Kate Howe: 

“There’s great coaching … and then there’s coaching by Kate Howe. Kate has the intelligence, focus and technical proficiency that any great coach must have, but then adds something else – an ability to see the situation through the eyes of the client and intuit what will work to make them do their best… She’s a truly gifted teacher infused with spirit, creativity and fun.”

∼ Tony Talalay, CEO, Brassica Protection Products, LLC 

“I wish Kate lived closer to home. I’d tried many things before but doing bodywork with Kate is like opening the door to a completely new world of healing and wellbeing. A breakthrough for me, so thank you!”

∼ Emilie Wells

‘Kate has a unique ability to guide and coach you through self imposed limits in a way that carries through whatever you’re working on and into the rest of your life.’
