A little more about me
Hi there! My name is Kaitlyn, and I am a Certified Life Coach & Rediscovery Coach that’s dedicated to helping you reach your full potential so that you can lead a happy, successful and extraordinary life. My passion is to help my clients succeed in every avenue in their life, while coaching and cheering you on at every step of the way. So, let me tell you a bit about myself. I grew up in Toronto, Canada with my mom and dad, along with my two older brothers. Oh, and dogs – lots of dogs! I began dancing at the age of 3-years-old, and loved competing in ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, and acrobatics.
My dance studio was my second home, and I’ve made some amazing life-long friends. I knew that dance was not my future, and became so interested in the mind and psyche, questioning why people do what they do, how our brains work, and psychology in general. Therefore, I just had to study it! I studied at Ryerson University where I obtained by Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, and then went on to do my Master of Science degree in Forensic Psychology from the University of Liverpool. I knew there was something else I wanted to study, and after some soul searching, I realized it was Life Coaching. This was my passion and my calling, and soon enough, I obtained two certificates in Life Coaching.
Life Coaching is exciting for me because I love watching my clients grow and become the successful, empowered, and positively transformed people they were meant to be. Seeing your success and increased awareness, acceptance, and goal-oriented self will give you that confidence boost to simply shine in all areas of your life.
When I'm not Coaching or in the office, I love to be with my family and friends, playing with my pets, traveling all over and indulging in new experiences. I also love volunteering. I have volunteered with the Centre of Addiction and Mental Health for several years in the past, and more recently, have volunteered at Elizabeth Fry Society of Toronto, where I have had a few roles within the organization. In addition to offering Life Coaching sessions for the participants in the My Start-Up entrepreneurial program, I also was a Court Support Worker at a courthouse in Toronto, as well as a Talk & Listen volunteer.
In addition to all of the above, I have had the absolute pleasure and honour to be an invited guest speaker for several organizations and institutions. I have hosted workshops and discussions on various topics for places such as: University of Toronto, TD Bank, Elmwood Spa, Elizabeth Fry Toronto. I've also been a guest on podcasts discussing topics such as happiness, reconnecting with yourself and values.
