solve a problem previously thought unsolvable."

Senior investment banking lawyer facing different challenges in terms of career progression, work life balance and managing relationships.

By believing in the power of coaching and investing in a personal coaching program, the client has created transformational change not only in the objectives she was pursuing but also in deepening her own awareness and changing well established behaviours. The change has been noticed by colleagues, including their boss, as well as friends and family.
“Annelise is the person who helped me to focus and pursue my objectives; I was in the process to change my professional life but a bit lost in choosing the exact field of work to provide me with the satisfaction I was looking for.
She coached me with practical instruments and I was able to open my eyes and listen to myself. She helped me to solve any internal conflict and harmonise several aspects of my life and in a very short time I got a proposal that I was able to catch and manage and I succeeded.
I strongly recommend her to anyone trying to succeed in their work or life because she has a practical approach; she immediately understands your needs and helps you to find the right way.”
~ Rita P. Senior Legal Expert
The client really enjoyed the practical aspects of coaching and the action oriented angle that she previously did not experience whilst in therapy.
A non-directive coaching approach was implemented together with other NLP techniques and brainstorming. As the week progressed, the client started to improve her work situation, regain trust and confidence in her capabilities.
She landed her dream job as a legal expert for a development project in an African country, which satisfied her desire to have a purpose and help underprivileged people.
“I was facing a very challenging time during my professional career as I really wanted to step up and progress but I was lost and I didn’t know where to start to make this happen.
I approached Annelise as I didn’t feel I was doing the right thing and I felt I wasn’t really achieving what was in my mind and concreate result with my promotion and in terms of career progression. There was something that definitively I wasn’t doing right, but I couldn’t identify by myself what was it or where I went wrong. Things felt unorganized and I had no structure to what I was doing. I had a general idea, but needed to fine-tune the details so I could truly move ahead.
Annelise was definitively the best choice, meeting her and starting my coaching with her not only changed my way of thinking and helped me with my career progression but it also changed the way I deal and approach things in my life. I was finally able to achieve great results, particularly with my job/career/path. Every single person around me was amazed about my changes and results.
Annelise was also the perfect fit for me; as a former investment bank lawyer, she had just the insight I needed and she immediately understood my frustrations and where my issues where coming from. She helped me to be more confident, branch out and try things I had been scared to try. I have accomplished so many things since I have started my coaching session with Annelise and I am so proud of myself as now I can see tangible results.
The coaching sessions with Annelise were power-filled, mind-blowing and definitely an amazing insight of who I was, where I wanted to go and why I felt stuck. She is great at clarifying your vision of where you want to go and facilitating goals attainments.”
