Meet Your Hosts
Ros McMaster
&  Cate Shaw

 “Age is nothing. Waking up is everything.” - Maya Angelou

Ros and Cate see themselves as Brisbane's Grace and Frankie. Ros is loud, washes her face with soap, shops at lifeline.  Cate, by contrast, is quietly spoken, always immaculate, favours botox and beauty routines. One newly single, the other in a committed marriage. What they have in common is their desire to keep growing, to not be frightened of aging, but rather excited about what it offers for learning and growth. More importantly, they both want to help you learn and grow at the same time. 

Ros McMaster

Counselor. Author. Inspirational Speaker. Spiritual Healer

Corporate hippy. Sociable introvert.  That’s how my bio reads on dating apps. Yes, I’m ‘there’.  Married for 30yrs, at 54 I found myself navigating the single scene again. Only this time, instead of the exuberance of my lost youth, I was putting myself out there with wrinkles, arthritic hips, and a lifetime of heartache that weighed me down. I also developed a good dose of stage 4 bowel cancer. The universe clearly had plans for me.


These life-changing transitional events gave me an opportunity to use my psychology degree and experience as a counselor to analyze my own life. You might say I unpacked my luggage and got myself a new set - the lightweight variety.  I ended up publishing a self-help memoir about it!

Ros supports individuals those experiencing grief & loss, and those who seek to develop better relationships with themselves. She is also a spiritual healer and psychic medium.
