You think you should be able to do certain things -like calmly chatting with strangers; confidently sharing your opinions in a group; and perfectly presenting to an audience- just because other people seem to manage with ease.
But it's not easy. It can feel like you’re the only person struggling.
We’re Hayley, Stacie & Ellie. Together, we help quieter people like you to feel more calm and confident so you can speak up when you need to, join the social groups you want to, make new friends and go on dates without the panic, get the grades that you deserve, and… actually enjoy talking with people!
We know your pain, because we were the ones who would panic whenever someone would talk to us, too. We know what it’s like to feel unable to ask for the help you need, and pretend to be okay. We've felt the panic that the mere mention of the words ‘presentation’ and ‘interview’ can trigger.
We were so embarrassed about how ‘flawed’ we were, we just wanted to hide ourselves away. So we did everything we could to avoid speaking in front of people and being the centre of attention.
It’s taken us over a decade of research, counselling, coaching, courses and getting uncomfortable in the name of growth, to collect enough puzzle pieces to understand what was going on for us and see how we can make changes to show up how we want to in life - as who we really are underneath all that anxiety!
We know it’s so hard because no one really talks about this (and seriously, who wants to spend a decade trying to figure it all out for themselves?). That's why we are starting conversations now so we can all share everything that we are all learning about this as we walk the path from social anxiety to quiet confidence, because you shouldn’t have to feel alone, broken and ashamed the way that we did for so long.
Share stories, support & encouragement with people on the same path as you.
