About Katie

Welcome!   

 

I founded Firefly Coaching to create a unique service which combines the very best of my coaching skills and expertise in employability.

Since 2006, I have been working as 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 those approaching retirement. 

I have learnt a range of coaching tools, including the GROW and HEART models, CIGAR, Solutions-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, MBTI and the Enneagram. My certifications include Life Purpose Coaching, Happiness Coaching, Transformational Coaching and Motivational Interviewing. 

As only one of four coaches in the U.K. currently offering Essence™️, I can also help you to release limiting beliefs or feelings which prevent you from fulfilling your potential. I trained directly with Joy Hicklin-Bailey (founder of Essence™️ and Secret Garden), after discovering the benefits of this approach for my life. I have undertaken six years of ongoing personal development with Joy, and have regular Essence™️ Coaching supervision.

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