Hello, I’m Kellie
I am a Coach, wife, mum to two beautiful boys, oil painter, garden aficionado and a crazy obsessive reader.
Prior to taking the dive into coaching and deep study into adult development, integrated sexuality, love and relationships, I had a career in the corporate sector as a leadership and organisational development expert.
I love learning and am a really curious person. I’ve been working in the field of human development and change for 25 years. I have been a coach for the last 9 years. When I left university I worked in the corporate sector, in environments where there were constant change. Large scale change tends to produce a boiling pot of human behaviour. I found myself having to coach a lot of the leaders I was working with, before I even knew what being a coach was.
I have always been fascinated as to why some people keep learning and others become stuck in old habits and patterns they just cannot seem to break out of. I see friends struggling in relationships, for example, when one person is really growing and changing and their partner is not. I have worked with so many high achieving women who really struggle to be their authentic selves in the very masculine world of work because they can’t step into their feminine leadership. People get only a glimpse of the real person. They know something is missing in how they live their life but they can’t quite put their finger on it. Sound familiar?
I was one of those women myself and my own body stopped me and told me to slow down when I experienced a random mystery illness. It stopped me in my tracks; I pursued body based approaches to try and heal my body. I learned that our body has so much intelligence, if we just to listen to her. In responding to this illness and with my perspective on human behaviour, I have read voraciously, researched and taken study. I have distilled some key learnings, experimented with different approaches and kept an open mind as to what works.
I have worked with people from all walks of life who work in a wide variety of industries. I have multiple coaching certifications having studied deeply into adult development and integrated sexuality, love and relationships and I am able to work with this knowledge and implement it in a very pragmatic way. This means I’m highly credential to work with all aspects of you – mind, body and spirit.
I believe humans are multi-faceted and capable of expressing the widest range of emotions through different aspects of themselves. Our conditioning has forced us to hide and disown aspects of ourselves and we adapt so we can fit into the social systems we interact within. Whether it be a family system, friendship group, work culture we shrink ourselves to fit. Ultimately my coaching work is all about lighting you up and opening you up to all the aspects of yourself, stripping off those masks you are wearing and giving you all the tools to shine in the world.
I’m focused on how you think, what you feel and what you do, really giving you a strong ability to be aware of your thoughts and feelings and the expression of those within your body. I love seeing women thrive and become really comfortable in themselves and proudly shout out to the world who they are.
