Hi, I'm Vicky Shilling

nice to meet you

I’m completely obsessed with helping you just start now when it comes to growing your wellness business.

I’ve always been someone who loves to get things done. 

When I was a teenager I didn’t just play an instrument: I got appointed as a social rep and organised events, and planned the first ever summer tour for my uni orchestra by plane.
 
When I worked in the classical music industry for over a decade I got a reputation which I didn’t realise was so unusual: “if you ask Vicky to do something, it actually gets done.”
 
Working with my clients now, I get the same feedback time and time again: “working with you I’ve got more done in the last few weeks than I did on my own for years.”

In 2016, fed up with recurring bouts of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) I resolved to change my diet and lifestyle to try and address my symptoms.
 
There was plenty of action needed: new recipes to try, books and blogs to read, events to attend where I could discover more.
 

From taking those actions things grew. Small at first, the blog I founded went on to win awards and turned into a community of real-life friends. I founded a series of wellness retreats for women with a Nutritional Therapist friend I’d met.
 
Those actions led me to a networking event where I learned about coaching and then to train to be a coach myself. With my newfound skills I turned to my blog audience and asked who would like coaching with me. And so it has grown from there.

How do I get stuff done?

Through taking action.

What lights me up?

Being someone who is able to just start now takes two things:

1

2

Solid, strategic, know-how and business savvy

A mindset that supports big brave action to get results

And let’s be honest: neither of these things comes naturally or easily to any of us. No one is born with them. I know I certainly wasn’t. 

I remember what felt like the physical effort of having to learn how to do everything required to have my own business from building a website to getting comfortable with sales. I had to drag my mind, which was kicking and screaming and desperate to stay in its comfort zone, with me on the ride. I have been where you are.

But both these ingredients need to be cultivated in order to become a successful business owner. And that is what I love to help you do.

My secret sauce...

My magic...

Is blending the practical strategy with the thriving mindset to get the outcomes you desire. I teach you all the things I’ve discovered are business vitals in easy-to-understand accessible chunks and hold up the mirror to where your mind is sabotaging you from taking action and implementing what you’ve learned.

Because what I noticed through my mentoring was that telling my clients what to do and giving them the practical steps alone, wasn’t enough to get results.

Is in being able to break down and make achievable the practical and strategic parts of business building. And help you notice and re-programme negative thought patterns and limiting beliefs that will otherwise hold you back (a process I like to call limiting belief whack-a-mole - you never know when they’re going to pop up!).

Strategy + Beliefs = Business Prosperity

Knowing what you’re doing at a functional level combined with self-confidence and a deep-rooted belief in yourself means you get the outcomes you want.

My values

Being honest and transparent with you about what is possible when you build a business and the context from which I have built my own, is important to me as an ethical business owner. I’m all about celebrating the wins but also sharing the tough days too.
