In today’s episode of This EndoLife podcast, I’m talking to the wonderful Kate McGoey of The Balance Blueprint. I met Kate at one of my first day retreats and was struck by her positive experience of mindfulness for chronic pain and her pursuit to help others with endometriosis experience the same benefits. Kate has endured seven surgeries, extreme pain and other endometriosis symptoms, but several years ago began working with a nutritionist to manage her pain levels. This eventually led her to discover mindfulness for pain, which she now teaches through free guides, online courses and one to one support.
Kate takes us through how chronic pain conditions affect our mental health, emotions and quality of life, why changing our experience of and relationship to pain is so important and how we can learnt to live more positively with endometriosis through mindfulness for pain.
Kate is such a calming and soothing presence with such a wealth of information - it was a complete honour to have her on the show!
