I'm Catherine Hale, Let Me Tell You a Little About Myself
I'm an expert nervous system coach, educator and guide for seasoned, change-making, and heart centred people who coach, facilitate, heal and lead.
My core of my work seeks to empower individuals to foster growth and emerge as leaders within a culture that not only comprehends but also reveres the profound ramifications of personal and systemic trauma, as well as the intricacies of neurodivergence. This culture, in its broader scope, enables leaders to respond sensitively and compassionately to the array of different needs, paces, nervous systems and human experiences existing within group containers, whilst embodying and sharing the wisdom and knowledge that allows for their students to create lasting and profound transformation.
My medicine is transformation
Four years ago, I received a human design reading, and I'll never forget the moment when I heard those powerful words: "You're here for transformation." It was like a lightning bolt of insight, resonating deep within me, and it confirmed that I had been living on the path aligned with my soul's true purpose.
Today, I stand before you as a guide, ready to lead you through a profound journey of change. But it's not just any change; it's a transformation that touches every fiber of your being – your heart, body, mind, soul, and even your very nervous system. I'm here to help you find your way back home to your body, to reconnect with the essence of who you are, and to discover the incredible wholeness that resides within you.
We'll re-wild your spirit as you embody your power
You'll learn to step out of internal prisons formed from trauma and instead learn to recognise and live more authentically.
Through my work I address topics shrouded in taboo: healing personal and systemic trauma, reclaiming pleasure based sexuality, and how to navigate the initiation of menopause. I do this by bringing about individual change and supporting collective paradigm shifts through my particular style of coaching, education, and leading conversations which invite new perspectives to root into the soil of our culture
Everything I offer is a reflection of my own personal and professional journey of recovering from sexual trauma, major life initiations and learning to navigate life in a female body.
I wish I could have met someone like me when I started my healing journey
Instead I’ve had a long walk to find the right professional support. I began, as many do with psychotherapy, trying to make sense of how I was feeling, and while I felt understood and supported, both sex and trauma were the elephants in the room. This unspokeness didn’t feel safe enough for me to bring my full self into my healing journey.
So I continued my pursuit and embarked upon a professional psychospiritual psychotherapy training, hoping that both sex and trauma could be held with the deep level of safety I longed for. But again these topics felt taboo so began my quest seeking for a space where sex could be talked about, healed, and even celebrated within a framework that could also hold trauma.
I discovered Tantra
Initially it felt like I'd found the holy grail of healing - I could bring more of myself to the arena, this was a time of sexual transformation and community growth.
Boundaries, consent, and erotic energy, began to be integrated in my being. My sexual shame began to melt away, I felt freer, more connected to my body, and energetic orgasms flowed as I discovered the healing medicine of sexual energy.
I trained in Tantra, Sexual Shamanism, I became a Sexological Body worker.
Over time I recognised my soul was guiding me deeper
I'm a self confessed geek forever curious looking for new ideas and ways to heal - you can read more about my qualifications and experience here. As I began to learn more about trauma I discovered I didn't just have sexual trauma but developmental trauma, complex trauma, and shock trauma too. I was living my life in the easily triggered hell realms of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and what I'd been trying just wasn't helping me find the resolution I so longed for.
I understood that so many of the symptoms I'd lived with for most of my life were a consequence of trauma!
A shift was needed in my healing - I needed to adapt many of my sexuality teachings to resolve my trauma. The high-energy sexuality spaces I was used to were too much for my dysregulated nervous system and I switched them for slow and gentle trauma informed spaces where profound healing took place.
I learned that my needs mattered, that healthy boundaries were essential and that being met with consistent reliable care created experiences where I could feel both connected and safe.
Life began to get a whole lot more fun - there was an emergent sweetness and simplicity as I stepped into my truth loving integrous Queen self.
I studied neuroscience - my book shelves were groaning under the weight - I became a Trauma Release Exercises practitioner (TRE) and trained to be a Trauma Resolution Coach and Guide.

Then menopause arrived like an unexpected visitor.
Leading me into the darkest corners of my soul and revealing the most secret hiding places of the trauma I'd not yet touched. I've been led deep into the bowels of the alchemical fires of menopause - I've been scorched, initiated and transformed beyond what I knew was possible.
Through my healing journey I've discovered myself as woman who doesn't take sh*t, who loves life, who has a deep love and respect for the Earth and is on a mission to re-wild fragmented landscapes in both people and places. I've discovered myself as a business woman running a successful coaching practice, sharing my wise woman medicine and training others to become the trauma informed practitioners of the future.
In the midst of the worst of my PTSD I never would have thought this possible. Not in a million years.
I know what it takes to heal, because I’ve been there.
Since 2012 I’ve worked with hundreds of people supporting them to shift their lives from surviving to thriving. They've claimed back their worthiness, their power, their boundaries, their joy, their pleasure, their innate medicine, their capacity to love and be loved. Their professional lives have transformed, they know themselves as wisdom keepers, and powerful creators of the new emergent paradigm of co-creative living and loving in regenerative ways on planet earth.
Through my Trauma Awareness Training I've had the privilege of equipping countless leaders, coaches, and healers with the tools to elevate their professional standards and embrace a trauma-informed approach in their work so that they too can become builders of a Culture that truly cares.
Every person I support to take one step at a time out of their trauma spell and back into a thriving life is an honour and privilege - I love what I do and feel blessed to be sharing my medicine with the world.
I want to offer you everything I know so you don’t have to search for it for as long as I did!
If I can do it - so can you - I believe in you - we can do it together, I’ll be there right by your side, every step of the way as you take one doable step at a time.
