Treat your body well and live a life you value. 


Feel normal around food, confident in yourself and free up headspace so you can flourish in life. 


Imagine a future where...

  • You feel comfortable and happy in your¬†body,¬†free from the exhausting cycle of restricting and bingeing.
  • You freely enjoy food during social occasions¬†without¬†feeling guilty, out of control or excessively planning ahead.
  • You've fallen back in love with training because it's no longer just about how you look.
  • You¬†make spontaneous plans with friends without worrying about going off track.
  • You feel present and connected with loved ones because your mind is no longer consumed with counting calories or worrying about steps.
  • You can wear the clothes you love and go to the beach without a second thought.


But Currently You're Struggling With...

Your relationship with food, emotional and binge eating, and never truly feeling at peace in your own body.

Your self worth is tied to the scale and your fear of weight gain controls way too much of your life.

The pressure to adhere to a perfect health and fitness routine leads to overthinking and robs you of freedom.

When eating out with friends you break down every bite into macros, unable to fully enjoy the experience.

You're frustrated that nothing seems to have worked so far. You're nervous that this is just the way you are, but you long to feel free and like yourself again.

Good news! You are the exact person EMPOWER Coaching was designed for.

Here's The Problem

You've tried numerous approaches in the past, from calorie and macro tracking to over-exercising and avoiding your favourite foods. But these approaches haven’t brought you lasting results or addressed the root causes of your struggles. They may have provided temporary fixes or short-term satisfaction, but deep down, you know they were missing something crucial. 

What was missing? Self-awareness and the methods to build inner confidence. Delving into the core issues that are holding you back, so you can achieving an empowering relationship with food and confidence in yourself. Empowering yourself with the tools to understand your body, your emotions, and your unique needs. Developing respect for your body and appreciation of who you are beyond just how you look. Instead, they focused on external measurements and rigid rules, leaving you feeling trapped and insecure.

It's time to let go of the surface level solutions and strive for enduring health and confidence.

Stop going round in circles and putting yourself down. Allow an experienced coach into your corner to support you.

Shannon helped me dig deeper into my story behind food, rather than staying surface level and just ticking some macro boxes.

I have tried many "nutrition" coaches who just told me what to do, what macros to hit or what to eat. It created a relationship of "need" where I didn't feel like I learned anything about myself and was unable to participate in life without measuring my food. I felt really disconnected from my actual hunger or preferences, and instead would cycle through not eating (to try manage my weight) and binge eating on the weekends / drinking more than I felt comfortable with. Working with Shannon was completely different. I learned to see how eating well was a way of taking care of myself and my body, rather than me needing to 'earn' that. I am very grateful for you. Your lessons stay with me and have helped me be a better human & coach. Thank you!

EMPOWER Coaching is for you if...

Like Barbara, you fear weight gain

and are stuck in a rigid routine that must be followed perfectly, or else you feel anxious. You are paying a lot of attention to how your body looks and comparing yourself to others.

You long to be more confident and flexible so you can stop missing out and be present when you are with your friends and family.

Like Katie, your emotions take over

and you feel out of touch with your hunger and fullness cues. You're caught in a cycle of¬†‚ÄúI‚Äôll be good tomorrow‚ÄĚ and eating more than what feels good to you.

You long to have a relaxed relationship with food so you can showing up as your best self in all areas of your life.

 Here's how we do it:

Coaching Calls

This experience has been completely different from any other coaching I’ve tried in the past, and infinitely more valuable.

The questions Shannon asked, how she asked them, and resources she provided, made me explore my mind in a different way. It was about getting to the root of what I was struggling with, not just setting a plan and saying I just don’t want it enough when I slip up. I felt the care and compassion throughout the whole experience.

The Five Step Empower Process

This process has created so much freedom in my life.

I reached out to address my relationship with food, something that felt very overwhelming and unachievable. Shannon was able to guide me through the process of identifying and reframing unhelpful thought patterns contributing to my relationship with food and show the alternate outcomes to situations by being curious and kind to myself. It was honestly a life changing experience, one I would say everyone would benefit greatly from.

Before coaching with Shannon, I was really struggling to stop the diet/emotional eating cycle. It felt like a roundabout with no exit route. I was bonding so much "self worth" to my weight & size & it was massively impacting my life. Working with Shannon gave me the confidence to let go of things I tied my worth to. She helped me to become more compassionate, so that I could do the hard things & take time for me. I have changed my mindset entirely, meaning I focus on ways to soothe myself & give back to myself. I get more stuff done, I feel more mindful, I am feeling so much better in my own skin. I have more interesting conversations, because I have more time to read. I actually feel a little bit tearful writing this, but I don't weigh, track myself, my steps, my calories & goodness knows what else daily. I have time & that's precious. 

Thank you for enabling me to understand that there is light at the end of a tunnel. It's wonderful that after 16+ years of being ruled by these feelings of self doubt, the need to be slimmer, disordered eating and a painful and overruling exercise addiction... I can look at a feelings wheel and feel hopeful and confident, and that feels wonderful.

I've used a few coaches and it was an investment I was scared to make, but Shannon is so different - in a very good way!


Meet Your Coach

Hi! I'm Shannon

Law school grad turned body image informed Registered Nutritionist, Certified Compassionate Mind Trainer and Rational Emotive Coach.

I am passionate about many things and have an exuberance for life (hence travelling the world for 5+ years). My training and nutrition has always been there to support these areas of my life, not take away from them. I got into this industry because I wanted to help people flourish and life rich and full lives too.

I soon became very interested in the best ways to go about this. It became apparent that there's a lot more to health than just the physical aspect. There's also a lot more to eating well than simply knowing what to do. Most of all, there's more to confidence than just looking the part (which is fleeting anyway). 

I created Empower Coaching to help clients break through their barriers to achieve Flourishing Health and develop inner confidence, so they can focus on what matters in life.

Wondering whether EMPOWER Coaching

is right for you?

This probably isn't the right fit for you if:

  • You are willing to sacrifice your health and wellbeing to lose a few pounds
  • You are not in a position to make an ongoing financial investment, in which case the¬†Build Body Confidence Course¬†may be a better fit
  • You are struggling with an eating disorder and you‚Äôre not in treatment

If it's fear, uncertainty and self-doubt that is holding you back... that's actually not a problem. These feelings are all a normal part of the change process. We can chat through any of these concerns in a free call (with no obligation to sign up), which you can book in once your application has been reviewed.


Please contact us to discuss whether or not Empower Coaching could be a good fit for you. If you are in treatment with a therapist or other professional, we can make it a team discussion! Shannon is always happy to collaborate with your support team.
