Hello. I’m Catriona Mitchell, creator of BRAVA.

I’m very happy you’re here.


This site is in two parts:

1. BRAVA Magazine:

BRAVA Magazine celebrates feminine intelligence and creativity via intimate and candid conversations with some of the world’s most remarkable writers, speakers and filmmakers; all of whom are taking risks, and making a valuable contribution to society / culture / the environment through the expression of their voices. Guidance on feminine thought leadership is offered too, for the woman who wishes to embody her truth, find her voice, put a powerful story or message into the world, even start a movement. BRAVA’s content is daring, edgy, sometimes light, at times dark, distinctly feminine, and always inspirational. Published online (only) each month, BRAVA Magazine is free for all readers. Join our newsletter to receive the latest.

2. BRAVA Coaching:

Dedicated to empowering the feminine voice, Catriona Mitchell offers coaching programs to help you find your voice and confidently share your message. You will learn to tune into your deep, instinctual self; embody your message; let go of outworn habits that are holding you back; express yourself with vocal intelligence and creative spark; and step forward as an inspired feminine thought leader. Catriona will lovingly (and humorously) help you identify and dismantle your blocks to expression, so you can be an effective spokeswoman for your creative work / business, bringing your entire self to the table, rather than a censored or dimmed-down version of who you are.
