To give you an idea of how coaching could help you, here's a few comments
that past clients have made:
"Kate is an amazing coach. I first worked with her at a difficult time in my professional life when I felt completely out of sorts with the corporate role I was then in. In 6 months, Kate helped me completely transform the situation, leaving me with a renewed purpose, a profound understanding of my values and what I needed to do live a more amazing life. As a direct result of Kate's work, I left my corporate role and established my own business. That was 9 years ago and I have never looked back. Kate is an incredible listener, deeply intuitive and empathetic and someone who never lets you get away with reaching less than your full potential. If you work with Kate, hold on because your life is about to take off!"
Dr Sarah A Morris, MB, ChB, MBA, Director, Parallax Partnership Ltd
"Kate is a brilliant Executive Coach. She naturally empowers clients to reach their goals both as human beings and as leaders."
Sam Rubin, CEO, Pruprotect, Prudential
"Thanks ever so much for the support you've provided over the last couple of months - it truly has been transformational for me and I'm really grateful to have connected with you and gained your support. Your approach, experience, encouragement and direct honesty has been a breath of fresh air and necessary, so thank you.
What we started out with as objectives have been achieved and actually I think has just provided a grounding for bigger and better things to come."
Darren S, Entrepreneur, Surrey
"Kate has a great gentle, easy-going and curious style which makes you feel instantly comfortable and able to explore what you want, what you're feeling and thinking. Kate has a light touch, gently guiding you to the nub of the issue and how to move beyond it to something more empowering and satisfying. She's highly intuitive around people and always looks out for your best self - the strong, enthusiastic, credible and motivated you.
Since working with Kate I've got a whole lot clearer about what I want from a business I've started and how I show up positively in leadership roles.
I've always looked forward to the coaching and never been disappointed.
Kate's no pussycat however. She has a steely side too and will push you to uncomfortable places but always in service of your agenda and goals - but always in a loving and non-judgmental way.
Kate is also generous with ideas and people resources and is a true partner on whatever path you are travelling in the coaching.
I'd recommend Kate wholeheartedly and she thoroughly deserves her Master Coach designation.
Trevor Cousins, leadership coach and business owner"
"Kate Edmonds has helped change my life without a doubt. Her coaching over the last 3 years has brought me out of my shell to see all of life's possibilities. Once a singleton with low self-esteem I am now self employed managing two businesses, something I had never imagined possible! To top that, I have recently become engaged to my true love and we are expecting our first child . Kate's personal, friendly and caring approach helped me to experience who I really can be not what I wished I was, and that I truly am a wonderful person. Thanks Kate."
"I cannot thank Kate enough and I feel so incredibly lucky to have found her as my life coach. My coaching experience is without doubt one of the most positive and rewarding experiences I have ever had and exceeded all of my expectations. Knowing that I desperately wanted to change areas of my life, but not knowing what impact coaching would truly have, Kate put me at ease quickly - she was open, honest, encouraging and I felt I could trust her immediately. Hugely lacking confidence as well as feeling trapped in a job that I did not enjoy, Kate helped me change perceptions about myself and others as well as think about where I wanted to be. Kate was positive, inquisitive, insightful and really a breath of fresh air. By starting to think positively again and get out of the negative 'rut' I was in, Kate inspired and challenged me to change my perspectives and jump on to that upward spiral I was really longing for.
I truly value Kate as a coach and because of her work, my approach and my life has changed dramatically. Life is brighter, happier and a lot more fun - and the other things aren't as big or scary as they first seem. Thank you so much Kate - you have managed to convert the scaredy cat into the cruisy cat!! You are a fabulous mentor and I'll always feel incredibly grateful to you."
"I still cannot quite believe what a positive, sparkling person I have become after only a few months of Kate's coaching. This is the first time in many years that I can confidently say 'I love my life'. I started coaching as a clinically depressed, insecure and downright unhappy woman, not terribly popular with her colleagues, and with a string of troubled friendships. At first, I set out to remedy a few problems that I perceived as most pressing. However, with Kate's helpful and intuitive approach I ended up overhauling most areas of my life! Most of my relationships have been totally transformed - after years of mutual dislike, for example, my father and I are the best of friends now. My existing friendships have turned into a source of mutual joy and support and even my boss was moved when he told me how many positive remarks he had got about the 'new and improved' version of me. All in all, I have accomplished things I would have never thought possible - losing weight, taking up violin lessons, moving on in my job, applying to university, becoming a star flirt .;-) I just love every day and its endless potential for learning. What a great gift it is to live as a growing and evolving person, and to discover how much fun it is to interact with the world. And what an exciting journey it has been!"
"Coaching has had a hugely positive impact on my life and I see the benefits daily. I was keen to move job and within 3 months of starting coaching, I moved to a role that I wanted. My performance in my new job has been good, I have been able to make a very positive impact because my confidence has grown significantly. Moving jobs was the key reason I started coaching, but the benefits have been numerous and wide spread improving and deepening relationships with friends and family, reducing feelings of anxiety and significantly increasing my confidence.
Kate is very honest and trustworthy, she makes you laugh and is good fun. She is very human so it is easy to talk to her. She is also very in tune with you and when you are feeling strong, weak, confident, etc.
Ultimately life coaching is a method for looking at who you are and what your potential is and helps you realise that potential, some of which you may not have even allowed yourself to dream about."
"Kate really helped me to put my life into perspective. I had been feeling
upset and unfulfilled for quite some time, but the sessions with Kate
quickly gave me a sense of calm and understanding. I would recommend Kate
"Thank you so much for your help in the past month. You are a very
insightful and sensitive person and have great wisdom."
"I felt I could express whatever I needed without embarrassment in the warm
supportive space that Kate provides. She has the knack of asking, exactly at
the right moment '...Why?' encouraging me to look deeper than I had first
Kate held each concept for me as I worked through issues allowing me to
devote energy to each one and giving me the space to embrace the next
concept fully without struggling to mentally monitor them all. Then she
reflects the whole picture back to me enabling me to see it all together as
I've never seen it before. It is a wonderful, empowering experience, and I
really was able to move forward with new clarity."
"I was desperate to change jobs when I came to see Kate and she helped me
realise that the root problem wouldn't go away unless I changed my attitude.
We worked on this together for 6 weeks and during that time things started
to get much better at work. I'm still looking to change jobs but in a much
more relaxed, confident way."
"Kate helped me to find a clear path forward when I was at an impasse in my
life. I really enjoyed being coached and it's still making a big difference
in my life. I'm now ready to commit myself in a relationship again."
"Thanks for your support in the past few weeks. It's really helped me to see
things in a different way and makes me more able to respond positively to
the events and decisions I've been engaged with. It is some time since I
have felt entirely comfortable about freely shaping my time and directing my
energies. It's been a real stepping stone."
"It's lovely to know you're there for me, Kate."
