Cathy's coaching journey
fear of failure
“Without this coaching, I certainly wouldn’t be as strong in life.”
Dear Cathy, I admire you a lot. I don’t need any more convincing. I admire the power you’ve achieved by changing as an HSP and also through coaching. Read more
I’m really happy I’ve taken this step. I can really see my personal growth. I’m working hard on my change. Change isn’t easy, it involves resistance. Without you, I couldn’t have walked this road. I really needed, and still need, this support. This way I can grow to be the best version of myself. Everyone benefits from this. I really advice taking this step. Do it, so you don’t have to get over-stimulated because of the influences of television, other people, movies, etc.
I’ve entered the course because:
1. I knew you’d work from love and you’d support us in a powerful way.
- I wanted to change and couldn’t go on this way. I had to empower myself.
There’s no better way to do this than with someone who’s been there herself! I know your mother, who personally told me this was something for me! She was right, haha! You’re a gorgeous and strong person. Just thinking about you, feels great! Your support, assignments and drive give me the power to grow!
Thank you, sweetie!
“From problem to possibility”
Getting up in the morning at the beginning of a new day, wasn’t an easy job for me to do. As an HSP, I knew I had a lot of stimuli coming my way.. Read more
To me, these were hurdles and barriers that drained all my energy and robbed me of my sense of joy in life. This happened every day, again and again. By living my life in a mindful way and not building stories around what happens, I now feel empowered. I get up in the morning and surrender myself to the fun, interesting events and challenges that are coming my way. I don’t judge the situation I’m in. I just let the moments flow.
“The dark night of the soul.”
I’ve had my fair share of low points and seriously challenging periods. As an HSP I lived them twice as intensely. Wow. From my education I got the idea that I could never do anything right. Read more
As an artist, I wanted to explore the world. But I couldn’t fulfil my passion. I got too many setbacks to endure. When my grandfather left us last year, that really got to me. It hurt losing my soulmate and letting my godfather travel further on his journey. It became overwhelming.
After this, I took a year off to help my partner. Up to the point where I had given myself completely. And nothing is a coincidence. You come across it through social media; getting to discover Cathy Spaas. Weeks before that, I had episodes of crying over the fact that something had to change in my life. It took me some days to pick up the courage to call Cathy for more info. That phone call had just the right hint of powerful catchphrases to push me over the threshold. That is how I started my journey as a ‘coachee’ around Christmastime 2017.
I’m grateful I can share this. My way of reacting towards the people around me, now comes from a place of tranquillity. The way I can balance out events now, is beautiful to experience. Week by week I’m regaining my passion in this life. My arts and music. Making people wonder and marvel. I can finally let the language of my HE-ART speak.
I’ve noticed that this programme includes just about everything. Down to the bone, it’s super and beautifully shown, very peaceful and serene by Cathy, my coach. Thanks to the workbook I’m making progress week by week. My soul rejoices. This inner work has strengthened me. And because of this I find myself in a relaxed mood.
I used to get angry over the consequences of the past (HSP), but now I can put things into perspective. I can now honestly admire myself for the progress I’ve made. And yes, life’s a lot more beautiful now, on this friendly earth’s crust.
Life didn’t go as I had expected. I lost myself. I lived other people’s lives. As I was taught. So, I began to search for my true self. Because the pieces didn’t fit anymore. I just couldn’t find my calling. Where had this energetic, imaginative, vibrant and colourful man gone? Hence this coaching programme.
Now I tell stories with my tunes through ‘sound healing’. I’m picking up the inspirational brush, colour and canvas. My painting, sounds and poems are a mirror for the spectator. This is so lovely to share. Colleagues are taking me along. Expositions are moving again. Exhibitions are taking shape, and so on.
I now have a different perspective on life. A renewal in myself. I erased the old information and have rewritten in new ink. Thank you, Cath Spaas. I believe in positive beauty. Even in vulnerable and fearful times. I believe that 1 + 1 = 11. Being one with your true inner self.
Be happy, even if you don’t know why. Find the courage and power that it’s there. Continuing in a meaningful way and working on your goals. This journey is highly recommendable to shape your own path. It made me capable of putting love into my company. I quietly close with this quote: “If bad things come in small packages, there’re big things happening everywhere!”
“Proud to have quit smoking!”
Cathy, at the end of June 2018 I was present at your event. I immediately related to everything you talked about that night. And so, I decided fairly quickly to enroll into your programme.. Read more
“Proud to have quit smoking!”
Cathy, at the end of June 2018 I was present at your event. I immediately related to everything you talked about that night. And so, I decided fairly quickly to enroll into your programme.
Now, at the end of the road, I can see the many things I’ve processed during this course and how much I’ve grown already. I’m not quite there yet, but I can see clear changes and I can see the steps I’ve already taken. I’ve even quit smoking! I didn’t even see that coming, and now I’m so proud of myself!
The biggest/ most important thing I’ve learned, is being conscious about how my sensitivity operates, realising when the reptile brain is taking over, how I can implement what I’ve learned, and how to be close to myself again. I’ve been able to integrate this into all aspects of my life and I’ll take this along with me for as long as I’ll live.
Throughout this programme I’ve also met like-minded people that live nearby. Of course, they were already there before, but now I’ve been able to allow them into my life as well. Even from my fellow groupmates I’ve learned a lot. I found a great deal of recognition with them, learned from them, but also gained a sense of belonging. I’m grateful they’ve come my way and oh how I’m proud of each and every one of the for the progress they’ve made!
Looking back on the last few months, it’s great to see what I’ve already achieved and where there’re still some room to grow. The burden of being an HSP, which I felt completely dominated by at the beginning, has lessened tremendously! I now experience HSP as a power! I’m not in my head as much anymore and I live from the heart. I feel more comfortable in my own skin. I experience more peace and balance and I’ve got more energy left at the end of the day! I now live life according to my own conditions and I don’t specifically need other people’s approval for that. Although it’s still nice when others hand me a compliment and get inspiration from the example I’m setting when I say: “Put yourself first!” I’m especially grateful for what I’ve achieved and I’m glad to have met you. You made me take this big leap for myself.
Also, I want to thank you for the choice you’ve made to help others. You’re going to get through to a lot of people by doing this! I thought it was inspiring to see that you’re not afraid to share your own vulnerability and that I got to witness your own personal growing process. I think you’re a good coach who’s honest and sincere. I would definitely like to keep in touch with you, even if it’s just to learn a bit more from you.
I wish you all the best, happiness and love for the future!
“This really pushes the right buttons!” I was a client of Cathy’s in 2018 and 2019.. Read more
She possesses a profound force and works with methods that are easily implementable almost always and everywhere. No fuss: “Shift your life!” is the slogan here. You learn how to switch your life around and Cathy knows exactly where the right buttons are.
“The right coach for me!” Are you the best coach? I don’t know. Were you the best coach for me? Read more
For sure! You were the right person! And at that exact moment, it immediately felt right, and that’s how it’s supposed to be.
What statement had opened my eyes the most? Well… “If you do what you’ve always done, you keep getting what you’ve always gotten.”!!! And that’s just the way it is!!! In everything!!! And what I know for sure, is that there’s still more of your power to work with, because it’s inside of you!!
You are top of the bill!! Thank you!
“With a deeeep sense of gratitude I say; “Wow!”. What an awesome lecture you’ve given! I’d like to share my experience with this expert: Cathy Spaas. Because she’s totally worth it! Read more
What have we learned?
- The label ‘HSP’ is not as important as know what the pitfalls are.
- The effects of HSP: over-stimulation, fear of failure, low self-image
- A child projects everything you do, also if we’re not nice to ourselves: What is it we say to ourselves? Aloud sometimes even
- Recharge yourself from time to time, find that connection with yourself, increase your resilience. Or next time you come home from work, stay in your car (even if it’s just for 2 minutes!). Then you’re ready for the next shit!
- HSP is a medallion that works both ways: There’s honesty and righteousness, but also being strong-willed and experiencing difficulties being the centre of attention.
- A great capacity to empathise is also a pitfall: having a hard time letting go of things. So be more aware of the here and now! Get out of your head and into your body!
- Provide a safe environment with peace, clarity and structure for your child. Give your child limited, yet undivided attention. Show that you’re really there, truly listen, and this will give you a great sense of fulfilment!
I’m kind of the dreamy type and the advice and assignments that Cathy offer are very practical and achievable to trigger me into reality. I’ve become more aware of my reactions in daily life as an HSP and awareness is the first big step towards growth. So, thank you Cathy!
