About me

Hi I am JK (Jennie-Kate) McQuinn, Coach & Facilitator. 

I offer a combination of life, career, mindset and well-being coaching to men, women, non-binary individuals. Online, in person and in Nature.

You can find more at




(I also offer facilitation/coaching and training to teams)

I love to work with people, who have recognised that the role or career you are in, currently isn't offering fulfilment.  Or you're struggling to find a 'best fit' career option for health, happiness and confidence. 

You may be experiencing worry, anxiety,  burnout, frustration or low mood because of the impact this is having. And you need some help to get unstuck, create actionable intentions. Understand what your ideal life would look like. And how to find a career and work culture that enables you to live life more aligned to yourself and your values. 

You may be struggling with confidence in one or more areas of life, making your exploration of a new career or different role, feel even more daunting. 

I coach people who are looking for greater understanding of themselves and the world. With a desire to have a career and life, that feels wholesome, balanced and connected. 

Supporting you to boost your self-belief and esteem. Create clarity and understanding of your unique self, and discover the ideal conditions for you to thrive both in career and in your life too. 

Main main coaching services are delivered out in nature, at private woodland near Ripon, North Yorkshire. (March- November)  www.wherethemindgrows.co.uk
