I am very grateful for the work that I did with Catherine. I came across her during an incredibly difficult time of my life – I had burnt myself out and was subsequently signed off work with anxiety and depression. With Catherine’s support, I was able to make some big decisions about my future which meant getting clear on my purpose in the world and how to most effectively share this. By the end of the 5 months, I had left my job, developed a vision for my own coaching business, and was ready to launch; all whilst ensuring I was continuing to put my body first. I am now living from a place of love, purpose, and authenticity – for the first time in my life.

Working with Catherine gave me the courage to clear away all that was not serving my highest potential. It was not only my business that undertook an overhaul it was the entire way I did relationship.

At the end of the journey with Catherine I’ve got clearer about my direction, I have a stable income, I have cleared away relationships that weren’t reciprocal or didn’t respect my boundaries. Looking forward things feel more manageable, and I am clearer about which conditions I need within my business offerings so that I continue to feel fed and supported.

Catherine’s support was invaluable, respectful, she gave me insights for what I had experienced that felt truly validating and something I had needed for some time, she helped me to see clearly why I felt the way I did, and eventually have the courage to let everything fall away that wasn’t bringing me joy, energy, reciprocity, all the things I wanted and needed.

Working with Catherine, for both for personal and professional reasons, has completely revolutionized how I approach my work, infusing trauma-informed practices into everything including how I manage my business.

I highly recommend Catherine to all my colleagues who work with sexuality and in the healing/coaching space, and also to people needing trauma work that is gentle and self-paced.

This work was LIFE-CHANGING. As a coach moving into work around trauma, I knew I needed to experience what it would be like as a client. I found Catherine through a website that listed many other practitioners, all of whom are excellent, I’m sure. But, I just couldn’t find someone I connected with until I found Catherine’s profile. And I was absolutely right to listen to my intuition. In Catherine, I found not only a skilled coach, I found someone who could validate my experience as a woman in midlife, navigating perimenopause, running a business all while healing from trauma.

Catherine is grounded, calm, and sturdy in the way she can make you feel safe and secure while being the guide for you to heal. After the first session, I felt different. I noticed different thoughts about difficult life events, and it just got better from there.

I cannot recommend doing this work highly enough and I can’t think of a better partner for this work than Catherine.

Having completed the Business Coaching with Catherine I feel a brand new relationship with my business. I’ve moved from being stuck, lost and overwhelmed to being fully present and I see myself as a business owner now, rather than just a practitioner.

Catherine was so generous in what she shared, her knowledge and care. At all times the sessions felt totally focused on the needs of my business and it has completely reformed as a result.

If you genuinely want the best for you, your business, and all that it serves, investing in this programme is an ideal way to meet these needs. Thank you Catherine!

Catherine’s sessions were the antithesis of the big ‘life-changing’ peak experiences I have often sought. They were very gentle and, ironically, provided a much more powerful and lasting transformation. Catherine has an incredible depth of knowledge and expertise about trauma and how to resolve it. Issues I’ve spent years spinning in talk therapy were cleared in just a few sessions. I came away from each session feeling empowered and clear about how to move past long held blocks and patterns. I highly recommend Catherine’s work to create deep and lasting change in every area of life.

The coaching programme has been a very valuable container for me to make important and sustainable changes in my business. Your expert guidance, expertise and tools have helped me to put systems in place that will free up more space and time and I am so glad I could look with you at some of the more challenging subjects like pricing and marketing in a calm, constructive way. I am sure that the work we did will continue to unfold. Thank you Catherine!

It is with a warm heart that I reflect on my second journey through the thrive in life coaching container with Catherine. Once again she held me with immense presence, kindness and care. I felt safe enough to venture into some very painful places and was able to reconnect to parts of myself that had been offline for a long, long time.

I am in awe of the depth of transformation I have witnessed in myself in the time span I have been working with Catherine. Her ability to bring compassion, wisdom and insight to each session to support my healing process and better understand my nervous system is exemplary. I feel more empowered, capable and confident than ever and I’m so excited for the where the journey leads me from here! Thank you again for everything Catherine.

Catherine was able to delicately tweezer out the locked emotions with beautiful skill, diplomacy and accuracy. I was able to delve deeper into areas of trauma during our sessions that helped resolve issues and bring healing to my nervous system. She always created a container of ease and grace, without any judgement.

Throughout my coaching programme, Catherine was a sensitive guide with a rare and subtle wisdom. She brought a spaciousness and a depth of attunement to my somatic process that allowed body intelligence to come through, such that patterns of trauma could be transmuted into states of bliss within our sessions. She held a container for whole self-expression, helping me track and transform my unconscious energy patterns that have previously held me back. Our sessions together were joyful, physically challenging and revelatory.

From the programme I have gained new depths and dimensions of self-awareness, which give me the confidence to be in a relationship again. I can distinguish trauma bonded attachment from healthy attachment, and how to create the conditions for safety with my partner. I now have an embodied map to navigate and breathe / imagine / move beyond my trauma triggers.

I learned practical and creative ways of regulating my state and moving from a history of extreme ups and downs to a stabilising my health and well-being. I now have more capacity to take risks and to thrive in work and play. This is a huge change – to truly dampen the patterns of trauma I’ve inherited, not just for me but for the people around me as well, is no small shift.

I have really enjoyed working with Catherine  – I always felt safe and cared for, and the work we did was at a profound level of creativity, depth and simplicity. Please do this work if you’re considering it, somatic work goes far beyond any psychotherapeutic and coaching work I’ve experienced before.
