"When I first got in touch with Kat, I was feeling totally overwhelmed by my job, it felt too challenging and too consuming, and without any of the payoffs that might make all that worthwhile: I didn’t find it fulfilling, I didn’t feel passionate about it, I didn’t feel it represented me.
I would avoid talking about my job with my friends and family, but because it used up so much of my energy, once I had deflected the question ‘so, how’s work’, I had nothing else to talk about, I was simply heading home to the sofa every night, exhausted and disheartened, but with no idea what to do about it.
Once I started working with Kat, I felt a transformation begin to happen, and it felt SO GOOD. I got my current job into perspective, realised that I needn’t feel trapped, and I started to get my energy back and to resurrect the rest of my life.
Ideas quickly started to pop up and I felt much more open and alert to possibilities. I ended up discovering that a career dream I had put aside years ago was still meaningful to me and still a realistic option, and I’m happily on a path to that dream now.
Kat’s coaching has been brilliant, as has the support of my fellow career-changers, I’m so glad I took the decision to invest in the course! I’m so grateful to Kat, she is kind, feisty, encouraging and inspiring; she’ll get you out of your comfort zone and onto a path to a career that fits you better."
"Working with Kat has quite simply changed my life! I was trapped in a job that made me miserable and couldn't find my way out. I was struggling to find the confidence to take the leap into the unknown and leave my job! I knew for a long time that I needed to but was tied up in knots with fear about so many things. I'd been unhappy in my role for several months and the relentlessness of my workload and commute left me exhausted. I knew I didn't want to keep doing what I was doing but I had no space to work out what it was I DID want. I spent hours trawling job sites but felt I either wasn't qualified or just not interested in the roles I saw advertised.
Then I remembered seeing that a friend had posted on Facebook about working with a coach when in a similar unhappy work situation. That coach was Kat and after an initial chat I joined her 12-week group coaching programme…
Kat gently pushed me out of my comfort zone and her assignments taught me a lot about myself. It was hard work at times and took a lot of soul searching but I worked through everything in Kat's coaching programme. I came to understand that I enjoyed the work I did in my job, but I needed more control over my work/life balance and to work with people who have the same values as me. It was an amazing moment when I realized I didn't have to spend thousands of pounds re-training but could start with what I already knew and have the freedom to fund my development in other areas at a later stage. I am now setting up my own business providing freelance business support to entrepreneurs and small businesses and I feel much happier, healthier and more confident.
I've also gained some fabulous new friends in the amazing and inspiring ladies that were part of the coaching journey with me. I can't wait to get stuck into the next phase of my journey and see where it takes me! Thank you so much Kat for your unending support.
"After my discovery call with Kat I had to go for a run to clear my head. I had just opened up to someone who not only listened but was offering me something I hadn’t thought possible. I was dealing with anxiety, depression and completely lacked any self confidence. There was no question I was going to invest in Kat’s 12-week career coaching program which has been undoubtedly an amazing investment in myself and my future.
I’m still on my journey and it's been an interesting ride. I’ve grown stronger in myself. My confidence is the most obvious change I've noticed and I no longer feel held back by my current career or situation. I’m braver, bolder, I ask for more. I stretch myself beyond my cosy comfort zone and I laugh more!
The weekly group calls were initially a bit scary - we were all strangers. After the first call it was clear we were all on the same journey. There was no competition, only open and honest conversations. This is the most valuable part of the course for me because of the support, total acceptance and positivity those calls inspire and generate. Knowing you can share your feelings, accomplishments and fall-backs without fear of judgement is so encouraging you feel there’s nothing you can’t do, or at least give a good try!
The practical and magical tools Kat provides you with and the life skills you learn along the way are brilliant! The most important part for me has been the change of mindset which her course has helped me achieve and the opportunities my new mindset has opened me up to. For that I am eternally grateful and will forever be reaping the benefits of!
I would recommend Kat to anyone who is feeling lost or in need of getting their spark back in order to find their best place in the world, or world of work!"
"I did Kat's 12 week Career Change Programme. It really helped me focus on my goals and on who I am. My confidence improved and I have found myself in a new job and better place.
The journey isn't over, but Kat has given me the tools to keep focused on what I want from life.
The 12 week programme was intense but was worth it as it has sent me off on a trajectory with momentum!
I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to change career and needs to work on how to get there!"
"When I first started working with Kat, I really didn't think that I could be where I am in my business today!
I had no real idea on my direction. Kat was able to help me to breakdown what I wanted, in a comfortable manner and in bite size chunks that was beneficial to me. She really encouraged me to try things that I was uncomfortable with.
Honestly, I thank her for all that she has done, as I definitely would not have got there without Kat's support. She is really warm, friendly. non-judgmental and a ball of knowledge. I feel like I have gained a friend as well as a coach!
I would recommend anyone to Coach with Kat - if you are struggling to find your career direction, if you are struggling with your confidence to achieve the impossible. She will 100% be able to help you find your path, provide you with tools that really help you get clear on your values and goals. She will support you online and offline to help you achieve them and more!"
"I approached Kat at a time where I felt a little lost and detached from myself. I was apprehensive at first, but Kat has a very patient, approachable and diplomatic nature and I found her very easy to open up to.
Through her coaching style, I found myself really motivated to complete weekly actions and having the next weekly session booked in kept me accountable and pushed me to take daily steps towards goals.
My greatest takeaway from working with Kat is I now feel more in control of my own life. I'm now putting less pressure on myself and am content in my new ability to make small ongoing steps towards my goals. I can't thank Kat enough for giving me the guidance, awareness and clarity I needed. Worth every penny!"
"During the course of my sessions with Kat my life really did change quite significantly.
In six months I went from being extremely unhappy in my job, to working for a new company in a fantastic role. During that time I also qualified as a personal trainer and I now run my own part time training business.
Life coaching isn’t about getting someone to do the hard work for you.
Working with Kat gave me clarity on what it was that I wanted to change. We discussed the practical steps I could take that would take me closer to my goal.
Having someone support you and encourage you to focus on what you want and help you to formulate a step by step plan to get there is incredibly powerful.
Working with Kat made me accountable and having a plan made me feel more in control of my life. Like anything in life, you only get out what you put in. I would highly recommend sessions with Kat. You might just be surprised by what a difference it makes."
"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Kat and have found our sessions to be extremely beneficial, certainly setting a positive tone for the rest of the day!
Her succinct and effective questioning has helped to highlight important patterns in my behaviour, identify what my needs are and accordingly address them.
One of my favourite moments was exploring and brainstorming ideas of how I could better connect with other people to better improve the quality of my social life, having recently moved to a new city.
I genuinely enjoyed doing this as it gave me the opportunity to think outside the box and come up with my own ideas, some of which may have seemed a little crazy, but certainly helped to get my creative juices flowing!
I found it helpful and motivating to have someone that I was accountable to and be able to share my small (though significant) steps of progress with. And for this I’m grateful for Kat’s continued support and positive encouragement!"
"I found my sessions with Kat were very helpful in getting me focused on some key challenges that I had been procrastinating about because of some negative belief systems.
Kat posed questions that made me think about things and gave me the foundation to find solutions myself.
This was enlightening and thought -provoking.
Kat gave me the opportunity to talk freely and openly and in a non-judgemental environment. I feel it helped to talk with her and I feel that if I needing coaching sessions in the future I would consider contacting her to make further appointments.
I would recommend coaching sessions with Kat."
"Kat started coaching me a few months into maternity leave. I needed help to adjust to the new childcare routine and to conquer some anxieties I had about returning to work.
Kat was extremely helpful in creating some headspace for me to get to grips with the specifics of these thoughts and place these into a logical order with an associated action plan.
As the sessions went on I began to feel more positive, I has a sense of achievement as I completed each of the small goals we'd set together.
Overall I now feel more powerful and confident. I would recommend Kat to friends and work colleagues."
"Kat, thanks for all the help and support you’ve given me over recent weeks. I’ve appreciated your calm manner, great listening skills and thought provoking questions.
Our coaching sessions have allowed me to get some clarity and focus and you’ve helped me to unravel some issues and blockers holding me back. I feel in a much better space to move forward in this year with purpose and a plan of action!"
"I found Kat asked all the right questions and I now have the direction to achieve my goals, breaking down what I wanted to achieve into more manageable steps - so difficult to achieve alone.
Kat has a wonderful relaxed manner and I find her very easy to talk things through with. I’ve been able to achieve competing in my first ever triathlon, generally improving my fitness and diet.
I really couldn’t have achieved this without Kat’s help. Thank you so much!"
"I found Kat’s easy going coaching style put me at ease and we built a great rapport week on week.
She was firm when needed, helpful and sensitive. It was only through her encouragement and belief in me was I able to achieve the right balance within my life."
"My sessions with Kat helped me to build my confidence and helped me to prioritise my time so that I take actions more effectively.
Your open and kind nature made it easy for me to open up and trust you. I also really enjoyed the way that you challenged me enough to keep me on track.
Overall, I am on track to achieving my goal of having my business up and running by December!"
"I had gotten lost in the career change journey and was on the point of giving up. Kat helped me to narrow down my goals, keep me focused and helped me to identify small, achievable steps - which I was accountable for taking each week.
I remember being impressed at her ability to ask me good questions to bring answers out of me, even when I said ‘I don’t know’."
"I felt at ease with Kat from the moment we first spoke.
My finances had been causing me a lot of anxiety for a long time. I now feel in control and the sessions we had have opened my eyes in terms of how I need to approach things differently in the future.
I am so happy with the results that have been achieved in such a relatively short space of time and feel better equipped to manage the challenges that lie ahead.
I could not recommend working with Kat as a Coach highly enough. I have worked with quite a few coaches in the past and Kat is definitely one of the best."
"Kat has a very warm and engaging but professional ‘no nonsense’ style which I found to be important when I had so many ideas and thoughts buzzing around in my head.
I knew on the first session that we were going to get along and that Kat would help me focus on the priorities. She made me feel comfortable but important.
Kat was very open and honest, being firm when it was necessary but pleasant and sensitive at the same time. Through her really good ability to listen to me and helpful prompting when I needed it, I was able to believe in myself and move forward to the next phase of my life, turning those confusing thoughts into reality to achieve the right level of satisfaction and contentment for me as a whole person."
"With Kat’s coaching I have formed the pathway to my career change goal with greater clarity and confidence.
I found that the coaching conversations were so solid that they stayed with me between calls and I have been able to share my passion and progress with those around me, which has been hugely satisfying.
The results have been really exciting and inspiring. I have the evidence of this all around me, including better organized work areas, email contacts from around the world from people who share my desires and want to work with me, and a new Facebook group!
Kat has taken my goals seriously, has been ever encouraging and provided a professional, empathetic and unwavering base for which I am extremely grateful."
