ABOUT

A country boy by birth, I was lucky in that I had very multi-cultural thinking parents who ensured that my brothers and I witnessed life in all parts of the world before moving into our chosen career paths. This resulted in extensive periods of my life being expressed in the UK, USA, France, Italy, Germany, Ireland, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Taiwan, Philippines, and South Africa, to name a few.
Shane Warren
The Student

Never really knowing what I wanted to be when I grew up I have been an avid student since graduating from school, always wanting to know more, this passion has driven me to undertake studies in theology, philosophy, psychology, business, finance and specialised areas of medicine and law; which, in short, qualifies me to be a glorified counsellor by trade. 

 

My studies in theology majored in the area of pastoral counselling; while my research in philosophy was in the area of humanities – this background combined with my training in the area of positive psychology and resilience has really influenced my approach to counselling and assisting people through life change.

 

By combining my life experience with the study I have done I am able to really connect with my clients at the various stages they find themself in life...

The Awardee

Through my work I have been lucky enough to receive a few rewards and acknowledgements; these include a number of Career Achievement and Community Development Decorations through the Australia Councils Young Australian of the Year Awards Program; a position within the New Leaders Foundation and Operation Livewire New Business Program; an Order of Australia recommendation nomination and several scholarships and small business awards.

 

In 2013 I was awarded Outstanding Coach by the Asia Pacific Allainces of Coaches for services to the AsiaPac Coaching Community.

Shane Warren
The Career

I have been able to perform many roles throughout my career, including trainer, business manager, youth worker, writer, coach, social researcher, political adviser and consultant.

 

I bring to our clinical relationship more then fifteen years experience as a group facilitator, counsellor and coach. Over the years I have worked with people from all around the world going through various stages of life change and have gained some powerful insights into what stumps us from getting ahead.

 

I currently hold the following leadership roles within the international coaching community Co-Chair of the Ethics Board of Review for the Asia Pacific Alliance of Coaches (APAC); Chair of Public Relations for APAC, Convener of the Association of Coaches AsiaPac Network; and recently stepped aside from Licensing Committee Member for the International Association of Coaching.

The Guy

When not working I'd love to say I can be found in the ocean on my board or practicing yoga or training for a marathon - but that was my life in my 20's.  Now well I’m a bit of a boring old family man who likes catching up with my parents and brothers or enjoying time with my partner and our children in whatever part of the world our work has taken us! 

 

(That's of course when I get a chance to step away from the couple of parent committee's I stick my nose in at my children's school...)
