What clients say
"Thank you Shelley!
Having never had any type of life coaching, I didn’t know what to expect. All I knew was that I needed it!
My sessions enabled me to focus on what I wanted out of life, what I needed to change and how I was going to achieve these goals.
Coaching has given me the confidence to make life changing decisions. Twelve months later and I have a new job after leaving my job of 30 years.
I would recommend Shelley to anyone who needs help discovering what they want out of life.
When asked repeatedly what had made me leave my job of 30 years I was proud to say that life coaching made me think differently and had given me the confidence to make the change I needed to make.
"I didn’t know what to expect from the coaching sessions, this was uncharted territory for me. I began with a little trepidation of the unknown but within the first 10 minutes Shelley had me totally at ease with her wonderful warm personality.
During lockdown I had got myself in to the bad habit of working through my lunch break and logging back on of an evening to complete pieces of work, this affected my homelife and my wellbeing. My first action set with Shelley was to block out my lunch breaks and reconnect with family/friends for an evening stroll or a chat, this was more difficult than I thought, bad habits are hard to break, but through the coaching process, within a few weeks I was doing it and the impact was amazing. By having a simple lunch break, I was more energised and focused at work. My evenings were no longer taken up with work but with those important people in my life that make me happy.
I also experienced a very difficult life event during the course. Shelley was incredibly supportive and without me really realising at the time, helped me stay focused on achieving my goals…a much needed positive at a very low time.
Shelley doesn’t just hear to what you are saying, she also has that rare ability to listen and understand what you are saying. She gently guides you through the process by building your confidence and challenging you to achieve what you have set out to achieve and before you know it, you are there!
I can’t thank Shelley enough for the experience, the support, the guidance, the laughs, and sense of achievement.
If you are wavering in anyway about coaching, don’t, just jump right on in there, you wont regret it!"
“Shelley’s coaching sessions came at a time of fast-moving growth in my career. Shelley helped me to take a step back and consider the changes that I had to deal with within my new role. Shelley is very much an active listener, she encouraged me to share. Shelley would then help me to unpack what I shared by asking questions that prompted me to focus my efforts on identifying drivers and blockers in my new role. There have been instances where I had to take time to think about Shelley’s questions, as she is good at raising considerations that probably would not have occurred to me otherwise.
Shelley is a very flexible and understanding coach, and I hope to work with her again in the future.”
"Shelley is an amazing coach. As a trained coach myself, I can say with confidence that she is one of the best! I came to Shelley while at a difficult transition in my life. I didn’t really know what I wanted to achieve. Within the first 20 minutes of our first call, Shelley had asked me exactly the right questions to get me on track. She didn’t offer me advice. She didn’t tell me what she thought or offer me suggestions. She coached me by listening actively, giving me space to answer her pointed questions, and allowing me the time to find my own answers. Even during those tough moments when I really “wanted” someone to guide me, Shelley retained her expert coaching manner and kept giving ME the reins to guide my own life: Exactly what a good coach does. I can’t thank Shelley enough for our sessions. We only met once per month, but in the 6 months we worked together, I launched a business, brought my focus back to my own health and wellbeing, and felt unwavering support as I set and reached my own goals. If you want to experience what the right coach can help you achieve, book your time with Shelley now, before her schedule is full!"

"I really enjoyed working with Shelley over the past 6 months or so. She was endlessly patient with me and helped me tease out some issues I was having in my business. Her approach was to let me talk things through with her, ultimately coming up with my own solutions for the issues. Thanks for guiding me Shelley and best of luck in your new business."
