I knew from before my treatment began that there would be scars, both emotional and physical. To be honest, they initially seemed like the least of my problems when it came to surviving or not, compared to the long list of other potential side effects from both the treatment and the cancer itself. However as…

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…

After a hideous crash diet in my late teens and a 5st weight loss in just 6 months, a decade of disordered eating followed. Painful cycles of bingeing and deprivation and a complete disconnect from enjoying food plagued me on an almost hourly basis. Food was forever on my mind. I can’t remember the exact light bulb moment during Katie’s teaching but I was nodding uncontrollably throughout. I left, totally and utterly renewed. I am now in my fourth year of being grateful for nearly every mout…
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. Katie is so easy to listen to and quite an inspiration. I was that impressed I went again the following week! I am looking forward to continuing my …
Understanding the science that explains why what we eat impacts our mood and concentration has inspired me to eat well again!
Katie’s mindful approaches to nutrition day for practitioners was a really valuable asset to add to my toolbox as a therapist. I often refer back to her principles of mindful eating, both for myself in my daily practice of mindfulness and gratitude as well as for my clients. What I really love about this course is it is reminds us to really think about our relationship with food and the joy of food, which can often be distorted by the media and current food trends.
Katie is an inspirational speaker who positively engages her audience. Her friendly and approachable character makes listening and learning a pleasure. Undoubtedly a lady with incredible talent and enthusiasm for her subject.
Katie is an incredible teacher, confidant & Warrior Woman. Meeting her for the 1st time was like meeting a sister I already knew. Her extensive professional experience of Mindfulness, healing, female Mental Health knowledge & body/mind Nutrition – from her practical training & impressive professional qualifications – meant I got a whole lot more than I originally expected when booking my 1st class! I am now exited to see her every week Strongly recommend for any woman, book a course or a cla…
I have just completed a four week mindful meditation course. I have tried before, but this time with Katie explaining so clearly and knowledgeably and using all her own and our experiences… I can finally say it has clicked!! I am practicing daily and feel calmer yet energised. I can wholly recommend her classes. Loved meeting the others in the group too who I also felt learned a lot. Here’s to more practice x
I started working with Katie a few weeks ago and the impact she has had on the way I now think about things and handle certain situations is brilliant! I often find myself thinking ‘what would Katie do?’! Her classes are a great support and the way she teaches is so easy to follow. I couldn’t recommend Katie enough
Katie is a very lovely, calm person to be around so the atmosphere in her sessions is peaceful and relaxing. She is very approachable and has good interpersonal skills. She is very empathetic and wise, and her suggestions are so relevant to every day life.
I would recommend this online course to anyone trying to deal with anxiety. The explanations are excellent at helping me to understand the meaning of mindfulness and ultimately, how it can positively affect my everyday life. Thank you Katie for making such a good course! Well worth watching!
