Empowering you to live your best life

I work with those who are at a crossroads.    You know that something needs to shift in your life or career, and want to explore the possibilities and find the courage to make a change.      Using the Art, the Science and the Tools of Coaching, I provide a safe space to allow you to stretch out of your comfort zone and into transformational awareness.    Helping you to find and appreciate your own unique strengths and gifts; learn to understand that you are in control of your own actions and choices; and discover what you need to live your best life. 

about the coach.

Kirsty Rutter, B.Sc, ATC

I am an executive level Director who found success through hard work, dedication, a drive to continually expand my skills and knowledge, and ultimately by trying to be the perfect employee.     It was a few years ago when I came to a critical crossroads in life, and became aware that I had lost myself attempting to be the person this world told me I should be.   

I began my training as a professional coach to discover the person buried under all the unconsciously learned behaviors and mindsets which had been collected over a lifetime.  The process of coaching has helped me to uncover my personal values and authentic self, and I am learning to live by those values.

I embraced the coaching process from two perspectives; as a Coach, and as a Coachee.       If I could walk the path to fulfilment through self-trust and self-compassion, then I could hold the light for others to do the same.

My coaching sessions with Kirsty could not have come at a better time for me in my career. I had just started in a new, more strategic role in my organization and was feeling a lack of confidence in my abilities to take on this position. Kirsty worked with me at the outset to determine my goals for our coaching sessions and ground me in what my strengths are. She used her inquisitive nature and quiet questioning to allow me the space and opportunity to examine where my self-doubts were coming from and strategies to overcome them. Each session Kirsty would check in with me on my 'big' goal and then what I needed to work on, ultimately many pieces related back to my goal and we used smaller incremental steps to get there. Kirsty helped me to see my values as a leader, used my strengths to develop my own strategies and improved my communication and self-confidence. Thank you Kirsty!

Kirsty has been my coach for two years. Because of the time we have spent together, I have improved both my work and personal relationships. With Kirsty's guidance, I have gained the tools and the insight that I need to continually improve myself. Our sessions have been invaluable to me. 

Kirsty seems to have an innate wisdom that guides her questioning and direction as a coach.   In our sessions she knew how to get me to dive below the waterline in a way I felt safe. She helped me gain insight and light bulb moments that helped me tremendously on my journey. 

I have the good fortune of having Kirsty as my coach.  Kirsty has the skills and compassion to keep you moving, learning and growing on whatever path you choose for yourself.   Hiring Kirsty as a coach is one of the best decisions I have made.
