Kelly’s Journey to A.S.K.
By the age of 30, despite good career success, Kelly Armatage had endured an emotional childhood, 2 car accidents, 2 nervous breakdowns, panic attacks, depression and a divorce. Born in North London, her corporate career eventually led her to the Middle East, settling on the tiny island of Bahrain in the Persian Gulf. It was in Bahrain that Kelly became aware of her innate empathic ability. High flying CEO’s and Directors were confiding in her at meetings, opening up about their innermost feelings, thoughts and fears. Kelly saw an illuminating opportunity to not only help others, but to embark on a journey to heal herself too.
Entering into yet another dysfunctional marriage due to her codependency and ingrained picked up habits, Kelly experienced more emotional pain than ever before. Kelly’s unconditional inquisitiveness in healing all of this anguish expanded as she desperately tried, in her limited and unhealed subconscious, to overcome her issues.
Over the next 5 years, Kelly undertook deep therapy with top coaching experts, whilst studying for her qualifications. She trained in all areas of counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy, psychotherapy and coaching, becoming a fully qualified practitioner. In 2007, ‘Kelly Armatage Inc’, Bahrain was opened. A sanctuary for people to empower themselves out of emotional pain, overhaul their inner programming and discover healthy, functional and pleasurable lives.
Kelly has facilitated over 10,000 one on one sessions, as well as hundreds of seminars and workshops. Through this experience, she has observed unique patterns of healing and behaviour. These reflections, combined with years of research and her own extensive, personal development have inspired the creation of A.S.K. – A Serenity Kit.
After over a decade of helping people in the Middle East, Kelly relocated to New York City in January 2017. She is now raising awareness of the A.S.K. technique through media, sessions and seminars in the USA.
A.S.K. is a beautifully simple tool that is with you every day of your life and has grown into a community of people finding change one step at a time.
