Lovely Words from Coaching Clients
I have felt more confident in myself and loving towards me.
"My daughter was about to start school so I was looking for someone to motivate me, build my confidence and to set some goals.
I had a lot of information going on in my head but I just couldn't point myself in the right direction.
I needed help to work out who I was as a woman - not just a mum - as I was about to enter a stage that meant I had freedom!
I felt excited, nervous and apprehensive before we started coaching, however as soon as I started working with Annie, I felt comfortable straight away. Like she was a long lost friend - so personable.
Since working together, I have felt more confident in myself and loving towards me.....hubby has noticed this! Annie showed me so much warmth, kindness and empathy for all that we do and experience during motherhood. She supported me in my coaching journey, held time and space for me and gave me something to be excited about.
Coaching gave me much needed clarity and a strong sense of purpose and self-determination.
"Working with Annie over the past 6 months has seen the fulfilment of my greatest aspiration: to release my first novel into the world, and step boldly into my career as a published author.
The personal growth I’ve achieved, and robust mental health I’ve been able to maintain through so many unexpected twists and turns — including a global pandemic! — is testament to Annie’s coaching skills, and her beautiful presence and influence. Meeting with Annie fortnightly was a shining highlight of my schedule — and felt like a warm hug from a wonderful and honest friend, who always had my best interests at heart, and my goals ever at the forefront of her mind.
I don’t know how many writers get to work with a life coach in their career — but now I KNOW far more should! I feel so very, very fortunate and grateful to have had the opportunity. Writing can be a lonely profession at times — and yet your mind is always whirring, and full of ideas and plots and plans and voices. Coaching gave me much needed clarity and a strong sense of purpose and self-determination. When the creative mind is often, quite essentially, a messy soup of possibility — coaching gave the practical, planning side of my brain: focus, direction, steps, and accountability.
I will dearly miss being coached by Annie — and will treasure and carry with me the lessons I’ve learned into this next, most exciting phase of my life.”
I have been able to move forward from a place of stagnation, fear and anxiety to one of power, energy and love.
"What a life changing experience it has been to learn from such a knowledgeable and caring mentor.
Annie's light is contagious, and with her patient, nurturing and loving guidance, she has allowed me to rediscover the light that was always inside of me.
I am beyond grateful for the gift of Annie's calm and reassuring presence and wisdom. During our sessions I have been lovingly held without judgement, seen and listened to. With her support, guidance and encouragement, I was inspired to face my greatest fears. Self-limiting thoughts were acknowledged so they could then be released. Things that I found terrifying are now done with ease and confidence. My self-worth and belief in what I have to offer the world has grown exponentially over the first 12 weeks we have worked together and I am so excited to continue working together so that I can continue to grow and reach my greatest potential.
Because of Annie, I have been able to move forward from a place of stagnation, fear and anxiety to one of power, energy and love.”
I am confident again in my abilities!
"I was searching for something/someone to give me direction. I didn't really have any expectations going into the sessions but was looking forward to exploring how to tackle these goals and overcome my blocks.
I mainly wanted to work on my body image and self-confidence and feel more connected with my husband again.
I really appreciated Annie's warmth and reassurance that I was normal! I felt like I could get on track to moving towards my goals instead of staying stagnant.
I am confident again in my abilities! I know that I can achieve again and don't have to stay as an unfulfilled person anymore. I hugely appreciated Annie's time and efforts. She has helped me so much.”
I was able to really listen to myself with what I wanted and needed which has helped me to achieve more in the world.
"I knew it was time for me to step into something greater - something that was really going to make me face my own vulnerability. I was lacking creating space for myself and also struggling with the idea of launching into a new career where I also needed to use social media.
I have worked with a coach before but working with Annie was very different experience. Annie just let me be me. I realised through the experience that I was carrying a lot of expectations on myself and Annie gave me a place to feel peace and ease.
I know that I have Annie’s support and, in knowing that, I am free to step out and take risks, to be vulnerable and to show my true self to the world knowing that the real version of me is completely worthy.
Annie has been an “anchor” to me. As a high achiever I can often start a task with so much energy and then let it fall to the wayside with out direction. Annie would gently remind me of my vision of what I wanted to achieve and that it was time to step into action.
Annie is an inspiring, creative and calm coach who provides you the anchor to help you feel back in your inner self. Her consistent approach to see what the real issues are underneath the “noise” gives clarity to your process and who you are aspiring to be. I was able to really listen to myself with what I wanted and needed which has helped me to achieve more in the world.
Annie never had any other motive except to be kind and genuine in supporting me to feel aligned. This experience in itself felt overwhelmingly delicious and healing. If you are wanting someone to hold you lovingly whilst gently opening your eyes to finding the real you, Annie is the coach for you.”
I feel really positive going forward and excited about the changes I am making.
"From our first session together, I felt that I had been heard, that my worries were not trivial and that I would get the strategies I needed. I was impressed with how easy Annie was to talk to and how she was able to take what we discussed and turn them into goals I wanted to work towards.
Since working together, I have noticed a change in mindset. When I feel myself slipping into old habits, I hear Annie’s voice and use one of the strategies I learnt. This will stay with me for a long time and is really powerful.
I have already tackled some big jobs I had been putting off as well as spending time doing the things I want to do with no guilt. I am feeling more confident about work and can see how to get more out of it. I have even been making time to exercise and enjoying it! I feel really positive going forward and excited about the changes I am making.”
After our time together, I am now speaking my truth! Standing up for what is right for me.
"When we first started working together, I was in a loop of indecision, attempting to make life-impacting decisions all at the same time and I was drowning under the (self inflicted) pressure of it all.
After our time together, I am now speaking my truth! Standing up for what is right for me. I am listening to my inner voice and gut instinct and making decisions true to myself, my beliefs and inline with what I want to achieve.
I can't thank Annie enough for being so open and accepting. For listening judgement free, offering compassionate and realistic advice, for providing achievable goals and, most importantly, for helping to keep me accountable.
Annie's time, her words of encouragement and her kindness were much appreciated.”
