OPEN ME

FULL-ON HYPER SINCE 1980

THIS IS ME.

I’m Kerry Lyons – The Imperfection Coach, a designer, a blogger, and creator of The Imperfect Life®. I have a thing for doughnuts, Nike Air Max 90s and Michael Jackson. Director’s cut below :)

I’m also a wife and a mama and I was born and bred in Birmingham, UK, but will forever be straddling the Irish Sea with my beloved home-from-home in Dublin, Ireland.

Other than acting the tit with my daughter and making her hyper, I love nothing more than helping people like you see the true glitter in your life. I do this by giving you the tools to see what exciting magicalness is ahead of you, and showing you how to allow that magic in too.

BUT MY LIFE WASN'T ALWAYS ABOUT GLITTER-HUNTING. IN FACT FOR A LONG TIME, I COULDN'T SEE ANY GLITTER AT ALL.

At 25 I’d manifested one humdinger of a quarter-life crisis, and not only did it feel like my future had zero direction, but I’d given myself a fast-track ticket to depression too. I felt stuck, hopeless and after years of people-pleasing, it was like the life I was living, wasn’t my own. Everything seemed like it was falling apart, and it still makes me emotional to say, but I thought people around me would be better off without me and my depression-bubble burden hanging over them. 

What followed were sessions with a therapist to work through all the stuff I’d buried; quitting my ‘dream’ job and salary that I‘d worked my ass off (and climbed the career ladder of) for 11 years; ending a 12-year relationship; selling my ‘dream’ home that I‘d renovated from scratch to move into my Dad’s spare bedroom, and then running away to the west coast of America by myself. (So yep, *that’s* what I meant by 'humdinger'). I let go of trying to be 'perfect', and went all-in on creating my messy adventure.

Fast-forward 10+ years and I’m out the other side, feeling like my world is covered in glitter, with a life since filled with some crazy experiences and priceless life-lessons, the biggest and best of which I’ve distilled and developed into The Imperfect Life® tools and tricks. 

So that’s why I’m here, to help you see the glitter in your world as it is now, and discover the magic in your future too. I know where you are and how stuck you feel honey, because I’ve been there, but boy are we gonna have the most fun getting you out!

WHAT'S THE IMPERFECT LIFE®?

I have three tattoos. The one on my right foot is in memory of Michael Jackson. Chamone. (Yep, seriously).
