“Katherine, you have absolutely changed my life. Through sharing yourself and the Wheel of Creativity I rediscovered a path I’d travelled decades ago. The Wheel of Creativity brought me new perspectives, which have lightened my heart. It’s a discovery, an openness. How thankful I am for this process. The Wheel of Creativity is a guide, a tool that is always there for you.”
– Diane Lydon, Events Producer
“What changed my life was to see that the process exists and that I can trust it. I saw that I have been in all of the stages at one point or another without knowing that they had a name, and that there was a process that linked them all. That made me feel more secure, and so I’m able to let go.”

“The conception of life as a creative adventure, the idea that our lives are made up of the full fabric of our natures, with all our complex (and often contradictory) urges, that living ‘creatively’ requires finding our deepest values – setting us on a journey that can lead us in directions we might never have foreseen, perhaps leading us to abandon what we believed our ‘goals’ were, or should be – this was for me a refreshing statement of the truth of life when I heard Katherine speak last weekend (at the ‘Wealth Beyond Money’ workshop). I have never heard the complexity of life honoured quite like this before.
Almost all ‘personal development’ approaches I’ve come across assume that we know what we want and do not call our goals into question – they enjoin us to make our goals clear, draw up action plans, support our drive with compelling motives, crank up our level of commitment, take lots of action, enlist the right systems and people to support us, practice ‘positive thinking’, and the rest of it.
But such approaches tend to be reductionistic, encouraging us to submit our lives to a system, with a pre-determined destination in mind. They encourage us to believe our life paths should resemble a continual upward trajectory, with any departure from this representing a ‘failure’. The truth is that life – especially for the creative individual – is a creative journey in which there is no pre-determined destination. It is a journey of discovery and personal development. Life is also messy and paradoxical and full of unpredictability, and anyone who has achieved any meaningful self-realisation knows this. It is fraught with uncertainty, with struggles and crises and surprises which are part of the rich tapestry of life and which we must embrace if we are to grow.
Katherine presented a framework for viewing and approaching our lives which embraces this uncertainty and the multiplicity of life and encouraged us to see life as a creative process and as a quest – to find our essential values and strive to live in harmony with them, knowing that life must be a journey of discovery.”
