There is no comparison to the life I now lead!
After two years working with Shannon, I shudder when I consider what life might have been like without having her as a coach. I've moved from an engineer in the basement of the company, usually eating lunch alone, to working on my true passion with the CEO and upper management. How could this be? With Shannon's guidance, I looked inside to find my weaknesses, fears and self imposed limitations, and then worked to understand and address each of them a few at a time. In hindsight, I can say that everything was simply a decision, but these were decisions I was not making before working with Shannon! For me, Shannon has been a tour guide through the endless corridors of my mind, and with her help I discovered what was behind each door, why I have constructed each room as I had, and ultimately, how I could rearrange the furniture, layouts and views! There is no comparison to the life I now lead compared to two years ago and I can't wait to see where I will be 10 years from now. Thank you for everything, Shannon.
I have been given the tools for Life!
Wow Shannon, you have awakened me to something surprisingly obvious that I truly think I had 0% chance of ever seeing for myself. I realised after speaking to you that we could reprogram any limiting beliefs inside us that we chose to.… you “taught’ me how to do this!
If someone had told me I could come to understand my true priorities, my true fears, my self-imposed limitations and the real reasons I do the things I do, I would have stopped everything, sold anything and travelled anywhere to gain this knowledge. Luckily, an easier alternative to gaining this knowledge existed: working with you.
I have always been interested in reaching the next level in life and now I realised this can only happen by first achieving the next level in understanding oneself. Indeed, perhaps these are the same thing. Thank you Shannon for giving me tools for life I thought I already had but didn’t, only dreamed of ever having, and those I didn’t realise existed.
The transformation was remarkable!
I sought coaching help because I felt ‘stuck’, I wasn’t sure which way to turn professionally. I also wanted to re-think about balancing my life and just to be more open in general. My biggest fear before hiring Shannon was that it wouldn’t work, or that I’d get discouraged. As someone who has done a lot of positive thinking and self-help before, there was a fear that it would be warmed-over things that I’d read or heard other places, without actually adding something new.
The transformation was remarkable. While doing the coaching sessions, some things improved incrementally, but after the sessions ended I felt a general overall change: I felt lighter, able to think through options, more confident, and I felt more abundant and expectant of good things.
The best experience of the coaching journey is having a sounding board to talk through things with, and being held accountable. Also, just the simple fact of having weekly sessions meant that I was mentally keeping track of what I was doing and how I was doing as the days went on.
Shannon is very practical, to-the-point, honest, and drives accountability. If you’re ready to take responsibility and be open she’s great. If you want useless advice look elsewhere. She offers real solutions to put into practice right away. Thank you again, Shannon. It's really made a difference in my attitude, and I look forward to seeing the ripples in other aspects of my life as well..
I am in a much better headspace today! I can design a life that I deserve!
My outlook on life has definitely taken a shift. I looked at life situations in a very cynical way as a way of dealing with life’s knock backs. What I learned was that I was unhappy with myself and only that great change can only come from within. A major self realisation... I had always sought the acceptance and validation of others. By having the conviction to admit that I need to love myself more meant that a lot of life’s pressures and other people’s judgements seemed to matter less. I am in a much better headspace today and better for it!
I came into the program seeking quick tips on how to get ahead at work and deal with difficult people. But I was quickly made to realise Life itself and my very existence is a much broader palette with which I can design a life that I deserve. Happiness can only be granted to yourself if you allow it. I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking for this ultimate truth i.e. why are we here? What truly makes us happy is what is most important in life.
My life may have different outcomes had I not decided to work with Shannon
I felt stuck in life and it was causing problems with my work, social interaction and my relationship. I realised I’ve not been growing as a person for a long time. I fear that I would quit before the program could help me but it turned out that I enjoyed every session. The coaching journey has helped me see things differently than before and I know now that I have the tools needed to continue to make the changes I want to see happen.
The coaching journey has helped me through some rough and tough times in my life that may have different outcomes had I not decided to work with Shannon. This is the biggest outcome for me."

My overall mindset has changed
My biggest fear before starting the coaching journey with Shannon was that I may not be able to overcome the desire to change my thinking and increase my confidence. However, this didn’t come true. After the coaching journey, I am less concerned about how others see me; I have been able to develop strategies to deal with different circumstances, and overcoming negative self-talk. My overall mindset has changed. I have been equipped with the strategies to deal with life’s different hurdles and setbacks, and overall feel more self-confident.
I must admit, not having participated in something like this before, I did not know what to expect, or even how to prepare. Shannon was easy to open up to, and very patience. She allowed me to explore different subjects in a safe and trusting environment.
My self-confidence went over the roof! I never felt so confident about my future!
My main challenge was a combination of procrastination, self-sabotage, and negative thinking patterns.
I just had my biggest business success, something I never would be expected to come true, and it baffled me that I still was procrastinating as soon as a slightly bigger problem came up.
In the coaching journey, I learned a lot about myself. It was exciting and exhilarating. Every new insight have the potential to change my life and be part of the solution to my challenges. I always look forward to our next session Shannon. It felt like I’m an athlete who is discussing with his coach last week’s training and create a new training plan for the following week.
You've provided an environment where I could talk openly without any filter about my thoughts, worries, and past experiences. You've helped me increase my self-awareness and clarity, so I'm able to understand my behaviour patterns better. The questions that you asked me.... I never would have asked myself and that leads to new insights about myself.
You've given me tools and techniques that I have integrated into my life that brought a lot of value.
I'm able to increase the baseline of my happiness, and my self-confidence went through the roof. I've made great progress, and I never felt so confident about my future!
I was able to turn my life around...
Shannon can sense what will work with a person and what won’t and her practical approach goes right to solving the issue at hand. She will not involve you in endless pointless conversations about your past. She is like a mechanic for your emotional and mental well-being, she analyses, diagnoses and treats.
I took a few sessions of cognitive behavioural therapy which got me over the worst of the panic attacks but didn’t solve the issue over the long term.
Shannon have immensely helped me in a phenomenally short amount of time. My days were filled with anxiety and I had no idea how to get out of it. She helped me discover the source of the problem within our first session and gave me tools to make myself feel better and make my life less overwhelming.
In the end, none of my external circumstances changed, I was as busy professionally and personally as always, but Shannon taught me how to let go of the controls I was forcing on myself and those around me and replace my anxiety with a sense of peace and confidence.
With your help in just 6 sessions, I was able to turn my life around and enjoy my precious downtime with my kids without any anxiety. Thank you Shannon. I have grown a lot with your guidance and for that I'm very grateful to you.
