This page is all about who I am, how I came to be here with you right now and why I am so passionate about helping people release trauma and create a life of passion, purpose and pleasure.



I'm Shannon Hottes


My friends call me Shani. 

 I have studied many different fields of trauma informed healing, Breathwork, a suite of sexuality modalities, women’s womb health, dove deep into masculine and feminine energies, relationships and intimacy, and neuro linguistics programming.

Now after 14 years in the personal development space, I am proud of the work that I do and the impact that I make for my community. 

It's been a big and beautiful journey to get me to where I am today and I am so grateful that I get to create this life as well as show others that they can do it too! 



Life Is Beautiful

We were not put on this earth to suffer, play small or to dull our pleasure down. There is so much magic in this world if we only dare to create it!

Create Your Beautiful Life

My Story

Becoming a coach and mentor started with my own personal healing journey.

When I was 20 years old I experienced an extremely traumatic event that changed my world forever. In one night I had my relationship of five years fall apart, and one of my closest friends passed away in a car accident.

This catapulted me into a deep and dark time, and I truly didn’t know how I was gonna get myself out of it. One day, a beautiful friend of mine gave me the book by Louise Hay - You can heal your life.

This book changed my life.

This was the very first book that I ever read in full, and it became my Bible. I reread this book multiple times and became the embodiment of this work, which led me to becoming the self-love coach I am today.

9 years on from reading this book at 20, I was in a domestic violent relationship. As I was leaving this relationship, I realise there was a deep healing that I needed to do for myself. I was a shell of my former self and I needed more than my self-love foundations. This relationship I called the trifecta, because it was the trifecta of abuse, emotional, physical and sexual.

AND, I am forever grateful for this time in my life because it was the catalyst for the mission I have today.


Why I Do It


When I went down the path of my own healing again, it gave me an even deeper passion and drive to gift this healing to others. I realised that a lot of women and men in this world have some form of trauma to heal and I became deeply passionate about paving a path of healing for others. 

So I became a coach and mentor and I am so profoundly dedicated to the results, growth and exponential expansion of my clients.
