Want To Stop Allowing Perfectionism To Be An Obstacle to Your Success In English?
Do you feel like you have great potential, like you should be somewhere else by now in your career or business?
Do you feel like your perfectionism is holding you back (procrastination, fear of criticism, imposter syndrome...)?
- You're a Corporate Leader or Entrepreneur who wants to grow your English to take your career or business to the next level.
- And because you're a wholehearted leader, you also want to grow your communication & life skills to their full potential.
So that you can discuss, promote, negotiate, sell ..... yourself, your ideas, your company..... clearly, confidently and authentically.
But how can you do that if you keep waiting until your English is perfect...?
Do you recognise yourself in any of these behaviours?
- You worry about what others might think if your English isn't perfect or "good enough";
- You stop yourself from speaking up at meetings/on social media and shy away from presentations for fear of judgement;
- You put off taking action until you can "be" more by taking more courses or reading more books;
- You regularly lose yourself in non-essential busywork to feel productive and efficient;
- You spend a lot of time trying to get things perfect to appear "credible" and "useful";
- You quickly lose motivation when your efforts don't seem to pay off or if you don't manage to stay consistent 100%;
- You lack self-confidence even though you try to appear confident;
Imagine if you could:
- Get clarity on where you want to be and what is stopping you in English;
- Learn tips and techniques to move from a fixed mindset towards a growth mindset;
- Stop comparing, judging and worrying about what others might think if your English isn't "perfect";
- Change your perspective about what you're capable of and the type of person you are (change your thoughts, beliefs, behaviours);
- Feel more empowered to express yourself clearly, concisely and confidently on a wide variety of topics whether in person or virtually;
- Know how to talk about who you are and what makes you or your services different in a sincere, authentic and impactful way.
In short, stop feeling stuck, stressed, overwhelmed or frustrated, and finally make meaningful & long-lasting progress in English.

Meet Your Coach
Hi I’m Kelly.
Let me introduce myself. I'm a City Girl who has gone "Green"! And I'm also a recovering Perfectionist.
In search of a healthier & more ecological way of life for myself and my family, I left my international business career in Monaco for the majestic green mountains of the Pyrenees. I've still got my beloved high heels and enjoy experiencing city life when I want to, but I know that I thrive more in the calm of this natural environment. I've been able to slow down, explore and create space for what matters in my business whilst building our ecological house. Read more about that here.
What do I do?
I help Corporate leaders and Entrepreneurs like you learn ecologically (healthier and happier) and connect organically (naturally & deeply) with your English so that
- you can develop a growth mindset,
- you make the language come alive and find your flow,
- 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. The feeling of "not good enough" is pervasive and prevents us from speaking up. We give our power away to others.
Through my different programs in English, I accompany my clients in discovering more about themselves and building up their confidence in a healthy, harmonious and happy environment. I help them to experience the language fully, to connect from their heart not their head, so that it has a ripple effect in their communication, their business and their lives. I guide them to apply their English in the most authentic way possible, from the inside-out.
Ready to achieve that global reach and sustainable impact you desire for you and your business in English?
How can I help you?
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!

Public speaking in a foreign language. What does that evoke to you: an adrenaline rush or a battlefield? If it’s the second option, this article is for you.

Mindful Minimalism: How To Streamline Your Communication In 3 Simple Steps And Speak More Powerfully
In today’s world, we’re inundated with information from all sides. So we don’t want to merely add to all the noise. Like the space between the lightning and the clap of thunder, we want to make people pause and listen. To create a silence around us that speaks volumes. We want to create meaning and […]
So, what decision will you make?
You can either choose to continue feeling frustrated, insecure or stuck because you're worried about:
- your English not being good enough (fear of making mistakes or not understanding, losing credibility because you think you'll lack the words you need) so you continue to miss those golden opportunities;
- 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 until the "right" time);
- competitors or colleagues communicating more impactfully 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.
In today’s world, we might be connected 24/7 but we’ve never been so disconnected from ourselves.
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, your business and your relationships can thrive in English.
