Straight talking Business & Mindset Coach helping women believe in themselves again to achieve their goals 

Hi, I’m Shelley a straight talking Business and Mindset Coach for women who are ready to get out of their own way but need a hand taking that first step. I’m super passionate about helping women in business (their own or someone else’s) discover the power of their mindset and break through their own self-imposed barriers.

Who does a Business and Mindset Coach work with?

I love helping high achieving women accomplish their goals (in business and in life) by working on their mindset, which is so often holding them back and stopping them from taking their business to the next level. Helping female founders rediscover their own sense of self-belief is what inspires me to do what I do best … help you unlock your mindset so you can see how truly incredible you are and grow that business of yours.

I’ll help you to understand and identify your current beliefs about yourself and the world around you, change the ones you want to, and encourage you to build the courage and the confidence to take action towards your goals. Truth bomb … most of the obstacles holding us back are constructed in our own heads!

More about me …

I’m wife of Mr B, sister, auntie, fiercely loyal friend and someone who wants to support as many women as possible to feel confident in themselves and become all they want to be. If you follow me on socials, you’ll know that I’m a keen early morning runner, I adore being by the seaside (Mr B and I tied the knot by the beach in Whitstable) and I love to travel and explore new countries and their cuisines (and if there’s wine involved, even better).
One of my top goals in life is to achieve financial freedoso
 that I’m able to travel, see the world and realise the dream of living in Italy one day in the not-too-distant future.

I’m someone that has a pretty strong mindset, clear goals and, most of the time at least, I confidently take action, genuinely feeling like I’m moving forward on the right path.
It hasn’t always been that way though. Let me take you back to 2015

I was on year 22 of being on the corporate ladder, working crazy hours, earning a decent salary and heading for the milestone moment that is the big 40. Unexpectedly, in a 12-month period, my life changed. After my wedding to Mr B and my own health scare, my father-in-law was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, which turned our world on its head for the next three years. In 2018 we sadly had to say goodbye to him and I had questions whirring around my head that were getting louder and louder. What was all the hard work for? Was this how we wanted to live a life that’s so precious? Was I happy? Was I miserable? Was I fulfilled? Where was I going? The list went on …

In the spring of 2019, eight months after the passing of my father-in-law, my beautiful mother-inlaw was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Just three months later we said goodbye. It was heart-breaking. Mr B and I found that we had a new goal …. one day we wanted to live in the beautiful Italian home my inlaws had built and we had taken on.

I’d already starting working with a coach myself in order to explore what I really wanted my life to look like. The outcome was a bit of a surprise …. I wanted to become a coach myself! I didn’t want my life to look the way it did and follow the direction it was heading in. And so, I embarked on a journey of learning, self-discovery, and self-discipline and trained as a Life Coach. I was more certain than ever that life was for living and shouldn’t be about that elusive one day ….

Mr B and I set about planning how I could walk away from a now almost 25-year corporate career and build a full-time coaching business. I had the bug; I was coaching in all my spare time. I had goals, dreams of a different life …. but making the leap was scary. Particularly as my leap came just before we were hit by a global pandemic. That definitely wasn’t in the plan!

I’ve dug deep. I’ve worked on me. I discovered I was able to learn the “how” part of running a business pretty quickly, but what I also discovered was that my mindset was going to be the reason I wouldn’t succeed if I didn’t face up to it. So, I did exactly that. I worked on me and, as a result, I was able to help my clients get a layer deeper.

I was studying, learning, working on myself and wanting to help women just like me, who knew exactly what they needed to do but just weren’t doing it. Why? Because they were scared, full of self-doubt and not truly sure they deserved to. That’s mindset, that’s limiting beliefs, that’s self-sabotage and I’m determined to help you see that you CAN break free of all of the above!

Whether you are at the beginning of your entrepreneurial journey, already running a successful business or stepping up to the next level on that corporate ladder … I can help you get clear, get courageous, get confident and believe you CAN be, do or have all that you dream of. It takes work. It’s not easy but it’s worth every single step. My approach is honest and challenging. I won’t let you hide in your head; I won’t let you convince yourself it’s too hard. I will support you, guide you, challenge you and build you up so that you can move forward.

I pride myself on keeping it real. I share my own challenges; I share tactics and strategies.

My mantra is “Awareness is the first step towards change.” Once you can see how your mindset is helping or hindering you, you can take that step forward.

Are you ready for change too?
