With a background in Investment Banking and IT, Cathy made the move to becoming a practicing Cognitive Hypnotherapist in 2007 after qualifying with the Quest Institute; initially specialising in drug use and addiction which was so prevalent in the City of London, where she had worked for many years.
In what seemed a natural progression Cathy shifted her focus to training and supporting therapists and other vision-led professionals to take their businesses to the next level and to break through their blocks to success so that they can make the difference in the world they long for.
Whilst in the background, over the last 7+ years Cathy’s life has been personally impacted by dementia within her own family, and she is only too aware of the toll it can take, not just for the person living with dementia, but for all those around them; their families, carers and loved ones.
Cathy is passionate about giving people the tools to transform their lives, take back control and live their best life, and she is delighted to be able to extend this support to those living with dementia and those caring for them.
Winner of the APCTC ‘Therapist of the Year’ Award in 2015 for her work with addiction, Cathy is also a published author and specialist contributor to the book ‘The Hypnotherapy Handbook’.
Cathy is a qualified hypnotherapy supervisor and has held the positions of Director of Supervision and Director of Ethics for the National Council of Hypnotherapy, and has also been their Specialist Advisor for addictions.

Nigel qualified as a Hypnotherapist in 2017, finally fulfilling an ambition he has had for most of his adult life. He chose to specialize in helping people suffering from anxiety and depression.
While working with a depressed client he discovered that one of the contributing factors to her depression was the stress of caring for her elderly father who had been diagnosed with dementia. Coincidentally, his mother-in-law had received a similar diagnosis and was now living in his home, allowing him to witness the effects of dementia at first hand.
After using his existing skills to support his client in caring for her father he was interested to learn more about working in this area, both with carers and those living with dementia. As a result, he enrolled in the Nightingale Diploma and is now delighted to be a Nightingale Dementia Consultant.
