Kimberley’s coaching came at a time that was absolutely crucial for me, both professionally and personally. Coming into coaching I did not know what to expect, but what I did know was that I was lost, with low confidence, and unclear vision of where I wanted my career and life to go, all whilst trying to cope with managing lots of change. Kimberley’s honest, open, and empathetic approach to coaching allowed me to open up in a way I haven’t been able to do before, and I have carried this openness into all aspects of professional and personal life.

Coaching has enabled me to look inward and outward, at both myself, others and to be mindful and understanding of that interaction. My perceptions, ideas and decision making have all been challenged by Kimberley’s coaching, and in the most valuable way. Through this I have been able to open up my mind to thinking previously unknown to me, something that is empowering, but also incredibly humbling.

Kimberley’s coaching has essentially helped me feel in control and confident, not only in terms of the decisions and choices that I make, but also in regard to myself as an individual. Kimberley is a warm character, who truly listens, is incredibly responsive and able to provide a perspective that comes from a place of genuine care.  It wholeheartedly feels an understatement to say this, but Kimberley’s coaching has genuinely changed my life and I couldn’t recommend Kimberley enough. 


Coaching is an aspect of the UpRising Youth Leadership programme that marks out UpRising as distinctive from other leadership programmes.  A large part of our success in developing our young people as future leaders is the emphasis we place on the personal development of our participants. Such personal development would not be possible without the time and effort coaches such as Kimberley have put into our UpRisers.

Kimberley has been utterly fantastic in working with our UpRisers and has played an integral part in the building and development of their self-confidence, clarity of personal vision and goals, raising their self-awareness and leadership presence in those that she has worked with.

Kimberley's UpRising Coachees have all spoken about how comfortable she made them feel and how quickly they could build a strong rapport with her and gain trust. Kimberley's coaching sessions left them feeling empowered and in control of their future, able to realise that their dreams and ambitions were in their grasps. Such characteristics are the integral qualities of any coach, even more so one that works with young people from disadvantaged communities.


I have worked with Kimberley both as a brand consultant and a personal coach and I found her style of working very concise and productive.

She asks just the right questions- precise and challenging, to strip back the ‘fluff’, to pin you down to the heart of the matter and bottom line truths which I found both refreshing and highly useful.

The time was focused towards achieving results, combined with the support and reflection time for me to talk through and explore my creative ideas and vision- as to how I saw my brand and business evolving to exactly where and what I wanted it to be. 

Her friendly and easy disposition created an ideal environment for us to have a great rapport, and create trust. I would highly recommend her.
