Are you fed up of:

– Living with chronic pain and managing your life around your symptoms?

– Living in fear of movement or the next flare up?

– Feeling tired and stressed?

– Feeling hopeless and stuck in a cycle of managing stress and pain?

– Feeling not good enough?

Are you ready to feel:

Free from pain so you can lead an active, healthy life?

– At ease and generally happier?

Confident about your future?

If you are, please let me help you.

Why work with me?

Because I have been there and I truly understand how it all feels. I have battled with chronic pain symptoms on and off for years, and live with anxiety – successfully and sometimes unsuccessfully. I am human too.

I am passionate about a holistic view of our health and finding balance between our four levels of being: mind, body, spirit and emotions.

I practise what I preach. I will hold your hand as you transition to a pain-free, more fulfilled life and be with you every step of the way, until you are living your life as YOU choose.

I’m a qualified PT and internationally recognised and accredited Holistic Life Coach and Mind Body Practitioner.

It took me a long time to realise that I was not ‘broken’ physically or emotionally, and that it was truly possible to heal myself through my understanding of the mind body connection. I was sceptical at first too, but I have now learnt how to find my balance, and I can help you too.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you in your journey to full health and happiness,

Tonight, I’d like to give a massive big shout out to Catherine McDonnell. I have been suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia for the last nine months. It’s a pretty nasty disease which gave me excruciating pain on a regular basis in my face and was getting progressively worse. Imagine someone drilling the root under your wisdom tooth with no anaesthetic, sometimes for up to 40 minutes straight, and when it finally stops, spending the rest of the day feeling like you’ve just been kicked by a horse, and you might understand what it was like. The doctors couldn’t help and my life became more and more difficult. Many people who suffer from TN end up taking their own lives. It’s nicknamed “the suicide disease”.I was lucky enough to have a husband who found information online about a theory regarding chronic pain, which eventually led me to Catherine. I am one of the lucky ones to have worked out, with her invaluable help, what the route cause of my pain was. She has taught me to “unlearn my pain” by rerouting my neural pathways, understanding how to take better care of my health, and, finally, now 99% of my pain has gone. If I get a twinge, I know exactly what to do, and I’m not afraid of living anymore. If there are any chronic pain sufferers out there who have not found a solution through the regular channels, I would encourage you to look up the work of Dr Sarno and contact Catherine. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be switching my light off tonight in the knowledge that I won’t be waking up every 2 hours screaming in agony, with my husband having to sleep on the other side of the house as I couldn’t bear him to witness it and him feeling completely unable to help. Thank you Catherine from the bottom of my very grateful heart. ♥️♥️♥️

Catherine is a delight to talk to. She is warm, compassionate and it’s clear that she respects and values her clients’ time and experiences that they are sharing. As someone who also lives with chronic pain, it’s refreshing and validating to talk to someone who also chooses to live their life as fully and positively as possible. Thank you Catherine!

Our environment, and how we respond to it, plus the toxins around us and the trauma we face affect the health of our bodies down to a cellular level.
