About Kirsten Goodwin

I help ambitious, frustrated professional women transform their careers without struggling with stress or risking burnout.

For over a decade, I built a successful career in the Civil Service, negotiating for the UK in Brussels, and operating at the highest levels in some of the toughest roles - including teaching hard-bitten coppers how to do their jobs better at the National Crime Agency.

Kirsten Goodwin learned:

  • how to build and lead high-performing teams in the Cabinet Office, Home Office and Foreign Office,
  • grow my authority and make an impact as a much younger woman in a male-dominated world,
  • and how to achieve my goals in complex organisations through negotiation, networks, and influence. 

But I came close to burnout. My body would shut down from my inability to handle stress. I was regularly unable to leave my bed for days, sometimes weeks at a time. This went on for years.  

Luckily, I learned powerful “mind-body” tools and techniques that re-set my approach to stress, and helped me thrive. After that, I successfully delivered my hardest project ever, without once getting ill.
