About me

I am Cathleen - a former "busy" Londoner who recently moved to the countryside.

I help individuals who truly want to live a more fulfilled life with a greater sense of direction.

  • Do you want to do ‘something different’ with your life but you don’t quite know where to start?
  • Are you feeling stuck or frustrated in your life having this strong desire to get unstuck and do something about it?
  • Do you find yourself feeling lost, unsure and even unhappy at times?

As your personal coach, I will help you understand and successfully manage whatever life throws at you. Together, we will identify what it is you really want to achieve. We will set clear goals and a manageable plan that will take you to where you want to go.

Providing a safe and confidential space where the attention and focus is entirely on you and no one else, you will learn how to apply the tools and techniques that will help you explore and define your dreams, goals and your personal life purpose in your day-to-day life.

Each session builds your momentum, as you develop and continue to take the actions of your choice. You will also learn to hold yourself accountable and create life changing habits. Change takes time, and you will see how consistent, small changes can help you eventually making a big difference.

I work with clients who:

  • Care about being valued and loved
  • Understand the need to appreciate themselves
  • Want to live a meaningful life
  • Want to be at ease with themselves and the world around them
  • Are committed to their personal development
  • Want to be HAPPY

I am based in Surrey and London working with both individuals and groups across the world on a face-to-face, phone and virtual basis (Skype & Zoom).


"I really enjoyed my coaching sessions with you, thanks Cathleen. I immediately felt at ease in your company, and your warm, open and positive energy helped me to really open up and bring my truest self to the process. You were challenging in a helpful and friendly way, and also inspiring to make me want to work harder to get the best out of the sessions."?

Lindsay, Senior Project Manager

"I just wanted to say thank you. After your coaching and encouragement over the years, I decided I needed to change helped me to be ok with bouncing from crisis to crisis and I just wanted to say thank you for all your help.”

Charlotte, Communications Project Manager

"Dear Cathleen, I cannot thank you enough for all your support, for making me work...hard. I loved the way you combined softness and empathy with openness and a truly goal-orientated approach! My life has changed so much and this is only the beginning! Thank you!"

Lydia, HR Professional

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained to receive my certificate of Professional Coaching Skills with Coaching Development Ltd. in April 2016. Since then I have been coaching middle management and senior leaders within large corporations. I am also a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF).

In March 2017, I started my own coaching business - CMC - which gives me the opportunity to work with individuals on their personal goals and groups who want to connect, grow together and learn with and from each other on a personal coaching basis.

Life coaching captures all areas of life - your relationship with yourself and others, your career and profession, your personal growth and so many more. As human beings, we are so highly resourceful, and sometimes we simply need this ever so powerful "nudge" to make change happen. That's what I am here for!

Other areas of coaching I deal with







Love & Relationships



Set your life up for success and turn your vision into reality!
Personal Development Coaching can be one of the keys to a happier, fulfilled life. My job is to give you the tools and techniques to achieve your goals.

From our Coaching sessions, you will become well-versed at handling issues whenever and wherever they arise. You will receive private email access to contact me in times when you need some further and support between sessions can be arranged upon request.

My coaching programmes can be tailored to your individual circumstances and so prices may vary. As an example, an individual coaching with me for 6 sessions over 3 months would be £850 for 60 minutes sessions.

On-going support in between sessions includes:

  • Follow-up email after each session as well as email support between sessions.
  • Between session homework - to help you continue your development between sessions.
  • Regular review to ensure your coaching sessions are supporting you in the way that is right for you.
  • An introduction into a variety of coaching tools.

Choosing a coaching package ensures you are not only going to enjoy a one-off session; you will instead be taken on a path of change and self-development to ensure a sustainable result at the end of our sessions.
