I have known Cathy for a long time and knew too, that she would be there for me if I ever needed her help.When that time came, Cathy was extremely supportive. She was non-judgemental and helped me to view my challenges from various points of view. She didn't have the answers, but her questions and her comments, enabled me to come up with my own. Thoroughly professional at all times, I can recommend Cathy's coaching and support without reservation. Thank you Cathy.
