“I have never experienced someone who was able to connect and understand me so well. I felt valid, heard and important. I have strived to achieve more since working with Kelly, and succeeded. Our time together instilled me with confidence, and I am honestly so grateful.”
~ Belle Woodruff
“I felt super-clear after our session, energized to take things forward and so much better about myself and my situation. It was like a fog had lifted. Kelly has a way of cutting through the crap and getting to the nub of things. I would highly recommend working with her.”
~ Kate Brown
” I would like to express my utter gratitude for having had Kelly Burns as a mentor. Throughout my life I got to know many professionals, but never have I encountered someone like Kelly. She has helped so unbelievably with her outstanding talent, kindness and understanding that I would never have imagined. I was so excited before each session and completely full of hope and ideas after each. She understood how my mind works right from the beginning and made every effort to help me in every way she could in these sessions.
I have a view on all these things I have never had before and believe in myself more. I have met many psychologists but no one has given me such tools, which stem from self-love and acceptance, I feel so different about myself. I am leaving this experience so much richer, more optimistic and less scared of what the future holds thanks to her. It has definitely been the best experience I’ve had this year.”
~ Talia Mason
“Coaching with Kelly was a real turning point for me. I felt like Kelly really wanted to understand what makes me tick, and that she was genuinely on my side. It was such a relief to be able to open up to someone I had no personal links with so I didn’t have to hold back and I could be honest and say what I was really thinking. She helped me see myself and everything I had to offer with new eyes. She never judged me, and I came out feeling stronger. Kelly is a mine of information and gave me so many things to follow up on. The coaching was a big investment for me but one that has paid off. If you’re feeling stuck or confused as I was, you can’t afford not to work with her!”
~ Livvy Briar
“It felt like Kelly got inside my brain and just understood me perfectly. I have worked with several psychologists in the past and often felt worse afterwards, but Kelly understood me and made things so much better. She is professional, kind, and reassuring. I have made more positive changes in the last couple of months since working with her than I had in the last several years despite my best efforts. I am no longer stuck, things have improved in every area of my life, and I know I can rely on myself now to make good choices in the future. Thank you Kelly, I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to work with you.”
~ Tara Bennford
“My time working with Kelly was such a perfectly timed gift for which I am forever grateful for.
I met Kelly knowing that something needed to change in my life and though I had no idea at that point what that change might be, with Kelly’s gentle, loving guidance I was able to identify the steps I needed to take. And change was certainly what happened, in the most beautiful and fulfilling way.
When faced with fear and anxiety about doing things differently, Kelly kindly and thoughtfully led me back to what was most important to me. In moments of self-doubt and uncertainty she offered encouragement & was always rooting for me, allowing me to eventually do the same for myself.
Throughout our time working together I witnessed Kelly’s capacity for unconditional love, acceptance and lack of judgement, opening up a space where I felt safe to be honest, vulnerable and ultimately, to finally be myself. Possibly for the first time ever in my life – which was incredibly healing and the most amazing gift.
I am still benefitting from the work we did together years on and am always grateful for the work we did, and all that we achieved in a relatively short space of time. Kelly is the best coach I could have asked for.”
~ Tamsyn Hawken
“Completing the pre-coaching questionnaire was helpful in itself. We worked through things systematically and the resources and suggestions given were very helpful. Kelly customised her advice and way of helping and thereby, instead of reading a google article on psychology, I could immediately practice it in the most helpful way possible. She made the effort of getting to know me and my problems, instead of handing out a manual and that made a huge difference. It was beyond my expectations of what we could achieve in the time we had together.”
~ Rachel Hale
“Kelly is a very talented, very hardworking and enthusiastic professional who is also a wonderful person and really does want to help and not just do this as a job. I think with regards to this job the heart is incredibly important, because as good as one can be professionally, a person can feel when the heart is not there. So the connection I felt in terms of understanding my situation, the compassion, the willingness to help, generosity and kindness, and of course, the incredible knowledge all made you the absolute best person to help me.
Every session I received more and more tools and along with that more hope, optimism and insight. Your solutions worked because you perfectly understood how my mind functions, how it should be approached, what I would like to achieve.
I feel more normal, I feel more like those people I always looked at and felt jealous of because I felt like they were having a normal life with thoughts like ‘What am I going to do this weekend?’ I also feel more forgiving with myself, I love myself more and I try to view things in a less extreme way. I feel less darkness and I love life more.”
~ Emily M
‘Thank you! These two words cannot even begin to sum up how you have helped me to achieve my dreams. Without your skills and words of encouragement I really don’t think I would have got to where I am now. I can only say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are truly gifted – never stop doing what you do! Thank you a million times!’
~ Melissa Ottman
“As a previous client I can say that Kelly is a very engaging, encouraging and special person. Just speaking with her left me feeling relaxed, and so inspired and positive in all aspects of my life.”
~ Wendy Leggate
“Realistically there will never be enough words to express my thanks. I cannot thank you enough for your support and guidance. Working with you will forever be one of my highlights.”
~ Beatrice Coleman
“Kelly is super creative, kind and compassionate. She is gifted at sharing and conveying ideas and information in ways that are easy to understand; as well as in holding space for people, really seeing and appreciating their experiences. She is very sharp, taking in information and processing it quickly. She has great emotional and soul intelligence that increases her understanding of people and situations.
Kelly is warm, welcoming, and insightful, putting people at their ease. I adore her colorful, bright self, and her warm peaceful energy. She has a wonderful sense of humor and offers real focussed attention when she is listening. Kelly is really honed in on what you’re sharing and it feels like it really matters to her. As the person on the receiving end of that it feels super good to feel valued in that way.”
