What My Clients Are Saying


Coaching with Anne is an amazing experience of self-discovery, creating new insights and clarity. Anne has a wonderful ability to easily peel back the layers to uncover the true cause of the issue that is truly powerful. With these insights I am stepping forward through what were once old fears with new confidence, ease and excitement. This level and depth of coaching is rare to find and I fully recommend Anne and her coaching programmes to anyone who wants to take up the challenge of being their true self and achieving their big (scary) dreams.

Working with Anne has been a truly valuable experience. She has come to know my character, my strengths and my weaknesses in such a way that our sessions are focused on things I need to see or consider to move forward or overcome limiting thought patterns. It’s not always comfortable, but I have seen myself in new ways that has allowed for growth past my preconceived understanding of who I am and what I’m capable of. I would recommend Anne to anyone seeking career or life coaching.

Kate Sowden
National Diversity & Inclusion Manager

Anne is a professional who takes the time to understand holistically who you are as a person and works with you to discover your best self. Anne made me feel comfortable enough that I was able to breakdown, which enabled significant breakthroughs. I am now able to distinguish connections between my past and current personal relationships. Anne gave me the tools I needed in order to move forward and break unhealthy attachments

Anne is a truly empathetic coach and helped me identify a blind spot that was causing me internal conflict. She challenged me, hard, and kept me accountable to focusing on developing myself in a way that would make the biggest impact in my life. I would recommend Anne if you are looking for a coach that will help you on your journey to being the best version of you.

Emma Potts
Senior Operations Manager

Coaching with Anne Cotterell has shed light on my blind spots. She has an uncanny ability to see through my disguises and gently reveal back to me how l am actually showing up in my world. Her warmth, humour and sincere interest in helping me to help myself has led me to make necessary yet hard decisions that needed to be made. Highly recommended.

Anne has been coaching me for 6 months now, and she has helped me gain clarity in the direction id like to move forward with in my life. Through her skills and expertise she has supported me in clearing limiting beliefs and fear of failure. She creates a space that challenged me from a space of kindness and caring. And I would recommend her services to anyone who wants to move forward in a positive, rewarding way

Discover Yourself Using the Wisdom of the Enneagram

The Enneagram is a map of human nature that describes nine different ways of relating. Each way of relating expresses a specific ego identity which is moulded from our early childhood experiences.  While we each preference a particular way of relating, the Enneagram is an open system, so it is common to find a little of yourself in each type.  A rich map to personal development, the Enneagram does not box in people, but rather opens a pathway to self-discovery and greater personal awareness of and beyond our ego identity.


The Enneagram is one of the most powerful developmental coaching frameworks and not only fast-tracks insight, growth and integration, but also gives durability and magnitude to the development process over time.


Using Enneagram Wisdom to Grow and Thrive in Uncertainty

Uncertainty throws itself at us in many contexts of our life, particularly work, relationships and parenting.  Red Leaf Studio's Enneagram coaching circles and workshops for individuals, groups and teams provide a pathway for psychological and spiritual development.  By gaining awareness and understanding of the thinking habits, blindspots and defence strategies that arise from fear and anxiety, we can integrate more resourceful ways of being and engaging, thereby facilitating greater confidence and capacity to thrive in uncertainty.

What Participants are Saying

"A great self-exploratory day away from chaos. The retreat day was full of easy to understand information on the Enneagram personality types. I learnt more about the reasoning behind my thoughts. As I start to understand more about my inner world, I start to heal and grow."

Jessica O'Meara - 'Explore Yourself & Free Yourself' 2019 attendee

"The day retreat was a great tool for personal insight and for opening into deep group sharing and discussion. I have been reminded to look after myself and be true to myself. I also feel more compassion for others from this experience in understanding we all have different personality types."

Rebecca Caine - 'Explore Yourself & Free Yourself' 2019 attendee

"A safe and enlightening journey on the road to further understanding and growth. I now have tools to take with me to integrate into my life and relationships. I now recognise that my fear of conflict can mess with my equilibrium and authenticity. I also see that my inability to say 'no' leads to an unhealthy unbalanced me that impacts those around me. Thank you for the Enneagram teachings."

Kerry Bower - 'Explore Yourself & Free Yourself' 2019 attendee


"Be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop."


The leaf’s green pigment absorbs sunlight, giving life to the tree.  As the season changes the green pigment breaks down, revealing the red, orange and yellow pigments expressed in Autumn. One by one the leaves let go so the tree can evolve, making way for new growth.

Like the leaf, we can allow ourselves to be open to change, renewal and growth, to let go of what may have served us well in our past, but is no longer serving us now. For many of us, letting go can be a struggle to release what we’ve become accustomed to, habituated in our life. The leaf is most beautiful when it is in the midst of letting go, in the midst of it’s own transformation, to provide space for new growth.  There is true beauty in vulnerability and knowing the art of surrender.
