Dan Ward Smith - Ex Premier League Rugby Player & Coach

Working with Kim has been one of the most rewarding and worthwhile experiences of my career. I have found Kim to be dedicated, professional and above all know's her stuff inside out. Kim has provided me with a range of tools made me a much better and more consistent player, & now I adapt these skills into my coaching. After working with Kim I feel more confident, focussed and I've set myself new targets I previously felt were beyond me..... You could say I know how to gain the edge!

Samuel Williams, TEDx Coach

What can I say; Kim is extraordinary. She holds that rare and enviable combination of confidence, competence and humility. As the presentation coach for TEDxBristol I had the privilege to stand alongside Kim in preparation for her talk; suffice it to say she delivered a powerful, moving and inspirational message. If Kim puts as much of her contagious energy and drive into all her enterprises as she did into her TEDxBristol talk, and I am confident that she does, I couldn’t recommend Kim highly enough for every aspect of her work

Peter Haigh, CEO Mintel

Kim is outstanding. She is flexible, challenging and supportive and she has the ability to encourage improved performance in a fun and relaxed way. The is no doubt she makes a huge difference.

Daz Parker International Stunt Woman & Professional Athlete

Kim has helped me achieve the impossible - to show me that I can do anything that I set out to do. Even the biggest dreams were made to look accessible and doable with her positive, outgoing personality which helped me push forward, taking what was in my head to actually physically achieving it.

Sophie Whitworth GB Triathlete & Ironman Kona

Over the past 5 seasons I have worked with Kim using her Mental Strength Coaching System as a massive part of my build up to my Triathlon season and in particular the ITU World Age Group Championships (Gold) and the World Ironman Championships in Hawaii. Through Kim and the training I have learnt how to focus my energy many weeks in advance of a major competition and not to waste time worrying about things I can't control. Kim manages to turn my limiting beliefs into real positives so on race day the pressure I feel really diminishes and my confidence to perform to the best of my ability is hugely heightened. Totally in the zone, I have always met my goals workign with Kim!
