We are the products of our history — and the architects of our future

Deep psychological coaching so you can be outstanding, at work and in life


Our history, particularly our early experience, creates patterns in how we respond to life. We don’t always notice how these patterns show up in our adult lives. Once we start to recognise them and understand their roots, we can become the architects of our future, making better use of our strengths and removing barriers to success.

You’re a senior leader and you don’t always know who you can trust to explore the challenges you face. Despite your many strengths, you sometimes lack confidence. You work really hard but don’t always feel you get credit for it. Sometimes you can’t get your point heard. You don’t get given high-visibility strategic projects that get you noticed and promoted, and you don’t have time for networking. You’re stressed and your work-life balance is out of whack.

My coaching gives you a safe space to explore these challenges and build strategies that take your performance, and satisfaction, from good to outstanding. I help you expand and deepen your personal power, especially in a professional context, so you can deploy your talents more effectively, and live a life of purpose, meaning and fulfilment.   

I’m Kate McGuire, a highly experienced coach and facilitator. I use an integrated approach, drawing on the most effective coaching and therapeutic techniques, to help you explore your personal psychology and build the future you want to be living.

I’m Kate McGuire. My coaching is for you if…


You believe that your power, presence and impact depend on who you are, as much as what you do.

You are good at your job, and you want to be outstanding. You want to expand your understanding of yourself and your impact on others. You are willing to work hard to bring about change.

You want to tackle root causes and embed personal change at a deep level, rather than identifying tactics for managing symptoms which then desert you under pressure. 

You are ready to ask yourself searching questions about your history, how it shaped you, and how it helps - and hinders - you now.

You recognise that intellectual knowledge is necessary but not sufficient - you want help transferring “knowing” into “doing” and “being” in ways you can sustain over time. 

You are bold and courageous and open to new approaches to learning.

You want support and you also want to be challenged - in how you see yourself, the mental models you hold about the world, and what might be possible for you at work and in life.

Come and say hello
