About Kate

“Gets to the heart of important matters…”

 

Hi, I am Kate, a Leadership and Transformation coach. I have over 17 years of coaching and management consulting experience designing leadership development programmes and coaching leaders through organizational change.

“Kate blends the spiritual with practical leadership and development coaching. She is very in touch with the inside out understanding of the mind and also has extensive senior corporate leadership experience as well.”

My approach to coaching is routed in the inside-out understanding of the mind, which originates in the work of Sydney Banks. He was a philosopher and author who had an enlightened experience about what makes us human. In my work I point people to the fact that our experience comes from within, from the inside out and not from the outside in and that thought creates our feeling in the moment.

“She has a subtle touch to the way she works that creates deep change in her client’s lives. She brings some mystique, fun, passion and a solution focus to her work.”

“Fun, Passion, Solution.”

 

I have studied and applied a range of approaches to Leadership and change such as Heifitz’s Adaptive Leadership, Tavistock’s Psychodynamic approach as well different coaching approaches, such as NLP and Gestalt. I have also studied a Masters in Management Learning and Leadership at Lancaster University.

It was this experience that opened up my heart and mind into researching the pressures that women face when becoming a parent for the first time and when returning to work. This research, along with my corporate background and coaching skills lead me to consult and coach women going through maternity transition, which I still do with a wonderful company called My Family Care.

‘Kate works very quickly and thoroughly to get to the heart of important matters and asks some hard questions that really made me think.’

I am a wife and mother of three young boys, and live in Somerset where my husband and I are renovating an old Rectory and Coach House.

 

A defining moment in Kate’s work was in 2014 was when she was introduced to the Inside-Out understanding of human nature. An understanding founded by Sydney Banks who had an enlightened experience about what makes us human. Kate felt she had found the answers to her questions as she experienced a peace inside. She realised in that moment that our experience comes from within, from the inside out and not from the outside in and that thought creates our feeling in the moment. It is from this understanding that Kate now works as a Leadership and Transformation Coach.
