My passion is guiding business people and leaders to help them accomplish what they have set out to accomplish and become who they were meant to be.

In my 30+ years working with emerging and seasoned leaders as a Psychotherapist, I’ve seen individuals radically transform their organizations and their lives.

All of us, at one point or another, have stopped and asked, “Is this it?”

Sometimes we’re looking at our lives and we realize that this wasn’t what we planned or signed on for. Sometimes we’re looking at ourselves wondering how did we get lost along the way.

It’s in these moments that we need to step back and look at what’s really happening. Using trusted methodologies that deliver meaningful results, I work closely with you to help you get clear on what you really want.

When you find that the actions that brought you success in the past aren’t working anymore, I’ll help you develop the new skills and practices that will lead to your next success.

 I can give you access to the insights and resources you need to renew your strategy, transform your business systems, and get the results you’ve been after. Drawing on my experience counselling executives and leaders, I can help you align your thinking and behaviour to lead the way you know you can.

Don’t wait. This is your one life.

If you know it’s time to have a new conversation  —  one that will help put you back in touch with your true self and put you back in control of your life  —  just fill out the form and Cathy will get back to you right away.

Working with Cathy has liberated me from some of the past traumas I was carrying in my everyday life.

I can now focus better on my task in front of me and be more aware and present mentally for my family and surroundings.

Awakening to my surroundings is something that has been messy and beautiful. Having the “AH-HA” moment, tapping into a subconscious mind that drives action and re-action is beyond incredible. Being able to slowly rebuild a life on distorted memories – completely linked to overwhelming sensations beyond my control is fascinating, and to be honest, mind-blowing. These limiting beliefs that have been shelved have surfaced and are finally seeing the light. The light that I have given myself to breathe. Peacefully. Being open and ready to receive this information has enabled me to take control, consciously of my choices, behaviors and of my life’s journey.

Without Cathy, these mountains that I have been climbing wouldn’t have transformed into paths of stillness, serenity and love. Cathy uses cutting edge strategies and methods to shift the brain physiologically, emotionally and mentally!

Cathy has been a great coach to us here at Boxing 4 Health and has helped us to grow our business and be more confident in our management roles. She is very friendly, responsive and professional. I look forward to carrying on a working relationship with her even after our coaching time is complete!

I’ve had trouble sleeping for most of my life. Anxiety haunted my waking hours and when it was time to rest, it seemed it was open season in my subconscious. The worst nightmares imaginable played through my mind until I would wake sweating and screaming. By using e-brainsense audios before bed and combining them with a restructuring of limiting beliefs, I was able to quiet the thoughts and feelings raging through my mind. Finally, I could rest at night rather than waking to feel more exhausted than before I had gone to bed. Learning to relax and access my inner resources is a lesson and a journey I will embark upon with joy for the rest of my life.

Cathy is amazing and really helped me focus on my strengths when I was wondering what my next steps were in my career. She helped me stay focused on the positive things I could offer and see how much I really could do to improve my current career path. She is very positive, energetic, creative and supportive.

Cathy was invaluable to help me define my goals, chart my course and to provide me with tools that I could use every day to remain focused on what I wanted to achieve. Within months I had followed up on all I learned and was able to advance without leaving my current job. I have used the knowledge to help my own employees. I will continue to use all I learned in the future.

“I have been going to Cathy for a number of years on and off. Cathy was able to gently and successfully lead me to my own answers and help me to accept and make peace with my past. She is a knowledgeable and incredibly competent therapist. I have recommended her to a number of my friends who also found her to be effective in helping them to deal with emerging and difficult life issues.”

“As someone dealing with the frustration of an unknown illness and self-esteem issues, I found sessions with Cathy Lumsden invaluable. Her support in helping me deal with my emotions through various techniques, from discussions to visualization to EMDR to her Brainsense techniques, show her genuine commitment to using and developing tools to help her patients both during and outside of office sessions.”

~ Senior Economist

Cathy has provided a safe and sacred space for myself and at times my family, to not only express ourselves but to develop strategies to handle life’s situations. We all now use some valuable tools that calm us, reveal fresh perspectives and support better decisions. Cathy’s wise counsel has helped us face and address family dynamics and develop deeper connections we all want.

I would highly recommend Cathy Lumsden if you’re considering a career change and need some advice, or if you’re struggling with choices you are facing in your life. She is extremely astute and identified issues that were holding me back within just a few visits. Cathy deftly helped me navigate my personal history and helped me focus on my hopes for the future. With the aid of personality assessments, she helped me discover possible careers of interest that would be a good fit for me. With Cathy’s guidance, I decided to pursue a career change, and with Cathy’s suggestions on how to gain on-the-job experience, and the education I’m pursuing, it has worked out fantastic!

Thank You Cathy!
