With nearly 30 years experience of running small businesses and previously a career in teaching, I am passionate about working with people wanting change. I help you to step back and get a new perspective on your situation. Providing you with a confidential space to express your thoughts without fear of judgement is the best environment for you to gain clarity. When you are entrenched in your problems it is difficult to see a way out. You may be tired of going over the same thinking and getting nowhere. I will help you develop fresh thinking and together we will consider your options in the light of who you are as well as what you want to achieve. Recognising your skills and positive qualities you will realise how much more resourseful you are than you thought. Your confidence will increase and with it your motivation and sense of empowerment. Not only will you be taking productive action on the issues we discuss, you will also develop the tools to deal with other situations effectively and with greater ease.
We work together for a number of sessions to shift negative or stuck thinking, take supportive actions and consolodate this new productive thinking.Sessions of one hour are tailored to your needs and we discuss how many you might want at the introductory session.
If you want to be happy in your life and work and to be getting the best from yourself, coaching can help. I am passionate about facilitating empowerment and feel privileged to have worked with hundreds of clients to help them achieve new awareness, find solutions and develop strategies for positive change.

I taught maths at secondary schools for a number of years before setting up a sandwich shop and then two coffee bars. Whilst running these businesses I had three children and also started a small property business with my husband. Mostly for reasons of work/life balance I sold my catering businesses in 2004 and trained to be a life coach shortly after.
I coach people with life and career issues; teachers; small business owners and groups of small business owners.
I am committed to continuous professional development and attend courses regularly as well as striving for improved accreditation. I am proud to be accredited as a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation.
Areas of coaching I deal with
Other areas of coaching I deal with
I work with small business owners individually and in groups - Inspired Solutions Mastermind Groups.
I have been running businesses for nearly 30 years and I understand the issues that business owners typically deal with. In addition to all the personal management skills you need to develop, running your own business you can feel isolated and miss the support of colleagues or a boss with whom you can discuss problems and ideas. Working with a coach you have a confidential space in which to 'think aloud', identifying the nub of the issue and gaining clarity so that the best choices can be made, efficiently. With no judgement or agenda, I am able to listen, question, feedback and challenge (with your permission) to help you deal with those nagging doubts, fears and uncertainties. Only when you are performing at your best can your business be truly successful.
In our groups, which meet monthly, we add the support and advice of other members to listening and questioning to help members deal with any issue that impacts on their business. Having the other members hold us accountable further increases the value of that support.
I offer a free 30 minute coaching consultation and you are welcome to call me for a chat to arrange this or discuss your requirements. Please visit my website where you can request information on my coaching programmes.
"A Coaching friend recommended Anne Miller to me, as I had felt very stuck, and in a negative space, particularly about my response to work. I was not new to coaching, after a reasonably effective series of session to address work/life balance issues.
I immediately found Anne to be supportive and crystal clear in her initial correspondence and first session with me.
I wanted to use Anne’s coaching sessions to help me work through issues about the place work held for me after taking the decision to work on a freelance basis. I started the sessions feeling insecure, a little anxious and lacking in confidence about my skills and capabilities.
Anne very skilfully assisted me in identifying the issues with more clarity, and perspective than I had been able to do on my own. Not only did Anne “listen”, but she challenged and helped me question some of my deep seated and irrational assumptions about work and money and really helped me look at how my current negative patterns were preventing me from feeling clear and strong about myself. Anne provided me with a series of bespoke “tools”, which to this day are really proving to be the most amazing ways in which I am feeling more positive and hopeful about all areas of my life! I have also used them with my children, who are also seeing the benefits.
I am no longer “worrying” about money, and feel more equipped to respond to situations in a positive and confident manner. Throughout Anne’s coaching sessions, I felt understood and accepted as a person, which in turn supported me to practice the various tools in many aspects of my life, and not just those situations pertaining to work.
Anne’s wisdom, her kindness and above all her insight has had an amazing and quite tangible impact upon my life. I feel more confident, and thankful for all the aspects of my life, and I now have tools and techniques to tackle any of life’s challenges and insecurities! I would have no doubts about recommending Anne Miller to anyone who is interested in coaching, to anyone that isn’t feeling confident or positive about themselves or an area of their life that they wish to change."
