Get to Know Kelly

Hello, I’m Kelly MacLellan, M.Sc.,

Rehabilitation Counsellor, Author, Certified Life & Career Specialist with a spiritual twist.

Embrace Your Life was founded in 2008 and has helped hundreds of people rebuild their lives after life-changing losses. The specialized process involves grief exploration, breaking through personal and professional limits and strategies to reimagine life and cultivate hope.

Embrace Your Life is for those at a spiritual crossroads, struggling to find purpose in the face of change, transition, and loss. Together we will help you close the gap between reality and your future vision – for yourself and your family. As a result, you will ease into change, embracing it rather than resisting it.

I am a member of the Association for Death Education and Counseling, and the ICF—International Coach Federation—recognizes my training.

My personal story of grief, healing and transformation inspires the core message of my business, Embrace Your Life Coaching, which I started in 2008 after reimagining my life after loss…which led me to the Caribbean! Read more here.

A Passionate Professional with a unique experience.

When looking for guidance, you want someone qualified to help you with important life matters. I have over 25 years of specialized experience providing grief support and career transition services. My commitment to learning is evident in these achievements: as an Author, Certified Life and Career Coach, Masters Degree in Rehabilitation Counselling, a Bachelors Degree in Sociology, a Diploma in Social Services and Certificates in Human Resources, Counselling, Creative Writing and a current student of Thanatology – Grief and Bereavement, and Mindfulness Teacher Training. I will draw on accumulated knowledge and wisdom to customize a strategy with you to help with whatever you are facing in your life.

Driven to Uncover Your Potential

I believe that fulfillment is experienced by living a purpose-driven life, and meaningful work allows you to share your gifts with the world.

The role of work in your life is an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to society. And an opportunity to regain a sense of control, autonomy and creativity. 

Healing from loss allows you to continue to grow and evolve, adapting and building resilience to the challenges in life.

I see potential and reflect my client’s brilliance to them. Together we find solutions. The process is powerful and transformational.

Or change career directions entirely?

As your partner, I will cheer, challenge, teach, and share my resources, all customized to your situation.

My work inspires hope and guides you to live and work with purpose and fulfillment. 

What do you want to create? How do you want to be in your life?

– Kelly
