Testimonials

Steph

Testimonial

Being in a safe container with Katie and all of her experience and knowledge in starting up a small business has been so useful to me - especially as I was in an intensive stage of parenting with my toddler just as I was starting my business. She was able to coach me through that, giving me the tools that I needed, not just in business, but in parenting too. That’s what’s so wonderful about what Katie offers – she brings the parenting and business support together and does this so beautifully. I’m so grateful for the support I’ve received from Katie, she has made me feel so safe.

Courtney

Testimonial

Receiving online support from Katie has been a Godsend during this challenging time at home full time with a toddler and a baby. I've felt so supported knowing I can chat through anything with Katie that comes up for me in my parenting, and feel really heard and understood. Thanks Katie for listening, sharing your wisdom and guiding me through my journey towards becoming a more mindful parent.

Business Mentoring

I know the power of surrounding yourself in a community of other Mums in business who 'get it' and am passionate about facilitating these connections and supporting Mums in the early stages of business.

 

I offer support through 1:1 sessions and my eight week online circle series, Nurtured, which is a wonderful opportunity to connect with other Mums thinking about starting a business, just starting out or a bit further down the track of running their own business.

 

Having facilitated several group mentoring programs over the last 18 months, I can honestly say what I love most is the genuine support and cheer-leading the women provide to each other in the group. It really is one of the magical things about women joining together in circle.

 

It is my absolute passion to support Mums to create a business that is aligned with their vision and values and fits around Motherhood in a flexible way that feels good.

Immersive Support Package

Are you craving a deeper level of support with your mothering?

Introducing my Immersive Support Package, Held, for Mothers at any stage of their mothering journey. 

For three months you will have me in your pocket to receive support with anything you like - feelings of guilt or anger, getting clear on your values so that you can be the parent you want to be, the feeling of having lost yourself in motherhood / navigating the identity changes matrescence brings, prioritising self-care, building your village of support, or how to parent more consciously: diving deep into your childhood imprints, holding space for your child's big feelings, connecting deeply with your desires and building a more connected and respectful relationship with your child.

You can use the space in whatever way feels good for you. You may have specific questions that come up in your parenting, you may desire some tools and strategies to support you in your parenting or to live a more rich and meaningful life in general, you may want to unpack your social conditioning, or explore the impact the parenting you received as a child has on the way you parent your own children, or you may simply wish to be heard and use me more as a listening partner. And this may change week to week and that is totally fine too!

I will hold space for you to be your true, authentic self. You can be as vulnerable as you like - this is your safe space to open up and be real about your mothering experience. I can help you cultivate gratitude, mindfulness and self-compassion practices if this is something that interests you too.

You will be able to leave me up to 20 minutes of audio messages each week and I will respond within 24 hours Monday to Thursday. I use the free app Voxer which is a walkie-talkie style app.

You will also receive two one-hour online or face-to-face sessions a month.

I can create a more structured bespoke package for you where you identify the particular areas you'd like support with and we set themes for our sessions, or it can be more go-with-the-flow support - working with whatever comes up for you at the time - whatever suits you best.

Your investment is $499 per month on a monthly payment plan or $1397 upfront for the three months.​
