Personal Consulting and Coaching


I am an average man, have a good job, a faithful supporting spouse, have a house and pay my taxes. I am fully mobile, have a good education and grew up in a family that was supportive. With these things, I have so much that others do not. I am thankful and grateful for them.

Why then do I have all of this anxiety and doubt? What secrets do I feel I keep? Why do I carry the thoughts that people will see through me and think that I am a fraud, not really as good of a person that I think I am.

I have kept these thoughts inside me for years, fearful to let them escape, fearful to articulate them.

Shaun has given me the ability to reconcile and understand these feelings. He has assisted me in working through my perceived problems and given me the ability to release the chains holding me down; my self-perception in society, societies paradigm as to what is important, and my relationships with my spouse, co-workers and others.

I am forever grateful for my sessions with Shaun and the insight that it has provided me. Shaun is articulate and thoughtful. He presents information and reflection to you that comes from a place of kindness, positivity, insight, and direction. He challenges you to go further in the understanding of yourself and your balance with the world.

Through Shaun’s help over the past year, I am able to stride farther, be more compassionate to others, be a better partner to my spouse, and understand that concerns I have are concerns that many others have as we go through life….they are important and can be managed effectively.
I have worked with Shaun on my personal and professional development off and on over the past two decades. No matter what I bring to him from the field or from my personal life, he helps me find a way to sort through what I need and coaches me through my decisions to make changes. Through setting some goals and a little work, I have been able to maximize my growth with Shaun’s coaching. Working with Shaun has felt like a process in self-discovery and growth that is positively guided and supported, even when it has seemed daunting. I have seen him as a map-holder, coach and guide. Shaun has an ease and comfort and that has allowed me to tackle some tough topics and issues. His immeasurable experience in professional development has helped me become more of the person I aim to be in all aspects of my life. He has helped me build skills I didn’t know I need. Shaun’s style of coaching and process are delivered with great care, respect, value and worth. He is truly the best personal coach and clinician I have encountered personally and professionally.
Shaun is empathic, smart, and his demeanor is genuine and approachable. He skillfully guided me to a better understanding of my personal choices and behaviors…both past and present. From start to finish, I ‘just knew’ I was in good hands. No doubt, I am living life with more awareness. Thank you, Shaun, for time well spent !
“Shaun Kieran is unique in that he has an incredible gift with language. He is articulate, well spoken, and intelligent in a way that is frankly unusual in today’s work world. It is easy to sit back and watch an employee wrestle with old patterns of behavior, struggle to change and grow, and then emerge from the process like a butterfly coming out of the chrysalis. I have seen this happen more than once, and am amazed at the skill and caring Shaun brings to each employee coaching situation. He is thoughtful in his comments, is able to absorb the gist of any consulting question, and he can reframe issues in a way that leaves staff thinking harder and more earnestly than they would alone about their daily business practices and professional situations.”
“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.”
“I have had the good fortune of participating in a [consultation] group under the engaging supervision of Shaun Kieran. His supportive leadership style fostered the opportunity for stimulating discussions by asking thought provoking questions and offering insightful perspectives. He exudes a pride in his profession, and nurtures others to see their own value… I would highly recommend Shaun’s guidance in any supervisory situation”
