Coaching approach

Coaching should be a confidential one-to-one discussion, coachee led but held to account by the coach. It should help coachees clarify their goals and intentions, understand themselves better (for example their values), identify blockages/challenges and develop practical steps to move forward.

What to expect

Coachees are expected to be honest and open, engage with the process and commit to take action. There will be reflections and/or assignments between sessions. 


Anna has worked with coaching clients on a range of management, personal and career challenges, including prioritisation and planning, managing team performance, difficult relationships, work life balance, realising career ambitions, and having confidence and success in new roles.
