Manage stress, overwhelm and burnout. Approach challenging situations with clarity and calm.

Managing various stressors such as workload, deadlines, challenging relationships, unclear expectations, and the pressure to achieve personal or professional milestones can significantly affect our overall mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing.

"When you have your health, you have everything. When you do not have your health, nothing else matters at all" - Augusten Burroughs 

Proactively managing stress supports us in building effective coping strategies, becoming more resilient and achieving better outcomes in all aspects of life - mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The key to managing stress is to adapt our thinking style. We have little if any control over what happens to us in life, but we do have control over how we respond to events and situations. Learning to respond to what happens as well as developing skills to navigate our thoughts and feelings is one of the best ways to manage stress effectively.

Stress is not what happens to us - it's how we respond to it. 

Together we can work on practical techniques to support you to bring more self-awareness and presence, and to do what matters to you. Doing what matters to you, or living in alignment with your values and developing a sense of purpose has many benefits including lowering stress levels.

I support you to:
  • Recognise your stressors and their effects
  • Understand what you can and cannot control
  • Develop the ability to be more present and self-observant
  • Understand and manage feelings of anxiety
  • Implement practices that calm your nervous system and support your wellbeing

Other areas we can address to reduce and manage stress:

  • Habits to promote physical and mental health - e.g., eating, sleeping and exercise
  • Work-life balance for more fulfilment
  • Social connections and support networks
  • Attitudes that promote resilience - e.g., openness to change
  • Self-compassion and self-care
  • Taking time out for leisure and fun
  • Informal mindfulness - e.g., taking notice of what makes you happy

I work with people who want to step into their best selves, appreciate feeling well physically and mentally, are willing to make an effort, and who are open to new perspectives. 

How coaching works with me:

1. We meet for a complimentary "chemistry check" and to discuss your goals, the changes you would like to make, and the outcomes you would like to have.

2. We work with my signature coaching framework to create a tailored plan that aligns with your goals.

3. Working together includes:

    • A 90-minute discovery and planning session
    • 6 x 1-hour coaching sessions over 3 months 
    • 1 x follow-up session in 1 month
    • Online coaching sessions via Zoom or phone at a convenient time for both
    • Relevant resources, tools, reflection exercises, and reading recommendations 
    • Unlimited email and phone support for 3 months

      Contact me for a complimentary and confidential discussion about managing your stress and becoming more resilient.

      "Over a period of months Anna has helped me bring clarity and a sense of purpose to my life. It's easy to get overwhelmed by all that you think you need to do. Anna's calm and centred approach helped me work through difficult challenges in my life. While I chose what we talked about in each session the different areas seemed to flow seamlessly to reach a better whole. Anna's warmth and her honest feedback kept me focused on what I was striving to achieve". - Angela D, Self-Employed Business Owner
