As humans, we have a personality that is reflected by our emotions, thoughts and behaviours.
Occassionally, those emotions, thoughts or behaviours may strike us as needing some greater management in order to thrive. It's natural - I have been there. But, I have also invested in surviving to succeed.
You may have a burning issue, ambition to reach your goals, desire to develop your talents or to stop the bad habits that you know are holding you back. Perhaps you sense burnout, or colleagues are not cooperating, or is it that heightened worries that are not serving you well?
Whatever has left you searching for more, the time for action is now.
By taking action, you are taking control of reaching what you need or want right now.
If you are ready for that change and are tired of trying to do it alone, coaching can provide the platform to help you. It's the catalyt to the change or growth you seek. Clarity will help you to thrive and, working with me, you will implement new ideas, thoughts and actions from our very first meeting.
If you are interested in who I am, read on.
Who am I? I’m Anita, an ex-lawyer, ex-recruiter and refugee from the corporate world. In 2007, I had a traumatic experience that threatened my life and left me having to regain stamina, strength and resilience over the course of about 4 years. I'd also experienced high stress in my corporate career but, even more stressful was a lung cancer scare in 2015. The mental and emotional drain was like nothing I had experienced before. But, and here is the key thing, I was already building my toolbox of tools and techniques that would see me through to come out even stronger. Resilience was a part of me and has continued to grow ever since.
Life moves on for us all and it is relevant to be realistic about this. I live with a medical condition - it is invisible but it impacts life. However, my mental strength, is what sees me through without surgery or prescribed medication. My resilient yet realistic mind-set is my strength. I am grateful for what I do have.
This is just a small insight into who I am and why I do what I do.
I have been there - where you are. Wanting more, wanting a change.
Wanting to be in control of where I am headed. Confident. Strong. Resilient. Motivated. Happy.
Through coaching, I am now able to be your catalyst for the change you want. My promise to you is that I am wholeheartedly committed to your success with coaching. Integrity, trust and passion are important to me and I believe they are to you too.
I'm technically a trainer and a coach (ICF Accredited which means I have studied rigorously and undertaken ongoing assessments and supervision; it also means I follow high standards of professional conduct and ethics) - what I actually do is to empower you to develop your inner potential to gain clarity, withstand obstacles, unearth the very best of yourself and achieve your goals. I'm blessed that those who work with me recommend others and even have their own "top up" sessions.
You can explore if working with me is your next step with a complimentary consultation - I look forward to it.
Do you sense this could be for someone you know, or even of benefit to people in the workplace? No problem, I can help.
How I work with my clients
When I met up with Jane, she appeared outgoing, friendly and successful. She joked about the thousands of self help books she’d read, the countless goals she’d set and failed to achieve and the frustration of ending up in the same unhappy place despite everything she tried to do differently.
Jane and I started by unravelling some of her hidden fears, talking down her negative internal voice and moving on to put positive goals in place. We worked on developing her outlook so she was able to see the great opportunities that surrounded her and the confidence to go for it. Most importantly she started coaching herself, needing me less and less till she quickly moved on.
Andy was delighted with his promotion. However it led to his inner critic creeping in, notwithstanding his talent for the job, he began to question himself and how to ensure he can manage confidence hits and challenges in future.
We unearthed inner tensions that Andy thought didn't exist and worked on his mindset and sustainability towards work and home changes, curbing his tendency to self criticise rather than self approve. He built up his confidence and pursued his role with passion and vigour - and a clearer mindset.
