"I loved our time together and I learnt so much. I was a complete newbie to the screen writing world and Catherine walked me through the idea I had in an enjoyable calm way, as well as opening my eyes to a whole new world of script and writing - constantly sending bit to look at and new ideas. I could really feel Catherine's genuine enthusiasm."

"Cathy inspired me to go further with my creative aspirations than I ever have before. Then, she gave me the practical tools so I could tackle both screenwriting and piano, at the same time! Together, we mapped out the plan for progress and then I took the steps forward.  I can't thank her enough!"
