Hi, I’m Kate!

I love books, stationery, music, candles, learning about people, oh and biscuits!

I am a writer, teacher, coach, energy healer and meditation teacher. In my previous life I have been a teacher, receptionist, checkout operator, ice cream cone packer, childminder, children’s book seller and much more. I haven’t taken the easy road, but that has given me a wide range strategies to cope with those challenges.  I have fought some demons and learned to smile and appreciate the good things. I really believe that life is one long lesson and we are here to learn and grow along the way.

 Calm, happy, confident, assertive, empowered… alive!

Kate Beddow Writer

Writer

As a transformative writer I believe words have the power to change lives. If you want to connect deeply with others or yourself, writing helps.

I love to write. I find it healing, whether it is writing in my journal or writing for a magazine or book. It makes my heart sing. Using expressive writing helps you discover hidden, or forgotten, thoughts and emotions allowing you to move forward with a new found freedom and joy. I was asked to be a contributing author in “Women of Spirit” a few years ago, which was an amazing opportunity for me and made me realise that I wanted to write my own book. I have made a start so keep your eyes peeled for news on that.

Coach

I’m a little resistant to the word coach, but I can’t find a better one. What I practice comes from the heart. It comes from a combination of professional training, years of experience, natural compassion and a listening ear. I love learning about you and your life and helping motivate you to make changes and plan a future which makes you truly happy. Whether you need help with mental health issues, parenting challenges or confidence and self esteem, I am here to support you and help you make a plan.

Speaker 

 I love speaking about things that I am passionate about from writing, wellbeing and mindfulness to finding your inner passion and living with chronic illness. If you would like me to visit your group or organisation (or present to you online) you can find out more about the kind of events I support and talks I have given or contact me for more information. I am always happy to create new content specifically for your event. 

Wife

I could not be the woman I am without my amazing husband, Ian. Not only does he enable me to work on my own terms by supporting me, he is also the talent behind my meditation recordings and my videos. If something is media related and looks amazing, it is the work of IBMedia.

We have been together for over twenty years and like all couples, life hasn’t always been easy, but we have loved and supported each other throughout and it has made us stronger, together and as individuals.

I am so grateful to Ian for all his love and support, my rock.

Kate Beddow Mum

Mum 

Being a mum is one of the hardest but most rewarding things I have ever had the privilege to do. My children are a joy, for the most part, and the reason I do everything I do. I want them to see that they can be anything they want to be. I want them to know that whatever obstacles life may throw at them they can build something fulfilling and successful.

As they get older I realise more and more the importance of giving them roots to grow and wings to fly. They have both achieved so much already, I can’t wait to watch the next stage of their journey.

Friend 

What are we without our friends? I am blessed to have some of the most incredible friends. They support me, tell me the truth and have been with me through good times and bad. I love being surrounded by a community and value each and every person I come into contact with. This beautiful lady is my best friend, Callie, we don’t see each other as often as we would like, due to distance, but when we do, it is even more special.

If you would like to be part of my tribe why not join me on my social media channels? I am often found on Instagram or Facebook. Why not come over for a cuppa?

Kate Beddow Acromegaly

Acromegaly Warrior

Part of the reason I am passionate about wellbeing is that I have been that burnt out, exhausted mum trying to do it all and have it all.  When my daughter was 2 years old I was diagnosed with acromegaly. I was functioning on a physical level, but I was dead inside. I felt like a failure as a wife and mother, I had no idea who I was as a person any more. Thankfully over the last 15 years my surgery and ongoing treatment means that I can live a relatively “normal” life, but I will always be grateful for the lessons I learned during those dark days.

It would mean a lot to me if you would take the time to just learn a little about my condition by clicking the image or this link.
