She has produced and presented numerous documentaries, including for the BBC’s flagship current affairs programme, ‘Panorama’. She has reported from the frontlines in Iraq and Afghanistan, covered the glitz and glamour of the Oscars in Hollywood, as well as stepped out beneath the glitter ball herself as a contestant on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

Her academic roots are in child development, with a BSc in Psychology; she has worked for more than a decade in children’s mental health, ultimately retraining as a children’s counsellor with the children’s mental health charity, Place2Be. Philanthropically, for many years she has supported charities like the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, The NHS Maudsley Foundation Trust, as well as the NSPCC and their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Royal Foundation.
Her passion is to share what she has learned with as many parents as she can, to help them to have the parenting experience they have always hoped to have, and for their children to have the parenting experience they deserve.
Kate is also highly-experienced in working with corporates delivering engaging, warm and inspirational talks and Q&A’s to employees as well as Boards/Executive Teams.
