The opportunity to have children is one of the greatest gifts bestowed to us, but these days it can also be one of the most stressful.  It is their birthright to be born ‘pristine’, unfortunately this is often not always the case, although we’re told, ‘they’re fine’ and ‘that’s normal’, we instinctively know our children are less healthy or functional than they should be.

OHC_images_All we really want

Are you… 

  • Struggling to get enough support at home to ensure that your children thrive and you thrive as their busy and caring mother?
  • Going from doctor to doctor and still not getting any answers or solutions you know are there?
  • Feeling intuitively that something is out of balance with your child?
  • Dealing with a child or children with sleep issues or tantrums?
  • At a loss as to what to feed your kids to keep their appetites fully satisfied with healthy options that taste good too?
  • Sick of thinking of new ways to feed your kids healthy foods and getting them to try it, let alone eat it?
  • Concerned about the incidence of chronic illnesses and adult diseases, e.g. diabetes, heart disease, mental illness, allergies and other autoimmune diseases that are steadily rising in our children?
  • Tired or confused?  You just want someone who’s done all the research and homework already?  Someone you can trust, with first hand experience, that’s qualified and has the expertise you need?

OHC_text_I hear you(purple)

I’m Kate Barnes, a busy, caring mother like you. I went through a pretty arduous time with my eldest child, Chloe. Even though Chloe wasn’t chronically unwell, there were clues that she wasn’t the thriving, healthy and happy child that I knew was her birthright.

There were several telling signs that her body wasn’t functioning optimally. To be frank, her social skills weren’t normal. Chloe was very shy. She wouldn’t look people in the eye. She had this little ‘pot belly’, she was very un-coordinated and her immune system wasn’t as strong as I knew it should be. These were all signs that initially we coined as “Oh that is just Chloe,” and wrote off as ‘normal’.

Yet, these signs were actually clear indicators of her imbalance.

At five years of age, Chloe’s left foot stopped developing, normally.

It was a frightening experience for us all. I was alarmed and very concerned and I wanted answers. Why would her foot stop developing? What was causing it? There must be a reason.

I pushed on, blindly. At that time my only support was my instinct and trust in the bodies innate ability to heal, my belief, a beautiful, supportive fellow health coach and my incredibly supportive husband. They were my guides. The general medical system had no cure for us. Offered no solutions or hope.

At the same time, I was horrified and appalled to hear what I was being recommended and encouraged to feed my children and expose their bodies to!

After seeing many different specialists and experts of the field, it wasn’t until I took my daughter’s wellness into my own hands that I got the answers I knew were there.

With a Bachelor of Science, a deep respect for the intelligence of the human body and an innate passion for personal growth and development, I founded Kate Barnes Health Coaching and

I believe it is possible to turn back the rise of chronic illness and give back to our kids the happy and healthy future they are entitled to.

How is the program structured?

Each week I host a live webinar (class) that you will listen into from your home computer or phone.  Details of the call will be emailed to you, allowing you to login to the call at the scheduled time.  You will be able to ask and discuss questions on the webinar.

Your membership site contains all of the resources that correspond directly to the Module of work for each week.   Each person has access to a private Facebook group that’s dedicated to the course and is an invaluable source of support, community and additional resources.

I’d love to do the course but don’t have time.

As a busy Mum I know how hard it is to find time to do what we love and want to do. OHC is designed for busy, time poor mums.  Every class in OHC is recorded.  It’s available for you to do whenever or wherever you can. Plus pay for the course once and then it’s available to you for – a lifetime.  

What if I cannot join the live calls at the scheduled time?

All calls are recorded and will be available for you to listen to and download from the members site.

You will be able to submit questions, situations or challenges before the call so I can provide you with specific, 1:1 support even if you can’t attend live.

Do I have to be in Australia to join?

No, this program is primarily based online so anyone from around the world can join!

How much time to I need to commit to it?

1 hour a week.  In addition to this perhaps another hour or two to connect with your face book community and go through the resources provided.  It’s up to you and what you have time for.  Once you sign up the materials are available to you forever – you can refer to them at anytime, anywhere.  

Do I need to be a good cook?

No. I’m not a good cook.  My recipes are recipes that I like to cook and my family enjoys.  They are simple to make, using few ingredients that are loaded with delicious nutrients that our bodies must have for good health.  You really just need a kitchen (and motivation, which I’ll be giving you plenty of)!

What if I don’t have the ingredients?

No worries.  In our first class I provide a comprehensive shopping list along with loads of different suppliers you can contact for deliveries if need be.

My kids are already healthy.  Should I do it anyway?

Absolutely.  If you have any interest in providing your kids and family with the healthiest and happiest future, this is for you.   OHC is a holistic program, drawing on the latest research for parenting, nutrition, lifestyle and modern day problems. Our kids are in a health crisis!   The foundations of health that I share will help set you and your family up for LIFE – you will GAIN a deep knowledge of the choices you need to make and will be making them without even thinking twice.
