It’s Not The Mask You’re Wearing
It’s What’s Underneath That Matters
It’s Time To Free Yourself...
No more struggling,
or constant self-criticism 

You might be like Sara who constantly beats herself up...

“People say I think too much. I go over and over things in my head! It’s exhausting!

Or maybe you’re like Steven

“I find myself totally drained at the end of the day.
 I don’t seem to cope as well as everyone else. It’s a real effort”

How about Janet

“I use food to comfort, and soothe myself. I can’t stop eating. I’m so frustrated with myself”

Do you feel like Clare?

“I’m so worried that I’ll be alone forever!"

I support people from around the world through feeling anxious, frustrated, ashamed or unloved. I’m a licensed therapist and qualified coach, working with compassion, experience, knowledge, and a touch of humour.
I specialise in group programmes for change.

"The Understanding your Eating Program has helped my confidence, made me feel more powerful. I enjoyed the community spirit of the group and the strength I felt in working with strong women. I really enjoyed the final session about celebrating the positives in life, that is something which resonated for me."

"Working with Shelley on my various issues, has been truly one of the most profound experiences of my life. It’s up there with my Mum first teaching me to write my name as a small child. My inner child will be forever grateful to you for helping me to connect with him, and to gain the understanding to use equally important tools as my mum’s earliest lesson, to enrich and expand my life."
