A corporate escapee, living my dream of travelling the world, homeschooling my kids and coaching women in midlife reclaim their lives ... just as I did.

About Me

Hi there! I'm Lianne, and my journey to reclaiming my life has been one helluva wild ride.


Saying my life has been tumultuous over the past five years, is an understatement. I've been through it all—lost my job, started a business, lost all clients, welcomed two more bundles of joy into the world, battled postpartum depression, survived a global pandemic, hit rock-bottom with burnout (and survived!) and even found out I've got adult ADHD. Phew!

I used to be stuck in the "your worth = your productivity" trap, and let me tell you, it nearly did me in.

I took a good, hard look at myself and the world around me, and decided enough was enough.

With the support of a coach and therapist, I tackled my productivity issues and found my way back to confidence.


Sure, imposter syndrome still pops up from time to time, but I've learned to give it a friendly "smile and wave" as I power through.

I dived deep into my passion for psychology and personal growth, honed my coaching skills, and soaked up all the knowledge about how the human mind works.

What I also had was 20 years of marketing and business experience, which I felt I could share with others, and help them logically and strategically reclaim their lives. ​

Turns out, I always knew deep down what I wanted out of life—I just needed a bit of courage to go after it.

And you know what? I made it happen. I cracked the code on making life a little less chaotic, designing a lifestyle that's truly my own.


In fact, over the past year, I've been living my dream of traveling South East Asia and homeschooling my incredible children.

And this is why I started my coaching practice —I want to help YOU do the same.


Whether your dream is to start your own business, write that book you've been thinking about, or yes, even live on a tropical island—I've got your back.

My framework isn't just about fluffy dreams and wishful thinking. It's about practical, logical steps to turn those dreams into reality. I've been there, done that, and I'm here to guide you every step of the way.

So if you're ready to break free from the mundane and start living life on your own terms, you're in the right place. Let's chat, let's connect, and let's make those dreams a reality—together.

I've got the tools, the know-how, and the unwavering support to help you make it happen.

So if you're ready to step into your power, embrace your potential, and create a life that lights you up from the inside out, you're in the right place.  

Lianne Byrne Reclaim Your Life Coach

My unique journey through burnout and beyond has prepared me for the work I do today - a  coach specialising in working with women in midlife to prevent or recover from burnout and go on to fully reclaim their lives.

Fun facts about me

My "chosen" career was marketing

I studied marketing and have always been at the cusp of creativity, marketing and technology for the past 20 years. This has seen me have interesting jobs in retail, cryptocurrency, media & entertainment and finance. I'm a mixed bag really with highly regarded skills in communication, marketing, design, web design, advertising, digital and now AI.

My first love has always been personal development

I have always been incredibly fascinated with the human condition, and what makes people tick. Ultimately I was  trying to understand myself better. I saw myself as Clarisse Starling in Silence of the Lambs... Getting into the mind of the serial killer to understand underlying motivations. I even started my Psychology degree but never finished it.  Thanks ADHD brain!

My journey through burnout has seen me focus rather on studying coaching, because I love the practical aspect of it and it's helped me so much on my journey. It allows me to work with my clients to explore the depths of their underlying beliefs and the  choices they make. I love how it allows my clients to create plans to move them through to a new and better reality . 

I sold everything and packed up my family to start travelling the world in 2023.

In February 2023 we packed up and sold everything to fly to the Philippines from Cape Town. We began unplugging from the "matrix", started world schooling our kids and living a simple and joyful life. We decided to keep traveling and exploring, landing up in Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam. We are still traveling and loving our new life. Obviously it's not without its challenges, but we've found a way to make it work, become digital nomads and our kids are thriving.  Follow me here @fam5freedomadventure for more.

My Mission

I work with women to navigate the chaos of midlife.


What I have noticed is the role that capitalism plays in the burnout of both men and women.


I am on a mission to dismantle this toxic way of working. 

The root cause of many of my client's burnout is often traced back to the conditioning they've receive as young children, the inequality in the workplace and the invisible workload that women bear.

Women often find themselves feeling guilty for not being able to do it all, even when the odds are stacked against them.

We were never meant to work like this. I help my client's realise that they are not defective, it's the system within which they work, which is defective.


Design a brand new life with me!
