Coaching Testimonials

My experience of CAT informed coaching with Liza has been nothing short of transformational. It has allowed me to understand relationship patterns which have enabled my success in my professional role, in addition to those that have limited me.  Having supportive, reflective space has enabled me to re-evaluate my values and goals in a high-pressure environment, at a pivotal point in my life. With Liza's input I have made exciting, positive changes for my career whilst also getting closer to the elusive work-life balance.

Supervision Testimonials  

Liza is a fantastic CAT supervisor and I feel really grateful to have been supervised by her individually and in groups for so long. She represents a lot of what I like and am drawn to about CAT, being compassionate, dynamic, creative and explorative. She has a sophisticated and nuanced knowledge of the processes of development and change, for both patients and supervisees. She inspired me to train as a CAT Practitioner and supported me through both CAT Practitioner and CAT Supervisor training. I really valued her understanding of nurturing processes. She provided me with a balance of containment, support and importantly the freedom to explore, trial and grow as a clinician.

I had the privilege of being part of a supervisory group led by Dr Liza Messing. During the 4 years of being supervised, I found Dr Messing to be a very dedicated and committed supervisor. Her insights and contribution to understand the case material was great and well received. She has a facilitating and containing style of supervision. She is knowledgeable and well informed in CAT theory and practice. She helped facilitate my journey through CAT supervisory training and I am indebted to her for her help and support. I cannot thank her enough.

I have had the pleasure of attending Liza’s lively therapy supervision groups for a number of years now, starting when I was training to become a CAT Practitioner. Liza has a containing yet rigorous approach, which I value immensely.  I feel able to bring any question or concern I may have, including at times some really rather complex and confusing clinical scenarios.  In my experience, whatever is brought is met with thoughtfulness, clarity and wisdom. I would highly recommend her as a clinical supervisor.

I'm so very honoured to have been working closely with Liza during the last year. She is a master of holding space, deeply listening and insightfully pointing out places where I have been blocked, leading to much greater growth than I could have expected in such a period. Liza is a powerhouse of transformation. Anyone working with her is lucky to receive the gift of her incredible expertise, wisdom and compassion.
