Working with me

My Practice

Environment is important.

I create a safe and trusted space so you feel free to open up and start questioning.

Inquiry brings understanding.

We explore your values, beliefs and blocks giving you a better awareness of your purpose.

Responsible adaptation.

You choose your attitudes, behaviours and actions to get the outcomes you design.





Getting Started

How it works

Get in touch. I’ll contact you to book an initial chat.
If you like what you hear, we can arrange an hour together.

I’ll help you find out what you’re looking for and what you want to achieve.

After this, you commit to five 60 minute sessions over five weeks.
I commit to that too.

And that’s it.
If you want to keep going…
Pay per session or take advantage of block booking discounts.

I had the pleasure of receiving some private coaching from Anne which was focused on helping me set my professional / personal goals and objectives. This was delivered with enthusiasm and clarity and the framework inspired me to think through my various aspirations going forward and how I would achieve them.

I found the Goal Mapping Exercise Anne took me through of great value. I could really start to see the value of setting my own goals and identifying the actions I needed to undertake in order to achieve my goals within a given time period. This has made be more focused and I review my goals and actions regularly.

Goodbye Minnie the Minx

Goodbye Minnie the Minx

I remember, a few years ago, I was on a train. Friday night, rush hour, leaving London for the Hampshire countryside.  With lots of commuters, having done dress-down Friday in their chinos and blue blazers.  White shirt, no tie.  Not uniform but uniform if you know what I mean.  Anyway, it was obviously crowded and I…

What happens next

What happens next

I have had a trying time since I got back in touch with my intuition. I always wondered what happens after the story ends – after the truth is revealed, after the final kiss when the lovers discover they are made for each other, after the mystery is solved.  When the goal is finally reached. We’re…

Don’t think it, feel it – The Commuter Coach

Don’t think it, feel it – The Commuter Coach

This weekend I have started to get back in touch with my intuition. Here’s how it happened. I was sitting outside on a deck on the Isle of Wight overlooking the sea. My friend said to me “Anne, I don’t think we’ve got to the root of your fear yet.” It was my second day there.…

The Commuter Coach – I made a new friend

This week I made a new friend. I met a lady at a class earlier this year, and I thought she was one of the shiniest lights I’ve seen in a while. I wanted her to be my friend.  Now normally when this happens my demons jump up and start shouting at me “Of course…
