Catherine has lived a very interesting and varied life. To begin with she has lived and worked in 3 different continents, and 5 different countries, spending a considerable length of time in each of them. Because of her various cultural life and work experiences, she is very comfortable with diversity, has a deep respect for individual cultures, the individual person, and the gift each one of us bring to where we live and to our daily lives.
All these experiences have given her a wide perspective from which she continually draws. Her work combines a wide knowledge of the body with intuition and compassion, while being mindful of the body mind, and spirit connection in assisting the healing process.
Before returning home to Ireland, in the summer of 2018, to her native County Louth, she spent 26 years in California, worked as a hospice nurse while studying spirituality, the Rosen Method: Bodywork and Movement, as well as other forms of body therapies.
Coming home to Ireland was important to her for many reasons, but particularly as she wanted to introduce Rosen Method, this beautiful and gentle body therapy and movement, to the many parts of Ireland where it is not well known. This important work is already well established in the United States, Canada, UK, throughout most of Europe, Scandinavia, and as far as Australia and Russia.
Catherine feels especially grateful that she was taught by Marion Rosen (founder of Rosen Method) in Berkeley California in the early 90’s. She practiced Rosen Method for 25 years in California and became a teacher of The Rosen Method of Movement in 2014. Catherine is very passionate about this work and wants to spread the ‘good news’ about Rosen Method here in Ireland during the remainder of her precious years of life.
She recently opened her private practice in Blackrock Co. Louth and gives workshops locally to introduce Rosen Method to her Irish clients.
