Elevating the Leadership Conversation

Helping high functioning leaders on their journey to become their deepest, most expanded selves.



Higher Mindfulness focuses on leadership actualization: helping people grow the best of themselves.

Leadership happens from the inside-out. It recognizes there’s no separation between personal and professional. If you want to grow as a leader, you need to grow as a person.

Leaders often focus on inspiring others, but true inspiration comes from inspiring yourself. If you inspire yourself, it spreads to those around you.

That’s the kind of growth that powers performance – and makes you happier and more fulfilled. It fuels a deeper quality of living and working. Creating the kind of leadership that inspires and lifts others.



At Higher Mindfulness, we challenge assumptions and offer fresh perspectives and insights to help you reach the next level of success in your mindset and in business.

We help you identify blind spots and challenges, uncover opportunities, and get crystal clear on your priorities. We incorporate experiential learning that changes you quickly and to the core.

It’s not just coaching and consulting. From paradigm shifts such as moving from self-as-enemy to self-as-ally, to the science of brain states and flow, advanced problem-solving and decision-making to emotional models that are more empowering than EQ… it all adds up to transformation that is quicker, easier and more profound.

Benefits include enhanced business performance and goal attainment, boosts in motivation, focus, peace and creativity, more positive relationships and mentoring, greater ability to self regulate, and more confidence in decision-making – as well as new opportunities and choice points you couldn’t see before opening to you.


People-centered Leadership: The Next Level

People-centered leadership realizes that helping people become better versions of themselves is good for business.

The idea is simple – and backed by research.

Not surprisingly, it can be challenging in practice.

Post-pandemic it’s even more challenging. Expectations have changed.

Workforces are called to orient to employees as people rather than workers, toward personal growth rather than making sure people ‘hit the numbers.’

The focus has expanded to providing an exceptional work – and life quality. Feelings are in the ring as never before. As are personal empowerment, autonomy, holistic well-being, psychological safety, and shared purpose.

Next level human-centric leadership requires investing in leadership development. Development from the inside-out.

Because you can’t give what you haven’t developed within.


Elevating leader consciousness:

Helping leaders get out of their own way and connecting to their potential, so they spend more time in their genius zone and can help others spend more time in theirs.

What clients say

“I noticed my mind going back to the usual problems, but not being able to get a charge from them.

That’s it, simple but strong!”

Kathleen Germany

“Phenomenal! I felt fabulous and am feeling the residual feelings of being relaxed and super energetic.”

Debbie Reynolds About Face Image Consulting, Inc.

“Just prior to a major speaking engagement I began to feel very ill physically. It was a real blessing that Catherine was there and that I was able to benefit from her healing gifts. I went from thinking I’d have to cancel to being able to carry on as if nothing had happened. It was remarkable. Since I first met Catherine many years ago, I’ve witnessed her help many people with physical and emotional challenges.”

Monique MacDonald Discover Your Sacred Gifts

“Catherine’s depth of ability and resources are impressive…[she] is an excellent listener – she can pry when needed, make sense of what you’re saying quickly and capture the essence in order to take it where it needs to go. She really made it easy and certainly opened my eyes to potential that I couldn’t see on my own.”

Glenn Duxbury Glenn Duxbury & Associates Building Inspection and Consulting

“Catherine was able to look at my company objectively and see areas where I could improve and dramatically increase my business. She has the ability to see what any owner of a business can’t see for themselves. This is an invaluable resource and asset to growing your business and taking it to the next level quickly. Catherine was bang on and her information extremely valuable.”

Jan Janzen, President Women Empowering Women Inc.

“Her research has hit the nail on the head: the recommendations have made sense for us to adopt and the reports are standing the test of time with enough depth to allow us to grow as we become more sophisticated.”

Harry Parsons Bufo Inc.

“[Catherine] brings a high level of expertise and experience to the table. She was inclusive and accommodating to the diverse nature of our group. We wouldn’t hesitate to retain her services again.”

Mark Johnson Fisheries & Oceans Canada

“Sherlock [Ink] was able to take one of our projects from a vague concept to develop a refreshing new direction that has formed a solid foundation for us moving forward.”

Edwin Hubert, Director Stewardship Centre for BC

“After a session with Catherine I went from being filled with anger and hate for another individual, to understanding the anger, releasing the anger, to being in one of the most Zen like calming states that I have ever felt. And the best part is, the effects are permanent! I no longer hold that anger and hate for that individual.

Thank you so much Catherine for all your help, I could not have done it without you.”

Tyler D

“The most powerful elements of the workshop were the exercises that revealed the culture of our organization -both negative and positive, strengths and weaknesses, what we have to offer that is unique.

It really expanded many of my narrow perspectives around branding, supporters, and marketing. These exercises revealed things we assume, take for granted or don’t see. Hearing from others on topics that I have an engrained perspective about was very revealing.

It opened all of our eyes to critical branding/ marketing/organizational issues we haven’t being paying enough attention too or understand very well. I definitely saw the importance/value of creativity as a fundamental part of our work.”

Misty McDuffee Raincoast Conservation Foundation

“Catherine is a strong communicator – both clear and concise. ..[She] also opened up my view by giving me new ways to think of ideas and concepts.”

Christine Kutzner CK Counselling

“[Catherine’s] presentation style and well-researched content left me with a much greater awareness.”

Jane Porter Metro Vancouver
