About me

Hi my name is Anne Marie and I am an accredited and qualified Cognitive Behavioural Life Coach and I use a Mind Body approach to my coaching.

I offer 1-2-1 coaching, group coaching and facilitate courses for you to live life with Calm and Confidence to achieve your goals.

In my work as a Coach and course facilitator, I specialise in the following areas of coaching:

  • Stress Management
  • Confidence
  • Wellbeing
  • Personal Development
  • Performance

My own life journey up to now has given me the most amazing opportunities to learn, teach, coach and work in these areas which I am passionate about. Furthermore, everything, I share with my clients, I also practice myself.

In addition, for the last five years, I have held the post of Associate Lecturer at the University of Chichester where I taught Creative Mind Body practices to acting undergraduates. I taught students to learn to breathe, relax and control performance anxiety, to enable them to be more confident and in creative flow for presence and better performance.

On top of that, I have facilitated workshops in stress management, resilience and wellbeing, assertiveness and communication for clients such as Central Saint Martins and the University of the Arts, London.

My desire is to help you too, to uncover your journey to a calmer, more confident, creative, happier and empowered you. To provide you with the tools, support and strategies to bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be, to achieving your goals.

During your coaching with me, I will draw on my wealth of knowledge and experience to create a tailored package of support to suit your individual coaching needs, be it to feel calmer or more in control of your life, or to boost your confidence and inner power.

All of my work includes five key areas: self awareness, self-care, personal responsibility, taking action, sustaining momentum and celebration.

My unique range of skills means that as well learning to manage your stress and anxiety more effectively feeling calmer and increasing your confidence and self-esteem, you will also learn to become the best version of yourself and to control your mind and body for better wellbeing and optimal performance. This will lead you to feel clearer, more focused and empowered to achieve your goals.

Actually, let me ask you a few questions:

  • Do you find it difficult to switch off?
  • Are there times when you feel the pressure and tension building up and you just want to run away?
  • Have you felt anxious or hesitant in situations where it affects your performance?
  • Do you find it hard to focus and be productive?
  • Are you constantly stressed, tired and overwhelmed?
  • Have you missed opportunities or avoided situations due to anxiety or lack of confidence?
  • Would you like to increase your confidence and improve your self-esteem?

If you answered "YES" to any of these, then my coaching would help you.

Let me explain how the coaching would work.

First, you would have a Free 30 minute consultation call or Zoom meeting with me, where we would discuss where you are now and where you want to be, towards feeling calmer and more confident. It would be an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little and for you to ask any questions that you may have about the coaching process.

If we decide to work together, we will set goals for each coaching session and I will support you with the process of achieving these goals by identifying the best strategies and tools that will move you forward to help reach your desired outcomes.

At the end of each coaching session, we will agree on actions to work on between sessions so that you get the most from your coaching sessions. I will be there to keep you accountable and motivated throughout your coaching journey and to celebrate your insights and wins.

I will help you to explore your mindset and physiology to uncover any unhelpful thoughts, images, emotions, behaviour, actions, limiting beliefs or language that may be holding you back, increasing your stress or anxiety, or may be potential barriers to your confidence, self-esteem or your performance.

We will then identify the best tools, strategies and support to overcome these, and help you to integrate more helpful habits and thought processes to apply in your everyday life.

Furthermore, as you uncover your strengths, abilities, solutions, self belief and your potential, you will develop the calm, confidence, clarity, and courage you always wanted that will propel you forward.

Empowered, motivated and taking action, your coaching sessions will be something that you look forward to as you witness your own growth and development.

Therefore, it is my mission to support you and help to evolve you to live life with Calm and Confidence becoming the best version of YOU, to achieve your desired goals.
