I’m here to help you Heal, Step Up and Serve
Welcome to the Cathysphere!
With a background in Corporate (investment banking IT), I know what it’s like to be ‘successful’ in a job and career and yet feel somewhat empty, even though there was a lot of it I enjoyed, deep down we know there is something more.
So, in 2007, I qualified as a QCH Therapist and started on a brand new journey, focusing on helping people in the City get past their recreational drug use and addiction, and the success of my practice naturally led to me supporting other therapists and transformation professionals, which I’ve been doing ever since.
Fast forward to today, and I offer a blend of VIP level therapy and healing together as well as business support and mentoring to purpose led business owners
Oh – and did I mention I am a complete chilli addict?
As an ex-corporate woman, who was pretty senior in my field, I had been used to a level of success, despite the almost inevitable bullying, and outright sabotage that went on for women in senior positions in a City, corporate environment.
I was used to winning *and* I was used to being not taken seriously (by men and women) unless I took on a false, more masculine energy. It was a constant see-saw.
So, escaping corporate to work for myself was something I longed to do, and I expected setting up and running my business to work. I didn’t expect it to be easy, but I have to admit that I expected to just learn about it, apply what I’d learned and be good at it.
I expected to rise to the top and earn a good living – only this time doing something that helped others, and made a difference in the world.
BUUUUUTTTTTT….. It didn’t quite work out like that.
I suddenly felt very alone (where were my team?).
And, I was hit by some huge and very unexpected confidence gremlins.
I started losing confidence in my own ability, my ability to run a business and even my own ability as a therapist and mentor at times.
But being a therapist meant that I had everything I needed to work through all those gremlins, even though they really knocked me for six at first.
When you walk out of the corporate world as someone the world would see as successful and ambitious, suddenly everything changes…..
Now, I know that my own mission and purpose is to help others find theirs and make it a reality. Helping people who have something amazing to give to the world is top of my list.
What I stand for
It’s only fair that you know the principles behind the way I work, so if you are considering working with me, or buying one of my programmes, you will know if we are a good fit or not
I am a big advocate of only selling what we 100% believe in. If we don’t know it’s the absolute best thing for our clients – how can we offer it?
And in our marketing, do we 100% believe everything we are claiming?
This can be a tough one, I’m not saying it’s easy, but this is a fantastic test and can act as a compass to let us know if we are still going in the right direction
That said, sometimes a lack of belief in our offerings is down to the ‘I’m not good enough’ gremlins isn’t it?
So, I think it’s our responsibility to know the difference between the ‘not-good-enough’ gremlins and a genuine gap in our expertise.
Deal with the not-good-enough gremlins first, and everything will become so much clearer
Unconditional positive regard for our clients and potential clients is one of my principles, both in my therapy practice and in business mentoring.
Of course, this isn’t always easy
So what I mean is stepping back from time to time and asking ourselves, “Is this the absolute best thing for this person?”
Some times we hold back from selling our stuff or even speaking about it because we are afraid of what people may think.
And if this is the case, we need to address this with gentle therapy so we can start thinking about what’s best for others.
And a note for my business mentoring clients: If we have something we know will be life-changing for them, isn’t it our responsibility to offer it, and to make it compelling for them?
And other times we hold back because we don’t believe enough in them. ‘They won’t commit’ or ‘they wont pay for this’.
If you find yourself thinking this, then step back and notice it.
Do we have the right to decide what a client can or can’t do?, can or can’t afford? will or won’t commit to?
Your client is a superstar and they (like everyone) are capable of great things. Let’s honour them for this.
I’m not saying I always get this right, but the key is to recognise it, step back and shift our thinking
Finally, our professional self is not isolated.
We are all mind, body and spirit, and it is ALL of us that’s in business or our profession.
And for that reason, if you buy any of my programmes or we work together, you will find that caring for our mind, body and spirit play a big part in the way I work, as well as the very practical business side for my mentoring clients.
As a mentor I love helping people design their business, to put together the pieces that make up their message, their offerings and their offers. To help with the practical side of getting these pieces in place (including the tech),
And trust me – this all goes so much more smoothly when we acknowlege the whole of us.
