As a cognitive behavioural coach, (CBC) my approach draws on the theoretical principles of CBT. The focus is on your life now and the reality of where you would like to be, what you would like to change.
If someone said; 'You can take control of your thoughts and emotions. You can establish a clear direction for your future. You can be accountable through life's transitions.' Would you want to?
With a track record of helping people overcome their challenges, those I work with make greater personal and professional progress, overcome blocks to productivity and live more successful, happier lives.
Individual coaching areas; work/life balance, parenting, ex-military, career change, mild anxiety, motivation & confidence building, personal & professional development.
Free 30 minute telephone consultation to establish if coaching is appropriate & if I am the right coach for you.

Liz Butler - Occupational Therapist 'I have recently completed my coaching sessions with Kay Burdis-Hunt which focussed on pursuing a vocational dream I have had for a long time. I found the sessions extremely useful both in helping me to focus on what it was that I wanted to do and in challenging what was holding me back. Voicing your ideas to an unbiased person rather than just thinking them through really helps you to formulate a plan and take your initial steps.
Client A.P - Company Chariman 'I initially chose to work with Kay regarding plotting a new direction with my business and ended up using my new found tools to help with my children who had experienced difficult times following my divorce. On the business side, I have now set a great positive course, (I was previously floundering) leading to my semi-retirement. I now have firm, but achievable goals. I know where I am heading and have a route planned on how to get there. I have a positive and excited attitude to my future and feel that a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. The answers were there all the time, Kay helped me answer my own questions. I have used my new positive attitude sucessfully in dealing with the needs of my children. Thank you Kay.'
Client S.J. - Accounts Manager ' I was quite sceptical about life coaching but thought I'd give it a go. I have found that I am really thinking about how I think about things and colleagues and how I approach conflicts within my organisation. Applying the simple stratagies Kay and I have discussed enabled me to look at situations from different perspectives. I can now achnowledge that I am not right all the time ! and that is ok...........I'm less stressed......... I'm meeting with Kay in the future to look at family conflict and my anxieties ...'
