About the guest:

KATEReadheadshotKate Read is a emotional eating coach and sensitivity + addiction specialist.  She  understands how easy it is to get completely lost in the depth of all that we feel.  She gets how remarkably simple it is to fall into addictions to cope with this depth. Having known numb really well, Kate empathizes with living partly between the worlds of the living and the dead. Most of all, she wholeheartedly grasps what sensitive souls are capable of when they are not struggling with addictions {to food, thoughts, control, exercise, alcohol, shopping, etc}. Knowing this, Kate has no choice but to guide fellow sensitives to a place of perceiving the vastness of all they are so that they may contribute to the world with their incredible complexity.
