Coach, trainer, and mindfulness teacher helping people to feel lighter, more creative, and optimistic

I began my journey with NLP in 2011 and then followed my passion for life-long learning by becoming a full-time independent coach and NLP trainer. Most recently I travelled to India to train with Sue Knight, which expanded my horizons beyond all imagination. 

Since my career began at the age of 18 I have naturally been drawn to spot potential and encourage people to believe in themselves. After several examples of colleagues and friends coming back to me years later recalling a significant moment when my encouragement had a lasting impact on them, I decided it was time to do something about it and signed up for NLP Practitioner training. I'm fascinated by how people think, feel and behave, and how they respond to events that happen in life. NLP was the ideal methodology which also supports a way of being which is in line with my beliefs and values. Later adding Clean Language, a Meditation Teacher Diploma, and EFT (Tapping) to my repertoire has meant I can support a diverse range of needs. I also work with creativity as a reflective practice through workshops and one-to-one activities including writing, making, and drawing.

The most common feedback I hear from clients is that they feel 'lighter', physically and emotionally. It's an incredible privilege to see them light up when they realise they have what they need to be successful, re-connecting with belief and hope for the future, especially in the times we are living in right now. 

NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner programme information is updated regularly at along with regular events, blogs, and workshops. I'm delighted to be delivering NLP programmes with Carolyn Murray, who is an excellent coach and trainer and has a wide variety of experience in senior HR and OD roles. And we have a lot of fun and laughter on our programmes as well as great learning!

In my book 'Roots for Growth', I share openly about deeply personal experiences as a carer since the age of 23, when my life was turned upside down. The key themes of the book are resilience, mindful living, and growing through change. This experience of writing has helped me to take the next steps on the journey to becoming an author, and I'm already jotting down ideas for the next book! Launch date is February 2021 and you can find out more about it and access free resources at

A review by Sarah Azi

“Anna and I clicked from the very first chat we had. She has a warm and friendly manner which makes you feel you can discuss any and all challenges you face at work without any judgment. Over the six months, Anna's tailored our monthly chats to my individual needs. She's helped me come up with my own solutions to problems through her careful questioning, occasional role play and using examples from her own professional experience.
Anna's insight and ability to help me come up with different techniques to approach challenges have been invaluable to me. I feel Anna has helped me become a better colleague and manager. I would highly recommend Anna.”

A review by Alan Bell

“Coaching with Anna ended up being something totally different from where I started but far more worthwhile! Anna is really good at finding the things that make people tick and helping them see them too. Understanding this has really allowed me to focus on what I want to do next and has given me the confidence to know it is the right move for me, and to use that knowledge to work better and achieve more.

Having someone totally separate from my day to day role made a huge difference. Anna listened to my opinion and views on things completely impartially and as a result found the things I am really passionate about.

Anyone looking to find a path/direction would benefit from spending time with Anna. If I undertake anything similar in the future, I hope the person I work with is as good as her!”
