"... After working with Dr. Shawn Haywood, my business is has grown by many tens of thousands...

Shawn has a completely transformed my love life, emotional life, love life and business life!! I now have the confidence to tackle any challenge. And the ability to speak my mind, say no, and set iron clad boundaries. Shawn's ability to create realistic and approachable strategies to changing your life, your relationships and your business are unlike anything I've ever encountered. She has incredible energy and passion for what she does and for the people she works with. Hire her. It’s the best decision I made, and it will be yours too!" -

- Monica Shah, Founder of  Revenue Breakthrough, Business Coach

 

"Shawn is simply brilliant.  Within 5 minutes of being on the call, my husband said, "Man she knows her stuff, glad we are here!”.  We learned how to come together behind a unified vision and to follow something better in our relationship then, “he’s right/she’s right”.  Shawn’s work is nothing short of a necessity for all couples.  I know that I’m trying to get every couple I know into her classes.  This material should be mandatory.  It’s way better than couples therapy or retreats because it goes under the surface into principles that really work."

"Loren and I have been together for 11 years, we've changed A LOT over time. We knew we were falling into unhealthy patterns. But didn't know what to do about it for many years. We hoped there was a better way, a way with less friction and more happiness, but we couldn't find it on our own. 

 

Transformation is a BIG word. But it is the best description for the couples retreat with Shawn. I can honestly say that we have never grown so much, and in just two days.  Our marriage has taken a major quantum leap forward.  After the retreat, the positive transformation has continued in ways we hadn't dared hope.

 

In the month following the retreat, we had 5 of the best-ever days together. Just ordinary days by most standard, but so amazing, loving and peaceful. We are feeling SO in love and positive for the future.  The tools Shawn taught us keep propelling us forward and keep us deeply connected to each other. And now, several months later, everything continues to improve at a beautiful, steady pace. 

 

Shawn gave us the best present anyone could ever ask for - a stronger relationship with the person I've chosen as my partner for this crazy roller coaster called life".​

-- Dr. Kate Mihevc Edwards PT, DPT, OCS, Owner of Precision Performance Atlanta

4 years ago my wife was diagnosed with a genetic heart condition that forced her to give up running, the thing she absolutely loved. It was a defining moment for our marriage. During this time, we both worked, which forced us to juggle schedules between work and being good parents to our son- and this sudden change in circumstance showed us we needed help!

 

Shawn was instrumental in opening our minds to new possibilities at a time when all of our current possibilities were being torn down. For Kate this meant opening up a new PT practice. For myself, it meant finding a deeper connection with who I am and the work that I wanted to do everyday. In couples coaching sessions, Shawn offered great feedback to help Kate and I solve challenges, and improve our relationship. In my career Shawn enabled me to get more comfortable honoring myself, setting boundaries between work and family, and relentlessly pursuing a better self. Kate has gone on to build a thriving PT business and write 2 books! I'm grateful to Shawn for her frank feedback, approaches to self-realization, and continued enthusiasm in our coaching sessions.

"Shawn has been a invaluable resource over the course of our relationship. Her insight has given me a grounded, loving perspective that has been crucial in my efforts to be both the person and partner I want to be. With her help we are learning to balance self-care, independence and partnership, while creating the healthy, joyful relationship we desire."

- Jerry Hart & Tracy Mitzer

"My husband and I have been married for 13 years. We both had been feeling like we were in a slump in our relationship. We were bickering about minor things and resentment had built up over the years. Typical conflicts – disagreements about parenting, housekeeping, etc. What we agreed on was that we both still loved each other and we deserved, and had the potential for, a healthier and more loving day to day relationship. 

 

I had worked with Shawn for starting a consulting business and had a great outcome from her professional coaching – I was able to get my business going and have fun doing it (whereas I was making very little progress on my own and it was a painful process).

 

I suggested to my husband that we do a couples retreat with Shawn and he agreed. I’m sure he was reluctant; he’d never done any type of counseling or coaching before and I think the unknown was a bit intimidating. 

 

Shawn banished any of his concerns immediately. She’s warm and down to earth, and she made each of us feel heard and supported. Very quickly she was able to pin point some of the triggers for our conflicts and a lot of inaccurate stories we had developed about each other that were causing a lot of our conflicts. 

 

She helped us develop new skills and processes that we have been able to put into practice (easily) to avoid conflict and have more fun together.  It’s amazing how much more love we feel for each other without those distracting arguments! 

 

A bonus outcome from our work with Shawn is that she helped us develop plans and processes for making our whole family run better and for teaching our kids skills to improve their relationships and emotional health. 

 

This was a life changing experience and we are so grateful!!!! Thank you, Shawn!"

- Marianne Carlina, Fine Artist, Painter & Hair Styling Maven

"I started this process with Shawn with a little trepidation. I had never worked with a Life Coach before and wasn't sure what to expect. I very quickly came to find that Shawn is one of the kindest, warmest, most intuitive women I have ever had the pleasure of getting to know and work with. She has made this process of getting in touch with what I truly want, with complete authenticity and openness, an absolute pleasure. She helps me to focus and outline clear guidelines, never with judgement, always with an open heart and mind. I am loving every emotional moment of this life changing process and I can honestly say she is making my realizations much clearer and easier than I ever thought they could be. Not that it's easy, it's work. But isn't anything worth having? It just makes it pleasurable and joyful to go through it with someone so smart,  generous and kind. 

- Gretchen Fuller, President at Warner Fuller Consulting, LL

"Dr. Shawn has been a Mentor for several years now at a distance. Meaning, although we do not see or talk to each other every week, month or even every year. I can always reach out to her and seek advice on how to move forward in difficult or challenging obstacles in my business. She is skilled at asking those probing questions that force you to focus on the root of any situation or opportunities and guides you in determining solutions. She has a way of being a true valued partner in your business and its success. I not only consider her a Business Advisor but a true Business Partner."

-- Monica Shah, Founder of  Revenue Breakthrough, Business Coach

"Working with Shawn has been an eye-opening experience.  Prior to working with her, I felt anxious, and had a hard time committing to ideas, both personally and professionally.  She has helped me become aware and tune into my inner workings. And to understand the impact all the chatter of my ego was having on me, my relationships and overall life.  Especially those pesky limiting belief systems that I was holding onto so tightly. 

 

I've now noticed i'm more open to the Universe and possibility.  I allow myself to let go of belief systems that do not benefit me or create the outcomes I want to fulfill.  Yes! It is a unique experience that invites greater consciousness of self, relationships and how we show up in life.  I can't begin to explain how working with Shawn has shaped my life, both personally and professionally."
