About our clients

total balance clients

I’ve finally taken the time to think about what links the people I work with.

Most of them are creative in some way. This doesn’t mean they are artists or musicians necessarily but they are people who think outside the square (or want to learn how to).

They might fit into mainstream culture but feel that there’s something missing. They like genuine conversations and don’t enjoy small talk. Some (but not all) are interested in meditation; a few would call themselves spiritual; most like to travel and learn about different cultures and all are interested in becoming more self aware.

Here are some of the other traits they share. They are people who:

  • want to live more than just an ‘ok’ life
  • feel a connection with the word ‘creativity’ even if they don’t actively pursue a traditional creative interest
  • often feel disillusioned by the corporate world
  • work in their own creative or wellbeing business (or would love to be able to)
  • would like the opportunity to give back to society at some point
  • have an interest in social justice and care about the environment
  • sometimes feel more sensitive or more questioning than others. They may think more deeply, feel more empathy or see beauty in places that others don’t
  • don’t value the accumulation of material possessions as the most important thing in life
  • sometimes feel ‘different’ and want to understand themselves better
  • often prefer having a small number of meaningful friendships
  • value authenticity and genuineness
  • want to live a life that has purpose and meaning

I spend my days having inspiring conversations with these wonderful people. Is it any wonder that I love my work?

  1. Wow Kate, I think you've just described me! No wonder I loved working with you!!

    Thanks for the reminder of what's important.

  2. kate, i love what you have to say, and i've just figured out abit why. i went to your website and see that we do/have done the same kind of work. i've owned a consulting business called OPTIONS Associates for a number of years. and done plenty of personal growth-happiness-career workshops.

    and yes, what's better than helping people stretch and grow? these days i work with 15-20 very poor very disempowered adults and children and i love the connection of that.

    so wouldn't it be something if someday we intersected? 🙂

  3. Me in a nut shell! Have loved the greater awareness I have had since taking that first meditation lesson with you!

    I would definitely be the lady in the green bathers!

  4. Trish & Kate – thanks for your comments. I'm glad the post resonated. It took me some time to work out the criteria and I forgot to add one that I think is fairly true of most people I work with and that is they expect a lot of themselves.
