation. A valuable safe place to talk through some of the day to day issues and make longer term plans. Listens and asks the right questions" COO Executive Coaching Client 2021

Kate was absolutely fantastic and I found the sessions with her extremely valuable. She is a wonderful listener, was sensitive to how I was feeling on the day but also open and honest. I have been able to think back to these sessions in my day to day which has really helped me to perform better. Leadership Coaching Client PIR 2021

Kate took time to understand me, she showed empathy but also really challenged me and my perspectives, encouraging me look from other points of view and explore ways to adapt accordingly. There was no 'telling' from Kate she just asked the right questions, at the right time.

I found Kate engaging, patient and helpful. She was able to coach the answer rather than tell, she was engaging from the off and I found her very comfortable to talk to. Kate was always prepared for our meetings and provided good structure and materials. I would highly recommend her!

It's been hard at times but so worth it-the feedback symbolises the progress we’ve made over the past 6 months or so on the Project, and the fact that one of our key stakeholders is recognising a mindset shift is absolutely brilliant. Team Coaching Client 2021

"Kate's style and approach was wonderful. The creative techniques that she used to explore more about concerns and feelings left me with key insights on how I can overcome them" Supervision Client 2021

"Having an independent individual to open up to and then play back to me the issues and hang ups I had helped me see the areas of success to build on and those that needed further attention. I gained confidence that I had tried the right things between sessions and that the impacts were noticeable". Executive Coaching Client 2021

All sessions even the early ones when I was skeptical have been rewarding. Kate has been a joy to work with and steered me through my own self awareness and setting me on a course for success that I am delighted with. I leave a better person than when I started

and that's down to Kate. Thank you! Director Muller Plc 

"As a result of the Coaching I feel better equipped and therefore more confident about the positive change I am able to bring about in my organisation. I am more self-aware and am clear on of my purpose.

Kate's calm and encouraging style of questioning and reaffirming worked very well for me, and I liked the fact that she was able to recall our previous discussions in a way that made me feel that I was progressing and I did not lose sight of my personal objectives. Kate made me think and reflect in a way that has also helped my day to day performance.

This coaching came at a time of huge (unanticipated) upheaval, and in spite of this Kate enabled me to navigate through this without losing a sense of self, perspective or sense of purpose". Finance Director 2020/21

Kate was my ICF Coach mentor as I went through the coaching accreditation process in both individual and group settings. Her coaching skills, guidance, advice and knowledge helped me not only pass the various elements of formal assessment, but more importantly, become a better coach. Kate offers a great balance of being positive and supportive, but also the ability to use her coaching expertise to offer challenges to help you improve.. Mentor Coaching Client 2021

"I found Kate via Linkedin, having found myself in a deeply unfulfilling point in my career, full of self-doubt and misgivings  about what the future held. These sessions have been invaluable in helping me to truly find my purpose and in doing so has completely changed my mindset and outlook to a positive and confident one. Thanks to Kate I am really looking forward to the next stages of my career journey. I cannot recommend her enough". FMCG Private client
 

"In the sessions Kate really forced me to thinking further ahead in my career than I’d ever given thought to. To this end it was a very beneficial session and I’d highly recommend Kate to anyone seeking career coaching" - Frank M, Account Manager  Unilever plc

"I came to Kate  when I was planning to leave a career that had been convenient but unfulfilling for a number of years. She helped me to order my thoughts, recognise what I really wanted from a new career and most importantly it gave me the self belief to study and apply. I now have a new job which is varied and fulfilling and I love it".

 

Helen H, Business Analyst to Teaching Assistant

"I was at a point where I was quite lost with my Development Plan and did not have a set goal that I was aiming for. You really helped me dig deep to firstly identify what was stopping me from pinning down my future goal, and helped me see that the reason I have had successful career progression in the past is that I always had a goal to work to. You also helped me to gain so much confidence in realising that I CAN achieve my future career goal, whereas before I lacked the confidence to believe it was possible.

 

I have talked about my coaching session with you as a defining moment for me and my action plan".

Sales Operations Manager, Unilever plc
