Kate is a highly experienced Executive Coach and Coaching Supervisor
Kate is registered with both the British Psychological Society and the Health and Care Professions Council. She works 1-1 with senior leaders.
She began coaching when she was an NHS Clinical Psychologist while she ran the national leadership development programme for aspiring Clinical Psychologists. Since 2005 she’s continued to work with individual clients, coaching many senior leaders across a wide range of organisations and cultures, with a special interest in public sector and NFP. Since Kate is a behaviour change expert her coaching style and method reflects this. She will use psychological tools and models to help you understand your behaviours, the impact these have on other people and how to change them to have an even more effective impact. Her coaching style is empathic, caring and wholly focussed on you. She does bring new information and ideas into the sessions in a way that suits you, working together so that you can use those methods so that these make a big difference to you.
As Kate is a registered Clinical Psychologist she can also offer ‘Therapeutic Coaching’, a method of coaching that goes deeper than usual forms of coaching.
Coaching is offered both through your organisation and privately.
Coaching with a public sector CEO: “You have made me a better leader and better person and I will always be grateful for the support and help you provided me on my personal journey”.
A Senior Medical Regulator: “Despite having had a number of senior national leadership roles in health and social care I rather felt I was floundering. The series of coaching sessions that I had with Kate opened my eyes to alternative ways of looking at my challenges, and revitalised my appetite to take on more. Truly inspirational”.
Senior leader in a FTSE 100 Company: “Whilst I am incredibly proud and humbled by the efforts and achievements of the team I am delighted to feel the coaching lives on and has enabled me to have 'come of age' in my leadership style and the resulting quality of team spirit and relationships with key stakeholders – many thanks again”.

From the MD of a coachee in a FTSE 100 UK company: “Many thanks for the work you have done with [person’s name], I can honestly say I have never seen a bigger change in an individual’s behaviour (for the better!) as a result of a coaching intervention.”
Senior Leader, Private Sector “Kate has been instrumental in my growth and burgeoning success as a leader. She has acted as a guide to make me genuinely reflect and question both what I want from my own career and how I want to support and inspire others. She is incredibly supportive, but is unafraid to ask the difficult questions. With her guidance, I now know what kind of leader that I want to be and I keep that focus everyday. Both my team and my wider organisation are benefiting from Kate's guidance. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
Kate has offered supervised practice for qualified coaches, coaches in training and Clinical Psychology Trainees for many years.
