Do you feel like you should be somewhere else by now in your language learning?
Do you feel like you're doing everything you can but you're still not making the progress you want?
If you're regularly feeling stuck, overwhelmed, powerless and unconfident,
it's quite possible that perfectionist behaviours are holding you back.
So you've come to the right place!
I love helping Corporate Leaders and Entrepreneurs like you grow your confidence & communication skills
to take your career or business to the next level... in English or in any language.
(if you're not sure whether you're a perfectionist or not, read about some of the main behaviours here)
I know what you want:
You want to be able to chat, discuss, present, negotiate, sell.... yourself, your ideas, your company.... clearly, confidently and authentically.
You want to make a difference, create an impact, leave your mark.... in any language.
You know you need more than just a language teacher to help you do this, you need your own Personal Coach.
Someone who will encourage, guide and help you to show up, step up and speak up. Someone who you can trust to get the unique support you deserve, who believes in you and your potential, perhaps even more than you do.
But this time you know you need a new approach, something different, because the things you've tried so far haven't got you the results you want.
So let's look at a greener, healthier, more "you-friendly" approach to learning, which is...
Meet Your Coach
Hi I’m Kelly.
I'm a British "city" girl who has chosen a greener lifestyle in the South of France. And I'm also a recovering Perfectionist. Read more about my journey here. You could say that I'm a "good girl gone green"!
I offer 2 different services. I help Corporate leaders and Entrepreneurs like you to:
- go green in their language learning (i.e. learn in a healthier and happier way). It doesn't matter which language you're learning, your confidence and results will grow when you know how to manage your mind. I call this service Linguistic Life Coaching and as the coaching is given in English, it is for anyone who is learning a foreign language who can speak English at intermediate level or above.
- connect organically (more naturally & deeply) with the English language and grow your communication skills. I call this service Green Language Coaching and it is for learners of English at intermediate level or above.
In other words, with me,
- you develop your mindset and find your flow
- your communication comes alive
- you AND your business/career can grow.
Because our ability to communicate well with others is closely connected to how we communicate with ourselves.
But we are often our own obstacle: we doubt ourselves and fear takes over. The feeling of "not good enough" prevents us from speaking up. We miss golden opportunities to shine and we feel powerless or we give our power away to others.
Through my different programs, I guide my clients to manage their mindset, grow in confidence and apply the language in the clearest, most natural and effective way possible, from the inside-out.
Ready to achieve that global impact you desire for you and your business?
Let's have a conversation together to see how I could help you.
I realized that maybe what I really needed was something different. I needed to improve my self confidence to push myself beyond my deep barriers. We started coaching sessions and, step by step, I became who I really wanted to be: someone that isn’t scared of changing, who rises to the challenges and who doesn’t choose always her safe zone. Looking behind I see all the successes I got since Kelly is coaching me and now I couldn’t do without her!
Working with Kelly is a real pleasure, her professionalism, patience and interests in life are making her one of the best Coaches I’ve ever met. For me it was a real gift to find a mix of professional coaching and English. She supported me in my life challenges, like to join the EMBA program, and also shared my interests like psychology education. She is very passionate and her great sense of humor made me wait for each lesson. Her proper way of giving feedback helps to keep focus on language improvement. Her highly prepared way of working helped me with discipline. My teenage son will also get his language enhanced with her professional support. Thank you Kelly!!!
Kelly is much more than an English teacher, she’s really an English coach in the sense that she’s able to focus our main discussion on my personal interests and little by little we are sharing a lot about my way of life, my thoughts, my desires and my fears. And I have become aware that I can express myself in English, with depth. I can express a lot of ideas and emotions, I can share points of view extensively and discuss matters. I am so happy to realize that I have some good English bases which have been sleeping in my brain for 20 years, and Kelly has managed for the past 4 months to show me them and to improve them. The consequence of this is that I have gained more confidence. And gaining more confidence, I am happy to speak in English, I speak more, I enjoy writing in English too, I watch movies and I listen to radios programs… Well, I am surprising myself. I am waiting for this day when I will be able to dream and think in English, and I am sure that it will come soon… because after each lesson, Kelly sends to me a lot of tools to improve my vocabulary and my grammar and it’s so useful!
And the most important thing is that Kelly is really attentive. Her kindness, her gentleness and her constant positive support mean that I am waiting with pleasure for each lesson. Thank you so much Kelly for your help and your sincere enthusiasm!!
I have acquired a lot from Kelly, she is professional, she is able to help me to elevate myself to the next level.
Kelly is the best English coach that I have ever met. She is a good listener. She listens deeply and observes, then illuminates what lies beneath the surface that holds me back or moves me forward.
She helps me to clarify my dilemma/problems through a list of insightful questions at and after each coaching session. After each session, Kelly sent a very detailed session note to follow up. She is amazingly resourceful and focused. It was really a fruitful journey. Kelly helps me to create more space for myself, and now I have greater peace of mind.
I always recommend Kelly to friends who have a hump to get over or just need a third party to help them get unstuck.
Grâce à Kelly, sa patience, ses cours très bien ciblés, son authenticité … j’ai vraiment progressé au point de me lancer le défi de partir en terre anglophone seule. Je me suis super bien débrouillée.
Thanks to Kelly, her patience, her personalized lessons, her authenticity… I’ve really improved to the extent that I even set myself the challenge of travelling to England alone. It went really well.
A great pleasure to share 1:1 course with Kelly. Her approach is very hopeful and exciting. After only 10 lessons, I feel more confident with my English! Thank you Kelly!
I have been working with Kelly for a whole year. For me this is a great achievement. Kelly is energetic and proactive, able to catch and develop an interesting and useful discussion. She is not only an excellent teacher of English, but also a coach in self-development. Tips and explanations after each lesson that Kelly sends by email help to consolidate.
When I was assigned to a regional position after I had worked for local roles for the past 16 years, I realized that the situation was much tougher than I anticipated mainly due to my English proficiency and gaps in cultural diversity. I want to tell ‘be prepared before you get into that situation’. However, if you are in a situation similar to mine, you may have a hope. It won’t be too late if you can find an outstanding coach like Kelly. I learned how I can speak better in concise and succinct way, how to make successful presentation and how to obtain desired outcomes from fierce debate and competitions. I prefer to call her a coach, instead of an English teacher, because she carefully listened to me, healed me and provided solutions even when my mental collapsed. Now, I am somewhat confident of my English skills, because I now know how to speak concisely, listen carefully and understand context, ask at the right time and how to continue the whole conversation. I’m so glad I have been able to regularly study with Kelly for the past 3 years, and I will continue to improve my communication skills with her help.
Thank you, Kelly for encouraging me. I’m feeling more confident than before. It was very kind teaching and coaching. So helpful for me.
My favorite teacher ever!
I’ve been studying English since I was 6 and I can definitely say I have never met a coach like Kelly! Her lessons are extremely fine-tuned to student needs and skills and this makes the interaction very comfortable. After only two months I’m feeling more confident and definitely able to understand native speakers better and to speak in public. She’s the person you have to choose if you want really to stand out from the crowd and make an impact in English!

You know what I’ve found are the 3 most difficult steps in language learning and life? Showing up – leaving the safety of our comfort zone Stepping up – to become the person you want to be Speaking up – being willing to open your mouth and let words come out I’m speaking from experience. […]
Everyone is afraid of failure in some way. Perfectionists in particular. Whether it’s in our language learning or public speaking, failure generally looks something like this: messing up and looking silly. saying the wrong thing. not understanding or being misunderstood. not finding the right words. not being good enough. not connecting. … We’re secretly terrified […]
