Hi, I’m Cathy and I’ve created Thrive to provide practical resources and personalised support to people wanting to understand what lies behind their anxiety.

I’m a qualified, experienced coach and I’ve suffered with anxiety and depression for around 30 years. My own experience as a sufferer, and the work I’ve done with clients, has made it clear to me that when people feel stuck in their lives it’s almost always because there’s some anxiety somewhere that isn’t being addressed.

We are living through an unprecedented global event and levels of anxiety are skyrocketing. Even people who didn’t have experience of living with anxiety before are now getting more familiar with it than they ever wanted to be, and this is likely to go on for months.

I’ve worked with people who have pushed themselves to get to a certain place in their career only to end up desperately unhappy once they get there but for some reason feeling able to make a change.

I’ve worked with people in very unhappy relationships that they don’t feel able to bring to an end, or unhappily single and feeling like they will never find anyone to share their life with.

I’ve worked with people whose relationship with money is unhealthy and causing them real problems but who feel unable to do anything about it.

And I’ve been in all those situations myself.

What I’ve discovered is that, in all of these cases, there is a deep-seated, sometimes unconscious, anxiety churning away and making change feel impossible. It’s been true for me and for all of my clients, and it will be true for you too.

When you are willing to explore the origins of your anxiety and the unhelpful defences you’ve built up to protect yourself, that’s when you start to flourish, and that’s where my work comes in.

We are living through an unprecedented global event and levels of anxiety are skyrocketing. Even people who didn’t have experience of living with anxiety before are now getting more familiar with it than they ever wanted to be, and this is likely to go on for months.

I am not a counsellor (but I am training to become one in a few years’ time) nor am I a medical professional. What I am is a qualified, experienced coach with a background in personal development. I’m qualified to administer a couple of psychometric profiling tools and my coaching style is proven to be therapeutic and literally life-changing.

If you’d like to find out what it’s like to be coached by me, please get in touch now so that we can organise your free initial coaching session.
