Katie studied to become a Wellness Coach because she has always been intrigued by the link between exercise, a positive mindset and performance in life and work. She enjoys listening and supporting people to achieve their fitness and wellness goals.
Before Katie became a Wellness Coach and opened her own coaching business she worked as a Project Manager in Australia and overseas. She has completed studies including Level 1, 2 and 3 professional studies in Wellness Coaching, a Bachelor of Science degree, a certificate in Holistic Counselling, Personal training qualifications skills plus other fitness and wellness short courses.
Katie’s favourite ways to exercise are doing weights training, going for walks in nature and practicing yoga. If she had to choose a favourite move she would choose deadlifts because they are an all over body exercise and she always feels amazing afterwards.

Tania’s passion for working with individuals to improve their mental health comes from her personal experiences supporting family members, friends and colleagues diagnosed with mental ill health and being exposed to losing a love one through suicide. She has chosen to help in the area of exercise as she feels that this is under utilised as an intervention and its impacts underestimated. Tania has a great belief in her clients and her core focus as a coach is to work with her clients to draw on their own resources and strengths to help them work through and overcome their barriers to exercise. She has a warm, energetic and pragmatic approach that is underpinned by key psychological theories and approaches shown to help people achieve their goals.
