Living Excellently with Shan Rees – For Women to Develop Deep Confidence and Sparkling Self-esteem

My calling and my passion is to inspire women to connect with their female power, the power of being female. The work starts with loving and accepting yourself exactly as you are:

  • live in the world authentically in your own rhythm
  • honour the magic inside you
  • develop Deep Confidence to shine
  • in essence, free your feisty female power and fly!

Deep Confidence comes from within, from accepting and honouring yourself, living in alignment with your values and being true to yourself. It starts with being, and the ‘doing’ follows.

About my work

For over three decades I have successfully guided hundreds of people to grow into who they really are. To this end, I have run a wide variety of courses, including From Stress to Self-Management, Peace begins Within, How to Be Happy and Ageing Excellently, to name a few.

My signature courses are Assertion Training and Developing Self-Esteem and Deep Confidence.

I’ve worked in a variety of settings, including Great Ormond Street Hospital, as well as The National Film Society and Adult Education. Previously, all my courses were face-to-face, but having moved from London to a rural area in West Wales (I am Welsh), I am extending my offer online as well.

Why might you want to work with me?

Are you successful in your chosen field and wondering if there isn’t something more to life? Or perhaps you feel you are not using yourself to the full and want to become more confident? Do you want to build self-esteem and learn to value yourself? Do you have concerns about how women are treated in the world and want to take action around that? Maybe you are no longer happy with the way you are living and are ready to live uncompromisingly in your truth. Perhaps you have problems creating boundaries and saying ‘no’.

I can help!

Currently, I run Sound Your Note in the World – Self-Esteem and Confidence-Building for Women which is a 5-week course, Free Your Feisty Female Power and Fly face-to-face; as well as Female Fulfilment Coaching.
