Hi, I’m Kate.

I’m a speaker, writer, and empathy educator based in Melbourne, Australia. My workshops, writing, and products are all designed to help people communicate in relationships.

Talking about feelings can be hard, so I made a way to make it easier. I created a deck of feelings cards called Tea & Empathy that have been used across the world to train healthcare professionals, students, educators, and many others. The cards enable people to better understand, engage with, and talk about feelings in a practical and non-confrontational way.

You can read more about me and my work here.



Lectures & Workshops

Through interactive workshops for groups of up to 100+ participants, I bring my extensive international experience as a relationships educator to organizations globally. I consult, provide guests lectures, and deliver staff development training programs.

Tea & Empathy workshop

Tea & Empathy is a skills-based workshop for groups wanting to increase their practical empathy skills. We explore what empathy is, what empathy isn’t, and how empathy can support our personal and professional relationships.

EMpathy and Self-care Training 

Sustainable empathy requires sustainable self-care. These extended workshops explore the different types of self-care needed to meaningfully recharge and fend off burnout. Self-care is more than just a spa day and this training is all about building those tools.
