Welcome to my podcast!
I'm Kathleen Kettles and I love people and their stories. I worked as a psychotherapist for almost 20 years, and now work full-time as a solution focused life coach.
In each episode, I will be speaking to a guest about what success means to them. I will uncover the challenges they met on their way and discuss how they feel about where they are now.
At the end of each episode co-creator Remi and I will have a short discussion about the episode and what we felt about what our guest shared with us.
I really hope you all enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed making it.
Thanks for tuning in!
