Kish is a very seasoned and professionally certified coach. She is a member of the ICF and has attained her PCC status since April 2012. Kish’s specialty is leveraging mindfulness in leadership coaching by using down to earth mindfulness techniques. Her coachees include team leaders, managers, SME business owners, entrepreneurs and individuals. She has accumulated over 1300 coaching hours to date. Kish is coached and supervised on a regular basis in order to keep herself mentally and physically on top form for her coachees.
Before starting her coach journey, Kish has worked 20 years in British Telecom, a huge telecommunication corporation starting as a computer programmer. There she was a pioneer for the concept of working from home as early as 1988 before the advent of personal computers and mobile phones and achieved great work life balance for both her work and family. Kish knows that through her personal life and its ups and downs, her leadership and mindfulness skills have been a solid foundation to work things out. Vulnerability and resilience are key skills for today’s leaders and it is through this that Kish became recognized as a successful mindfulness instructor and coach.
Kish challenges herself continuously with achievements including stand-up comedy, paragliding, and back pack hiking on the Camino pilgrim route.
Kish has been on the UK ICF board as Director of Membership for 4 years. She was educated in computer studies at the University of Portsmouth.

I loved being coached by Kish. Kish has a lovely warm and appreciative presence. Her deep wisdom and gentle, yet challenging questions helped me reflect and move forward. Kish listens very intensively — for things that I said and also things that I did not say. She offered alternative perspectives without ever intruding or making it sound like she knew and I did not.
Having now been through the (coaching) process I am a convert! …it gave me a reason to take time out of my day to look at my business at a much more strategic level. Having Kish challenge my comments and statements at a deeper level actually brought to the surface a number of quite challenging issues. These have now been dealt with and … left the business much stronger as a result.
I highly recommend Kish as a well-trained and competent Coach. Kish embodies the qualities of both professionalism and heart. She works with focus and creativity, and understands the complexity of leading and managing in modern organizations.
