Why Work With Me?
- Do you sometimes think to yourself: ‘Am I good enough for this?’, ‘Do I know enough?’, ‘Am I experienced enough?’
- Do you tend to be hard on yourself?
- Do you feel overwhelmed?
- Do you feel lack of motivation in yourself or your people?
- Do you feel stuck and hating yourself for not moving forward?
- Do you feel you’ve lost your ‘mojo’?
- Do you fear whether you’re a good manager, partner or maybe even parent?
Well, here’s the thing: we all feel like this from time to time. But if you experience these feelings rather too often – you’ve come to the right place!
My name is Kasia Murphy and I can help you find confidence in yourself, wherever you are in your life at the moment.
I’m a Business Psychologist and a Performance Coach, and I’ve developed my programmes to address all of these feelings and more, to start you on a journey to lifelong confidence.
Whether you join me on my training sessions, or in one-to-one sessions, you can expect the following outcomes:
- You’ll understand your own strengths and values, which in turn help to steer your life in the direction you want
- You’ll be able to get rid of self-doubt, and gain true confidence
- You’ll know how to connect with people, gain their trust and create meaningful relationships
- You’ll have clarity on how to manage yourself and others successfully
- You’ll feel empowered to take action
Who are my programmes for?
I help leaders in their FIRST MANAGERIAL roles;
I help WOMEN LEADERS who need a CONFIDENCE BOOST and handy tips for their leadership journey;
I help MEN who believe there needs to be more support for men in the workplace, building a safe and healthy COMMUNICATION CULTURE that creates trust;
I help ENTREPRENEURS who are starting on their entrepreneurial journey and suddenly they find themselves MULTITASKING, not sure whether or what to DELEGATE, how to stay afloat, and how to have confidence in the importance of their business;
I also help TEENAGERS find themselves in this very confusing world of SELF-DOUBT and insecurity.
My own leadership journey started over 20 years ago when I set up my own Language Centre, and after securing my first contract with the biggest pharmaceutical company in Poland at the time – to teach their managers English – I suddenly became a leader.
Having never been trained as a manager, I found myself employing my former colleagues. It was an interesting experience, to say the least.
However, the lessons I have learnt on how to connect and how to lead with empathy and compassion, were lessons for life. Over time I was leading five locations of the company and over 30 staff. I successfully sold my company after 10 years of running it.
Now, I’m helping people just like you, who have lost themselves in their roles (whether because it’s new and overwhelming, or because they’ve seen it all and don’t feel it anymore), and who are looking to get their confidence, purpose and motivation back.
“We had a great pleasure working with Kasia as our Leadership Team Coach. Kasia facilitated our Team’s development workshops which helped a great deal with opening pathways to some very honest and deep conversations within the team.
"We learned a lot about our personalities, leadership styles, the way we think, what triggers us, and best ways to work together. Kasia has a unique ability to create a great rapport with a group which allows for a relaxed atmosphere. She provided us with structured information and very useful tools. We left the workshops as a stronger, more open and empathetic team.
"Kasia is very open, professional and flexible in her approach with a great sense of humour. Our team left inspired and full of psychological tools which will help us become better leaders.
"We would recommend Kasia to any leadership teams who are considering deeper understanding of the psychology of leadership. Great work! Thank you Kasia!”
Edward Tansill, Director of Manufacturing Operations, S.C.Johnson
“Coaching sessions with Kasia were a complete life changer for me! They helped me acknowledge my team’s different personalities and I have become more self-aware of my own leadership style and have better and more meaningful 1 to 1 conversations within my team. Kasia was great not only at explaining new skills but also at supporting me in applying them. The coaching sessions helped me become a better, more mindful leader, improve my communication skills and build stronger relationships within my team. I would 100% recommend Kasia to any manager, regardless of how long they have been in their role!”

JOHN LEWIS & PARTNERS
"Since establishing her own company, Kasia has worked alongside John Lewis conducting a site-wide work/life balance survey, covering a large group of operational Partners at our flagship Distribution Centre in Milton Keynes. From the outset, Kasia has exceeded our expectations, delivering a suite of results which have provided an impressive insight into our working culture here at Magna Park. Kasia was diligent and professional throughout the project, which proved thorough and comprehensive in content. I would not hesitate in recommending Kasia to any forward-thinking organisations wishing to further explore their working environment."
John Munnelly, Head of Operations
"I had regular coaching sessions with Kasia. Among other things, the sessions made me realise why I was stressed and how to manage it.
"I also discovered a new approach to my management style which helped me with better developing my team, using my time in more efficient ways and creating a trusting environment for my people, where they don’t feel afraid of coming to me with anything. As a result of my coaching sessions with Kasia, I feel much more confident in my role and my team members’ performance has improved a great deal.
"Kasia has a very unique style of letting you discover things for yourself and helps you find ways of solving your issues. She is a very warm person with lots of knowledge and gives you great tools to work with."
Karl Haddon, Senior Site Agent, Taylor-Wimpey South Midlands
“With my recent chats with Kasia she has been a massive help to myself within finding ways to build my confidence and dealing with difficult situations. I have learnt a lot within a couple of chats with her and I use the different techniques in my day to day job role now. Kasia is so lovely, and listened to all my problems I had going on and helped me find solutions. Thank you so much!”

MEN'S PROGRAMME CLIENT
"My coaching sessions with Kasia have really helped to clarify what I want and how I can achieve it. My sessions with her have been very useful in helping me articulate challenges I am going through and guiding me to finding solutions. She has been very helpful and supportive and I would recommend her to anyone seeking help on resilience, confidence and leadership."

“Kasia was great in helping me launch my latest project. Without her, there’s no way I’d have got all the work done in the deadlines that I set myself. She was excellent in helping me get my thoughts nice and clear on paper, and then also setting deadlines and having some accountability towards finishing the project. It was excellent. Sometimes, as a self-employed person that can be quite difficult to do, so having someone to bounce ideas off, structure my thoughts, and actually put them into action was everything that I needed. Thanks Kasia!”
Adam Gibson, Owner and Head Coach
3M CORPORATE SECURITY
“I recently had the good fortune to work with Kasia on a need to improve my own work habits. I felt my daily routine needed improvement to improve productivity, but I was unable to effectively identify and correct the problem myself. After just one session with Kasia, I was able to make a change in one critical work habit that had a significant effect upon my workday. Kasia did not do this through lectures or motivational sermons. Instead she worked with me in a manner that made it seem as though I had discovered the problem myself and designed the solution. Yet, without her engagement with me it never would have happened. Kasia is nonjudgmental, enthusiastic, insightful, and very pleasant to work with. Any time spent working with her will be productive, enjoyable and time well spent.”
Robert Burnham, Manager for Europe
"I really enjoyed the coaching experience with Kasia. It was a great opportunity to take a pause, step back and reflect deeper about the matter itself and my internal motives and feelings. The theoretical background and explanations provided by Kasia helped me realize the mechanisms of my behaviour and consequences which they cause. I felt perfectly understood by my coach. Now it is my task to work at improvements, using the outcome of the coaching sessions.”
Vitaliy Vilinchuk, Sales Team Leader
