As a Certified Naked Mind Coach I am passionate about helping women who've lost themselves to motherhood, get unstuck and reconnect with their true selves while finding the 'missing peace' to living joyfully and wholeheartedly.

"Meade took me to a place where I felt resistance - I’m so glad she did, even though it felt uncomfortable at the time. It was the catalyst that allowed me to grow and move on, in tackling something I’ve tried to solve for a very long time and up to this point I’d not found anything that really worked. I found the answer within myself, but I could only do that because Meade shone a light on it. She is insightful, gentle and firm - firm in the way that you feel safe, held whilst you work through whatever it is, and secure that you are going to feel better, and be better, on the other side. Thank you so much, you are amazing Meade! "
"I am 64 years old and have been a heavy, but "functional" drinker for about 25 years. I have known for some time that this needs to stop. I read The Naked Mind (TNM) and did "The Alcohol Experiment." I was able to stop and then moderate but my goal is to FINALLY be alcohol free-- forever. I knew I needed some kind of help to get me to my goal. I found out about TNM Coaching and decided I needed to try this. I was nervous about opening up to a stranger....and then I had my first meet up with Meade Shirley!!! Meade has been a complete game changer for me. To my surprise, I felt comfortable immediately in sharing with Meade. She has lived experience, she is compassionate, encouraging and fun (so it's not all heavy). She has presented me with so many ideas and tools to facilitate my progress to my goal. Meade has helped me to really dig deep, through honest self reflection to understand what was at the root of my drinking. I give Meade my highest recommendation!!!! "
"Meade has a natural gift for listening with compassion and without judgment. I felt very comfortable talking with her and she helped me become much more clear and focused with some things that were holding me back. She asked questions in a way that naturally guided me into coming up with solutions that I couldn't find on my own. She knows how to connect with clients and create a safe space for vulnerability and honesty. I would highly recommend Meade as a coach to anyone ready to take that next positive step in their life. "
"Meade has so much heart and attention for her client, she offers hope and empathy without judgement. You instantly feel trust with Meade and she guides you in clear steps to help you move forward. "
"As a recently retired woman who was facing a new chapter in my life, I needed help finding my authentic self and establishing a new path. I had never had the time to indulge such a quest as a busy executive. Meade was the perfect partner in this journey! I was amazed at her sixth sense in coaching me: asking the right questions, suggesting the right resources and guiding me to find the answer for myself instead of just telling me the answer. What a gift she was!"
