Through confidential, supportive, non-judgemental coaching I will help you overcome your barriers and achieve a happier life. I deliver coaching sessions using zoom to enable me to be accessible to you from your home or where you feel most comfortable, either during the day or some evenings.
Why use me? I am a member of the Sue Stone Foundation and an IIC&M accredited coach.
The stress epidemic. Whilst short bursts of stress can enhance our performance the effect longer term can be harmful. Prolonged periods of stress can affect every aspect of our lives including; sleep, weight, mood and even suppress the immune system and lead to loss of confidence. In fact the World Health Organisation has called stress the 21st century epidemic. A major survey by the Mental Health Foundation shows that 74% of us have been so stressed in the past year we have felt overwhelmed or unable to cope. Yet we “fight” on to get through accepting stress as normal. It doesn’t have to be.
If you want to reduce your stress levels and rebuild your self-confidence I can help by teaching you to react and think differently.
Anne Skinner Life Coach- The Person
Following a second diagnosis of breast cancer in five years, the penny dropped. I was making myself ill. Or at least allowing stress to compromise my immune system to the point it had little defence. With a busy job, two children, husband and home there was lots going on and I was overwhelmed by it all. More than once I announced that I just needed the world to stop turning so that I could catch up. Well I got exactly what I asked for, a break from the pressure of my job and everything else in my life.
During my treatment and subsequent recovery I started to pay close attention to my thoughts and feelings. I recognised the signs of stress building and addressed them immediately. My thoughts and the emotion attached to them were focused on what I was grateful for, what I wanted rather than fear of getting what I did not want.
Having applied the techniques I now use in my coaching, I am calmer than ever aiming to live each day to its fullest. I love life!
