Kim Westlake

Professional Coach (CPC, CPRC, SRDC)

I am a Certified Professional Life Coach, Certified Professional Recovery Coach and She Recovers Designated Coach.  I’m also a Human Resource professional with over 20 years of experience working with people and businesses to achieve success.

Coaching, mentoring and helping others be the best version of themselves has always been a passion of mine. Sharing my professional expertise, depth of life experience, creating an interactive process of guiding people, in a personalized way, through a process of growth, problem solving, application and achievement creates joy for me. It’s about creating powerful, deep and trusting relationships -  the joy and knowledge of helping clients aspire to what they want to be, to develop their own inner resources, tools and self-reliance.

Having overcoming negative coping strategies myself, I understand the importance of recognizing and changing old behaviours that no longer serve us to move towards a life we truly desire. I also understand how tough doing the “inner” work can be and how important it is to be able to connect with others and our community for support.

I am grateful to live in the Sea to Sky area of British Columbia where I am surrounded by mountains, the ocean, lakes and trails. When I’m not coaching and spending time with my family, I’m outdoors, nordic or downhill skiing and hiking the trails with my dogs and partner Bruce.

Kim is compassionate, empathetic and is a powerful blend of warmth and professionalism; by nature, she is nurturing and encouraging as well as practical - offering skills and resources that have supported me through a painful and poignant life transition. Her uplifting personality makes it easy to open up to her. KS - Seattle, Washington
