About

catherine-crawley_about_photo_700_v2
Hi, welcome to my website. My name is Catherine and I am greatly passionate about working within life coaching and complementary therapy; my natural desire to help people forms the core of my practice. I provide a caring and professional service to all of my clients; I believe in treating everyone as an individual and both my reflexology treatments and life coaching encompass a holistic and empathetic approach. If you’d like to have a chat about reflexology and life coaching please do get in touch.

THE PRACTITIONER

I’m a fully trained reflexologist and life coach and for many years I’ve helped a variety of clients achieve their physical and psychological goals in life.  I’ve supported my clients through the process of change through the healing art of touch therapy and the powerful impact of life coaching.  I’m passionate about restoring wellbeing (both physically and mentally) and therefore helping individuals achieve health, happiness, a fulfilling life purpose and meaningful relationships by stimulating the body’s natural healing system; reflexology and by un-tapping a person’s true potential; life coaching.

My passion towards my work and helping people achieve a happier and healthier existence rich with meaningful experiences and relationships is reflected in my on going training (I’m currently embarking on a psychotherapy course to further add to my coaching toolkit).  I’d consider myself as an empathic, congruent and compassionate individual and I believe in treating the whole person, psychologically, physically and emotionally, hence my holistic approach.  I believe I have a calming yet positive influence that will help you feel relaxed and at ease; my understanding and intuitive nature contributes to the organic therapeutic relational process and together we can work towards achieving your goals through both reflexology and life coaching to create a fulfilling and balanced life.

I have a particular interest in women’s health and wellbeing and as stress continues to permeate within our hectic lives I adopt a holistic and healing approach to helping women create a sense of harmony and balance both physically and  mentally and achieve goals relating to areas such as fertility, career changes, relationship issues and chronic conditions.  As a passionate Kundalini Yogi, my practice may also incorporate yogic teachings and meditations.

QUALIFICATIONS

REFLEXOLOGIST (MAR)

I trained at the London School of Reflexology and gained an ABC Diploma Level 3 in Reflexology and subsequently became a Full Member of the Association of Reflexologists (MAR).
