COACHING AND MENTORING : TESTIMONIALS 2014 - PRESENT.
“I have known Catherine on both a personal and professional level for the past 5 years. She always puts 100% into whatever projects she is working on and her enthusiasm is contagious. I first met Catherine when I helped her parents re-design their living room and we have since worked together on a couple of other projects including the styling and photographing of a beautiful period property, which she had painstakingly restored and brought back to life.Catherine is a dynamic and accomplished professional, who is always ready to lead and inspire others. She is also one of the most genuine and personable business women I have had the pleasure to meet. She has provoked thoughts and creative ideas to help me establish and grow my own business. I have found her social media posts especially inspiring – she is a constant champion of self-belief and development. Catherine’s motivation and dedication to her work and the people she meets along the way is truly remarkable and I cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking to do business with her!”

Not only is she extremely business savvy, but also intelligently patient and constantly evolving and most of all, she relentlessly continues to help others to becoming equipped for success. With all her successes she never forgets to give back to the community and always strives to make a good difference.

“Catherine is an incredible powerhouse of inspiration. Her tenacity and determination to create a life and livelihood of her dreams knows no bounds and I truly believe Catherine will accomplish anything she sets her mind to. Catherine is an excellent coach and mentor. As an entrepreneur, it’s important to seek advice from someone who has share similar experiences of setting up their own company and working through challenges. Catherine epitomises perseverance and entrepreneurialism and I am always left bubbling with enthusiasm and actions after our meetings. She has a marvellous skill of both listening to you and shinning a light on the things you have left unsaid which are the exact areas you need to focus on! Endlessly positive, I feel I can achieve anything with Catherine on my team. I was fortunate to take part in her Mastermind group and can honestly say I achieved more in that year both professionally and personally than ever before. I look forward to working with Catherine to help create the future of my dreams and would thoroughly recommend her skills to everyone who wants to receive savvy business advice, empathy and empowerment.”

“Since working with Catherine, I've doubled my business income to reach six figures in less than 6 months AND I hit a major goal and bought my first house (I thought that would take me 5 years, but Catherine's all about how to achieve your goals FAST)!
Now we're working on the next set of goals and I'm stretched and scared but excited to see what I can do, because I know Catherine's going to hold me accountable and stand for my dreams every step of the way, especially when I get scared and tempted to back away from something that seems too big.
Catherine's a strong, inspirational woman who's achieved phenomenal things in her own life and business, and I'm so proud and grateful to have her as my coach and mentor. I cannot recommend Catherine enough.”
Maxine Loader, Small business social media training and consultancy, Ginger Basil Ltd.

"I am a serial entrepreneur & run two businesses. One in coaching high level executives and their senior teams and the other is a global training academy. So, I always have a busy schedule & need grounding with sound, SMART steps and goals. I have worked with Catherine for a considerable time for both personal & business coaching. Her style is very direct & commanding, holding one accountable and unable to hide. Her understanding of business is so clear it enables clarity to come to a situation where sometimes it is difficult to ‘see the wood from the trees’.I would recommend Catherine to any senior executive that wants to take their business to the next level or that wants to branch out into property investing - she will not only guide you, but insist that you get there! Thank you Catherine for the direct assistance you have given me over the years. Marvelous."
Tessa Kirby, Bath UK – Energy by Tessa & The Global Goddesses Business Academy.
“I approached Catherine because I was looking for support in setting goals and being kept accountable for making sure I was on track to achieve my goals. Catherine was incredibly helpful, firstly by getting me started with setting my personal and professional goals for the year. We then broke them down into monthly goals, which I’d never done before and made them seem more achievable. The result; my achievements shot up, I achieved all the goals set for each month and subsequently have nearly achieved all the goals I set for myself this year, including ones I previously couldn’t see how I could achieve. I could never have done any of this without the support and accountability of Catherine”.
Chloe, Wiltshire UK
“I have had the privilege of knowing Catherine for over 40 years. During that time I've seen her develop from working with her family at their well established hotel business in the English Lake District to now being a self-motivated, inspiring entrepreneur who has created a number of successful business ventures ranging from real estate investment through to coaching & mentoring.
Through all these ventures runs a common thread of an enthusiastic, clear thinking and thoroughly decent approach to business. Catherine is a kind and thoughtful person who at times has had to juggle a number of family related challenges with her work commitments - and in my view has successfully managed to do so. Catherine is completely trustworthy and can always be relied on to do the right thing. And she's great fun to be with and has an infectious zest for life.”
Henry Ashwin, Yoga Instructor & Former Senior Manager, Real Estate Risk, Royal Bank of Scotland

“I have known Catherine for over forty years, since we were at junior school together. She has always been a trusted and loyal friend which is why I decided to engage her as a business consultant. We meet up when I travel for business back to the U.K. from France, where I now live and Catherine gives me excellent business advice to help me move my international business forward. She is an inspirational entrepreneur and I find her very motivational. She always gives sound, structured guidance based on her business experience and I will definitely be working with Catherine again in the future. If you are looking for someone empathetic, but driven and focussed, you’ll not find a better business coach than Catherine.”
