Hi and Welcome ! So, you want to know more about the Coach called Kate? All righty, read - on ...... if you're game ..... ?!!
My Story of "what was"? I trained as a Health and Phys. Ed. teacher and taught for thirteen years. Four of those 'latter' years I also worked as a Professional Swim Coach. As an athlete, I represented my State of Australia, in basketball at the Australian Titles for eight years, including playing in Junior titles as well as Senior Women's titles. My experience as a basketball player, at 15 years old, included travelling overseas to the USA, with a State Schoolgirls Basketball team. In the days of 1977, the women of USA were only just beginning to play basketball. So our team won every game, bar one. ( I just have to add that, as now is a different story ... it is not so easy to claim a win over the USA !!)
So, why am I now choosing to coach on 'personal growth/transformation' especially through releasing emotions and enhancing your natural ability to let go, for uncovering a deeper nature/innate wisdom? From my sporting background I had a huge interest in the 'mind side' of things. Yet, it was really personal trauma in the area of intimate relationship, that presented itself in my life, as a young adult, that caused me to have to delve quite deeply into my own personal growth and transformation, to truly be free of it. I was also seeking to 'break through to success'. Little did I realise, it was really about an 'inner success', and uncovering a deeper truth, an innate wisdom, to who and what I really am!
This journey of personal transformation took me overseas to the USA where I still continue to keep updated with two of my mentors and their trainer/instructor teams. (It's a lot of fun, and ever so 'freeing' to do this, as someone who provides coaching for others as well. I love to provide those who I support with the new and most up to date information.)
During those years of personal transformation, I immersed myself in a plethora of self-esteem seminars, emotional wellbeing retreats overseas, events/workshops/conferences (later in my own country) as well as online coaching. My knowledge and skills expanded. Yet, and most importantly, I noticed 'who and what I am' gradually and gently, unravelled, so I could be living, ultimately, "from" and "as" that freedom, which I was seeking. Now, the body/mind is free!
I have a heartfelt desire to share this sense of greater freedom from within, with others. Not just those who have similar 'tough stuff' life experiences, but also, for coaching as a means of total prevention and elimination of intimate partner 'suffering' - even what may be brushed off as the 'small stuff'. It definitely would have been a blessing to have had these resources for the "young adult called Kate". Especially one in particular, that is the experiential discovery of releasing emotions and thereby, a wonderful insight into emotional intelligence/mastery from the inside, out. It is called The Sedona Method.
To not share this greater sense of freedom from within, with others, is just not possible!
So, what is here now ? As I mentioned the emotional releasing that I really resonated with came from The Sedona Method. I found it to be significantly effective for letting go of any unwanted emotion/s (and more).
Amazingly enough, I found it could even be fun at times, as that deeper energy in motion (e-motion + the 'surface' stuff), was set free and let go, for good. The laughter 'bubbled up' from which I became aware of the serene peace, as the laughter subsided. This awareness/ a stillness of 'serene - peace' truly is a key turning point, in my experience, for living life fully, in any moment, and beyond. In my experience, this is the source of it all. You can read all about it here.
As The Founder of The Sedona Method, Lester Levenson, discovered (and I found to be true too) "If you could see through what you are not, you would just be what you already are."
