Hi, I’m Kate.

Sometimes life can feel a little lackluster and you can be left with that feeling of – really…is this it? It’s not that there is necessarily anything wrong, it’s just that it doesn’t feel so damn amazingly right either. You could be exhausted, or just feeling like there is a piece missing. Regardless, something feels out of whack. I get it.
Every single one of us has the power to create a beautiful, balanced and happy life for ourselves. One that lights us up from the inside and just feels downright ahhmazing. You know those people that walk around looking like they are almost glowing? They have a warm energy, their eyes seem to sparkle and people just love being in their company. We all have the ability to be one of those people. We all have the power to feel all filled up and confident in our own skin. You can connect with your authentic-self and start feeling like you’re living on purpose rather than having life just happen to you.
My name is Kate and I’m the founder of Thrive.How. I’m your get-to-the-heart-of-the-matter sidekick who just happens to have a whole heap of knowledge about psychology, our minds, and what makes us deep-down happy. In addition to the knowledge, I’ve also put it into practice myself and found what really works and what doesn’t. Thrive.How is here because I believe so many people want more out of life, and know it’s possible, but just don’t know how to get there. I’m here to assist you with the “how” bit.
In terms of some backstory I have an MSc in Psychology and worked as a Corporate Psychologist for 5 years before becoming a mother. I worked and studied hard to get all that I thought I wanted. My dream was to be a success in the corporate world. In my mind that meant wearing a business suit, gorgeous heels, working at a management level and being respected for what I did (and I know I’m not the only one who thought success looked like heels and a suit!). I achieved all the things I set out to do by the time I was in my late 20’s.
When I realized I had in fact ticked all the boxes that I thought would secure my future happiness, I was disappointed with myself for having a sinking feeling deep inside of “Is this it? Is this what the next 30+ years of my life are going to look like?”. I felt like I should have been grateful for my success, but something still felt like it was missing. I realized that I had achieved the external goals I had chased after, but I had never really thought about how I wanted my life to actually feel.
Truth be told, I wanted my life to feel more like a joy than a daily grind, and I wanted to feel like I wasn’t missing a puzzle piece. Motherhood intervened and I jumped out of the world of corporate consulting and into a period of personal growth and discovery. I applied what I knew about positive psychology and personal connection to my own life and began working out what the missing pieces were. In short, over a last 4 years I have firmly cemented my personal happiness and I feel more complete than ever.
I want as many of my fellow humans to experience true deep-down in ya heart happiness, so I created Thrive.How. I believe we’re here to do more than survive; we’re #heretothrive (oh yeah…instagram me!). Since launching this business my thoughts and advice have been featured on Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen and elephant journal. Working with other’s to help them get the super good stuff out of life truly lights me up. I now know I’m right where I am supposed to be, doing exactly the work I am supposed to do.
