Here’s what some of my clients are saying …

Katie’s program helped me by validating many thoughts and inklings that I had previously had regarding my professional path. I feel like I have been given permission to act on them now, rather than skulking in the fringes, thinking about the possibilities but being unsure about what to pursue and how to make things happen. The whole process was liberating through having your intuitive or inner-knowing made conscious. I really appreciated Katie’s approach – flexible, warm, non-judgemental, insightful.
Katie’s program is of extremely high quality. It is well researched and coherent, and her approach to helping people find their professional path is unique! The workbooks are beautifully written and presented and stuffed full of such useful information.
I really enjoyed the unique multi-focus approach – rather than just ‘find your passion’ or ‘do what you love’ (which seems to be a catch-cry of many programs), her program acknowledges the importance of aligning this with your unique strengths, and a deep understanding of who you actually are – and then using this to meet the needs of others. I am excited to get on with making some plans and bringing them to life!

Katie takes you by the hand and takes you on a journey through yourself. She really listens, without judgment, and finds YOU, and what you need going forward. Very relaxed environment, very professional, I would recommend Katie to anyone.
