About

D.SHÂN REES BA, Dip. Guidance & Couns, MIASC

I have explored many disciplines and paths of personal growth in order to develop my own awareness, and to enable me best to assist and inspire others. 

My mission is to help you as a women to build Deep Confidence to live authentically  in the world as who you really are and to make your unique contribution. 

WOMEN who have worked with me have taken control of their lives and felt more fulfilled, happier and gained clarity on their true purpose and how to implement it

DEEP CONFIDENCE  comes from within you, not from outside. It arises from and is a result of having the courage to live authentically as who you really are, in  alignment with your values, being true to yourself. Women’s energy is so needed in the world now, in order to bring balance. Free your feisty female power and fly!

I have explored Humanistic Psychology; trained in Gestalt and Psychosynthesis; trained with Anne Dickson – a pioneer in this field – to teach Assertion Training.I have a Degree in Anthropology; a Diploma in Guidance and Counselling; I trained as a Life Coach  with the Coaches Training Institute (CTI). So you’ll see I have a wide range of experiences to draw from when working with women to help them to develop Deep Confidence and move forward in their lives.
