KATE RYDGE - Life Coach & Mentoring Programs

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." Rumi

Personal Mentoring Programs & Coaching Sessions support the transformation of stuck, painful and difficult life experiences into flow and aliveness.

In offering this work I desire to enhance your life with wild sourced wisdom, personal truth and a genuine acceptance of your true self. 

I invite you to be in touch.

To connect in person I have a 20 min EXPLORATION Skype call on offer. To make a time please email me at kate@naturephilosophy.com.au

In connection, Kate

 Kate Rydge


Sessions with me are heart felt and deeply respectful explorations of what is happening in life as you see it. As we explore your story together we can clarify and transform your life's challenges into unique pathways for personal growth.

Counselling & Mentoring with me can be particularly helpful if you are experiencing personal or family distress which is blocking your capacity to experience creativity, love and joy.

If you are looking to enhance your life through a deeper understanding of your Soul's unique direction I can help you.

Releasing frozen trauma held deep in your body's memory will allow you to reclaim disowned parts of your true self - releasing your authentic self, with greater wholeness and potency.

As we move through your sessions we will cultivate your unique deep reservoir of knowing and a bodily felt sense of your personal rightness. Once established we can dive into a deeper initiation into the powerful mysteries of earth connection.

During the last 15 years I have worked extensively with people experiencing the following issues:

Low Mood, Depression & Anxiety, Suicide Trauma, Addiction, Childhood Trauma via sexual, verbal and physical abuse, Life Instability, Grief & Loss, Excessive Fear of the dark and being alone in the wilderness, Body Image Dissatisfaction, Lack of Clarity and Purpose, Unclear Connection to your Place/Country, Crisis and Major Life Transitions, Relationship Issues and Adolescent/Parenting Issues.

I work predominently with women and offer culturally sensitive sessions for indigenous Australians and LGBT community members.

I am available for one off sessions, however I prefer to partner for 3 & 6 month Mentoring Programs.

I am available to connect via Phone/Skype or in person if possible (Coffs Harbour, NSW and occasionally Sydney, Australia).


I specialise in offering transformational healing programs which shift deeply held trauma and cultivate a deeper relationship to your spiritual essence.

I am a Professional Counsellor, Energetic Healer, Vision Quest Protector/Trainer and facilitator of Women's Retreats and Deep Nature Connection Programs. I have undertaken both formal and informal shamanic training in indigenous healing lineages.

I have worked in the healing profession for over 15 years and through embracing my own struggles and personal power I have developed a keen love of helping others to find greater grace and wholeness in life.

I deeply understand how distressing life can be when we feel stuck in emotional pain and are unable to flow with our personal power. I often use the mirror of the natural world to make clear areas where we are blocked and with awareness cultivate greater spiritual wholeness and power.

The fire of my own journey has lead me into many deep immersion experiences within the wilderness. I have found a deep reservoir of earth based wisdom through many personal Vision Quests, the journey of motherhood, indigenous connections and nature based skills.

It is my life's mission to offer this wild sourced wisdom - bringing greater ease, earth connection, spiritual awareness and personal freedom into your daily life.

Vision Quest Mentoring addresses the challenge of transferring the mystical and unbounded wisdom of Quest into concrete conscious movement upon the earth.

Whether you are participating in a Nature Philosophy Vision Quest or sitting in the bush solo I can help you to distil the potency of your Vision Quest experience.

Vision Quest Mentoring Sessions are based on meeting you at your greatest point of need as you digest the integration of a larger part of your unique essence.  I welcome the opportunity to both witness, guide and protect you through the transformation of your Vision Quest experience.
