I didn't use to be this happy in my own life! Mindset work and coaching changed my life for the better and it is why I became a life coach - to be able to help others, you, to improve yours too.
When I was a teenager I experienced very low self esteem. I compared myself to everyone around me, strongly disliked myself and my body. I wanted to be an actress and didn't ever feel like I fit in. I thought everyone around me was better than me. I became anorexic in an attempt, I think, to fit in, to be successful, to match the image of success in the 90's. Little did I know this was just the beginning!
Over the years that followed I healed and overcame the horrible affliction, the thoughts that consumed me took many years to feel in control of.
So much of recovering from an eating disorder or body dysmorphia is mindset based, I just didn't appreciate that at the time - I just did what I could to overcome it.
The thoughts we have determine how we feel and respond to the world around us. Likewise learning to be less impacted by what we're thinking is incredibly impactful in making sustainable change..
Your Second Life Begins When You Realise You Have Only One
I did the usual things a privileged (didn't realise it at the time) teenager did in the early 00's. I had always worked and so used my money to travel and spend time in Australia with family to continue my recovery after my eating disorder, I went to Uni and did a Media Degree, following which I worked in Kids TV alongside becoming a personal trainer, yoga teacher before spending a year in a full time MA in Acting
Alongside this I continued my work in health and fitness coaching but then in my early 30s I went through a divorce and this really rocked my world. It literally took the wind out my sails and derailed me emotionally, physically and financially
I lost all my confidence, self belief and ended up living back at home with my parents.
At 32 my identity had been shaken to the core. I became very depressed, had extremely low self worth and the acting career I had been so passionate about building literally crashed before it had a chance to properly take off.
I call this time my depth of despair, it felt like a pit I didn't know how to get out of. It was so physically painful alongside socially and professionally having an impact too.
From this depth of despair has come the life I know I was meant to live. I invested in life coaching myself, sold my half of an outdoor group fitness training company I was running, built confidence across all areas in my professional life, fell pregnant, miscarried, then fell pregnant again and had my daughter in 2022. During these years I decided to train as a Life Coach and NLP Master Practitioner myself.
Mindset work, creative exploration and at times hard grind has continuously kept me moving forwards. I would say personal development for me is something I truly relish, and I love to help you embark on your own journey of self discovery and growth.
Weirdly, I wouldn't change a thing about my past. It has been so dark at times, but without the darkness we can't fully appreciate the brighter moments. Our challenging times can really be the most powerful, impactful and positive when you know how to harness you mindset, skills, experience and belief in yourself.
The mindset skills I have developed as a result have been transformative and as a coach it gives me so much joy when I see you overcome people pleasing tendencies to step into your power so you live the life you are meant to live.
Come say hi on Social Media
" Working with Kate is like having someone on your team, which is really important if you don't have a partner, live in a different country to your family and have friends who are very busy themselves. No goal feels too big, no feelings feel ridiculous. I've already accomplished two of the goals I set with Kate in our first session and I'm beyond grateful."
