 ‘I had given up on traditional therapy until Katrina. But then there’s nothing much traditional about Kat, and that’s why she’s so effective! Using a combination of therapies she is able to get to the heart of an issue and help you see it in a new way, so you can move on from it. Every time I spoke to Kat I felt better, more motivated, and more hopeful, which was a revelation for me because I hadn’t felt hope for such a long time. And Kat achieved all of this in a much shorter timeframe than any therapist I had seen prior. So if you are really ready to move on from your ‘stuff’, if you are ready to live the life you deserve, then check your ego at the door and speak to Kat because I can’t recommend her highly enough.’

~ Vanessa 

Testimonials 

‘She has this innate ability, this gift, to gently tease your deepest issues out of you, and then quickly assist you to fill those gaps with inspired thoughts, clarity and enthusiasm, and awaken you to a whole new world of being. Katrina is a truly inspired and gifted soul’ ~ Sky

If you’re ready, immerse yourself. Katrina Steel , revealer of love, light and truth. Assisting you to reconnect with what is, through understanding what is not’  ~ Renee

I came to see Katrina around 3 months ago after a relapse. After a very strong recommendation about Kat's no nonsense approach to accessing what is truly holding us back behind all the closed, often very dark doors I decided to go for it. After the very first session Kat was able to help me see and unlock what I had no idea was the very core of my restraints and pain. Something I thought I had looked at with other therapist's before but Kat went to a whole new dimension with compassion, empathy and a very direct line of sight to what lies benith. Through education Kat has helped me understand how to apply the right tools to my life situation and feel the true strength I have within. I am forever grateful for this ~ Grant
