Executive Coaching

Both my work as a Chief Executive and my personal life have benefited

“I have been coached by Catherine over several months, and have benefited greatly. Catherine is always exceptionally well prepared for all of the sessions and is the consummate professional in all that she does. She possesses a natural coaching style which allowed me time to think, but also questioned my assumptions and comments appropriately and deeply. Both my work as a Chief Executive and my personal life have benefited through working with Catherine. I would have no hesitation in recommending Catherine as an Executive Coach or for more general Board development work.”

A fantastic coach. She ticks all the boxes and more.

“As a fellow coach, it’s been a great experience working with Catherine. She ticks all the boxes and more. Her use of different tools to take me beyond my set patterns and assumptions and discover new insights has been invaluable at a difficult time. She ensures she’s working to my agenda and pace and that we’re making the right progress for me. I also value her warmth – she does an amazing job of combining that with enough challenge to stretch me when I need it and commit to actions. A fantastic coach.”

A better understanding of what triggers unhelpful behaviours

“Thanks to Catherine’s challenging and supportive approach, I now have a better understanding of why I do things and what triggers unhelpful behaviours. Suddenly I have new choices for responding differently which is paramount in this climate of change”

Confidence to deal with the changing environment

“On returning to my demanding role after a year’s maternity leave I was keen to ensure that I achieved the right balance between work and family life and that I put in place some strategies and techniques to ensure that I made the best use of my time. The one to one work that I have done with Catherine has been immensely helpful in achieving this. Her honest and straightforward style together with the very effective exercises that she uses in the coaching sessions helped me gain confidence to deal with the changing environment that I worked in while also changed my thinking so that I could find solutions to problems and barriers that I had to confront. I would very much recommend this style of development to managers who want to overcome barriers that affect their performance and ability in the workplace.”

Symbolism from nature as a catalyst for learning

“Catherine listened to my love of nature and exercise and promptly applied an innovative coaching approach eg working in the London parks. This method brought an added dimension – simply by walking and using symbolism from nature as a catalyst for learning, helping me to think differently and change my beliefs about myself.”

Supervision

A consummate professional, knowledgeable and caring

“Catherine’s supervision was in tune with the many different ways I coach my clients, encompassing TA, Clean Language and more. She used these too and her insights to help me reflect on my own practice. I thereby gained deeper personal understanding and improved my coaching. Catherine is a consummate professional, knowledgeable and caring and I would highly recommend her as a Supervisor.”
