Featured Coach | Shems Heartwell

Shems-LShems Heartwell

My passion is to support clients in living fully and feeling the abundance of energy that is all around and within them.
I assist people in:
*becoming energy generators rather than consumers.
*Coming into integrity and finding meaning and purpose.
*living guided by the heart and in resonance with life and the cycles of healthy living systems.
*cultivating and freeing the life force energy to generate what we want in our lives and to contribute to the whole.
*going deeper in relationships and learning from the challenges and experiences that arise.
*releasing negative patterns and unfelt feelings.
I offer individual and relationship coaching in person or over the phone, supporting individuals and couples to go deeper in all areas of their lives.
Rather than listening to another’s opinion about what is right for us, I suggest that we journey into our own center for our truth and watch it flower out.

Practiced Bodywork and Acupuncture, continually finding that true healing comes from our commitment to be present with what is happening in our lives.
