What is Coaching?
Life Coaching is a fairly new, VERY exciting way to help you get more of what you want out of life.
Unlike therapy, coaching is less about how you got here and more about where you are going.
It's transformational. And fast.
Do you have a goal you'd like to reach? A change you'd like to make? Or are you looking for more fulfillment in areas of your life?
This is where coaching comes in.
There's a little story I heard that describes coaching in an interesting way, it goes like this:
Say you would like to learn how to ride a bike. You go to a therapist, a consultant and a coach for help.
The therapist has you approach the bike, asks you how you're feeling, then asks what kind of previous experiences you've had with bikes and how you felt then.
The consultant gets on the bike and rides it around for a while. Then they write a manual on how to ride the bike and hands it to you.
The coach says, "ok, you get on the bike and I'll stand beside as you learn to ride"
As your coach, I believe you already have the answers inside you. I'm here to help you explore that power you have inside that is just waiting to be unleashed.

Here's my personal story about coaching:
As a person who has always battled depression, I work on my happiness every day. I’ve been working on it for years.
My jewelry journey has been about finding my happy. When I first started creating my art, it confused me.
How were my pieces so delicate and pretty? Why did everyone call them “happy”?
I felt dark. Moody. Heavy. Ugly. Exploring this art form started my journey inwards to find the happy flower inside and free her.
She’s here. Free as she can be today. And every day I get to free her a little more. This is my life’s work. It will never stop. But man, it’s worth it.
A huge part of the work has been with my own life coach. Through coaching, I was able to connect to my big vision and make it tangible. Now I'm on the path to get there.
And this is a part of my journey. Coaching you. My mission is to spread joy. And I want to share the tools, knowledge, and empathy I've gained through my experiences, with you.
In the crazy up-heavle that was 2020, I made a big shift. In search of my bigger purpose, I closed my retail business of 5 years and enrolled in a professional coaching program at CTI Institute. This intense and rigorous training brought clarity to what I always suspected was my true calling: to help people find real and fulfilling happiness.
It has completely blown my mind to see what my clients have accomplished during our work together. From career changes, stronger, more empowered relationships to conquering their fears of putting themselves out there... my clients impress and amaze me every day.
I'm currently offering one-on-one coaching to help you find your joy and teach practices you can use to maintain it. You CAN live a happier more fulfilled life. You are more powerful than you think, so let's see what's in there. I can't wait to support you on your journey - it's going to be amazing.

Here's what a few of my clients have said about coaching with me:
"I hired Anne as a coach because I was looking for a career change, and didn't even know what I wanted to do for work. Since this coaching, I have discovered my true passion and I am actively pursuing it. I am so excited! I can't believe how it all has happened so fast!"
"I feel like I am more in control of my life now, and seeing the bigger picture instead of just what is right in front of me."
"Anne has such a peaceful, nurturing presence. Talking to her feels inviting and safe."
