About

COACHING

The philosophy behind the coaching that I offer is that we are all “naturally creative, resourceful and whole”. To say it differently we all have an endless stock of resources (our potential), but we often don’t know how to access them.

 

These principles guide my coaching practice.

  • The power to grow lies within each and everyone, individuals and organisations.

  • Each individual matters; bringing together a diversity of ideas broadens perspective and is key to address today’s challenges.

  • With difference comes also disagreement; learning to listen deeply, beyond the polarised viewpoints, is critical to co-create.

 

I am always amazed to witness, with each and every client, the reservoir of energy and creativity they have and the transformative impact the coaching sessions have on their life.

About

ME

After 20 years in Human Resources, mostly in high-tech and financial sectors in France, I moved to London. I spent 7 years working, studying, volunteering and discovering other cultures. I discovered a different social model, different ways of doing and understanding the world. I reassessed many of my preconceived ideas.

 

Being back in France, I want to share the drive to create, the ability to bounce back and reinvent yourself that I discovered and liked in London to help build a more sustainable and inclusive world.

People, how they live, grow, change (or not), and interact has always been my major interest.

I trained in London with the industry-leading Co-Active Training Institute, an International Coaching Federation-accredited programme.

I also trained in Non-Violent Communication and Positive Intelligence.

As a coach, I enjoy shaking, in a gentle way, the current world of my client so that they can access their strengths, DARE to be who they really are and to do what they really want. It becomes then easy to act in alignment with their core values, free from internal or external judgements and to have more impact.

In a world where speed, noise, competition have become the norms, I provide space, time, support and playfulness.

TESTIMONIALS

“I had a couple of really insightful and interesting coaching sessions with Catherine. She is a really careful listener and gave me quiet space emotionally and intellectually to explain my situation and then guided me with a subtle touch to understand my parameters and needs.

I found taking action on my own behalf was easy when I understood the dynamics of the work relationship I was in. I am delighted to recommend her.”

Jill, Arts Director | London

"I had the opportunity to be coached by Catherine for nearly 3 months. Thanks to her benevolent posture and active listening, I gradually regained my self-confidence, returned the taste and the value of work and put in place solutions to take my life in hand. 6 months later, I'm really not the same woman!

I particularly appreciated her way of making us see things from another angle and also, her way of releasing some hard points by digging them in a subtle and delicate way ... In short, I recommend!"

Jennifer, Manager | Paris

"Catherine, supported me through coaching sessions in my desire for career change. What immediately stand out in Catherine are her gentleness and her immense ability to listen and empathize. Through seemingly playful techniques, she gradually leads to reflect on oneself, to ask the right questions to reach "alone" solutions. Moreover, her techniques allow taking a step back, which leads to appeasement, to take distance from the sources of stress. She offers us support tools and above all ways to motivate ourselves deeply and excel! Thanks to her, I took action in a rational way and learned to manage emotional conflicts. Thank you Catherine!
