Many of you visiting my coaching website have been following me over the years listening to my talk radio program, The Catherine Bradford Show. For many years (nearly eight in fact) I had the extreme pleasure of bringing listeners cutting edge interviews with experts in a wide variety of fields from around the globe. I consider these years of conducting interviews my 'prep' work for the training and skills needed to be a competent and dedicated professional life coach. But my work and passion for helping others didn't begin in my broadcasting career. Looking over my shoulder it would appear as though my entire life has been prepping me for what I bring as a tool belt to my clients. My passion only grows stronger as I learn more from each and every client.
many years ago I trained with the well known Fowler-Wainwright Institute of Professional Coaching and obtained my Professional Coach certification. Integrating what I had learned from my many years on air interviewing leaders in the personal growth industry with my training in coaching created a strong and powerful platform from which I began my coaching practice. Some years into this private practice I saw the benefit of becoming certified in clinical hypnotherapy and trained under two well respected masters programs; Dr. Matthew James, a highly-sought after trainer and educator in the field of NLP and Hypnosis, and Dr. Larry Volz, world famous instructor for my Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy certification. Incorporating the techniques of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming into the tools for coaching offers my clients a higher advanced approach to creating change.
When I am not working with clients you can find me outside in my garden or tending to our array of animals. A lifelong gardener, I find working in the garden offers me the balance I need to 'practice what I preach'. Nearly seven years ago I moved, with my twin daughters, to Southern California (Temecula, better known as the So. California Wine Country) leaving behind life in Seattle, Washington. I have loved being back in California and find waking up each day to sunshine is exactly the environment I need to keep me thriving and rejuvenated.
Thank you for taking time to explore my website. Please feel free to contact me via email if you have any questions or comments. I look forward to having the opportunity to talk/meet/help you on your own journey. Catherine Bradford, CPC, CHt
