COACH PROFILE ABOUT ANNE-MARIE

ANNE-MARIE JONSBAK

“WHAT YOU ARE THE WORLD IS. AND WITHOUT YOUR TRANSFORMATION, THERE CAN BE NO TRANSFORMATION OF THE

I am a social visionary. A coach, consultant, entrepreneur and photographer. I have more than 20 years’ multicultural and international experience working across three continents.
 
 I have my eyes on the horizon whilst following an inner sense of direction and the resources that live within me. I like transforming old mental maps and paradigms and, create strategies that are ‘outside the box’ of conventional thought. I fuse the rational with the intuitive. My thinking is broad and systemic, and I can make out the pattern that connects. Working with insight and boldness, I like to focus on opportunities, that which is essential and calling forth the best in people.
 
 I have strong core values and principles that I apply to both my personal and professional life, and doing something meaningful has always been of significant importance to me.

ELSAMARIE D’SILVA

"With Elsa and Marissa's encouragement, I shared something that I don't think I would ever share if they didn't co-create space for me to hope. This was a space of support, empathy, and gentle nudges. Each time, Elsa redefined who I thought I was, I seem to look at my reflection differently. I have never seen myself as an artist but as Elsa noted, other people saw this...Although, what I proposed was something not done before...these women trusted me enough to go with it. With that trust, I was able to be authentic, reflect (I hope) what people see in me, and make my voice matter. Thanks so much for the opportunity. I am indebted to you all."

Our monthly meetings, personal development assignments, and her willingness to connect me to other public policy professionals was exactly what I needed. I just started a new position which is a professional leap from my former role. It is in alignment with what I want to be doing at this moment in time! I’m thankful for Elsa’s coaching through the growing pains I was experiencing in my work."

COACH PROFILE ABOUT KATE I offer people time and assured safety so they can explore the qualities of their thinking, how thinking intersects with feelings and with the wider world.

COACH PROFILE

RECENT CLIENT STORY

KATE HAMMER

“I was drawn to work with Kate initially because of her commitment to reframing and creativity. We had four sessions together and set the intention early on to reframe how I was perceiving myself as a leader. I probably didn’t realise the change I was actually looking for at the time was one of accepting and celebrating who I am, and feeling the agency to embrace that. I wasn’t sure what entirely to expect, especially because we met shortly after lockdown and the world was already a bit topsy turvy. I found the four conversations we had hard work - not because they were not joyful and interesting, but because I trusted Kate to really help go a bit deeper in some of my perceptions and interrogating some of my patterns. A couple of months on, I’m still seeing so many benefits: both the practical tools that I carry with me in everyday life, and a greater accountability to create space for myself to ask fundamental questions more often.” ~ Leading from Within participant Spring 2020

COACH PROFILE ABOUT LYNDA

LYNDA SIMMONS

When a client engages with me he/she can expect someone who is interested in who they are and what's important to them. What they are trying to change and why? I'm curious about the reasons for the change and what stops them from taking the next step. As a fully invested partner I consider it a privilege to be a part of a client’s journey and their success in achieving their desired goals.
 I’m really looking forward to working with you!

TESTIMONIALS FEEDBACK FROM RECENT COACHEES “As a testament to coaching style, as the session unfolded my thinking deepened and I made a connection with past information and the current issue I would like to change; and then was able to reframe it in a way that puts greater emotional distance between it and my current context.” 
 - Energy Industry, Director

LYNDA SIMMONS

“Lynda provides a highly approachable, engaging and professional attitude to executive coaching. Her calm and reassuring approach promoted honest and open dialogue from the start, which meant we hit the ground running in addressing some of my goals and objectives for the sessions. Not only did Lynda listen attentively, she was able to sympathetically guide and challenge my thoughts, build upon my existing strengths and develop a more progressive and constructive mindset. Simple but effective techniques have become a part of my everyday processes and are already becoming subconscious. It is obvious that Lynda is working at a very high standard and through an impartial, empathetic and encouraging nature was able to provide me with a clarity of thought, that I now feel will stand me in good stead for completing both my short term goals and give the basis for a longer term outlook.”

COACH PROFILE ABOUT RACHEL I am passionate about the power of collaboration to effect meaningful change, and have worked in collaborative initiatives across the international development and non-profit sectors for 20 years. This passion recently found expression in my role as co-facilitator on the She Leads Change ‘Leading Collective Impact' programme a truly inspiring and impactful programme.

Rachel Houghton

I experienced first hand the transformative power of coaching during my transition to a chief executive role. The insight of my coaches made a profound difference to the way I showed up, and helped me realise that effective leadership starts at home, with ourselves. It was this experience that led me to train as a leadership coach.

“May leadership be for you a

TESTIMONIALS FEEDBACK FROM RECENT COACHEES

Rachel Houghton

“Rachel has been instrumental in helping me reach the next level of self-awareness and self-confidence on my leadership journey. Most importantly, our sessions gave me a true sense of agency. What I found unique about Rachel was her ability to consider what's happening both in one's personal and professional lives - I really felt I was getting a holistic treatment looking at me as a whole person, rather than just 'an employee' or a 'professional leader'. Rachel is one of the most inspiring people I’ve met, especially in how she exudes both calmness and self-assuredness; empathy and expertise; all while advocating and displaying steadfast integrity.”

“ Never stop wondering; never stop wandering”

“Rachel is empathetic and a great listener. She is brilliant at reflecting and asking pertinent questions, effortlessly guiding conversations to help you to reach the heart of issues. Rachel’s warmth and sense of humour make you feel at ease. She is also knowledgeable about leadership and coaching approaches, providing useful references and exercises to do between sessions. Every time we have a session, I am left buzzing with new thoughts and ideas. I thoroughly enjoyed working with and learning from Rachel.”

TESTIMONIALS FEEDBACK FROM RECENT COACHEES ”Shalini is an intuitive and empathetic coach who guided me through my journey of self discovery and success. She is professional, caring and non judgemental in her approach, and provides a sense of safety and security which allowed me to gain greater self awareness and go deeper into my desires and beliefs.”

SHALINI SEQUIERA

”Shalini coached me over a period of 5 or 6 months. I always looked forward to our conversations as I knew I would be challenged to think about things in a different way and that she would call out my assumptions! So I couldn’t hide behind excuses or ‘I can’t do that…’ It was very helpful to me as I was in the process of launching a business and her holding that mirror to me made me realise that I was being over cautious and that I wanted to be braver. All this was done in a very supportive manner, so I felt safe and confident.”

“IT’S EASIER TO ACT YOUR WAY TO A NEW WAY OF THINKING THAN TO THINK YOURSELF INTO A NEW WAY OF ACTING”

”Shalini was a great help whilst I was settling in my new role and helped me gain more confidence and navigate challenging meetings. I found she has very good listening skills, and acts as a pragmatic and empowering coach. I’m grateful to have worked with her and would recommend her to anyone who is looking to transform their career or reach new personal goals.”
