Katherine Baldwin is a former international correspondent for Bloomberg and Reuters who had to battle with her mental health at the height of her career. Over a 20-year personal development journey, Katherine has learned to treat herself with respect and kindness, and now helps others spot the signs of addiction and self-destructive behaviours so they too can manage their emotions and stresses in a healthy and sustainable way. Katherine now educates and supports organisations to ensure they prioritise the wellbeing of their employees to help them reach their full potential whilst breaking the stigma surrounding mental health.

Although leading a life which many people would envy – being financially stable, reporting from Mexico and Brazil, and a political correspondent who has travelled the world with former British Prime Ministers, Katherine was living a life which caused her to have a breakdown. Katherine has travelled all over the world, from China to the United States, Japan to Israel, reporting on elections, tsunamis, wars, terrorist attacks and earthquakes but struggled with imposter syndrome and chronic anxiety. This led her into the vicious cycle of binge eating and then starving herself, binge drinking and then excessively exercising to try and cope with her stress.

From the lowest point in her life, Katherine started to rebuild and began recovering from these addictive behaviours and was determined to find a purpose in her pain. Studying psychotherapy and coaching Katherine began to develop tried and tested tools to help high-achieving and busy professionals to balance their success with their wellbeing. Katherine helps people to find their inner fire and passions so they can live a life and build a career which does not leave them burnt out. As a testament to her speaking abilities, Katherine has spoken to S&P Global Ratings, Bureau Van Dijk, London’s Women of the World Festival, Bristol’s Wild & Well Festival, Voucher Codes and the Valuation Office Agency.

The published author ofHow to Fall in Love‘, Katherine shares her story of self-destruction and dysfunctional relationships to self-love and healthy marriage. She is also a prolific writer of articles having been published in The Sunday Times, Good Housekeeping, The Daily Mail, Psychologies and The Guardian. During her talks, Katherine shares her personal story of self-harming behaviours and is proof that self-love can turn your life around. A truly inspirational woman, Katherine is dedicated to helping others through the hard times they face, be it burnout, anxiety or depression. Do not miss your chance to hear from the inspirational Katherine Baldwin today.

Official Testimonials

Katherine Baldwin is regularly booked to engage audiences at events, read their latest feedback below:

“I loved the book. I thought it was fantastic. I was really inspired by it. I learned lots from reading the book and I knew that we needed to get Katherine to come and talk to our Psychologies audience”

Suzy, Former Editor-in-Chief of Psychologies Magazine

“Katherine was very personable and her talk was informative and relatable. The brief was met totally and the structure of the talk was good. Every time I thought of a question, it was answered. I think a lot of people may have recognised some of the signs in themselves and realised they were engaged in addictive behaviours”

Kate, Director of Marketing & Business Development, Electrical Industries Charity

“Katherine’s openness and bravery to share really helped to make her talk authentic. She was able to share her experience in a positive way to help others and her passion for this shone through. Her talk helped me to identify red flags and gave me positive, practical tips to deal with things and turn them around. I would absolutely recommend Katherine as a speaker”

Electrical Industries Charity

“I think the talk was pitch-perfect in what it covered and how it was delivered. I think the attendees really benefited from it and I hope it will open up further and deeper conversations. I was particularly struck by your story about being in the hotel room and eating the minibar. I think it really gave the rest of your talk authenticity and honesty because you really had gone through it and come out the other side. I would wholeheartedly recommend Katherine as a speaker. She understood what we were trying to achieve with her presentation and was helpful and professional, and the actual talk was beautifully presented and of immense benefit to the audience”

Karen, Office Manager, Voucher Codes

“Katherine’s story resonated with a lot of people and made us stop and think, wherever we are on our wellbeing journey. I know colleagues felt really safe to share personal stories they may not have done previously. Thank you, Katherine, for creating that environment”

Charlotte, Head of Operational Leadership Capability and Wellbeing at the Valuation Office Agency

“As well as an amazing journalist, Katherine is an inspiring speaker. Katherine hosted a webinar on ‘Strengthening Your Confidence to Optimise Performance’, which was much appreciated by all attendees. She provided advice and techniques on how to adapt through the COVID 19 period. Her talk blended her personal experience with her vast professional experience. If I had the opportunity, I would take advantage of Katherine’s speaking and motivational services again”

Florentina, Bureau van Dijk, a Moody’s Analytics Company

“Thank you, Katherine – it was such a courageous story and yet inspirational for others (including myself) on how to spot the warning signs and how to look after yourself before you become burnt out. Your words were very wise and soothing”

Tracy, Regional Valuation Lead at Valuation Office Agency

“I felt understood and could relate to how you felt. You covered everything I hoped to hear about – your story, your suffering, your healing, signs to look out for and how to start conversations with others. I’m more aware of how I see food, my control over it and my body, and my relationship with the scales. Katherine’s talk was empathetic and sensitive, and her concern for other people and their mental and physical health was obvious”

Voucher Codes
