Client Testimonial

"My employer appointed Kate to work with me following an injury to my ankle and a diagnosis of CRPS (Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome). Kate's regular contact, support and guidance genuinely helped me on a road to recovery and back to work much sooner than expected. Her knowledge of the condition and holistic approach was invaluable not only to me but to my family and of course, my employer. Kate's guidance has enabled me to continue towards a full recovery in a positive manner." - CM

Client Testimonial

"Kate and her team were instrumental to my successful return to work after a year's sick leave due to a sudden, serious depression. Until then I had been a highly successful career woman, and then mum of three. I was completely at a loss as to how to get myself to a place where I could re-establish my own and others confidence in my ability to juggle home and work, and find time for me." - AH
