1:1 NLP & Coaching for Self-Development & Empowerment | Confidence Building, Communicating Skills & Professional Growth | Workplace Training | Habit Change

Would you like help to feel more confident in yourself and get going towards your dreams and ambitions?

How would it feel to walk into social events and workplace meetings knowing you have a system in place to help you take part confidently, get your message across clearly and enjoy it?! 

I'm on a mission to share all the knowledge and experiences I've gained over the past 30 years as a successful manager and leader in the Construction Sector - enhanced by my qualifications and experience as an accredited NLP Business Coach and Certified DISC Profiler specialising in confidence building and communicating effectively. 

Whether you're a Manager, Professional or Business Owner, my EmpowerWELL Coaching Programmes will enhance your skills. Stop feeling held back, lacking in motivation and start leading and inspiring your teams with less misunderstandings. Become confident to speak up and build success in your projects, career and business without putting stress on yourself and those around you.

Everyone is different.

For Personal Coaching we'll design your programme together to specifically address your needs. Some of the things we may do include:

•    Developing Your Communicating Skills -  so you can get connecting with your Clients, Colleagues and Teams effectively and deeply. More harmony and less misunderstandings! 

•    Overcoming Imposter Syndrome – get rid of unhelpful beliefs and that inner gremlin that whispers "I'm not good enough..." , and instead growing your self-esteem and personal successes.

•    Developing Your Personal Motivating Stratagies - freeing yourself from going round in circles, taking actions that align with what you believe in and actually want to achieve.

•    Setting & Achieving Goals for yourself and others - motivating and inspiring yourself and your team, measuring your successes.

•    Emotional Intelligence and Empathy for Managers and Leaders - becoming aware of yourself and others, ways you can keep a positive mindset and resilience when it's tough.

•    Mastering Time Management & Maintaining Focus - becoming more effective at work and home, delegating skills, unlocking more time to spend on yourself

•    Wellbeing Focus -  setting healthy boundaries, dealing with stress and reducing anxiety and overwhelm, looking after your health and creating more fun and adventures.

I'll be working with you 1:1, generally through a 6 month or bespoke package specifically designed for your needs. I'm passionate about NLP and naturally blending it with Coaching gives you faster results than having coaching alone.

DISC Profiling is also available as a one off report with a 45 min 1 to 1 session for just £97 - a great starting point.

For Workplace Training, the above topics can be carried out as in-person or online group workshops. Please message me for more details.

P.S. NLP Sessions are usually carried out as part of my packages however for some issues, fewer sessions may be suitable depending on your issue (e.g. phobia cures, stuck beliefs about yourself, constant indecisions). I'm always happy to chat through your needs.

Torbay Trust - Leadership Enhancement and Development Project

"Anne delivered Social Styles and Presentation Skills on the Leadership Enhancement and Development Project; run in Partnership with Torbay NHS Trust. She delivered meaningful and inspirational content, with impact. I would highly recommend her services."

NLP Business Coaching

Anne’s coaching sessions played a crucial role in helping me identify and form my leadership objectives and were pivotal in providing me with a roadmap to achieve them. I can now articulate my ideas more effectively and am building stronger relationships with my colleagues.
In a fast paced business environment it’s easy to overlook the importance of personal health and with Anne’s guidance I have created a more resilient and focused approach to leadership, ensuring I can navigate future challenges with a clear mind and sustainable energy.

I can highly recommend Anne and her NLP Business Coaching to anyone seeking to refine their
communication skills, elevate their leadership goals, and establish a foundation for sustained
success in both their career and personal journey.

Anne Gilkes Review

Anne is a fantastic coach. Anne provides a comfortable space to openly discuss issues and makes you feel supported throughout each of the sessions, she has a lot of industry experience which I think allows her to offer excellent coaching. I feel much more positive since my sessions with Anne and far better equipped to deal with day to day work life & situations.


NLP with Anne was quite an empowering journey for me

Anne is focused, resourceful and intuitive NLP coach, and I am grateful I have met her. Her sessions have helped me immeasurably altering old limiting beliefs which were preventing me from embracing my true self. Working under her guidance, I managed to challenge opposing concepts and perceptions and, as a result, to adopt more balanced, harmonic and fulfilling attitude towards problematic areas in my life.

I am sure that her coaching style, the exercises she incorporates in her NLP sessions, her genuine desire to listen, understand, support and help will have positive impact onto anybody willing to go on self-discovery journey by unlocking their true self 's potential. It has been quite a rewarding and fulfilling journey for me.

I recently had an NLP session with Anne Gilkes to help me overcome an instance of bullying in the work place which happened over 10 years ago but was still upsetting my confidence. I have been amazed at the results! I have been able to distance myself from the events and I have stopped re-living it as it no longer feels important.
Anne has a natural calmness in her voice which instantly makes you feel relaxed and combined with her obvious knowledge of NLP I would recommend her whole heartedly.

I have not yet reviewed any books.
