About me

Do you constantly criticise yourself and compare yourself to others?

Do you see yourself as “less than” and “not good enough”?

Do you doubt your abilities? Are you obsessed with being ‘perfect’?

You may probably suffer from low self-esteem and low confidence. They can impact any area of your life and lead to stress, anxiety and burn-out. Here are some of the symptoms:

  • Social withdrawal
  • Anxiety and emotional turmoil
  • Lack of social skills
  • Low expectations for yourself
  • Pessimism
  • Indecisiveness
  • Self-consciousness


Coaching is an effective tool to help you overcome your negative beliefs and self-doubts, build confidence and boost self-esteem, accept and be comfortable with you who you really are.

Coaching is a time-limited process that creates positive change by helping you raise awareness about your true self and your unique skills, talents and abilities, and start to get a clear vision around what you want to achieve in life.

With my help, you will learn how to step out of your comfort zone, silence your inner critic and achieve real transformation. You will improve overall wellbeing, develop healthy habits and - if you are comfortable with practicing mindfulness - you will learn some techniques to relax, avoid rumination and feel calmer and grounded.

I use a practical approach and tailor my coaching on your needs by blending traditional coaching and CBT with mindfulness techniques, so that, during your journey, you'll be supported in reaching your goals using effective tools that will serve you also in the years to come.

In particular, I can help you with:

- Confidence and self-esteem

- Indecisiveness

- Time management and organisation

- Procrastination and perfectionism

- Career choices

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a certified life coach with a background in Law and a long-time experience in the diplomatic sector, in Italy.  That gave me the great opportunity to travel, live in different countries, meet people from any walks of life and experience the challenges and the obstacles that many expats face.

But the moment came when I became aware that something was missing in my life and that what I was doing was not enough to make me feel happy and fulfilled anymore. Coaching helped me discover what I really love to do in my life, that is to connect with people, and start doing it!

I trained in coaching at the Centre for Coaching and City University (London), where I specialised in Coaching with CBT and Coaching for Business. I am also passionate about mindfulness and attended various courses as well as masterclasses in that subject as part of my continuous personal and work development.

I am a member of the Association for Coaching and a Mentor with the Cherie Blair Foundation - Mentoring Women in Business Programme.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

Coaching for expats

Due to my long-term experience in the diplomatic sector, I can help expats deal with the challenges linked to move and settle in another country.

Workshops and seminars

There is growing awareness of the impact wellbeing can have in the workplace. I collaborate with organisations that are committed to ensuring the best possible environment for their workforce, as they are aware that healthy, motivated and informed staff are crucial to the success or the company.

Wellbeing and self-confidence are the topics at the heart of my workshops and seminars.


I offer a prospective client a FREE 30-minutes exploratory meeting to meet and discuss their needs. This is an opportunity to consider whether we make a good match and discuss mutual expectations.

Further information

What my clients say:

"“I wasn’t sure what to expect, I wasn’t sure what exactly it was I wanted but I knew I needed it! During my sessions with Cate she took the time to patiently listen, explore and understand me so that she could support me to design a bespoke plan of action based on my needs.  She helped me find my motivation, find peace with the past and mostly get to know myself.  Thank you, Cate, for your time, professional approach, sincerity, guidance and support.  I found what I needed through life coaching with you!"

Jan Guerin (Nurse) - 51 y.o.

"When I started working with Caterina, I had good control of my life overall. However, I was aware that, to progress in my career, I needed a well-designed plan, especially in the long term. I wanted to achieve a better quality of life and set up effective strategies to obtain the best possible results both in my job and in work relationships.

With her help and support, I have been able to set some specific goals and design precise strategies to achieve them. As a result, I have become more organized and focused on my short and long-term goals, feeling in control of my work and home environment.

Working with Caterina has definitely been a worthwhile investment. I would highly recommend her!"

Ludo R. - Actor, 25 y.o. - London

"My experience with Caterina has been amazing. She supported me in each phase of my journey, helping me understand how actions and commitment really have an impact on behaviour and thinking.

I was very lost at the beginning of our sessions and, step by step, I learned how to focus again on myself and be more confident. I learned that I am the owner of my wellbeing and she helped me understand how to overcome difficult moments with exercises and experiences tailored for me."

Marta, 33 y.o. - London

"Having worked with Cate over a period of 6 weeks, I have put into practice many of the strategies she has suggested, with great effect. I was going through a divorce and the sale of my family home. With Cate’s guidance I have been helped to leave the burdens behind and be positive about what the future now holds"
