Kate has supported her clients to successfully address issues such as addictions, disordered eating, depression, anxiety, childhood issues, self-esteem, self confidence and relationship issues.

Kate possesses an open and straight-forward approach yet is highly sensitive and responsive to her clients needs. 

She became interested in supporting others after a period of struggling with her own emotional issues. Kate found that through this time the most difficult aspect was the lack of understanding around her own feelings and not knowing where to find the right support. This created feelings of isolation and hopelessness which she found difficult to live with.

Kate shares an insiders understanding of emotional distress and offers true support and felt understanding coupled with professional education, training and experience to provide her clients with a well rounded, therapeutic experience.

In 2010 Kate began studying the gentle art of Esoteric Healing with Serge Benhayon of Universal Medicine. “It was here that I began to truly self-heal, by making new, supportive lifestyle choices, I experienced profound personal transformation as a result.
