Where the life you want
and the life you have
Do you long to just be fully and beautifully yourself?
Without feeling you're too much, not enough or reduced by shame and guilt..
Are you ready to heal old wounds?
Give space to grow from loss, grief, or unfulfilled dreams...
Is your heart attracted to connect with something bigger?
To get through challenging feelings
or important life questions
and discover the powerful woman within,
free to claim your space!
"What is it you plan to do with your one wild precious life?"
When something in life just doesn't feel right,
when you have a sense of being stuck,
or you keep going through the same old loops,
it can get quite frustrating.
There's an underlying feeling that where you long to be in your life
is out of synch with the life you actually have.
You probably already have tools, maybe many,
yet you're not sure how to close the gap
between you and the life you want.
You sense or perhap know from experince
it's possible, just out of reach somehow!
What you do know
is that whatever it is, it's making it difficult for you to
feel fulfilled and truly happy
and perhaps that with each day passing you're not true to your heart
You are not alone.
I can imagine that if you
don't know what it's like to get someone
to help you with your most intimate feelings and life struggles
it can be scary to trust another person to be able to
guide you in the right direction.
If in the past you've invested energy, time, trust,
not to mention money, in working through 'issues',
I get it that it might still not be easy to step into another commitment,
to get into a deep exploration or face yourself and say
that you can't get through this one alone.
Few things I've learned over the years...
No matter what insights you've gained about why your experiences and feelings are what they are, if your heart isn't in it you’ll find it practically impossible to follow through with commitments for growth or change.
Without awareness of how your body is profoundly engaged in the process of unlocking what you don’t like about your life - you’ll still get triggered by the same relationship types or unhelpful patterns, not fully able to speak up your mind or express your needs.
The best ‘how to’ practices and advice will never be a replacement for learning how to respect your own rhythm and trust your inner wisdom.
If you’re not being asked the poignant questions
that will make you realise
you’ve lost a precious jewel you once had,
you won’t go out looking for it.
THE 3 GROUND-BREAKING ELEMENTS
FOR BRINGING YOUR LIFE INTO ALIGNMENT
Knowing yourself is not the same as knowing things about yourself.
In you, there are parts which are wiser and stronger than any fear or concern you experience right now. I imagine you using those parts to break the walls of the ego, so you can heal any inner sense of division and inhabit a space of ease and freedom.
There is a space free from judgment and full of clarity, that allows self acceptance to be the strongest voice from within. I imagine you claiming that voice as your natural expression.
Change is absolutely possible -- each time you choose the choice that's based on love.
Hidden by the dense forest of old wounds awareness shines the light on that love. It helps you rewrite disempowering inner narratives and design a forward-movement that makes sense to your life.
"Before you tell your life what you
intend to do with it,
listen for what it intends to do with you.
Before you tell your life what truths and values you have decided to live up to,
let your life tell you what truths you embody,
what values you represent.”
HI, I'M SHELLY
I'm an extro-introvert, a rebel against labels, who loves to be surprised and find new ways of expression.
I've been driven all my life by the hunger to understand what it means to be JUST ME. It terrified and fascinated me at the same time.
My journey was not a straight line. I was a computer programmer, a professional dancer, a chef, a coffee shop owner and a business consultant for effective social change.
Over the past 20 years I've sat in over a dozen long silent meditation retreats getting intimate with the scariest inner demons and most precious places within myself. I have had years of psychotherapy, countless workshops and trainings in family constellation, yoga, Thai massage, breath work, aikido, psychodrama and other healing and self-growth modalities.
I believe that we're all wired with what we need to solve our questions and face the more demanding / charged situations, but this knowledge is stripped out of us from day one.
I help those who live a connected and engaged life when they deal with charged feeling and want to know, trust and express themselves more deeply.
Life Alignment is an amalgamation of all my personal and professional experiences moulded into a therapeutic coaching system based on awareness.
So far, I have worked with more than a hundred individuals worldwide in both private and retreat settings.
I care for a world where people are autonomous in their feelings and creative thought, feel loved and are able to express love freely.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM LIFE ALIGNMENT
ONE ON ONE
A coaching journey is tailored according to your specific needs. There's no one-size-fits-all agenda you need to squueze yourself into.
For satisfying and long-lasting results I've learned that one needs to go all-in and commit to a minimum of 3 months one-to-one.
The magic of intensity helps you not only to break through old patterns or current challenges but also to create an embodied way of being that sticks with you.
There are two Life alignment packages -- either 3 or 6 month. Single session are not available.
Packages' fees start from 2500CHF.
Based on heart-to-heart conversations and awareness practices, our focus can be on different types of life scenarios such as:
● Finding your way through life changes, fresh ones or ones you've held back from for years
● Cultivating healthy boundaries and saying No without feeling like an asshole
● Learning how to speak up, trust yourself, express your needs without shame and guilt
● Navigating your way through relationship issues
● Discovering a sense of belonging
● Healing from a troubling impact your relationship with your mother has had on you
● Making sense of life when you feel lost, confused, despondent or demotivated
● Healing from trauma
● Dealing with grief, loss, burn out or depression
● Resolving challenging feelings that seem to stand in your way, such as anger, sadness, jealousy

Click the link below to book a time for a call of 30-60 minuets
Fill out an application form to will help me get to know you a little
You'll receive a confirmation email with a zoom link to our call
The call will allow us to experience our connection, and you will have the opportunity to introduce me to that part or parts of yourself that you feel need attention. Together we will see what seeds we will need to plant for you to grow a life-space that feels nourishing, alive and rooted in the vision you have for yourself
At the end of the call, if you feel right about continuing the work together, I will share the details about coaching packages that can fit your needs
If you want to get clearer on how Life Alignment can help you with your specific needs, have a real human contact beyond this two-dimensional space and learn which package would work best for you, you're welcome to a free get-together call
Why the free call?
It can feel really tender to 'pick up the phone' and begin telling a stranger the most intimate wishes and struggles and also consider a long term commitment. My wish is that a free engagement will release some of the tension.
Our mind can come up with many reasons why it's not safe (through the mind's eyes) to reach out for support –– "I need to get my thoughts sorted out first" ; "I don't have the money/energy/time" ; "I should try and solve this one by myself first". If a free chat helps you get support immediately I'd like that for you.
Also, I want for myself to see if our vibes chime well together. Just like you, I too commit here for a journey and I'd like to feel happy and excited when I'm working with people.
Am I going to feel pressured to buy?
This call is not a sale's pitch. It's not a manipulation to get you into a trap.
Hopefully this page has given you enough to see if making contact is the right next step. If what you've read resonantes with you, getting in touch is more about finding out how Life Alignment can serve you personally, get a more detailed picture of what could be possible through this work.
How do I know if I'm ready for this?
This is a really personal question, because what does 'ready really mean?! For some people ready means reaching a breaking point, for others it's a sense of ripeness.
We hate to admit that but, we tend to seek out for help mostly when we're reaching a breaking point. We run ourselves ragged without getting the needed support and attention, our heart is sore, relationships are a painful topic …. And once we go over a certain edge, something in the heart and willpower breaks. What follows is sinking into submission to the way things are or a lack of believe that life could be different. Some quietly carrying their disappointment within themselves. Others fall into constant tiredness or become rigid and impatient with themselves or others.
Be honest with yourself: How close are you to the edge? How long are you willing to carry on like this and push yourself to the limit of "I can take it"?
And if after all you still feel and hear your heart's wishes calling out for some relief and fulfilment, then in my view, you are ready.
Who is it not for?
You're not ready to get into a committed coaching journey where you'll be challenged to move towards the space you want to be in your life. You're just not there yet and feel more called to try some of this, some of that.
Also, you don't have to define yourself as 'spiritual'. But if anything close to spiritual or spirituality gives you a rash, then I'm sorry my friend, you'll get a rash.
Do I need to know how to meditate to work with you?
Not at all. Meditation is a means to an end. The end, love, is living life. How you do that is a matter of choice (hopefully a conscious one).
There are infinite ways to awaken awareness and become more full and mindful. We'll work with whatever speaks to you.
How much time do I actually need to invest in between sessions?
I love your question! It's up to you. It doesn't take a genius to understand that the more time and energy you devote to practice the more it benefits you.
Life Alignment is specifically designed to be incorporated into your daily life easily with no added time invested. It works miracles!
