I think the greatest thing about coaching women through their health and wellness journey is that my clients become my friends and I learn just as much from them, as them from me. We cheer each other on – it’s a double inspiration whammy! I’m so encouraged, energised and excited for every single one of the women I coach and Cath Grigg is no exception. This heroine is a Super-Mum-Beauty Therapist-Wellness-Woman-Extraordinaire and organic living advocate. She inspires me to put the best quality food in my mouth (her recipes are amazing!!) and the best quality products on my skin. The way Cath speaks with gratitude about her family, her passion for her business and helping others, makes me smile every time we chat. I am so excited for all the wonderful things ahead for this lady.
So, first things first. What is your dream?
To providing people with quality service, experience and knowledge about skin health and how our lifestyle and diet choices directly affect current and future condition of our skin, body and mind. To help them understand the benefits of organic skincare and the incredible need to make time for themselves away from their daily routine and get in touch with their inner self.
What makes up your lifeblood?
Firstly without hesitation is my family. They are my life and soul and have provided me with more joy and opportunity then I could have ever imagined through life, love and business also.
I also love to share my gifts to help people feel amazing and encouraging them discover their best possible self. I have a soft spot for the struggling, I value all things positive and love to help people find their own light in the dark.
What has been your biggest fear to date to overcome?
Depression, I felt I would be crippled by it forever! But as the days unfolded my fear became my strength, as hard as that those times can be I would not be me without them.
Being healthy means that I…
Provide my mind and body with the best choices I can. The state of the mind always dictates the true health of the body and without true self love and balance you can never truly be healthy. I indulge in real foods and clean eating and try to eliminate processed and unkind foods, exercise regularly and nurture my mind through paint and food art.
To me, the word ‘healing’ means…
To nurture a soul and allow it to embrace itself and allow the inner love to shine through.
Where is your ultimate travel destination?
Give me sunshine, clear waters and sand beneath my toes and any old place will do!
What DRIVES you?
The self-gratitude that comes from helping people feel better about their own unique situation. Whether that be through relaxation of a facial or simply lending a kind ear to troubled heart, knowing you have brought positivity to their day makes mine.
Choosing love over fear means…
Be true and honest to yourself despite the opinion of others. Listening to your inner voice and being brave enough to follow it.
I feel really creative when I…
Have a new project! Food, paint, exercise, work, planning an event, I can get carried away with anything really
If you could tell your 14 year old self one thing, what would it be?
Calm down, it will be ok. TRUST YOURSELF!
Can you share with us your secret pleasure?
A sleeping baby, a trashy TV show and a quiet peppermint tea. Xxx
