Coaching Offer

I help you to deepen your self-knowledge, practise acceptance, overcome exhaustion and burnout, and to develop your courage to act.

Process and Pricing

I offer weekly, bi-weekly and fortnightly 1-hour coaching sessions via Zoom.

Individual Sessions

My sessions cost £100, £150 or £200 per hour. I ask you to choose the rate you are able and happy to pay. Those who can pay more sponsor those who pay less. I also offer lower bursary fees to those of you who are dedicated to social change and who cannot afford the full fees.

I recommend a minimum of 5 sessions.

Writing Coaching

I also offer a mixture of writing coaching and editorial advice for writers. Fees on request.

Who do I work with?

I work with clients from all walks of life, ranging from agents of change who want to make the world a better place to high-powered CEOs, leaders of teams and organizations and to fellow writers, researchers and creatives. I feel particular kinship with seekers of deeper self-knowledge, highly rational people, the overly humble and introverts who struggle with unproductive core-beliefs and negative self-talk.

Free 20-Minute Exploration Call

I offer free 20-minutes exploration calls so that we can find out together if I am the right person to help you.

“I’ve only had 3 sessions with Anna and I can confidently say that the personal and professional growth I’ve experienced have had an impact on my life. The best way to describe it:  It feels to me like steering a big ship, where making a 1 degree change (small changes in perspective, choices or just becoming aware of the “inner critic”) will make a massive change in where my new destination will be in the long run.”

“Having engaged other coaches over the course of my career, I was delighted to be introduced to Anna whose masterful facilitation is nothing short of revelatory. Through patient and diligent probing, Anna was able to ‘unlock’ in me several ‘hurdles’ with which I had unconsciously been grappling. Her careful steering of conversations during our fortnightly sessions enabled me to bring a significant amount of clarity and coherence to my professional trajectory and environment. I would recommend Anna’s coaching and methodology to anyone.”


                                                                     Senior Manager, Deloitte 

"I really enjoyed my sessions with Anna. She is a wonderful coach and human being - kind, considerate and gentle. Anna and I had some very deep conversations on a number of topics. She helped keep me grounded, remember the aim of my journey and guided me softly through it. I've left with a sense of calmness but also determination to carry on with this journey. I'll always remember my sessions with Anna with fondness and take her words with me as a further guide." 

Global Planning Executive, GlaxoSmithKline

"Anna’s coaching sessions helped me identify challenges within and beyond my control. It provided an opportunity to think through coping mechanisms I’ve tried, failed, excelled at, and my role in each scenario. I was able to recognise existing internal resources and develop new ones to sustain a high level of resilience in my environment. I found reason to be optimistic at the bleakest experiences and embrace change however big or sudden. I have come out the other side understanding that my environment (people inclusive) may not change but I can focus on what should, my perspectives, decisions and response. I consider this a valuable outcome for the workplace and life in general."

HR Manager


"I had 4 sessions with Anna during which she helped me identify strengths that were, at first, not obvious to me. Her calm and clear approach helped me move past my inner critic and see things about my work (and personal) history that left me feeling much more accomplished than when we started. With Anna's guidance, I was able to develop more agency in asking for what I needed at work and also in setting healthy boundaries between work/life. Anna is a wonderful, heart-full coach and I strongly recommend her, especially to anyone struggling with burnout in the cultural change/activism sphere."

                                                            Philosopher and Social Change Activist

"Working with Anna has been an extremely positive and potentially life changing experience for me. I came to Anna as I had been struggling with chronic fatigue, depression and low self-esteem which had all become quite toxic and debilitating. My 'inner critic' was also running riot and having a severe impact on my creative practice and other aspects of my life. Anna has done an amazing job in helping me to identify and understand the underlying issues so that I can find practical ways to cope better and bring about far more positive outcomes. I'm now far better at spotting the difficulties and finding ways to deal with them, even if that simply means accepting them and focusing energies in a different way. Anna has enabled me to manage my 'inner critic' in far better and constructive ways and this has been a significant step for me, particularly in relation to me creative practice. This has far exceeded my expectations and I can't thank Anna enough for her remarkable work in helping me to reach this point."
