Marie-Anne Francois - Coaching Mums to rediscover their identity
Have you thought ''what happened to me???''
Hi, my name is Marie-Anne, mother of 3 boys, married for 25 years. I am a certified Life Coach trained with Animas an ICF accredited course. I am also a Zumba Instructor and have worked in the corporate world for over 20 years in the insurance and legal sector. I have coached and mentored teams whilst managing a portfolio of clients , so I have a thorough understanding of balancing a corporate full time job and being a mother.
For the last 22 years, I doted my whole life to my 3 sons trying to be the best mother I possibly could whilst always working full time. I found I never did anything for myself, as much I enjoy being a mother, I always felt there was something missing which was my own IDENTITY!!! I discovered this the hard way when my eldest son moved away 2 years ago to go too University, I was absolutely devastated! As time went by, I thought Marie-Anne, you have to let your son flourish let him grow and develop into an independent man. Then I thought, what about me???
As much as we love our children, do you ever stop to think about the person you have become? As mum's, our identity changes as we bring up our children. My mission is to help mum's aligned themselves with who they are and rediscover their passions and purpose prior to having children.
I coach in the following areas:
Career loss - have you given up your job when you had children and lack confidence to get back into the work force or have no idea what you can do to earn money whilst working around your children?
Weight gain - Since having your children have you put on extra pounds?
Work/Life/Family Balance - Tired of working fulltime and struggling to get that balance?
Self Love - Feel guilty in taking time out for yourself?
Confidence - Lack confidence in yourself?

What people say about working with me:
Lisa – New Malden – UK
Thank you Marie-Anne at Fusion for helping me get my life back on track!
When I first met with Marie-Anne back in May, I was struggling to keep my head above water. Life had thrown some nasty curve balls and as a busy mum of three boys, I was constantly feeling overwhelmed and anxious.
After my initial consultation, we narrowed down the areas I wanted to work on and discussed what I wanted to achieve. With further weekly meetings, I felt able to tackle these areas individually, without triggering my anxiety and slowly start to get my confidence back to make the changes. Marie-Anne has given me the tools, not only to prioritise myself again but also to discover what I wanted the next stage of my life to look like.
Even though our journey together has come to an end, we still have regular catch ups and I can honestly say that I wouldn’t have known where to begin without her.
If you’re looking for a coach who is kind yet tough, a great listener and can hold you accountable for how YOU can help change your life then I can highly recommend Marie-Anne. I have gained control of my negative, anxious default mode and gained a happy, positive, bright outlook and change many areas for the better.
A huge thanks to my coach, Marie-Anne.

Marie Anne coached me in the area of self confidence and self belief that I could become a powerful, back bone coach for people living on the margins.
She helped me to visualise new ways of recognising where I was being stopped in my own thought processes to achieve my goals as I tend to over-think and over-analyse situations.
Marie Anne enabled me to really get in touch with areas of my life that I lacked courage and allowed F-E-A-R (False Evidence Appearing Real) to get the better of me. By embracing my Fear, I allowed back bone courage to enter new spaces in my life that had been previously unexplored.
Marie Anne brings a beautiful coaching style which is solid, clear and filled with much enthusiasm, energy and compassion. Thank you for sharing those gifts with me.
I highly recommend Marie Anne as a very competent and confident life coach who will make a real difference to your life.
Sharon – Liverpool – UK
I came to Marie-Anne for coaching on starting my own business. I was overwhelmed with what seemed like an endless list of tasks ahead of me and I needed to get clarity on the immediate steps to take. I was also struggling with limiting beliefs that I could be successful as a business owner. Marie-Anne helped me to identify the steps to take and to create a clear plan of action to move ahead. She also worked with me to challenge my limiting beliefs and reframe the beliefs into more positive thoughts. I found her coaching approach to very supportive and encouraging. I have now launched my business and thank Marie-Anne for helping me to achieve my goals.
