More About Linguistic Life Coaching

Do you feel like you have limitless potential and the only thing holding you back is your confidence in English?

You're a Business Executive or Entrepreneur who wants to:

  • improve your English to take your career and business to the next level.

And not just that. Because you're a wholehearted leader, who understands the importance of connecting more deeply with yourself and others, you also want to:

  • improve your communication and life skills to their full potential.

 

Imagine if you could do them both at the same time? And:

  • Take a step back, slow down and reconnect with yourself.
  • Get clarity on what you need to do and how to get there so you no longer feel stuck.
  • Create more time in your busy agenda for what matters, including English.
  • Make meaningful progress in English whilst enjoying yourself and focusing on what is important to you.
  • Be able to express yourself clearly, concisely and confidently about your company, products or services to an international clientele.
  • Know how to connect with others more easily to build stronger relationships and make more impact.
  • Feel more confident, energized and "on purpose" on a daily basis.

 

I know you want more out of life and out of your English. You want to thrive and make a difference. Leave your mark.

You know you need more than just an English teacher to help you do this, you need your own Personal Coach.

Someone who will encourage and guide you, who you can trust to get the unique support you deserve, who believes in you and your potential even more than you do.

You've come to the right place!

You can either choose to continue feeling frustrated, insecure or stuck because you're worried about:

  • not having the time for English lessons (so you either go to your lessons on automatic pilot and spend your time thinking about all your to-dos or continually postpone your start date);
  • making mistakes or being misunderstood, not understanding or lacking the words you need (so you continue to miss those golden opportunities);
  • competitors or colleagues communicating better than you (so they overtake you in your career or business field);

Whatever your fears, they are making your valuable thoughts, views and ideas about your business go unheard or unsaid.

In 6 months’ time, you’ll probably feel even more frustrated by your lack of progress instead of making a difference in your life and that of others.

Or you can decide that enough is enough!

You see this as your wake-up call to finally make a change.

Take that step.

A step that will take your career, your business and your voice to the next level.

It's time for you to step up and speak out more - in conversations and discussions, at meetings and conferences, over lecterns and dinner tables.

We often doubt ourselves. We're perfectionists at heart. That feeling of "not good enough" is pervasive and prevents us from speaking up. We give our power away to others.

In today’s world, we might be connected 24/7 but we’ve never been so disconnected from ourselves. Information hits us from all sides at every hour of the day. Fake news, FOMO, the race for "more" add to the constant noise and distraction.

You can't get there (where you want to go) from here (where you are).

You need a different type of service. A unique and empowering collaboration that helps you rise above the noise and look inside, not outside, for your answers, so that you can feel more alive and thrive.

 

Meet Your Coach

Hi I’m Kelly.

I help high-flying business executives and entrepreneurs like you connect more deeply with their English, with themselves and with others so that they can become the captivating international leaders they were born to be.

Because leading others is deeply connected to leading yourself.

I know how challenging life can sometimes feel. Before becoming a Certified Language Coach & Transformational Coach, I spent almost 20 years in an international business career, racing and running from one activity to the next in a blur of busyness.

But I felt that life could be experienced differently.

And I think you feel that too.

Through my different programs in English, I coach my Clients around their challenges, projects and wellbeing. I encourage them to focus on less rather than more, to eliminate the non-essential. I help them think and communicate more meaningfully and mindfully about their purpose, their businesses, their lives. I accompany them in discovering more about themselves, experiencing the language fully so that it has a ripple effect in their own lives. I support them with encouragement, humour and honesty, guiding them to apply the language in the most authentic way possible, from the inside-out.

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!!

Anne-Paule Beïs, France

I have acquired a lot from Kelly, she is professional, she is able to help me to elevate myself to the next level.

Vicky Mak, Hong Kong

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.

Jovy Lai, Hong Kong, Freelance Writer

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. Durand, Teacher, France

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!

Elodie Labit, PhD Student, Calgary

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.

Aleksandrs Minajevs, Latvia, Board Member & CEO

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.

D.C., S. Korea

Thank you, Kelly for encouraging me. I’m feeling more confident than before. It was very kind teaching and coaching. So helpful for me.

E. Park, Senior Legal Counsel, Seoul

My favorite teacher ever!

Anna Makarova, Expatriate, Thailand

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!
