About Katherine Darbyshire Evans

I am on a mission to empower women and women entrepreneurs of small businesses and their teams to build their personal resilience and wellbeing to enable them to flourish and thrive both personally and professionally. Running a small business, whether or not you employ people, can be isolating and challenging. You can easily become overwhelmed by the workload, constant change and the responsibility it involves. Stress and burnout can creep up on you and I understand that as because many years ago it happened to me. Having personally experienced stress around some major challenges and changes in my life, including redundancy, severe injury and divorce I appreciate and value the importance and benefits of developing resilience and self-care. Women want to manage their lives better, both practically and emotionally and reduce the impact stress has on them, whilst achieving their goals and aspirations. As an owner and manager of people it is important that you create an environment where you, your people and the business can thrive and that requires focusing on creating a culture of resilience and wellbeing. As an experienced coach, with over 20 years in the fashion industry at director level, I help and support women to explore and understand the real underlying causes of their stress that undermines their resilience and help them learn how to manage their thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a powerful and sustainable way. This enables them to strengthen their resilience and increase their self-esteem so they can more confidently deal with the challenges that life throws their way. In addition to I speak on resilience and wellbeing to personal development groups and also write articles on the subject. I am also passionate about building resilience in children and young people to give them the skills needed for their mental health and wellbeing in an ever challenging world.
