Does anyone ever read the
‘About Page’ on people’s websites?
Haha, I guess so! Awesome! Thanks for taking an interest in getting to know me.
If anything on this site resonates with you…. I think it’s safe to say, this program is absolutely for you and we are going to get along swimmingly!
My name is Kate, I’m a devoted single mumma bear raising my two free thinking bear cubs and mischievous English Staffy in a quaint little townhouse on the Sunny Coast of Queensland, Australia.
I love my pyjamas, Chris Cornell, eating vegan ice cream out of the tub, and I have a long-standing obsession with children’s books.
My heart used to be where your heart is now. It ached to find a way to help my child through something I thought I had no control over and no way out of.
My heart ached because I thought I HAD to keep sending my child back to school day after day even though he would be begging me in heartbreaking tears each morning not to make him go!
I thought I HAD to keep sending him even though I disagreed with the values and beliefs he was being indoctrinated with for 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, (for potentially 13 years of his life) by strangers who clearly didn’t share the same values as I did.
I thought I HAD to send him even though I knew it was traumatising and crushing his soul because he was being bullied not only by students but also by TEACHERS (and yes, I moved him to another school but it was equally as bad).
Believe me, my heart was where your heart is now.
But I made a stand and decided enough was enough, nothing was worth seeing my child like that day after day and nothing was worth allowing an outdated, constrictive institution dictate our every move.
Even though it SERIOUSLY ruffled some feathers within our family… my inner mumma bear took over and I made a decision that forever changed our lives!
Now, I’m here to hold space for and guide your family through what will be one of the most life changing actions you take in your lives.
I’m here to inspire and encourage you to reclaim your power, break out of the matrix and let go of that constrictive and governed ‘have to’ life and instead create your own autonomous and intentional ‘want to’ life!
I am here to show you first-hand how your children (and your family) can not only live a life without school but how you can ALL flourish and thrive in a life without the limitations and constraints of school.
The fact that you are here, tells me that you are already craving all of this but you just don’t know how to claim it and start living it!
With over 20 years of experience in the early childhood and education sectors and as a now veteran unschooling mumma who definitely prefers to live ‘outside the box’, I am an advocate for raising children as valued, autonomous and empowered human beings.
Through combining my innate affinity with children, my background studying and applying transformational mindset coaching, my passion for living an autonomous life and my natural ability to intuitively connect with parents and children on a relatable and vulnerable level, I guess it’s not at all surprising that I organically landed in the role of ‘Unschooling Coach’.
I’ve been nicknamed ’Sunshine’ by family, friends and clients. They say that a coaching session or a simple conversation with me is so inspiring and motivating, it’s like a “ray of sunshine” in their day, but I guess I’ll let you find out for yourself if you agree with them on that one. ☀️
Fun fact: I am also an author! The powerfully inspiring book ‘Conscious Transformation’ is coming out in October, where you can get a look into part of my own transformational journey.
I believe one of the quickest ways to touch and enrich a child’s heart is through laughter and connection which is why I’m also currently working on my debut children’s book series ‘The Wilderness’. - so if you have a ‘mini Attenborough’ who enjoys animals, adventure and a really good belly laugh… then watch this space!
I can be found where most people are found these days… on social media I gradually buckled and found my way back to ‘the gram’ after my extremely satisfying and productive year off socials!
Thanks for stopping by. I’m so glad you’re here.
