My focus is your confidence.
Confident clients and counting!
It’s like a mindset reset.
Want to wake up confident? It’s possible.
There is no way I can truly describe how we’ll work together, because we all will have different past and current experiences. But here’s what I can say: I work with people who realise that if they want their life to change, they’re going to have to change too – and this will take effort. But that’s where I come in – if you are ready for it (and willing to work for it), I can help you unlock your potential so you can become your very best self.
Have a peek into one of my sessions.
If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to have a private session, here’s your chance to have a look! Sarah* was one of my mentoring students, who did a series of sessions over 4 weeks. As you’ll see, she completed a lengthy questionnaire prior to our first appointment together. This not only gives us a baseline to work with, but also a strategic way to objectively look at what we’re trying to accomplish together as a team.
*Please note Sarah has given me permission to share this video with you. This session was done online, however you can also choose to come visit me in my office (benefit: get cuddles with Eszie & Eddie 🐶)
“But I’m not sure if you can help me”
I’ve listened to hundreds of people and learned each has a powerful story to tell.
Some stories were heartbreaking, others were painful, and others were horrific. While each story was different, one similarity rung true:
We think our problems will go away if we’re beautiful.
If I’ve learned anything from my personal experiences, over a decade of academia and hundreds of hours working with my clients and students, it’s that:
Our appearance is only the tip of the iceberg to the real problems we face.
My students and clients often hold a tremendous amount of shame, and it is this shame, rather than their weight or appearance, that holds them back from living the life they’ve always wanted to live.
Sure, changing what we eat and how much we move will influence how our body looks and feels, which is important.
News flash: that isn’t rocket science.
So of course, stuffing kale into our smoothies and doing squats might change the way we look, but it won’t result in miracles.
What we need to understand is that our bodies and minds are much more complicated than that.
So if you are one of the millions of people chasing the solution for long-term success, here’s what you need to understand:
Our body is the sum and reflection of multiple factors.
Start reconnecting with ALL of them.
Success is not in the numbers on your bathroom scales. It’s in the happiness you feel each day, the perceptions you have of yourself and your appearance, and your self-esteem.
Let’s get real here. Diets don’t work.
Changing the way you live your life is a massive commitment. Many of us get caught up in the before and after effects of a magic diet pill that we begin to fixate on the figures on the scales and what our waistline looks like. By understanding why you think and feel the way you do, only then will you begin to treat your body as less of a yo-yo and more of a vehicle to achieving your dreams.
That’s where there are no before and after shots of any mentions of weight loss with my program, because that’s just the tip of the iceberg if you want to see transformations in the long term.
Before I met Dr Katherine I was unhappy, overweight and had a number of health problems, but the biggest problem I had was that I hated myself every day because I couldn’t seem to ‘snap out of it’ and just lose the weight! I thought about my weight and weight loss/diets every day.
The changes I underwent with Dr Katherine were like nothing else I’ve ever been through. For the first time in a long time I was so kind to myself, and began to have days where I only had love for and pride in myself. The pressure was finally off and I could achieve every goal I had for myself including losing some weight, improving my fitness and doing things just for fun, but most importantly my mind was so clear and my soul was so healthy! My view on life was completely different and it became so much fun whilst achieving the things I had longed for so many years for.
The effects of Dr Katherine’s influence on me have been long lasting and I have never had the urge to ‘start again’ on a new fitness regime or diet, as I have finally learnt that life isn’t about following a diet perfectly, or starting a new fitness regime. Before meeting Dr Katherine, I was petrified of getting married as the first thing that came to mind was how disgusted I would be in the photos.
I am so thankful to have met her, as it was a huge turning point in my life – on my wedding day I saw a beautiful, happy bride, rather than the fat failure I thought I once was. For someone who knows you’re worth more than a reasonably satisfying life, Dr Katherine is a complete must-have!
I went to see Dr Kat about 3 months before my wedding in my own private hell because I had decided that if I wasn’t going to be ‘skinny’ for my wedding then the whole day would be a disaster. As soon as I met Dr Kat I instantly had a total girl crush. The woman is gorgeous and has such an amazingly magnetic and positive energy.
I thought I was there for ‘OK so you need to starve for the next 12 weeks and exercise until you fall over every day’ kind of pep talk… I could not have been more wrong. My experience with Dr Kat has transformed the way I view food and exercise. I now realise that she wanted to understand and tackle my long history with my unhappy body image for the long term, not just the short term.
She gave me really easy and yummy suggestions and recipes to tweak my current diet, so it was not dramatically different and really easy to follow and stick to. She basically taught me how to enjoy food and exercise again. I still have her in my head sometimes, but in a really positive way in terms of eating nutritious and balanced meals.
The final 12 weeks in the lead up to my wedding I wasn’t starving and grumpy. Shocker right?! I ate yummy and nutritious food and actually had heaps of energy to exercise. The weird thing was, even though I had a lot of compliments from people about how great I looked, the most important thing to me was that I felt amazing and beautiful in my dress on the day. The whole day was incredible and not because of my weight or measurements.
Thank you for changing my life and my attitude towards food and exercise Dr Kat. I am forever grateful.
3 months before my first wedding dress fitting I was in a panic, desperate to lose weight for the big day, feeling trapped in an endless and unsuccessful cycle of losing a little bit of weight then putting it back on. I was so glad a friend recommended I see Dr Katherine, but I certainly didn’t get what I bargained for.
In pursuit of perfection, I wanted was a quick fix like everyone else promised. What I got instead was an easier, more sustainable, more enjoyable, more permanent process. I lost weight, but not by obsessing over it and cutting out everything good, instead by achieving balance and letting go of all the stress and the rules. I changed my thinking for good. I accepted myself and my body. And best of all, I felt AMAZING on my wedding day, I felt free and healthy and gorgeous.
I could not be more grateful for the life long changes to both my mind and body that all started with Dr Katherine, and for once I keep gaining momentum not falling in a heap and eating chocolate blocks. Not every moment of every day is like an Instagram pic, but it’s real, sustainable and good for you, and I am healthier and feel happier and better than ever.
If you’re still breathing, it’s not too late to change.
