She has over 40 years of training and experience in the health sphere, and is passionate about the areas of mental health, wellbeing and counseling. Currently Cate is mostly involved in education and writing related to these areas. In the year 2000, a Churchill Fellowship allowed her to travel to the UK and Europe studying the primary care management of anxiety and depression.
Over the years, Cate developed a strong interest in women’s health, including mental health and wellbeing. She wrote a book about men’s mental health which was published in 2020, and whilst visiting communities and talking about the book in 2020-21, many women attended the talks. When Cate asked them about a need for a similar book for women, the resounding answer was ‘YES’
