Performance & Developmental Coaching

September 2018 Update: Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my site! As of September 2018 I’m taking a break from my coaching practice.  Please feel free to look around the site, read my articles and check out my book.  Wishing you all the very best! – Kelly

Welcome. Coaching PhotoI’m Kelly and I’m a Sydney-based Performance and Developmental Coach. That means I help individuals create positive growth and change in their lives – whether in their personal lives, their work lives, in their relationships with others or in their relationships with themselves.

In addition to being a certified Personal Performance Coach, I am also a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Master Practitioner.  I see the combination of coaching (the conscious pursuit of goals) and hypnotherapy (the release of unconscious blocks) to be a powerful duo to propel you forwards in the direction you deeply desire.

In my coaching I help you:

  • Name your desires
  • Achieve your goals
  • Create a life that you love
  • Experience satisfaction in the journey
  • Gain deeper understanding of yourself through your values
  • Generate greater appreciation of your strengths
  • Tap into the courage to take action
  • Cultivate motivation through self-recognition and celebration

What is Coaching?

Coaching with me is a turbo-charged form of support. It’s like having a really great friend, who is totally there for you, to listen to you and support you, but without agenda or opinion. Our coaching conversations will allow you to enjoy regular time focused on you. Coaching creates a slice of dedicated time where you get the space, permission and encouragement to really explore what you want and how you can go about getting it.

Coaching also provides accountability. Over the course of a coaching series our coaching relationship will develop and evolve. Our coaching appointments allow you to create a consistent location for you to visit on a regular basis. This dedicated time for you to think about what you want, and take action to bring those desires to fruition, will keep you focused, energised and motivated to move forward in a way that before you may have only dreamed of.

Coaching will enable you to prioritise the important things in your life that may currently be getting pushed to the bottom of your to-do list.

Conscious and Unconscious alignment

One of the great benefits of coaching with me is that I’m a Clinical Hypnotherapist. That means I’m totally at ease in dealing with the unconscious mind. So as we’re working together, you may have decided consciously on a goal that you want, but for some reason you’re still blocked. This is where I can delight in using my hypnotherapist’s toolkit, employing tools that are designed to communicate directly with the unconscious mind so that we can release these unconscious blocks, allowing you to gracefully move forward.

But I don’t even know what I want

Coaching is all about working with goals. Sometimes people feel a bit unclear and say to me “I don’t even know what I want”. I can work with that too. If you’re currently unclear, foggy or feeling lost then we get to embark on a journey of exploration discovering the parts of your life that you enjoy as well as finding the elements in your life that just don’t fit. From there we work to create a life that fits you perfectly.

Why work with me?

I love achieving goals. I also know that setting a goal can be scary. I’m here to help you realise you are more powerful than you know.

My boutique coaching practice serves high-performing individuals to help them achieve the satisfaction they are seeking.  My client register is fully booked for 2017 but you can get on the wait list for my next open coaching slots from February 2018.

A word from past clients

Kelly is a highly resourceful, fun and deeply committed coach. She has a natural air of confidence and approachable authority which ensured I always had complete faith and trust in her – she was also committed to my own autonomy and had a genuine respect for my own need to reach certain conclusions and come up with ideas myself. As someone with a long history of personal development and my own interest in coaching, my standards are extremely high and I plan to recommend her unreservedly to people who I know may benefit. – Jess, Singer-Songwriter

Coaching sessions I have had with Kelly became an essential part of my journey towards achieving my goal. She has great rapport, she is a positive person and makes sessions fun and enjoyable, but same time is very professional. Coaching sessions with Kelly were always fluent and almost seemed effortless. Kelly has a great ability to ask the right question in the right time, which makes her coaching so powerful and beneficial for me as a client. My coaching experience with Kelly was invaluable, she has helped me to stay on track and stay positive and without her coaching I would have struggled a lot. I feel honored I had the opportunity to be coached by her. – Martina, Student

Kelly’s help was invaluable. The major impact was in speeding up results and maintaining momentum for the business challenge I set myself. She helped me clarify goals and commit to specific actions that I may have achieved otherwise but without a doubt in a much longer time frame and through a less smooth process. Her coaching also helped me find alternative solutions and back-up options for potential hurdles, therefore preventing me from dealing with disappointment and always making me feel a step ahead. – Giorgio, Marketing Professional

Kelly has been an absolute joy and her guidance has impacted me in unexpected ways. I have seen significant impacts in several of the areas that were targets of ours from our initial sessions. I feel that the coaching has helped peel back layers which at times felt like a setback but in actuality, were moving me and our sessions forward. I have fully trusted Kelly in my times of strife to allow myself to flounder and work out the problems, allowing more of the good bits in life to take over. I am amazed at the process as I did not know what to expect at first and would recommend it to anyone. – Julie, Pilates Instructor

Kelly was very helpful in highlighting the areas where I didn’t see my strengths and was able to bring those areas to my view and acknowledgement. We were able to set small steps towards my goal that gave me the confidence I was missing to move forward. – Bea, Marketing Professional
