Kate James is a life, career and business coach
I'm also the author of five best-selling books, including Believe in Yourself and Do What You Love and Be Mindful and Simplify Your Life. I've spent the past 18 years working as a coach, mindfulness teacher, speaker and retreat facilitator.
Utilising tools from Positive Psychology and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, mindfulness and mindful self-compassion, I work with a wide range of clients – from leaders and business owners to lawyers, students, artists, doctors, writers, project managers and yoga teachers – to help them increase self-awareness, clarify their personal strengths, develop confidence and gain clarity about their career and life direction.
My clients are creative, insightful people who have an interest in living their own version of a successful and meaningful life.
Having practised meditation for almost 30 years, I've taught mindfulness workshops and retreats in Melbourne, Byron Bay and Bali, where I introduce people to different to principles of mindfulness and how they can be integrated into everyday life. I've spoken on national television and radio and been quoted in The Age, body+soul, BRW, Marie Claire, Mindfood magazine, and Mind Body Green.
I completed my certification in coaching with International Coach Academy in 2002 and was one of the first coaches in Australia to achieve the PCC accreditation with International Coach Federation in 2005.
I'm the mother of two adult daughters and in 2017, my husband and I followed our dream and moved to the Mornington Peninsula where we now live on a small acreage.
I have supported hundreds of amazing clients to help them grow their confidence and create careers, businesses and lives that they love. If you're ready to pursue a path that feels meaningful to you, I'd love to help you do the same.
