What People Say

“Annette is a great listener who has opened my eyes to a whole new way of living, leading a more positive life. Having come to a standstill, with sleepless nights pondering 'what's the point?' and 'am I in the right career?' Questioning everything I do and if I'm 'good enough'. Annette has provided me with tools to understand myself better.  She has enabled me to order my jumbled mind and understand what makes me 'tick'. This has provided me with direction, clarity and fulfilment.  
I can now lead a calmer, purposeful life, having identified personal goals and understanding what really makes me happy. I feel empowered to move forward with my career and personal life.  The sessions have not only helped my mental health enormously, but the knock-on effect is that I am a better parent, wife and friend.  For the rest of my life, I have the ability to pause, reflect and grow.  
Wish I had these sessions years ago!

“I started my sessions with Annette, thinking that I did not need help. I just wanted someone to vent to (not my partner!). But, the past couple of months have helped me greatly. 
Without focusing on what had led me to work with Annette, we worked through how I had felt, how I currently felt, and how I wanted to feel about everything. It encouraged me to reflect on my life and allow time for me, something, I had not done previously. I always believed that just taking some time to myself was selfish, but now I have embedded it into my daily routine, I am able to deal with stressors and issues that would normally have me melting down.
Annette often sent additional materials for me to read and work through, tailored to my interests and what I could even use in my work. I always felt like Annette had my best interests at the forefront and managed to help me find different techniques that work for ME. 
For anyone thinking about working Annette, just do it. It has been the best investment in myself that I may ever do. I have a different outlook on everything and I feel so much happier and more confident in all areas of my life. 
Thank you, Annette.”

"Annette is a wonderful coach. Her expertise, patience, and empathic listening skills blow me away. She's 110% there with me when I share what's on my mind and in my heart. She's inspired me greatly to go after what I want. She has a unique way of reading between the lines and pointing out invisible links for my own benefit. I recommend working with Annette to anyone who needs help solving their problem/s. Big thank you!"
- Michaela
"Having someone listen to us with understanding, patience and kindness is invaluable! It helps us recognise our own strengths and weaknesses in a way that helps us improve our lives. Annette fits perfectly into this role. She is trustworthy, understanding, patient and kind. Annette listens not only to what we say, but the unspoken words too, and will put forward a suggestion or her interpretation from what we have said. Through this we can work through our agendas, issues and concerns in a more positive way. Having spoken with Annette myself, I feel I have certainly benefitted, and feel much happier and positive to deal with certain situations that had been troubling me. Thank you Annette."

I have found the couple of sessions I have had with Annettte to be invaluable in getting me started with my aspirations. Thank you Annette."

"What a lucky person am I to have found Annette when I needed coaching and guidance in my personal relations area of life. She helped me by getting me to shift my perspective, look at what I was doing and offer me options of how to proceed and get clear what I actually wanted and how to get there. The session had an immediate effect on my life and I see that my new relationships will be more equal and balanced and there will be the sense of just being able to be myself, what I love to understand now. I feel a new inspiration to keep making the choices that will empower my personal relationships. Annette with her warm, patient and ‘let's get some clarity’ approach put me at ease and that allowed me to find out more about the whys. Thanks Annette, super grateful for the session. You are an awesome empowering clear Coach."
- Stefania
"Annette has great empathy and is a lovely warm person. In just a few short weeks I finally believe I MATTER and that I love ME. I finally have inner peace after fighting with the demons left behind from my ex husband nearly 20 years ago. She has taught me to pick at situations and see them in a different way and to also accept that people's opinions of me are exactly that, just opinions and not fact. If you are searching for inner peace, Annette is definitely your lady. I thoroughly enjoy our sessions and will be sad when they're over."

"Would highly recommend Annette to anyone that is struggling to see themselves as worthwhile or who wants to move on and grow as a person. She is a very warm and caring lady that listens and then guides you. Being able to offer Zoom meetings was a big help, especially for people who find face to face meetings difficult."

"Annette is very patient, kind, honest and really listens to what you are saying. She picks up on what you say and asks you why, which allows you then to reflect. It also gives you time for you and to be you. I have no hesitation in recommending Annette."
