8 Session Exclusive Mindfulness One on One Coaching
Why an 8 Session Mindfulness Coaching package?
It can be hard to find the head space to think, let alone have quality focused time to ignite change and personal growth. Life can be unpredictable and it's becoming harder and harder to switch off. I know because I’ve been there.
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” Rumi
For 8 sessions we will work together weekly in person or online. Working this way is a powerful vehicle to embed mindfulness, clarity and clear purpose into your life. I will be your biggest advocate and work with you so you can fully inhabit this role for yourself. I will hold a space of love for you constantly over the 8 sessions and time between as a pillar of light for your goals and dreams and cheer you on to find and sustain the dedication to make real change happen. Because the coaching is one on one we can spread the sessions out over 8 weeks or up to 12 weeks.
The Science and Benefits of Mindfulness
The science of mindfulness is compelling. There are now literally thousands of peer reviewed studies showing that mindfulness can positively impact mental and physical health. Whether by reducing stress, improving sleep, boosting the immune system, increasing focus and calm or improving relationships, productivity and leadership skills, research shows that mindfulness works.

“Kate’s one on one mindfulness coaching literally changed my life. She provided the tools and motivation as well as support and encouragement to dig deep and set up new habits and patterns in my life. I am calmer and happier. I am better able to deal with situations that would once thrown me off balance and leave me there for days if not weeks. I sleep better and others started to notice the changes in me. Better still it made me take responsibility and ownership of my own “stuff”. I wont pretend it was always easy but Kate gave me the confidence to believe in myself to do this work. “
JW – Hastings
“Kate’s mindfulness coaching helped me when I was in a time of deep crisis. I don’t know where I would be without her support. I wish I had of had the skills she taught me before crisis hit. I do however feel now better equipped to deal with life’s hard times and this is evident to me every day. I now have a regular meditation, yoga and breathing practice and I can’t begin to say how grateful I am for this in my life.”
