Kia Ora, Hello everyone!

I’m based in beautiful Orewa beach, Auckland, NZ. I travel globally and work one to one and on Zoom.

I love encouraging and inspiring people to live more joyfully today, and to live bigger! To manage their mindset!

Life is short, time is limited, so accentuating the positives, and minimising and managing the negatives especially related to bad stress, trauma and lack of confidence, can be transformational!

My special interests are in managing mindset for maximum joy and high performance, especially helping business people flourish at work and at home, despite the pressures. I enjoy applying learnings from neuroscience, and the strengths and evidence-based outcomes of positive psychologists and the Gallup organisation. I’ve been a teacher, real estate business entrepreneur, (22 real estate branches and 350 salespeople) and a business and life coach for forty years. I'm family orientated and have 5 grandsons.

I use the practice of Gratitude as a strategic tool together with Hypnotherapy and Havening touch, to build people up: to grow confidence, to help create great organisational culture and increase productivity and profitability- helping people and organisations achieve positive change as quickly and easily as possible.

Thoughts become things. Emotions and feelings matter. Positive self-talk is critical. Imagination is more powerful than knowledge. Relationships are key. To “live bigger” requires being mindful and embracing and savouring life with an open heart, mind, brain and body, as all are interconnected.

Through coaching I specialise in helping business owners, their families, partners and teams enjoy life more by:

  • Reducing stress, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma- including partner and personal separations, addictions and grief
  • Growing wellbeing through a positive mindset
  • Building resilience and confidence and optimising results and outcomes

I have an MBA, and am a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Certified Havening Practitioner. I'm skilled in leadership, management, coaching and sales. I’d love to hear from you, to assist you, and to colab with you!

Ka kite ano. See you later.

My experience with Cathy was something I can’t barely find the proper words to describe it. I was extremely sceptical about everything that isn’t “medical” and I must admit I was wrong. I have literally abandoned myself in a state of relax, I switched my natural way to be very protective of myself in a state very similar to when I was in my mother arms. Totally safe.
I must say that the experience was influenced by the fact I know personally Cathy and I have an immense respect and admiration for her. I wasn’t able to do this with anyone else. The experience itself could be compared to a sequence of “waves” embracing me and a deep sense of being “cleaned”. Cleaned under all the aspects/layers of my inside. I felt the warmth of something very similar to Love. After I felt like sleeping and I had a very short but deep nap. I felt recharged and, I want to repeat, cleaned. I was blessed with this experience. Thank you Cathy, love you.

Havening addictions

Over the past few weeks we have done 3 sessions together and I have seen tremendous results mentally, emotionally and spiritually since our first session. I have never done anything like havening before and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of peace it gave me after each session. It's given me the ability to go about my everyday life now without horrible thoughts and feelings from the past. (which is something I never thought I would be able to do).
I am looking forward to putting into practice the techniques of physical touch with my hands, arms and face with myself when those feelings do arise with what I was taught through the sessions. Cathy, thank you so much again for the past few sessions. Your soft approach and talking about everything openly brought me a lot of comfort and ease within the sessions.
It was an incredible experience and something I will be highly recommending to a lot of people in the coming future.

Childhood Trauma

I have had a number of traumatic events as early as childhood, shape my life. These events have led me to live a life of fear with a low sense of self. I have relied on other people’s acceptance and opinion of me to shape my life. I was recommended to try Havening with Cathy Allen by a very grounded friend who is an intellectual and factual. I was surprised at how highly she rated her experience considering she applies logic to most things in life. I was therefore open minded when I attended and open to experiencing a form of healing that I didn’t fully understand. Cathy was extremely kind and warm and I felt comfortable within 5 minutes of meeting her. Cathy asked me questions about what I wanted to achieve and let go of. She explained the process and was professional while being compassionate at the same time. After an hour of Havening I felt relaxed and very tired. I went home not being able to gauge any benefits. It was only in the following days that I was utterly amazed at how deep trauma seemed to magically disappear. I haven’t tried to overthink how Havening with Cathy has worked for me, but I’m extremely grateful it has and the deep ache of trauma has been lifted. I feel free in myself and accepting of myself. I am looking at life without fear and even excitement. High praise well deserved. Thank you Cathy.

Havening for bereavement

Thank you Cathy for the Havening sessions. It’s been really helpful in reducing my stress levels, guilt and unhappiness following the suicide of my husband a few months ago. I feel more confident in myself and more positive about life ahead. It is such a simple but effective therapy. And it's great to have the support of a GP for this good, non-drug therapy. Your skills and personality make it so good. Have a great weekend.

Dr's recommendation

I will be forever thankful to Cathy for introducing me to Havening. She has opened another treatment modality for my patients to avail themselves of. As a GP, it can be difficult- sometimes running out of options. Cathy is very special. My patients attest to her expertise. Clients report “she is quite a natural at her job.” Her compassion and knowledge makes her a perfect therapist practising Havening. I highly recommend her to suitable patients suffering from any form of “mental anguish” that is not fully responding to medications.
