Training and consultancy for organizations:

What do young people in care need? 

They need people who have the skills to understand their trauma history, relationships, vulnerabilities and strengths, they also need people who will listen and advocate for them, helping them to become more capable individuals now and in the future.  

For workers to provide this type of service to young people, they require training, coaching, and a supervision process that attends to their personal and professional development.  

Wings for Success Coaching and Consultancy provides training packages based on your organizational needs using theories, practices, and evidence based tools from residential child care, social work, psychology and sociology.   


Whether you require training for individuals or groups, Wings for Success Coaching and Consultancy can help you develop staff who are not just competent, but consistently work to excel in every area of their practice.

Cate stands out as a professional.  She is not only specialised in direct work with children and young people, she has also managed to combine this experience with investigations that have supported the design of public policy for children and young people in need of specialised protection.

Cate's insightful approach helped to build on my confidence enabling me to identify and achieve my goals.  I had previously found this to be too overwheming to achieve alone.  Cate enhanced my ability to think positively, to notice my everyday achievements and acknowledge my strengths and successes.

I would highly recommend Cate as a coach!

Cate made me aware of my value in so many ways, she helped improve the quality of my thinking, and my interpretation of life in general.  


Cate was professional in her approach, sympathetic, and easy to talk to.  She made me feel at ease from the very first session.  I would definitely recommend coaching with Cate!

My day to day living has truly benefited from coaching with Cate. I would   certainly recommend her to anyone, whether you have specific problems, need  encouragement or professional  guidance  like me. Cate has certainly helped me find a good balance in my life and not just in one area but in many.  

Thank you Cate!
