Thanks so much for our session the other day, I feel like it has really opened a door for me and enabled me to give myself permission to experiment without feeling that I shouldn't and to see my shame for what it is. I have been pleasuring myself daily since, and it has been quite revelatory! It has just kept getting more enjoyable as I have grown in confidence and tuned in to my body more. It is really wonderful to find that I can actually have a sex life (rather than just a wank life!) without the need for another person - it's very liberating and exciting. The experiences have actually started to feel loving.
I got so much more than I wanted from the retreat. The Wheel of Consent felt really relevant to all aspects of my life and seeing sex as non goal orientated was significant. Learning about consent through interactive touch and being able to talk through things that had happened the evening before was really helpful. I learned a lot about sexual anatomy and ways to touch.
I gained so many valuable insight from our time with you. They have allowed me to see much more clearly what is going wrong and right in my interactions with my husband and i think this could transform our relationship both in and out of the bedroom.
I didn't know what to expect from the couples retreat but I have gained a lot over the last few days. Learning about the Wheel of Consent feels like a very significant movement in my life and I can see how important this will be in both my work and homes lives. The accommodation was lovely and provided a safe and secure place for us to feel relaxed in and the food was delicious!
Throughout the retreat the space was so perfectly attuned to my needs that it was difficult to see who led and who responded as the programme unfolded. No matter where I moved in my process, I felt deeply held in a place where nothing was too much and Catherine and her team brought such generosity and depth and richness and wisdom.
In the Conscious touch workshop I gained a desire to treat myself better and to make more positive and healthy choices – including a new relationship with my ‘yes’ and ‘no’ and also a desire and confidence to go further and deeper. The way Catherine held space and guided us was fantastic!
Im so grateful for our session today I had no idea how backed up I had become by ignoring my sexual energy and sexuality. Thank you for literally awakening me. I also wanted to thank you for your professionalism, energy, patience and approach.
Thank you Catherine. I want to acknowledge how impressive you were at the weekend. I have done a lot of workshops and have worked with some truly excellent facilitators – as well as some not so good ones. You really do have a gift in holding the space and feeling into where the group is. I hope our paths cross again as I’d love to work more with you!
The most powerful part of the day for me was the last bit when I felt that I was someone else and I was in deep connection with them. I felt very emotional when I hugged one of the other women, it was really a watershed moment for me and so I really want to thank the other woman for being in that moment with me and sharing an unwavering commitment to that unfolding!
As a mature woman I had been in a sexless marriage, which in every sense had been very frustrating, and as a consequence I had not felt very confident around my sexuality. Having met Catherine I completely trusted her to share my experience that I would love to find my G spot!! She held a very sacred safe space with me and a small group of women to explore our own G spots it was not only a very profound personal experience she was able to make it fun for us and not at all embarrassing. This whole experience gave me the confidence to ask my lover to explore my sexuality and G spot further and we continue to have amazing love making together. Thank you darling Catherine for the incredible work you do with such love and compassion.
I just want to thank you for the beautiful day on the Anatomy of Female Arousal workshop and for creating a safe space for our exploration. I feel blessed to have experienced the depth of wisdom and healing our Pussy’s have. I feel so honoured to have held space for these women in what I feel is a sacred moment that I will always honour and never forget, and in the witnessing of such beauty and courage of the Divine Feminine. I will always honour my sacred pussy and do my utmost to give her daily attention.
In my session with Catherine, magic happened. I got to experience myself as an energetic being. I felt energy moving inside my body, generating in one place and moving to another. It was wonderful to experience how life force is not some kind of mystical thing out there, rather what was living inside me; what I was made of. I got to connect with my body at a very deep level and I felt self-love and pure joy.
Catherine created a safe and sacred atmosphere in which I felt held and supported enough to explore feelings that I did not know that were there. I could not have done that without her presence.
I have to confess I was a little worried I may be disappointed with the session, since I have tried so many things in the past that were costly and not worthy or not effective in bringing about real and lasting transformation.
Yet this time, not only was I thrilled that I ‘found you’ on my own terms (not through friends or acquaintances) which made me feel that I do know how to guide myself alone (empowering) and also due to the fact that I really deeply appreciate your seriousness (yet lightness) and gentleness in the way you do your work.
The boundaries work has brought so much clarity, I can feel the impact on all areas of my life already starting to happen.Thank you from my heart for this You are truly amazing.
How I found My Way Home.
The time had come for me to turn and face myself. The space provided on this week long retreat has enabled me to do just that and to dive deep into my being and to stay in that depth exploring, discovering, remembering, healing and transforming.
I felt totally welcomed throughout the retreat from my preparation, through my arrival, through each day, through the retreat ending and through the integration process afterwards.. At all times there was so much care and attention to every detail.
Throughout the retreat the space was so perfectly attuned to my need that it was difficult to see who led and who responded as the programme unfolded. No matter where I moved in my process, I felt deeply held in a place where nothing was too much and Catherine and her team brought such generosity and depth and richness and wisdom. Catherine, her team and the space they created were steeped in tenderness, encouragement and invitation. All elements of my being felt deeply supported and nurtured including the physical environment of the beautiful workspace and accommodation and food.
I felt heard with everything I brought to the retreat – every word, every movement, every gesture, every piece of my story – all deeply listened to and woven into the process of my intensive. I discovered how to witness my life in a whole new way and my being felt so witnessed throughout the intensive. The guides and the space they created for me was filled with insights and profound experience and transformation.
Previously, I have experienced a variety of other personal development programmes which worked at depth, but I have never been able to reach such personal depth and to be held at every level of my being – physically, emotionally, my thinking and spiritually. Never before, have I left a programme so richly resourced and empowered to support my being going forward.
This retreat is life changing and it continues to support my changing life. It was as if my being was made of blotting paper throughout the retreat. I felt so safe and held and so I could totally open up and absorb my experiences and deepen into my wise being and into the mystery.
Catherine and her team shared so generously of themselves and their home I felt at ease. The space I encountered was open, trusting, generous, abundant and sacred. This intensive experience has brought my being to life in a way that I would never have imagined. I found my way home and I now have a deep sense of clarity, peace and the freedom to make choices about my life going forward…
I will forever be grateful to all that I experienced on this retreat. I emerged, resourced, deeply healed and able to really see the bigger story of my life in the past, present and future possibility. I would describe this retreat as unique and I believe that, going forward, my life cannot and will not ever be the same again… THANK YOU!
I don’t meet many teachers like Catherine and Elaine, I was really pleasantly surprised in the way they held space. I highly recommend them and the energy orgasm workshop!
The energy orgasm workshop was liberating it took me to an expanded experience of pleasure as I could release blocks that were stopping me getting in touch with my energetic body.
I discovered a new and deeply embodied way to express myself and take responsibility for my own thoughts, feelings and pleasure. I’d recommend Catherine’s work to anyone open to explore her/his/their body. She’s kind, professional, well prepared and genuine.
You may not know there was something missing in your life until you’ve done the energy orgasm workshop. Its life changing. Love, connection, unity at its very best! It was a mind- body and energy blowing glimpse into what I know deep inside us about pleasure, and the connection between sex and spirit. If you feel called to attend the energy orgasm workshop I encourage you not to put it off any longer!
The entire retreat was hugely valuable and transformational for me. It came at just the right time and was exactly what I needed. It was so good just to be able to talk at length with two people who are so understanding and wise and who are prepared to invest so much of themselves in helping me deal with my issues; and also who create the environment where I felt able to face up to these issues and accept that help. Which, given where I started from, is no mean feat! Also, both of your words of encouragement and acknowledgement of the progress I have made mean a tremendous amount to me.
I gained more freedom about my sexuality and my body in the energy orgasm workshop and I found I could go deeper than before.
I have gained the ability to feel again. I have never been connected with my heart and now I feel amazing: open energised, excited and alive!
I’m brand new to the Tantra/energy healing work so it was a bit of a jump in the deep end- but well worth it! This was a great opportunity to work and release grief in a physical body way, and after the session I experienced a greater sense of freedom and self-love,
The energy orgasm workshop is such a transformative experience. Reconnecting with the energy body has allowed me to tap into a world that goes unnoticed and unfelt by the majority of us most of our lives due to our modern lifestyle. I’m now connected to the world of feeling.
I loved the introduction to boundaries exercises and feel it was important part of the workshop, it enabled us to create a safe and respected space.
The energy orgasm workshop has brought me and my partner closer together. I am amazed how much intimacy was created in such a short time! The best part of it was the depth of authentic understanding, knowledge and care, thank you!
Catherine created a safe, supportive, boundaried space. I like that she just allowed.
In the womb workshop I was reminded that I can trust my female sisters to support me in this work, that was such a significant piece for me as exploring my wound from the betrayal of the feminine has been a big part of my healing journey recently.
The workshop was an amazing experiential self-learning about a part of my essence I had previously felt unable to meet, around beauty and love. I experienced heart opening and a positive channeling of my sexual energies. I felt empowered to move energy through my body alone and with others. Also during the weekends workshop I gained a growing confidence to meet and be seen in my vulnerability, and in doing so to connect with and open my heart. Allowing myself to be seen, be safe and loved was very healing.
I gained more confidence in the way that I’m working with myself and with partners. I learned to work with my boundaries both in my emotional expression, and the parts of myself I can bring to a group environment. Sex has always been a very private hidden thing for me so this was amazing.
I arrived feeling shame about being in a group of women talking about sex, but Catherine's gentle and inclusive manner enabled me to relax into being with the other women. I enjoyed Catherine’s knowledge and wisdom, i can see how much i didn't know about my own body, shocking really!
Catherine held the space really well. I felt very safe to explore without judgement. It was fun, not too serious whilst being to the point! A developed a deeper connection to my yoni which I feel I have often closed off. I got confirmation to slow down and to start listening to the whispers of my body. Thank you!!!
I gained deeper healing of my heart and touching my wounds and blessings. I saw my sweetness, my tenderness, and my spiritual sensuality. I released more shame, blocks and suffering and now there is space inside for my beautiful girl/woman to grow. Catherine has a deep understanding about female sexuality. I was nervous about the workshop but I soon felt safe and comfortable as Catherine held a gentle and understanding space. I gained sisterhood and extra understanding of my yoni. Thank you!!
My experience of working with Catherine was a very happy one and in the workshop I gained a sense of friendship and community.I gained peace, new insight and affirmation from the workshop.
I realised I am more connected to my womb than I previously thought and also feeling more connection breathing from my heart to my yoni. I enjoyed the womb mandala and will do that again.
I felt uncomfortable at first but Catherine made me feel at ease and supported me to open up and be myself. After the womb workshop I felt empowered and more connected with my body!
In the womb medicine workshop I reconnected with my spiritual being. I found my womb is a place of many emotions and those can change and respond.
I recently worked with Catherine and found her keen intuition and equanimity a wonderful aid for the work that we did together; Catherine made the uncomfortable bearable and her lovely calm way helped create an ambience of trust and openness.
The professionalism, hard work and follow up that she put in only helped me in my journey and i thoroughly enjoyed working with Catherine and would highly recommend her; she is a knowledgeable practitioner, insightful and someone who practices what she preaches.
I feel lighter and my body is tingling from head to toe. I’ve gained a deeper understanding of behaviours I use with my partner that I can now be conscious of.
Working with you was excellent, I like your clarity and great facilitation skills.
I feel I know my body much better and am more confident to explore further. I feel connected with my sisters, deepening my knowing we are all the same.
Catherine is a very intuitive and professional therapist. We shared a very healing session. I was helped to release a lot of buried resentment and pain. This has allowed me to love my self more and moved the relationship with my partner to a much more loving and tender place. I’m very happy and feel lucky to have found this support.
I found you to be a wonderful, very clear, kind and loving facilitator
I felt so energised after the session, it felt like a huge weight had been lifted from me. To feel the Love that you radiate showed me what I’ve been missing in my life for years. I want to have this in my life always
I came in here tonight feeling like I couldn’t even close my eyes my head was spinning so much. In just a short time I felt so relaxed and in my ease with you. Thank you for your kindness, compassion and love in the session, you have such gentle way about her which works really well with such a sensitive subject of female sexuality and trauma.
I have seen Catherine in a personal session and experienced her as a workshop facilitator many times. As a teacher and healer, I have found Catherine to hold a deep, steady, clear and strong presence. She clearly has deep passion and commitment for her work and is able translate her knowledge and personal experience in a way that includes, informs and inspires others. In particular her work around educating women of the true nature of their anatomy, capacity for pleasure and finding deeper integration within their being.Within the healing space Catherine engages completely with what she is being presented with, and her approach is slow, deliberate and executed with the utmost care. In my personal session I was able to access difficult aspects which I prefer to hide and find difficult to trust others with. These aspects were not only welcomed by Catherine, they were revered.
Anyone on a journey of greater consciousness would be fortunate to encounter Catherine. I will be attending her sessions for some time to come yet.
In the energetic body orgasm workshop I learned I’m responsible for my own pleasure and I need to get out of my head to get my ego out of the way when giving to someone! Catherine is an open hearted, professional and gentle teacher. I felt safe and would recommend working with Catherine to anyone regardless of gender, age, ability and awareness
While initially apprehensive and nervous about such intimate work, Catherine’s warm and non-judgemental demeanour put me at ease surprisingly quickly. With Catherine’s help, in just a couple of sessions, I was able to release deep mental and physical blocks around sexuality that I have held on to for decades, and which have prevented me from having a truly fulfilling relationship. Catherine has opened me up to a whole new way of relating to sex – as a sacred practice – which is something I had unknowingly been looking for for many years.
Thank you for the session the other night, I felt that I wanted to write something, to anchor the experience.
I have stalked for a long time – through many tantra workshops and sessions – this wounding in my yoni, since she first told me of penetrations happening to her, at a preverbal stage in my life. The healing that we found for this last night was by far the deepest I have experienced.
As we moved to the sacred spot massage, I realised that I had reached a limit to the pleasure I could experience at that point, because somewhere within me was a child’s vagina trapped in a spasm of trauma and pain. To call her in, this child – to feel her pain, to allow it to flow and express through my body, as she was penetrated – was quite revolutionary.
Experiencing wholly through my body what she had experienced, felt like lifting a veil, to finally reveal a truth, that my mind had often times tried to firmly shut the door on. In this total surrender to my inner child’s experience, I was able to wholly scoop her up, to unreservedly see and hold her.
It felt something akin to a soul retrieval, as I called back in this long lost part of the jigsaw of my being.
The final piece you guided me to, was to then reunite the whole constellation of inner masculine, feminine, and child – only this morning it is children, as there is a young girl and for the first time a boy too! The anchoring of this constellation in a gesture, has really helped me return to and wholly integrate the healing of the session.
Your intuition, guidance, holding and presence throughout this process, was by far the most skillful I have received from a Daka / Dakini, and there probably few as yet who can hold space for this depth of healing process, to arise in just a single session. I salute you!
I can for a session around the trauma in my body. I enjoyed working with you very much and loved the space you helped me inhabit. I am fascinated by the feelings that arose within me and the colour sequence was amazing it was light but sent a beautiful ripple through me, I left feeling a sense of peacefulness I've not had for as long as I can remember. This feels like home.
A brief note to offer a heartfelt thank you for welcoming me into your space yesterday. You really are a warm and intuitive being – I hugely appreciated your patience in what was for me a big and somewhat apprehensive step. I have felt incredible shame around my sexuality so to be met and to not feel like I was going to die was a new experience, I can breath a sigh of great relief.
I valued the intention of orgasmic experience being dedicated to a bigger world picture. It fits well and comfortably with my ethics, values to be of service to the world.
