Hola, I'm Kate Squires
I’m here to help you get your glow on. Starting from the inside, out.
I’m fascinated about the human body and how our thoughts, lifestyle, and environment affects us. Our biochemical and neurological processes (read: fancy scientific wording for how we function and think) are so incredibly intertwined that the relationship between these processes can lead to both positive and negative responses in the body. It’s kind of like a multiple choice quiz. Your choices, and your body’s response to those choices, can ultimately lead to great health, or intolerances and yep, even disease.
As a Creative Director for an international cosmetics brand, I’ve spent the first phase of my career focussed on external beauty. But as I’ve grown and evolved I’ve realised it’s the internal stuff that affects not only how we feel, but also what shows up on the outside.
Now, as a certified Integrative Nutrition and Holistic Health Coach, I help women struggling with stomach pains, low energy, bloating and weight gain get to the bottom of the issue in order to know how to eat, heal their body and lose weight.
Through personalised, one-on-one sessions, I support my clients to make nutritional and lifestyle tweaks and shifts that
rocket-launch them towards their health goals.
One person’s food is another’s poison, which is why periodical and fad diet plans tend to fail. I’m about getting to the root cause of resistance in your health, because life’s too short to be feeling so meh. I’m here to support and empower you to find your missing road map to health, so you can get both hands back on the wheel.
If you're riding the daily rollercoaster of stomach pains, bloating, rushed, awkward and uncomfortable trips to the bathroom and feeling like you've never got any energy, don’t worry; you’re not alone.
My journey of health struggles is a doozy of a run sheet; gut issues (all of the above mentioned symptoms), toxic relationships, near chronic stress, a minor nervous break down, anxiety, depression and hormone imbalances. But you know what, when I learnt how to identify the root cause of the issues and navigate my way out, conquering my goals of reaching optimal health was much easier then I thought it would be.
Breaking point for me was when I realised I was sacrificing my health for being a slave to my job. I've always loved my work, but as the workload and stress grew, so did the symptoms of my health conditions. The stomach pains were crippling, I was sick to death of worrying about needing to run out of meetings to go to the bathroom (and worse not making it), anxiety would keep me awake at night and stop me from living my life like I wanted to, getting out of bed in the morning was a struggle and on days off I would fall into a heap. I didn't realise it at the time, but I was depressed; hindsight through the guidance of healers is a wonderful thing.
Coincidentally, at the time I hit breaking point I was studying Integrative Nutrition. In a moment of synchronicity I used myself as my first client, learning how to heal myself and get my life back on track. Through nutritional and lifestyle changes, I was able to minimise my symptoms if not eliminate them completely and learnt how to manage areas ongoing to avoid symptoms as much as possible.
Now, I sleep better, wake with a tonne more energy to take on the day, know what foods will trigger my symptoms and which will fuel and heal my body, and have a giant box full of tools that I use each and every day to keep me feeling happy, healthy and able to live my life to the fullest.
Through Health Coaching, I combine my two passions to help you find your fiercest version of true beauty – AKA glowing health, a happy gut and hormones, clear skin, unshakeable confidence, and sweeter-than-honey happiness.
