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 and old unhelpful patterns, not fully able to speak up your mind and 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 ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS FOR BRINGING YOUR LIFE INTO ALIGNMENT
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 inhabiting that space.
There are parts that are wiser and more powerful than your fears, ego or sense of not enough. I imagine those parts breaking the walls that divid you from within, giving you new space to breath freely into a bigger expansive self.
There is a path leading to your vision, hidden by the dense forest of old wounds. I imagine you shining the light of awareness to guide you in rewriting old narratives, freeing a forward movement that helps make sense of 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 as 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.
My own personal experience and the years of working with many people taught me that satisfying and long-lasting results happen when you 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.
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 the negative 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, for example anger, sadness, jealousy

If you're curious to see how Life Alignment one-on-one works for your specific needs, how well we jam together and what I can offer you - your next step is very easy:
Click the link below to fill out an application form. This will help me get to know you a little
When I receive the form I'll reach out to schedule a FREE get-together 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 give you the necessary details about my coaching packages
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 what packages I have to offer you, I welcome you to a free get-together call
Why the free call?
I know how it can feel risky to take that first step to reach out for help.
To keep you safe, your mind will find all kinds of reasons why not to reach out ("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...). I want to make it easier for you to not hold back for one more unnecessary moment from reaching the life you crave deeply in your heart.
Also, I want to make sure our vibes work well together. I have a thing about making sure I'm feeling 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.
How do I know if I'm ready for this?
Every person has a breaking point.
I hate to see it happen, but I do. People who have run themselves ragged without getting the needed support and attention, their heart is sore, their relationships are painful …. And once they go over a certain edge, something in their heart and willpower breaks, and they either sink into submission to the way things are or no longer believe that life could be different, quietly carrying their disappointment within themselves. Some even fall into constant tiredness or become rigid and impatient with themselves or others.
Be honest with yourself: How close are you to that edge? How long are you willing to carry on like this and push yourself to the edge? Over the years, I’ve become more and more honest with myself, learned to ask for help when I needed it, paused and taken a break, chosen to nourish myself rather than pushing it for just a bit more. It wasn’t always like that because it’s hard to open yourself to others, yet with enough times of finding myself beyond that breaking point, I've come to appreciate the power of good support.
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 you're more interested in trying 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 love meditation 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!
