Burnout is like trying to juggle a bunch of colourful, spinning plates with one hand.

E-x-h-a-u-s-t-i-n-g, right?

I’ll help you break free from the cycle of overwhelm, stress and poor boundaries so you can go from depleted to repleted.

Am I burned out or just tired?

Grab my 5-minute checklist to understand what you’re experiencing and how to start feeling better today

I want you to know:

It’s safe to have boundaries.
It’s safe to put yourself first.
It’s safe to get your needs met.

If any of these statements feel overwhelming, then you’re in the right place.

It feels overwhelming because, like most people, you believe your burnout is outside of your control and not something you’re privileged enough to be able to prioritise solving.

I get it, you chose to have these kids, to take on this hectic job to pay the bills, to be in this relationship and you can’t throw it all away, so you might as well grit your teeth and bear it….right?

The truth is that burnout goes so much deeper than having a lot of responsibilities. It’s actually a direct result of what you choose to allow and take on while subconsciously betraying yourself in the process.

It’s not your fault that you’re burned out. We pick up these habits and beliefs from childhood and they’re hard to break. But I want you to know you DO have choices that don’t have to involve quitting your job, moving interstate, leaving your partner or spontaneously finding free babysitting.

What kind of burnout have you been experiencing?

professional burnout

Professional Burnout

Professional burnout feels like going to bed dreading the next day at work already, struggling under the weight of your job’s demands or a lack of fulfillment and emptiness.

parental burnout

Parental Burnout

Parental burnout feels like you’re constantly on an unpredictable rollercoaster ride. Feeling emotionally drained, the relentlessness of always being on call, sleep deprivation and pressure can eat away at you.

relationship burnout

Relationship Burnout

Relationship burnout feels like disconnection to the point where you’re more like roommates or co-parents. When love and intimacy get replaced with resentment.

Hi, I’m Jenny Carter

In my role as a registered counsellor in Brisbane, I’ve helped hundreds of women over the years and most come to me saying “I think I’m burned out.”

Let me tell you — if you think you’re burned out then you probably are and the awareness of it is an amazing first step.

hi i'm jenny carter
It’s time for us to re-evaluate what it looks like to be a woman in the modern world.

We, women, don’t have to conform to a life of service and subordination (bye bye 1950’s).

That time is over, girls! It’s a new world.

• Are you ready to let go of perfection?
• Of martyrdom and self-sacrifice?
• Of a life that doesn’t belong to you?

And breathe a big ‘ol sigh of relief?

I am a registered counsellor, wife and mother to three gorgeous souls and I’m on a heart-led mission to guide souls like you who are feeling overwhelmed and at the edge of burnout.

I’ll support you to find more balance, fulfilment, joy, meaning and purpose in your life by learning how to truly get to know yourself.

In my own life I’ve faced serious burnout three times, so I can completely empathise with how it feels.

I believe that when we really understand who we are (the great, the good, the bad and the ugly), we allow ourselves to feel more free and empowered to live in alignment with our purpose.

I have a Master’s degree in Counselling and currently work as a Senior Consultant for one of Australia’s biggest counselling companies. I also run a private therapy practice in Brisbane, Australia.

Tree of Life Course

Not sure who you are anymore and want to answer the question: ‘who am I?’ Well, this course is for you! Create your own tree that brings your strengths and gifts to life.

Is your life out of balance?

Think of your life as boiling down to four quadrants. Do some take up greater space in your life? How does that make you feel?

REMEMBER: It’s ok if all of your quadrants aren’t perfectly even – in fact, most of the time they won’t be. Balance comes from knowing when you feel discomfort and recognising that one quadrant is taking up too much space or one has shrunk so that it’s feeling neglected.

When you notice this, it’s time to make changes, take action, have conversations, delegate and if you need extra help, I offer 1:1 counselling sessions to unpack it with oodles of support or my Soul Reviver Program can support you to make changes on a budget.
