Caterina speaks to you with the language of the soul. That could be why after over 20 years of therapy, only she was able to reach me. When you are soul sick, no anti depressant or DBT worksheet will take you out of the darkness. Caterina is unique in that she doesn’t just hear you, she truly sees you; within 1 session, I felt like I wasn’t alone and that my trauma was not my identity. After 5 or so sessions, wicked habits like drinking or needing men fell by the wayside. After 20+ sessions, I learned that all the pain I had endured could be my instrument or vehicle to help others. Caterina’s compassion, intuition and experience will inspire you to not simply hope you will get better, but feel on a cellular level that you are getting better. She helps you find peace. I cannot recommend her enough.” Actress
“When I first spoke with Caterina, I had very little self esteem and no confidence. I felt like a failure and that I had no control. Her gentle and loving ways helped me recognize all the wonderful success I did have in my life, and the courage within me to step into my potential. I have been able to heal a depression that I struggled with for more than 30 years and to heal my disassosiation with reality. I no longer allow fear and anxiety control my days, now I lean into joy and acceptance. I am my own validation, my own safe resting place, and I am the deciding factor of the direction my life goes.
“I have had the privilege of working with Caterina over this past year while navigating some very difficult personal challenges. Caterina has a powerful presence and ability to know when to intervene and gently challenge a worn out storyline or negative core belief without short circuiting the necessary grieving process. She is highly intuitive and she had a very skilled way of bringing new and potent information forward in service of my growth and healing. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you Caterina for your love, wisdom and healing ways.” All the best to you Caterina,.
“In this world of instant ‘response, gratification, and information, this may seem to have taken a long time to write. Trust me, the work that Caterina has been doing for myself and for our family, has never stopped from the date in May, when, in a flash of an eye, our world changed. On that day a member of our immediate family was hit on his way to work, by a big ol’ SUV. The details are private. What needs to be shared, with deep gratitude, belief and love, is the incredible healing work that was done by Caterina daily, to keep our beloved on a healing path. Caterina was already my friend, and for that alone, I am grateful. And when we needed her, she was more than a generous friend. She worked tirelessly with us to ensure that each of us was able to support one another. Sit with that for a moment. She enabled us to break down any barrier, barriers of geography, injury, fear, hopelessness, and to instead, reach each other in powerful, healing love. It works and continues to work now, months after the accident. And when I fell into my own black hole over this, she pulled me out. Her abilities are remarkable. Her dedication is her gift to us. This world needs healers and the universe has given us Caterina. I continue to work by her stunning example of love, friendship, and faith. Thank you.”
Retired Business Owner
“Caterina recently helped me through a fairly major crisis. She did it methodically, rationally and calmly. She helped me see a truth I didn’t even realize existed. I made quite a change immediately afterwards and couldn’t be happier now. This lady knows how to talk you through it. I highly recommend her services. “
“I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started Life Coaching with Caterina. I knew I wasn’t happy with my life, and was even considering leaving my husband. Through professional, and compassionate coaching, Caterina led me through a series of deep conversations that resulted in self created action items. Each week, we tapped into my goals in life, that week, and even that day. I am proud to say, I feel content with my life, am excited to be married to my love and look forward the future. Thank you Caterina, you have a gift.”
“I was hesitant to begin with a Life Coach. I wasn’t sure how it would work, especially doing it over the phone. Once I started working with Caterina, however, I saw that the distance made no difference and my relationship with her was as immediate as if we were in the same room. She is all of the things that are said in the other testimonials: empathetic, patient, supporting. But what I appreciated was her firm encouragement, to keep learning, trying new things, new approaches. To be accountable. I feel that she has given me an excellent toolbox of strategies that will help me going forward.
“Thank you for everything you do & stand for. I look up to you so much & my life is better because of you.
“Caterina is able to strike a unique balance of careful listening and sharing her wealth of experience and ideas. Her coaching I believe, is the start of my journey into a different life. Sometimes we know what we should do in our hearts but don’t make the necessary changes because of fear, shame, pain, and guilt. Caterina gives you the push needed to move forward and know what you are doing is right for you and is its okay to move on. I am learning to take better care of me, loving me, and setting boundaries for me, Caterina is helping me set the foundation for this growth and success. Thank you.”
“Caterina’s gentle guidance began for me long before I ever formally worked with her in a coaching capacity. I can personally attest to her strength as a guide who helps you to determine your best path. The path is always there; Caterina helps you to clear away the muck so that you can see it for yourself. Our formal coaching sessions commenced nearly 10 years after we first met, during a time where I was struggling with self-confidence and anxiety as many good things in the present and painful emotions from my past seemed to collide. Caterina provided me with the tools that resonated with me in order to help me understand how to manage this. Through powerful visualization techniques, journalling prompts and meaningful conversations, I was able to lift myself out of a cycle of anxiety and learn tools to halt those that might emerge in the future. Thank you Caterina. I feel much stronger in myself today and am more graceful with those that I love then I did prior to us initiating our coaching relationship.”
“I’ve known Catarina for years now in the context of several circles both social and professional. She brings the same things to the table consistently: integrity, true empathy and a heartfelt desire and ability to help people see their own worth and develop it. I believe in Cat because she believes in people. “
“Thank you Caterina Barregar for the session today. You are my ambassador of embracing the human experience to live a life of Joy, Success, and Legacy. Each time we connect it is at the crossroads of a major breakthrough. You open my eyes to see what is truly within and the art of living a life of congruence that reflects it. You guide me through my own human experience to wear my truth proudly. I am eternally grateful for your generosity, support, and wisdom. Taking that deep breath… The best is yet to come! “

“Caterina has helped me in a way I’ve been looking for my whole life, no one has had the understanding and empathy and supportive energy you do. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you are doing to listen to me and help me. At this point you have my unending support and deep respect. Your understanding of my life condition is impressive beyond belief. Now I understand and truly believe you are gifted. I am not ready or willing at this point to go to someone else to discuss my life story again, especially when I’ve made such wonderful progress with you. Thank you. ”

“Caterina’s commitment, passion and heartfelt desire for her clients to realize their dreams takes her coaching skillset and insight to a whole new level. Having Caterina in your corner gives you the extra edge to act and create what you want in your life!’
“Caterina has super powers! I have been fortunate enough to work with Caterina and would recommend her to anyone looking to heal, connect, find strength and guidance. Caterina has this amazing gift at connecting with your heart, calming your mind, body and soul. She is also an incredible cheerleader, truly one of a kind. “
“I had the pleasure of working with Caterina for 7 months. I was going through some personal challenges and starting a new business. Both are intertwined and equally important. Caterina helped me overcome my personal difficulties using visualization techniques, meditation, breaking through mental blocks and years of outdated beliefs that did not serve me. She gave me the confidence and tools to move forward in my life and the courage to chase my dreams. On the business side Caterina counseled me on, marketing, understanding my target market, writing my elevator speech and tag line. She was my cheerleader. We meet people for a reason. I was sitting beside Caterina at lunch in Vancouver and from there a life long relationship was established. If not for Caterina I probably would still be stuck in my self-doubts and feeling I don’t deserve what I truly want in life. From the bottom of my heart I thank you Caterina. You made me feel beautiful from the inside out and the outside in.”

“Caterina has the ability to see through your words and into your deepest desires. She has guided me to see so much more about my self, after many years of other work. Caterina has many incredible gifts and a massive desire to help people feel powerful. I feel it every time we connect. After the first few moment of chatting with her the first time, I knew I needed her in my life. Her precision to assess your needs will blow your mind. If you are lucky enough to have crossed paths with Caterina honour yourself and work with her.
You’ll be so glad you did! “
“I have worked with Caterina for over a year now on various issues. Her coaching is inspiring and gives you steps and paths to follow to come into your own true power and spirit. This combined with her reiki has helped to conquer many fears and start to take steps to build an even more incredible life.

“Life coaching with Caterina was my first experience with coaching and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Caterina’s approach and style was very calm and comforting yet very effective and she very quickly managed to put me at ease. Throughout this process, I managed to learn a great deal about myself. I began to understand how my own thoughts and beliefs have paved the path I have chosen. How certain patterns have kept me from doing what I want to do. How I have kept myself from being all that I could be. So many insights…so many revelations. So much work is still required, but how empowering to know that I have the ability to shape my destiny. Now with Caterina’s help I have the tools as well. I would recommend Caterina and Imagine Life Coaching Inc. to anyone who is seeking to improve any aspect of their life. She not only has the academic qualifications but also the natural gift to help you understand you. For being a part of my spiritual journey, I thank you Caterina.”
I have a lifetime of experience in back-sliding. Only until the last few years have I been able to take 3 steps forward… and only 2 steps back (for a grand total of 1!). Mini victories for sure. To keep myself in a forward trajectory, I contacted Caterina and was able to work out a plan to fit my needs. To my relief, we were able to put in motion a step (forward) by step plan to keep me moving without the usual back-sliding. Thank you, Caterina, for giving me the vision of a “new reality” I will definitely be taking that onward and forward for many years to come.
“Caterina has been helping me for a few years now. She guides me through my troubles and empowers me to make the best decisions for my circumstances. She brings a calming peace to my world when anxiety is high. I would highly recommend her to anyone!”
A coach that can move you from ideas and intentions, through actions, to real results and rich rewards is worth her weight in gold. Caterina Barregar is that coach! I’ve experienced this with her as a Personal Coach and also as the President of our Holistic Chamber of Commerce chapter in Vancouver/Richmond. So happy to have her on my team, in more ways than one!

They say that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. I met a great gal in March 2013 while I was thinking about the idea of a life coach. Through conversation, she referred me to Caterina. While I anticipated that a life coach would help me do more and achieve more, I hadn’t entertained the idea that I might learn to LIVE more. My journey with Caterina Barregar has been full of ups and downs, twists and turns, good days and bad days, but she has been with me every step of the way. She has held my hand and helped me to hold my head high. She has, and continues to teach, guide, explore, and love me to a better version of myself. She has helped me to accomplish so much more than I ever could have imagined. If you are not living your best life, you owe it to yourself to embark on a journey with Cat. Love you to the moon and back!
