Katey’s personal development skills together with her NLP practitioner background and her knowledge of cognitive psychology and philosophy creates a unique platform for supporting businesses and helping individuals.
Her personal approach is based on two, life-transforming principles, ‘Know Thyself’ and ‘Be the change in the world you want to be.’ Guiding her clients to work introspectively and to discover their true purpose, she helps them find a more effective, happier and successful way of conducting their life and career.
Katey’s clients include business executives, well-known celebrities, sportspeople and people wanting to make changes in their life. She also does voluntary coaching, helping members of the public and friends.
