Coaching Praise

  • When I first spoke to Kate I was on the verge of dropping all the balls I juggled as a working mother – on the inside I was struggling to find work/life balance and I desperately wanted to reconnect with my family and friends and find time for me again. I didn’t want to always be ‘busy’. What I loved about working with Kate was she was there to support me in my life outside of my workplace – she gave me a feeling that someone had my back. Kate helped support me to stand up in front of 150 people at a gala event in Uluru and speak about my own motivation and inspiration and I helped others in the process – and I couldn’t have done that as well as I did without Kate’s coaching. Thank you for supporting me, being a listening ear and allowing me to focus on MYSELF again.

  • Before I started coaching I was feeling really overwhelmed and being so busy meant I missed out on time for connection with loved ones and my own self-care too. I had to try it - especially after having seen my wife go through amazing change after a coaching series with Kate as well. After our first session I realised just how much I needed to define and explore the issues I’d been having and I needed to explore and then connect with my core values in order to make decisions I would never regret and I would feel less stressed about. I’ve created a compass for myself and I line everything up with my values now. Coaching with Kate made me feel more peaceful in myself and inspired and I am really grateful for Kate’s non-judgmental guidance.

  • Before I began coaching with Kate I felt disconnected, uninspired and like I was ‘moving through the motions.’ Then I met Kate and I knew I had help and someone on my side to really listen to what I wanted for my life. I’ve come away with new fun ways to interact with my children and a practice that allows me to feel more balanced, connected, strong, supported, excited, inspired and grateful on a daily basis. Kate was supportive, inspiring and energizing – the coaching series was so much more illuminating than I expected. There was a life changing ‘aha’ moment during our series that I would never have connected to in the same way on my own.

  • I have always worked with sporting coaches so when I became a new Dad and life was busy I began coaching with Kate because I felt like I was in a bit of a slump and needed a ‘gee-up’ to get me going again. I soon realized though, with Kate’s help, that what I actually needed was to take the foot off the accelerator for a while. Having someone from outside your life helping you see fresh perspectives that you can’t see yourself takes you on a journey of self-reflection about your own life. I have come away with a greater focus on taking scheduled periods of rest and learning how to let my mind switch off. The coaching experience with Kate was reflective, thoughtful and fun and if you’re thinking about coaching, jump in and try it and come with an open mind about what you want to achieve. You might surprise yourself.

  • Kate is an amazing coach. I found our sessions enlightening and inspiring, helping me find clarity and a strong sense of confidence. Kate brings all of herself to coaching: her intellect, warmth, positive nature, intuition and empathy and an uncanny ability to hone in on exactly what’s in the way of taking the next step. The clarity I received during our work together greatly helped me own my gifts and bring them into the world. I am so grateful to Kate for this inspiring, empowering and transformative experience.

  • I wasn’t ‘in crisis’ when I began a coaching series with Kate - I had an amazing family, a thriving business and was about to return to a corporate job that I loved. But between these things, I didn’t know how to truly nurture myself. I was dubious to begin with - but investing in myself has given me permission to slow down, appreciate what I have and strive for what I want. I have developed strategies to care for myself and I feel better able to care for others in my life. Kate was understanding, encouraging and motivating (and gentle if I needed her to be) and I could not recommend her highly enough! Coaching is truly for anyone who wants to really lean in to finding out how they want to live their life.

  • When I first connected with Kate I was struggling with overwhelm. I was running a fitness business off the side of my full-time education role, as well as struggling with developing a network marketing business, and really wanting to move into the online space. By the end of the first session I had worked through some serious mindset blockages, I worked out a clear and focused pathway for my life, I felt capable and I began to develop the most incredible and strong foundation for my dream online business. I am now far more in tune with my thoughts and belief patterns. I just feel so much more confident in my capacity and abilities and ‘at peace’ with my life. Kate was so generous in her ideas and direction, and there was never a time I felt silly or awkward discussing something with her. I'm onto my third series with her!

  • I was struggling to make decisions about my career and life, dealing with injuries and weight issues and trying to find a way to become the best version of myself when I began with Kate. I was around such positive, happy people at my gym and I wanted to find that happiness and confidence for myself too. Talking to Kate inspired to step out of my comfort zone and try coaching with an open mind. I needed help to create change. It felt amazing to have someone who I could be open and honest with and talk to without judgment. Kate has helped me let go of perfectionism and feeling the need to be ‘in control’ all the time! I feel so positive, enlightened and empowered – I have more direction in my life and I now have the ability to work out how to get where I want to go next.

  • Before I started my series with Kate, my life was fairly frantic and I was always struggling to find balance in my life – I wanted to be able to do things in alignment with who I was but I loved my job and didn’t want that to change. I found Kate so incredibly easy-going and approachable and I instantly relaxed during our time together. Since our coaching series together I’m less agitated and overwhelmed in my everyday life but most importantly I feel more balanced because I’ve learnt to say NO to things that don’t align with my values. I’ve learnt how to be more mindful about the choices I make, how to listen to my heart and what I truly want and that has seen me decide to move from Hong Kong back to Australia. Her calming, grounded, non-judgemental yet incredibly passionate personality really shines through in her coaching and so many others will benefit from her gift of helping others.

  • I met Kate at one of her events when I was struggling to make decisions about my business and personal life. I felt tired all the time and needed some clarity. With Kate, I learnt to allow myself time to think only about what I wanted for my life and that helped me feel more calm and in control. Identifying my core beliefs during the series with Kate has helped me with making decisions, managing my time better and I see the importance regular self-care has on my view of the world and how I feel about it. Kate has given me skills and encouragement that I now find myself using with my family and my staff too. This experience has been phenomenal and the experience was highly beneficial, fulfilling, gratifying and literally life changing. Thank you.

  • When I first connected with Kate I was struggling with finding where I fit in the world and being able to live a meaningful life that was truly my own and not comparing myself to others. I felt negative about work and other areas of my life and wanted to live my life more meaningfully. In the beginning, I wasn’t sure if I could justify paying for coaching, but after the first session I knew that it was worth every cent! My friends and family have seen a big change in me since I started working with Kate. I can't thank you enough Kate, you have made a world of difference and I am so grateful that you helped me make so many positive changes in my life. You were so thoughtful and patient and went above and beyond what I expected of our sessions together. I can recommend Kate to anyone.
