Catie is passionate about the concept of 'human flourishing' - helping people thrive and grow, whatever stage of life they are at. Whether you're struggling to achieve a goal, trying to break a long-standing habit, or feel you're not achieving your potential in your studies, in Catie you'll find compassionate listening and practical suggestions for moving forward.
Having extensive pastoral care experience, Catie has a solid understanding of what makes young people tick and the challenges many face. She understands the need that each individual has to be seen and understood on their own terms. Catie has enjoyed academic success herself, and one of her great delights is not only experiencing "Aha!" moments, but sharing them with her students. Catie also believes that helping students develop a 'mastery' mindset during adolescence can contribute to long lasting well-being in later life.
