Anna works with women who are in a leadership capacity to find clarity in their lives.
We all have barriers that we feel in our work or home life that can cause blockages in our daily lives, activities and thoughts. As a leader this could be anything from working with difficult staff or parents to developing your strategic planning. It could even be the difficulty of balancing home and work life. Working together Anna supports clients in identifying those barriers and finding ways together to support you to overcome them.
Anna has over 28 years in education with the past 17 in a leadership capacity. She understands the demands placed on leaders, particularly within schools, and is dedicated in supporting individuals to be the best they can be. She has led schools in challenging situations and has also supported a variety of clients both in and out of the school setting to find clarity in their role, their decisions and their future.

'Before I started my coaching with Anna I was frustrated, and I felt like I was drowning with no clear direction of where I was going.
Anna helped me, help myself, to recognise why I was feeling the way I was, and enabled the fog to clear to see the direction I wanted to head. The tools and exercises we used were not time consuming or a chore, they were instrumental in me being able to recognise my areas of strength and the areas I needed to improve. The whole process has strengthened me as a woman and a human being.' - JW client
