It’s late August 2020 and Kate is finding a way to weave together all facets of what brings her heartfelt joy in tandem what she has always loved and where her strengths lie. But she is kind of zigging while the rest of the world seems to be zagging!

For the past 17 years, she has been very busy and happy changing lives, having a total ball while doing it. She has been running a global coaching business combining the following:
*Gallivanting around the world to run personal (Sacred inner journey) and writing retreats
*Keynote speaker at international conferences, Women’s events and C-Suite boardrooms
*A fore-runner in the online coaching space since 2005
*Thriving coaching business – both with individual clients and teams, face to face and online
*Knee-deep in cluttered homes to shift lives, hearts, homes and offices. Her popular book CLEAR YOUR
CLUTTER, numerous articles, interviews and TV appearances share her deep love and respect of that process.
*Published 4 books –  with #5 to be released later in 2020.
*Created 11 online courses (and subsequently sold that IP)
*Written articles for magazines, newspapers and her blog – see media page
*Run countless Mentorships, Bootcamps and Retreats to support clients to write books along with international
book mentor, editor and ghostwriter Sarah Bullen. Those two of heaps of fun together and you should join one of
these if you are an aspiring writer!

“What are you being called to do in life? Usually we have to make time to pause, listen, immerse and bravely strip away that which truly no longer serves us. Terifying isn’t it? Maybe it’s time to start asking the right questions of yourself, your life and what you are spending time and energy on?”

And now it’s time for her to follow her heart and share ALL of herself to the world in a new way.
She is trusting herself to take the next mindful step, harness it all and weave together something new, meaningful and uplifting!

While still in a reflective space of embracing the unknown GAP between “No Longer…and…Not Yet, she will be offering more:

(She is currently scaling back a lot of her online group work – Mmmmm ironic as the whole world, including grannies, are just getting hooked online)

Kate is considered a down-to-earth coach, advisor and mentor who is always seeking a better version of life. With a huge appetite for change, love, travel, food, authenticity, wine, coffee and a raucous laugh – she is always up for an adventure somewhere new. She is at home dressed to the nines at the opera or ballet playing city gal …as she is in walking shoes traversing the boggy moors soul-searching. She is a pretty good salsa dancer and can whip up a meal. She somehow pulled off being an executive chef in a villa (one summer in Provence as a self-proclaimed non-chef). She owned a Harley-Davidson once upon another life, is always searching for heart-shaped rocks on remote beaches, and still misses her beloved cat, Stripey, who has a new forever home.

She helps you question your life, your choices and how you spend your time, but is equally someone you can sip a flute of champagne with somewhere idyllic while flirting with life. Mostly she thinks out of the box and just isn’t afraid to take up space in the world.

She will not let you shrink back from challenges, but she may help you question if it is even the right challenge to be tackling? A bit of real authentic common sense.

Compassion with a bit of oomph!

Do you have someone in your life that can hold you to a bolder and brighter version of yourself?

She is passionate about helping you disconnect for a while so that you can to your heart and figure out what truly matters. To think bigger but also better. For YOU. Next, she helps you simply stay in that GAP. Without filling it too soon. Then, when the time is right she will help you create beautiful goals to ‘STEP UP’ in your world. Finally, she shares practical tools to believe in yourself and ‘STEP OUT’. To play a bolder game, follow your passion and your bliss.

‘Shifts’ mostly happen when we eventually step away from and switch off all the input – but don’t be surprised if insights land fast when you are in her presence. Kate’s clients say it’s a bit like having a bolt of lightning to connect into. Full of energy, ideas, heart, possibilities and a way forward no matter what – she is also experienced at helping you LET GO of all the “stuff” that no longer truly serves you.

She isn’t one for mucking about, hence her name the QUICK SHIFT DEVA. She has oodles of patience and hug fulls of kindness to walk with you through the doldrums and the rough times.

Kate knows the power of deep emotional release, forgiveness and letting go. Sacred Ritual. Not too much fluffy airy-fairy nonsense – but rest assured she has all these tools up her sleeve when needed. She has taken her message of LIVE LIGHT LIVE LARGE to the next level by stepping into what she has called THE MINIMALIST MANIFESTO, living location free since Jan 2016. That means 3 boxes in storage and traveling with the rest of her belongings.


Kate works with individuals, entrepreneurs, and C-suite execs globally. Clients include the YPO/ YPO Gold, Nike, Massmart, Sage VIP Payroll, Investec, Air Mauritius, Dove, HP, Tsogo Sun, EY, Standard Bank and Dermalogica. And a gazillion more over the years. She is a UK trained Master Life Coach (Member of Association for Coaching UK). She has trained in and incorporates many different techniques  – using writing as a healing process, NLP for lasting change, EFT for emotional release, Family Constellations and calls on her qualifications of Industrial Psychology, Industrial Relations, Stress Management, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Holistic Wellness. She has many varied tools up her professional sleeve – including a well-aimed boot or a shoulder to cry on in the quiet moments.
