Where else can you find Olympic level sailing experience combined with a life & relationship coach and sport psychology? When I returned to single handed sailing after a 25 year break I need to expediate the (re)learning process. As I moved up the fleet our sessions became less about the mechanics of sailing and more about the mental and emotional process. Cathy has the exact collection of skills I needed to tap into.
F GdB, Sailing Coaching

If you are looking for someone to help guide you in the processes in Olympic campaign management, once you have spoken to Cathy you will realise you have come to the right place!
Stephen M. Park, RYA Olympic Manager, Skandia Team GBR

Cathy helped me to develop many of the skills that are invaluable to me today.  Strong in all areas, she will make the difference to anyone looking to improve their performance.
Chris Draper, Bronze medallist and America's Cup sailor

Cathy was able to analyse any situation in a way I never saw before. She could put her finger on the right problem, and then get to the heart of the issue. This honesty is the choice of brave people, and if you want to face things, then employing Cathy is a winner. In short, she has a brilliant sense of judgement and I would seek her advice on every subject in any field of life.
Vered Bouskila, Israeli Olympian 2004 & 8

Cathy is a people expert. She has a deep understanding of how to help individuals to acheive their potential, and has an excellent manner that makes the process enjoyable and positive.
Jon Lasenby

Cathy's coaching has always got results. Her experience and ability to break down complex issues meant I could not fail to get better.
Andrew (Bart) Simpson , Gold & Silver Medallist

It is no coincidence that of the the three or four people Cathy was charged with specifically mentoring, three of us are now Olympic Gold medallists. Cathy taught us not only to train in a professional, analytical way but also to believe in our potential.  She took us in three years from the edge of the top ten in Britain to top three in the world, something that normally takes the lucky/talented ones ten years of stumbling up the pecking order; her contribution was thoughtful and nimble and is an important part (too often overlooked) part of Britain's sailing success.
Iain Percy, double Gold & 1 x Silver medallist

Guess who's Flying Fifteen won the race this morning?  We started last but remembered everything you taught us and made our way to the front of the fleet by the first mark. Then we were worried we wouldn't be able to remember where all the buoys were! Many Thanks.
Jo Morgan & Robin Taylor FF15

Great coach, expert and inspiring. 
Ian Loffhagen

Cathy’s coaching certainly made a big difference to me and helped me to make the transition from youth to Olympic sailing.
Ben Ainslie, Multiple Olympic Medallist (4 Gold, 1 Silver so far)

I was rather sceptical of counselling before certain life events forced me to take action and seek some professional help. I have now been 100% converted! Cathy has been calm and patient with me and, not only has she helped me to get to the root of my problems, she has equipped me with coping strategies to help get through those tough times. I can't thank her enough and would strongly recommend her services to anyone.
