Biography

I've worked in PR and communications for 30 years, including 15 years in the public sector. I have collaborated and volunteered with various youth charities for 20 years, and am Trustee of a children's rights charity, Article 39. I remain active in local and national campaigning.

I support clients who want to make a social impact through their businesses and lives. We collaborate to celebrate their individuality and unique strengths and become changemakers.

I combine coaching and mentoring, and have a down-to-earth, empathetic style, with a heavy dose of humour. My philosophy is that every single person can change the world for the better and that by embracing their individuality, clients will discover the change they can make.

Testimonials

  • (1/4)What drew you to Cathy's services?
    I needed support to help set up a community cafe.

    What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Cathy?
    I didn't know where to even start!

    What changed after working with Cathy?
    Cathy gave me a clear path to follow and also sent me some great resources to get me moving in the right direction. She also was very knowledgeable about the third sector and made connections with very prominent people in my community who could help. There was a great balance between Cathy helping get my head into gear married with hands-on practical help and support.

    What specific results can you share?
    I was able to connect with prominent people in my community who could move things forward. Ultimately, with her support, I was also brave enough to make some very big decisions that I didn't have the courage to make on my own.

    What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Cathy's services?
    I would say call Cathy and have a chat. She is really down to earth and her outlook and informal, welcoming and a general sense of humour is both refreshing and calming!

  • (2/4)What drew you to Cathy's services?
    Emotional stress and mind block with pressures of work and relationship separation.

    What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Cathy?
    Controlling emotions, always being agitated around the ones I love, unable to focus, procrastination and total mind block stopping me from getting work done.

    What changed after working with Cathy?
    The realization that I was the cause and answer to my own problems, not balancing myself and time more, feeling guilty to be BALANCED because I had got into the bad habit of work and acute stress/adrenaline that I had become immune too. Learning to accept that sometimes less is more and not putting on self-pressure which ultimately became my failure to complete tasks.

    What specific results can you share?
    The Pomodoro effect of tacking tasks in small sections and taking regular breaks for even just 5 minutes to do something more mindful can make a huge difference. Allowing myself a time out to do activities I desire without feeling the need to explain to everyone and feel guilty.

    What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Cathy's services?
    It will be one of the best personal investments you make. Things give you a short term fix but 6 weeks of coaching will give you a longer-term fix.

  • (3/4)What drew you to Cathy's services?
    Word of mouth.

    What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Cathy?
    To work through a number of issues that were getting me down.

    What changed after working with Cathy?
    I was able to understand what was making me unhappy and take steps to organise my work/life balance and get back in control.

    What specific results can you share?
    I recognised that I was overwhelmed working from home and working long hours and took some office space.

    What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Cathy's services?
    There's no point struggling on if you are not managing on your own. Just having the freedom to tell Cathy about what's getting you down without thinking about bothering someone with my problems was a massive relief. She helped me focus on what I needed and so I was able to help myself.
