I engaged Katie for coaching as part of my current career break. I was feeling a little beaten up from a professional point of view and needed to regain some lost confidence before thinking about joining the job market again.
Together we worked on understanding what my strengths are, exploring my values and getting clarity on what I am looking for next. I'll admit that I struggled with introspection at the first but Katie made it feel very natural and suggested some exercises that helped me to focus. I always looked forward to our sessions as I learnt from each and every one of them and felt uplifted afterwards.
Katie is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is hugely engaging whilst also being appropriately challenging, a balance not easily found but Katie is a natural.
The sessions have more than restored my lost confidence. They have completely changed my view on how I will be approaching my job search in the future by having a much clearer understanding of what’s important to me. I am feeling much more positive about the job search and shall, without doubt, be looking to work with Katie on that too.
I can’t recommend Katie highly enough!
Jackie - Finance Director
I had been wanting to change sectors for some time and needed an opportunity to rethink my skill set and what I wanted from the next stage of my career. Working with Katie, at Elevate Careers, was an instrumental part of this. She was supportive, knowledgeable and most importantly for me, motivational. Through coaching, 1-1s and reworking my CV for different sectors, I was able to define what I wanted from my next role and place myself in a much stronger position to make a career shift.
I’m pleased to say that the work we undertook together soon produced results and I secured a new role in a new sector, making the shift into a organisation that I feel passionate about.
Katie was supportive throughout the process, and genuinely invested in helping me make the changes I desired. It is a competitive job market out there but having someone skilled to work with, to collaborate ideas with, who is championing you throughout the process really helps to produce results.
I highly recommend working with Katie if you have been wanting to rethink your career, change roles or sector.
Katy - Programme Manager
I came to coaching because I’d been feeling unfulfilled by my career for a long time! I knew there was something better for me but felt unclear on how to work out what that was.
Katie and I spent several sessions going into my values and strengths, a lot more than I had anticipated, and it was highly beneficial. It brought up a lot for me on my discomfort in acknowledging strengths. Katie challenged and probed in a really effective way which allowed me to challenge myself and recognise the limiting beliefs I was holding onto.
We then had sessions discussing career options that align with my values and enable me to use my strengths. From there I was able to tackle the more practical assessment and researching of these options.
Ultimately, the experience gave me more clarity, more confidence and certainty with what I really want next in my career. And I am grateful for Katie's support in getting me to this place.
I would highly recommend Katie as a career coach. She is friendly, reliable, clear and direct - I think exactly the combination of skills and abilities needed for a good coach. I would always look forward to our conversations, it was an absolute pleasure working together.

I got in touch with Katie for advice regarding my CV and LinkedIn profile. Katie provided me with excellent guidance for my CV in terms of formatting and reduction of content which wasn’t relevant. Katie’s advice for my LinkedIn profile was also spot on and improved my profile visibility. I highly recommend Katie for coaching and consulting for your career and CV.
