WEIGHT LOSS COACHING
My Approach to Weight Loss
I want to help women end the struggles, frustration, despair, around weight loss. We do this by focusing on gaining health and nourishment, starting right now.
You probably have heard that about 95% of diets don’t work in the longer run. Most diets start with the idea that it is in your control to lose weight, and so it is your fault if you fail. This ‘blame culture’ helps fuel our society’s weight stigma and discrimination.
Diets can also, unfortunately, play a critical role in the development of eating disorders.
Sustainable weight loss is really is not JUST what are you eating and drinking. If your eating is affected by your life, then this is about your whole life.
Movement is a big part of this. Whether helping you integrate activity through coaching conversation, through to Personal Training sessions together, I am here to help you integrate movement to become a consistent, enjoyable, part of your life.
My position on weight loss as a coach is weight neutrality. I work from a non-judgemental anti-diet perspective. I aim to boost self esteem and body respect, whilst helping women become more nourished. Size is only one measure of overall health.

“I am so grateful for the professional resources, advise and support that Cathy has shared with me during our sessions. Cathy listens with kindness, compassion and care and provides a safe space to further explore.”
“I have lost weight, but the best bit is I’ve learnt so much about myself, socially and personally, it’s made me so much happier in every part of my life.”
“I can’t thank you enough. This started out as a journey about food/weight and has turned in to a whole different journey. But I’ve no doubt that the end product will be the changes that I set about to achieve in the first place, with a much brighter future on every level ahead of me.“
“Time spent with Cathy can really be life changing as she helps you identify what you want/need to change & then helps you step by step get there.”
