My Associates

Kristin Murray |  Andrew Morrison | Mal Winnie

Our team of Associates are all highly skilled and passionate about their areas of expertise.

Kristin Murray

Career Coach

Kristin’s passion for building confidence in people through effective coaching, to help them see different perspectives and achieve their goals is what makes her motivated, energetic and driven. 

An experienced leadership and career coach, Kristin has helped many people progress in their careers by helping them understand how they’re able to make an impact. Kristin uses a proven strategy which enables candidates to be able to demonstrate a point of difference, not only in their CV but also in interviews.

It’s not necessarily the best person who gets the job, it’s the person who interviews the best.

When not busy coaching, Kristin is a busy mum to two boys and a fluffy doggy princess called Zoey. Bike riding, travelling and cooking are favourite pastimes with the family. 

Kristin has over 20 years of leadership experience, is a certified Life Coach, Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and also holds a Diploma in Business Studies, Management and Human Resource Management.

“Kristin has a supportive and encouraging coaching style and I felt like she really got me. I found her coaching to be of great value in helping me secure a new role. After completing the Career Coaching programme with Kristin, I now have new ways of looking at what I’ve achieved. I’ve been able to unlock my achievements and reframe these, which then clearly articulates the value I am able to add to an employer. I have more confidence and new techniques to enable me to prepare properly for an interview. I’m confident in being able to answer interview questions now where as before I wouldn’t have known what to say. I was unsure of what my CV should look like or what an employer was looking for, but now I know and I have a powerful looking CV to help me move forward.”

Andrew Morrison

Mindfulness & Resilience Trainer

Andrew has a passion for connecting with people to uncover and discover their strengths. He’s particularly interested in resilience, wellbeing and mindfulness – and it doesn’t take much to get him enthusiastically sharing about these topics!

His love of learning and wanting to make a difference has lead him to become a trainer and facilitator in these areas.  He’s also a strong advocate for men’s health and wellbeing.

As a long-time student of personal development, meditation and yoga Andrew brings more than 20 years of experience in mind-body-awareness practices to his work.  He is a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) facilitator, a Pause Breathe Smile Mindfulness in Schools facilitator and Conversational Intelligence (C-IQ) Enhanced Skills Coach.  He’s also a certified Life Coach, Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and an mBIT Professional Coach.

In his spare time Andrew loves to get out in nature, be with family and friends and tap into his creativity.
