Catalyst-Thinking was co-founded by Cindy Galvin and Marian Bourne.

We work with CEO’s and successful leaders who believe that the number one asset in their company is their staff.  We provide real-time, practical solutions that help to deal with almost any stress ‘in the moment’.  

Since stress is now recognised as a major factor in chronic illness, the need to optimise health – mentally and physically – is crucial for any company that wants their employees to be resilient and co-creators of their success.  This means that it can no longer be a box-ticking exercise, presenting power-point slides about stress or teaching meditation and mindfulness.

I know what stressful working environments do to health.

I worked for over 25 years in the global energy trading industry, starting with launching a nuclear fuel brokerage company at 29. Long hours, frequent travel and constant stress led to insomnia.

I changed careers determined to help other global executives learn how to improve their mental and physical health, and am now an executive coach, clinical hypnotherapist, trained in meta-health and best-selling author”

“For over 20 years I have run a  practice for pain and chronic health problems which lead to developing a Coaching Consultancy and Stress Management training. I’ve seen how long-term mental and emotional stress has a damaging effect on health and how CEO’s and senior leaders are exceptionally good at taking care of their careers and their families, but less good at taking care of themselves. Eventually, they pay the price with their health. I too paid a price for not successfully managing stress which resulted in burnout and time off work.

My mission is to give CEO’s and senior leaders the skills they need so that hitting burnout becomes a choice! “

“What gets measured gets managed”  Peter Drucker

  • We believe that whoever you decide to work with,  it’s crucially important you have ‘before’ and ‘after’ measurements.
  • We believe in numbers so we use analytical fitness and recovery tests so you can monitor your progress.
  • We believe that seeing is believing so laboratory stress tests give you proof of your cortisol levels.
