Working with Kate was a real joy for me. Her capacity to listen with deep empathy, her ability to create excellent rapport, and her ability to respond intuitively helped me to achieve far more that I deemed possible. With Kate’s support, not only did I achieve my goals and objectives I set for myself but the outcomes exceeded my expectations.
Kate displays the qualities and abilities of a great coach and I feel deeply honoured to have been given the opportunity to work with her.
The coaching sessions have been very helpful in so many ways. From the questions Kate asked me, I become more self aware and conscious of my thought processes. This helped me to challenge myself and also to think of things differently.
I felt at ease to explore things with my coach because she was non-judgemental and she listened to me actively. Kate asked me questions that help me to think of the reasons behind setting a particular goal and also to come up with ways of achieving the goals without feeling overwhelmed. The coaching sessions have been an eye opener for me, I have come away from each session with not only a goal to work towards but also highly motivated towards achieving the goal. I was able to identify possible barriers and we worked through how I would deal with the barriers should they come my way.
I can say that not only has the coaching experience had positive impact on me, it has also changed the way I think about things and how I approach situations. I have been able to achieve the goals I discussed and also taken away skills that will help me in the future around goal setting and achievement.
Kate has a naturally calms and confident presence and I have always felt safe during our sessions to explore the best way forward with my goals and my concerns. Kate expertly gets me to focus on what the actual goal is, helping me define the specifics of what I want, what’s behind it and how to do it. She is especially adept at guiding me to what’s led me to pursue my goals, really cementing for me what I want and why I want it.
Kate’s manner and techniques also enable me to tap into my inspirations. I always feel encouraged and eager – very eager – to crack on immediately with my actions. Kate’s methods have encouraged me to focus on my true priorities and my true loves and I’ve become more productive and even feel I have more energy because of that.
The session have had a very positive impact on me. Kate has a way of helping others gain clarity over both what they want to achieve and how that will make a difference for them which both motivates and encourages to reach our goals and achieve more than we’d ever imagined! Her style is motivating and her encouragement and challenge have helped me to believe in myself and what I can achieve.
I have a much more structured approach to the challenges in my life. My ability to deal with emotional situations has improved so much that I have been able to deal more effectively with what has been a very challenging year, due to some of the strategy’s that Kate has helped my develop. My self-esteem has grown. I am more focused. I am also not afraid of being myself and being quiet, not doing the usual self-defence of turning everything into a joke but dealing with the situation at the time. I am able to deal with more challenging people. My mantra has become: Act with a determination not to be turned aside of thoughts of the past and fears of the future and have courage and be kind.
