Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, Katie has been focused on inviting her clients to take some time out of their days to focus on themselves during their sessions together.
‘Often when we relax and turn off the outside noise, we really get to connect to our deepest needs and desires. We also allow for optimal healing to take place within ourselves when we are feeling relaxed and supported’, says Katie.
Katie has studied clinical aromatherapy and creates her own bespoke blends of essential oils to assist and support her clients throughout their wellness journey’s.

Why Katie began her journey as a Holistic Wellness Coach
After years of working a stressful job as a construction project manager, Katie says it started to take a toll on her body. She was suffering from auto-immune issues which resulted in constant chronic pain and fatigue. After taking a mainstream path to solve her health problems, Katie instead visited a naturopath.
“I decided to see a naturopath, who straight away put me on the right track with my diet and some other natural supplements. After just a few weeks I felt remarkably different which sparked my curiosity into the use of natural methods for healing and well-being.”
In 2017, shortly after delving into her passion for holistic wellness Katie was diagnosed with breast cancer. To Katie, holistic wellness is more than a physical feeling. It’s spiritual, mental and emotional too. Despite the awful news Katie had received, she used her skills along with mainstream medicine and chemotherapy to help with her recovery.
“I can honestly say with my hand on my heart that these alternative therapies helped me to feel and heal well during my treatment. In a situation where everything felt so hopeless at times, it really gave me a sense of empowerment to take a holistic approach to my recovery, I may not have been able to change what was happening on the outside but I could definitely take the reins with how I supported my mind and body during the process.”
Katie describes her experience with auto-immune illnesses and cancer as a roller coaster she couldn’t get off. Thankfully, Katie is now celebrating 3 years in remission and hopes to inspire and give back to people who are in the position she once was in.

The challenges of running a small business
The reality is that small businesses rely heavily on word of mouth to get off the ground. Especially in holistic health, it’s extremely important to hear reviews from reliable people. Katie wholeheartedly believes that hearing success stories in her field is crucial to have a fruitful business.
Word of mouth is so important for me and my business. Especially online, I feel like it can sometimes be impossible to get noticed.
When my clients share their stories of how healing or coaching has helped them to have more clarity, emotional balance and improved overall wellness I really hope it inspires other people to consider visiting me too.
Katie’s curiosity and passion for holistic wellness quickly turned into a side hustle, and over the last year she has been training to become a health coach and mentor. She has also been learning more about the benefits of essential oils and now is a qualified reiki practitioner.
