“Having Annie as a coach is like sunshine for my brain! She doesn’t just coach me, she CHAMPIONS me and helps me move through blocks that have had me stuck and frustrated, even when I don’t see how I can; Annie does.”
I work with individuals and organisations in person and via video or phone call so no matter where you are in the world we can work together! I have always loved supporting & encouraging people to live their lives to the full, understand & accept themselves more fully, aim higher (if that's what they really want), recognise their strengths & lean into challenges. I have been privileged enough to follow my passions in two former careers working with the most extraordinary people – firstly working in NZ, Australia, Ireland & California making my way up to senior management level in the International racehorse breeding industry & secondly working within further & higher education. Alongside lecturing & BSc degree course leading I was also a mentor for new lecturers & career coach for undergraduates & it was here I found my love for coaching.
What makes me different to other coaches?
I was going to start with my qualifications, but I know what my clients would say & that is my positive energy & innate ability to create a trusting environment. I love working with people &, I've been told my positivity is infectious. Couple my naturally warm & engaging style with an academic background in coaching aswell as being highly trained in neuroscience & positive psychology & the results are both powerful & sustainable! As well as being a highly qualified & accredited coach & trainer with the International Coaching Federation, I also teach on a Post Graduate in Business & Personal Coaching with Chester University & Barefoot Coaching & spend a lot of my free time learning about and honing my craft to ensure the best possible value for my clients. Oh and I LOVE pushing my own boundaries either in or on the sea or on the slopes at any opportunity!
I also work with a trusted group of associates offering coaching programmes and workshops nationwide as well as a number of different personality profiling & assessment options including MBTI, Strengthscope, Birkman and EQi2.0/360. Our aim is to support, enable and motivate individuals, teams and organisations to really make a difference. We believe that our clients have the answers and our role is to facilitate the enquiry process leading to authentic and informed solutions. All my colleagues come from a wide variety of backgrounds bringing diverse perspectives to the table.
Social Responsibility - Rewild Our World
As part of our social responsibility we’re proud to work with leaders of organisations such as Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. Their AIM is for more diverse, beautiful and resilient landscapes in which species can thrive and people can enjoy a deeper connection with nature. Their strategy concentrates on the rewilding of animals, the rewilding of ecosystems and the rewilding of people.
Social Responsibility - Making the Most of Life
We’re proud to have worked with leaders of organisations such as Children’s Hospice South West as part of our social responsibility. For 30 years Children's Hospice South West has been caring for children with life-threatening conditions by providing children's hospice and professional family support services. They are dedicated to making the most of short and precious lives through the provision of the best possible hospice care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions. The care offered at each of the three hospices is not just about medical and nursing support for sick children but enriching lives of the children and their whole family.
