About Me: Catherine Dixon: Coach, Mentor, Therapist.
I help people choose to upgrade something in their life that will make a positive difference to health, relationship and career. What qualifies me to do this? My skills, my experience and my genuine desire to see my clients lead happier, healthier lives.
I am accredited in shiatsu, acupuncture, clinical mindfulness and chi kung. This gives me a deep understanding of the energy system from an eastern perspective.
I am qualified to practice cognitive hypnotherapy, NLP, HeartMath, EFT and TFT. This gives me an understanding of how our mind, thoughts and beliefs influence our energy and well-being.
I am also an accredited coach, organisational facilitator and trainer.
I have worked with and in organisations for the whole of my career (30 years) in the UK and abroad. I have worked with C-suite professionals, senior management, entrepreneurs, media presenters, musicians actresses, with consultants, with fast-streamers and apprentices. I have worked with people recovering from addiction, homeless people wanting to find employment and people wanting to start again after major set back and personal tragedy. This has taught me about human nature: how we behave when we are afraid, out of control, and threatened. It has taught me how prolonged stress is our number one enemy because it downgrades our ability to think rationally and creatively and destroys our nervous system making us vulnerable to illness.
I have led over 700 national events since 2012. I am currently a KPMG associate and facilitate workshops on Resilience, Coaching and Inclusive Leadership, Building Effective Teams, Managing Reactions to Change, Diversity and Unconscious Bias. I have worked with many government agencies including the NCA, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Home Office and HMRC. Within these organizations, I have facilitated peer group learning and away days. I was commissioned for NHS England run bespoke workshops on values, wellness and self-care and creating healthy environments.
Through facilitating these events, public speaking and working with thousands of people from all walks of life, I have built a significant portfolio of experience and specific skills related to optimal wellness, healthy, reciprocal relationships and fulfilling careers. I have set up and run a multi-practitioner wellness centre, my own limited company, and several high profile collaborations, partnerships and business ventures.
