Hi, I’m Katy Willis…
I’ve got a passion for helping you develop your strengths in order to live life to the full. My enthusiasm for personal development comes from my own learning from life situations such as stress, anxiety, depression, shame, judgement, self-judgement, overeating, analysis paralysis, bereavement, exam failure, redundancy, business start-up, career change, whistleblowing, complaints, as well as learning from walking with others as a medic and as a friend in their life situations.
I’ve been coaching individuals and teams since 2013, and have over 20 years’ experience as a GP in inner city London. I have been a GP partner, run quality improvement programmes, and have extensive experience facilitating and teaching adult groups from 4-50 people. I listen sensitively and have advanced communication skills. I am calm, enthusiastic, and have excellent organisational skills.
My coaching practice is shaped by positive psychology and wellbeing, mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Action for Happiness are an excellent charity whose aim is to create more happiness in the world and to enable people to take action to create more happiness – they bring together scientific research on happiness and wellbeing which is a large influence – no one wants an unhappy life.
Areas I cover in coaching: Happiness and wellbeing: work: desires: goals: diet: fitness: exercise: use of time: organisation: communication: leadership: assertiveness: personal development: self- awareness: personality preferences: confidence: emotional intelligence: career: performance: priorities: focus: perspective: work/life balance: relationships: family: teamwork: trust: conflict: accountability: success.
