Hi, I am Katie,
I am a certified personal and business coach based in Walthamstow, East London and I can work with you to unlock the challenges you face so you can create more success in your life, whatever that means to you
Transformational coaching can help you access the most resourceful version of yourself. It can create mindset shifts to enable you to achieve whatever you have set out to and eliminate any roadblocks getting in the way.
I take a strengths based approach, working in partnership with clients to enable new perspectives and open up possibility and potential. Through the coaching partnership I can help you gain clarity on goals, raise awareness of and master your inner critique and limiting beliefs, and support you to unlock your potential and generate momentum, action and accountability.
Transformational coaching works with the whole person – both what you and others see in terms of actions and behaviours, as well as what’s happening at a deeper level around your values and beliefs that drive the former.
Coaching is a supportive and energising process. You are in the driving seat – our work together is all about exploring about where you want to get to and supporting you to get to there, hopefully having fun and sparking some excitement along the way.
I have a life-long interest in personal development, psychology and helping others and have worked with clients across a range of life and career experiences.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a certified personal and business coaching having studied with Barefoot Ltd, and am a member of the International Coaching Federation.
I have worked with clients across a range of life and career experiences. Clients have included entrepreneurs, corporate directors and managers, people seeking a new career path or wanting to progress at work and people who want to build their confidence or work on an important relationship.
I take a strengths-based approach, working in partnership with clients to gain clarity on goals, identify any roadblocks or limitations and create momentum, action and accountability. In practice this means asking insightful questions, remaining curious and drawing on a range of tools and techniques from the world of coaching and psychology to enable new perspectives.
Trust and confidentiality are paramount, as are creating a supportive and energising environment.
Most of all I enjoy working with great people.
Having also worked in communications for 20 years, with the last 10 in senior leadership roles in Local Government, I also bring expertise in managing and leading teams and creating award winning social impact campaigns. This experience means I can draw on extensive knowledge of the challenges and opportunities of navigating complex organisations, working in leadership positions and effective communications.
Areas of coaching I deal with
Free initial telephone or online session
There a number of ways we can work together and each package will be developed based on what you're wanting to achieve. Below are two options, but I am happy to have a conversation around what works best for you, so please get in touch to discuss.
You can also book in your free 30 minute consultation, so you can see if we are the right fit and explore what it is you'd like to get from coaching.
I usually work with clients over a period of four to six months. This enables us to work together and get clarity of what your goal is, explore what is going on for you, identify anything that might be getting in your way and create actions and momentum to move towards what you want.
Over this time there will be six 90 minute one-to-one coaching sessions between 3 and 4 weeks apart, as well as check in’s between sessions if anything urgent comes up. There’s likely to be exercises for you to undertake in-between (if you agree) and I’ll send you useful resources and wider reading where that’s helpful.
If there's a specific challenge that’s arisen that you’d like to work through I can offer a one-off 2-hour session. It might be a business challenge, preparation for an up-coming meeting, difficult conversation or relationship that you want to work on. By the end of the session we will have created actions for you to take forward. Appointments can be offered with 48 hours notice and sometimes sooner.*
Please get in touch for more information on rates and to book in your free consultation.
*Depending on availability
The packages also includes a 3-month 30 minute check in call to see where you’re at.
A recent client testimonial:
“I have really benefitted from my sessions with Katie. She has enabled me to identify my skills and attributes, and where I have made an impact in my current role, and this has developed my confidence and focus in the workplace greatly. Katie's approach is considered but flexible to changing needs and responses, and she allows for exploration of ideas and thoughts whilst being gently challenging to get the most out of the session.”
