Narrative Coach and Facilitator

Kïrsten Blake


Kïrsten Blake is the creator and founder of Chapter BE. As a certified narrative coach, Kïrsten helps people reframe their stories to better connect with themselves and others, so they can ultimately tap into a more mindful, authentic state of being. She works with individuals and leaders around their personal and professional development by helping them develop a deeper sense of self-awareness in service of transformation and connection. This includes coaching on accessing your inner resources, developing your emotional intelligence, using mindfulness, and finding ways to spark organisational shifts that serve group cohesion and promote employee wellbeing. The aim of all of this is to help you foster both inter and intra-connections in your work and personal life.

Kïrsten is an educator, facilitator, podcaster, author, and public speaker. Her work and “The Being of a Nation” interviews have been highlighted in The Huffington Post as well as on the TEDx Stage. When she’s not coaching, facilitating workshops, working on her manuscript, or taking road trips with her dog, Harriet Ethel, Kïrsten can be found running an online vintage clothing store, where she likes to imagine she’s helping well-loved pieces write the next chapters of their stories.
