Testimonials

“Cath presented at one of our Sorority Supper Clubs – a 2 course dinner hosted by and sandwiched between sessions from an expert trainer. Many women in the group had previously requested training in managing difficult conversations, with some feeling unable to separate emotion from facts in fraught discussions, others struggling with anxiety in the run up to them, and many unsure about how to put across an opinion or idea they knew wouldn’t be received well.
The session Cath presented was clearly well researched and prepared, and very much tailored to our delegates. As an empathetic trainer, she was relatable and personal, and her humour made the topic accessible and engaging. Her points were clear and concise and enabled the delegates to take away pointers and skills I’m sure they’ll all put to good use.
I would highly recommend Cath as a trainer and presenter, having seen her in action one to one, and working with large groups. Everyone enjoyed the session immensely, and I would definitely say it was one of our most successful events to date, thanks to Cath’s session.”

My coaching was related to some significant life-changing decisions.  Having a sounding board and a way to reflect on potential outcomes was really useful and positive.  So much so that after the first session, I put in place steps to fundamentally help and change my work life balance.  The questioning of why I thought things and guiding through my own thought processes really brought clarity to some situations.  Cath was very flexible with my circumstances re timing of sessions which was appreciated.
