Who We Are

Release Coaching Team

Release Coaching coaches are all professionally trained and experienced. They either hold a credential with ICF – the International Coach Federation – or are working towards one.


Our founder, Kathryn Martens, is both a Business and Life Coach. She inspires others to embrace change as an opportunity to be “released” into their true potential and passions. She easily relates to people from diverse backgrounds, having lived in various parts of globe, and worked within corporate, small business, not-for-profit​, and government sectors. Her professional expertise is in both Learning and Organisational Development, and Business Management – having held Senior Executive roles in both. She is also passionate about small business – this being her third start-up business. Her life coaching is grounded by an understanding that life can be complex, and never stands still – having overcome her own life hurdles of grief, recovery from illness, and redundancies. She coaches with compassion, mixed with inspiration and a call to action. She holds a Masters in Adult Education, and Diplomas in Management and Coaching.
