Rekindle - group visibility overwhelm programme

Rekindle – the visibility overwhelm recovery programme for business owners


  • Do you ever feel like you need to recover from feeding the social media machine?
  • Are you experiencing fears or traumas around visibility, social media backlash or even cancelling?
  • What would it mean for you to let go of what the marketing gurus say, and do it in a way that worked for you?
  • How would it feel to create a way of raising your profile that you really enjoy?

This is the essence of Rekindle, my 12-week group visibility overwhelm programme launching October 2023.


Recover, Regroup, Rekindle


group visibility overwhelm recovery programmeI’m Paula Gardner and I’ve used my background as a previous owner of a PR and marketing company, together with my skills and knowledge as a business psychologist and psychotherapist, to create this programme. It consists of three main sections to take you from burnt out, cynical or exhausted, to feeling ready to go with a more manageable strategy, tactics and sense of energy.




The first part of this programme targets how you can step back in a way that doesn’t make you panic. We’ll be looking at burn-out and its various relations, and assess exactly how far along the road you may be. You’ll get bespoke one to one time with me around your own situation, to make sure you get the most from this programme.


Burnout or overwhelm often brings symptoms. These can include anxiety, sleep issues, restlessness, depression, cynicism and a loss of interest in your work or others. We’ll be looking at these, of course. We will also be looking at what you need from a Human Givens perspective, assessing how well you are getting these needs met, and what you can do about it. This part of the programme involves a one to one session with me, four group sessions, and runs from the last week of October until the end of November.




tired of posting on social mediaRegroup will help you take a realistic assessment of your personality, skills, strengths, likes and dislikes and align them to activities that will reach your target audience. Part of this exhaustion around visibility is often that feeling that we need to do everything and be everywhere. We know that this isn’t true, but it’s still hard to know exactly what we can do to make the biggest impact. Likewise, if we are listening to the latest guru’s ideas, we often end up doing things we don’t even like. Then, guess what, we never keep them up for long.


Regroup runs for two weeks in December and a week in January, with a break for the Christmas season.




This is where we create the framework for your visibility plan, and start to put it into action. We’ll also be looking at anything that might hold you back, whether that’s a fear or something practical. Together, we will create your vision of what your visibility actually looks like, and translate that into a tangible strategy to make it happen. Three workshops take you through the month of January.

The programme is the perfect approach to autumn and the year end, and then a fresh start for 2024 – a genuine reset and recharge.

Sessions are recorded so if you can’t make one you’ll still benefit from the learnings. You can book a call to chat about whether this is right for you here. Or just drop me a line if you want to get going!

Absolutely not! I welcome anyone who is feeling jaded, confused, or who just wants to step back and re-evaluate what they are doing.


About me


I ran my own PR and marketing consultancy for fifteen years, and still keep my hand in. In 2016 I retrained as a business psychologist, coach and Human Givens psychotherapist. What’s more, I have lived experience of feeding the beast to build a business. I have led group programmes for many years, including a past Visibility retreat in verona. Talking of which, here are a couple of testimonials about working with me. If they pique your interest, then book a call with me here.


I was lucky to work with Paula as my coach, and it was everything I hoped it would be and more. Paula is a naturally inquisitive, creative and playful person and these attributes not only made our sessions interesting, but the results were more surprising and thought provoking than I could have imagined or hoped for. Paula’s flexibility as a coach also enhanced the experience, she effortlessly moves between listening and creating space for personal reflection, to a gently challenging style as appropriate – always striking the perfect balance. Highly recommended!

I worked with Paula on a number of occasions during pivotal points in my career, when I have required support, clarity and direction. Her clear and constructive guidance helped define the best direction and next steps in my career. Paula is straight talking, professional and experienced coach, with a genuine interest in helping people achieve their goals. In addition to this, her approachable personality and creative outlook made her a pleasure to work with. Paula offers great support to act on positive changes, in order to achieve new goals in life.

Paula Gardner from Scarlet Thinking ran an intimate visibility retreat. I knew that this was my next turn in the road and I jumped on it! This was followed by a telephone call to check that I wasn’t a crack pot and also that Paula was gonna be able to deliver what I needed. I passed the test and was then moved on to the next meeting which was a face to face Coaching to find out where I was and what I wanted to walk towards. I knew then that I was gonna be nutured and my journey would be a safe even if challenging one. Paula was immaculately prepared with timetables and work sections for us to get through which really helped the organisation of my thoughts. Every topic was valid and moved me to the next level. I was never pushed or prodded. I am a bit of a retreat expert and I am used to attending retreats where the person running it is so worried about delivering and making sure that you leave with a result that you are left feeling a little sad if you don’t get the big breakthrough. Paula’s gentle approach meant that I didn’t have to have a big breakthrough. The journey took me on such a smooth and consistent pathway and along the way I kept having little glimpses of genius. I have walked away from this retreat with my life truly changed. I didn’t have to run around looking for anything. Paula showed me that it was already there inside me – it just needed a place to be visible and a platform to speak from. I will never be the same again. On returning home – I know people have noticed a change – lots of people keep saying to me “you are really grounded Nadine” and I smile knowing that on this retreat I found a reason that was worth me being visible for. Not only to the world – also to myself. If you are looking to make powerful change while being made visible at a gentle pace that suits you. I wouldn’t miss this retreat for anything.
