Thank you Anne,
I like many others have suffered from issues of limiting beliefs and lack of direction or purpose in life. These beliefs have held me back from making the progress in my life that I know I should be able to make but so far I haven’t been able to make that breakthrough on my own. I knew I needed help and sought after a life coach to help me create that breakthrough for myself.
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.
I chose Anne’s six session course to help me change my beliefs and increase the mental strength within myself. Within the sessions itself Anne thoroughly listened to all my issues, how my lifestyle was and what dreams and aspirations I had for myself. She then systematically worked with me to find the root cause of my issue by helping me recall times in my past that could be causing me issues here in the present. She introduced me to various tools and workshops that I could use in between the sessions to help me get a greater understanding of what it was that I was seeking and more importantly why I wanted it. We would then go through these workshops together in session and try to eliminate the problems that were found or discover new connections of why I wanted the dreams that I chased. I had several key breakthroughs within the course through Anne’s tools, which came on the third and fifth sessions, these opened up a lot of new positive beliefs for me in which Anne helped me to engrain within myself.
An impressive part of Anne’s coaching was that she was always available to me outside of the sessions even during weekends. This was great as sometimes thoughts that may not have come up during the sessions could be shared with Anne whenever they appeared and I would always get an almost instant response back from her.
Anne also has a great deal of life experience in a broad variety of areas in life and business, which is remarkable considering she is still relatively young. Using these life experiences she has helped me a great deal with my own life issues by describing very similar situations in her own personal life and how she managed to overcome them. This insight in her own life I felt increased my own connection and rapport with Anne and made me feel that I wasn’t just another client to Anne but someone she genuinely cared about and trusted, this in turn helped me to believe in her abilities much more strongly and thus I feel increased the rate of my change as well.
Overall I would have to say Anne has been a great coach and a caring friend to me over the past three months, she has helped me to gain a greater understanding within myself and engrain a much stronger mind-set. Even though I have now finished my course with Anne she is still in regular contact with me finding out how I am doing and providing me with more help and advice.
Ultimately I guess in the end what everyone wants from a life coach is improved results within their own life and I have certainly gained that within my life through Anne’s course. Therefore I would definitely recommend Anne’s coaching to anyone seeking to make similar breakthroughs and improvement for themselves.
