Cathie O'Brien  

  Gestalt Psychotherapy, Supervision, OD Consultancy, Coaching, and Training 



As well as organisational work I offer individual coaching. Coaching is different from psychotherapy in that it offers you the opportunity for personal development, excitement and growth. It helps you to become more aware of self, patterns and relational style and identifies blocks to your development. Coaching may touch on past experiences that may impact you now, but the emphasis is on 'what' it impacts now and 'how' that blocks your development now - building awareness and developing resilience. The individual seeking coaching is not in crisis or seeking immediate relief from a mental health concern.

As a sports women,in my past, playing and coaching indoor volleyball at a national league level, as well as representing England, I also have an interest in working with sports teams and individuals.

Some areas i may help you with:

  • Blocks to achieving your goals
  • Internal conflicts around achieving and success
  • Dealing with your demon that holds you back
  • Personal development
  • Surviving teams and competition
  • To achieve or not to achieve - a typical dilemma
  • Developing your presence - working in the zone
  • Personal development in the work place
  • Survival in the work place
  • Exploring self
  • Relational issues in the work place

My style is relational and I act as a facilitator who develops your awareness. I also confirm your experiences where appropriate enabling a greater sense of self.

My aim is to empower.


I am a BACP Coaching member and senior accredited as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist.
