Why do you need a coach?

"Whenever I am asked what is the missing link between a promising businessperson and a successful one, mentoring comes to mind" (Richard Branson)

Life Coaching and Mentoring is an investment in your most precious resource, you.

  • Gain clarity about what you want, why you want it and how you can get it
  • Improve all aspects of your life for general wellbeing
  • Focus on developing the positives, whilst eliminating the negatives. Live the life YOU choose.

 

  • Change the direction of your career or improve it
  • Create more choices for yourself
  • Redefine your values and passion in life

 

  • Boost your self-esteem to make you want to stand out
  • Aim to provide you with structure, to help you realise the full potential of your business/ career and take it to the next level:
      • Identify your blind spots
      • Develop powerful leadership skills
      • Push yourself outside of your comfort zone

 

  • Why wait until January to change something in your life? Take the plunge to be proud of whom you are. I’ll show you just how simple it is – that said, it will not be easy, and that’s where I come in to play.

WHAT IS COACHING & MENTORING?

 

It’s important that I explain the difference between Counselling, Coaching and Mentoring so that you can decide which support is right for you. All three are carried out in total confidence and in a safe environment. I am not a Counsellor. I am a Coach and a Mentor.

Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows an individual to talk in confidence, in a secure environment about any negative thoughts and feelings they may have.

Coaching is a journey into the future, from where you are to where you want to be, facilitated by the setting of practical goals. It adopts a solutions-focused approach to help the individual develop effective ways to manage themselves in their personal and business life.

Mentoring motivates an individual by sharing personal experience, wisdom, skills and knowledge. As a Mentor, I focus on personal and career development.

About me and my approach

“Start by doing the necessary, then do what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible” - Francis of Assisi

I am the person I am today because somebody decided to mentor me. Becoming a mentor has never been about saving the world – it has always been about inspiring others to reach their full potential.

For this reason I feel very privileged to be a Progression Mentor for the Princes Trust – a world renowned youth charity which provides one-to-one guidance and encouragement to young people, making a real difference in their lives.

I love coaching and mentoring. I love every single session, every single client. Seeing how we can work together to build self confidence around distinct areas of their lives is truly fulfilling.

Ed Fitzgerald

'She has given me the confidence & a rediscovered drive'

Ania is a bubbly and engaging individual who has greatly helped me through a complicated career/life change. Throughout Ania has been unwaveringly supportive while helping me to find my own direction through thoughtful analysis even into areas that I would have never considered without her input.

'There is light in my life and I am back on track'

Ania helped me to attribute a level of importance to each area going forward. This highlighted where my priorities had shifted somewhat and it was clear to see from the process that I had learned much about where I “was at” at our first session and that I had moved on considerably throughout the previous three weeks.

'Ania’s encouraging, no-nonsense, goal orientated approach is superb'

I had done some work on my goals but the session with Ania provided some more clarity on them and helped me gain greater focus. Ania strikes the perfect balance between being enthusiastic and encouraging whilst at the same time being challenging. Crucially, she sets action points with me that need to be achieved within definite time frames.

'A very fulfilling coaching session'

Ania has a warm, welcoming manner and it was very easy talking to her. I am very clear about my business goals, however, she gently pushed me in a direction to work out my personal goals and made sure I put actions with time scales against them. She took me out of my comfort zone to make me look at and acknowledge my positive attributes. Overall, I have come away with clear goals, targets, action plans for the year. A very fulfilling coaching session.

'I can honestly say I now feel optimistic about the future'

For the past 6 months I have been coached by Ania and I can’t say enough about how helpful these sessions have been for my personal development. Ania genuinely cares about helping you to find a direction in life and our sessions have vastly improved my confidence and sense of purpose. Through weekly coaching sessions, we have been able to establish a clear set of long-term goals and devise strategies over how to achieve them.

'Ania’s caring soft nature makes you feel at ease'

Ania shows passion and drive in every thing she applies her self to and is more then happy to share this quality with others to help them. She asks you to look at different area’s in your life and helps you evaluate each one. I’m somebody whose ideas change all the time and wish for lots of paths. Ania has helped me prioritise and focus to help work my way through my ideas and thought processes.

'Ania's involvement has transformed his self esteem'

When I heard what Ania was doing I jumped at the opportunity as I saw my son needed someone independent to his parents, particularly as his purpose in life as a top sportsman had just ended in injury. Coming from a high achieving family he may have been struggling with his failure in a way his parents couldn’t see. Ania’s involvement has transformed his self esteem and rescued him from a feeling of failure. This has enabled him to transition to starting a new career and believing in what he can do.

'She is totally committed to helping me succeed'

 Ania’s coaching has helped me to focus on what is really important to me at this time in my life and why I want to achieve the goals I have set myself. Her questions have allowed me to evaluate and prioritise my actions into an achievable task list. She is totally committed to helping me succeed. Thank you for making the sessions challenging and interesting and helping me to feel my goal is getting closer.
