Welcome to BurnoutProof.

Welcome to lightening your load, and finding joy again.

My name is Corri.

I am a life coach, a teacher, and an avid reader. I am a human who is both fragile and strong. I live in Canada! 

It takes effort to not burn out in our noisy, busy world. Yuck. It can be so overwhelming.

I burnt out four years ago, spent a year recouping, and two more years rebuilding to get back to full strength.

Guess what -- the noisy, busy world is still noisy and busy. But I've carved out life-giving, tranquil spaces for myself, at home and work. More importantly, I consciously changed a great deal on the inside, like my false beliefs and bad patterns (ie perfectionism), that were keeping me on the road to burnout. 

I still make conscious efforts to stay OFF the Burnout Road and ON the road to emotional vitality. 

I created this course to bring you what I wish I had learned years ago. It is possible to burnout-proof your life.

Thanks for being here. Please, poke around on this page, or the more details page. If you're left with any questions at all, just zip me an email. I'll be very glad to hear from you.

with love,

Corri


Who is Burnout-Proof for?

For you, perhaps. Let me ask you:

Does it seem like the only time you’re alone and have a moment to think is when you’re on the toilet?

Does it feel like a ridiculous luxury to pause, to reflect on your life?

Do close friends often say:

  • don’t overdo it!
  • you gotta slow down!
  • how do you do it?

Do you lack emotions? As in, you feel numb inside, like nothing is touching you? Or are forever on the verge of tears?

When is the last time you had time to dream about the future?

When's the last time you read a good book, took a nap, or played?

Do you often say:

  • I just gotta push through.
  • I never get enough sleep.
  • I can’t help it, I’m a perfectionist.

Is life like a carousel that won’t stop – a not-so-merry-go-round?

Do you feel like you’re never ever caught up with yourself, never mind ‘ahead’ of the game?

Are you simply exhausted in body, mind and/or spirit?

Once you get a break or vacation, are you too tired to enjoy it? 

Are you always doing?

Do you feel (ever so slightly) like a superhero when you accomplish tons of stuff?

Do you lack identity and confidence when you’re not getting stuff done?  

Would you auction off your eldest child for a hot bath and an evening of quiet?

 

Do you share any of the worries, thoughts or feelings of these little cuties? 

do you identify with any of these characters? 

If you identify with any of these characters above and how they feel, this is the course for you. Corri is an exceptional coach and facilitator. She designed this course to get you on the road away from burnout and towards vitality and joy. 

Isn't it time to take care of yourself? 



 

The Burnout-Proof course will take effort.

But every ounce of expended energy . . . 

will lead you toward rest, joy, and refilling patterns.

Why not take a load off?

It's time. 


Why Does Corri Care So Much About Burnout?

Corri had a burnout four years ago.

Her life coach was vital in helping her notice that she was burning out and helping her recover and rebuild. 

Corri spent years listening, growing, journaling and learning -- in order to rebuild.

She now brings this knowledge and insight, her coach and teacher training, and personal experience to steer others away from burnout, and toward vitality and joy. 

Here's the longer version of the story:  

Corri burned out four years ago. Her wonderful life coach, Mark Anderson, alerted her to the fact that she was in danger. She feels that he stopped her just before falling off a cliff – emotionally speaking.

Burning out was painful.

And the rebuild was lengthy. It was only last September that Corri felt herself close to full strength again.

The rebuild was intentional. It wouldn’t have happened naturally.

Corri laid on a couch for two weeks. The physical healing happened fastest, in weeks and months. But her mental, emotional and spiritual capacity had shrunk down to the size of a pea.

Corri found herself uncovering layers of lies, and poopy perfectionist patterns that kept her heading down Burnout Lane. She had to learn to say “no” – that was a hard one. She had to learn to stop feeling others’ feelings, and start feeling her own. She cried an ocean of tears, and climbed some steep cliffs.

Questions like can I trust God? and am I being selfish when I take time for myself? needed wrestling with, and answers weren’t quick to appear.

 

Corri says,

Burnout is no joke. As we talk ABOUT how to prevent (and heal from) burnout in the course, we will MAKE lots of jokes, because life is both tragic and humorous simultaneously. But yes, burnout is no joke, and I know that well.

I am keen to show others a road that leads AWAY from burnout, and toward health, joy, tranquility, passion, courage and purpose. It is not a microwave-quick solution – it takes work and time. And emotionally intimate companionship.

I love facilitating a group into trust, vulnerability, honesty, encouragement, challenge, laughter, tears, joy and hope. That is one of MY purposes in life.

One of my biggest lessons was how to have relationships in a good and healthy way. I’m writing a book on burnout. And I’m not doing it in isolation. I’m making Inkings (Burnout 101) and I’m leading this course, and people are reading my chapters, and it’s glorious to have meaningful connection on such an important topic. 

I hope your story will intersect with mine and the others in this group . . . because who knows what will come of this synergy?”
