About Catherine Saxton-Thompson
You have always craved control over your life. Of course there are uncertainties but that is why you are always planning for the worst case scenario. You think of everything that can and probably will go wrong and try to figure out a way around these barriers. This constant analysis of potential threats makes it very hard to enjoy life. Others tell you to "just relax" as if it were that simple! You often find that even when you are doing absolutely everything "right," inevitably life throws you a curve ball and there you are stuck inside your head again, missing out on the very life you are trying so desperately hard to protect.
You want to enjoy and be present for your life: To live in peace with relative calm, while connecting in loving ways with your partner, family and friends. You want to look forward to the future and work with a clear mind. You want to continue to move through the world in an intentional way, instead of reacting to crisis after crisis. You. Want. To. Live.
I've got you. I specialize in working with people who are stuck in their heads, struggling with their thoughts and feelings. This is hard! Through our work you'll be able to live a calm, meaningful life even when our world is filled with uncertainty. You will be able to enjoy & experience more of your "here and now" and live a life that is directed by you.
