Coaching

What is a coach therapist? 

A coach therapist is a qualified therapist who adapts their training to the work of a coach, integrating the two approaches, providing clients with a holistic personal experience of change, from surface level and external influences as well as the deeper internal issues, if required. It is a powerful combination that provides a robust frame for change. Two for the price of one!

I use my theoretical modalities of learning to inform my work as a coach, as well training in certain coaching practice. Trained in an integrative model, combining psychodynamic, systemic, person centred and attachment theories I adapt these to commonly used coaching models, such as GOAL, SPACE and the Personal Consultancy framework.

My next million of revenue is thanks to Anshu. As a CEO struggling to grow his business, I began to understand the problem was not the business model itself but its leadership. I knew the right next steps to grow the business but never took them. The business wasn’t taking off as I had hoped and I became very frustrated. This is when I engaged Anshu as a personal development coach. My goal was to ensure I grew personally. As I was aware of a key ingredient to growing a business was a balanced & robust emotional intelligence and well-being. She gently, but assertively, took me on a journey. She had a plan of helping me be in control of my emotions rather than them controlling me. Events that triggered fear or panic internally are talked through and examined. In the light of my personality and circumstances, reasons why I may have reacted in such ways are logically worked through, empowering me for the next time. Deep rooted issues are brought to discussion and handled with extreme empathy and trust. I particularly appreciated the times when I was quite blind to my emotions and the times she confidently helped me connect with them. I surprised myself at how I responded and how sharing intense emotion gave me personal release. She focuses on the positive aspects of personal development, encourages new ways of thinking and seeing yourself. This has injected fresh energy and capability into my role as CEO and as a person. I thoroughly recommend Anshu for her integrity, skill, confidentiality and professionalism. She gets RESULTS.

The short-term sessions with Anshu, brought me to a new understanding and awareness of my story. I gained a new perspective and left feeling different about important relationships. Even if you have one session with her, you will see change.

Being coached by Anshu has changed how I view work challenges, personal life goals and how I relate to others. In a time of crisis, Anshu’s work with me was invaluable. I have gained insights that I will take forward into the future.
