Kathy Shaw - Life Coach

About Kathy​

I am an experienced Healthcare professional having worked as a Registered Nurse, Supervisor, Educator, Mentor, and Manager in both the Public and Private Health Sector. While nursing, I specialised in neo-natal and adult intensive care and then moved into education and leadership roles. It was as an educator and mentor for nurses that I realised my passion for helping others to succeed and shine in all aspects of their life. I have mentored many nurses through their post-graduate studies and the challenging experiences they face in their work.

The passion I discovered for helping others led me to train as a Life and Abundance coach where I can now fulfil my own goals and aspirations by encouraging, inspiring, and motivating others to fulfil theirs.

Supporting me in my life goals is Neil, my husband of over 27 years, and my three adult children.

Personal Coaching

These sessions are for those who want to make a meaningful change. It enables you to take control of your life, and to achieve your goals. You may have come to the realisation that you are stuck or you want to pursue a dream you have. As a life coach, I can help you to achieve this.

One-on-one sessions either in person or online using Skype or Zoom. In these sessions we will explore how you can get more out of your life, and take those big steps towards achieving your dreams. 

Clinical Supervision

One on one supervision sessions to allow for deep reflection on clinical practice or your working environment. I aim to enable the supervisee to achieve, sustain and develop high quality practice by supporting them.

 Supervision values the development of professional and practice knowledge, while also maintaining and safeguarding standards of practice.



I offer workshops to small or large groups and focus these on Healthcare Professionals who are either new to the profession or needing refreshers on how best to manage in maintaining their overall well-being. The topics covered include:

  • Personal development
  • Self care
  • Managing workload/shiftwork/home life
  • Managing relationships
  • Reframing how you think
  • Building resilience


“I saw Kathy to help me determine what direction I wanted my life to go in and help discover whether decisions I was making were in fact what I really wanted for my life. Kathy was very professional and identified obstacles that I had put in place to stunt my own personal growth. She helped me to clarify my goals and gave me tools that I will be able use when obstacles arise. I came away from my sessions with Kathy with an increased motivation and an excitement about my future. Kathy is easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable even when discussing big issues. I would not hesitate to recommend Kathy to anyone who needs clarity regarding future goals and assistance with tools and techniques in order to reach goals”
Registered Nurse

My experience with Kathy - through her personal life coaching sessions is remarkable. Kathy has assisted me in understanding my own personal values and where those values sit in regards to every aspect of my life. Kathy’s compassionate nature allows for open and honest discussions - which has assisted me in goal setting and identifying what is most important, not only looking forward but also being present in every day.

Kathy has helped me identify my values and to use those values to work towards setting goals for the areas in my life that have been neglected for some time. If your stuck in the same thought patterns or unhelpful behaviours or you are just not sure what is next for you then Kathy is the person to talk to. Kathy’s friendly, relaxed but professional approach has left me feeling supported, challenged and excited about the possibilities. I will definitely be back to see her soon.
