About me

Is this you?

You're a passionate, intelligent and imaginative individual. There are parts of your life may look great on paper, but you're not fully happy. This feeling has been there for a while, and although it’s intensity may rise and fall, deep inside you know that something needs to change.

You may or may not know what that change looks like. It might be relocating, a completely different career, travelling for a while, or something else. Or you know that the life, business or career you have, has the potential to be amazing, if only you could stop getting in your own way.

You might already be doing something that you adore, but you feel as though you are losing yourself within it, and are craving more space to check in with yourself, and have more fun and ease, as that was the point in the first place.

How I support you

I'll work with you to connect deeply to yourself, what‘s important to you, strengths and how you really want to spend your life. I’ll support you listen to your instincts, and explore what crave and long for; allowing you to make choices and decisions in your life that you connect with wholeheartedly.

I understand the internal battle between what you want, what you fear, and what you believe you 'should' be doing, that can leave you feeling disconnected from yourself, and exhausted.

Who are you really? That part of you that comes alive when nobody is watching and you're not worrying about being judged.

I offer you a non- judgmental space to be completely yourself in while we explore your passions, fears, brilliance and dreams.

Who I work with

You really do believe that your life can be better.

You have some idea, no matter how small, about what change would look like to you.

You are ready to confront yourself, your idea's and your beliefs about yourself and the world around you.

You are open and receptive to challenge and with being uncomfortable and vulnerable sometimes.

You have both the space and the desire to put the work in.

You want to put the time in between sessions to make the most of our time working together.

Further information

What clients have said about their coaching experience with me.

I would whole heartedly recommend Catherine as a life and career coach.I needed a life and career coach as I was facing an upcoming career change and going through personal instability, and needed to make sense of my chaotic (and often self-degrading) thoughts. She has a gentle approach in getting to my internal mental blockers, though can show 'tough-love' if you require her to, and I've certainly noticed a shift within myself in terms of how I view myself, the confidence (and excitement) I have in my future (despite not knowing all the answers!) and handling uncertainty and change. For example, I have gone from being completely afraid of the idea of networking and the social anxiety it brings, to going to a global conference in Kenya and being able to have conversations with people from a range of professional backgrounds – I could not see myself doing that a few months ago.- Laura Nortey - Senior Programme Officer

- Catherine has been an enormous help to me in my professional and personal business. Her gentle, patient and dedicated coaching has enabled me to see and successfully remove blocks and unhelpful beliefs that were holding me back. At the end of my first block of sessions, I was proud to say we had ticked off every item I had on my initial wish list. I continue to work with Catherine and highly recommend her coaching services.  - Mark Field - Actor, Director and Communications Trainer. -

"My coaching sessions with Catherine have given me insight into my current beliefs about myself and the world around me. Catherine is extremely professional and expresses upmost empathy during coaching sessions. I would recommend Catherine especially for those who have a stressful job or own their own business."  - Daniel O'Shaughnessy - The Naked Nutritionist , UK

"I would recommend Catherine to anybody. She is the most instinctive, warm and analytical person, an amazing listener, and combining all these skills made her a key element in redefining my career goals and life objectives. She develops a real session plan tailored to your needs, always spot on. Every session was a pleasure and it did help me to make the right choices regarding my next career move!" - Gabrielle, Travel Writer - Portugal

I found the authenticity course I did with Catherine to be invaluable. We worked together in identifying what my values are – both in and out of work situations – which have therefore helped to me understand what I respond to, and have helped me to recognise my behaviours moving forwards. I felt comfortable talking to Catherine in a non-judgmental, safe space , and found the sessions to be pro-active and collaborative in working towards my own personal goals. Can thoroughly recommend, as I feel I now approach situations from a stronger place thanks to our sessions.  - Tony Rochford, Director in Television

"I had coaching sessions with Catherine during a time when I needed to re-evaluate my career path and start making progress towards a way of working that I find enriching and fulfilling. Catherine's non-judgemental manner, plus her clear experience, helped me refocus on what I need to do to build the kind of working life I desire and I have begun to make significant changes, both practically and in my outlook. I recommend Catherine to anyone open to finding their own answers with the support of a calm and creative coach"-Tracy, Volunteer Manager - U.K

My sessions with Catherine empowered me to take action in areas that I had passion but lacked confidence. Catherine helped me build my confidence by working with my strengths and successes and how I can use those to reach the goals that I struggled with. The coaching process with Catherine allowed me to generate so many options that my goals appeared possible and even easily achievable" Alex, Personal Coach - UK

My sessions with Catherine were really helpful in identifying useful habits and methods that I could expand on, to help express myself both creatively and emotionally. This has helped me focus on my strengths and shore up my weaknesses. I feel that my approach to work and life has become more authentic and, as a result, more effective."
