Helping faith-sector, nonprofit, and social enterprise leaders and teams get on with the business of transforming lives - even if they're on the edge of stress and burnout!

This is a place for mission-minded folks who work to make a difference in the world around them. For faith-driven people who want to stress less, live more and serve well. 


So you're in the right place if:

  • you want to be more calm, focused, and effective (instead of on edge or checked out);

  • you want to help your people become more resilient under pressure (and less likely to get overwhelmed or burn out);

  • some significant event is happening (making you or your team lose sleep or time or focus); and/or

  • you want some effective, practical, no-woo-woo tools so you can build resilience, master stress, and thrive across life, work and mission.


Is this what you're after? Yes? Great - this is what I'm all about! Have a look around, check out  my services  then  contact me  and I'll give you a call. You're my people and I'm here for you - let me know what you need.

You're not alone & we can do something about it.

It can be difficult to live and work well - even feel well - when you've been living in a pressure-cooker for who-knows-how-long.


When you're expected to be in charge of everything all the time; all-knowing and all-hands-on; able to drop everything at the drop of a hat to do what everyone else wants immediately…


But when you do, there's this acidic burn pushing up from your gut to your eyes, the critic in your head is frantically listing off everything that you've got to do (or everything you might do wrong), you're still losing track of things, and you're not sure how you're going to keep going until the weekend (let alone the rest of your life)! 

This is stress. It can be triggered by emotional issues, conflict, work demands, illness, spiritual overload, professional dramas, systemic changes, and global pressures.


No matter where we come from or what we do for a living, stress happens to all of us and affects all of us. It distracts us, drains us, disrupts our memory and sleep, and makes us lose touch with who and what really matters. But what if things could be different?

Every year, more than 30% of the Australian workforce experiences significant stress, and more than 70% of those people will not get enough support. The good news is:

  • If you and/or your group is stressed and you haven't done anything about it - you're not alone!

  • You can do something about it - and the ROI on interventions like these varies between 250 and 500%!

  • You can create peace in the short term, and in the long term,

  • You can discover strategies that work so you can be free to get on with the business of transforming others' lives. (And maybe even your own!)

My job is to come alongside you, and together discover what works best for you so you can

  • become more relaxed and focused,

  • stop struggling with the chaos and busyness,

  • be equipped to move and work calmly through all the demands, 

  • harness your gifts, resources, and abilities,

  • reconnect with what really matters, and

  • learn how to master stress, rather than having it master you


We can work together 1:1 at a site convenient to you, you can come to one of my group retreats or classes, or I can come to your organisation and run retreats, workshops or seminars for your group. 

Does this sound like what you're after?   Contact me  to book something in - you don't have to try to do it alone. 

Krystyna offers a variety of styles and methods of coaching and training to assist people in stress management in all areas of life and work.
In a chronically busy and expensive world, it's really hard to justify the time and expense of coaching.
I know this has been on your mind for a while, and that you'll get around to dealing with this eventually! But please consider:
1. If you/ your teammates have been living with this for more than two weeks, it's unlikely to resolve without some specific action. While you are best placed to make that action - I'm guessing you've ended up here because you haven't quite figured out what/how to make it work yet. This is where my skillset comes in.
2. Stress takes our time, energy and focus away from the moment - and right now, this moment, is the only time we ever have to act. So when we get consumed by stress or stuck inside our heads, that's another moment gone and we can never, ever get it back. That's hours, days - maybe even years - of potential lost. 
So absolutely keep everything going - but remember that for every moment stress consumes, it's gone. So how about we keep that time and make it count?
So why me? 
I started my career in 2004 in clinical psychology, helping people manage a huge range of stressors - emotional distress, relationship struggles, work challenges and changes, parenting issues, chronic pain and illness, and the search for meaning and purpose in the midst of stress and suffering.
Then I had kids, developed a stress-based illness myself, discovered coaching - and was completely won over by how coaching builds people up, inspiring and empowering them to grow using everything they have (even the resources and strengths they don't yet realise they have)!
Now I'm a registered psychologist, coach, trainer, and speaker, focused on helping folks in nonprofit, social enterprise and faith-sector settings build resilience, master stress, and prevent burnout. I build warm and encouraging relationships with my clients with their needs front and centre; drawing on my background in health, coaching, neuroscience; psychology, theology, spirituality and ministry; so they can stress less, live more and work well. 
I'm also the founder of the Paraclete Initiative and a pastoral supervisor, coming alongside church and parachurch leaders and organisations with faith-honouring tools and strategies, so they can throw off whatever hinders and be free to love and serve God and others more meaningfully and sustainably. 
My clients and I work across issues at home and work, collaborating and developing custom-tailored solutions for the pressures they're coping with in their lives, workplaces and organisations. We fine-tune their skills, equipping them with new perspectives, tools, hope, and direction so that they can hang on and do what matters, when it matters, for the people who matter... and thrive
So check out my services and call or email me to talk about how this might look for you or your team. Is it time to survive and thrive?
