After every session with Kate I feel positive, energised and refocussed. Her monthly sessions are invaluable to me.
Kate has such a bright and positive personality, together with a professional approach and meticulous attention to detail, that is proving invaluable to the coaching she has done with members of our team. She is able to guide and support in order to bring out the best in them whether that be in confidence, communication skills and their own professionalism; helping them as individuals and in turn, benefitting the business. It is great working with someone who understands our business vision, drive and the individual success for our team. Her step by step communication is really valuable as business owners to ensure we are aware of progress and work being done.
I asked Kate to come in to work with my team to support them with major changes taking place within our industry, as well as helping them to become better at what they do, how they work and the service we offer as a whole. Kate was able to get to the heart of the different challenges the team was facing very quickly, while at the same time, gaining the trust and confidence of them all. She has helped the team to become more efficient with their time, more aware of their strengths and weaknesses and how to deal with these and this has had a direct result on the improved service they provide to clients, both new and existing.I have noticed significant changes in the way they are all working and the team unanimously agreed on how beneficial this process has been for them. I would not hesitate to recommend Kate and the service she offers.
Kate was asked to present to three different teams within the business, which represents how relevant and cross functional Kate’s material is to businesses. The teams all came away understanding how to feel more empowered and confident within their roles. Kate also covered time management techniques as well as how to create the best impression of yourself in the business environment. All teams unanimously agreed that Kate’s style was engaging and personable and the presentation was of real benefit to the whole team and helped raise their moral and have taken these learnings forward.
Kate was able to ask questions to help me work out my weaknesses that were beneath the surface but had not really considered before. I found networking and professional socialising situations challenging so Kate was able to provide training on how I should prepare and deal with these more effectively. The impact has been very positive and has had wider implications. I am more positive and confident; more relaxed in front of clients, leading to better conversations, better relationships and therefore, better prospects for new business from client referrals. My advice to others in the same situation would be to “take the plunge” as this has been such a worthwhile, positive, professional and rewarding process, if you go with an open mind.
I have been working with Kate for over a year and the effect her guidance and support has had on my stress levels, time management and general efficiencies at my job has been incredible. I never thought I would like coaching but I have found it utterly invaluable and Kate has become a firm fixture in my working life. She helps me to see problems in an alternative way, she teaches me how to approach challenges differently, she is a wise sounding board when I am up against a problem and she has helped me to become better at what I do. I cannot recommend her enough.
I started working with Kate as I needed to cope better with the requirements set out by the company for more client meetings. Kate supported and guided me through devising a plan as to how to achieve this. I am now meeting clients more, asking for referrals and feel much more confident in my role. Working with Kate was a huge factor in making this happen.
"Kate let me talk through my issues but had the ability to ask the sorts of question that would stop me in my tracks, make me think and really get back to basics. The sessions made me realise that I was able to control my work environment to a large extent; six months on and this realisation has really helped me to enjoy my work more and relieve the frustration I had been experiencing.”
I have been struggling for such a long time to get my work/life balance in check, organise my time at work effectively and get myself in the position to go for a promotion. After working with Kate for three months I have achieved all three! Kate taught me how to manage myself, keep things in check and use strategies to challenge myself and think in different ways. One of the best experiences I have ever had- "life-skills" for life!
Life-coaching was a completely new experience for me. Kate was absolutely amazing-so kind, understanding and a true professional. I feel so much happier, stronger and liberated as a result of this wonderful process. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
I first came across Kate when I was researching Image Consultants for both Personal and Corporate work as I was about to launch my business with the same services in mind. Kate was/is such inspiration and I felt so pleased not only to find a great business coach but she had a wealth of experience in the industry I was just about to tap into. I felt overwhelmed with everything I had to do with the set up of my business and I lacked confidence which held me back to go out and market myself. Kate completely got where my head was at, helped me to create order with everything which needed to be done and coach me along with way of how I could move my business forward. My business set up is complete and with Kate's help the service I now offer is hugely improved which has enabled to believe in myself and work on my marketing strategy. My husband noticed a difference in me after every session from Kate, as he could see I felt more positive and more in control. I would recommend Kate without doubt to anyone needing some direction or style training, she’s an absolute joy!
"I have found coaching such a positive and enlightening experience. You have taught me how to look at life from a different angle- one that is more positive and allows me to feel empowered by the decisions I make. I have finally begun to set up my business that I have wanted to do for so long but have never had the confidence. Thank you for showing me how to make that first step and many more after!"
"Kate, coaching with you has exceeded my expectations in every way. You have given me the confidence to know that I can set and achieve goals; you have also helped me to make all areas of my life easier to deal with, more enjoyable and gain more from. Thank you for all you have done and taught me...what an amazing experience!"
"Kate, I cannot thank you enough for what you have helped me sort out and now achieve! Before I started working with you I would procrastinate, go round and round in circles and end up achieving nothing and feeling so frustrated. You have been a calm, methodical and brilliant influence on me and how I now approach my life. I am more organised and for the first time in years I feel like I am "on top" of everything....thank SO much- what a fantastic process!!"
