“A few months ago, I was crazy struggling. Even though my first company’s main mission was to encourage women to take time for self care… even though I host a group called The Self-Care Revolution… even though I lost nearly a year of my life to debilitating anxiety that stemmed in a lack of self care… I wasn’t doing the work. I knew what I had to do, or at least some of it, but I let myself get swept up in the grind, and I was tanking. I wasn’t sleeping, I was hyper emotional, my anxiety was creeping back in. And while I knew there were things to do, I wasn’t doing them, and I wasn’t asking for help.
I spent the month of March working with Kate. Talking through the things that stressed me, coming up with actionable steps that I could take (that weren’t big and daunting, which would’ve been impossible) to shift gears back into my self-care routine. She helped me create a morning ritual that nourishes me still, and helped me give myself permission for some spaciousness in my schedule. There was reflection, forgiveness, and all done from this place of loving support, without judgment.
We all need a Kate in our lives. Someone to remind us of our light when we think we’ve lost our way. “

“The last 6 months have been a really struggle: I did a 180-degree turnabout in my career goals, had health problems, been horribly on edge and some really old junky stuff came up which turned me into more of a gremlin than I usually am.
I think that if you’ve had really big, painful, troubled emotional stuff to deal with, part of it will probably stay with you the rest of your life, so I’ll always be at least a little bit of a mess. But I’ve been trying to do a lot of hard, grubby, tear-filled work in the last few months and get myself ‘un-stuck’. I still have lots and lots to do, but I’m really pleased about getting to a point where I’ve finished a huge bulk of work that I’ve had a tough time with, am waking up early, feeling really energetic, productive and joyful, discovering loads of new ideas for my research, writing and yoga, and have started a new fitness and nutrition programme after about 15 years of living in really junky ways that vacillated between being overly controlling or losing all control.
A big, BIG part of helping me find this flow again and breaking through the ‘stuckness’ has been working with the incredible Kate Bartolotta, both in her In The Flow programme and with one-on-one coaching. I am bowled over by her kindness, her big heart and her huge passion for helping you find your groove. I wish more teachers were like this with this real care that the other person rocks their best self.
I highly recommend working with Kate for anyone wanting a boost, and extra love for getting where you want to be, so you can be just as maddeningly chirpy and happy as I am these days.”

“I had long been a fan of Kate’s writing and insight and felt that when I was ready to pull the trigger on hiring a coach, there was never another option for me. Leading up to our work together I was going through a number of major life changes, felt an overall sense of being out of sorts and was looking for some help with which direction to turn.
Kate immediately got me thinking along the lines of distilling down what I was actually after out of life through dialogue and different exercises, and then helped me form tangible steps to head in that direction. Throughout the process, I not only gained a clearer perspective of which direction I was heading, I learned a lot about myself in the process.
I never once felt rushed or like I was just a number to her. You can feel Kate genuinely cares about her clients and their wellbeing. If you are ready to do the work and invest in yourself I would highly recommend seeing if Kate is a good fit. I consider the clarity I gained from our work together invaluable.”

“Kate is outstanding to work with. She is insightful and extremely intelligent and knowledgeable. I’ve always been impressed with how she manages to infuse kindness and frankness together.
It’s been a joy to work with Kate in every capacity that I have. I am not necessarily easy to work with, and she doesn’t make me feel “difficult”, and I owe much of my current success to her.”
