Who is your life coaching for?
We offer in-person life coaching in Melbourne but we also work with clients from all around the world. The people who are most drawn to our work are those who know how to fit into mainstream culture, but sometimes feel that there’s something missing in the traditional version of success.

The life 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 90-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.
5 x workbooks to help you discover and live your purpose
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.
6 x workbooks – Creative Business Mentoring (for those who are transitioning into their own business)
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.
Telephone support between sessions
We’ll be here to touch base between sessions if something urgent crops us.
Option to continue with single-sessions
We offer ongoing appointments for clients who have completed a coaching program. These can be scheduled at your convenience.

MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT LIFE COACHING?
I’m not sure if I want to get straight into a program. Can I do a single session?
We’re very happy to offer single sessions if you’re not sure about committing to a program. Please get in touch and we’ll send you a link to our online booking calendar.
I’m not sure if I should do a half-day session or the coaching program. What would you recommend?
The content of the discovery session and the coaching program is much the same but the half-day session is a deep-dive intensive. It’s different in the sense that you’ll get to the heart of things in a single day. After that, you’re welcome to book a program or a single session if you need more support. The program is a better option for you if you prefer time between your sessions to reflect and if you need accountability to help you stay on track.
I’m not that interested in mindfulness. Does that mean you’re wrong for me?
Not at all. Not everyone we see is interested in mindfulness. Being mindful is really just another way of saying being present, curious, self-aware and non-judgmental. If those qualities appeal, you’ll enjoy working with us.

What our clients say
‘Having received Kate’s monthly newsletters for a couple of years now, I felt the ideas and perspective Kate expressed resonated with me and felt she was someone I could trust. I have held mixed feelings around life coaching in general, as I am a gentle person who does not identify with the ‘ra-ra’ hype associated with some forms of coaching, but I knew I was keen to explore some ideas with depth and felt Kate’s approach and insight would be the right fit for me.
Kate had such a delightful way of coaxing hidden truths from me, by gentle questioning and intuitive perspective. I came away feeling lighter and more open to the possibilities ahead of me. For the first time in a long time, I was excited to identify with unrealised strengths, as opposed to feeling overwhelmed by them. Overall, Kate helped me achieve a greater sense of inner harmony, with plans in place for future growth, as well as further life coaching sessions to build on what we had uncovered during early sessions.
I would highly recommend Kate to anyone interested in gaining perspective at a deeper level, but also needing the practical tips to follow through on goals and ideas.’ Louise, Melbourne
‘It has been a privilege and joy to have had Kate James as my life coach. It has helped me to articulate a vision for my life that is truly meaningful to me and has given me the tools and guidance to move towards it. Kate is calm, kind and compassionate and her advice has helped me turn a difficult corner in life that I could not see my own way around. Thank you Kate.’ Caroline Cull
‘My work with Kate has brought home the importance of knowing what I value in life, and of working out how I can live accordingly, at work and at home. Kate’s keen perception meant that I felt understood. And her experience with many clients helped me to realise that many people feel like me, and that I am part of a valuable sector of society. This realisation has given me more confidence in myself, and a sense of optimism about the future that I was lacking before. Thanks for your professionalism and humanity, Kate.’ TJ, Melbourne
‘Kate neither sat passively as I spoke nor droned on from a list of well-rehearsed questions. Instead she was a logical sounding board of guidance who respected that I could know what I wanted, and what direction to take, but could not find the way to a conclusion by initial self-reflection. I ultimately withdrew from my thesis and scholarship (that I had pursued for years), and started up a business teaching the English language to international students. Now I am in love with my life ‘. Sandra, Melbourne
‘I have been working with Kate for approximately six months and I cannot put into words what an inspiration and impact Kate has had on my life, decisions and outlook in general. I have been going through some very major changes in my personal life and my career, and the guidance I have received from Kate has given me the courage and insight to make the best decisions I could make. Kate is very encouraging and she has reinforced my confidence in the choices I’ve made and enabled me to trust my intuition. Kate has a very positive, unique and gentle approach and her outlook is very refreshing. The coaching was motivating, enabling me to focus on my future goals and put in place actions to achieve these goals and continually monitor my progress. I recommend Kate as a life coach to anyone who is ready to take the challenge, follow their heart, live their dream and succeed.’ RF, Melbourne
