invest in yourself, like you invest in your home, possessions, job, business
"YOUR BODY IS LIKE A BANK ACCOUNT - A HEALTHY BALANCE REQUIRES YOU TO MAKE DEPOSITS AS WELL AS WITHDRAWALS." - Kate Morris-Bates
RESILIENT, EMPATHIC, HIGH-ACHIEVING, EXPERIENCED
Founder and CEO of InsideOut Wellness Ltd. since 2017, Kate refocused her 20+ year corporate executive career to prioritise her passion – supporting people to show up as their best selves through professionally qualified and accredited wellness modalities, from coaching to acupuncture.
An MSc integrative medicine specialist, registered with the professional standards authority, and ICF accredited Coach, Kate fuses eastern and western philosophies to health and wellbeing to create individual and corporate wellness & transformation progammes, focused on building wellness from the inside-out.
As an experienced senior corporate leader, team leader and as a Masters’ level clinical practitioner of integrative medicine, she identified the increasing demand for wellbeing focussed coaching, consultancy, and management support within the workplace and for private individuals. A founding principle of Kate’s practice is that how “well” a person feels physically, mentally, and emotionally will course-direct a person’s life.
tHIS IS ME, WHAT ABOUT YOU?
I WASN’T ALWAYS A THERAPIST.
FOR OVER 20 YEARS I WAS A SIX-FIGURE EARNING CORPORATE HARD HITTER FOR A WELL-KNOWN NATIONAL COMPANY. A HIGH HEELED WOMAN IN A GREY SUITED MAN’S WORLD. I LOVED IT. UNTIL MY WORLD IMPLODED IN MY MID-THIRTIES...
I WROTE ABOUT MY STORY IN MY BESTSELLING COLLABORATIVE BOOK BECAUSE I WANTED TO INSPIRE AND EMPOWER WOMEN TO RISE UP AND LIVE THEIR BEST LIVES.
FERTILITY AND ME
I wasn’t always the person you see now, for over 20 years I was a corporate hard hitter, a high-flying businesswoman, a Top-100 Exec leader earning six-figures in a FTSE-100 equivalent 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.
I loved it, until my world imploded in her mid-thirties...when you lose one baby, your perspective changes. when you lose six, your life changes. when it happens inside two years, your world changes.
For two years, I was either pregnant or recovering from a miscarried pregnancy and this took its toll on my body and mind. I knew something had to give. I’d reached the point where enough was enough. So I gave up my job, went travelling and invested in serious self-care. I managed my stress, my aches and pains and my shocking periods through acupuncture, lifestyle changes and coaching.
I also spent time in nature. It worked. I experienced my own transformation...and in 2015, my husband and I welcomed our rainbow baby into the world.
In a nutshell, things only started changing when I started focussing on ME. My mental, physical and emotional health.
