Kate and Kapow Coaching's Team

I’m Kate Flory, I’m an inspirational leadership coach and trainer.  I help people to step into their inner leader to become who they really are.

My passion and interest in personal development and self-coaching started in my early 20’s – getting me out of some tricky situations from failed relationships, family disputes as well as illness.  At a time when I felt I had nothing and no-one I quickly realised I had myself, and that was enough.  Teaching me early on that there’s always a solution – you just have to ask the right question and be willing to listen to the answer, whether you like it or not!  I learnt that you can do it on your own, but with a coach, you can get there faster, more lightly and far deeper than you ever expected.

Difficulties in my life have taught me resilience, the power of inner belief, self-motivation, getting to really know myself, never giving up, and the power of choice.  Which is probably why Silver Lining, Inspiration and Curiosity are still my guiding business and personal values.

I’m passionate about the impact coaching and coaching-based conversations have on people’s lives and souls.  As a coach I believe that everyone should experience coaching and that managers of people and projects can become curious and begin to have coach-based conversations at work to engage, motivate and provide a safe space for others to be themselves.  For me leadership starts with self, the Inner Leader, and that everyone is a leader, they just need to recognise their leadership positions at work and at home.

Since 2002 I’ve teamed up with other like-minded professionals who share a passion for coaching, developing and inspiring others. Our joint expertise and training lies in areas of Co-Active Coaching, PQ Coaching, NLP, leadership, diversity and inclusion, business management theory, positive coaching psychology along with psychometric profiling.  

We believe our coaching, training and creative consultancy solutions have an immediate and positive impact on individuals, teams, the organisations as well as to the wider community.

Kate Flory

Coach & Trainer


Kate is an experienced Leadership and Mental Fitness Coach, trainer, facilitator and NLP Practitioner specialising in inspirational head-and-heart coaching and creating powerful, experientially based coaching training programmes.

Why I got into coaching came about after a decade of reading as many personal development books in order to get my chaotic life back on track.  I learnt in my 20’s that you are responsible for your own change and that anything is possible.  I hold this true for my coaching and workshop clients today.  Through inspirational training material, book or web recommendations and positive psychology coaching techniques, my heartfelt objective is to inspire the necessary change in them to make a lasting difference.

Coach & Trainer


Gwynneth is an experienced Executive Coach and OD/ L&D Consultant specialising in coaching supervision and
leadership  development.

My earliest encounter with coaching was a career-changing experience for me when I discovered that just by making small changes to my behaviour – how I was ‘being’ – I could create a very different, positive and beneficial impact for the myself and those around me. A few years later I was leading coaching training sessions with first line managers in a large FTSE financial services company. Watching people try out their own newly acquired coaching skills and reporting back on the changes it had brought about with their team members made me realise that I wanted to do more of this rich work which would help people develop more effective and productive relationships at work.

Rathy Thiruchelvam

Coach & Trainer


Rathy is an experienced Executive Coach, trainer and facilitator, specialising in coaching managers at all levels with difficult people issues

I'm an expert at making the hard seem easier. I do this through an innate understanding of what is playing out for my clients.  I am quick to notice patterns, observe subtle verbal and physical cues and be tuned into what is and isn’t being said. I have a unique ability to present this information back to my clients in a clear, and powerful way. These moments foster and harness my client’s confidence in themselves and help them see their potential now and the potential they’re yet to fulfil.  For me, leadership is about personal mastery. Showing up every day with the intention of being at your best so you can do your best.
