About us

Hi I'm Shona,

I have over 22 years of coaching experience and a passion for helping my clients make the changes they need so they can live the life they want.

Are you...

  • Wishing to reduce your anxiety and feel like the new 'old you' again?
  • Feeling stuck or unfulfilled?
  • Lacking in confidence?
  • Scared of what people think of you?
  • Searching  for your spiritual and not sure where to start?

Whatever has brought you here, I can help you.

My approach

I work holistically and spiritually. I provide NeuChem (Brain) Coaching, a proven model, rooted in neuroscience. It achieves a 29% increase in wellbeing immediately and has a 95% success rate. It cuts through anxiety and fear, to bring grounding and peace.

As a Holistic Coach I use Neuroscience, 3 Principles & NLP techniques to bring quick and long-lasting results.

I am also a space holder, energy healer and cacao medicine woman and   I bring all these skills and energies to my work on  a bespoke basis.

I have had the pleasure of working with many different people helping them to progress in their lives. Life coaching provides support, focus and clarity. People have found that regular one-to-one coaching is an effective way of realising their full potential. You can be everything you want and achieve your goals, because you are an amazing person and this is the first step of your dream becoming reality.

I will help you

  • grow in confidence and self-awareness
  • reduce anxiety
  • enhance your leadership ability
  • continue your personal development so that you will achieve your goals and turn your dreams into reality.

I will help you become aware of your thoughts and how they may impact on your life today. We can always choose another way of thinking and therefore choose another reality. Our patterns of behaviour in adulthood are created in childhood.  They become our survival code.  We can change these to be more empowering and positive.

What if you had the power to decide exactly how you feel?

What if you had a reset button, and your default was a  calm, happy, more productive you?

Coaching works so beautifully because it gives you the opportunity to talk. Talk as you have never talked before without being interrupted, criticised or laughed at. This is the most powerful experience. Many clients have said that this along with the questions I have asked has changed their outlook and ultimately their life.

Whatever has brought you here, I can help you. I look forward to hearing from you.

Feedback from clients:

'In 2017 I was diagnosed with PTSD which led to 3 suicide attempts. After many talking therapies some of the symptoms eased, slightly. Striving to get “me” back for the sake of my loved ones I was offered 1:1 coaching with Shona. It has changed my life, she has succeeded where others failed. I am currently 6 weeks into being free from anxiety/overwhelmed and everything else that comes with PTSD. I can’t recommend Shona highly enough.'
