“It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not”
Meet Jackie & Kate
My background is in wellbeing, care and education. I am a qualified Counsellor and Hypnotherapist and run a busy practice. My whole working career, 45 years now, in one way or another, has been in the area of understanding the mind and supporting people to understand how they think in order for them to grow and change.
I have worked with clients ranging from 92 years of age to 6 years old and from business owners to those in the public sector. That’s the thing about coaching, everybody can benefit from it so that they can move forwards in life.
I know the power of thought and how much control thoughts have over behaviours and actions. I coach people to understand that a thought is just a thought which can be changed. Almost all limitations are self-created. I love the moment in coaching when people realise that the only thing holding them back is themselves. I have discovered that most people know what to do to get better results but they just don’t do it. A good coach will help you to see that anything is possible.
I help clients to step out of their comfort zone and into their growth zone and see that they have the same amount of potential to achieve and be successful as anybody else.
I worked in education for 15 years and enjoyed teaching. I found working in a school was extremely rewarding and satisfying and I felt like I was making a difference. I loved he school I worked and the staff and children were wonderful. I worked hard and knew that working in my own time was all part of being a good teacher.
As the years progressed, the workload increased but I didn’t notice how much it was dominating my life. I started dreaming of setting up my own business. I realised the only way I could do this was to leave teaching for now and focus on something different and new.
Without telling anybody, I handed in my resignation – just like that! It hasn’t always been easy but it’s been exciting learning new skills and creating new experiences. I now help others to make life changing decisions through coaching.
Kate Evans is a natural motivator. She has a warm and unobtrusive confidence that instantly puts you at ease. Her desire to help people realise their own greater potential has been life changing for me. With Kate’s insight and patient nurturing, she gave me the confidence to come from a very dark time in my life, to inspire me to start my new exciting career. A step I could never have imagined a year ago.
When I look at the changes in me and the way I deal with life, I have more confidence. I now deal differently with criticism. I understand and control my food problems. With my new knowledge I have been able to help my family as well. All because I found Jackie. With her help and strategies, I am a happier person.
