At HERD we offer over 40 years of experience in a diverse range of areas. United by shared values about how humans and horses learn, Kylie and Kate have individual areas of specialism within each sphere of HERD's service offer.
Based on the skills and experience we have gathered during our working lives, we continue to enjoy supporting diverse client groups to develop in more traditional learning environments as well as along side our horses.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.” Marianne Williamson
At HERD our raison d'être is supporting development. We can do this through our work with horses or in a more traditional coaching setting. With over 20 years experience, Kate's coaching style involves helping people to recognise and fully utilise their own skills and solutions to realise their potential.
Kate’s coaching style is empowering, confidence building and insightful. Her approach is motivated by a belief that we learn best through support and challenge and sometimes benefit from the questioning insight of others to help us tap in to our own resources and solutions.
Kate has a diploma in Performance Coaching and certificates in Coaching for Confidence and Mindfulness for Peak Performance and Wellbeing. She is an NLP Practitioner, qualifying with the acclaimed Sue Knight in 2006, and has experienced first-hand the power of NLP to unlock limiting beliefs and empower themselves.
What to expect
Coaching can take place face-to-face, via Skype or the phone. During an initial coaching consultation we will explore your goals for coaching – why you are contacting us and what you would like to achieve. We will then agree a programme of coaching, generally between 5-10 sessions.
Giving you the confidence to speak with authenticity
Experiencing first hand the joys and challenges of raising a multi-lingual third culture child was one of the things that motivated Kylie to gain the TEFL(Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language).
Marrying over 20 years experience working in the complex worlds of Professional Services in the Law and Programme Management in the ICT Industry, Kylie currently supports Business Leaders in some of Luxembourg's leading organisations to fine tune their linguistic abilities. She also has a skill for supporting individuals in developing the confidence in English to express themselves authentically.

Coaching for New Parents
“Mindful parenting is the hardest job on the planet, but it’s also one that has the potential for the deepest kinds of satisfactions over the life span, and the greatest feelings of interconnectedness and community and belonging.”
Kate found her own journey to parenthood exhilarating and bewildering in equal measure. This prompted Kate to add to her 20 years of experience as a coach and developer and train to support new parents make the transition to parenthood.
Kate has a Diploma from the University of Bedfordshire in Postnatal Group Facilitation. This is supported with additional qualifications in Infant Nutrition, Birth and Beyond pre & post natal support for couples and Mum and Baby Exercise and Wellbeing.
Kate spent 5 years, supporting new parents in London, working for NCT, UK's largest parenting charity. On moving to Luxembourg, she worked with Well Baby Clinic, asbl, for 4 years and now collaborates with midwife group
Kate is motivated by the belief that all parents want to do the best for their family but that the role of parent can sometimes be bewildering. She supports parents to find their own authentic parenting style.
