About Catherine

My own healing journey began 27 years ago after suffering serious burnout. My health completely collapsed, including systemic candida, cancer, hypersensitivity to chemicals, fertility issues, anxiety and depression, I do nothing by halves it seems.

Yoga, RTT Therapy

Healing and extending my knowledge so that I can help people flourish, has always been my focus. I am so grateful for this journey and all I have learned. It’s such a joy to be able to work with people to help clear away limiting beliefs or blocks and to see them set free to truly be their amazing, shining selves sharing their gifts with the world. Living a life filled with phenomenal wellbeing. 

I live on the beautiful Whangaparaoa Peninsula in Auckland New Zealand where I have a clinic, Yoga studio and a business making natural products. I am fortunate to be able to offer my services to clients all over the planet.

I wanted to give you some background and context to the extent of my training, so you can see how seriously I have worked to make sure I can be the best and most effective therapist I can be. I believe the learning never stops and I learn and grow every day as I continue to walk this journey into sustained phenomenal wellbeing, sharing my gifts and helping others to overcome similar challenges. 

Beginnings

I started out as a chef in New Zealand and London under the wonderful tutelage of Peter Gordon, preparing dishes for celebrities and in fine dining restaurants. And as a natural progression, my love of delicious food and healthy eating, led me to later gain a certificate in Natural Nutrition.

I also was working for Theatre and Rock and Roll productions. A far cry from healing, but these years of experience as a dancer, performer and trapeze artist for theatre, television and festival, were the backbone for my love of movement through dance and yoga.

 

Vibrational Medicine

After my burnout I changed life direction completely and studied for a Diploma in Vibrational Medicine with the College of Vibrational Medicine in London. This is a two year course primarily in the making and use of flower, gem and crystal essences and includes modules on homoeopathy, TCM, counseling, crystal therapy, art and colour therapy, anatomy and physiology, codes of conduct for practitioners, group work and supervised case studies. I also trained as a healer in London at the Academy of Eternal Light over a 10 year period, gaining a teacher qualification as a Gaia Master Teacher.

Working with Cancer patients 

My experiences with cancer led me to do a course through the Penny Brohn Centre in Bristol. The course was aimed at teaching health professionals how to understand and work with cancer patients whilst utilizing the best of Medical and Holistic practices.

 

 

Neals Yard Remedies

While living in Bristol I worked for natural health company Neal’s Yard Remedies in their dispensary and shop as an in store trainer, in management and practicing as a consultant in their clinic. 

 

New Zealand

After returning to New Zealand in 2004 I trained as a Yoga teacher with Ashram Yoga – an internationally accreditied Yoga School in Auckland, gaining a 500 hour teacher training qualification, as well as Pre Natal Yoga and Yoga Nidra instructor. I have practiced Yoga for 24 years.

Two years ago I began my registered training  under Marisa Peer as an RTT Hypnotherapist. This is an extensive and ongoing training school with required continued professional development. I have been a therapist for 25 years and also have a business here in New Zealand making natural, organic artisan wellbeing products for 14 years.

 

My life’s focus and work is to help people be the best they can be, free of old wounds and stored emotions. I would love to hear from you and hear your incredible story. Get in touch today and book a  discovery interview, so that together, we can begin your journey to living a life full of health, abundance, confidence and happiness, experiencing the phenomenal wellbeing I have found on my amazing journey.
