Create and grow a beautiful business

With over 25 years of business management experience working for film makers, architects and designers, Kate offers business coaching for small business owners.


A business coach can help you to:

  • Develop a vision for your business and create a plan for achieving your goals.
  • Establish a positive mindset around making money.
  • Overcome the sense of overwhelm that often occurs in the early days.
  • Identify your ideal client and learn how to get your message out there authentically.
  • Create systems that will free up your time so you’re not at your desk until midnight.
  • Develop a simple but workable marketing plan and the confidence to sell without being ‘salesy’.
  • Understand your unique strengths (and what you really should be delegating).
  • Network in a way that will make you comfortable.
  • Balance being creative with the boring parts of running a business (like managing cashflow).
  • Create a business that is profitable.
  • Balance business and life.


Who are your business coaching programs for?

Our business coaching and small business mentoring programs are for clients who have started or would like to start their own creative or wellness business. You’ll get the most from this program if you’re:

  • interested in creating a small business that has some ‘soul’ in it.
  • the kind of person who values relationships as much as making a profit.
  • someone who is hoping to make a positive difference in the world.
  • willing to put in the work in order to make your business succeed.


The business coaching 1:1 program

Your coaching program runs over three-months and includes the following.

  • Pre-coaching strengths profiling and preparation questionnaires

    The profiling tools will provide insights into your innate strengths and give me insights into how we will work best together. We’ll both have a better understanding of the potential stumbling blocks you’re likely to encounter along the way. The prep questionnaires will help you gain clarity on the most important objectives for your career, your life and for the coaching program.

  • 1 x 75-minute strategy session

    We’ll review your profiling results and prep questionnaires and start creating a vision for your ideal career, business or life. You’ll leave this session with a greater understanding of yourself and at least a few clear goals and action steps.

  • 4 x 60-minute sessions

    We meet every couple of weeks to review your progress, to establish new objectives and to keep you moving beyond any of the limiting beliefs or behaviours that could hold you back. Your coaching program is valid for three months so you can take the time you need to get the most from the program.

  • 6 x workbooks – Creative Business Mentoring 

    You’ll receive free copies of our comprehensive business mentoring workbooks which include exercises and strategies to help you with your business planning, creating your social media and marketing plan, managing your finances as well as overcoming self-doubt and maintaining balance in your life as you grow your business.

  • 5 x workbooks – Believe in Yourself and Do What You Love

    You’ll receive free copies of our comprehensive workbooks to help you discover your values and purpose, overcome your limiting beliefs, define your vision, build resilience, discover your ideal career and if you’re changing roles, to approach the career search process with confidence.

  • Unlimited email and telephone support between sessions

    I’ll be here to touch base between sessions to keep you on track and to make sure you feel supported.

  • Option to continue with single-sessions

    I offer ongoing appointments for clients who have completed a coaching program. These can be scheduled at your convenience.


$1,250 AUD (save $100) or 3 x monthly instalments of $450. Coaching is tax deductible. Please confirm with your accountant.
