Our mission is to support and empower women and men to free themselves from the chains, the shame and the social conditioning dictated to us by the system that we live in. We aim to inspire people to question how we live, what we have been sold as 'normal', and to break the cycles...
in order to live happier, healthier and more mindful lives.
Through our Holistic Life Coaching, we help people reconnect to their true-selves, to nature and to an innate way of living. We believe in a holistic and personalised approach (as one size does not fit all); in order to promote the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual well-being of our clients.
Innate Living is a Community Interest Company (CIC),
founded and run by us, Şirin and Max Hewitt.
We believe that every human has the right to freedom, love, happiness and good health.
We are committed to supporting and empowering people to live the life that
they desire, deserve and love.
We strongly believe that the mind and body cannot be separated,
and that a holistic approach is needed in order to achieve complete well-being; rather than merely trying to 'fix' the symptoms (which come from a broken system, not broken people!)
We were therefore inspired to create a Holistic Life Coaching business, which combines both of our knowledge and experiences of mental and physical health.
We both highly value honesty, integrity and vulnerability.
We strive to always be transparent and humble with our clients.
We are extremely passionate about transforming our clients' lives
and creating a ripple effect for our world.
I am a Holistic Life Coach, a mindful Parenting Coach, an author, a social activist and an unschooling mother.
I was born in London, with Turkish
and Cypriot ethnicity. I currently live in Bristol, UK
with my husband and two sons.
I love all humans and I am passionate about supporting and empowering people all over the world.
I have a degree in Sociology. Prior to becoming a coach I had worked for several charities and organisations, offering various levels of support to refugees, asylum seekers, detainees, foreign national prisoners, students and social workers.
I have a Life Coaching Diploma and have completed several coaching and personal development courses with Dr Gabor Maté, Preston Smiles, Alison Armstrong and Suzy Ashworth (to name a few). I love learning and I am committed to always continuing my own journey of
I also write a blog and offer support to parents on my
Innate Parenting website.
I am a Holistic Life Coach, a Health and Fitness Coach and an unschooling father. I offer physical, mental and emotional support specifically to men, and I am currently in the process of becoming a registered Personal Trainer.
Prior to becoming a coach, I had worked in the UK healthcare sector (including the NHS) for 15 years. Whilst I highly value and appreciate our health service and western medicine for dealing with acute conditions, I became increasingly frustrated with the bureaucracy and lack of understanding and efforts to prevent and cure chronic illnesses (which are now flooding our society).
This has fuelled my desire to do something to address the root causes, rather than merely 'fix' the symptoms. I believe that this can only be done by looking at a person and their lifestyle as a whole. It is my mission to offer support to people and work with them towards a better quality of life.
I have completed coaching programs and courses with Dr Gabor Maté, Preston Smiles and Alison Armstrong; and I will be continuing my training with Gary Ward, Wim Hof and Chris Kresser.
