Coach of the Month – Kate Reynolds

IMG_4457Name:  Kate Reynolds

Title: Relocation Coach

Business Name:  Kate Reynolds

Client Testimonials:  www.katereynolds.com

Niche/Specialties:  Relocation Coaching, Expat Coaching, Trailing/Accompanying Spouse Coaching.

Expat Experience:  My first international relocation experience was to Qatar, Middle East.  As a single female in Qatar I experienced many challenges during the “settling in” phase. However, I worked hard, triumphed over these difficult times and successfully worked there for over 5 years.

My professional career included working in the fast-paced airline industry for many years.

Also, the extensive international travelling and visiting various countries has added to my experience of creating relationships with people from different cultures of the world and getting to know these cultures.

My latest relocation experience is to Australia, as an accompanying spouse, supporting my husband’s career.  I have successfully built my life here, since we moved, had a baby and developed my business.

Languages Spoken: English

Life Experience:  I would not be who I am today if I had not taken chances in my life. My own relocation experiences, overseas as an expat and even around the UK, have developed my self-knowledge.  Running my own business has always been my dream. And relocating to Australia as a trailing spouse gave me the opportunity to develop my business ideas further.  I have considerable living overseas experience, and I am passionate about helping people with their relocation challenges.

Accomplishments:  I have a Bachelor Honours Degree in Business Studies. I have completed a Life Coach Diploma. I am also a Certified Cyber Therapist and an NLP Practitioner.

A big life accomplishment has to be: I became pregnant with my son, Dylan, when I first moved to Australia. I had a complicated pregnancy and my baby was born prematurely. I went through this experience and the start of motherhood with only my husband to support me.  While I can offer coaching and support to anybody relocating, this unique experience makes me particularly inclined to empower, coach and support other women living overseas who face similar challenges.

What I Love About Working in This Niche:  I love nothing more than listening to peoples’ unique relocation journey stories and I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and experiences to help them overcome the obstacles they find in their way.  I have faced and can emphasise with many of the challenges of relocating; building a social network, homesickness, dealing with a culture shock and changes in routine, to name a few.

I take my clients through such challenges, step by step. I encourage them to implement simple strategies to overcome them and start creating the life they want to live.  And nothing makes me happier than seeing them thrive.

Coaching Style:  I have a warm and friendly nature that comes across in my coaching sessions. I ensure my clients feel relaxed by creating a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space. I love working with clients to help them find clarity, build their confidence and explore out of their comfort zone.

Favorite Coaching Tool:  This is a tough question. There are so many and which one I choose depends on my client’s needs.  However, to name one, it has to be the “Wheel of Life” (edited for expat clients).  I have tweaked many tools for the purpose of the relocation process.

A Tip for My Niche:  Remember: this unique journey is YOURS. Create the life you want to live.
