Compassion Poetry is a safe and soft place to explore life, love and work with bipolar. I write essays and poetry, appear as a podcast guest, deliver workshops and presentations, share my thoughts with subscribers on Substack and sell heartfelt sympathy cards.

I started Compassion Poetry to articulate the pain, hope and healing of life’s challenges on the page. My hope in sharing my self-compassion with you is that you can show more compassion towards yourself and, in turn, show more compassion to the world.

My name is Kylie, I am an IVF mum of two young boys and am the owner of Thomas Online - a toy shop with all your kids' favourite characters and brands.

My 7 year old is also named Thomas! He was named wayyy (okay a year before) before Thomas the Business came along, but it’s pretty cool the way it all worked out.

We moved from the big smoke to the winterless north when Tommy was a baby, and it was the best decision we ever made! I get to stay at home with our boys, while also owning this exciting business to keep my brain in the working world.

Hey there, I’m Corinne Austin - aka the Happy Body Coach. 


I’ve been in the Health & Fitness industry for 20yrs, and after initially qualifying as a Personal Trainer, I soon realised there were sooo many other aspects to helping clients be healthy and happy.  So the geeky detective side of me has delved into many other pathways including Myofascial Theory & Release, Lymphatic Stimulation, Visceral Mobilisation & Bodywork, and Functional Medicine to help me understand a more comprehensive approach to a healthy and happy human existence.  I now wear multiple hats in the work that I do, and work both in person and online with clients to help them achieve the new level of happy they are seeking.


From Autoimmune Disease, to chronic pain, from menstrual irregularities to recurring infections, from bowel issues to chronic fatigue – and everything in between – I work with clients to help them understand their body, their symptomatic presentation and its root causes, and then we plot a plan to help them reverse engineer the pathways that have lead them to their current existence, so that together we can find a whole new experience of a healthy and happy body.


I’d love to work with you!  Many clients call it ‘magic’, and I’d love to work my own form of magic with you xx
