This is truly a great organization. Shamina is such a talented individual. I've never felt as though someone actually understands me the way she understands me in order to give me legitimate advice. Her real insight and personal experience gives me the strength to carry on every day after having experienced an abusive relationship. I've tried therapy in the past for my family issues, but it was not effective at all. I began to think therapists just want the insurance money. The fact that Shamina provides her services for free indicates her love for truly helping others succeed in life relationships and it's so apparent during your sessions. She's amazing at what she does and is very accommodating. The hours are super convenient too. It's really hard to believe that something this great is free and so accessible. I wish I discovered the center sooner. I travel an hour just to see her and shes worth every mile, gallon of gas, and toll, and parking I have to pay to get there and so much more!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I'd want to clone Shamina so I'd have her 24/7. She's one of the best people I've come across in my life.

I was never into talking to a stranger about my life until I discovered The Why Center. Having Shamina as my life coach has helped me in realizing what I need to work on. My perspective of counseling has changed dramatically. Shamina makes me feel like I'm talking to a friend who is giving me positive feedback about the neccessary changes I need to make in my life. Everyone needs to give Life Coaching a chance, it can change you too.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The changes I will make is having more life coaches so I won't have to share Shamina.

My experience at the WHY center is mainly indescribable, but i will say that Shamina Allen is a phenomenal person. I have met with her three times and in three sessions i have completely changed my train of thought. Shamina gave me hope and she gave me the best advice for me, and because of her I am putting years worth of business ideas into play and starting my business in only 2 months. Without a doubt with out the WHY center i will not be mentally and physically where I am today. Everyone needs to experience this center and personally Shamina as well.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Only the fact that Shamina Allen needs some help, everyone cant be superwoman all the time.

I have been with The Why Center since May 10th. Since then I have had many productive life coaching sessions and have been pleased with the results. I am very grateful for all The Why Center has helped me accomplish in such a short time. I now have a good job (thanks to great resume writing assistance), a clear plan & view of where my life is headed, and a great support team behind me. I highly recommend The Why Center to anyone considering life coaching.
