Transform your inner chaos and confusion into COURAGE.
Kate Fitzsimons is a certified life coach who specialises in helping people turn life's stumbling blocks into stepping stones.
In supportive, weekly sessions you'll learn practical life skills you can implement immediately so you can triumph over set-backs that would normally derail your emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing.
Life Coaching For Teens
For students struggling to cope with the pressures of senior years at school.
If you're a parent and feel helpless seeing your son or daughter struggle with academic and social pressures that you have zero influence or control over, one of the best things you can do is seek out a strong role model and mentor for your teenager. As a former troubled teen herself, Kate has a natural empathy that kids gravitate to and relax around. She's relatable and relevant. She's also a highly skilled and credentialed life coach. What this means is she has a proven toolkit of perspective-shifting exercises and practices to help teens get to know themselves better—so they improve the way they approach personal and academic challenges.
How can life coaching help your teen?
Calm the stress around exams and academic success
Reduce overwhelm about the future and which path to pursue next
Diffuse the stressful negativity of poorly chosen friends, mismatched teachers, or troubled family life
Overcome the despair of a painful break up or friendship struggles
End ‘compare and despair’ social media anxiety
Push through to the finish line on a big goal—even when life has hit your teen with some serious sucker punches
Move forward, one tender step at a time, after a life crisis such as parents divorcing or a death in the family
Implement positive habits such as healthy eating, time management, and exercise
Life Coaching For Parents
For parents who wish their kids would listen to them.
If you're a parent who is having trouble connecting with your teen, you most likely have some work to do on you. Learn how to express yourself so your kids stop tuning you out or jumping to the defensive. Evolve your listening skills so your son or daughter feels safe opening up about what's troubling them. Start prioritizing your own emotional, mental, and physical wellness so you can show up for your kids as your calmest, wisest, most patient self.
You're not Beyoncé
Which means you're probably juggling a lot of stress without much support—tending to your family, your marriage, your divorce, your career, your kids' activities, and your finances. It's normal that your teen's social and academic challenges make you feel overwhelmed, helpless, and slightly heartbroken.
Kate Fitzsimons is a certified life coach who can help you tap into your deepest strengths to find a positive path forward as you and your teen deepen your resilience skills together.
Life Coaching For Teachers
For EDUCATORS who are struggling to connect with the kids in their classrooms.
Teaching has changed significantly in the past ten years. With a myriad of fast-paced, impersonal ways to communicate, kids (and classroom behaviors) have evolved. Parents and educators often struggle to stay in the loop—and stay calm.
Learn to engage and motivate kids while maintaining a healthy and productive sense of resilience.
As an educator, you support so many. Who supports you? Working with Kate, you'll get personalized, one-on-one support and guidance to develop deep-rooted confidence that positively impacts the quality of your life in and out of the classroom. You'll also learn life coaching skills you can implement with your students to help them navigate the academic and social pressures of youth with more resilience.
"After seeing psychologists for several years and still feeling stuck with the same problems, I knew that it was time to try something different. In my first half-hour session with Kate, I felt like I had already gained so much knowledge. There was just a genuineness about Kate where it felt like you were really listening to what I was saying, and whilst she showed kindness and compassion towards the thought patterns I presented, she also never beat around the bush with her advice. This for me was important as it gave me the wake up call that I needed."
WHAT WILL WE DISCUSS IN THE CONSULTATION?
Your free half-hour consultation is a no-strings-attached phone call where Kate will answer your questions and make sure you're a good fit for each other. If you decide you'd like to move forward with a six-week coaching package, Kate will outline your next steps which include making your downpayment and getting started on your coaching pre-work. This short workbook will help you get clear on what you'd like to work on in your coaching sessions.
What is life coaching?
Life coaching is personalized support to help you move forward with your life—toward specific goals—as an emotionally resilient person. With Kate by your side, you'll knuckle down on solving your issues with intentional focus. As a certified life coach, she's professionally trained to help you shift the stubborn thought patterns that keep you stuck. You'll work from an emotional and cognitive level to get to the root of your problems and solve them permanently.
As your coach Kate will provide accountability. She'll also gently, but firmly, challenge you to step outside your comfort zone or shift your perspective so you grow into the person you want to be. Together you'll find solutions to the current issues you're facing, and put them into practice by setting goals and making action plans. She'll help you break down your path forward into manageable steps—to transition from where you are now to where you want to go. You'll learn and practice tools to help you be mentally stronger, find greater joy, and feel like your life is on purpose.
What's the difference between life coaching and therapy?
Therapy and life coaching share similar traits, but each uses a different approach. Life coaching focuses on creating a new life path in order to achieve goals, whereas therapy sometimes looks into emotional resolutions to past problems in order to move forward.
Therapy can help you understand why you're not the person you want to be. Life coaching can teach you how to be the person you want and holds you accountable to become it.
How do I get started?
First, you'll determine if Kate is the right coach for you or your teen by scheduling a free half-hour consultation. During the call, Kate will answer any questions you have and learn a bit more about you and your goals.
How many sessions are included in a coaching package?
You'll work with Kate for six weeks, meeting weekly on the same day, at the same time. You'll look forward to your weekly sessions as a time of personalized support, just for you.
How do the coaching sessions take place—by phone? In person?
Your sessions will take place via a private conference line. You'll receive access to Kate's call-in line in your new client Welcome Kit.
How much does a life coaching package cost?
Your six-session coaching package is a $1200 investment. Package payments are due in full upon signing as a new client.
Your coaching package includes:
Confidential email support between sessions.
A private Facebook page where Kate can connect with, uplift, and inspire you until your next session. She'll share videos, audios, books, podcasts, and other resources to keep you motivated and moving forward.
Do you offer payment plans?
No. Your package is an upfront investment in your future happiness. When you're invested, you'll show up—ready to take your coaching journey seriously. You'll be less likely to let yourself down by flaking out.
How do I know I'll like coaching?
You'll have plenty of time and opportunity during your consultation call to determine if Kate and her coaching style are a good fit for you and/or your teen.
Are there situations that aren't appropriate for life coaching?
Absolutely. Life coaching is not intended to help people recover from emotional or other psychological disorders such as clinical depression, anxiety, substance abuse, disordered eating, physical and emotional abuse, and any other psychological condition that requires a deep excavation of one's past to facilitate healing. Therapy would be the right protocol in those situations.
What if I need to cancel a session?
Individual sessions can be rescheduled with 24-hour advanced notice. Refunds for unexplained missed sessions are not given.
