Katie Abbott

Katie's teaching honours both our human and spiritual nature. It is a teaching beyond any form or structure and it's essence lays at the centre of love, presence and connection.

Katie has worked as a Therapist and Coach for over 10 years. Still working with a small group of private clients from her base at 1 Harley St, the heart of her work is now teaching, writing and sharing within groups.

Katie founded Pause Place in 2016.
