“Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.” Sun Tzu
"It would take too long to recommend Shana as she deserves, so let me put it simply - don't even bother considering anyone else for coaching, Shana is THE coach. Save yourself some time and just take the step with Shana, you won't regret it. Anthony."Anthony RockliffeMaster Life Coach and Naturopathic Nutritionist
"Shana is a first rate NLP Life Coach who has changed my life in terms of my outlook, my belief system and completely obliterated my limitations. Since my Personal Breakthrough with Shana I have achieved great success in all areas of my life from relationships to career - I know I can achieve my dreams. I see Shana once a month for an NLP session to ensure I stay at the top of my game personally and professionally."Rhian LindleySenior Marketing Professional
"Shana changed my life - simple as that. Her qualifications are a given - she knows everything there is to know about the process of NLP and its applications. Shana, however, has a beautifully personal and empathetic style. I trusted her implicitly and she made me feel very comfortable. She has a lot of tools at her disposal and she knows how to deal with a whole range of personal and career related issues. Simply put, spending several days with Shana gave me the ability to re-awaken the truth of what it is that I really need to be doing on this planet - and it gave me the confidence to make the necessary changes in order to realise those dreams. I'm now living the life I know I should be living and I am much, much happier. Money well spent! My new path is much truer to who I really am - my working life is effortless and it makes me happy. The strength that gives me is enormous and I will always be grateful to Shana for working her magic and opening my eyes."George StothardChief Copywriter (Dubai and London)
"Shana has shown that nothing is impossible and you can work in whatever field you like - you just have to have focus and intention. She has shown this herself and clearly walks the walk and talks the talk. She is a strong, focused and empathetic. Her down to earth nature creates for a wonderful climate which means people open up to Shana. She is highly motivational, and results orientated. If you would like to grow and develop personally and are looking for a life coach, Shana is your lady and I have no hesitation in recommending her.

"You would think that having spent 30 very successful years in corporate life, the vast majority at a senior level and being entrusted with running a number of Global brands, that I would have everything under control. The reality was that was far from the truth and that I had a number of self limiting beliefs holding me back from truly living the life to the potential that I desired and deserved. Shana is an amazing coach who helped me realise that I could truly achieve those goals I aimed for but never thought I could achieve by erasing those beliefs and putting into place beliefs that I am now realising. If you have any doubts in your mind, in whatever context, I urge you to get in touch with Shana for a life changing experience. "Mike HoffExecutive Coach
"Shana is a vibrant and caring person. Her understanding of people and her ability to bring out the best in people can only be described as a gift. She is passionate about what she does and has always displayed exemplary dedication to producing results"Peter RedelinghuysSales Director - MEA at ITSS
"I now run my own successful business - people want to do business with me. I have the confidence just to be myself and to do the work I want to do, I choose who I want to work with. I decide my own hours. My clients pay me double what they pay others in a similar business because they want to work with me. I am in no doubt this is because of the time I spent with Shana. And the great thing is that I thoroughly enjoyed that time. I found out who I am, what I want, and found my direction. I am achieving my goals unconsciously. My friends and colleagues tell me I have changed, more easy going and relaxed. I like it. Thanks ShanaOliver ClarkeProfessional Photographer
"Life coaching with Shana has been an incredible journey. She has helped me to make positive changes to my life by equipping me with the tools and the attitude to move my life forward in a new direction. Shana is a not only a great listener.... she also talked me through my issues and concerns, helping me to understand the root cause for the limiting beliefs I held. She taught me to put ideas and routines in place which have given me clarity and confidence for the future. In times of doubt or uncertainty I always recall the work we did together ....her words are always with me speaking the truth.Tamara BerringtonTeacher Development specialist
Shana has been a tremendous coach over the past year and a half. I started with the Personal Breakthrough Journey which is a well structured programme on a very manageable schedule, and the results were immediate. Shana also provided me with a personality assessment survey and a thorough guided analysis of who I am and what motivates me. It's been an invaluable opportunity to hone in on my qualitative and quantitative strengths and weaknesses, to better align myself with these qualities in both my career and personal life. This has been one of the most meaningful investments in myself and I am grateful to have been introduced to her. I highly recommend Shana if you're feeling stuck and in need of kind, professional guidance to see a clear and positive way forward. Thank you Shana!Andrea SecundaManufacturing Consultant
It’s no secret that oil and water don’t mix. That said, a car needs oil and water to operate efficiently. When individuals are unable to lead together, those underneath suffer. I was introduced to Shana at a very pivotal moment. Shana’s ability to use modern tools to psychoanalyze the characteristics of managers and leaders provided insights I never considered. Yet, when paired with her expertise and candor, we were able to analyze, trait by trait, how to effectively manage alongside other management styles with success. But most of all, her coaching during our journey allowed me to leverage unknown strengths and highlight weaknesses I’ve never considered. And that’s when you realize that you weren’t actually talking about just your career the entire time. You were working on you. I thank Shana for the inner peace I found during a highly stressful time in my career. I recommend Shana to any leader looking to humanize their personal growth and those they surround. I look forward to round two shortly.Jamie AquilaTechnologist. Designer. Architect.
Shana is an astounding personal coach with a great skill set. I had the pleasure of receiving a coaching session from Shana and she gave me insight so distilled and well explained that I was able to apply it in both the short term and the long term. I wasn't sure quite what to expect out of our first coaching session, but she was very approachable, extremely easy to talk to, and very well-spoken. I recommend Shana to anyone who is at a point in their career where they want drastic improvement regardless of whether they are doing well or not since she will make you aware of things about yourself that you did not even fathom before.Bryan Urias
Shana is the first of two coaches I have worked with over the last 10 years (the second being more business focused). I met her at a time when I felt both lost and trapped in different areas of my life, and a lack of confidence was holding me back from doing anything about it. Shana’s approach was educational, direct and at the same time empathetic, and over the course of a year, she helped me to believe in myself more and make some bold decisions. I credit much of my life and success today to the sessions we had together. I would highly recommend Shana to anyone who feels stuck or is low in confidence and wants to create change in their life.Zeta Yarwood
Much can and has been said about the challenges faced by woman trying to break into the filmmaking industry. For female directors especially, the root of the problem grows so much deeper than institutional biases. Any given fund or mentoring opportunity repeats the same buzzwords: they’re looking to back “a unique, individual voice”. Meanwhile so much of our upbringing and the culture we grew up in is aimed at the opposite: conforming us into a pre-designed concept of girlhood and womanhood, consequently suppressing any individual characteristics that don’t fit the model. How can we showcase our individual voices when we were conditioned to silence it? Shana has been absolutely instrumental in my process of understanding this paradox and finding the path forward, towards peeling all the artificially imposed layers off. The way she explains and applies NLP makes some customarily abstract concepts from the domain of consciousness and mindset perfectly approachable. In consequence, though I originally came in looking for career guidance, I came out of the Personal Breakthrough program armed in a much deepened understanding of myself as a person overall: the artificial limitations that held me back and the deeply held truths that now inspire me to reach further and further in all avenues of professional and personal life. The added bonus is that Shana’s voice now lives rent free in my mind and not only am I more tuned into identifying opportunities that can take me in the right direction, but whenever they appear, a marching drum sounds in my head cheering me on.Kasia KaczmarekFilm Director
