Hi! My name is Kim...
And after having my daughter things changed in my business. I suddenly went from knowing exactly what I was doing to not feeling confident, feeling lost and overwhelmed not just in my business but in life generally. I started to feel guilty about the time I didn’t spend with her and everything I did took so much more time and seemed so much more complicated.
I started pondering:
‘How do you find time for yourself in between parenting and your career?’
‘How do you not feel guilty about this?’
‘How can I do it all?’
Then I hit the bottom and didn’t have the energy to do any of it. I felt defeated like I was failing and everyone else had it sussed. I realised I wasn’t looking after the most important person in this equation, ME. I couldn’t give from an empty cup to my daughter, my partner or my business and I started to change the way I did things.
THIS WASN’T THE FIRST TIME I FELT BURNT OUT BUT IT LOOKED DIFFERENT THIS TIME.
Back in 2015, I left my head of events management role with a global media company because I had done the same thing in many ways, I had completely ignored my needs and hadn’t looked after myself.
I started to see a pattern and realised that I had been modelling my parents. Both my parents created successful businesses while I was growing up but at the expense of their wellbeing. As children, we spent a lot of weekends in offices or onsite running riot while our parents worked. The impact that the continued stress and lack of self-care had on them has been significant. And I realised something…
I WANTED TO CHAMPION AND CREATE A NEW STORY! ONE IN WHICH YOU CAN HAVE A SUCCESSFUL CAREER WHILE STILL HAVING TIME FOR YOUR FAMILY AND MAKING YOUR WELLBEING A PRIORITY.
After my burn out I knew that I wanted to work in the health and wellness industry and I retrained as a personal trainer. For me, that was the epitome of self-care and I loved it. I challenged and changed the way people approached self-care and what they could do to enhance it and be the best version of themselves wholly, not just physically.
I started to notice the stories, blocks and limitations that my clients placed on themselves and how they ruled their lives and I wanted to help them change that so I became a life coach.
I’m an entrepreneur, coach, mum and host of the ‘Wealth in Wellness’ podcast. And in case you are wondering where the weird accent is from, I grew up on the Caribbean island of St.Lucia, where my parents still live.
My mission is to change our stories around having successful careers and being parents and if we have to sacrifice as much as we think we do to achieve that.
As part of this mission, I also want to create new stories where family/work can find a balance because it is important to model a version of ourselves to our children that we would want them to become.
I have been coaching since 2015 and have spoken at several events including Inspiring Talks, on different topics.
My work as a personal trainer means that I have a deeper understanding of what your body is telling you. During my time as a coach and entrepreneur, I have worked one-to-one with clients, created podcasts, workshops and other events, which has enabled me to coach mums not only on career and family balance but also understanding where their self-care fits into that and how to find and create your perfect version of balance.
I would love to hear from you and support you on whatever part of your journey you are on.

“Right from our very first session together, Kim made me feel comfortable and I was able to release many emotions that had been building up over the past years. Before my coaching, I felt lost with no sense of direction of where I was going in life. She helped me to identify my limitations, such as negative thinking and anxiety, which were stopping me from moving forward by using hypnosis techniques to find where they stemmed from. Thanks to Kim, by the end of our sessions, I was able to take back control and make positive steps towards my newly found goals. I can’t thank Kim enough for all her help in all areas of my life, including my mental health, relationships and career.”

“After working with Kim I have taken back control of my life. Our sessions were challenging, insightful and transformative. Often, to get to the core of what holds us back and the limiting beliefs we cultivate and normalise throughout our lives we have take a step where we don’t necessarily want to go. Undergoing this process with a person who is so eager to help the client realise they have the power to change their mind-set, meant our sessions were packed full of learning, personal development and realisation. With a paradigm shift occurring towards holistic and alternative medicine where focus is on the individual and the power of the mind, NLP stands out as an enhancement of human potential field. To experience the vitality that true happiness brings and detachment from negative thoughts, is very empowering. I look forward to continue working with Kim to be more grounded and present and less vulnerable to negativity spirals. As Benjamin Franklin said: “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” Thank you Kim for guiding me so I could detach from the past, not fear the future and concentrate on the present.”

" Kim is so understanding. She has really helped show me how to be the individual I have dreamed of being. Kim has guided me in discovering that I no longer need to dream, because I am that individual.
The results have been finding my excitement and fulfilment In owning a business again. I had lost my enthusiasm and was very much going through the motions of owning a business at the time didn’t like. I now have renewed motivation and drive to build the business I’ve always wanted"
