Shelley Crawford is an Executive, Life, Performance and Health and Well-being Coach and Lecturer, a Coach Supervisor, and Leadership Communication and Resilience Facilitator. Her core background is in Coaching, Organisational Psychology and Health Ergonomics. Shelley’s passion is assisting people to realize their fullest potential, find a health and wellbeing work/life balance whilst maximising their skills and talents to achieve their goals – particularly in diverse and culturally different environments.

Dr Kim Fitzgerald is a registered and chartered psychologist and coach who has worked in private practice for over ten years. Her interest and experience in a wellness coaching model stems from many years of providing psychological support to persons with chronic health conditions. Kim’s interests are in cognitive approaches to recovery. She specialises in employee assistance and wellness programmes, vocational rehabilitation, return to work coordination, and disability management. Her PhD research in psychology focused on occupational health and women’s issues.


This workshop introduces a unique coaching tool (a heart-shaped puzzle developed by Shelley). It can be used to stimulate coaching dialogue, awareness, goals and actions in a coaching session, around those elements that can help build a client’s resilience, especially where there is danger of burnout. As we move further into the ‘era of resilience’, and resilience receives more academic and professional focus, we must not only ask the question ‘what makes a person resilient?’ but also ask ‘how can we build resilience in people? And ‘how can we use coaching to build resilience in our clients?’ Background research in positive psychology, neuroscience, burnout, well-being, cognitive behavioural coaching and recovery underpin the workshop theory.

There are a maximum of 16 places at this workshop so if you want to attend please get to the room early!
