How To Finish Your PhD without Burning Out

I help you to find the right strategies, techniques, and mindset to improve your academic confidence, avoid extensions, and find more time for friends and family.

Has This Been Your PhD Experience So Far?

  • You’re exhausted at the end of each day, but don’t feel like you’re making much progress
  • No matter how hard you work, you still feel like you’re not good enough or academic enough 
  • You have a good supervisor, but you’re not sure how to control the meeting agenda to get specific feedback or the help you need with strategic planning for your next steps
  • You’re being kept up at night worrying what your future will look like once you have finished your PhD (and wondering whether pursuing a PhD was a good use of your time, money and energy)
  • You constantly feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day
  • You believe there’s no time left over for yourself, and struggle with feeling guilty if you have any sort of break
  • Although you love your research, working through your PhD is a  lonely and isolating experience
  • Your family and friends are proud of you, but nobody really understands how hard and stressful the PhD journey can be

Kind words from clients

tired phd candidate

J. L.
PhD Candidate, UK 

“Before working with Lucia,
 I was struggling with motivation 
and had massive productivity blocks.

 Many of Lucia’s experiences mirror my own, which makes it easy to relate to her.  

Lucia genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her clients, often providing additional support when she knows we are struggling with something. “

Masters Student, UK

 " I needed to start writing but was experiencing self-doubt. (...)

With Lucia’s help my confidence grew.  

She understood my situation, and I really valued her accompanying me on my dissertation writing journey.  

Her help proved invaluable, and I have just met my deadline two days early."

“Lucia is someone I can brainstorm with.

 I really appreciate her warm, caring, and supportive demeanour.  

 I look forward to my sessions each week as I know I will walk away with a plan of attack. I've come to really enjoy my PhD again.  

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lucia to other PhD students."
