Do you lack willpower ?
Do you have habits you want to change ?
Do you want to change your behaviour ?
Do you know what you want to do … and yet you have trouble following through and doing it ?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions then you have come to the right place.
Cathy wants to help make it easier for you.
When you’ve tried before it didn’t work.
It probably didn’t work for three reasons :
1. You didn’t ask yourself the right questions. We know ourselves better than anyone else but if we don’t ask ourselves the right questions, we don’t get the right answers.
2. You didn’t understand how behaviour change (in general) works so you made mistakes.
3. Changing behaviour is hard work and you didn’t have enough support to keep going.
Cathie can ask you the right questions, give you information about behaviour change and support you to keep going.
You are in the right place to find out if Cathie is the person to support you. Please browse around this website and contact Cathie to ask her questions or request a complimentary coaching session.
I didn’t know how Cathie worked when I first went to her for help to stop biting my nails. I didn’t understand what a coach was, so I was interested in what she would do as a coach as opposed to being a counsellor.
Once I started working with her, I was impressed with the way she didn’t let me get into a counselling situation but kept the focus on what we were doing.
It’s still a bit of a mystery to me how coaching has worked, but my experience has been positive. Meeting with Cathie has kept me on task.
I particularly liked that Cathie really cares about what she is doing, and does her homework.
When I arrived to see her, Cathie was always really prepared. She made notes that she sent me after our meeting, and a reminder about the next one. She gave me lots of exercises. (Most of them that I haven’t even had to do yet, so they are all stored up for when I have to struggle with this)
In any sort interaction the person who is leading it needs to do more at the beginning, and gradually enable the other person to do more as they go along. I think that this worked well in my coaching with Cathie. She provided me with the structure and she provided me with a lot of information (which of course it was up to me to use or not) As the process has gone on I've become more of the active one, and that that's what I feel is a useful process, so it has gone well.
