I met Caitlin during Selena Soo’s Get Known Get Clients live event in New York. Caitlin has this gift of capturing the room when she speaks. She is smart, a dedicated soul, an inspiration! You can see the passion she has for her work in her eyes and she genuinely wants to help others become better versions of themselves.
Caitlin Padgett is a lifestyle coach for successful women who struggle with alcohol. Whether the goal is to control their drinking through moderation techniques or to eliminate it completely, she offers an individualised program for women find freedom from alcohol, on their own terms.
Here is what we talk about:
For many years Caitlin felt like she was living a double life.
On the outside, she was an accomplished international advocate, living a jet-set lifestyle that took her around the world working on interesting projects. She projected confidence and a sense of adventure and fun. Yet inside she was struggling.
She was making good money, but spending a ton on after work cocktails, late nights out, bottles of wine as nightcaps, not to mention the pharmaceuticals she thought she needed to keep anxiety and sleeplessness at bay. For years she had been hiding from myself, it was becoming harder to do so. Looking at myself in the mirror, I couldn’t ignore the effects of drinking too much the night before.
But she discovered...
You can redefine your relationship to alcohol, instead of it defining you.
“ I now have a life worth remembering every second of.
A life that I WANT.
Instead of copious amounts on bottles of wine, bubbly and cocktails,
I spend money on delicious, nourishing food.
Instead of hazy hungover mornings turning into wasted days,
I wake up with energy, clarity and enthusiasm.
Instead of numbing out stress, anxiety or accumulative shame,
I feel and I deal, and I know that I can handle whatever comes my way.
Instead of intimacy instigated with liquid courage,
I have deeply meaningful intimate relationships
Instead of “pre-gaming” with my girlfriends by downing a bottle (or two) of bubbly before even heading out the door,
I have beautiful rituals that allow my inner beauty to shine. People say I glow!
She goes on to say;
“It’s possible for you to have a life you want too.
You can have control over your relationship with alcohol. Life doesn’t have to be messy, overly dramatic, or filled with nagging anxiety and self-doubt. While there’s no magic pill, no quick fix, there is a way.
A way that honours and celebrates your individuality.”

Dominic is one of Australia's top drummers and is an in demand session musician from Sydney. He works with Sony Music Australia, Warner Music Australia and has performed with artists such as:
Tim Omaji (Timomatic)
Nico & Vinz
Dom regularly appears in television shows and features including X-Factor, The Voice, The ARIA Awards, Young Talent Time, The Morning Show, The Today Show, Sunrise & Mornings. He teaches privately, upon request, and has hosted popular collaborative jam sessions/residencies, where Sydney's creative and performing arts community are of constant attendance.
Dom's first encounter with playing the drums was by getting in trouble with his primary school teacher while banging beats on his little school desk as a child, back in the Philippines. The teacher saw the potential and talent behind the energetic troublesome boy and cultivated it by letting him share his gift, playing a solo marching snare piece for the annual school festival that year. That ignited a flame and passion that would never be extinguished.
Having started with the guitar at the age of 9 and the bass after moving to Australia at the age of 13, Dom has always been exposed to music of all styles, growing up and coming from a family of musicians. He gained experience throughout his teens playing for his youth group all around Australia. These years of being self-taught were very crucial to him, allowing him to find and harness his natural strengths as a musician and discovering his own style, voice and character. Dom would play anything and everything by ear when he listened to the radio/TV, while keeping a special place in his heart for melodic rock.
After being the most prized all-around musician in his high school, Dom finally found home in the drums once again, deciding to make it his full-time instrument. The movement, physicality, style, raw expression, musicality.. everything about the craft made him fall in love with the art of drumming.
Dominic was offered a Bachelor of Music course at the Australian Institute of Music despite not having his Higher School Certificate. During the years of studying and gigging, he has toured, performed and recorded with some of Australia's leading and upcoming talents. He has learnt from some of the world's best musician educators and his studies and exploration has led him to finding a deep passion for experimental music.
Dcd is available for private lessons and is currently regularly playing with Cyrus, SSJ & Jeremy Gregory.
He is proudly endorsed by Sonor Drums, UFiP Cymbals & Silverfox Drumticks.
A couple of years ago, Don had a heavy feeling of incompletion and couldn't shake it off. He had made a career out of playing music in the "city scene" but it felt selfish and distant from the people who raised and nurtured me in the arts. He missed the peers who mentored him and breathed the same passion for music, without ANY money or politics involved.. Just for the pure love of it.
Finally, some friends and Don have the opportunity to give back, reconnect, (hopefully) inspire, and just have a fun old time sharing music with anyone and everyone; the youth groups, the churches, the schools and multicultural families.
"After all, some of the heaviest mf's come from the west ;)
Please join us for some nights of good vibes and let's make the scene back home alive again ;) The West Sessions." Says Don!
