1-2-1 WELLNESS COACHING

Feeling shattered all the time? Not enough energy to do everything you want to to?

Ahhhh the burning questions of midlife - is this IT??  Is this who I am now?  How did this happen?  Where did that weight around the middle come from?  And why do I feel knackered all the time?

That head-scratching moment of realising that somewhere between 35 and now you lost yourself, and you want to find yourself again.

You want to feel like you matter.  You want to bring the sass back.  You want to love the person in the mirror. 

You want to feel like YOU.

To do this you need to first understand how it did happen - all of those habits you probably have not really thought about before.  And then understand how your habits are serving you, in a way that has never been explained to you before.

Then through my signature system "6 Pillars of Wellness" we will work through your lifestyle, identifying areas you can make simple changes to get you kick-started towards a healthier way of life.

SLEEP | MOVEMENT | FOOD | SEASONAL HEALTH | STRESS | PREVENTATIVE THERAPY

My system will help you show up as that confident healthy professional midlifer - male or female.  In full understanding and respect of your unique self.

I provide straight-talking wellness coaching, based on years of education, research, and experience. I am a specialist in evidence-based alternative medicine, who is passionate about bringing personal wellness to the top of your to-do list.

If you are interested in this but aren't sure if it's for you, send me a message, I love to chat!

 

how's your health?

Do you ever feel like your body just doesn’t serve you properly no matter how hard you try to be "healthy" by eating the "right" foods and by hitting the gym regularly?  The bloat just doesn't shift, or the energy levels refuse to improve...

Or that you just can’t seem to get a helpful answer from anyone about THAT thing that is niggling away?  Maybe it is peri/menopause.  Maybe it is living with constant fatigue or pain.  Maybe it is the fact you are really struggling to commit to your health even though you know it would make all the difference to your life, if only you understood how.

But you know you have a brand new chapter of Midlife to liveAn opportunity to be better than you were before. 

Because you have experience of a life already lived, and the opportunity of a life to be lived.

And you want to feel as well as you can.  You want to feel strong.  You want to feel sexy.  You want to feel grounded.  You want to feel confident.

You just don’t know how to make this life of confidence, contentment, and self-compassion a reality.  And if you are really honest, whether you are committed enough to yourself to make the change happen...

We can set up a free 15-minute discovery call about this if you want to explore this, in our call we will discuss where you are now, where you want to be and how we can work together to achieve your goals.  Just send me a message!

change your habits

change your life

A simple way to change your habits. 

None of us stay the same physically, mentally or emotionally as we mature.  The things we used to do, to eat, to drink, affect us differently.

It’s time to break old habits which no longer serve you.

It’s time to create new wellness habits which serve your body better.

My unique 6 Pillars of Wellness coaching programme will help you create them.

SLEEP | MOVEMENT | FOOD | SEASONAL HEALTH | STRESS | PREVENTATIVE THERAPY

Do you want to feel strong, confident, grounded, healthy?

What if there was an alternative way of understanding how your body, your mind and your emotions are connected, and how they affect your Wellness?  So you can find your own wellness path and achieve your Goal in a way that works for you and your unique physical, mental and emotional self. Rather than blindly following someone else’s path.

There is a way.  Through my 6 Pillars of Wellness Programme, covering:

I HEAR YOU

I completely and utterly get it. I wasn't always a Therapist.

For over 20 years I was a corporate hard hitter, a high-flying businesswoman, a Top 100 Exec leader earning six-figures in a huge national company, leading 600+ people, and being responsible for hundreds of millions of pounds. It was one of the biggest jobs of its kind in the UK.

Then eight years ago my body told me loud and clear, burnout was happening.

Enough was enough.  I knew if I wanted to change my health I needed to start showing up for myself.

Wellness is not a single event.   Nor is it a single therapy.  Wellness is a way of life. It is an ongoing investment, which only gives you a return when you take responsibility for it, like you would your business or your job.

SIMILAR IS NOT SAME.

When it comes to the wellness of your body, your mind, and your emotions, what works for someone else might not work for you, because they are not living in your body, with your exact history, your exact circumstances and your exact signs and symptoms.  Similar is not SAME.

Let me give you an example of someone with overwhelming daily fatigue who wanted to get fit and took up high-intensity workouts to do so.  Because that’s what “Karen” did, and it worked for her.  And it is what you read about everywhere.  But if you have overwhelming fatigue, expecting your body to cope with the pressure of a HIT class is a bit like constantly whacking a bruise and expecting it to get better.

So it’s time to work on who YOU are in a way that works in YOUR life.  Realistic healthy habits, which will help you achieve your wellness goals, through an alternative approach to health and wellbeing.

We can start your journey by having a no-obligation informal chat about where you are now, where you would like to be and how we could work together to achieve your goal.

invest in yourself

like your business

DO YOU INVEST IN YOUR FAMILY, YOUR BUSINESS, YOUR HOME BEFORE YOU INVEST IN YOURSELF?

It is a fact that so many of us invest readily and without guilt in our businesses, and our homes, our kids, even in our cars and clothes because we know it is important for their long-term return, profitability, sustainability, maintenance, not to mention pride.  But a lot of us don’t do the same for our physical, mental, and emotional health.

Why is this?  Guilt?  Embarrassment?  Shame? Lethargy?  Denial?  Too difficult?  No time? Something else?

What if you invested in yourself?

Lots of people I work with start out in the same position as you are right now, feeling the way you do about your body and your wellness.  The little itty bitty shi**y committee sitting on your shoulder nagging away telling you “should” do a million things to change your wellness.  But none of them are working for you.

We need to be honest about what we want and how we want to do it.  Being a green-juicing-bendy-Wendy is not high on everyone's wish list after all.

If it doesn’t work, there is a reason, and I would put my house on it being something to do with alignment with your goals and lifestyle.  And until you understand these, nothing will change.

If we invested in ourselves in the same way as we do our businesses and our possessions, we should expect to see a return which reaps even greater rewards because we would have more energy and focus to be more productive, more focussed, more present, and more motivated!

We will live in our bodies a lot longer than we will live with our businesses.

You will only ever profit from a decent investment in your own health and wellbeing.

The footsteps you take on your wellness path will course direct its outcome.

I get it feels like a lot of money to spend on yourself.

I get it feels a step into the unknown.

I get it feels uncomfortable.

I get you are questioning if it will work.

I get it because I felt it too when I first started looking into how I needed to look after myself better.  But the more I understood, the more comfortable it became.  The more it made sense. The more it worked for me.

You are reading this page for a reason.  You know you need to invest in yourself the same way you invest in your business, your home, your family, your possessions.

HI, I'M KATE...ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MYSELF

hello...thanks for reading my site.  Welcome!

I am a nature-loving outdoorsy mum to a small person and a fur baby.  I love red wine and tea and a good book.  I have more qualifications and credentials than you can shake a stick at because I believe in lifelong learning; I class myself as both a Student and a Teacher to like-minded individuals who are committed to improving their health and wellbeing through achievable steps taken every single day.

I'm ex-corporate executive who found my own wellness path after a story of stress and infertility.

That's why I am now a passionate Educator of others who are on their own Wellness Paths.  I do this in my Clinic, and Online. I also do this through my writing in various publications too.

I believe Healthcare needs to become about prevention as well as cure.  In my opinion and experience, there is no single right way, and different people need different approaches to be their best selves in the body they were blessed with.

I am looking forward to supporting you.

NEW HABITS

NEW OUTCOME

If you want to change the outcome, you need to change the approach.

We can choose to let our hormones, health issues, aches and pains, the lines and wrinkles that come with the ageing process define us and dictate our wellness path.

Or we can choose to switch things around and focus on improving ourselves.

We can't turn back time but we can manage the time we have now.

We need to respect our bodies – they have served us well and need to continue to serve us well.

We can choose to take back control of our bodies, our minds, and our emotions to find another way to show up with the confidence, sass and self-belief of midlife.

That’s when we go from feeling like we don't matter, to knowing we absolutely do matter.
