Discover the Possibilities
“All our dreams can come true, If we have the courage to pursue them”
– Walt Disney
I believe you can create the life of your dreams and be an amazing mother and wife at the same time. Since becoming a mom, I feel strongly that it is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me and is arguably the most important job in the world! I now want to inspire and encourage other moms to live their best life and find the work life balance. Which can be so hard in our current world as we try to live up to expectations and fear the mummy guilt when we try make something of ourselves and make sacrifices for our kids. I want moms to reclaim their confidence and self value and worth to be all they can be.
I am also super passionate about making the word a better place. I do this by living simply and as eco friendly as I can. By doing so I bring this into my practice and love to share my knowledge to help others in their journey. This is why I started my new business, The Wee Country Mouse, to showcase this way of living and how I bring this into my coaching business.
More About Me
I have been a certified New Insights PRO life coach since April 2015 and a Bsc (Hons) Psychology graduate (2010). I have also recently gained full status as an ICR (international coach register) coach practitioner. I was born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland and emigrated to Cape Town, South Africa in 2013, where I now reside with my husband, 3 year old son and two cheeky golden retrievers. We are now planning to move to the Highlands of Scotland to embark on our rural county life at the beginning of 2021.
My career history so far has included working in international banking for 7 years. Within this time, I accumulated extensive experience and interaction with people across customer facing units. At the start of my career I worked predominantly with call centre staff in a training and development capacity. My transition to a Service Improvement Manager allowed me to make a difference in the call centre working alongside senior management and directors to improve staff performance and overall customer experience. Once promoted to a Senior Change Analyst, my platform extended to creating strategic relationships with stakeholders across divisions of a global business. Upon emigrating to Cape Town, I decided to return to my psychology roots where I feel I can make the most difference to peoples lives. I found a passion for developing people and I believe it is my purpose to use my experience and knowledge to make an impact on a broader scale.
Doing what I do, it is important to me that I conduct ongoing research to be at the forefront of psychology studies and practices. In addition, I engage in homemaking crafts and gardening and have a great love for outdoor activities such as mountain biking and running. I have always loved animals and have volunteered for places like the SSPCA and SANCCOB working mainly with penguins here in Cape Town. The pairing of the natural world and the animal kingdom is what makes me inspired every day to live as simply as I can and try make a difference to the world. This is why I am conscious of my own footprint on this planet and reducing my waste and consumption. My goal is to become as zero waste and plastic free as possible whilst sharing my country inspired simple living journey.
My Coaching Services
1) Work/Life Balance Coaching
Individual sessions which focus on gaining balance throughout all the areas in your life. These sessions are tailored specifically to your needs so that you get the optimum success and reward for your efforts. I work face to face in an agreed convenient spot for you or via Skype/Whatsapp video.
I offer a 6 month programme which is based on fortnightly sessions where you will get:-
- Client workbook after every session which includes your Action Steps to work on
- Email/Call support between sessions
- Monthly milestone review
- End of 6 month Celebration guarantee!
The 13 session programme is recommended over 6 months as it takes this long to achieve realistic goals and make a lasting change and impact to your life areas.
I also offer the ‘Intensive goal setting session’ which is a 3 hr in depth coaching session where you will come away with defined goals that are
- Broken down into manageable milestones.
We will work together to build the foundations for your success by eliminating any initial fears and empowering you to take the next steps towards creating the life you deserve.
I have also created simple and beautiful courses/retreats to realign yourself with the natural world and to nurture the soul. We will do this by, elevating your conscious awareness to what matters most to you in life. To live the life that feels right for you and your family as you go through life seasons. To light your fire and burn brightly and fulfil your potential.
The two programmes I run are “The Wellness Hour” which is a concept that came about as I felt a need to create a time and space for people to slow down in the busyness of life. To connect with themselves, with each other in community as well as draw inspiration from nature and as we change and adapt to the seasons. It’s a time to be mindful, to focus on our well being and take a moment to pause and just be.
What to expect
- Weekly exclusive online group coaching via Zoom (outside gatherings in nature will resume as we come out of lockdown and COVID 19 restricitons)
- 1 hour of guided breath exercise, mindful journalling, seasonal topic discussion and habit creating with accountability
- Access to WhatsApp group with your coach Natalie Kirby
- Prepare to fill your cup, work on self growth, self care and overall mind/body/soul well being
- Connect and be part of a community of women supporting each other
I also offer “The Frazzled to Dazzled Mama” online course that has been specifically designed for Mamas to reclaim their confidence and control. To overcome the overwhelm of motherhood and especially in times of lockdown and isolation that we have been through in 2020.
We can come through the other side stronger, more capable and more in tune with ourselves and a clear vision of our hope for the future.
Move away from the comparison state and embrace you true self and DAZZLE as the amazing women and mother you are.
I will teach you how to setup your day for success, to live according to your own rules and values and get you realigned to loving yourself and your life.
The course outline:
- Goal Setting Masterclass
- Weekly workshops via Zoom (4 in total with homework activities)

Typical Situations Where I Can Help
During one-to-one coaching sessions I help clients to create goals in a chosen life area which requires focus to get more balance in their life, for example, a career change or transition into a new role at work.
I also help people to gain a work life balance by focusing on other life areas such as their health or taking on new hobbies all of which improves performance in other areas.
For many, it’s the coaching process of increasing self awareness and gaining more confidence and self belief that helps them to step out and become the best they can be and to enjoy great fulfilment in life.
I can work with key staff such as senior managers and directors, team leaders, clerical staff and customer/client service staff with the aim of:
- Maximising the success of the organisation through developing and empowering it’s people and improving their customer service
- Providing tools and techniques to improve staff morale and performance
