Exhausted? Overwhelmed?  Burned Out?

How many times have you found yourself in the Burnout cycle and promised yourself that you’ll make the changes, but never do?

And when Burnout takes hold, you find yourself asking how you got here. You feel lost, alone, and out of control and you wish you had gotten your sh!t together sooner.

The change has to start with you!

Your beliefs, your patterns and your behaviours need to change.  I’m not here to tick boxes and add more into your already busy and overwhelmed life, but if you want change you have to do the work.  

If you’re finally ready to break the cycle, let’s work together. 

About Me

I'm Kelly, the Burnout Prevention and Recovery Strategist, for leaders who are ready for a life beyond burnout. 

As a lifelong high-achieving, overperforming, recovering perfectionist who thrives under pressure, I know a thing or two about stress and jeopardising your wellbeing.  I reached Burnout twice. And I've spent the last 9 years creating strategies and techniques to stop me, and my clients from burning out again.


Everyone Is A Burnout Expert These Days, Why Listen To Me?

After I'd left my Corporate Exec role in 2013 to expand my own award winning People and Change Consultancy, I got a phonecall to say that my replacement had died.  I then discovered that the three Directors before me had all become seriously ill.  

And then began my quest. 

I studied, researched and qualified in Neuroscience, Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, and more to add to my existing qualifications in Leadership, HR, Organisational Change and Development, Psychology and Executive Coaching. I was asked to write the book on Overcoming Stress.  I started delivering talks and workshops on Mental Wellbeing. I thought I knew it all.

And then I reached Burnout again.

So I went deeper and really get to the bottom of it, and since 2015 I have worked with thousands of leaders from all over the world to help them prevent, recover from and Banish Burnout.

My work works.

Clients Include

"I wanted some help with my career choices and needed some help in adapting to leadership roles. Kelly has been fabulous in encouraging me to think about my beliefs and ideas from a different perspective and has given me the encouragement I needed to carry on"

Sophie Jasudasen
NHS Registrar

"Kelly is an excellent coach who mentored and guided me to a new level of personal development. I had ‘managed’ for many years, but had not yet focused on leadership. I was working in an management role and was considering aiming for the position of CEO. Kelly’s style is very consistent and empowering, which worked perfectly for me and has a way of working that teases out confidence and hidden skills. I initially assumed that I would be working with an adviser, but what I got was much more. Kelly has a skill to help to see things in a different light, I became focused on the personal and professional changes that I needed to make to become more effective and start making leadership decisions. I would not hesitate in recommending Kelly."

Rachel Morris

"I’ve been working with Kelly as my coach for a number of months now, and I have to say that she is absolutely wonderful. She has supported my growth and development, given me confidence and really helped me to see opportunities that I was letting pass me by. I chose Kelly as my coach because she has a fantastic background and wealth of experience, and her style very much fits with mine. Kelly has taken the time to understand my needs, my concerns and my motivators and the time I’ve spent with her has been invaluable. Kelly has genuinely been a huge part of what has probably been one of my most challenging years in terms of career and growth, and I couldn’t have wished for a better person to be at my side. I really feel that Kelly’s skill in getting to the root of the problem quickly (as well as her super engaging and authentic style) has meant that we have been able to deliver results very quickly, and I can see the changes in myself and my business. I’d highly recommend Kelly."

Michelle Hartley
HR Consultant

"I attended Kelly's 'Power Up22' event this week and have to admit I wasn't sure what to expect. I was blown away; I laughed (in a belly chuckle way), I cried, I was challenged, I challenged others, met some truly brilliant women and came away feeling like a different person. It was definitely a power-full day which has shifted the way I think. It was one of those experiences which will stay with me for a long time. Kelly facilitated the day in such a way that it felt safe right from the start, in fact I think I was in tears within the first hour! She has a real presence which radiates confidence, warmth and trust and before you know it you're doing things which you wouldn't have thought possible. I will be returning next year without a doubt and highly recommend it to anyone even half considering going. Power Up '23? I'll be there!"

Jo Andrews
Leadership Consultant

"I’ve worked with Kelly as my coach since July 2017 and her help and support has been absolutely invaluable. Kelly has enabled me to develop a greater understanding of my own ownership of each situation I am being coached through and I find it satisfying to come to my own solutions.Coaching has given me a huge amount of confidence as I now know that I do have ‘the answers’ and I’ve enjoyed working with Kelly to get to these. Not all the solutions I have come up with have worked (far from!) but with Kelly’s direct but supportive approach I’ve been able to then use subsequent coaching sessions with Kelly to reflect on why the solution wasn’t successful and put those leanings’ into practice for next time. I’d highly recommend Kelly."

Amy Sowinska
Global Head of HR

"I'd just come back from my second maternity leave and I didn't feel like I belonged in the workplace anymore. Turns out, I wasn't the problem. I made Managing Partner in six months and I am the happiest I've ever been."

Laura K
Managing Partner, Legal

"I absolutely love my job and I didn't want to quit, but I wanted more time for myself and to spend more time on my other passions and interests. I couldn't see a way to make it all work and thought I'd be let go if I really asked for what I wanted. My CEO was so supportive, and Kelly has helped me navigate a three-day work week and my life."

Jessica Warran
Executive Director

"I reached Burnout and turned 40 during the pandemic, two months before Kelly also reached the big 4-0, and I couldn't navigate my way back to me. Kelly helped me to see that I've been here all along, and now I'm working less, earning more, and I'm fitter and healthier than ever. Thank you!!"

Racheal T.
Founder and NED

"From our very first conversation, I thought Kelly was a mind reader, or psychic or something. I quickly came to realize that she just really understands you at a really deep level. I'm forver grateful for her support and I will be working with her again."

Jocelyn K.

"I didn't realise until I needed to change anything until I heard Kelly speak and I know instantly I needed to see if she could help me. One promotion, a big salary increase, a new house and a divorce later, and I'm so pleased I reached out, and that she said yes. "
