About me

On the brink (or in the mire) of burnout?

Is your answer to one or all of these a resounding YES?
If so, I help achievers, athletes & adventurers like you to stop and take stock. Together we then concoct a bespoke plan to head onto a track that leads somewhere you actually want to go.

It's a 360 process designed to harness & hone who you really are and, through a committed, consistent programme of coaching, fast track an increased sense of purpose, wellbeing and joie de vivre because:
1) You begin to truly understand & accept yourself for who you really are, not who others think you are or should be.
2) You believe in & commit 100% to any goal you set - even ones you've shied away from or felt you've failed at for weeks, months or decades.
3) You start seeing progress, fast.

  • Feel like you're only just staying afloat? That at any point the fallout from grief, trauma, illness or loss may suck you under?
  • Achieving outwardly but inwardly none of it seems to matter any more because you feel like you've lost touch with yourself, your dreams, those you loved or believed in, or believed felt the same about you?
  • Do recent global events mean you're questioning the direction and quality of your life, but on your own you're struggling to come up with any answers?
  • Used to being in control, but feel like one area of your life (or maybe all) is in free fall?
  • Have major, unresolved issues in your recent or distant past suddenly caught up with you so that you're finding it hard to get out of bed, never mind perform at your normal peak?

No matter what the initial reason is you choose to embark on a coaching journey, when we partner together my deepest desire is to see you mould an energising, 3 dimensional life that is both healthy & fulfilling, and allows you to start (re)realising your fullest possible potential - in all of life; not just in visible, 'high profile', athletic, adventurous or 'professional' situations.

No matter, your age, stage or bank balance, Unlock your Extraordinary™ is at the heart of everything I do.

We all have the opportunity to seek, learn, develop and persist – to become something and someone (even more) extraordinary - no matter your current job title or your number of friends or followers, online or in person!

Famous or 'normal', royalty or feeling in a right old, royal mess, you'll be treated as the unique individual you are, one courageous enough to share that you could really do with a wee helping hand through a dark, confusing or trying time in your life.

There's something incredibly powerful and propelling about finally admitting you can't do it all alone and need some real support - especially when you're the one known for being in charge and helping everything work for everyone else.

But perhaps the reality is you feel like you're the 'EX' go-to, go-getter; like everything is on 'masked' automatic because behind the scenes you're simply dragging yourself through life, hour by hour?

Not a way to live any more is it?
Or is it?

The safe space of a connected coaching partnership requires you to be open and honest about where you're at, why that's not working for you, and where you really want to be and why.

When you do this, realigning your priorities with your unique strengths & experience with the right support in place to help you get there, exciting things can happen - no matter what bumps and detours transpire along the way.

You have to take the first step but when you commit to yourself and the future you want to shape, I’ll be running alongside to keep you on track and upbeat.

We all get just the one life and every day counts, so if you're at all on the fence about whether coaching is really the way forward for you, get in touch. Book a no strings 30 min connection call and I'll listen, ask you some questions, and then be utterly honest with you about whether I think partnering together could help the mist clear and the sun feel like it's shining on you once again. After all, connection is key and time is precious for us both.

I'd love you to remember one thing before you leave, whether or not we ever meet, there is always hope - ALWAYS.
Sometimes we just need some consistent care, appropriate challenge and genuine encouragement to uncover it again.

Keep believing,

Nothing (ad)ventured means another day with no clarity or confidence in the future. So give yourself a boost and if your gut says 'do it', well... do it!

"I can assure anyone considering working with Kit that there is no reason to be hesitant. I feel lucky to have encountered her.  She helped me overcome my fears of speaking. She is capable of not just helping you achieve your goals but even pushing you further." Adam, Radboud, Holland

"I have found the coaching from Kit to be wonderful. It has given me an appreciation of who I am and the gifts & talents I possess (and) turned back the clock (to) the person of ambition I was thirty years ago." IC, Edinburgh

"I quickly realised nothing and nobody is trivial in your eyes. Not only were you the first person to understand and acknowledge the way I work but since then you have supported and inspired me to constantly move forward and fulfill my potential. Your motivation, determination, and commitment is contagious." 
Saffy, Glasgow

"I had 1:1 career coaching with Kit for over 6 weeks to aid in my pursuit of a career in the oil and gas industry and thanks to her I am now doing just that. She helped me with the creation of my CV, what to include in my application for the role and with in-depth interview practice. Her coaching allowed me to feel confident and prepared during the real interview as she helped me cover such a wide variety of question possibilities. I would wholeheartedly recommend Kit’s coaching to anyone looking for support with their career." Ross, Aberdeen

"I met with Kit for an ‘emergency’ strategy session before interview and this time I got the job." Susie, Glasgow

"I’ve had 2 coaches in the past and I couldn’t seem to learn much from them or see ways that I could better myself. Not until I started being coached by Kit. She actually understands. She never sugarcoats things and she always challenges me when she thinks I need it!" Yves, London

"I LOVE my new job. I couldn’t have done it without Kit. The process was fun and eye-opening, but also hard work! She clearly saw the missing parts I had missed and would have kept missing. From feeling totally demoralised and stuck I am so much more confident and so much else in my life has already changed for the better." Jillian, Edinburgh

"You have helped me massively with my confidence and helped me achieve so much more than I thought possible." Megane, Glasgow
