About me

Welcome to Sea-Change Coaching!

Kim is an NLP master, an accredited and experienced personal or Life Coach with a wealth of experience in facilitating lasting change for individuals, groups and organisations/ Business.

Kim also regularly facilitates specialist NLP Coaching Programmes (see events page) for small groups at her centre, where clients can stay and enjoy the peace and tranquillity. She also leads Coaching by Nature, a walking coach programme, through ancient woodlands alongside the Menai Straits which provides breathing space for clients to gain insight and understanding and mobilise your resources to develop options and solutions.

Her training and experience (Human Given’s psychology, P.G Cert Coaching, NLP Master) have continually demonstrated that Coaching is one of the most powerful ways of maximising an individual’s potential and performance. As well as one of the best tools in enabling individuals to create the change they desire.

She describes her coaching practice as ‘A dynamic thinking partnership’ in which clients learn not only about themselves, but also how they learn and develop best. This empowering approach engenders fresh perspectives, new ways of thinking and approaching situations in order to get better results.
