Welcome to Quiet Connections
Hi, we’re Hayley & Stacie. We help quieter people like you to:
- develop strategies to manage social anxiety & overcome that feeling of not being good enough & the tendency to hide yourself away;
- while 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 & learn to love your true quiet nature.
Where Are You on Your Path to Quiet Confidence?
You’re here because you want to know you’re not broken, weird or alone. You’re searching for answers, strategies and tools that you can immediately start implementing into your everyday life to help you manage anxiety and panic in social situations.
You’re on a quest to explore the strengths of your quieter qualities, practice your ability to express yourself and overcome your tendency to hide yourself away and feel like you're not enough, and you’d love the support and understanding of a community of people on the same path.
You're keen to dive in and explore what more there is inside of you and all the possibilities that exist for you. You believe that you can change and create change for yourself. Maybe you just don't quite know how or what that looks like right now, but you are super curious.
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 worry that you’re falling behind in life, but you feel too anxious and embarrassed to speak up and be seen. You don’t want to keep missing out; you just want to feel normal.
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 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.
It’s taken us over a decade of research, counselling, coaching, courses & getting uncomfortable in the name of growth to collect enough puzzle pieces to understand why social anxiety was affecting us & how to make changes for ourselves so we can show up & be seen in life.
Now, as certified coaches, we help people like you to move through social anxiety & walk the path to quiet confidence too, 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. "
