About Cate Mackenzie
I am a Love and Sex Coach, stand up comic and Artist. I am a qualified Life Coach and Psychosexual therapist with a background in teaching dance and drama in community settings. Working with people since 1993 from diverse backgrounds (from partners in Corporations to actors and taxi drivers), ages, cultures and ethnicities has helped me to develop an understanding and a sensitivity to different needs and how to work with them. My coaching skills help us to create goals around communication, relationship and desires and my therapy training facilitates a deeper knowledge of attachment needs, sexuality and the body and how to work with breaks in relationship with the self or other. I work with a homeodynamic model which looks at how the body, mind, brain and emotions can affect and influence someones thoughts and behaviours. Once we can understand what beliefs or memories have affected the person or couple then there is a possibility of working to heal and integrate them. Once this has begun then the channels are opened to renew possibility and love again in their life.
This is about coming into a sense of love in a bigger way, of connecting with your journey and your purpose, who you really are and what you truly want as a person and/or as a couple. It is about becoming present and listening to your inner wisdom – and through this connecting to your own flow. This is a journey of letting go, of releasing past pain and daring to be vulnerable once more. You may meet your own resistance on the way and you may be afraid to take the next step. But if you can dare to keep going through your defences (in the right way and time for you) you may find you have opened to a beauty and a love you never dared dream was possible.
I have worked for many organizations including The Grove, Models One, The Mind Body Spirit Festival, Skyros, Mind, Help the Aged, The Bromley By Bow Centre, The Recovery Centre, The Camden Society and I have a private practice seeing individuals and couples in Chelsea and West Kensington.
I have appeared on Channel 5, BBC 2, Sky, Psychologies Magazine, Harpers Bazaar, Radio 5 Live and RadIo London among others. You can buy my Open Your Heart CD online and my paintings and cards through this web site.
