“Everything you take in, from the food you eat to the content you absorb, ultimately informs who you are. The September Project is a vehicle to help you reclaim your health using education, guidance, tools, resources, support and encouragement.”
– The September Project Founder and Integrative Health Coach, Kate Sherriff
My name is Kate Sherriff, and I am a certified Integrative Holistic Health Coach. I attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition School in NYC, the largest nutrition school in the world. Having deeply transformed my own body and life, I now specialise in helping people achieve optimum health levels through cleansing and nutrition.
After being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in year 2013, I decided to commit to both the physical and mental aspects of healing and recovery. Wellbeing became a massive part of the healing process, including the food I put into my body. When I began juicing, eating more whole foods, and adopted a plant-based diet, paired with managing my stress through the likes of energy healing, talk therapy, yoga, and reiki – I began to heal!
My goal is to help those living with chronic illness, fight disease, and heal the body, and help others live cancer and disease-free.
I believe you are your own health expert, we have just lost touch with being confident in the wellness-based decisions we make. I don’t tell my clients what to do, I teach them what to do. I believe in opening my clients up to their own instincts and abilities, so they can function independently and confidently. I believe in nourishment made simple.
What is a Health Coach?
Conventional Doctors often lack the time and resources to help patients achieve their wellness goals, which means Health Coaches fill a vital void in the current healthcare model. A good Health Coach will address all facets of wellness in addition to diet, relationships, career, physical activity, and spirituality, using a holistic approach to help clients discover the lifestyle that makes them feel their best.
Preventive care is my passion and the future!
As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I am a wellness authority and supportive mentor, there to help you make the shift towards healthier habits. Whether your goal is losing weight, improving digestion, reducing stress, or boosting energy, I will support you to develop sustainable lifestyle changes.
Why do you need a Health Coach?
We’re living in such a fast-paced world that feeling stressed is the daily norm. Add a constant barrage of confusing, controversial information, peddled by profiteering marketing companies, and nutrition becomes a very tricky science to navigate.
As a result, rates of preventable chronic illnesses are skyrocketing around the globe and Integrative Nutrition Health Coaches are best placed to combat this and make a real difference in fighting this global health crisis.
We all know to eat more veggies and lay off the chocolate, lollies and alcohol but why do we continue to reach for the ‘stuff’ we know we shouldn’t? And what about everything else?
How much fat is Ok? What about natural sugars? Bread? Supplements? Paleo? Ketogenic?
As a professional Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I have an abundance of reliable science-backed resources to provide you with the best, most up-to-date knowledge available at the time. I am here to help you navigate and most importantly understand, why you do what you do, when you already ‘know’ what you know.

Success Call Consultation
The initial Success Call Consultation involves a one hour detailed discussion about your lifestyle, medical history, any diagnosed medical conditions and a review of any medications or supplements. Included in this hour is a full comprehensive diet analysis and evaluation.
Simply put, we will take a deep dive into understanding and identifying your current state of health. Following your consultation – using the latest state of the art functional pathology testing and other diagnostic techniques – we will tailor a holistic treatment to suit your specific health goals, focussed on prevention through nutrition, diet, lifestyle advice and exercise; and prescribed combinations of botanical medicines, nutritional supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs and stress-management techniques.
Extensive Functional Testing
The September Project provides a selection of exclusive integrative laboratory tests
in conjunction with our existing health protocols to support and analyze our patient’s nutritional requirements. We specialise in tests that are designed to assist our patients in identifying the underlying cause of illness, as well as providing tools for the prevention of disease and premature aging.
We are proactively involved in providing a wide array of services and testing to our customers. With over 100 comprehensive tests available, they fall under the following main categories.
We provide functional screening tests for:
- NutriPATH (Gut + Microbiome)
- DUTCH Test (Hormone Profiling – Female & Male)
- Fitgenes (DNA Testing)
- Adrenal Fatigue Testing
- Saliva Cortisol (Stress and Neurotransmitter Profiling)
- Alcat Testing (Allergy/Food Sensitivities Testing)
- Macro & Micronutrient Deficiencies or Excesses.
Assessments investigate endocrine, gastrointestinal, immunological, metabolic, and nutritional balance.
After you have booked in for your consultation, our Integrative Nutrition Coach will discuss test selection, interpretation, and treatment considerations.
