Ellen & Kate

Burnout Coaches

Are you ready to move beyond burnout and create a life in which you can thrive?  

About Us

We’re Ellen and Kate, the burnout coaches. Here to support you to recover from burnout, and change your relationship with the beliefs, habits and ways of living that have led to it. We believe everyone has the right to thrive and enjoy lives that are fulfilling, content, joyful, intentional and with a general sense of ease and resilience. We know burnout gets in the way of this. We also know that burnout is not your fault, but the result of harmful societal structures – beliefs, stories and ‘shoulds’ – that pave the way to burnout. 

Let’s repeat that. Burnout is not your fault. 


If you’re ready to not only heal from burnout, but undo from the harmful beliefs, behaviours and ‘shoulds’ that society encourages us into then we’re ready to work with you.

More About Us

We’re coaches who’ve experienced our own burnout cycles over the past few decades. For 5+ years we’ve been on our own journeys with healing from this, undoing from societal conditioning and cultivating lives led by our own values. In short, we’re now doing the work to follow our own paths – away from burnout.

 That’s not to say we’ll never get to the place of burnout again, or feel like we’re getting close to it. Let’s be real. We’re still living in a society that is very unhelpful and unsupportive of human health and wellbeing. It’s hard to walk your own path, and sometimes you stray down old well-trodden ones.

So, we’re never going to sell you a 7 step path to ditching burnout for good. No, because as long as we live in this society that doesn’t exist. Instead, we will support you to deeply connect to yourself, to build awareness so you can notice when you might be back on the path to burnout and to cultivate the compassion and self-trust you need to guide yourself back onto your own path again. 

 Our personal experiences with burnout is what led us to all of the work we’ve been doing the past few years. Our training in coaching, yoga, holistic health and all the personal development work we’ve done. Now, we weave our personal experiences together with the knowledge we’ve gained into our work here supporting you on your path of burnout recovery.

Not just burnout recovery, but whole self healing.

Whilst we can and will support you to recover from the immediate experience of burnout, we also take a holistic approach to our work. From personal experience being stuck in burnout cycles, we know that to truly heal it is important to examine the path that led us to burnout and to create a new path for ourselves.

 

We work with you to support you in returning to a state of wholeness and true wellbeing. We want to help you in reconnecting to your body & inner knowing, rewriting harmful beliefs, undoing from conditioning you’ve inherited & disconnecting from the societal ‘shoulds’. When you work with us, you will begin walking down a path that takes you away from being trapped in burnout cycles and towards a fulfilling, content and joyful life.

The path leading us to burnout is often paved with the following things learned from society:

  • Perfectionism learned as a way to be a woman in the world
  • Codependency
  • A lack of boundaries and ability to enforce them
  • A lack of belief in, or understanding of, our own self-worth
  • Learned narratives around what it means to be successful and the importance of that
  • Caring more about the opinion of others over ourselves
  • People pleasing
  • Self-doubt
  • Disconnection from our bodies and our embodied experiences
  • Disconnection from, and lack of trust in, our intuition
  • Valuing of ambition and productivity above all else
  • Unhealthy learned relationship with work, and beliefs around work

Why The Good Space?

The name  – The Good Space – is inspired by the Sanskrit word Sukha and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Sthira Sukham Asanam – Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra 2.46

Often translated as asana being the cultivation of a steady & comfortable seat for the purpose of seated meditation practice & absorption. 

But Sukha can more literally be translated as an easeful or ‘good space’, in contrast to the concept of Dukkha which can literally be translated as a stuck, stagnant uneasy or ‘bad space’.

So Sutra 2.46 can more literally be translated as ‘to dwell in a good space’. 

This is the inspiration for The Good Space, a place where we can work together to leave burnout cycles behind and cultivate a good space to dwell inside of ourselves, and in our lives. 

The Good Space holds three core values at its heart

collaboration/connection

magic

sustainability

Women who’ve healed from burnout are capable of magic, and the world needs our magic

 

 We want to use our experience and the skills we’ve gained to support other women to move through, out of and away from burnout. Can we do all of this work ourselves? No, of course not. Our society is broken and many aspects of it need rebuilding. But, there are things we can do, changes we can make and ways we can make life better, fuller, more joyful and easeful for ourselves. And from that place, perhaps we can support, inspire and push for larger societal changes. 

We believe it is possible for every woman to live a whole, healthy, fulfilling, joyful and magical  life healed from burnout.
