A creative spirit and ‘corporate rebel’ Katy Baggott isn’t your run-of-the-mill ‘executive coach’. She’s an experienced leadership development coach, personal brand mentor, certified NLP practitioner and hypnotherapist, BACP registered person/centred therapeutic counsellor, speaker, radio broadcaster, podcaster and theatrical singer.
She has judged on various high-profile public speaking panels around the UK, as well regularly being invited to speak on stages, podcasts and BBC radio shows about integrating coaching and counselling, well-being, impostor syndrome, mental toughness, the power of self-belief and empathic and creative coaching approaches.
Expect a progressive, tolerant and irreverent approach to coaching; with warmth, deep awareness, intense loyalty, passionate encouragement, a comfortable environment, relating theory to real-life situations with pragmatism and an imaginative lexicon of metaphors and similes.
