About me

Do you find yourself settling for less than you deserve?

Do people tend to disappoint you and let you down?

Do you give more than you get?

Life is hurting you and it’s highly likely that it’s all gotten too much. If you have seen one of my many videos, then its likely that something I have said has spoken to you, and your reaching out is no coincidence. You know that you can be a greater, better version of yourself, but finding your path has been hard. So, you’re stuck, in between a rock and a hard place, where entrenched patterns and annoying habits keep getting the best of you. You have dipped in and out of self-help books, watched Tony Robbins and Oprah, yet piecing how it all fits for you personally has you baffled. You’ve gone as far as you can alone and you need some guidance.  If that’s the case, welcome, you’re in the right place, I can help you.

About you

You are searching, you don’t understand how life got so complicated.  You desperately want to move beyond your current situation and you intuitively know it can be done.  You may feel that fierce forces have you going around in vicious circles, or you feel trapped, hemmed in and have got to the point where you have started to doubt yourself.  On really bad days, you feel overwhelmed and struggle to get out of bed. Wearing a brave face is no longer an option and uncontrollable tears stream down your face at the most inconvenient times. You may have read self-help books, gone on Yoga retreats, taken meditation classes even considered Tony Robbins ‘walk of fire’. You have tried your Doctors, swerved the medication and undergone the mandatory six rounds of CBT.  Yet nothing hits the sides and change seems elusive.

Or perhaps, you’re the strong, tough, resilient type and prided yourself on being self-reliant. Yes, life sent you blows, but you always bounced back. You found it hard to understand how people became ‘depressed’ and thought it was a sign of weakness. But this time, it is different, life has walloped you and left you bamboozled. You’re out for the count and you can’t fathom why you can’t bounce back? All your old coping strategies are redundant, nothing is working. You just don’t feel like you.  You have never asked for help. But you’re starting to get worried and can’t shake off the bad vibes. If that’s the case, the search stops here.

Are you at a point where nothing is no longer working and the way forward is not so clear?

I know that you might feel trapped and struggle to sleep at night.  The problems keep swirling around your head, has it really come to this? You can’t fathom how being a descent, kind caring person has caused you so much pain. Well, the reason is, at times, you’re a ‘yes’ person and have poor boundaries, that enables people to take advantage of you. Plus, you make numerous justifications for people’s nonsense and ignored bad behaviour all in the name of hope, hope that things will one day be better. So, you muted your truth, lost your voice and slowly you have lost yourself. You’re out of sync with who you truly are and life is grim. Your instincts may have warned you, but that truth was too inconvenient, so you ignored it and now there is no denying it. Your overwhelmed. Its starting to fully dawn on you, you’ve been taken for a ride and it hurts like hell.  If that’s the case, then I can help you to understand, this has been my walk and I can help you make sense of your situation.

About me

I am more than a ‘book smart’ psychotherapist and have transitioned from victim to victor. From unskilled cashier in an abusive relationship to straight-talking, no nonsense psychotherapist.  Back in 1997, I experienced a ‘yellow bag’ epiphany when retrieving abandoned stock at the Ikea tills.  An inner voice that simply said, ‘surely you can do better than this Keeley’? That ‘yellow bag’ moment changed my life and as bizarre as it may seem, my darkest moment has been my greatest inspiration.

If I can change, you can change too

1:1 Coaching Programmes
There may be certain personal goals you want to achieve, but for some reason you have fallen short; self-sabotaged (whether conscious or unconscious) or lacked the support needed in stepping outside your comfort zone.  Together we can create a clear plan and vision for your goals, a vision that promotes self-insight, strategies for dealing with set-backs and specific tailor-made tasks that safely supports you into the stretch zone. 

My coaching packages start from 10 sessions and are a mix of teaching, goal-setting, between session-tasks and progression reviews.  I offer coaching programmes on:

-  Healthy Intimate Relationships
-  Assertive Communication
-  Anger Management
-  Emotional Eating
-  Career Coaching 
-  Self Esteem
Support & Therapy Groups:

Self Love Revolution: 6 week program
