    Learn more

    I am a qualified executive and business coach with many years of experience of helping people to achieve success. Executives face many challenges today not least of all when they take on new roles and responsibilities. They have few people to turn to who are independent and have no agenda of their own. Coaching can be of great value in these circumstances as with other challenges.

     

    Entrepreneurs and small business owners don’t only have the concerns of running their business but also the constant concern of striking the right work/life balance. Coaching helps here as it does when the entrepreneur sets up a new business, decides to grow the business and also in exiting the operations.

     

    I have considerable experience in managing change, marketing across many countries, providing support to small and medium-sized businesses both as Director and Chairman of boards in a number of industries including financial services, IT, NHS. Also, have set up and run various small businesses here and in Far East. Finally have had 3 books published and can help Executives write reports for the board and small business owners in writing plans for funders, bank and those who might be a buyer of the company.

    I specialize in coaching and mentoring executives, entrepreneurs and founders in emerging and rapidly growing companies, helping them develop the critical business and personal skills necessary to create a thriving, sustainable business.

     

    My clients come to me feeling constrained by the current state of their company, their life and their own skill set. Often, they’re functioning primarily as task-oriented and technically brilliant founders, but need strategic business insights and/or personal leadership skills to take their business to the next level.

     

    Frequently, my clients sense a lack of balance and integration between the drive for profit and their own personal fulfillment.

     

    I guide my clients in becoming conscious, integrated, and authentic leaders, using practical tools that are grounded in sound business principles, drawn from wisdom traditions, backed by scientific research and proven by experience, so they can ride the wave of leadership confidently, making sound, insightful decisions that are aligned with their company’s purpose and values, as well as with their own.

    Across her career, Helen has been recognised as a highly accomplished board level senior business leader, with a longstanding background in PR and Marketing and an industry reputation for business-critical strategic decision making and top-level brand-building consulting to a world-leading client base.

     

    Some years ago, Helen made the transition into leadership coaching, delivering a uniquely blended approach between commercialism within the corporate environment and focus on the individual. Today she provides seasoned professionals with leadership coaching that drives elevation and fulfillment.

     

    Helen specialises in supporting professionals with 20+ years experience who are at a career crossroads – experiencing worry & feeling blocked from making changes despite a growing need to redesign the next chapter of their career for elevation and fulfilment. These committed careerists recognise they can’t afford to stay stuck the wrong side of a transition.

     

    Helen’s coaching blends her commercial edge and branding savvy with her degree in Psychology. Together you will work through her proven 5 step ladder system for Aligned Confident Transformation as you co-create a plan that realigns what you do with what matters most. Then act on it.

     

    ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

     

    Are you stuck at some kind of career or business crossroads but don’t know how to move forwards? Perhaps your crossroads comes via redundancy or you’re striving for a career comeback after a break? Some people already know what change is needed but not how to ‘get there’. Others come to coaching because they value thought-partnership in shaping what would make a meaningful career change. And accountability to act.

     

    BOTTOM LINE:

     

    For our coaching to be powerful it doesn’t matter what your particular crossroads is, so much as the fact you recognise you feel stuck as you stand at them. Do you wish you could ask for career clarity and help to end the cycle of redesigning your career-life on your own so you’re no longer stuck circling the problem? Perhaps you’re looking for help to navigate barriers so you can stop trying to solve the same career problem over and over again until retirement.

     

    If any of this resonates and you’re ready to talk about making change happen, I’m glad you found me.

     

    Our first step is to book a clarity conversation together so we can see if we’re going to be the right fit to work together. It will be a rich conversation where I get curious about your situation today and the career-life synergy you’re striving for. Just get in touch and we’ll set up a time to talk.

    WHAT I DO:

     

    I work with Speakers, Entrepreneurs, Authors, and Executives to CLARIFY their message. My clients gain the CLARITY they need to communicate and engage their audience, teams and stakeholders. My clients shift from talking about what they do to talking about what they stand for. They lead the conversation. They become THOUGHT LEADERS. Thought Leadership allows my clients to realize the financial and impact goals they envision.

     

    WHO I WORK WITH & HOW:

     

    – ENTREPRENEURS, AUTHORS & SPEAKERS: In early and mid stage growth that are ready to turn up the volume – become visible and realize exponential growth. I guide them to a TEDx stage and other stages that give them the credibility they seek to grow. We build and launch membership and one to many business models that allow them to leverage their time & resources.

     

    – CORPORATE LEADERSHIP: I work with Directors and C- Level Executives. My clients are looking to shift the way they communicate both internally and externally and incorporate effective public speaking skills to advance their career.

     

    WHY I DO IT:

     

    I believe in people and IDEAS and I know that lack of CLARITY in communication, planning, and execution is what comes between great IDEAS and the IMPACT these ideas can have in the world.

     

    As a Coach, I believe in aligning my clients, with what makes them flow with the strategy that the project/company needs. I bring to the table my academic business background, entrepreneurship experience, my skills as a TEDx Organizer (one of the largest TEDx in the East Coast) & my training as an Executive Coach. I align the person, to their message and the action.

  • Katherine Hutchings

    Leadership & Career Coach

    Career Strategy | Career Transition | Executive Careers

    Learn more

    I’m Kat Hutchings and I am a career coach. This means that I love working with people who are currently feeling ‘stuck’ and want to get more from their careers. The reason I decided to focus my efforts on career coaching is because I have direct experience with the anxious, uncomfortable feeling of being stuck in my corporate career and not knowing what I wanted to do next. I’ve been where you are now.

     

    My Story

     

    As someone who is focussed and driven, I struggled with the feeling of uncertainty and my usual energy seemed to have faded away. I felt lost.

     

    So I did what a typical problem solver would do and tried a host of ideas, more internal networking at the business where I worked, seeking new roles that would light me up. Joining a Start Up Tribe with Escape the City to see if I wanted to set up my own business. Asking friends and family for advice. Reading self-help books like ‘Brand You’. And then repeating the above, again, and again, and again. Until I was truly fed up.

     

    Then I saw an event run by a life coach. I hadn’t heard of coaching and had no intention of hiring a coach. But she was running a free 1 hour seminar on how to work out what you want to do in life. The title sounded a little fluffy but I thought I’d see if there was any useful career content.

     

    She gave me my AHA moment, and I invested in my first coaching relationship.

     

    I was impatient to make a decision and tried to charge through these coaching sessions to get to a result. But what I learned through the sessions was it is absolutely necessary to take a step back and understand yourself before you can leap forward. It wasn’t my usual style or a particularly comfortable experience (I don’t really spend time dwelling on things, I’m action oriented). But over an 8 week period I found out what I wanted, assessed a new job opportunity at my employer, went for it, and got it.

     

    Having experienced the amazing feeling of confidence & certainty for myself, I decided to train as a coach alongside my corporate day job. I spent 18 months building my experience coaching business leaders before setting up my own business – Kat the Coach.

     

    Now I want to help YOU!

     


     

    My Experience

     

    I have completed a coaching qualification with an approved member of the Association for Coaching – this means that I have a professional coaching qualification recognised by a community of the UK’s best coaches.

     

    Nothing makes me happier than hearing about a client’s success.

     

    Here’s a testimonial describing what this client thought about their coaching experience.

     

    “I worked with Kat for a period of 4 months. She was quickly able to gain my trust and confidence by the quality of her listening and asking probing or challenging questions where appropriate. I welcomed that insightful, evidence based challenge of my thinking which enabled me to improve on areas that had been stable for a while.

     

    Whilst naturally we have had differing career paths to date, that proved a positive rather than a negative as she was able to enable a course of action without a prior bias of the solutions working or otherwise.

     

    Outside of the planned sessions she would listen to conference calls that I ran and provide detailed and constructive feedback, or be there as a sounding board for issues that arose that I would like a confidential discussion with someone that I trusted.

     

    She took a genuine interest in what I was looking to develop and was also keen to share in the successes as they came”

     

    — Senior Director, FTSE 100 Bank

     

    Once we agree clear aims we will focus on tangible actions that take you towards your goals. My coaching experience includes helping clients to:

     

    • get clarity on what you really want
    • understand your drivers
    • plan your career next steps
    • build your confidence
    • deal with difficult people and situations
    • project an authentic personal brand

    I believe that when we are genuinely excited by our work, we are able to make more of a positive impact – on those around us and on the world at large. As a purpose-led career coach, this is my way of ‘making a difference’ and I like to help others to find theirs.

     

    Perhaps you’ve lost motivation for your current work. Perhaps what was once important to you in a career no longer feels fulfilling, or maybe you’ve never felt like your job was a good fit for your skills or your values. Whether you have no idea what career path to explore next or whether you are feeling overwhelmed with too many ideas and don’t know where to start, I can take you on a tried-and-tested structured journey towards clarity and a fulfilling new career.

     

    As a coach, I help you understand yourself better by…

     

    … looking inwards at your strengths, values and motivators – as well as….

     

    … looking outwards to explore and discover new career possibilities that will bring more meaning and purpose.

     

    My approach is warm and encouraging, helping you build your confidence, while also giving a gentle push when needed and offering accountability to make sure change happens.

     

    As a certified Mental Fitness Coach, I can also help you get clarity on the ways you may be self-sabotaging in your work or career change and to build mental muscles to shift towards positivity.

     

    As well as working with private career change clients, I am a coach with Careershifters and lead their flagship career change course, the Launch Pad, and other online courses.

     

    I was qualified as a Co-Active Coach with CTI and also have a postgraduate qualification in Career Coaching with Distinction, as well as being an Advanced Certified Careershifters and Fireworks Coach.

     

    Things I get excited about: innovation (especially when it solves a social issue), mindfulness, wellbeing, sustainability, positive psychology, old scratchy Blues music. I’m a long-term meditator and find my practice helps me to be fully present with my clients, as well as in the rest of my life.

    Hi, I’m Jen and I’ve been coaching CEOs, directors, heads of team and first line managers since 2011, helping them get to the nub of issues quickly so they navigate the really tricky bits of being a leader. My coaching isn’t based on a framework or set programme: We focus on what you need right now and using a blend of pure coaching and practical tools I partner with you to make it happen.

     

    As the head of team of events managers, I experienced the worry of  challenging relationships and ambitious targets. I’ve experienced my confidence fall off a cliff during a restructure and redundancy and the uncertainty of returning to work after mat leave.

     

    What helped me through all those situations is having the space to think and de-stress, to create a vision of how I want a project or relationship to be, to understand my strengths and blind spots and then make a plan and stick to it.

     

    Now I create that space for leaders so they can cut through the noise and deliver amazing work through teams who are really performing. (And when that happens, doesn’t it feel good?) I do this through:

     

     

    My clients include international charities and global banks, private healthcare companies and small but mighty not-for-profits, government departments and tech start-ups. Wherever you work, if you’re up for  some self-reflection and action-taking, I’ll help you make a real impact (and enjoy your job again).

    We are all unique in what we offer in terms of strengths, talent, experience and ambitions. I firmly believe that in this current crisis, it is particularly important to stop and breathe and reflect on who we truly are and what we have to offer before making important career decisions. My clients are finding it incredibly useful to spend the time understanding their own story before they can effectively sell it to others.

     

    Are you facing an unplanned career transition in the face of unprecedented economic challenges? Are you feeling anxious, stuck, unable to know what to do next? Are you seeing this time as an opportunity to try something new?

     

    Had you planned a career change but are now feeling uncertain as to next steps? Are you facing a difficult career decision? Are you seeking a new direction in your career?

     

    You might have been in the same role for a number of years and feel fed up with the lack of challenge. You want to feel excited about going to work and inspired for the day ahead.

     

    You might be secure in your job but feel ready to go for a promotion or to apply for a different role, but you are lacking in confidence and impostor syndrome sometimes creeps in. Perhaps you feel that you need to up your game before applying for that dream job.

     

    You’re at a career crossroads, unsure about which direction to take and would really appreciate some independent help to map out the right path for you.

     

    When you’re faced with one or more of these challenges, it can be hard to find the time, energy and the right tools to address them even though you are committed to making changes. Seeking independent support would be such a positive step to take.

     

    I am passionate about helping driven professionals like you reach their full potential and lead happier lives. With 20 years of coaching and consulting experience, a background in clinical organisational psychology and an effective 1-2-1 coaching programme delivered online, I can support you in achieving both a fulfilling career and a balanced lifestyle.

    Tina supports individuals and teams to flourish, enabling them to move forward in ways they cannot imagine.

     

    Her holistic approach helps you to overcome psychological blocks and reframe your internal narrative so that you can make long lasting, sustainable change and take the necessary action to move forward.

    If your heart isn’t in it, or you know in your gut that something isn’t right, you are unlikely to feel fulfilled or happy in what you are doing.  It isn’t just your mind but also your body that starts to resist your current situation.

    Tina provides a trusting space to focus, in a world full of time pressures and distractions.

     

    She moved into Coaching & Therapy following 30 years working within Human Resources and Executive Search. During this time supporting individuals at points of transition it was rarely the surface level “what’s going on” that was the real issue, it was the “what’s really going on”. This is where feelings and emotions have a massive part to play and the stories that we tell ourselves about our career and our abilities.

     

    In her last employed role, as Head of an Interim Practice for a highly regarded boutique search firm, Tina worked with individuals within a range of industry sectors, including FTSE 100 organisations. She understands how culture, organisation change, and transformation can impact individuals, and how events in our personal lives affect our perspective on our careers.

    My name is Norma O’ Sullivan and I am the founder of The Way Home Consulting.

     

    I qualified as a corporate solicitor in 2013 before being drawn to construction in Australia where I worked in project management for several years. This combination of experience led me to management consulting in the ‘Big 4’ where I found my passion for supporting people through organisational change. I am a certified change manager and a qualified coach. My purpose is to be a light for others so that they can see and accept themselves for who they really are and go after what they really want from life!

     

    Despite appearing ‘successful’ in my personal and professional life, my twenties were defined by feeling I was too much and equally not good enough. My inner critic was running the show and I numbed myself with chronic busy-ness, food and alcohol to cope with the self doubt, at the neglect of myself. I didn’t know how to trust my intuition. I didn’t even know what that sounded like! I felt like I was living someone else’s idea of a ‘successful’ life but I had no idea what a happier, healthier, more authentic life could look like for me. Where in darnation would I start looking, even if I did?! How could I get more glitter and fun back in my life?!

     

    Through coaching, mentoring and deep healing work, I was able to discover self-compassion and get to know my true self. I was able to find my way back home to myself, to the person I was always meant to be – before life experience slapped a whole load of ‘should’s and perfectionism on me!

     

    If this resonates with you and you are tired of wearing a mask to ‘fit in’, if you want more meaning and purpose in your life, here is how I can help!

     

    THE EXPERIENCE – PERSONAL COACHING

     

    Coaching is a a unique conversation where you can explore ideas and dreams and gain greater awareness of what is working in your life, as well as what might be holding you back from living life in the way you want. My coaching provides a safe space for you to look at your long-held beliefs and assumptions and write your new version of the truth from a more empowered, untamed place. The success of our coaching is based on deep respect and unconditional positive regard for you and your dreams. I will be your cheerleader when you doubt yourself and I will challenge you when I think you can be more bad-ass!

     

    I am passionate about supporting you to manage your limiting beliefs and set fabulous goals for your happier, lighter life. I am skilled in helping you re-write your self-talk, knowing that you don’t need to be fixed because you were never broken. I am not here to tell you what to do. Instead, I will be your sounding board for the goal-setting required to realise your dreams. I then keep you accountable for actioning the plans you design to bring those dreams to life!

     

    I want to have fun in everything I do so there will also be lots of laughter and witty banter because life is too serious sometimes! That said, I only work with people who are committed to achieving real, lasting transformation in their lives and are willing to do the deeper work to find their way home.

     

    THE EXPERIENCE – EXECUTIVE COACHING

     

    I believe that organisations led by happy, authentic leaders who role model integrity, collective success and empathy should be the norm, not the exception. I coach leaders in the same way as private individuals but with an additional emphasis on values or behaviours desired in the organisation or as directed by the leader. By coaching leaders for self-awareness, self-regulation and authenticity, they naturally walk the walk required to inspire and motivate others in their organisation.  With people increasingly looking for more meaning and purpose in their work, it is important that leaders are clear on their purpose i.e. their ‘why’, and are able to communicate that purpose so that others can follow.

     

    I also coach small business owners and professionals who want to enhance their performance. This coaching involves mindset work where we will unpick fears which sabotage our progress including fear of failure, fear of success and scarcity.

     

    My private sessions mainly consist of intuitive life coaching and empathy splashed into the mix! Currently, I specialise in career and money with a secondary focus on spiritual development. My clients typically see fabulous, tangible results like increased clarity and confidence on their purpose, values and strengths.

    – from managing time to managing energy
    – from relying on self-promotion, to equipping others to tell your story and spot opportunity for you
    – from trying to “be interesting” to being “interested”
    – from focusing on how valuable you are, to HOW you are valuable / useful
    – from being paid according to hours/days, to being rewarded in line with the value of your work

    I am an experienced leadership development professional and executive coach, with a finance and consulting background.

    I have a passion for seeing individuals flourish and I want everyone I work with to have a deeper understanding of themselves, make the most of their innate talents and abilities and feel they are moving forward in their career. I believe that everyone has the potential to grow professionally and personally, but sometimes just needs a bit of “unsticking”.

     

    For lasting impact, this is best done through deepened self-awareness, curiosity and positivity.

     

    I set up Helen Tuddenham Consulting to do more of what I get thrilled about – working with individuals and small groups, seeing people grow and develop in confidence. I coach professionals in business at all levels, on a range of leadership, influence, impact and confidence issues. My clients predominantly come from the finance, law, financial services, IT and engineering sectors.

     

    Prior to starting my own business I spent 25 years at PwC, advising clients on a wide range of culture, capability and change issues. Combined with my journey of building a career in a complex organisation and a coaching methodology that leads to genuine “aha” moments, I am ideally placed to get results that last.

     

    Working with me, you will unravel confusing thoughts, work out what success means for you and explore what’s holding you back. Once “unstuck”, you’ll have a fuller understanding of yourself, renewed enthusiasm for your work, and the confidence to move forward with your career goals.
    Your organisation sees an increase in performance – through an engaged and motivated leader who is more proactive, more willing to go the extra mile and who’s able to operate successfully at the next level, bringing their team along with them.

     

    My clients are in finance, law and other professional sectors. I coach both in-person and online, depending on location.
