I am an LSW & case manager at a mental health agency. In March 2006, I was a passenger when an accident took place that broke both my ankles. I desperately needed someone to talk to who could help me get through, what I felt, was the end of my life as I knew it. My first thought had been of Shaun, but I knew I could not travel to him. I contacted him anyway, hoping he might be able to come up with a solution. He told me he was now doing coaching, not therapy, which is done over the phone. He felt it might help me, said we could try and if it wasn’t helpful, we would stop. He was right. It is so hard to put into words what Shaun has done for me without telling how devastated I was, but I am going to try. My biggest fear was that I would never have my life back, professionally or personally. That I would never be me again. It wasn’t easy for Shaun, yet he helped me to see that the accident did not change who I was, nor did it take away my abilities. He did this with compassion, empathy, encouragement, common sense, intelligence, humor, & when needed, bluntness. He gave me hope when I had none of my own. It has been eight months since my accident and thanks to Shaun, I am back to work full time, with the same abilities I had before the accident. Shaun is still my coach, helping me to deal with a large number of changes that have taken place at work, and issues in my personal life.
Shaun is very versatile and is capable of helping with any problem that comes up, whether personal or professional, and I would recommend him to anyone who needs some help in dealing with life, whatever the circumstances.
