Value: Priceless
45 Minute Private Consultation Is $44
I initially offered these consultations for free and when I decided to make them paid, I noticed that I had held exactly 222 of them! That's over 167 hours of conversations that have left me feeling incredibly inspired to show up for you in all the ways I do today.
I now understand that I need to deal with the emotional side of vaginismus before the physical
I decided it was time and when I saw on Instagram that you had a last minute slot for a consultation, I knew that I just had to go ahead and book it despite feeling scared.
I found it really comforting finally talking to someone who has walked in my shoes.
I was anxious beforehand (sweating, heart beating) but soon relaxed as you are completely non judgemental, kind and positive and you just have so much knowledge.

Talking during our consultation was the beginning of a shift for me
I’m on to the biggest dilator of the original set I bought which is one of the hard plastic ones so not the easiest. I know I’ve a way to go with this one but I never thought I’d get there and have to say am really loving the self care routines I’ve carved through dilating. 

I can feel the overall impact on my anxiety levels and just feel like I’m listening to myself and my body more - giving it what it needs and most importantly learning to slow down. 

I have progressed so much in the last weeks
It’s like my mind made a 180 degree turn.

From not being able to even look at my vulva, I am now at dilator 2 and I can touch my vulva from all angles without fear!

Also I managed inserting my full finger which is such a big deal.

I wish I would have reached out sooner
I felt so relieved that someone understood exactly what I was going through! Katrin was so kind, honest and loving! She made me realize that I can conquer this condition and that I will. 

I am so excited to see my progress within the next 4 months during our 1-on-1 journey! 

I hope that others experiencing vaginismus will be able to push through the walls they have built and seek out the support they need. Don’t wait 3 years like I did.

If you have not booked a consultation with Katrin, please do
The morning of our chat I was so anxious, I thought, should I just cancel? Am I going to sound silly? What will she think of my story? I had NEVER told ANYONE about vaginismus about how I was feeling on the inside, what was going on in my head for the past 20+ years. I had a few tears... then I received an email from Katrin saying, “10 minutes till our chat Stacey, looking forward to hearing your story” so I took a deep breath, made a coffee and clicked on the link…
 
From the moment our chat started, I felt calm and safe.

Katrin started with a breathing exercise that really set the tone for an open conversation that started my journey to putting vaginismus in my past. I am about to start 1-on-1 coaching and could not be happier with my decision. I celebrated by dancing quite a few times that day!!

I am not broken and I now have the tools to work through vaginismus
I have been struggling with vaginismus now for over two years. 

​​Originally, I did not know that this was what it was. I did not have a name for it and I kind of just felt helpless. This year I decided to get to the bottom of it. I was taken for test after test, and sent on a whirlwind of medical diagnoses. Finally, I was sent to an OBGYN who diagnosed me properly with vaginismus. Before booking my consultation I felt lost, like I had reached a dead end. I had almost accepted that painful sex was all that there was for me and I was just going to have to learn how to live with it. 

I was able to drop into my body and feel love and compassion for myself and my journey
I noticed when I was speaking with you that I was able to drop into my body and feel love and compassion for myself and my journey. I also realized how NOT alone and NOT unique I am in this... which is such a relief. Your voice, wisdom, listening and reflection allowed me to feel safe and trusting. 

I wish for others struggling with vaginismus to DEFINITELY reach out for help, especially when you feel despair, hopeless, stuck and at war. There is the right support out there and there is no reason to give up! Especially with someone like Katrin who is so loving, compassionate, genuine, caring, and relatable. 

The way we spoke was like we already knew each other
Of course it's still the beginning for me and I am struggling with a lot of mixed feelings this year, from self awareness to a sensation of fear, fear of not being able to feel better but also fear of the pain. I am proud I am handling it and since I opened myself with my therapist, my friends and even with you, I feel so much better and more relaxed. 

From this point of view internet really can help us, finding in your page stories like yours or also other pages related to vaginismus really help me: in the past year I used to feel like I was an "alien", that something was wrong with me, but now I know I am not wrong, I am just human!!

This was exactly what I needed to put me back on track
There was absolutely no judgement or pressure whatsoever and I can only think of positive things that came out of it. Katrin was full of great tips and advice for me to make new progress and definitely helped me see more clearly what should be my next steps.

I am on my way to getting pelvic physiotherapy treatment and now have new ideas for things to try!

Katrin also made me realise some of the strengths I have such as the awareness of my own pelvic floor muscles and my perseverance. I also now understand that patience is key and there are other ways to enjoy myself. I am happy to make slow but long lasting progress rather than trying to rush anything that might just be counterproductive!

I would definitely recommend anyone with vaginismus to reach out to chat. You have nothing to lose and I can assure you that you will learn things at whatever stage you are in this journey.

We felt understood. We felt empowered. We felt hope. 
We knew we had come to the right place. We immediately set up an initial consultation with Katrin and we are so glad we did. She is patient, empathetic, extremely knowledgeable, and kind. And she’s been where I've been. All of the things that are needed to have the right coach and mentor through such an intimate and challenging process. 

She listened carefully and provided much valuable knowledge. She educated us on ways to make the things we were already implementing be the most effective and introduced us to new activities and techniques that we’d never even heard of. 

She was never pushy. 

We felt understood. We felt empowered. We felt hope. 

We are looking forward to putting into practice everything she suggested and to continuing to work with her on this journey toward total recovery. 

It's about embracing myself and loving my own body
I started reading material about vaginismus from your website and email subscription and trying to dilate on my own. However, I hit a plateau in my dilating, where I wasn't making much progress. I decided to book a consultation because I was feeling desperate and alone in my journey. 

You not only helped answer specific questions I had about my situation, but also listened with so much empathy. 

Honestly, being able to share my story with someone and receive empathy in return was in some ways emotionally healing for me - it helped me extend empathy toward myself. 

I felt immediately at ease in speaking with Katrin - she was a calming presence and had a wealth of knowledge that she shared generously
I wish that those experiencing vaginismus find connection to a healing support system that is educated and prepared to assist them. There's no one way to healing for anyone and the more providers we can have aware of these issues, the more tools and support we can cultivate for those that are struggling. 

I would recommend that anyone struggling with vaginismus reach out to Katrin to connect and find support within the beautiful online community she has created. 

Women like you make me feel less alone with this
I really enjoyed our chat, it was great to connect with you 1-on-1.

Thank you so much for your time, it really uplifted me and gave me more hope on my own journey going forward. The meditation at the beginning was a lovely way to start, I found it easy to share parts of my story with you and you were easy to talk to, very warm, empathetic and non-judgmental.

I felt seen and heard
After having been diagnosed with lichen sclerosus as well as vaginismus, I started using dilators and found Katrin’s explanation of the emotional healing journey and visioning a life free of pain so helpful and in alignment with my vision and own healing processes. 

I am still on the journey but I can honestly say Katrin has been absolutely amazing help and was wonderful to talk to in our one on one conversation

I loved the chat and also the positive energy I got during it
I have been in a relationship for about 5 years and experienced pain during intercourse after around 6 months to 1 year into it. 

I immediately consulted my gynaecologist but everyone just said it's an STD or some kind of infection. They even lasered my vagina but it did just get worse. It took them 3 years to finally even consider the diagnosis of vaginismus and vulvodynia. I am so relieved that I found this community and am able to talk about my problem.

I came away feeling refreshed and re-inspired
I started subscribing to Katrin’s emails a few months ago, but each time I’d seen her amazing invitation to set up a free 1-on-1 conversation with her, I’d not quite had the courage or headspace to take her up on the offer.

One of my goals for 2022 was to finally do so - and I’m so glad that I did. Our conversation was so friendly, warm and reassuring.
