Fully qualified Therapist & Life/Career Coach (Dip CBT, MAC)

About me

A fully qualified Therapist and Coach with a passion for helping people meet their potential and enjoy their lives.

Imagine achieving more, with less effort. Imagine leading with self-compassion, instead of beating yourself up. Imagine loving your life without reservation.

You’ve reached a plateau. You see others achieving great things in their work and personal lives and wonder why you’re not. You swing from feeling confident in your ability to being crippled by self-doubt.

Life feels like hard work and you often feel overwhelmed, preoccupied and shackled to your to-do list. 

Others tell you you’re hard on yourself, but you’re not so sure. You’re used to your harsh, critical inner voice, and wonder if you’d achieve anything without it. The irony is, this voice is holding you back.

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change”

Carl Rogers

My approach helps you to

  • Develop deep acceptance of and compassion for yourself and others.
  • Dismantle limiting beliefs and build true, unshakable confidence.
  • Learn genuine assertiveness and develop healthy boundaries.
  • Tackle perfectionism through learning what “enough” feels like.
  • Remain rooted in the present and reserve energy for your own needs.

So that you can finally achieve ultimate success:

At work

  • Attain that “out-of-reach” promotion or career change.
  • Avoid burnout by approaching work with sustainable effort.

Personally

  • Cement behaviour and lifestyle changes you’ve been battling for years.
  • Process emotions in a healthy way to maintain consistent mood, energy and enthusiasm.

In relationships

  • Remain present for loved ones and enjoy relationships that feel reciprocal.
  • Resolve conflict with confidence.

Spiritually

  • Feel more mindful, grateful and balanced. 
  • Experience life with more ease and joy.

Testimonials

“My coaching from Katie was excellent. I received six sessions and each came back with deeper knowledge around my goal and my inner self through Katie’s questioning, reflections and homework between sessions. Katie is an excellent people person with exceptional active listening skills and built up a safe environment for me to explore my inner self in. I would recommend Katie if you are looking for a coach.”


E.C, Glasgow


“Katie is a fantastic coach. When we first met my circumstances were different to when we finished my coaching, and I went through a bit of an emotional rollercoaster with my thoughts and emotions regarding work. However, Katie really helped me to reflect on my thoughts, actions and confidence when dealing with situations at work which I have benefitted from and can move forward with actions we covered to achieve my goals in the future.


Katie helped me to think and express myself and made me feel comfortable and at ease to share my thoughts and feelings - I would 100% recommend Katie for coaching.”


H.B, London


“Katie is a fantastic coach, who listens deeply and seems to intuit exactly how I am feeling and what deeper behavioural patterns this could relate to. Her suggestions were all tremendously useful to me and I enjoyed the process. I would recommend her as a coach to anyone looking to move forward with their goals, or to simply understand their behaviour and attitudes better. It's so nice to get a bit of perspective.”


K.B, Glasgow


“It has been a challenging year for the team and their resilience has been tested. Katie delivered two excellent virtual sessions for the team on Resilience Building and Stress Management. She developed these based on the team's needs and the sessions were peppered with practical tips that can be applied professionally and personally to manage stress and build resilience. Would highly recommend Katie to any individuals or teams that require support with managing stress and building resilience. Katie’s highly engaging style, approach and excellent use of the time available also ensured that attendees were able to successfully glean maximum value from the sessions.”
