My confidence and self esteem were low
I found Anne-Marie through the life coach directory website and then did some further research on her own website. Anne’s website was modern, designed well and had lots of information about her services so it was easy to understand what services I needed and what results I should be aiming for. One thing I did note on the site was Anne had a great deal of qualifications relating to life coaching and surrounding fields, which made it clear that Anne was very passionate about the coaching and wellness services that she offers.
Anne has been the first life coach that I have ever had, so I was a bit nervous and not really sure what to expect from the session especially when our sessions were all in person. However it quickly became apparent that Anne had a really caring and calming aura around her and I was able to open up to her very quickly. Her personality itself is very bubbly and infectiously positive, I found her to be a great listener and to be very perceptive in conversations. Her office was always homely, warm and soothing so I always felt welcome and at ease in her presence, little touches like always having a glass of water for me was great at relaxing me as I felt more like her friend than her client.

After 1 session with Anne Marie I noticed a complete shift in my mind set which I didn’t really expect. Speaking openly about certain challenges we face in life both in our work life and personal life and hearing new perspectives and tactical approaches can bread a new sense of purpose and life into you. Working with Anne Marie brings insight and understanding of ourselves our friends colleagues family members etc and helps you take control of your destiny. A 5 star review from me and a permanent fixture to my weekly routine now.

I first went to see Anne Marie about 6 months ago. My confidence and self esteem were low, keeping eye contact for any length of time I found challenging and I’d fidget to distract myself. About three sessions later, I had learnt new skills which I could use to help my confidence when I needed to.I felt a lot better knowing I had built a support system for myself to help me deal with my anxiety rather than running away from it which had always seemed like the easiest thing to do. I kept food and mood diaries that I talked through with Anne Marie which helped me to understand the things I needed to work through. I am continuing this journey today and soon I will be on my last session. I have changed a lot since meeting Anne Marie and although I currently still face old challenges I’ve learnt skills that help me to deal with them more effectively than I have in the past. For me life coaching has been beneficial in the long term as well as short term. My confidence has improved greatly and I now want to go back into full time work which I haven’t felt able to do for 2 years. I’m proud of what I have achieved in the past few months and I’m thankful to Anne Marie for all her guidance and support.
I recently went to Anne Marie for some life coaching and EFT treatment to try to help with ongoing anxiety struggles and nightly panic attacks as a result of various difficult changes in my circumstances. Anne Marie talked me through some simple visualisation techniques which allowed me to focus on reducing negative thoughts. Following the session, I felt much calmer and have noticed small improvements in my sleeping pattern. It is early days and I have a lot of work to do, but I feel like I have tools which I can use to help me in my daily management of the anxiety. I’m confident that in time I will be able to reduce the anxiety further. Anne Marie’s encouraging and reassuring words also meant I left with a much more positive mindset. Thank you so much.
Hi Anne Marie I keep seeing other people’s testimonials and have put a lot of thought into mine but it still doesn’t seem to do you justice. Anyway, here it is:
When I first came to see you a few months ago, I came with a long list (literally) of different problems which were effecting me. I have never had any counselling or life coaching before so I had no idea what to expect. Straight away you identified that all these problems were linked, when to me they seemed so far apart. These ranged from a severe and overwhelming health anxiety (due to the loss of all my family members) to problems in my very demanding career. Through long chats and various techniques you taught me, I then gained the confidence to make big decisions about my future.
During the course of our sessions, I gained the confidence to seek alternative employment outside the role I have been doing for the last 10 years and consequently I was offered a Director position with a large corporate company. In direct response to my resignation with my current employer, I then secured a substantial promotion where, with your help and guidance, I was able to then negotiate better working conditions and a better work/life balance. Throughout this big rollercoaster I went on, I always looked forward to our sessions which made me feel like I had an anchor and that I wasn’t going through this alone. Having gone from someone who is scared to go to sleep at night, to the most senior person in a large multi-million pound company, in such a short space of time is such an achievement and one which I know my parents would have been proud of me for – if only they were here to see it.
I have gone from working 80 hour weeks with numerous nights a week away from home, to being in my own bed every night and working 9-5 with the same productivity! I now feel very happy and content in my career and I have the time outside of work to do the things I enjoy. I feel like a better person and I am finally living and enjoying my life, having let go of the past.
I know you say it is all down to me but I know I could never have achieved any of this without your help and guidance. I just wish I had found you sooner.

Before I started working with Anne-Marie I had just lost my job and had no clear view of what my future held. Even after just one session, I could see where I was heading and I had the view to a better me.
Anne-Marie helped me get through a lot of self-doubt issues and now I am on my way to doing my dream job.
I would definitely say she is one of the best in the business.
After putting off going to get ‘help’ (like it was a negative thing) I finally reached out to Anne-Marie and my god I am glad I did! Having treatments like this shouldn’t be a big decision as once I got to see her it felt completely normal. Maintaining your wellbeing should be as normal as maintaining your hair or nails, your brain is far more important. Anne-Marie doesn’t just listen she provides facts and reasons why my feelings and behaviours where they way they were which resulted in a quick and effective resolution. In fact I felt like a completely different person after just one session! Anne-Marie is not just qualified educationally but she has the ability to spirituality heal you from the inside. I would recommend anyone to see her. Working with Anne-Marie helped me change my life, I now live abroad and I am so happy I can’t thank you enough.
As a busy working mum with virtually no time to myself, doing 10 things at once and none particularly effectively, it was no wonder I started to feel stressed, deflated, demotivated a with life. A friend recommended I visit Anne Marie for Reiki therapy. Open to anything that may help destress me, but with the voices of cynical family ringing in my ears, I went along and was blown away by Anne Mari’s skills, her professionalism, her compassion and understanding. The Reiki left me feeling centred, refocused and reenergised – and in a strange way reassured that despite how I was feeling, there was somebody who understood and could help. I would thoroughly recommend Anne Marie to anyone thinking of Reiki.
Joining a coaching course with Anne Marie was a huge step for me. I’d tried all the recommended self help and positivity books, yoga, exercise, meditation but I just couldn’t shift that sticky negativity right in my stomach.
By just 22 I had somehow landed my dream job, in my dream role and I found myself working with a team of people who were much older than me with their ‘life together’. I soon found myself struggling keep up. Trying to balance my new career and new house with a social life and a new relationship – everything got on top of me. The areas affected most were my relationship and my motivation and enthusiasm for the job (that I’d always wanted and should have been loving!). I also knew I had issues that I had never addressed from my past that were holding me back and areas of my childhood that I hadn’t shared with anyone. From our first phone call I knew Anne-Marie would be able to guide me into a better way of thinking. I literally just wanted to enjoy my life more. To be happy and content with all that I had.. which was a lot for someone of my age. My biggest issue was that I didn’t know who I was, which meant I believed everyone else’s opinions of me. I was too loud, too quiet. A pushover, confrontational.. and it became exhausting trying to change for other people.
In just 3 months she has turned me from a negative, self critical and anxious girl into a confident young woman. The journey isn’t over and I still have moments where I feel out of tune .. but they last for less time and I can now recognise and put a stop to my limiting beliefs before they stick. Plus, Anne-Marie is still there for me if I’m having a ‘moment’.
The biggest change is that I actually like me now. I’m wake up feeling grateful for all that I have and I’m enjoying a healthy, loving relationship where I can allow myself to give and receive love.
In work, my sales figures continue to grow and I feel very proud of my success.
If you are wondering whether to start sessions with Anne-Marie or not, I say DO IT! The sessions are the best gift I’ve ever bought myself.
