Testimonials

“Finding myself at a crossroads in my career and in my life I knew I needed guidance, but I wasn’t sure what to expect when I decided to work with Catherine. It has been an incredible journey so far. Catherine’s ability to listen, and I mean really listen, and offer insight is powerful and life changing however you have to be ready to do the work and Catherine was very clear about this from the start always keeping me on track, pushing me forward with every session. In a few short months I have more confidence and clarity than I have had in a very long time.”

“For the past months, Catherine has provided me with immeasurable support. Our relationship is one of deep trust without fear of judgment, of honesty delivered with great care and compassion. In a manner that is always affirming, she guides me to reframe the issue I am struggling with, which invariably sets in motion a breakthrough, and has enabled incredible personal growth. I cannot recommend her highly enough - she truly is a lifesaver.”

“The work I have done with Catherine has been incredibly rewarding, and continues to bring positive change in both my personal and professional life. Embarking on a personal development journey is daunting, but Catherine is a positive, compassionate and wise guide. She intuitively adapts her process to the conversation and truly decodes what is being said to create actionable steps to reach your goals, and find a new level of well-being. I really appreciate her deep knowledge of the healing arts, self-development tools and philosophy. She never tries to push a particular framework on you if it doesn’t resonate, it feels like a journey we take together rather than a didactic exchange. She keeps it real; she is not a guru but an insightful guide and a kind ear (and she knows when to have a good laugh). Above all, I have the utmost respect for her integrity. Our work together continues to help me push myself towards a more realized version of myself. (Bonus points: she can seamlessly coach in both French and English.)”

Flora Guillon - NYC -

“First, Catherine has a voice, the voice, that is present to initiate the dialogue, to keep it going, little by little, step by step, smoothly and determined, during & in between the sessions. She is very warm, joyful yet serious, always, compassionate. Then she really has a total physical presence that you can feel, even over the phone & thousands miles away, through her way of listening & her heart. She has tons of energy & good vibes. Catherine is dedicated to full extent of the woman that I am, with her lights & shadows, her doubts & certainties and she does so while honoring who she is and how she got here. Working with her, feels like entering a whole new community.”
