Rory Gilmore – New Zealand

Photographer | Graphic Designer

I started out as a doubter and a sceptic. But over the years Shelley has proven to be an investment in myself that I cannot overstate. She has helped me in so many areas that it hard to pick one area as being more important than any other. By this I mean that she has supplied unequalled advice, guidance and strategies that have helped me in both my business and personal life to an extent that leads me recommend her unequivocally as a true, all round and complete "Life Coach". 

Shelley shows a unique talent in not only honing in and focussing on the areas that I have needed to tackle in my own life, but in using her own wide-ranging life experiences to apply deep insight and intelligence to both my relationship and career issues. In my opinion Shelley's expertise, sensitivity, insight and all-round people skills far transcend the services I would have expected from such a service.

If you ever have any need for direction, planning or simply understanding in either your personal or your business life, I do not hesitate to recommend Shelley Whitehead.

Dr Kim Jobst – Consultant and Director at Functional Shift Consulting Ltd

Shelley Whitehead is a professional's professional, a teacher's teacher - one of those who leads the way by example and who walks her talk. There is nothing like a wounded healer to learn from, work with, and to consult for one's own and one's clients' therapeutic journeys. Shelley is one such Healer, guide and mentor. I do not hesitate to recommend Shelley to my clients.

Shelley is a wonderfully intuitive and generous individual with a light touch in the most sensitive of areas, and the expertise to work effectively with those who are grieving. I found her support incredibly helpful following the loss of a close family member and would not hesitate to recommend her as a counsellor.

JONNIE – UK

Working with Shelley helped change my life at a very challenging time. I was very low emotionally and mentally after the breakdown of my marriage. It was affecting my health, business and productivity.

Shelley brought a calmness that in turn was also motivating. From day one of working together she helped me see there was light at the end of the tunnel. I use that expression not as a cliché but a very real perspective.

I felt hope and positivity for the first time in a long while. Hope that I could re-find myself and assurances that the vision I had for my life was indeed possible. I believe, that if I had met Shelley years ago, the outcome of my marriage may have been different.

Working with Shelley has saved me so much. She is genuine, passionate and vastly experienced. I was quickly able to feel connected to her and happy to trust in her completely.  If you care for yourself – and your family – then contact Shelley immediately.  She is the best person you could commit your heart and head to as you follow a process that really, really works.

STEPHANIE BURTON – London

Shelley J Whitehead is an amazing coach in the areas of love, relationships, dating and self-worth in particular. I recently spent a day with her as I was so severely disorientated after my husband left me and as I am going through my divorce.

She put me at ease with so many bewildering questions:

– I am so afraid of repeating old patterns, how do I stop that?
– How do I make sure I NEVER settle and undervalue myself in a relationship again?
– How will I EVER trust anybody again?
– How will I truly know who is compatible for me now that I'm in a different phase of my life?

I can HIGHLY recommend Shelley. I felt so loved, nurtured and guided, not just with tools of the mind but also with the heart of spirit.

Thank you Shelley!!!

Angela – Yorkshire

I have worked with some of the top coaches from the BBC and the Tony Robbins Foundation. All excellent in their own way. But I found I was consistently coming up against a brick wall on the relationship front, and resigned to the fact that I would always be single. That was until I came across Shelley.

She is an excellent relationship coach, who works from the heart and soul to empower and uplift her clients to make the right changes to be ready for a loving relationship. Great changes have occurred in my life as a result of my work with Shelley. She is a true miracle worker.

Patricia – London

Shelley is an extremely dedicated and passionate coach who will give you complete commitment in helping to achieve the goals or changes in your life that you feel are necessary for you to grow. She does this in an extremely professional manner and pulls from many personal experiences and journeys that have given her great insight into the many challenges we face throughout our lives. I cannot recommend a coach highly enough.

Simon, Copywriter – London

Not only is Shelley exceptionally talented and committed to the work she does, she has a bedside manner that makes you feel like you are the last two people left alive. That’s how dedicated she is to our sessions together.

After the first of many sessions that gave me back my self-esteem, that made me walk with my head held high, I felt reassured that I wasn’t someone to be trodden on. I was special, bright, smart, attractive to the opposite sex and most importantly, there was someone out there for me. I am blessed that I called Shelley when I did because, without question, I’d be in the tall grass if it wasn’t for her.

I cannot thank her enough for helping me get my life back, for creating the awareness of who I am and what I deserve. The next partner I have will be incredibly lucky and that’s all thanks to the tools and self-appreciation Shelley has instilled in me.

Shelley – it’s possible you don’t realise the profoundly positive effect you have had on my life but I can assure you of one thing. You were there when I needed you most and for that I will be eternally grateful.

Mary, Journalist

Shelley is an extraordinary coach, with a great light and deep integrity. Her one-to-one sessions are wonderful and very healing. But she is also there to hold your hand, by phone, email or text, when you might otherwise be alone with your thoughts and doubts. For me, that has included a 10-minute pep talk before I headed to the office, and a beautiful and funny email when I was in India, determined to work and internet date at the same time!

Shelley is a true visionary, but combined with this is a lovely down-to-earth quality that roots her very much in the here and now.

Little things I have learned have been transformational. For example, I always felt compelled to tell a potential partner, or friends who asked me, the true facts about why my relationship with my daughter’s father had not worked (an alcoholic who decided to up-ship when I became pregnant). I didn’t realize how much that was reinforcing my perception of myself as having failed, both as a mother and partner. Now when I use Shelley’s suggested line, “We had different values,” it feels different and remarkably healing.

The fact that Shelley told me from the start that she knew I would meet someone extraordinary special has propelled me into the mindset of attracting that person into my life.

If you are ready to welcome the great love you deserve, as well as a huge amount of joy into your existence, then I wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful woman and coach.

Christina – Salon Owner

When a huge challenge is before your eyes and you have no idea how to tackle it and feel that you will never, and I mean EVER, be able to overcome or even see past it, you will understand the position I was in two years ago.

I felt helpless, hopeless and futureless. Shelley helped me to set achievable goals and believe that I would be able to get through the difficulties I had to face. She was the first person to believe that I could get through it and gave me hope. Shelley was supportive, calming and non-judgemental during our sessions and helped me through a family problem I had struggled with for 8 years.

Since I experienced coaching with Shelley, I've got married and am a mother to two beautiful babies. I love my life. Thank you Shelley.

Helen Bailey – Planet Grief UK

I met Shelley 10 weeks after I witnessed my husband of two decades drowning whilst we were on holiday.  It is no understatement to say she has been instrumental in repairing my shattered life: repairing, nurturing and sometimes challenging me as she walked with me through my grief.  Shelley not only has a wealth of experience in dealing with those who have suffered loss, she has an innate gift of compassion, insight and empathy, and a warmth which enveloped me from the moment I met her.

Traditional bereavement counselling did not work for me: I needed not just to cry and reminisce about my old life, but to start to put some practical steps in place to build a new one.  I walked into Shelley’s house for my first session terrified by the future, tortured by the past and consumed by grief.

Two hours later I left and, for the first time since the accident, felt a glimmer of hope for the future, knowing I had Shelley by my side. She continues to always be there for me, every step of the way.  Put quite simply, she has turned my life around.

Bereavement and break-ups are some of the worst experiences anyone ever goes through. The warmth and care Shelley gives is like a warm blanket on a dark, stormy night. She is impeccably knowledgeable on guiding you out of the darkness and into the light of love, laughter and joy again.
