“My decision to work with Kate is one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. I affectionately refer to Kate as my Secret Weapon. She 100% saves my life time and again. I first started working with Kate just after I'd separated from my husband. At the time, I was being threatened and harassed by both him and his family. They were blackmailing me financially, and threatening to take my kids away from me. I felt very intimidated, alone, and totally disabled by the stress, fear, and anxiety these threats were causing me. Without Kate's close guidance and amazing support I'm pretty sure I would have lost the plot (and maybe even my kids).
Kate helped me gain the knowledge, strength, and support I needed to feel confident standing up for myself and my children in terms of both parenting and financial matters. Kate also taught me how to deal with my former husband's legal and financial demands in a calm, classy, and clever way. This alone has been a major game changer for me. Kate is kind, helpful, and never judgmental. She helps me slow down, think things through properly, and make really smart decisions. She's still my number 1 supporter, and I know she's always got my back.”

“I don't know what I would have done without Kate's help and support. Kate is amazing. She helped me gain a lot of clarity in my situation. She's so supportive, knowledgeable, and very generous with her time. Having walked this path herself, Kate truly understands exactly what's involved not only from a practical perspective, but also from a mental and emotional perspective.”

“Kate is a total pro when it comes to helping women navigate their way through separation and divorce. Kate’s wisdom, experience, guidance, and support are absolute game changers for the women she works with.
There are so many threads that need to be tied off properly at the end of a marriage, above and beyond the legal aspects. These other threads are just as critical as the legal ones and that's where Kate's zone of genius lies.”

“When I first met Kate, I was really struggling with my lack of knowledge about the separation and divorce process, and the absence of a strategy that would help me move forward with it.
Kate helped me gain the knowledge and strategy I needed quickly and easily. I feel like I now have a strong sense of clarity and direction, and I feel confident that I know how to move forward with my life.
I found Kate to be very personable, qualified, professional, and experienced. She coaches in a very caring, empathetic, and passionate manner. She also provided me with numerous examples of how other women she has worked with have navigated their way through similar circumstances, and I found that very helpful.
My experience of working with Kate was fabulous! It's one of the best things I have ever done for myself.”
“Meeting Kate was one of the best things that happened to me after my marriage imploded.
Kate helped me feel comfortable talking openly about my very upsetting marriage breakdown from the first time I met her. Her non-judgemental approach, and genuinely caring attitude gave me the strength and support I needed to move through some very difficult feelings, and overcome some very challenging personal circumstances.
Kate's guidance was paramount to my journey through separation. Kate helped me feel empowered, informed, and acknowledged. She also helped me find a light of hope in my world of darkness at the time.
Thank you Kate!”

“Kate's magic and inspiration is a gift. I’m in awe of how Kate helped my friend feel strong, prepared, and empowered enough to leave an abusive relationship. I truly believe she helped save my friend’s life. There are not many people in the world who have that unique ability and I know that Kate will continue to change many women's lives for the better using it.
I have no doubt that Kate's guidance and influence played an important role in helping my gorgeous friend clearly identify the path that otherwise lay ahead for her, and feel confident enough to redirect her life and her children's lives into a safer, healthier, and more positive direction. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Kate.”

“Kate helped me deepen my connection with myself and unravel past hurts so that I can now move powerfully into my future.
Kate often stayed with me beyond our allotted time together and made sure that the things she was helping me with were finished properly. I'm super impressed!
I felt so looked after and cared for by Kate and I'm very grateful for her help. Thanks Kate!”
“Before I met Kate, I'd spent a whole year struggling to deal with the devastating fall-out of the discovery of my husband's secret life. Although I was physically separated from my husband when I first met Kate, I was still having trouble dealing with his controlling, possessive, and paranoid behaviour towards me. I had no idea how I'd ever break free from his toxic control on my own.
Right from our very first session together, Kate led me on a journey of self-discovery with kindness and empathy. Over time, I felt myself becoming stronger and more confident in my ability to free myself from my husband's control, and rebuild my life from the ashes.
Kate helped me gain a lot of clarity and confidence around the new direction I wanted my life to take and what I needed to do to make it happen. With Kate's guidance and support, I was able to achieve a major 12 month goal in less than 3 months, and I'm now well on my way to building a happy and stable life for myself and my kids as a single mum.
Kate delivers her sessions in a manner that feels like you're having a chat with a friend. She is very open and relatable, and never critical or judgemental. I always felt like my challenges were her top priority.
Without Kate's help, I know I'd still be stuck in the same destructive cycle of control, fear, and unhappiness. Instead, I'm loving my new sense of freedom, and I feel happier and more confident in myself than I have in many years.
Because of Kate, I'm excited about the future my children and I have ahead of us. I'm feeling strong, empowered, determined, positive, happy, and lucky!”

“When I first met Kate, I was already separated from my ex, but we hadn't sorted out our financial settlement yet. I felt way out of my depth in terms of my ability to negotiate a fair financial settlement with my ex on my own. I was tired of living in fear, and I felt like I needed someone to hold my hand and guide me through my financial negotiations with my ex.
Kate helped me to break down my struggles down into smaller, actionable items, and we moved through each of these items together.
Kate also helped me set stronger personal boundaries with my ex - this alone has been life changing for me. As a result of working with Kate, I'm definitely feeling more assertive in all of my relationships.
I feel confident that I'm now on the right path, and I'm feeling a lot less stressed and anxious than I was when I first met Kate. I would absolutely recommend Kate! She really does go above and beyond for her clients, and I'm so grateful for all of her help.”

"Prior to working with Kate, I'd been struggling in a very unhappy marriage for over 20 years. I knew I needed to end my marriage, but I had no idea how to do it on my own. I felt a lot of fear about leaving my home and devastating my family. I also felt completely overwhelmed by the complexities of the separation and divorce process. Kate helped me prepare to leave, and held my hand every step of the way. She helped me gain the confidence, support, and guidance I needed to finally make the break and follow through with something I'd wanted to do for such a long time. I'm now settled into my new home, getting back up on my feet again, and I'm loving my new lease on life!
Kate helped me discover who I really am at my core, and what I really want from life. Having been a wife and mother for almost 30 years prior, I'd completely lost track of who I was and what my personal values were. I felt lost trying to be the person I felt I 'should' be rather than who I really am. It feels so good to finally be me again! This alone has made me a better mum, and I'm excited that my children now have the opportunity to finally see me happy and living life to the fullest.
I really value Kate's open and non-judgmental approach. While working with Kate, I always felt like I had someone on my team who genuinely wanted the best possible outcome for both myself and my family. I loved Kate's flexible approach and the way she really listened to me. Kate's calm and level-headed advice and experience was so comforting, and it really strengthened me as a person.
I honestly couldn't have done any of this without Kate. I respect Kate and the work she does so much, and I'll always be a huge advocate. She's a legend!"

“I contacted Kate shortly after my husband and I decided to separate. I felt like a deer in the headlights at the time and I had no idea where to start with it all. What I did know was that I really didn’t want to be on the back foot through any of it. Before I started working with Kate, I wasn’t sure how our finances would be divided or how our parenting arrangements would be made. Even more frighteningly, I had no idea what my rights were. I decided to work with Kate because I wanted to talk to someone who really understood where I was at and could guide me through all of these very important decisions step by step.
Kate was the most reassuring, supportive, and informative guide and mentor I could have hoped for. She had all the answers I was looking for but more importantly, I felt like she really cared about me as an individual and that was exactly what I wanted and needed at the time.
Engaging Kate was honestly the best money I’ve ever spent! As a result of the work I did with Kate, my ex-husband and I had all of our parenting and property negotiations finalised amicably within a matter of months and with minimal involvement from the lawyers. I’m very proud to say that we also have a great co-parenting relationship with each other now too and our children are thriving as a result.
I not only recommend Kate's services but I honestly believe her guidance and support is absolutely critical for any woman who is currently standing on the cusp of separation and divorce.”
