Amanda Green Coaching
Welcome to Amanda Green coaching services!
Who I work with:
I work with people who are suffering from anxiety, concerned about their emotional health and willing to invest in themselves before things become out of control. You might not know where to start but you will have a desire to make positive change and live a fulfilled life. This is possible!
My clients are often high achievers and deep thinkers who need a challenge and have a sensitive and caring side. They are talented, strong and vibrant and often the very kind of people you would not expect to have anxiety. They feel as though they are under a dark cloud and know they are not being their true selves.
Often my clients are in a situation where their needs are not being met but they are “not a quitter” so they endure it for longer than most. They are ordinarily highly creative and resourceful people, however, the prolonged exposure to stress hormones has limited these functions and replaced them with a narrative that operates from a position of fear and threat with minimal energy levels and maximum self-doubt.
They convince themselves that their expectations are too high and that they simply need to develop more resilience. In the meantime, they are becoming more and more unhappy and their self-worth is taking a severe battering.
How I help:
When suffering from anxiety, life can become challenging and not in a good way. The results can be debilitating, limiting and even painful and terrifying.
One of the side effects of stress and anxiety is that it becomes difficult to think straight. We tend to adopt black and white thinking which leaves no room for creativity and possibility. In fact, it can feel like opportunity and motivation are unavailable.
A poor sleep pattern tends to ensue with anxiety (and depression) because, when we worry, we ruminate and spend more time in the dream state of sleep. This means we have less access to the nourishing slow sleep we need to feel refreshed when we wake. This leads to a host of other physical and emotional problems and we can become trapped in a perpetual cycle of hopelessness and feeling unable to cope.
Our mind goes into overdrive and keep us stuck in a counter-productive thought pattern which is detrimental to our self-esteem and impacts confidence as well as our problem-solving capabilities.
I help my clients reach a calm and confident state with affordable and effective, one to one telephone coaching sessions. I use a combination of performance coaching and psychotherapy to support you with a tailored strategy to meet your specific needs, depending on your situation and level of anxiety.
I will provide you with simple but impactful techniques you can use to manage your anxiety and also rebuild/improve your self-belief and confidence levels and help you develop a positive thought pattern.
My style is warm, supportive, progressive, non-judgemental and of course completely confidential.
WARNING: I do have a sense of humour and I am not afraid to use it where appropriate!

My background is 20 years experience in business and sales (corporate and self employed). In addition to coaching I currently help Lancashire based SME's with their business growth.
With extensive experience in mentoring, training and developing individuals and building high performance sales teams, I understand how to help others achieve. A large part of this is uncovering what could be holding you back from reaching either a material goal or a state you want to get into/feel.
I have observed and experienced how stress, pressure, confrontation and various work related challenges can affect the confidence, self-belief and happiness of strong and talented people.
I enjoy challenging myself whether that's in business, delivering presentations and workshops, as a mother or on the back of a horse! Life is too short to endure stress and anxiety and I have conducted hundreds of coaching sessions to help my clients work towards a calm and confident state.

Some testimonials from clients who have experienced coaching sessions with Amanda Green Coaching Services.
"The sessions with Amanda very quickly allowed me to choose a path and be absolutely confident that finally I could see where I was going. The session's very invaluable and Amanda has a gently and soothing voice, we did all my sessions over the phone, I felt completely prepared for each one and relaxed and focused at the end." Caroline
"I would like to thank Amanda for her help and support over our coaching sessions. I have found them incredibly helpful, motivating and positive for my self-development. Much more so than I ever thought I would." Stuart
"It may sound dramatic to say that Amanda has changed my life but it's true. Under Amanda's coaching, I have become a more confident, self-aware person. I no longer feel lost." Helen
"Her questions were insightful, thought provoking and sincere. I have found her to be highly competent in what she does" Sharon
"At first I was hesitant about being coached but I’m glad I embraced the opportunity. Since starting my coaching sessions with Amanda I feel more organised, motivated and have a clearer idea of what I need to do to achieve my goals. Amanda is a fantastic coach and I look forward to our calls, she’s always supportive and is never phased by any of the challenges I’m looking to overcome through coaching." Rob
"It has been a tough year and the coaching has really helped me not to panic, to get focused and to take control. I think without the grounding this has given me, I may have given up on my business this year." Eleanor
"Amanda was a great listener and always made me feel at ease. It was great that I could talk and not be judged or told what I should do; but rather given the opportunity to say out loud what I needed to do for me and make decisive conclusions. This opportunity have given me the confidence and self belief to be a more organised and forthcoming person." Jennie
"When I started my coaching journey with Amanda, I really didn't know what to expect. I hoped that Amanda would give me all the answers and that everything would be hunky dory. Well, things have changed massively for me but I wasn't handed the answers on a plate.
All my sessions were over the phone. I took myself off to a quiet space where I wouldn't get disturbed and through a series of thought provoking questions the sessions really made me rethink certain situations and look at things through a different pair of glasses.
I now sit back and think things through before making decisions. I think about what I really want and how my decisions (professional and personal) will impact on my work / life balance as well as the benefits to myself and my family. I think about the end goal and how I can do my best to ensure that this looks how I want it to.
My husband only commented a few days ago about how much he has seen my confidence grow and my decision making process change over the past year and he himself puts this down to the coaching and support I received from Amanda.
I cannot thank Amanda enough. It has been an amazing experience. I have laughed and cried more than once through my sessions and I often refer back to my notes to remind myself how far I have come and to keep focused." Jen
"Amanda was my Business Coach at a time when I felt I was at a crossroads in my career. Having worked with previous coaches in the past, I was delighted by Amanda's fresh approach to helping me come to the right decisions about my next move. A professional to the nth degree, her coaching is no -nonsense, supportive and progressive.
Amanda's strengths lie in building strong, trusting relationships quickly and in clear effective communication. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs a third party to help them gain clarity in their career, in whatever point they are at in life. If you are struggling to get from A to B or you're not sure where B is, this capable, motivational woman can help you." Sharon
