Testimonials

  • “Kathy Rockwood is genuinely supportive and encouraging in her coaching role. She has given me tools and strategies to shape my path and move forward in discovering my strengths while helping me to discover ways that I hold myself back from success. She has helped me to see the road blocks that I put up that become barriers and has worked with me to take them down while allowing me self- acceptance of my personality. She has engaged me in conversations that have led me to discover my strengths and fears. She has helped me to establish a means of determining self-inflicted limiting factors and has taught me strategies to set goals that include measures of accountability. I have grown more self- confident through my coaching experience and I have become more willing to take risks”

  • ” I recently retired from the federal government after 20 plus years of working overseas and have been trying to figure out what I want to do with the next 20 years of my life. I wanted to move into an entirely new field but was uncertain how to move from volunteering into working professionally in the field.

    I was intrigued by the idea of using a Life Coach, someone who had worked professionally at a senior level and who could give me some realistic feedback on my ideas. Kathy did a lot more than that. Over five sessions she listened to my dreams, helped me identify what was really motivating me and then pushed me to move past the dreaming stage to actually map out what I needed to do to implement my idea. We worked on a couple of ideas before I decided what I wanted to pursue. Kathy, as a coach, encouraged me to see that changing fields mid-career is possible. She helped me break down the move into specific steps and skills and then asked me to figure out what skills I already had and which ones I needed to learn. Having a meeting every two weeks provided a structure so that I focused on the issue rather than postponing it to another day. By the end of the process I had a road map to my new career and the confidence to go after it. Kathy is a great motivator, and an excellent Life Coach. “

  • “Working with Kathy was an immensely positive and helpful experience. She is a wonderful and perceptive listener who asked on-point questions that addressed my concerns, hesitations and uncertainties. Our conversations helped me focus on my priorities and strengths, recognize my personal goals and feel more confident in the direction I am moving in my life. “

  • “I started working with Kathy Rockwood as a life coach several months ago. I have found her to be very professional, accommodating, easy to engage in conversation, and supportive. She uses session preparation worksheets to focus discussion and motivate follow-up commitments. Her open-ended questions foster creative thinking and elicit novel ideas that open avenues for further exploration. Kathy is an attentive listener, who helped me to gain valuable insights and greater clarity on a future direction that will be exciting and rewarding.”
