About MI Wellness
Welcome to MI Wellness, where the power of transformation and holistic well-being is at the heart of our journey. I'm Kate, your guide on this path to mental wellness and personal empowerment.
My Story - In 2016, I found myself spiralling into a dark abyss, grappling with crippling anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. The weight of it all finally culminated in a mental breakdown in May 2017. This moment was a turning point, the catalyst for my personal journey of recovery and understanding the complexities of mental health illnesses.
My story didn't end there. The challenges I faced became my motivation, driving me to uncover ways to balance overwhelming emotions and rediscover my mental well-being. I turned to mindfulness, meditation, yoga, breathwork, journaling, and even scent therapy – tools that not only helped me heal but also began to shape my work in the wellness industry.
A New Direction - In the midst of the 2020 lockdown, I realised that it was time to pivot my sustainable fashion business towards the realm of wellness. I started discussing and writing more about mental health, sharing the coping tools that had become an integral part of my life. I embarked on a journey to understand the theories and neuroscience behind these tools, which led me to a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course. This course introduced me to the power of mindfulness, compassion, and inquiry in managing stress, anxiety, and pain.
I felt a calling to help others understand their mental health challenges, recognise their self-worth, and embark on their own transformative journeys. This drove me to pursue further education, including CPCAB Level 2,3 in Counselling Studies + Skills. I'm currently studying for my Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, ultimately aiming to become a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist in 2025, specialising in Person-Centred Theory, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).
The Birth of MI Wellness - With MI Wellness, my mission is clear: to fuse my knowledge of Humanistic therapy and mindfulness with simple well-being coping tools. This fusion has given birth to a scent-therapy wellness range, designed to be accessible to everyone, supporting emotional balance and mental wellness.
My commitment to sustainability and ethical values remains unwavering as I take this new direction. Our planet and its people will always be at the forefront of MI Wellness.
More About Me - Beyond my professional journey, I'm a forty-something wifey and mother of two wonderful girls, residing in the vibrant city of Liverpool, UK. These days my only addiction is to green tea, and yes, I'm known to have a bit of a potty mouth too.
My journey is ongoing, and I'm excited to walk it with you. Together, we'll explore the depths of mental wellness and help you become the best version of yourself.
