Is this you?
Are you feeling depressed, anxious, burnt out, disconnected or lonely?
Do you put yourself down, lack confidence, self-love or self-worth?
Do you struggle with putting your own needs first, speaking your truth, placing boundaries or people pleasing?
Do you find yourself feeling happy and content if everything is going well, but end up back in despair each time your circumstances change?
Have you tried therapy or counselling, to only get short term relief?
Are your relationships strained, do you constantly argue with loved ones? Do you wish you could communicate better, connect more and have more quality time together?
Do you wish you enjoyed life more, had a job that you were excited about, or be able to work less and have more time?
Do you spend hours scrolling on social media or binge watching Netflix? Do you long for that glass of wine every evening, constantly crave junk food, or do anything else that makes you feel better / distracts you?
Do you wonder if there is more to life or if THIS is it?
I SEE YOU,
Believe me when I say that I completely understand what you are feeling and experiencing...
I have been there too.
I had a challenging childhood, I was bullied at school, I suffered from anxiety and depression... and eventually ended up in a toxic relationship and separated twice from my husband Max. I struggled as a single mother and noticed how I was repeating the same cycles from my own childhood (despite being so determined to parent differently and not repeat my own experiences!). I struggled with people pleasing and setting boundaries, I felt I wasted time and money on a degree that landed me in one job I hated after another, and I lacked so much confidence, self-love and self-worth.
I tried years of counselling and therapy - and don't get me wrong, while they had their place and were helpful at the time - they only offered short term relief. I constantly found myself ending up back at the same place, experiencing the same feelings of hopelessness, hating myself and my life, and thinking nothing would ever change for me.
So how did I get out of it?
When I eventually hit rock bottom and felt suicidal, I realised I had 3 choices - 1) either I give up, 2) I continue as I am and mess up my son's life too, or 3) I finally get my act together and change MYSELF first. I went for the latter... and threw myself into the world of self-development and 'spirituality'. I took out a credit card and got myself a life coach! It was absolutely priceless, the best investment I ever made for myself and my family, and it completely changed my life forever.
I healed my past traumas and wounds, learned to love myself and know my worth, quit my job, made my dreams a reality, stopped people pleasing, and Max and I finally saved our marriage and built a healthy and thriving relationship with each other and our kids. To this day I continue to have breakthroughs and see the ripple effects that it has had on me, my family and my whole life. The impact was SO BIG that I knew I had to become a coach myself, to help others stuck in the same situation.
If I can achieve all of this, then I promise YOU can too!
How would you like to...
Get to the root of everything you are feeling and experiencing...
and change it ONCE AND FOR ALL?
Experience self-love, self-worth, confidence, freedom, happiness and love?
Reconnect to your true-self, learn to trust your instincts, place boundaries and stop people pleasing?
Create a life that you LOVE, on YOUR terms; making your dreams and goals a reality?
Have healthier, happier and thriving relationships?

The value of the holistic life coaching program with Şirin is priceless. Purely from my change in attitude and outlook; I don't believe a monetary value could quantify it! You can't even begin to imagine the changes, and the way that they ripple through every aspect of your life. Şirin is an incredible lady and she is so easy to talk to.
Within the first month of having weekly sessions I can notice a difference in myself. The opportunity to reflect on my past, understand my triggers and challenge my own narratives has been transformative. Having this time to focus on myself, my emotions and my pain has helped me have breakthroughs I could not even have foreseen!
Grateful for my amazing Holistic Life Coach, Şirin, looking after my mental health and her knowledge of women's bodies. I'd recommend her with my whole heart, she genuinely got me through my darkest time!
My name is Şirin Özgür Hewitt (pronounced Shirin).
I am a Holistic Life Coach, an unschooling mother and wife.
I highly value integrity, compassion, love and nature. I believe that the capitalist system we live in is at the root of all the problems that we are currently collectively experiencing - mental, physical, emotional, social and spiritual. I also believe that it is the root cause of all the trauma/wounds that has negatively impacted our previous generations, and is impacting us and our future generations.
We are social beings... designed to live communally, to have guidance, support and wisdom from our tribe and our elders (from a young age); to be connected to ourselves, to others and to nature; and to live in the present moment. But the system we live in, the lifestyles we lead and the way we are taught and conditioned are causing more and more disconnection from ourselves, others, nature and our innate way of living.
This is why chronic stress, anxiety, depression, other mental/physical health issues, feelings of shame, people pleasing and lack of self-love / self-worth are higher than ever. It is why more and more of us are feeling lost, empty, confused, broken and lacking purpose and deep and lasting relationships. This is also precisely why Max and I have adopted what some may consider a 'radical lifestyle'! Why we have said no to sending our kids to school, to working a 9-5 job (and for someone else), and why we adopt minimalism, ground living and much more!
I take a holistic approach because I want to set you up for success! I want to create long lasting changes and get to the ROOT of your problems, rather than merely trying to 'fix' your symptoms (which is sadly what the majority of the 'solutions' offered in our system do). I create a safe, compassionate and non-judgemental space, where you will feel loved, seen and heard. I give you the guidance, tools and a proven process to help you heal and become empowered to create change and take action.
Our 'personalities', labels and conditions are not set in stone... we do not have to accept them! I am here to show you that what is considered 'normal' is not necessarily the best or only way... and that we can do better to break the cycles for ourselves and future generations!
(an optional 'physical health' month can also be included)
I will help you unpack and understand your childhood/past traumas,
become aware of your wounds, triggers and social conditioning,
and begin your powerful healing journey.
I will show you how to rewire your brain...
and shift your mindset, language and limiting beliefs.
We will then take a deep dive into self-love work!
This is where you will really start reconnecting to your true-self;
getting clear on YOUR values,
setting YOUR boundaries, standards & goals,
and working on your relationships.
