About Me

Born and raised in Cape Town, I qualified as a Biokineticist in the early 2000’s having graduated from Rhodes University with a degree in Ergonomics and Psychology. Through working with cardiac patients and weight management clients at the Sports Science Institute in Newlands, Cape Town, I quickly found my niche and developed a special interest in cardiac rehabilitation, weight management and wellness as a whole.

As a wife and parent, I sought to find a job that would offer me the flexibility that I desired. I left private practice and continued working in the health and wellness industry, as a wellness specialist for two corporate companies in South Africa. During this time, I completed the Chronic Disease Self-Management Programme at Stanford University (USA) and continued to train leaders in the industry on how to support and encourage patient self-management.

Life turned on its head many years later, when I, at the age of 41, was diagnosed with breast cancer. I realised that changes had to be made and so I resigned from my corporate job. It was at this point that I developed my passion for coaching – I was grateful for my deepened awareness and understanding of the importance of living with a sense of purpose, peace, and gratitude, regardless of circumstance.

“I appreciated Cath’s gentleness and empathetic approach. I knew I was in a ‘safe space’ and so had confidence sharing my goals, feelings, experiences, and emotions with her”.

“This New Insights Life Coaching Programme has made me delve deep for sincere self-reflection to better understand myself, to focus on what’s truly important and to bring about positive transformation in my life. It’s been most rewarding and empowering”.

“I loved how Catherine steered me in the right direction and helped me to realise what now seems so obvious. Catherine is extremely empathetic and non-judgemental in her approach, which made it so easy for me to open up and have a truthful conversation”.

“I love how she challenged me in her questioning – but not too pushy or too assertive – to make me think deeper about goals that are out of my comfort zones, but all reachable”.
