I mentor ambitious, heart centred leaders who want to grow their impact in areas that matter to them.
My approach is not theoretical. I know what it’s like to lead a team, be responsible for big goals, and to show up each day as powerfully as possible. I also know the doubts that can beset even the most confident leader – the second guessing, the stress that working in the old way brings, and the weight of responsibility. Being a leader can be lonely and confusing.
This is why I love to support leaders in this personal way. It’s so important to have someone you trust in your corner. In a world of high pressure, shifting goalposts and uncertainties, I will help you lead with heart and clarity.
“Working with Cathy has been an absolute game-changer for the way I lead and the challenges I take on. I now put myself forward for opportunities I would have waited another few years to even consider. In doing so, I have accomplished and excelled at the task at hand. I learned it wasn’t a lack of the technical skills, but rather it was leadership skills I was missing, which through working with Cathy I now have.”
Georgina Davies, CEO, The Little Ripple.
Working with Cathy helped me move through my self imposed limitations by clarifying my thinking, direction and goals. It’s added so much value to my organization.
In times of immeasurable change and great uncertainty, we sometimes need to borrow someone else’s belief in ourselves and possibilities for our lives, until we can restore our own.

Cathy is an authentic source for wise professional and personal guidance to make the most of the one life you have. I credit Cathy with my success in growing a non-profit globally that serves all ages by providing essential life skills to flourish.
Cathy has been instrumental in implementing a mindset change across my leadership team.
Cathy’s dedication and passion to help leaders to grow makes her an exceptional coach. She listened to our team’s challenges and partnered with us to tackle opportunities together. She has helped my team think differently and guided us to find our own solutions.
Mindset sits at the core of how I work. You are your greatest asset, yet your mindset is often your number one block.
“That’s not me’, “I tried that before and it didn’t work”, “I don’t think I’m as good as other people think” – these are examples of mindsets that determine what you take on, how you show up and how effective you will be.
With me as your mentor you will gain mastery at developing mindsets that expand what you achieve, and the manner in which you achieve it. This will transform your relationship to your work and your life.
I believe that there is nothing you need to fix, and no model you need to fit. In working with me you will discover the path of your own authentic leadership and be freed up to lead, live and work in a way that is true to you.
