I first met Kathy in 2017. She often came to our café for lunch. There was always a connection and it was then that I learnt about the French retreat. This was something that I've always wanted to experience.
During the summer of 2018, I sadly lost my mother which was very emotional and very sudden. It was at this point I was drawn to calling Kathy, booking and on a flight to France.
The whole weekend was very cathartic. I was able to relax, face some of my emotions and was able to feel at peace.
The hospitality, food, service and the retreat were all amazing. Both Kathy and Robert treated me like a family member. We laughed, I cried and totally relaxed. So much so, that I have booked the house to celebrate my 50th birthday with four very close girlfriends.
An ideal place to share and make memories. I shall always spend the weekend in September to remember my dear loving mother as I know she'll be looking down on us.
Kathy and Robert are true gems. This hideaway should be added to everyone's "bucket list". Thank you both for giving back some love.
Justine." September 2018
I saw Kathy for Life Coaching regularly over a period of 3 months last year and found my work situation as a Shiatsu Therapist grew as a result. She is a very warm, humorous and alive person who delights in helping others find and live their potential. If you are looking for support in making a transition in your life, Kathy is a good person wot work with." Karen Livesey, posted on LinkedIn 2010.
I have worked with Kathy since, I think from 2009. I had a list of things that I wanted to do and achieve. I am glad to say, most has been ticked off. Each year starts with a focussed session on what's to be done that year and Kathy always helps me focus on the task ahead." Sumita, business entrepreneur.
What did you do to me?! I've reduced my 5 hours a day TV watching habit by 50% to an "in control" 2-and-a-half hours a day, am more selective and enjoy it more." Lesley Administrator.
I first met Kathy at her Zumba classes and was immediately struck by her smile. It made me think I want what she's got!! I decided then to embark on some one-to-one sessions as I felt I needed some extra support in order to tackle some ongoing issues. My work is stressful and there are times when I find myself "running on empty"; through Reiki, it's been amazingly therapeutic; helping me to think more clearly. Sometimes we've spent sessions on planning and implementing strategies for helping me order y life, as there are occasions when I can be overwhelmed. I can always tell when I've just had a session as my approach is calmer and more productive. Perhaps the most surprising thing is that coming from a scientific background I was initially fairly sceptical. However, I can highly recommend Kathy to anyone who wants a tailor-made programmes to support them at different times. Thank-you Kathy. Yours Olivia."
After I saw you the other week, I felt energized motivated, invigorated and so inspired, thank you so very much. I am glad I have found you and you are now officially my 'miracle coach'!!! ...very positive all round and inviting abundance into my life. On the same day I saw you, I got myself a new job... and because I was so present and enthusiastic they offered me work there and then... I have also met my 'partner', so it seems..." "B" Performing Artist. (Life Coaching, NLP, Reiki)
Kathy has inspired me to change my view of myself by 180 degrees. Following two motivational sessions with her and a lovely Reiki session, I have improved my eating habits, my sleeping habits, I've given up smoking (for good!) and I'm exercising regularly. I feel so positive and in control of myself and that is an amazing turn-around. Kathy's approach is totally encouraging and supportive and completely non-judgemental. Jump in with Kathy where you are and she'll inspire you, too. I've just started her brand new Zumba classes which are great fun. It took me two hours to cool down but it was a happy glow that Ii felt." Patricia, Teacher, 2010. Patricia succeeded in improving her health, body composition, state of mind and much more with NLP, Life Coaching, EFT, Fitness training, Dietary recommendations, lifestyle changes, Zumba and Reiki energy treatments. Power to you, Patricia!
Kathy is an inspirational Personal Trainer. She gets the balance right between carrot and stick - getting you to work out longer and further than you'd perhaps imagine you could, to maximise the benefits." David Whistance, Photographer/Finance Director.
I feel in great shape. I have lost a stone and a half in two months. I feel better than ever and uch more motivated in my work. Well worth the money and effort." David, IT Consultant.
I first met Kathy when she was doing Personal Training prior to her Reiki and Life Coaching business. She was a great motivator... Unfortunately, due to job loss and other events, I plunged into depression. Kathy was the only think that kept me going. I remember days of total silence, yet Kathy put up with a complete zombie. Kathy herself has come through a lot of things in life and is one of the most positive, joyful people I know. She will enhance your life!" Marjorie Ellis Thompson, 2001.

The remarkable thing about Kathy's Personal Training sessions was how adaptable she was. When I was a pregnant mother, with a toddler, she would alter the class depending on whether we needed to be quiet for the sleeping child, or outside. She was careful to monitor my changing needs as my pregnancy progressed, keeping me wonderfully, but safely, fit throughout. She even had me using my children as weights to lift! We both really miss her now we are no longer in London." Rosalind Whistance, Editor.
We have now completed the Reiki I attunement. I had a amazing experience the past two days, a lot of different physical feelings and emotional feelings, some of which I had never experienced before. I was very tense and worried before I came to the first session but I am now so glad that I went through this process; I have a feeling of relief, huge relief, inside of me but also peace, joy, happiness and contentment. I hope to hold these feelings with e always. Thank you so much Kathy for making this experience as gentle and smooth as possible, it has made all the difference I guess, and thank you for sharing this gift." Pauline, 2018. (Pauline subsequently attended Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki, level II Practitioner Course with me later in the year.)
I started working with Kathy almost 3 years ago. My focus was about weight, health, diet, fitness and wellbeing. Through the support Kathy gave me, I now drink water through the day without even having to think about it; I stopped drinking fizzy drinks every day and broke my sugar addiction. I've lost weight, inches from my waist and I feel better and healthier. I also go to the gym twice a week as with Kathy's support I've found a way to make this work for me and fit in with my busy life. Three years on from my first appointment, 90% of what I wanted to achieve has not only been achieved it's now part of my everyday life!
So many times before I've started out with good intentions but they've failed by the wayside... not this time! Through Kathy's support I've made fundamental, positive and lasting changes to my life. I've just had a booster session to work on the other 10% and I feel confident that I can make those changes. Not only is Kathy great at what she does but she's a lovely, kind, warm, supportive and fun person to work with. Thank you Kathy for everything!" Lisa G, HR Director.
After spending time with Kathy and teaching me Reiki Level 1 Course, I have kept practising self-healing every day and I'm learning more and more about the power of Reiki. For 15 years I've had a very self-destructive daily habit that as much as I tried over and over again, I kept on failing to stop the repetitive behaviour. During my 21 day self-healing, I've found the strength to just stop! I can't tell you how much of a miracle it feels to me. It has and will continue to make a positive difference in all areas of my life. And I'm so, so thankful to you Kathy - you are a warm, caring, shining light." Chrissie, 2017.
Kathy is a wonderful reiki practitioner and it was a real joy to do the reiki course with her. She is patient, passionate and has a beautiful sense of calm when teaching. Since completing the course, I have felt a profound shift within the way I approach life. I feel my old unhelpful habits are loosening and that there is a new path opening up in front of me. I would strongly recommend studying with Kathy." Kathryn, Drama Teacher, Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki, Level II Practitioner Course 2018.
