Testimonials From Client Organizations



When I attended Kate's workshop training I learned about how being mindful might help me through life’s difficulties.  Kate’s comprehensive understanding of the science and physiology behind meditation and of the various techniques and methods towards enlightenment helps you to build a foundation, but she knows enough to let you get there yourself.  She has a way of enticing your interest but nothing is ever forced, it's your path to travel — William Harper, MD, FRCPC, Associate Professor of Medicine, Divisions of Endocrinology and Internal Medicine, McMaster University. Chief of Medicine, Hamilton General Site of Hamilton Health Sciences.



Kate Kerr of Wake Up Kate is not only a captivating storyteller, she is an inspirational teacher.  We were very lucky to have Kate deliver her mindfulness and stress reduction session last month for our staff at the Canadian Cancer Society.  In one and a half hours, Kate impressed upon the group the what and how of mindfulness while weaving in all the research and science behind each strategy — Deirdre Brough, Associate Director, Corporate Engagement, Canadian Cancer Society, National Office. 



Since learning how to listen carefully, mindfully, without thinking about what I’m going to say next, I have become more authentically me. Letting go of thinking ahead, and embracing trust in my moment-to-moment thought process. I have been able to be more present with my experiences and my team — Laura Murphy, Vice President, Velocity EHS.



Kate will 'WakeUp' your interest in mindfulness and motivate you to create healthy change in your life.

Duranleau, CEO, MacLachlan College



Kate you are truly a gifted facilitator. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with such empathy and compassion. So much of what you shared has resonated deeply with me. I’ve experienced adversity many times in my life but in the last few years it has affected my health and happiness and I’ve been searching for how to regain my balance. Your workshop was just what I needed. Thank you for’ waking’ me up and helping me find my way back to me — Carolyn Simpson, President, Money Moods Incorporated



After attending the 8-week MBSR course with Kate, I left with more knowledge and understanding about how mindfulness could be used on a daily basis to help improve my relationships at work and at home. Having the ability to ‘respond’ instead of ‘react’ in a situation is an instrumental tool that allows for clear thinking and more positive resolutions. This was my first exposure to mindfulness, and while I was a little bit skeptical going in, I’m now continuing to use what I’ve learned on a daily basis —  Brent Clifford, Partner, OKD Marketing.
