Coaching with Anna

Coach and Leadership Supervisor

I work with people who seek clarity and confidence in their personal and professional lives.
Through meaningful conversations, I support you to clarify your goals, explore new perspectives, generate ideas, navigate challenges and achieve what matters to you the most.

I am an experienced, empathetic and trustworthy coach with a genuine concern for people thriving and living fulfilled lives. I bring real curiosity to the challenges you are facing and support you to uncover answers and solutions to create the life and work you want. 

Whether you are managing life and work challenges and want things to get a whole lot better, or you are succeeding with your goals and want to find your edge, coaching provides an opportunity for you to make your chosen changes.

Since 2003 I have provided consulting, mentoring and coaching services within corporate, government, education, private and non-profit sectors. I bring this experience along with current and relevant formal coaching qualifications and credentials. 

Why work with a coach?

Most people choose to work with a coach because they want something different - a change that will improve their life. When we engage with another person who can notice and highlight what we don't necessarily see ourselves, and who sees us as resourceful and capable, providing non-judgemental support, we are empowered to achieve our goals and aspirations. 

Having someone in our corner prompting us to reflect on what we are thinking and saying, how we are being, and what we are doing, creates awareness. Awareness is the key to shifts in thinking and behaving.

We gain insight by uncovering our own answers and thinking about our challenges from a different perspective. The coach provokes thought by listening deeply, asking skilful questions, being fully present, reflecting and clarifying.

The benefits of a coaching relationship:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of yourself  
  • Appreciate and utilise your strengths 
  • Manage stress and adversity more effectively
  • Find purpose and fulfilment
  • Gain more control over your response to stress
  • Set and achieve realistic but challenging goals
  • Communicate more effectively
  • Feel more confident and assured
  • Make decisions with clarity and confidence 
  • Expand your creative energies
  • Transform limiting beliefs about yourself
  • Develop resilience
  • Build your individual brand 
  • Cultivate courage, and much more.
