About Katie

Welcome!   

I founded Firefly Coaching to empower people to create a life they love, with the work they long to do.

Since 2006, I have been a professional Coach and Manager in the Employability sector, supporting many hundreds of adults from a broad range of industries to achieve their career-related objectives.

I am a licensed CCS Career Coach, having undertaken accredited career counselling training with Career Counselling Services, with further credentials including a Level 4 NVQ in Advice and Guidance, Award in Employability from the Employment Related Services Association (ERSA) and Certificate in Counselling Skills. I am also a certified Mental Health First Aider, and hold a BA (Hons) in English Literature.

Throughout my career, I have delivered coaching for several government-funded programmes and local authority projects, supporting individuals across all career stages, including school leavers, graduates, mid-life professionals and career changers.

My background includes roles in a range of sectors, including I.T. , Education, Social Care, Environmental and Animal Care.

I am passionate about empowering others through coaching, and through my personal journey I have learnt a range of coaching tools, including the GROW and HEART models, CIGAR, Solutions-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, MBTI and the Enneagram. My coaching trainings and certifications include Essence™️ Coaching, Life Purpose Coaching, Happiness Coaching, Transformational Coaching and Motivational Interviewing. 

I am committed to personal development and attend regular workshops throughout the year, as well as regular coaching supervision.

I am fully insured for Public Liability and Professional Indemnity and adhere to the Association for Coaching’s strict Code of Conduct.

"Katie was immensely helpful in guiding and supporting me with my career prospects. I came to her not knowing what to do with my career, she was very attentive in helping me identify my strengths and weaknesses, which I could utilize in the future. Would definitely recommend if you're feeling lost or unsure." - LH, U.K.

“Katie is wonderful. Helpful, considerate and extremely caring- she looks beyond the obvious to help me in a way no one has since I became unemployed.” P, Gloucester

"Katie was able to help me find threads in my interests and skills that I had not considered before and I came away with clarity and feeling more positive about my possible next steps." - OA, U.K.
