I wanted to write to you today to thank you so much for your coaching sessions so far and to acknowledge the enormous impact that they have had on my emotional well-being.
More recently, we have been working together to explore the limiting beliefs that I have around my goal in much greater depth.
Your extremely intuitive questioning and non-judgemental approach have helped me to begin to challenge certain ingrained thought patterns that can often lead to self-sabotaging behaviour, often frustratingly taking me further from my goal.
As a result of these more in-depth sessions, I am already experiencing greater clarity in my thought processes and have been able to acknowledge and question any limiting beliefs as they arise. I feel that my day-to-day life and relationships are benefiting a great deal from this.
I sought out coaching because I was stuck in a post-motherhood career rut and was struggling to get past an ever revolving list of things that "needed to be done" before I could make a decision and start doing something. I had done coaching before and knew that having the space and time to think only about myself is a really useful and valuable thing, and having someone without any personal investment in my decisions to support me and hold me to account is high on essential. Coaching has reminded me that "the answers" are within me, I just need a little help to listen to myself when the subject is me.
Right from the first session Anne-Mette guided me to pin down where I see myself in my ideal future and what I can do to get myself there. She encouraged me to take the leap and get back into the workshop to test my skills and re-establish my confidence that I can do it. She challenged me to have potentially uncomfortable conversations, and to have confidence in myself and my position whilst having them.
Within a couple of months I am back doing something that brings me real pleasure, with the confidence to dedicate myself to making it work as a career. . More than 4 years into motherhood this feels like a ridiculously quick breakthrough !
My coaching sessions with Anne-Mette really helped me re-establish what I want to achieve in life, step by step: what this means for me in 10 years, 5 years, by the time I leave university in one year, and what that means for me this coming week and the next. She really made me question a lot of things about myself and my outlook and desires, dig deep and pull answers out of me I didn’t know I had.
In addition to getting me thinking more than ever before and really helping me to find out more about myself, Anne-Mette also worked with me to devise practical solutions/ways forward to better myself in every time frame, sometimes working backwards from larger, longer term goals but also helping me practically with the week ahead, and next steps. After my last coaching session, I felt motivated, re-energised, confident and extremely positive about myself, my ambitions, my productivity and just my overall general well-being and outlook. I would highly recommend Anne-Mette and life coaching sessions to anyone looking to improve themselves in any way.
I recently had an introductory coaching session with Anne-Mette. She has a gently encouraging coaching style which allowed me to relax and engage with the process. During the session, I was able to think more clearly about my options and see them in different ways. Anne-Mette helped me to devise a follow-up exercise, which I have been practising daily, that has really helped me to think more positively. The session itself helped me to make decisions about lifestyle and career questions that I have been wrestling with for some time. I would recommend her to anyone else who is struggling with a difficult decision or needs to build confidence.
Since having Anne-Mette I have seen a tremendous change in the way i approach certain, ventures. I feel so much more clearly about my thoughts on what i want to do with myself and who I want to be, but even more importantly I know why I am doing the things I am. I have been able to take massive action due to the coaching session we have and through the bi-weekly updates, I have been able to stay on task and accomplished the things that I have set out to do. I have gained so much clarity about the sort of person that I want to be. My organisation skill has massively improved, as well as my time management. On top of this, I felt like I was cared for and wasn’t judged regardless of what I said which is something that is truly a nice experience. Through the 4 sessions, I feel like I am now on the right path and have a clear direction that I can follow to reach my goals!
