Why Work With Me?
The majority of my clients are smart professional women with incredible gifts and a beautiful heart. But they are lost, either in their work or their relationships and they don’t know what to do. For many of them coming to me is a bit of a stretch as they feel they should be able to figure out what’s wrong on their own. Usually a friend who knows my work recommends me and this gives them the extra burst of courage they need to send me an email or give me a call to ask for help.
However, I know that there are quite a few women out there who don’t have that friend who knows me. So I asked some of my clients if they were your friend and if they knew you were struggling, what might they say to you? This is what they said:
“When it comes to problem solving I am generally logical, analytical and very well reasoned…but I was struggling…with my thoughts, my ideas, and questions going around and around in my head…what should I do next? Where should I go? I wanted to change aspects of my life but did not know how or where to even start and was feeling very stuck and afraid of making mistakes or wrong choices. I needed help, someone to help me see the wood from the trees, and that is what going to Catherine did for me.The best way I can describe my experience with Catherine is like a jigsaw. I went in with the many muddles pieces, I came out knowing the pieces to discard, the pieces to work on and even the pieces I didn’t realise I had. I had a clear picture, a focus!It is still up to me to go about making the jigsaw but the practical outlook and fantastic insight that I received from Catherine has not only helped me focus my attentions towards my goals and strengths but it has given me that starting place I struggled to find…the first steps to take towards achieving the change I want” Louise, Chartered Accountant
“I sought a reading from Catherine as I was tired (in every sense.) I felt like I was wasting opportunities and sabotaging myself at every opportunity. Ambitions for more sleep, exercise, healthy living and inner calm simply didn’t materialise and I felt stuck with my foot on the accelerator going nowhere good.A friend recommended Catherine saying that she was warm and insightful and gave her clarity and perspective.Speaking to Catherine was like talking to an old friend. There was nothing I felt unable to raise and she managed to be straight talking, empathetic and funny to boot!She didn’t seek to wave a magic wand to make everything right, but rather made me look at myself in a different way and encouraged me to accept and develop the shift in perspective. I felt happy and hopeful at the end of our call.” Jackie, Lawyer
“I decided to talk to Catherine during a time in my life where I was utterly confused about my life’s purpose and my ongoing hurt and lack of understanding from a romantic relationship that affected me greatly.
Catherine’s easiness, lack of judgment and clear communication spoke to me on a level that no one else has been able to penetrate. She helped me understand why I felt the way I did, and steps to take in order for me to get where I want to go. She doesn’t impose her opinions, she simply gives you the language you know deep inside but are unable to extricate.
Catherine feels like an old friend that knows you better than you know yourself. She gave me the clarity and understanding that I needed in order to feel “unstuck” and move confidently in the direction I wanted to go in. I know my experience is not exclusive and I would encourage anyone who is seeking some sort of clarity to sit down with this old friend.” Sara
As I sat with Catherine and shared all the “hat’s” I wore in my life it all felt very out of control and chaotic, during the reading I could feel the strands of my life all untangling and lining up in front of me to make a stunning tapestry. I had initially been very excited about the reading then a couple of days beforehand questioning did I really want to spend my money in this way, was is going to be worth it? I went in a little resistant and after the first 30 seconds KNEW I was in the right place at the right time. I left with such clarity and new found sense of excitement and direction in my life which is still with me ! Worth every penny! Deb Davis, Ireland
Sacred Cave Sessions
“When I’m feeling confused or overwhelmed by the stuff life is throwing me, and the usual tactics and coping mechanisms don’t quite seem to fit the size of shape of the challenge I’m confronted with, I turn to Catherine. She doesn’t give advice, but helps guide me to listen to my own inner voice and wisdom. Then we create a plan on what to do, based on my own advice to myself – so far this has been actions such as dance, or eat more green vegetables, or spend time chilling out in nature. It’s not only the actual session itself that helps me, and having someone to turn to when I need a little extra support, but putting into practice the ‘homework’ to help me to take care of myself better. I’ve been working with Catherine for some years now. Since my dream career and dream marriage seemed like a speck on a distant horizon. But now I have a job I adore, great friendships and relationships with my family, and am married to a man I am passionate about and contented with.
I count my blessings, and Catherine is among them, as she’s helped me find the courage to bounce back from difficult situations and move on in my life, especially my career. She has also been important to me and my husband as she helped prepare me for getting married and was our celebrant on the day we got married. She was instrumental in one of the most meaningful and gorgeous moments in my life. This is just my story and I can’t say what will work for you, but Catherine is an awesome person, kind, and wickedly funny – so if you’re considering some life coaching and Catherine’s approach resonates with you then I wholeheartedly recommend you give her a try.” Christine, Deputy Editor, Greenpeace Energydesk
