“As a solo entrepreneur, I often find myself in need of a thinking partner – someone who is a sounding board for my ideas, thoughts and challenges and to help me work through them. Talking to Shereen helped meet that essential need. She helped me to validate my ideas, better understand why I was moving in a certain direction, how to move beyond and that and most of all that I wasn’t alone in the work. ”

“Working in Recruitment where burnout rates are high, it was important to me that I cultivated a working environment which actively supported my team’s wellbeing. Shereen has been instrumental in helping me to put together a wellbeing program which covers mental health, counseling, resilience, assertive behaviours, nutrition, exercise and much more. These are delivered in monthly workshops and I then implement them into our daily actions. I can truly say these workshops have totally changed our behaviours and my business for the better. My team are motivated, valued and engaged, you couldn’t ask for a better ROI. Shereen has also provided me with executive coaching which gave me real clarity on some actions I needed to take which before I didn’t realise I needed. This focus has made my professional growth accelerate to a whole new level. I am a happier, grounded and wealthier person today because of it. Shereen has a calm but assertive approach to her work. You can tell that she really cares about you and your success. Shereen I can’t thank you enough for the impact you have had on my life. As a business owner at times, it can be a lonely place, I don’t feel like this anymore and this is because of you.”

“Through a recommendation from a fellow entrepreneur, we start working with Shereen on our strategic / business plan for 2019-20 as we needed a different business approach as well as guidance we can move forward and increase the visibility plus income for our company WEBOX. It was our first time working with a business coach and were pretty ‘picky’ to find the best match for us. From the introduction call to the actual working session, Shereen completely understood our services and what we try to achieve on this fast-changing market. Shereen delivers her session with a great blend of strategic and mindfulness practices, which gives this a diverse and more value to her course/service. We have been almost 3 months in and we do see a great improvement in achieving our business goals, client attraction and with us as owners, feeling more settled and certain in our work and life balance. I can highly recommend working with Shereen Hoban.”
— Els Kolster — Co-Founder WEBOX
“I first came to Shereen to help me turn my hobby business from passion to profit. In my previous business I had partners and now working on my own I missed and struggled not having that person to sound off ideas with, someone to keep me accountable and for emotional support when things get tough. Shereen fills these roles for me and I still own 100% of my company. In less than 6 months we have completed changed the focus of my business, and not only turning it into a legit business but also ensuing my business supports my personal goals. One of the reasons I started my own business is I wanted that freedom we all do from being our own boss but rarely get as owing your own business can soon have you working twice as hard and long as you would in an employed job. Shereen helped challenge why I did things and helped me make decisions based on what would not only be good for my business but make me happiest. This is what has been great about working with Shereen she takes a holistic and all round approach to make sure you are doing well at life not just business. I have achieved a lot in a short space of time and would recommend Shereen without hesitation for both business and personal life coaching.”

“Shereen was recommended to me when I was in a particularly sticky situation with my new business. I could barely keep my head above water – I felt like I didn’t have a clue what I was doing, my diary was all over the place and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t keep it organised. I kept forgetting to reply to clients and was just forgetful in general! I didn’t have a business partner to share my ideas, problems or goals with, or the tools to get me through this confusing time.
Working with Shereen was the best decision I could have made. She has helped me get organised, focused and motivated, pushing me forward and guiding me through the more difficult aspects, helping me to take control of my business. As well as creating a brilliant weekly plan and breaking down complicated tasks into manageable chunks, I was also able to discuss the emotional side of things with her.
I’m now able to see how far I’ve come in such a short space of time and I feel super proud! Shereen is friendly, kind and caring and I instantly felt secure with her and comfortable to tell her everything. I would 100% recommend her services – she will be able to help you put some great systems in place and push you to that next exciting step. Thank you so much Shereen for all you have done!”

“I am registered nutritional therapist and clinical hypnotherapist, and Director or Urban Wellness, working with both private and corporate clients to help them improve their health, mentally and physically.
About 2.5 years ago, I finally took the leap from a fun but somewhat exhausting 20+ year career in media to follow my passion of running Urban Wellness full-time. I knew it was what I wanted to do, and that I would succeed, but whilst my passion and enthusiasm encouraged me to make the leap, I left with no business plan in place other than a “I know I can do this” self belief! Whilst I still firmly believe this, one of the key elements I missed was that ‘team support’ to run ideas or problems by, and naturally a strategic direction to help me focus on driving my business and growing it further, particularly as I am a one-man band and there is a finite number of hours in the week. As I said to Shereen when we first spoke, I didn’t leave media to work a six day week!
I have been working with Shereen for several months now and the biggest change so far for me has been that Shereen is my own personal cheerleader! She has really helped me focus my attention on the profitable areas of my business, how to better manage my time and energy, but I also have a three-year plan in place to reach the bigger goals that I want for my business.
I have already recommended friends to work with Shereen as her experience, knowledge and ability to really understand what YOU need in order to grow your business is invaluable. If you are starting your own business, it can be a tough and somewhat lonely place sometimes and we all need a Shereen in our back pocket to cheer us on and support us to thrive.”
— Nutritional Therapist & Clinical Hypnotherapist — Urban Wellness
“Shereen has been a fantastic support to me as a business and personal coach over the last year. She has an engaging and creative approach, using Gestalt to bring real depth to our sessions. My coaching journey with Shereen has led me to find new and valuable insights about myself and make business and life decisions that feel right for me. I would highly recommend her to anyone, who is looking to invest in themselves through coaching. ”
— Head of Talent & Culture — Media Agency
“Having run my own business for 15 years my work/life balance was considerably out of whack, I was stressed and often overwhelmed meaning that my personal life was non existent and running my business was running me.
Meeting with Shereen allowed me to work through ideas of ways that I could change this balance, envisioning what getting the right support for my business would look like and how to get there. We also worked on prioritising a personal life and getting me on the road to meeting new people and giving me confidence in the scary world of dating.
I am pleased to say that I now have an excellent general manger and have also met the most wonderful partner. I have Shereen to thank for helping me achieve all this and am looking forward to all the adventures to come as my business grows and my relationships develop.
If you are ever thinking about a life coach I would recommend Shereen in a heartbeat. ”
— Director and Founder — Fashion Label
“Shereen has a very engaging and empathetic coaching style and gives you the tools to find solutions and make real changes for yourself. With a fresh perspective on a situation and creative frameworks to work through how to gain better results, coaching with Shereen has helped me to take on new work challenges with confidence and make them a success. ”
— Client Services Director — Digital PR Agency
“Shereen has a great way of making a person feel at ease and heard. She brings with her vast knowledge of the corporate world which benefits corporate and small business clients. She is warm, creative and gives a lot to her clients. Be prepared to be challenged! ”
— Business Startup Mentor & Psychotherapist
“My time working with Shereen had been invaluable to moving me on from a very troubled place to a completely new and positive situation in a remarkably short time. With Shereen’s help I was able to make huge strides towards where I was aiming to get to and feel like a very different person. The coaching has also given me the tools to hopefully continue in a positive way and a feeling of strength and confidence that I can do so. It’s really been a life changing experience!”
— Head of Insight — Government
“I first met Shereen during a very high pressured period in my career. Having moved to a senior position within a new company I was struggling with a new structure and felt disconnected with the vision. I was really lacking perspective about what I wanted out of the job and how I could add most value to the company. Over a few sessions I worked with Shereen to get right to the fundamentals of who I was as a professional person, and how to navigate my situation to my (and my company’s) advantage. I really enjoyed the process and have come out the other side with real clarity, and some very useful tools for dealing with my day to day. Would certainly recommend. ”
— Managing Director — Digital Fashion Publication
“Shereen is an incredible personal coach. She worked with me personally, as well as running a programme for the leadership team I’m on that included five sessions for five managers. She is really thoughtful and directed in her approach. I especially like the way I walked out of every session with a concrete list of action items I could either work on or think about. She was able to relate to the challenges I presented without having a deep understanding of the industry I’m involved in. I learned a lot about myself and I use the skills she taught me on a daily basis. I would recommend her to anyone looking to make concrete changes at work.”
— Senior Platform Lead — EMEA at Oath
“Shereen is a joy to work with; she is very knowledgeable, caring and reliable. Shereen uses her extensive knowledge and expertise to ensure every session addresses the specific skills and tools you need to achieve your goals.”
— Health and Wellness Communications Consultant
“Shereen is a fantastic coach and has been a really valuable support to me.
Her friendly and flexible style suited me well, putting me at ease, so we could discuss a broad range of areas over our time together.
I also found her background and understanding of fast-paced work environments (like my own) very helpful, as she was able to build on some of her own experiences, and relate to me both personally and professionally, offering a great balance.”
— Executive Business Director — OMD UK
“Shereen has a fantastic coaching style, that rare blend of sharp insight and robust emotional intelligence.
Shereen is constructively challenging with a real depth of corporate experience to draw from.
Our coaching time has proven an invaluable asset to help facilitate both personal progress and professional change.”
— Vice President — Universal Pictures
“I took coaching sessions with Shereen last year in 2017 and it has been an amazing experience. She came to our company with a corporate benefit program in which we could take group and individual coaching sessions. Shereen helped me throughout those sessions to change my bad habits, lower my stress levels and improve my overall well-being. She is a professional as well as kind soul that guides her clients towards better life and improvement of themselves. I would recommend Shereen for both group and individual coaching sessions.”

“Shereen was a delight to work wth. She manages to command the room with her calm composure and deep knowledge of the task in hand. I have no doubt that we can all learn from Sheeren.”

“I’m so grateful to have found Shereen. Working with her has been an absolutely wonderful experience. Initially I was overwhelmed and felt unable to take control of my life and career but she gave me tools to be empowered and armoured for my best life. Shereen’s methods are thoughtful, nurturing, engaging and practical. Her approach helped me redefine and rebuild myself even beyond the professional scope. After only a few months of coaching I’m happily settled in the career path of my dreams and working towards other life goals. I’ll continue to work with Shereen and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking life or career coaching.”
— Event Manager — Finance
“Shereen has recently provided one to one coaching for me & I’ve found this process invaluable.
Sessions were conducted via Skype & although we didn’t meet in person, Shereen instantly made me feel comfortable which helped me discuss challenges that I was experiencing.
I particularly like the fact that Shereen not only focuses on professional wellbeing but also personal wellbeing & in each session, she explored what my goals were, offered advice on how to approach certain situations & really helped me to visualise what my ideal solution would be. I have received coaching in the past and I feel the best way to way to approach the process is if you are completely open & honest & Shereens approach generates this kind of dialogue. I’ve really enjoyed working with Shereen & hope our paths cross again in the future.”
— Account Director — Catalina Marketing
“Over the past several years, I went through several immense challenges, notably professional and personal. Even though I felt strong while tackling those issues at the time, I came to the realization that I ended up fatigued physically and emotionally. I couldn’t find the motivation to rebuild my life and to put it simply, I felt lost. Then I met Shereen.
After thorough discussions and numerous soul-searching exercises, Shereen was able to put in place a roadmap on how to be “back on track.” We worked on many different aspects of my road to recovery, which included: boosting productivity, inspiring creativity, overcoming past traumas, handling and avoiding resentful situations, and working towards professional and personal goals.
I felt as though, for the first time in years, someone listened to me without judgement. I could be myself. There was no template with Shereen’s work; on everything we collaborated, it felt personal and tailor-made to my own unique situation. This was very refreshing! This was a team-effort and Shereen was an amazing member of this team.
As of now, I’ve been able to tackle the trauma of the past, organize myself in a way that suits my lifestyle better and am finally able to move forward with confidence and excitement for the future. Ultimately, I now realize, I’m on track on the most important journey of all: happiness; something I will be eternally grateful for. I can only highly recommend Shereen! ”

“My business has grown from strength to strength all with Shereen’s support and expertise.”
“From the day I virtually met Shereen, I instantly knew she was the business coach I needed! I would highly recommend Shereen to any business starting up or any entrepreneur. Our sessions are full of positivity and motivation. Shereen keeps me on track to achieve and exceed my personal and business goals. Shereen is a warm, trustworthy, lovely, professional coach – she has given me the confidence and knowledge to achieve anything and everything. If you want to level up and grow your business – all I am saying is, you need Shereen in your life (and business)!!”
— Lauren Martin — Founder of Eliter — VA & Social Media Agency
“I highly recommend her services to anyone wanting to level up with a balanced approach.”
”As a new entrepreneur bringing my therapy and mindset coaching practice online, I knew I wanted someone who would provide me with not only the business expertise but also the mindfulness practice that I know to be so beneficial. In many ways I followed my gut intuition and just sensed that Shereen’s energy was going to be a match, and it was. She has been exactly what I’ve needed to help me balance strategic business planning with self-care and pacing.”
— Katy Bandy — The Mindful Therapist
“I feel motivated, in control and excited – both personally and professionally.”
“Before I found Shereen I knew what I wanted for my business but I had no idea how or when I would get there. In the short time we have been working together I really feel as if I am a new person and my business is taking some serious shape. Goals that we set together in the first week, that seemed slightly unrealistic at the time, have been and gone and are now superseded by even bigger dreams that I could have never imagined before. Shereen gives me the confidence to 100% be myself and to step into my light as I share my vision and expertise with the world. Some days I really have to pinch myself when I think about how far I have come in just a few short months. I highly recommend Shereen for her holistic style of business coaching and her enthusiasm, authenticity and genuine passion for entrepreneurs and their journey.”
— Milly Poppins — Motherhood Journey Coach
“With Shereen’s support, I was able to achieve my 6-month business goals in 3 months.”
“Her gentle manner combined with a methodical approach to business growth gave me the confidence to explore strategies previously deemed way outside of my comfort zone. Our regular sessions gave my progress structure and held me accountable to my goals (whether they were to race forward or rest up); and it was invaluable being able to pepper Shereen with questions in between sessions. Her feedback was always thought-provoking and helped me maintain momentum in the moments I most needed it. I highly value Shereen’s generosity and authenticity. She shared her knowledge, experience and time without reserve; and always honouring my role as the expert on myself. I would highly recommend Shereen as a coach for anyone wanting to achieve their full potential in business and life — and I like to think I know a little about this being a business and career coach myself!”
