Kate's Philosophy

Kate is trained in a variety of counselling therapies and techniques which she will adapt to suit individual issues and personalities.

In order for counselling to be successful, it is important to build up trust. Kate's unique life journey has not only helped her to understand the complexity, anxiety and pain that life brings with it, but has enhanced her expertise as a counsellor. To be able to understand and respect another person's pain is one of the core ingredients for building trust.

Wellbeing is not just about the absence of disease or illness. It is the combination of physical, mental, emotional and social health factors. Linked to happiness and life satisfaction, wellbeing could be described as how you feel about yourself.

Kate will work with you and teach you the tools to find your path to recovery and your optimum wellbeing.

Workplace Workshops:

Workplace workshops are a fun, integrative way to engage your staff!

Did you know that productivity in the workplace is directly linked to the levels of stress and well being of the employees?

The Australian Psychological Society has found that "those in the workplace who had the highest levels of wellbeing and lower levels of stress and distress were people who felt supported at work, had strong leadership, clear role definition, felt their safety was looked after, that their employer cared for their mental and physical health and that they received adequate feedback and recognition." (source: Australian Psychological Society website, 2016)

Workshops usually run for 2-3 hours on topics such as stress management, wellbeing, balance, communication and relationships.

Contact Kate to discuss fees and to arrange a program that suits the needs of your company and your staff.
