About Kate Reed

MA (Counselling)

I am a woman, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a partner, a teacher, a student, a ceremonialist, an energy worker, a writer, a dreamer, a traveller, a weaver, a friend and so much more - just as you are. 

I am a recovering high achiever. An insatiable seeker. An optimist. 

I curl and unfurl according to the cycles and seasons of Gaia's natural rhythms and am supported and guided on many levels.  

I believe in equality, and integrity and that love and compassion are the most precious gifts we can offer one-another.

I am deeply called to working in Circle with women as we heal our hearts and re-connect to our own internal guidance system to help bring peace and balance to our lives, our communities and the collective.

The Sister Circles

I have been facilitating Sister Circles for over 20 years, amongst the many and varied contours of my professional life as a counsellor, youth worker, health coach, and business owner.

I have facilitated hundreds of Circles and Workshops and created a Level 1 and Level 2 Facilitator Training Program so women can take this work back into their communities. 

Having worked with women who are healing the deepest of wounds as well as those who are looking for some clarity in their lives, it is an honour and a privilege to gently and lovingly help each woman on their way to finding more peace in their hearts and more happiness in their lives.

My dream is that every woman has the opportunity to sit in a safe and empowering Circle as they navigate the joys and challenges of life. 

What is this work based on?

All the Circles, Workshops and Retreats I create (and co-create) are a blend of modern human psychology and shamanic/ earth based practices. 

Combining both in circles, rituals and ceremonies, allows us to feel 'safe' in our left brain (masculine structure) so we can surrender and explore from our right brain (feminine flow). This is the sweet spot where the magic happens and we are tuned to the higher frequencies that sit just outside our everyday awareness.

I strongly believe that women are being called to rise both individually and collectively. To do this we must continue to take responsibility for our personal healing journey. Being in Circle with other women is an important pathway towards this.

Facilitator Training

Teaching other women how to hold safe and sacred Circles fulfils me in a way that nothing else can. It is without-a-doubt a large part of my soul contract in this lifetime and I walk this path with gratitude and reverence to my ancestors, my teachers and all those who are helping and supporting me to continue this work.

In 2017 the Level 1 Facilitator Training Program was internationally recognised as an approved modality with the International Institute of Complementary Therapist. This was an important milestone for validating the potency of this work and the skills the graduates gain from the Training.

The Sister Circle Facilitator family is growing at a beautiful rate and I welcome you with open arms to the tribe of women who have also felt activated by ‘the call’ to hold sacred Sister Circles in their communities. I am so happy you are here. For more information on the Training Programs, Click Here.

‘I am continually inspired by the courage of women who are willing to show up and to be vulnerable and receive the support of their fellow Sisters. Deep healing can happen when a person is ‘seen’ and held in love by others.’

I am devoted to continuing to expand my understanding of this earth journey and the great mysteries of life.

I was fortunate to start on my 'path' at an early age and commenced my 'formal' academic training at the age of 18 at the Macquarie University in Sydney Australia, going on to then complete a Masters degree in Counselling at the University of Western Sydney.

Since then, there is rarely a time when I am not studying something!

For the past 7 years I have undergoing rigorous training and initiations with Shamanic Energy Training ® and am currently studying to be a Shamanic Magician through The White Dragon Lineage which they represent. 

I have found that my formal studies in human behaviour in my early years pair potently with the esoteric studies of late, allowing me to approach the work from a grounded and holistic perspective whilst incorporating higher levels of energetic understanding.
