What does coaching even mean?
Kathryn Ryder here. Have you ever wanted to find that person you could talk to about anything? That person that seems to get you, helps you uncover the why behind your thinking and works with you to put a plan into action? Or maybe you just need someone to listen? I can do all of those things for you. As a coach, I help people in whatever capacity they need. As a mom, I had two preemie babies...after 100 days in the hospital between the kids and myself...my world view has changed. I dug into some real tough topics, postpartum is no joke. I am now grappling with raising two kids in a chaotic world. It isn't easy. I have found some tools that can help. When we work together, I can help you find some more peace in your day, bringing some calm and clarity that you have been looking for. I have a bachelor's degree in biology and nursing, master's degree in health education, and I am a registered nurse (RN). I have completed the training for Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders through the Postpartum Support International and can help you identify if the thoughts and feelings you have are "normal/common" or if they need additional assessment and treatment. Please note: I cannot treat or diagnose PMAD's (post-partum mood and anxiety disorders) but I can help you identify resources, talk through your feelings and guide you in the right direction. I have worked in various corporate settings and managed large & small teams both in person and virtually. I specialize in working with all individuals who are looking to elevate their life. This could be navigating the waters of parenthood, postpartum, transition periods, climate grief and anxiety, or just becoming your best self

Can you diagnose and treat postpartum mood and anxiety disorders?
No, but what I can do is help you understand if what you are feeling, thinking or experiencing is normal or requires further treatment. Many women feel like the thoughts they are having are not normal and scary yet they don't want to express them. I can help you understand why you are thinking those things and when it needs further treatment and diagnoses.
How often will we meet?
Meeting frequency is totally dependent on your needs. On average we meet every other week but if more or less works for you...I am flexible!
Where and how will we meet?
If you live in the Seacoast NH area I would be happy to meet you in person or on GoogleMeet!
How much does coaching Cost??
We need at least 5 sessions to really get to know each other and make progress. I find 10 sessions to be a sweet spot which is why it's priced this way!
5 sessions - $300
10 sessions - $550
15+ sessions - Special pricing reach out to discuss!

Kathryn has been coaching me both personally and professionally for the past few years. I think it’s safe to say there isn’t an area of my life that she hasn’t helped me to improve. Kathryn helps me listen to and trust myself, removing the shame and burden of the “shoulds”, while helping me focus on my priorities for this current phase of life, and set goals for the next one. Everyone should have a Kathryn in their corner.
So incredibly thankful for Kathryn and her caring approach to coaching - over the years Kathryn has given me the support and tools to be the best version of myself in all aspects of life: work, school and personal. Her positivity, encouragement and genuine belief in me has drastically improved my confidence allowing me to accomplish things I never thought possible. There is no question to the fact that Kathryn is someone who has had one of the most positive and impactful impressions on my life – I can never thank her enough for all she has done!
