I help creative souls and practical dreamers who have a strong ‘sense of more’ to follow their Right Path without the doubts, fear and overwhelm.
I was eleven when I first felt broken.
And I was twenty-five before I realised just how much control I have over my own life.
Now I’m here to help you mange the second-guessing, the fear of wasting time and the overwhelm of different advice for following that inner fire which whispers to you about being more.
You Are Enough.
When I talk about inner strength, about humans being more capable than they realise, the crux of it is this: none of us are broken, and we have everything we need to thrive. We just haven’t been taught how to access it. This is where I come in.
The sessions were very uplifting, and although structured, sparked deeper perspective and paths to explore. Talking with Katy helped me see that I was being hard on myself and just took the pressure away. Ironically, I am meditating more just through being more gentle on my expectations of myself. ~ Kelly, Nourishing Baker
I’m Katy-Rose, and I’ve been helping wild creatives and deep thinkers redefine their lives since 2011. I am parent of two adorable kitty siblings, who I would describe as loving and ‘derp.‘ I write fantasy and science fiction stories, love herbal teas, and have a mild obsession with quantum mechanics. As you do.
In terms of the official qualifications, I hold a BSc in Psychology, an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience, a Postgraduate Certificate in low intensity CBT, and a diploma in Life Coaching.
I have traipsed through the life-hacks, counselling, cognitive therapy and Buddhist meditation, hit my own ‘rock bottom’ a couple of times and unravelled the beliefs I grew up with.
You already have everything you need.
Aside from managing my own mental wellbeing and anxieties, I have worked with children, teenagers and adults in managing emotional distress, healthy lifestyle routines, and difficult behaviours in social care settings, psychiatric hospitals, and youth offending centres.
Having said this, I have also taught meditation, yoga and Shiva Nata, and am a Reiki practitioner, so there’s a little openness in my methods too. I float between INFJ and ISTJ, if personality types are your thing. I’m also a Virgo, Metal Horse, with Scorpio moon & rising signs if you’re into those labels.
We are all more resilient than we realise: it just takes knowing how to access it.
I believe physical fitness is part of mental wellbeing: so outside of work I strength-train, dance and do ShivaNata. I’m even learning to grow fruit and vegetables. Slowly. (So far, bell peppers and cucumbers are successful.)
I’ve been featured in Badassery Magazine, Thrive Global and The Mindful Word.
I’m here to help you understand the power you already have over your life, in the context of the ‘real world.’ (Positive thinking can be helpful, but it only goes so far.)
It is possible for you to feel strong…
…whether that is strength in your conviction, in your decisions or just in managing your emotions.
Melding Psychology, Neuroscience and Coaching practises together, I mentor creative souls concerned about wasting time and backtracking to feel capable in their strength, break free from the self-help books and focus their energy and time on doing so they can feel purpose-fuelled without the overwhelm and frustration.
What really struck me about working with Katy-Rose was how quickly she understood and validated the difficulties I experienced with the vague, “inner-only” approaches to self-improvement. She knows the inner and outer worlds need to be integrated for people to accelerate their potential. I’m heartened she is in the world doing this work!” ~ Kyrina, Creative Activist
My mission is to help you recognise, understand and access your inner strength so that you can feel confident, take action in the real world and most importantly, feel like you are enough, just as you are.
You have all the strength you will ever need; you just need to learn to access it.

I will be the first to admit that before my sessions, I was a bit sceptical of life coaching. Katy was very down to earth and asked great questions to help me unravel my thoughts and why I may not be reaching my potential in several areas; especially in relation to my career. ~ Katey, Youth Worker
