Meet Little BIG Host, Kate

by Little BIG

In the hustle and bustle of modern life, where deadlines loom large and responsibilities never seem to take a break, self-care often takes a backseat. Yet, it’s precisely during these hectic times that we need it the most. That is why we are thrilled to have Kinesiologist, coach, mentor and facilitator Katherine (Kate) Anderson as a founding part of the Little BIG Tribe.

Kate is the Director of Ease Wellness, a local business with a mission to have a positive impact on their client’s and communities’ through supporting them with a range of self-care skill development.

In addition to seeing clients in her practice, keeping up with her kids and family, Kate makes time to host a a series of free community workshops at the Little BIG House.

So, what exactly can you expect from Kate’s monthly self-care workshop? Well, it’s not just any ordinary gathering. Kate’s workshop is a holistic journey into the realms of stress management, alleviating physical pain, enhancing personal wellbeing, and so much more. Each has a unique focus and often involves special guests, but it is always set to be a welcoming space where you can explore techniques, practices, and insights that empower you to take charge of your health and happiness – while making great likeminded friends!

We asked Kate to tell us more about what kind of event she’s running, and her experience as a Summer Hill local.

1. I’ve been a Summer Hill local since

2011, only recently having moved to Ashfield to find a house for my growing family. Two of my three children attend St Patrick’s Primary in Drynan Street. I have been working in Summer Hill as a Kinesiologist since 2017 and recently opened my new clinic space – Ease Wellness – in August 2021.

2. This community is special to me because

It’s where I bought my first house, where I lived when I got married and had my first two children and where I first really connected with a warm and caring community. So many great memories.

3. My favourite thing about the Little B.I.G. House is

How beautiful, clean, comfortable and accommodating the space is. The facilities are perfect for the styles of wellness workshops I hold. The Little BIG Foundation team have been wonderful and open to me hosting various workshops over the past year.

4. The next workshop I’m running in the Little BIG House is

With my collaborator, Peak Performance and Wellness Coach, Jen Lewis, is called ‘Empowering Your Perceptions‘. In this free self-care workshop we deep-dive into the origin of perceptions and explore how they shape our life’s experiences.

5. I hope this workshop will make participants feel

We have provided a safe and collaborative space, allowing them to explore and challenge negative belief systems that are holding them back, create conscious choices and respond to stress skilfully and learn techniques to reverse their stress response.

6. The top thing on my bucket list is

To positively contribute to the health and wellness of my clients, workshop and retreat participants – this is my goal for 2022.

7. I’m most grateful for

The support I receive from my family and friends.

8. The last Little BIG thing / action I did for someone else was

Host the last free workshop – A Connected Self, where Jen and I shared techniques to help relieve stress and create a stronger connection between mind and body. We were so grateful to the Little BIG Foundation for providing us with a space to share our knowledge.

“This community is special to me because this is where I first really connected with a warm and caring community.”
