Meet Cathy

Many years ago, I developed a long-term health condition that affected my physical and mental wellbeing. You can read more about my experiences here


Life was a struggle and I often felt lost and stuck. Over time, I began to recognise that I might be able to manage the impact of what was happening in a different way.

 

I decided to take action and began a period of self-recovery. It wasn’t easy but after a while, life felt lighter. I began to feel more like the ‘me’ I wanted to be.


My confidence and sense of self grew. I began to live well with my challenges rather than feeling like I was always struggling with them.


My passion for coaching was ignited by the change in perspective and wellbeing that came from my own self-development. I knew I wanted to support others to do the same and help them create a life they truly desired.

 

I went on to complete a formal coaching qualification accredited by the Association of Coaching, the National Council of Psychotherapists and the UK Health Coaches Association. To read more about my specialist coaching and therapeutic training, you can check out my qualifications and professional memberships below.

Some coaches will try and convince you that there's a quick fix for how you're feeling and that their results will be life-changing. It’s certainly true that coaching can be life-changing but through my lived experience, I know that there aren’t any short-cuts or silver bullets to changing your life. 


Lasting change comes when we take action and commit to doing things in a different way. I can support you to do that and help you move towards a brighter future.

 

I'm excited to begin the process of change with you.
