Lets Get Personal:
Life leaves bruises on us all, the unexpected forcing choice upon us. Shelley believes we can reclaim any lost power, passion, dream or belief in life and start again if need be. This can be a challenging and frightening thing; it takes immense courage and determination to keep focused on that which is right, no matter the circumstances. Many find under such circumstances that hidden gifts and wisdom come to the surface, so much more than was ever thought. But at times circumstances may seem too big, too intimidating and extra support and encouragement is needed.
Shelley seems to have an innate understanding that it is not the amount of times you fall that matters, but rather how often you get up. She is passionate about assisting others to healing, claiming freedom and liberation for themselves. Liberation from a place of hurt, oppression and all sorts of barriers and ruts. freedom from limiting belief systems, unhelpful behaviourpatterns and when and if it is right to let go.
Sharing a bit of her story: Shelley has a natural instinct to overcome her own limitations and losses. She lost her baby Annalise through cot death, has faced a complex and rare divorce situation, had life saving operations and is the eldest of 7 children. Diagnosed with dyslexia she is challenged by many things not least her grammar and spelling. However her life’s journey has taught her many things and knows about the effects of heartache, betrayal, turbulence and physical anguish. One of the many liberating effects of her story though is that little shocks her. Many have found her willingness to be transparent when appropriate, has helped with interrupting the myth that we must always pretend everything is perfect. Shelley whole heartily believes we are pilgrims on the road, no one better than another.
