What people say about me and the work we’ve done together
I love the way you tell people it's OK to be human.
"This is exactly me and I swear the reason I don’t get shit done! A lot of people will benefit from this - It makes me feel happy inside. Reading the content actually helps me out of my state of “helplessness” and “I can’t do anything” mode. It’s so clever.
It’s not at all judgemental and I love the way you tell people it's OK to be human. Personally, I feel lazy if I’m not productive, when actually it’s just overwhelm and not laziness. I’m going to print out the ebook and keep it on my desk.”
– Michelle B, EVENTS FREELANCER
It was the “Life Kick Up the Bum” that I needed.
“Katy helped unravel me... I felt tied up in mental knots and she teased them out. Talking to Katy definitely woke me up and made me tackle the things in my life that I wasn’t happy with. I was really stuck there for a while. Things got better when I began to see the rejections as a nudge onto the better path. It was a “Life Kick Up the Bum” that I needed. I have plenty of ideas and ambitions to get motivated on but having a focus was an obstacle. I ran 3 times this week, had a lovely hike yesterday and am feeling physically really good. She had more impact than she knows."
– Máire, PRIMARY TEACHER & WRITER
To be honest this was the insight that I needed to see.
“To be honest this was the insight that I needed to see for starters - it's nice to see that I need to do the little steps… I'm just being impatient with myself. I've gained quite a lot and I’m more comfortable taking the baby steps. Thank you so much I am I'm going to work on my baby steps now... Thanks a million.”
– Tonya, NUTRITIONAL THERAPIST & CHEF
Now I am actually making progress, and am feeling more clear and calm.
"I am a classic 'Many Things On the Go' type of person-I read several books at once, always have about 30 tabs on my computer open, and as a course builder, have several courses about 80% done. Recently I became very aware of this pattern, but wasn't sure how to change things. To put it shortly, this process was a God Send.
Not only did it reveal to me the psychology behind why this pattern exists within me, (and confirmed that there's actually nothing 'wrong with me'), it also walked me through some very effective and practical steps to help me move forward and actually complete things before starting something new! I now have a clear idea of where my priorities lie, and a system of how to move forward with my top priorities.
Thank you Katy-Rose, for helping those of us who have been stuck in this perpetual cycle of non-completion! Now I am actually making progress, and am feeling more clear and calm in my approach to things.
– Michele, EXPRESSIVE ARTS TEACHER
Now I have something ‘to do’ about it, rather than just hoping my anxieties go away.
"Working with Katy helped me sharpen my focus, and gave me some direction. One session connected what I was planning to what I was anxious about. That tells me that I’ve already ‘got my own back’ in a way, but I hadn’t it seen it that way. Making this connection together put my mind at ease. Now I have more clarity, and a pathway to focus on: something ‘to do’ about it, rather than just hoping my anxieties go away in time."
– Ciarán, PROJECT MANAGER
I'm now better at asking for help.
“Katy guided me through the process to a really positive place. I can be a bit hesitant or defensive, but her manner put me at ease straight away. It was very reassuring, especially the way she managed to break things down into manageable steps with a really positive focus. I always find it a bit daunting to talk about goals – I have a tendency to go after everything at once – but talking with Katy was really constructive. I'm now better at asking for help and have been using the tools Katy taught me to think about how to make life a bit more nourishing. I'm still grateful for that."
– Angharad, APOTHECARY
Katy knows the inner and outer worlds need to be integrated.
“What really struck me about working with Katy-Rose the most was how quickly she understood and validated the difficulties I experienced with the vague, “inner-only” approaches to self-improvement. I’m heartened she is in the world doing this work!”
– Kyrina, CREATIVE ACTIVIST
I realised that small daily tasks work best for me.
"The takeaway for me was twofold: learning how to feel like I’m managing my time well without having to log it, and that I don’t actively schedule downtime minus nighttime reading."
– Sara, BADASS WRITER AND EDITOR
I am meditating more following our session.
"The session was 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 following our session."
– Kelly, NOURISHING BAKER
Katy helped me unravel my thoughts.
"I will be the first to admit that before my session, 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
I now see the real problem and have a clear solution.
"Katy-Rose is fabulous. She gently pulls back the layers to show you the real problem and then walks you through the issues to find a solution. She’s just brilliant. I strongly recommend her to anyone having trouble focusing and finding their way forward. You must work with her!"
– Mhairi, WRITER
I’ve found clarity and feel reassured about the next leg of my journey.
"My call helped me to find clarity in my visions and dreams: to map through what I was excelling at and how I could move forwards in other areas. It gave me the reassurance that I was moving towards my potential and allowed me to see how far I had come, as well as new steps to take for the next leg of my journey."
