Confidence/Self- Love Coach

About me

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile.

Are you living a life you designed or living by default??

I'm a qualified Transformational Life Coach. I specialize in, helping women rediscover their identity.  A lot of women I coach find themselves at a crossroad where they're not feeling fulfilled and know something is missing in their life.

The foundation of the coaching self-discovery process is Confidence, which I believe in my own life experiences is the key element to success and happiness.

As an Australian ex-pat, I offer online coaching to women all over the world.  Coaching sessions with me involve identifying the key areas where you want to make changes by helping you rediscover yourself by using transformational coaching tools and techniques. I am supportive, non-judgmental,  down-to-earth, and your biggest cheerleader.

I enable my clients to overcome the key issues affecting them or holding them back and provide transformation in their personal and professional lives.

Is this you?

  • Are you at a point in your life where you are questioning who am I?
  • Feeling frustrated with your career?
  • Do you lack the confidence and self-love to go out and pursue your dreams, goals, or passion?
  • Are you living the life you truly desire or want more meaning?
  • Are you feeling stuck in a rut, unfulfilled or lost?
  • Do you want to be honest with yourself and stop hiding behind excuses?
  • Would you like to find your purpose and do something truly meaningful, however, you don’t know where to begin and how to make it happen?

I work with women who are committed to making a change and want to step into a life that makes you come alive.

Below are the challenges and issues (not exclusive) that I can provide you support with:

  • Rediscover who you truly are
  • Confidence and Self-Love
  • Overcome low self-esteem
  • Career changes/promotion
  • Identifying and resolving limiting beliefs and fears (negative thoughts and behavioral patterns)
  • Questioning self-critical thoughts such as  "Am I good enough/I can't do it"
  • Finding your core values and aligning them with your life choices
    Identifying your strengths, skills, and passions
  • Develop a plan to help you make lasting authentic changes

Are you ready to explore what the above means - To book a free consultation call contact me via email:

I believe change only comes with intention and effort, happiness is an inside job and it all starts with you, Are you ready to live your life by design rather than default? If so, I look forward to hearing from you.

What people say about working with me:

Lindsey - Surrey - Uk

I came to Marie-Anne for careers coaching and left with so much more! She has genuinely changed my life and for that I will forever be grateful. 

Marie-Anne helped me realise the importance of self-love and not being afraid to put myself first. I went from feeling lost, overwhelmed and unsure of who I really was to discovering my passion for life again.

Marie-Anne is a wonderful listener, approachable, compassionate yet pushes you to not shy away from the tough topics. She created a space where I felt comfortable to be honest and open about the challenges I was facing. I felt supported every step of the way and would highly recommend  Marie-Anne as a coach. Even now in tough situations I reflect back on the work we did together and channel the warm, confident and positive outlook that she fostered in me. I cannot thank her enough for everything

Freya - Surrey - Uk

Marie-Anne has a genuine and honest nature whilst also being compassionate and supportive. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking for that guidance and structure needed to step back, find their feet and start to make that much-needed change.

After our six sessions, I am feeling a lot more positive about the future and confident that I will continue to utilize and benefit from the things I uncovered about myself, and the techniques to bring these to the surface :)

Sara - Manchester - UK

I came to Marie-Anne for coaching when I was overwhelmed with juggling my 9-5 whilst constantly feeling the need to please friends & family at the weekend – I got to the stage where I was burnt out and also felt my self-belief had got to point where it was really low and I was putting myself at the bottom of the pile.
Marie-Anne really helped me to change my mind-set by implementing key tasks to pick up as a daily routine and within just 6 weeks I could see my mind-set shifting to a much healthier, happier, and peaceful place. With improved self-belief, naturally, my confidence levels picked up, and since I’ve felt much happier in myself and my day to day.
I feel that Marie-Anne was so lovely and easy to open up to and I couldn’t recommend enough if there is an area in your life you feel you need to tackle or want to work on. '

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 prioritize 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.

Kirk  – London

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 visualize new ways of recognizing where I was being stopped in my own thought processes to achieve my goals as I tend to over-think and over-analyze 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.

Debbie - New Malden - UK

The pounds have crept up over the last few years and I knew I needed to do something about it. Marie-Anne's challenge was the motivation I needed! Her approach is more healthy living than fad diet, but not only did I lose weight but I have picked up many healthy eating habits along the way! Thanks Marie-Anne for your sound coaching, patience, good humor and encouragement throughout.

Martine - Surrey - UK

I took part in the 60 day challenge and the support I got from the coach and the rest of the group is fabulous. Gradually making small changes makes a BIG difference. I never knew that a simple thing like drinking more water could make you feel so much better and happier. I feel more confident, I have more energy and while I still have the occasional bit of chocolate or cake, I just don't crave sugary treats the way I used to. It's not a diet and you're not being told to cut out foods you like, it's about introducing more healthy habits....but if you want to know what it's all about, I would say do the 60 day challenge!

Gina - Surrey - UK

It was an amazing experience with brought my confidence back, I started to love my body again and had the courage to be in the front row in your Zumba class. I gave a good example and inspiration to my friends...thanks a lot

Patricia - Surrey - UK

This 60 day weight loss challenge gave me the impetus to start some radical yet simple changes to my diet and lifestyle. The good coaching from Marie Ann Francoise plus the mutual support and ideas from the other participants propelled me forward. Despite some unexpected life events I took my new tools and faced them head on. Not perfect but certainly aided by this programme. I will miss our camaraderie!
Now I’m enjoying walking (rain or shine); my weight has gone down 1 stone and I’m inspired to march on!
