The main tools Catherine uses with her clairvoyance are Tarot cards and the crystal ball. Catherine is a trained nurse and counsellor, and has been involved in many community self-help groups involving the Ambulance service, Surf life-saving, St. John's Ambulance and Sports medicine. She has been reading for many years and her accumulated wisdom holds her in good stead, specially when applied to her predictions.
