About Me

Hello! It's Catherine here, and I am a makeup artist who uses The Desire Map to bring out your soul desires through to your face and into your photoshoots and special events in and around London and the southeast of the UK.

Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?


Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?

I like to Desire Map in lightening bursts over about a week whenever I want to release old plans and goals that aren't working out and bring in new ones to light my way - no more than 60 minutes, often shorter periods, always curled up in bed with a scented candle and some dark chocolate, maybe some music. When you Desire Map in lightening-short sessions, then you maintain a level of depth, clarity and focus to spread all your desires across the page without drowning in aaaaalllllllll the good and bad feelings and situations, which inevitably lead to confusion and frustration in the process - and never to your Core Desired Feelings!

Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.

Ooh I have so many! Most recently: being an Alchemist has forced me to become honest about what I wanted - to become a makeup artist who uses The Desire Map to bring out the desires of my clients soul. I use my clients' Core Desired Feelings as the basis of the look and feel of the makeup they'll have for their events and photoshoots. I had been conflicted about this for some time because there is a strong makeup-shaming movement in the wellness, spiritual and self-care circles, but...I am an Alchemist, I work in Alchemy, and I have proven through my work that I can use my methods to bring out the will of your soul and express that visually on your face. I have even healed one client's past negative experiences with makeup and photoshoots through this work. My CDF plugs me into my soul work and (gently!) pushes me to carry out the will of my own soul - and that is a wonderful way to live!

Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?

I am devoted to bringing to the fore the uniquely beautiful light of your soul...even if I have to help you dissolve your shadow boundaries to help you see it. They may say that beauty is only skin deep, but that's a lie. Nothing is more beautiful than a person living out the will of their soul, and I consider it my job to help you uncover your soul desires and bringing them all the way through to your surface, and beyond!


In the time I worked with Catherine, I got a clear snapshot of my desires and how The Desire Map works. I loved calling home my desires, and the Desire Map in my mind is the prerequisite step to any serious vision board, as it allows you to put solid foundations for your goals and dreams. - Sophie, http://sophiecasenave.com

It was an exciting, gentle experience full of awakening wonder working with Catherine. My greatest takeaway is that despite my ever-changing list of what I do, the heart of what I want from my life stays the same. It was a great experience and I'm definitely wiser about myself for it! - Carla Watkins, http://runawaydays.co.uk/
