My Blog

Welcome to the Coach With Katy Blog.  A space where I share my thoughts and top tips on all things coaching, clinical hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). You will find inspiring and engaging articles covering a whole range of areas and yet all rooted in changing habits, symptoms and behaviours through the power of our minds.

I invite you to pause, take a moment for yourself and have a read. I hope you find my words supportive and inspiring.

I love to hear from you so please get in touch if anything you read strikes a chord.
