“Now that I’ve experienced coaching with Anna, I’ve become much more grounded and confident in my decisions.”

What was life like before you started with coaching with Anna

Before I started coaching with Anna, I struggled with other people’s expectations towards me and their feelings regarding my decisions. As I was about to emigrate across the world, far away from family and loved-ones, this was something that occupied my mind on a daily basis. I knew I wanted to follow my own path regardless, but wasn’t quite sure how to put it in perspective. Other than that, I also realized that I let fear of what other people thought me hold me back in some ways.

What is life like now that you’ve experienced coaching with Anna?

Now that I’ve experienced coaching with Anna, I’ve become much more grounded and confident in my decisions. My biggest revelation during our coaching sessions, has been that it is okay if not everyone likes me, and that it’s okay if not everyone likes or understands my decisions. It sounds simple, but it wasn’t simple for me, and Anna’s skillful and deliberate questions helped me to come to this realization. It has brought a sense of calm and understanding that has been very helpful to stay true to myself ever since. I’m much more at peace and less focused on constantly pleasing others.

What surprised you the most or made you the happiest about coaching with Anna?

What surprised me the most, is that Anna didn’t come up with solutions, but used her questions to make me visualize and verbalize how I could improve or handle any of the situations/issues we discussed. This was very empowering; through doing this she made me aware that I already knew on some level what I needed, I just had to be led there.

Why would you recommend this to someone who might be on the fence?

To anyone on the fence about coaching; don’t be! With Anna, it’s like you’re thinking out loud, with someone who truly has your very best interest at heart listening to you, leading and guiding you to your own ideal, desired outcomes. You’ll have 100% of Anna’s attention and through her questions and observations, you will identify and then obliterate obstacles you didn’t even knew you were putting in your own way.
