Because we are all energy.
In my world, we are all connected – plants, animals, humans, land, sea, sky, rock formations, spirits – all of nature is family, nature is home…
In my world, nature is the collective, a cooperative of shared energies that swirl in tandem and work together, a magic, vitalities that connect, synchronize and orchestrate the wonderful beautiful complete synergistic experiences we all aspire to live and breathe.
In my world, the senses are alive, not just the five senses we are taught, but the sixth sense of intuition, the deep and abiding inner knowing that guides us to the gifts on offer.
And my job as a spirit doula in my shamanic practice is inquiry, nurture, enlighten, infuse and imbue the memory of those gifts within you, reigniting the magnificence of your senses, expansion of smell, the sweetness of love and the mystery of sour; the rapture of sight, the ecstasy of sound, the bliss of touch, the pleasure of taste and the security of knowing your own intuition – your senses, cleansed of energies from the past, opened to the purity of your soul, to devour and consume and experience…
So how does all of this work?
Because my work is about restoring wholeness, I am going to give you an overview of what I do and when I do it.
In my work, I see the manifestation of what we know as “illness” – physical, emotional and or mental illnesses as spiritual and energetic imbalance.
The purpose of any work is to remedy those imbalances through a process of ceremony, recommendation, blessing, ritual. Observance, practice, plant wisdom, animal wisdom. Whatever technique or combinations of methods used, my role is to gather and utilise whatever is necessary to address physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual needs.
You'll feel like she's an old friend.
“There is no single word or phrase to describe Cate’s expertise, commitment and passion for her work and clients. That’s because she is a person of many talents! In short, she gets it. She gets people, she gets the situation, and she gets results. And she’ll do it sensitively, professionally, empathetically and realistically. And you’ll feel like she’s an old friend while your project is completed.”

She balances both heart and mind!
“Cate is a brilliant mentor, leader and coach. Her down-to-earth approach allows her the ability to see beyond the external and get right to the heart of the matter. She has no time for the BS you see with many online coaches and her experience & commitment to best practices puts her a cut above the rest. Cate balances both heart and the mind and helped me to understand that my quirks were actually my greatest strengths and that I could embrace all of who I am and put it to work to make a difference in the lives of those around me."

Intelligent, warm, and compassionate.
“Cate was the first person to open my eyes to the reality that I was in an abusive relationship and that clarity has given me the confidence to seek help and set legal and emotional boundaries that are vital when dealing with a controlling and high conflict co-parent. I wholeheartedly recommend Cate for her unique insight, intelligence, warmth and compassion during the most trying of times in what can be a cold and complex system.”
