Client Testimonials

E.W Coach

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.

Thrive in Life Coaching Client


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.

I loved the resourcing practice at the beginning of each call as well as how we were encouraged to check in with ourselves and our body and to give it what it needed as we went through the course material. This provided a very integrated approach to learning. The trauma first aid piece was really beneficial to learn about and is something I’ve been bringing to my work in supporting my clients with regulating their nervous system.

I feel much more prepared and confident to navigate trauma showing up with my clients since completing the course. I feel like I have a good tool kit to draw from to better support my clients when the imprint presents itself.

My clients are now receiving a practitioner who is more attuned to both their own nervous system and theirs as well as an awareness of what they need in order to feel as safe as possible during a session.

Jem Ayres – Orgasmic Embodiment Coach

Catherine’s work makes me realise all those subtle places in the body that I hold trauma, which I hadn’t previously recognised, and how trauma runs my decision making.

I’m now aware the place I make decisions from within my life; my money, my relationships, my business development and my client sessions.

My clients benefit not only from the practices that Catherines teaches me, but also they are getting a healthier and more resourced practitioner who is able to give from a full place of integrity and alignment.

My business as a whole benefits because I’m working from a place of desire and choice, instead of lack and fear.

Trauma Awareness Training Participant

Nikki Chambers – Creator of Moon Sisters

‘I feel my professional capacity to make sure my women’s groups are a trauma informed space has definitely INCREASED.’

 The calls were great – I really enjoyed the ones I attended live, both the timing and length were good for me. I was super grateful for recordings because I could pause it, take notes, listen again….really valuable thank you!

Red Willow – Holistic Health and Eating Coach

‘Catherine has created something very VALUABLE here, and delivers it in a way that is gentle and easy to digest.’

So many courses teach just techniques relating to the subject matter, and stoke the excitement of helping people, yet miss out the vitally important part – relating to the client in their suffering.

Catherine embodies the concepts she teaches which helps with integration of the material. As I make the move into coaching, this short course with Catherine has given me the confidence to work with clients on a one to one basis.

‘I felt the love and care right from the beginning’

The slowness, spaciousness, and permission to what it was feeling and experiencing was DEEPLY HEALING.

I am much more aware of my old habits and tendencies that usually end up in burnout and overwhelm, not only am I more aware of them but I am now able to take the steps needed to ensure that I fill my cup more regularly than ever before leading to greater balance and harmony in my life.

I have also expanded my capacity to self-regulate thereby enjoying more ease in my relationships as well as a softer, less stressful and more gentle way of life.

I felt very SUPPORTED all the way through and  it was such a nourishing and healing journey where I was given the tenderness, space, presence and honouring I needed to really feel into the depths of my pain.

I look back over how far I’ve come these last few months of journeying together and feel waves of GRATITUDE for what a transformative and empowering experience it was!

Thrive in Life Coaching Client

Shivani Ottaway – Marketing Coach

‘Catherine is very generous with her experience and knowledge. She holds a safe space to delve into these topics all from a place of invitation and choice.’

Before the course I didn’t know what it meant to be trauma informed – I used to override or shut my feelings down.

Now it has given me a deeper understanding of the subtleties and nuances of what trauma is and how it shows up in my nervous system. Understanding trauma at this level has allowed me to be more compassionate with my feelings and explore new methods of regulating.

As a marketing coach I now see trauma in my clients can often take the form of overwhelm, shame of being seen, resistance and avoidance. Practicing what I’ve learned from this course I now have tools to support my clients in a trauma informed way to provide safety through structure, choice and ease.

I am very GRATEFUL to this work for the understanding and compassion it has given me for myself and my clients and the ongoing practice and healing it provides.
