The Anxious Mind

You are dealing with feelings of anxiety, stress, worry & over-whelm. 

This is impacting one or more elements of your life. 

And you just need it to change. 

You would like to get back to a more confident version of you.

Or discover what that can be, if you feel you've never had it. 

Career Coaching

You want to make changes to your career. Perhaps your current workplace does not feel like a safe or supportive culture. 

You feel a pull to a career that matches your values and worth.

But find your lack of confidence impacts choices, decisions or the interview process itself. 

Men's Well-being 

As a man you have a number of roles, perhaps career or family. 

You've never really identified with alpha-men traits.

Your feelings are impacting your life right now.

You're looking to get some practical & easy ways to understand yourself and others. 

To improve communication and change your thoughts, feelings and actions. 

Imposter Beliefs 

Impacted by feeling of self-down & over-whelm that are effecting your well-being, relationships with others and your work. 

You are achieving in one or more aspects of your life. But you don't really get to experience the joy of that success with the beliefs you have about yourself.

Coaching really is a safe & supportive space to be your true self.

Free of judgement. 

You play an active part in creating change, with me your coach & facilitator to guide you through ways to make that  difference in your life. 

No 'off the shelf' coaching programmes here.  Each persons coaching session's are as unique as the person you are.  

As your coach I listen, help you gain focus and support you with change. 

My aim is for you get the best for you.  Which means our sessions are varied, proactive. Offering new perspectives, to help you over-come barriers and get away from feeling stuck with a problem. 

Coaching works best for people ready and committed to taking action.  (Even if you need help figuring out the how's and what's of it all or overcoming feelings about the next steps). 

There will be a gap between where you are and where you want to be in life. 

Whilst it might feel daunting, unknown or a big investment at the start. Let me reassure you, coaching and change-work reaps all sorts of rewards. Afterall, our goal together is to help you transform your life for the better.

I am here to help you upgrade those inconvenient saboteurs of joy,  find new narratives and support you with the motivation to bring the life you want into reality. 

So you can crack on living life, easier, happier and more confidently you!

About JK

Hi, I am JK ( Jennie-Kate) Coach and Founder of JKChangeWork.

I tend to refer to myself as a therapeutic life coach. Because I see the benefit of addressing well-being needs when you look to create change. 

I became a coach, because I recognised how much time can be taken up in peoples lives, when you feel stuck, off-course or struggling with feelings that get in the way of living.  Often it's a case that we just didn't learn 'this stuff' when we most needed it. And I love helping people better understand how the mind works so you can change what you need to, for happiness & health. 

We all deserve a great life. To find balance,  flow and a level of freedom. Creating circumstances that match our values and purpose. 

I am an NLP ( Neuro-Ligustic Programming) Master Practitioner, Holding further qualifications in Advanced IEMT ) Integral Eye Movement Therapy, M-Bit & OldPan2GoTM - Braining Bargaining Techniques. 

Alongside a further range of Coaching & Psychological modalities that I intuitively weave into our coaching sessions together.


 Before starting my coaching business back in 2017 my background was in managing mental health & employability services across the private & third sector. Including working for one of the countries top diversity charities.

I have a great passion for nature and the outdoors, and alongside JKChangeWork run a nature-based coaching practice called WHERE THE MIND GROWS. 

I live in Leeds and spend much of my spare time swimming, camping,  festivals, walking with my rescue lurcher Leon, or reading.  

I believe self-development is the bravest most amazing thing you can do for your Self. And love supporting people to achieve life-affirming outcomes.
