I transform people's lives! I help people redesign their thinking and makeover their mindset, with effective and reusable strategies, in order to transform their life!

Change Coaching + Facilitation

Change is a constant and we do like change when we can choose it - what we don't seem to like is being changed/forced to change by someone/something else. In those times, and in times of constant change, I help people to cope with, manage and embrace change

common questions

Coaching is a very personal, relaxed, safe, collaborative and wonderful approach to talking about and solving problems.


Coaching is more than a ‘get it off my chest’ talk-fest. That’s fine too, but the word coaching implies that you want some help to fix the problem.


Coaching is very different to therapy, as therapy can focus purely on reflective self-healing, whereas coaching is more postitive, active and at times energetic, and allows for insight to be shown to the person on specifically what needs to change, and how to do it.


Coaching is interactive, and requires the person to try out new ideas, make adjustments, implement and take action in their lives in order to see a change, make an improvement, or enhance a situation.


Anne’s expectation is that the person coming to coaching is prepared to honestly talk about the issues, and also to listen to actually change and make things better. 


Coaching is a very individual thing, and everyone is different. Some feel that they want only one session for a little boost, and others feel that they want/need more, with more sessions closer together.  


There are no rules about time in between sessions, however it is important to give yourself time to take the action steps outlined so that you are gaining maximum potential benefit from each session

Each session is one hour long, and you can book sessions in:


  • 1 hour
  • 2 hour and
  • 3 hour blocks/workshops

Coaching is about what is worrying you and how we get you back on track, therefore what we discuss is private and confidential, as long as why you are here is not the consequence of laws being broken or any illegal activity that you have been directly/indirectly involved in. That would not remain confidential and would be reported to law enforcement.


Where your organisation arranges you to come for coaching, then feedback in general terms is given in line with recognition of their payment of your sessions.



Email or phone Anne to briefly discuss your situation – she will then make suggestions about what coaching session you would benefit from, and make suggestions as to dates/times available and outline the payment required.


Anne will then send you a confirmation email with this information, along with how to pay, you then pay for the session at least 48 hours prior so she can prepare, and then you arrive at her home office on the designated time/date, or log in virtually at that time.

Workshops can involve having other people join in if they are available at that time, or they can be run just for you


So if you see something you want to do, you don’t have to wait for others!

All coaching starts at AUD$350 per hour, and will vary according to the type of coaching you are receiving.


All bookings are made in: 

  • 1 hour
  • 2 hour and
  • 3 hour blocks
  • 3 hour workshops are costed separately

Anne’s home office is located in Fletcher, Newcastle and address details will be provided upon confirmation of appointment

Coaching provides you with an opportunity to talk about your situation and what is worrying and upsetting you. 


It is important to be able to talk about your situation and feelings with honesty – the good and the bad – Anne is not there to judge, but to understand and help you fix whatever is wrong.


You may not know what your feelings actually are when you first come to coaching – you might feel a bit all over the place and you just feel like you need to get everything out – that’s fine because that is what Anne is there to help you discover.


It might help you to bring a notepad (or however you take notes) for your own benefit – Anne takes notes of some key points of the session and emails them to you after the session – it’s like a to do list of what next.


It is important to come to coaching with willingness to fix the problem – talking about the problem is one thing, but coaching implies that you want help to fix it.

Yes of course!


The most important thing for Anne is that she is able to help you wherever she can.


Have a chat to her about what you’re thinking and may need help with, and she will make the recommendations about what would suit you best.



Premium Packages of Workshops + Coaching can involve having other people join in the Workshop if the timing suits them, or they can just be for you.


As the coaching is 1:1, it is specifically tailored to suit you, so if you see something you want to do, you don’t have to wait for others to be available!
