It’s time to prioritise yourself.
My 1-1 sessions get to the bottom of your confidence issues and unhappiness so you can wake up with a smile.
It’s like a mindset reset.
Want to wake up confident? It’s possible.
There is no way I can truly describe how we’ll work together, because we all will have different past and current experiences. But here’s what I can say: I work with people who realise that if they want their life to change, they’re going to have to change too – and this will take effort. But that’s where I come in – if you are ready for it (and willing to work for it), I can help you unlock your potential so you can become your very best self.
I have one-off appointments, or membership options for long-term mentoring.
We work together for 7 days.
My consultation process isn’t just coming in to see me for a session. After working with hundreds of clients, I’ve created the most efficient and effective process there is.
The process starts as soon as you book the appointment, and doesn’t end until a week after our session together.
During those 7 days, you and I will continue to work together so we can tap into your ‘real-life’ mindset.
It’s a process like no other, and one that works.
You are ready to create a change.
You’ve tried everything – the diets, the exercise plans – but you still feel trapped in a cycle of unhealthy habits and negative thoughts.
Maybe a light bulb switched on after reading about my “Forever Approach” and you’re ready to break the cycle, begin the process and transform your life.
Choose your consultation type.
You can either choose to visit me in person or we can ‘meet up’ online.
Many of my clients love the convenience of online appointments as there’s no difficulty in travelling to appointments because of distance or remoteness, mobility problems, children, or simply your busy work schedule.
Schedule a date and time for your session.
Use the online booking system and schedule a time and date that works best for you.
You will receive a comprehensive email with everything you need to know about your appointment, including the address and parking details (if visiting me in person) or how to connect with me online. Don’t worry, it’s easy!
Complete the pre-consultation survey.
Within this email you’ll receive a link to complete an in-depth questionnaire before our first meeting.
Essentially, I’m aiming to get to know you as well as you know yourself. After that, my goal is to be in your shoes.
This means we can start making progress immediately, instead of spending our time getting background information.
Your 1-1 Hope session.
As long as you have a mobile or laptop, good internet access, and access to quiet, safe place, our online session will be just like a face-to-face session.
In those 60 minutes, we’ll enter a judgement-free zone of self-exploration, realisation and progression towards your new self.
At the end, I will give you action points and tools to further develop what we’ve worked on during our session.
7-days of introspection.
Our communication doesn’t end there. During the next 7 days not only will I give you gentle nudges to complete your homework, but you’ll also keep a diary of your thoughts and feelings… with a twist.
To keep you accountable, you will be texting these thoughts to me.
This is my ‘secret weapon’ to unlock the thoughts that are holding you back from being the best version of your self.
Our follow-up session.
Seven days after our final session, we’ll jump back on a call for 15 minutes.
This allows me to check in with you about your progress and results, and answer any questions you may have.
Continued support options are available to selected clients.
The reason I say ‘selected’ is because (as mentioned above), results don’t happen by magic. Sometimes we’re simply not at the point of our lives to dedicate the time and energy to catalyse the kind of change we desire.
So, if I don’t think you’re ready to continue, I’ll let you know. But also know I’ll be here when you’re ready.
If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to have a private session, here’s your chance to have a look!
Sarah* was one of my mentoring students, who did a series of sessions over 4 weeks.
As you’ll see, she completed a lengthy questionnaire prior to our first appointment together.
This not only gives us a baseline to work with, but also a strategic way to objectively look at what we’re trying to accomplish together as a team.
*Please note Sarah has given me permission to share this video with you. This session was done online, however you can also choose to come visit me in my office (benefit: get cuddles with Eszie & Eddie 🐶)
“But I’m not sure if you can help me”
Hi! I’m Dr Katherine Iscoe and people call me “The Confidence Expert”. Other than having a pretty bad shoe addiction, I have completed my Bachelor, Masters and Doctoral degrees in exercise physiology and a post-graduate certificate in counselling.
To toot my own horn, I’ve received several academic awards and have written over 20 clinical papers, books and abstracts.
I’ve listened to hundreds of people and learned each has a powerful story to tell. Some stories were heartbreaking, others were painful, and others were horrific. While each story was different, one similarity rung true:
We think our problems will go away if we’re beautiful.
If I’ve learned anything from my personal experiences, over a decade of academia and hundreds of hours working with my clients and students, it’s that:
Our appearance is only the tip of the iceberg to the real problems we face.
My students and clients often hold a tremendous amount of shame, and it is this shame, rather than their weight or appearance, that holds them back from living the life they’ve always wanted to live.
Sure, changing what we eat and how much we move will influence how our body looks and feels, which is important.
News flash: that isn’t rocket science.
So of course, stuffing kale into our smoothies and doing squats might change the way we look, but it won’t result in miracles.
What we need to understand is that our bodies and minds are much more complicated than that.
So if you are one of the millions of people chasing the solution for long-term success, here’s what you need to understand:
Our body is the sum and reflection of multiple factors.
Start reconnecting with ALL of them.
Success is not in the numbers on your bathroom scales. It’s in the happiness you feel each day, the perceptions you have of yourself and your appearance, and your self-esteem.
Before I met Dr Katherine I was unhappy, overweight and had a number of health problems, but the biggest problem I had was that I hated myself every day because I couldn’t seem to ‘snap out of it’ and just lose the weight! I thought about my weight and weight loss/diets every day.
The changes I underwent with Dr Katherine were like nothing else I’ve ever been through. For the first time in a long time I was so kind to myself, and began to have days where I only had love for and pride in myself. The pressure was finally off and I could achieve every goal I had for myself including losing some weight, improving my fitness and doing things just for fun, but most importantly my mind was so clear and my soul was so healthy! My view on life was completely different and it became so much fun whilst achieving the things I had longed for so many years for.
The effects of Dr Katherine’s influence on me have been long lasting and I have never had the urge to ‘start again’ on a new fitness regime or diet, as I have finally learnt that life isn’t about following a diet perfectly, or starting a new fitness regime. Before meeting Dr Katherine, I was petrified of getting married as the first thing that came to mind was how disgusted I would be in the photos.
I am so thankful to have met her, as it was a huge turning point in my life – on my wedding day I saw a beautiful, happy bride, rather than the fat failure I thought I once was. For someone who knows you’re worth more than a reasonably satisfying life, Dr Katherine is a complete must-have!
I went to see Dr Kat about 3 months before my wedding in my own private hell because I had decided that if I wasn’t going to be ‘skinny’ for my wedding then the whole day would be a disaster. As soon as I met Dr Kat I instantly had a total girl crush. The woman is gorgeous and has such an amazingly magnetic and positive energy.
I thought I was there for ‘OK so you need to starve for the next 12 weeks and exercise until you fall over every day’ kind of pep talk… I could not have been more wrong. My experience with Dr Kat has transformed the way I view food and exercise. I now realise that she wanted to understand and tackle my long history with my unhappy body image for the long term, not just the short term.
She gave me really easy and yummy suggestions and recipes to tweak my current diet, so it was not dramatically different and really easy to follow and stick to. She basically taught me how to enjoy food and exercise again. I still have her in my head sometimes, but in a really positive way in terms of eating nutritious and balanced meals.
The final 12 weeks in the lead up to my wedding I wasn’t starving and grumpy. Shocker right?! I ate yummy and nutritious food and actually had heaps of energy to exercise. The weird thing was, even though I had a lot of compliments from people about how great I looked, the most important thing to me was that I felt amazing and beautiful in my dress on the day. The whole day was incredible and not because of my weight or measurements.
Thank you for changing my life and my attitude towards food and exercise Dr Kat. I am forever grateful.
3 months before my first wedding dress fitting I was in a panic, desperate to lose weight for the big day, feeling trapped in an endless and unsuccessful cycle of losing a little bit of weight then putting it back on. I was so glad a friend recommended I see Dr Katherine, but I certainly didn’t get what I bargained for.
In pursuit of perfection, I wanted was a quick fix like everyone else promised. What I got instead was an easier, more sustainable, more enjoyable, more permanent process. I lost weight, but not by obsessing over it and cutting out everything good, instead by achieving balance and letting go of all the stress and the rules. I changed my thinking for good. I accepted myself and my body. And best of all, I felt AMAZING on my wedding day, I felt free and healthy and gorgeous.
I could not be more grateful for the life long changes to both my mind and body that all started with Dr Katherine, and for once I keep gaining momentum not falling in a heap and eating chocolate blocks. Not every moment of every day is like an Instagram pic, but it’s real, sustainable and good for you, and I am healthier and feel happier and better than ever.

Do you provide health care rebates?
Unfortunately not at this time. However, I have some wonderful psychologists and counselors that I often refer my clients (or potential clients) to!
Are you qualified to help me?
Great question young grasshopper – and SO glad you even thought to ask! I have over 20 years experience in the health and wellness space, including a post-graduate certificate in counselling. However, I’m the first to admit (and scream out!) that the only thing I really know is that I still don’t know a LOT! That’s why it’s always best to email me first so I can figure out if I’m the right person for you. If not, I’ll do my best to find someone who can help!
Can you provide a guarantee?
The mentoring process is a 2-way street, it only works if you do the work! It’s important to understand this isn’t a quick-fix or even ‘easy’ process. So if you’re ready to dive in, I’m ready too! Let’s do this!
