I’m not a naturally patient person. That means it isn’t easy being a patient. I’m not the type who often lies around on sofas, looking out of the window. I like to get things done, and resting when I am tired never used to feel like “doing” anything. This also means that my natural response…

Health and Wellbeing is high on our agenda to ensure our people are adequately educated and live long and happy lives. We wanted an external consultant to run a programme for our leadership and advisor population, Katie came highly recommended and certainly lived up to our expectations.

Having recently been to a NHS Pain Clinic and being advised to look at mindfulness, I have to admit I was sceptical and thought it would be mumbo jumbo! I attended a mindfulness evening with Katie and I couldn’t have been more wrong. Within days my pain had subsided significantly and the effects of mindfulness have been mind-blowing – literally.

Just wanted to say that Mum and I are very glad to have attended your Mindfulness event at Amaranth last week. We took so many important and positive message away with us and found your class very inspiring.

Katie’s mindful approaches to nutrition day for practitioners was a really valuable asset to add to my toolbox as a therapist.

Katie took time to understand the exact nature of our work and hence the challenges that our team face on a daily basis.
