Welcome to Quiet Connections
Hi, we’re Hayley & Stacie. We help quieter people like you with:
- developing strategies to manage social anxiety & overcoming that feeling of not being good enough & your tendency to hide yourself away;
- exploring the strengths of your quieter qualities, practising your uniquely impactful ability to express yourself & redefining what it means to be quiet as part of a community of people on the same path,
So that you can show up confidently as your true self, feel a sense of belonging & grow to love your true quiet nature.
What Do You Need on Your Journey to Quiet Confidence?

Are you early in your journey of overcoming your tendency to hide yourself away & feel you're not enough? You’ll love the support & understanding of a community of people on the same path of discovering their inner strengths & ability to express themselves (you can access free short courses too!)
Socially Anxious to Quietly Confident Group Programme

Navigating Your Life 1:1 Coaching Programme
Are you ready to dive in & explore what more there is inside of you & all the possibilities that exist for you? You already believe that you can create change for yourself. Maybe you don't quite know how or what that looks like right now, but you're curious and ready to show up and be seen as the real you.
We know life isn’t easy for you right now…
You want to reach out and have a good time with the people around you, but you’re afraid of being laughed at or judged if you say something wrong.
You know you have answers, ideas and opinions to share but when you try, you panic and the words don’t come out (at least not in the order you wanted them to!)
You’d love to seize new opportunities, but you feel too anxious or embarrassed to show people the real you. You worry you’re missing out or falling behind in life.
But as long as you’re stuck in the fear of failure and rejection, you’ll never be able to achieve all that you want to in your life... and you have the potential to do so much more that you believe right now!
We know, because we’ve been where you are too.
We're Here to Help You
Because we've also felt so anxious in social situations & embarrassed about how ‘flawed’ we were, that we did our best to hide ourselves away to avoid being judged, criticised & rejected.
We spent hours secretly googling “Why am I so shy?” “Overcoming anxiety” & “How to be more confident”. When we hit rock bottom, we tried counselling too. But it didn’t help. We were missing so many puzzle pieces & working with people who just couldn’t understand our behaviour.
Yet we persisted in our quest to understand why social anxiety was affecting us & we discovered how to make changes for ourselves so we can show up & be seen as we want to in life.
Now, as certified coaches, we help people like you to move through social anxiety & walk the path to quiet confidence too, without the secrecy & shame, so you can be more of who you really are, underneath the fear & avoidance – because that’s what it really takes to feel like you belong.
"If we can go from feeling like we don’t fit in and can’t do normal everyday tasks, to being successful in careers and relationships, and even speaking in public, then so can you..."

"When I first came to Quiet Connections, I found human interactions really difficult, and I had a very intense fear of being judged, felt unworthy and ashamed. I very much thought that I was defected and that there was something wrong with me.
Working with Quiet Connections made me start to challenge my limiting beliefs and see that my thoughts are not my reality; they’re very powerful, but they don't define who I am. I realised that actually I'm not all these labels that I had said to me over the years and it's made me challenge how I saw myself and to stop rejecting myself.
I want people to know that there's hope. Just because you're used to thinking and behaving in a certain way, it doesn't mean that that is your destiny. And I would definitely recommend doing comfort zone stretches because there's no joy in being stuck. They say life begins at the end of it and it definitely true. "
