Get to where you want to be
If you could click your fingers and create change in your life or work, what would it be? What would it look like and how would you feel?
I am passionate about ‘walking alongside’ women in journalism so they can realise their own potential, and get from A to B faster than if they were working alone. All the while maintaining a healthy and balanced home life.

Why do women need my help?
We’ve all been there as women in journalism and the media.
That feeling you’re not on a level playing field with men when it comes to your work being as respected, your ideas being listened to, your capabilities being acknowledged, or your pastoral needs as a woman being met. Confidence can quickly become undermined.
What is coaching and mentoring?
I ‘walk alongside’ women in the media to transform their confidence, to get them feeling empowered, with a healthy work-life balance.
I work with you as you gain clarity on what your goals are, both in and outside of work, and what action is needed to get you to where you want to be.
How does it work?
Working with me 1-2-1 over the phone or by Facetime/Skype you will be encouraged, motivated and challenged with self-reflection and honesty.
I will confidentially support you to develop and achieve your own unique goals for life, work and home, while overcoming barriers, ‘limiting beliefs’ and setbacks along the way.
How do I start?
Call me, WhatsApp or text me, or email for a free coaching session (no obligation for more) and discover how to unlock your confidence and potential.
I believe that to be happy and fulfilled as women in journalism we must not sacrifice our confidence, our work-life balance or our sense of self.
All too often we “masculinise” ourselves to try to succeed.
As an accredited coach and mentor, I support women to realise their own potential, learn what they really want from life and work (‘a-ha moments’) and help them gain new levels of confidence. I coach them to value their own abilities and take action to get to where they want to be.
Having spent the past 17 years as a professional broadcaster, journalist, writer and editor at BBC News and BBC Sport, I understand the demands of juggling a high-flying media career with a balanced personal life.
And I feel nothing qualifies me more to walk by your side as a coach than having moved forward from some serious challenges of my own…

What clients say about Anna
Clients who provide testimonials give Anna their written permission for them to be published, in line with coaching ethics and client confidentiality.
“I was a bit sceptical about coaching if I’m honest, but it turned out to be one of the best things I ever did. I now realise how easy it is to neglect really important elements of my life, like my family, when I get consumed by work. I now understand what makes me tick and what I want from life – and having time for work and home means I’m so much happier and content.”
“Anna is a great coach and I found her services really beneficial when I was at a bit of a crossroads. Sessions are intense in terms of what you get out of them and they helped me to realise what I actually wanted – which in all honesty I’d be trying to work out for years.”
“If I could be coached by Anna every day I would – it’s definitely the recipe for success! I put in place the actions after each session and felt like I was really making progress at work. I also ended up talking about other parts of my life and realised what changes I wanted to make in these areas too.”
