“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.” Business coaching client
I work with individuals and organisations nationwide both 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 best lives, understand & accept themselves more fully, aim higher (if that's what they really want), recognise their strengths & now I get to call that my job! I have been incredibly lucky being able 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. It is the most common theme in feedback & I particularly love helping people identify & start effectively applying their strengths in their life. 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 be the best they can be. 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 including Learning & Development, HR, Sales, Public Sector and events. We are all highly qualified, experienced coaches & facilitators &will create a bespoke programme to suit your requirements. We are all members of the International Coaching Federation and have a wealth of experience and enthusiasm.
