Cathy Boucher, For Careers With Heart, Diploma in Coaching
I help professional women who are at a crossroads in their life to find a new career which brings them fulfilment.
They have a strong desire to make a difference to the world and their heart is telling them it is time to make a change. They feel unsure and don't know what to do for the best.
I help them find a role which resonates with their strengths and aspirations, and gives them a good work/life balance they are looking for.
I support women to evaluate their priorities and find an alternative career which gives them purpose and passion. I help them get clarity about what is really important to them in their work and how to find their dream role.
So take control of your future, and find a role that is authentic to you and a way to make a difference in that something that is important to you.
I offer a programme of coaching sessions which:
- Creates a safe place for you to articulate those feelings that you have dared not say to anyone else
- Helps you to visualise a future life with a career which is aligned with your aspirations and strengths
- Enables you to explore different options and make decisions about what will bring you fulfilment and purpose
- Supports you to create an achievable plan to realise your dream
- Gives you the confidence to find your passion and to make a difference
I offer meetings via Zoom or Skype as clients find this a convenient way of meeting. Alternatively if that technology isn't an option, the phone can really work.
Training, qualifications & experience
I spent many years as a scientist and a technology consultant, striving to make a difference and help my clients. I had some success and also experienced many setbacks. I used to look for jobs that I thought I should be good at and not roles that I truly wanted to do. For years, I was wondering what others were doing to get ahead and what piece of the puzzle I was missing. It wasn't until I turned 50 and had a health scare, that I felt that I seriously needed to do something different. After much self reflection and talking to lots of people, I was able to identify my strengths and how I could help others to find purpose and fulfilment.
I have a calm and collected demeaner, and am a natural listener. I give my clients time to speak. I have a strong focus on what is being said and am able to guide others to unlock the heart of the problem. I am able to help my clients to look at things from different perspectives and to find a vision of their future with no barriers.
I really enjoy meeting new clients, and seeing their progression over a course of sessions, to where they no longer need me. I always feel privileged to hear people's stories and am humbled that they trust me and share their deepest feelings. I believe that everyone can excel in something, they just need to find what that is, and then they too can make a difference.

I offer a 45 minute Complimentary Careers with Heart Clarity Session to gain clarity about how you’d like your job to be different and a first step to making a change. Please message me to arrange a time for this session.
At the end of the Clarity Session, there will be time to discussion how we could work together in the future and for you to ask questions, but there is no obligation to do so.
Everything you say in this consultation is confidential.
"Cathy has been a great listener: Speaking to her during the coaching session was natural, comfortable and effortless. She has enabled me to gain clarity and understanding of my own self and where I am at. Over her sessions she made me a stronger individual, realising what I needed to be working on and what in my own self deserves most time and focus. She is particularly brilliant at situations related to personal and work relationships, as she gives you the opportunity to fully express yourself, be authentic and later incorporate that authenticity in other fields of your life. I enjoyed working with her tremendously"
"With her, it is not just a correct and professional approach, but sympathy and kindness towards others as well as a deep understanding of challenging situations. These elements are truly crucial to any conflict resolution and empowering, whatever field one is coached in"
"Cathy has been exceptionally valuable in helping me clarify my deep thoughts towards my career ambitions. She has a masterful art in bringing out clarity of purpose and helping one reach tangible objectives. Cathy has a way of helping you reconceptualise your blurry thoughts in a way that forms meaningful strategic directions. I particularly liked her style of asking you challenging questions ‘on the why’ and how she helps you bring out the underlying reason that strengthens your goals and objectives. As a client, it is surprising to discover how much knowledge and solution I have buried within me after each coaching session"
"Cathy is an extremely skilled coach. Our work together led me from a place of uncertainty and speculation, to a plan with goals and a timeline. Her insightful questions gave me real food for thought and allowed me to reflect on areas I hadn't considered. Whenever I got stuck, she asked something both relevant and provocative which helped me to shift my thinking. Her personal warmth assured me that I had someone walking alongside me at all times throughout our sessions. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Cathy and I wholeheartedly recommend her as a coach."
