“Anne is an excellent leadership coach and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is wanting to develop a more authentic leadership style and greater self-awareness. She is warm and direct with an ability to help you identify a clear pathway to operating from a more creative space.”

Briana Kish
Senior Creative Manager

I had the pleasure of working with Anne recently with the ambition to gain more awareness and insight into my leadership style/skills to identify growth areas.  Anne challenged my beliefs in all the right ways and helped me to unlock a few 'light bulb' moments that have led to significant personal and professional growth. Anne was always open and approachable and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her. I highly recommend working with Anne if you are looking to grow yourself as an inspiring and strategic leader.

Director, Pay Brands

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

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.

Kelly Samson
Business Owner

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

I would recommend Anne, she is a highly intuitive leadership, career, and personal coach with great courage to have difficult conversations with sensitivity. Having had several coaching conversations with Anne it has helped me clarify my career direction by highlighting my strengths and transferable skills. Through this journey there have also been some personal aha-moments raising self-awareness in areas I need to develop and address further, I continue to work with Anne to master these. I feel that it is a great privilege to work with Anne, I know a lot of coaches and very few could achieve the results Anne does so quickly! She has a powerful yet gentle style.

"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.
