In addition to my private practice, I am a volunteer Counsellor with a youth charity, and Trustee and Director of a charity providing child, young adult and family support services. I am also Director of Weightsense Therapy & Support, a social enterprise which provides support for people struggling with issues related to weight and eating habits.
I worked for many years in consultancy and management roles. My greatest interest was in supporting people to do their best work, and from 1999 I also offered coaching.
As well as being a Counsellor, I am a qualified and experienced Life, Management and Business Coach. For more information on my coaching services, please go to kayhoggett.co.uk
