Hey, I'm Em!

Emma Morgan
ACA registered counsellor, reformed high-achieving stress-head + current burnout therapist/coach + retreat host

Over the past 5 years I’ve transformed from a complete corporate stress-head, trapped grinding away in the hustle and bustle of my marketing career, to now living a life of ease and flow living in a cottage in nature with the partner of my dreams, living a meaningful career serving others from a (usually!) full cup.

I’ve lived through numerous cycles of high stress and burnout and spent years working on my own personal growth to feel truly at peace and become the happiest version of myself.

I know what it’s like to feel exhausted from the daily grind, climbing the corporate ladder, chasing promotions, starting side-hustles, constantly seeking to achieve more but never feeling like it’s enough. 

I tried the quick fixes - getting through with bulk coffee, living for the weekends and booking regular holidays – all of which helped for a short time, but the stress and burnout would return with a vengeance.

I wanted to create lasting change and feel a constant state of contentment, rather than grinding away to receive fleeting hits of satisfaction. So, I made a commitment to do whatever it took to become the happiest version of myself. 

It wasn’t until I slowed down and looked within myself that I started addressing the root cause of what was really going on.

I spent the following years devouring books, podcasts, and documentaries, participated in numerous courses and workshops, paid for several sessions with coaches and therapists, and completed a postgraduate degree in counselling – before opening a counselling practice and running hundreds of therapy sessions with clients. I consumed more self-development content than many people would in a lifetime, and helped people transform their lives from their most vulnerable places, and the powerful lessons I’ve learnt about human nature have completely transformed my mindset and my life.
 

I have built a resilience that has since enabled me to find peace even during incredibly challenging times – from relationship breakdowns to business failures, car accidents and financial crises. Even in times of my most external ‘failures’ and least material ‘successes’, I have cultivated enough inner peace and gratitude that meant I found acceptance in the hardest times.

I now realise I never really wanted the new promotion, or job, or house or business. What I was seeking all along was the feeling I thought they would bring. Feelings of joy and happiness. But these feelings are internal – they can’t be found in external items or achievements. The key to unlocking inner peace and lasting happiness was always within myself.


I now live each day with ease, flow, and joy. I’m excited to jump out of bed in the morning, inspired by a deep knowing that I'm living my truest, most authentic life. I've learnt that life really can be restful and playful while I get to live out my purpose - it's not too good to be true, and I'm passionate about making that a reality for you too.
