Tired of feeling stressed, anxious and negative?

And finally ready to start shifting 
and stepping into your power?!

I hear ya girl!

I've been there.

Having a strong family history of anxiety, depression and addictive behaviours, I began struggling with my mood and negative mind states when I was 14 years old.

As it continued into my 20's, I truly hated how depression, anxiety and negativity were affecting my life.

I tell ya... at my lowest...frequent crying, days in bed, constant negative thinking and anxiety while even talking to others was not the life for me.

I found I was seeking out happiness and fulfillment through things I knew weren't truly serving me - men, relationships, food, drinking, distractions.

And I also knew that low self-esteem, limiting beliefs and self-doubts were keeping me from reaching my true desires and goals.

I decided I needed to take more self-responsibility for my mental and emotional well-being...

and I set out on a mission to learn how I could better work with my mind and emotions and take more control of the direction of my life.

10 years later, through my own journey of finding and practicing different healing strategies and through dedicated, committed practice,

I have learned to work with depression, anxiety and challenging emotions in an effective, enlightening AND rewarding way.  

Having found strategies that immensely helped myself, I became a mental health nurse, meditation teacher and women's coach, 

and became super passionate about helping other women navigate their own mental, emotional and stressful life challenges.

I've learned that these things DO NOT have to prevent you from living a life you TRULY desire. 

If you learn specific skills and practices, you can better work through challenges and over time, completely transform your inner and outer worlds.

I did it...and so can you!

What's also been awesome is that not only did these practices get me out of a life dictated by anxiety, depression and negativity...

as I continue to apply these skills, they now help me thrive and reach my goals in the area of entrepreneurship, leadership and serving others.

The magic of this knowledge just keeps on giving!

My online group coaching program, Radiant Mind Academy, includes all the teachings, wisdom and healing practices that got me out of the loops of depression and anxiety and into a life of greater inner peace, love, passion, success and fulfillment. 

With our work together, you'll learn lifelong tools to more effectively work with thoughts, emotions and life's challenges and to heal and shift into living as your best self!

On these calls, I offer my feedback and suggestions on how to put the material to practice and we fill out/complete some of the homework together!

No, feel free to drop in for 20-30 minutes to have your questions answered or stay longer to more thoroughly apply the skills, do some exercises and chat about the material.

No worries - all calls will be re-posted in the Facebook group so can watch when you have time. There's also coaching videos of all the material already on the program page.

More Client Love

I have suffered from depression and anxiety for my entire adult life and things took a turn for the worse a few years ago. Since then I had been seeing various doctors and psychiatrists and been placed on medication, but I never felt truly comfortable in a session until I began the program with Shawna. She made me feel comfortable and helped me to open up in ways I hadn't really been able to in previous sessions. Her background in CBT and mindfulness/meditation techniques allowed her to zero in on many of the thought patterns that combined to cause me so much trouble in my everyday life. With Shawna's help, I have a clear life goal in my sights and am currently taking steps to achieve it, while keeping in mind all that I learned from my time in Be Free. Shawna is a lovely person and I feel very lucky to have been able to work with her to help get myself back on track. Thanks so much, Shawna! 
Kendra, (age 29)
“I approached Be Free for private coaching because I was struggling with anxiety, worry and depression. Be Free helped me open up to the fact that ultimately, it was up to me and I needed to decide what it was that I wanted out of my life. The self-reflection that I did allowed me to realize my strengths and to work hard to improve and overcome my weaknesses. Be Free helped me gain the tools to live a more positive life. Be Free helped me realize there is a different way of life. A healthy way.”
Hannah, (age 36)
“I started seeing Shawna for issues related to anxiety / depression and general life issues after attempting therapy with many, many therapists, counsellors, social workers, physicians and specialists for over twenty years. I found her online and liked what I saw, a mixture of traditional CBT and practices involving more eastern philosophies such as mindfulness, meditation etc. Shawna has been instrumental in using these techniques to address my long standing issues. I have done CBT many times in the past but really never understood the concept. With her approach, I have found it so easy to understand and it has been invaluableto address everyday life issues. In terms of mindfulness and meditation, I have also been amazed at how intuitive Shawna is, always knowing when I need to be brought back to the present. I use meditation daily on Shawna’s advice which has given me incredible insight and peace. I can’t express how grateful and lucky I am to have found Ms. Thibodeau and fully intend to keep her on as a permanent member of my “life success” team.”
Seana, (age 42)
“I absolutely adored my time in private counseling with Shawna. I had initially approached her as a result of many personal issues and she was quick to make me feel at ease and completely comfortable with her. Through the sessions I was able to build on tools which helped me connect with myself on a deeper level and began to realize the root of my negative thinking and feelings. Discovering these enabled us to begin working on ways to challenge the anxiety, stress, irritability and worrying I had gotten so accustomed to. The personal binder and informational documents Shawna has created provide you with a wealth of information with helpful activities, further education suggestions and thoughtful lessons. I feel especially in today's age of instant gratification, materialism and the stigma on mental health what Shawna is offering is becoming increasingly important. She provided me with realistic solutions to the problems I was facing and as a result I am able to feel healthier, more mindful and happy!”
Jennifer, (age 24)
“I started seeing Shawna regarding my lack of self love, relationship issues and over all lack of passion for life. Since completing our sessions together, I have felt more motivated and more adventurous. It is obvious that Be Free has given me the proper skills to live a healthier and more meaningful life.”
Erin, (age 20)
“Private counselling with Shawna has been a very positive, eye opening, and educational experience. Her content has taught me the concepts of cognitive distortions and core beliefs, and how mine and those of others can come into play each and every day. I am now more mindful of these and know how to deal with them more effectively. Shawna has emphasized the importance of, and how to self-reflect to stay on a path that is honest to me. She is there for guidance, but strongly attempts not to tell you what to do. Shawna has helped me face and breakdown large goals into smaller tasks. I have found her easy to relate to and accommodating. It has done wonders for me to have a neutral party to share adversities and dreams with and seek advice and fresh perspectives from. She has given me tangible tools to utilize in the present and into the future. If you are feeling stuck or lost, I strongly recommend reaching out to her. It is an investment in your future that you will not regret!”
Sadie, (age 25)
