I can help

waving-hand-sign_1f44b

As a coach, I help clients to go on an inner journey of self-discovery, uncovering their own insights and truths so they can in time reach the external outcomes they desire. Much of the success of coaching is down to the trust we build in the coach-client relationship. I therefore offer a free 30-min discovery call so you can ask me any questions and see if we are the right fit.

"Working with Anouk was truly wonderful, she has a very calming energy and genuinely listens to you. She has a wonderful ability of taking in everything you say and helping articulate it back to you in a way that helps you realise things. I always found Anouk helped me untangle my thoughts into something coherent and actionable! I've felt more self aware and confident in work as a result of our time together."

Tell me more about coaching

How it works
Coaching happens over a series of 60-75 min sessions, currently over the phone or on video. I usually recommend a minimum of 4 sessions, but have found that it takes 6-8 for real changes to happen. We can discuss what your needs are as well as fees in our intro chat.

A whole person approach
We may start by discussing a particular work challenge, but I’m interested in all parts of you and we will inevitably explore how this challenge is linked to other parts of your life (relationships, wellbeing, mindsets etc).

A practical, future-focused approach
As opposed to therapy which delves into the client’s past and root of their behaviour, coaching is present and future-focused and relatively practical. Essentially I listen deeply, ask powerful questions and use some nifty tools and techniques. But the changes will only come about as a result of the effort and commitment you put in.

An approach grounded in positive psychology
Positive psychology is a scientific approach focused on strengths instead of weaknesses and building the good in life instead of repairing the bad. I believe in helping my clients leverage their inner strengths and values to reach a more authentic version of themselves in life and at work.

Commitment and engagement from you
In addition to the weekly or biweekly sessions, there will be some time in between to reflect, work through some actions and make progress on your goals. I often ask my clients to carry a notebook around so they can jot down the insights that come up in between sessions. Having a coach to be accountable to for the changes you make in your life can be really powerful.

About me

Coaching is a creative and collaborative process, therefore finding the right coach is an important first step. Let me tell you a bit about me and we can take it from there.

I've always been passionate about helping people reach their potential, from managing and nurturing teams, setting up a women’s mentoring scheme and leading a program to help young people enter the workforce.

I’ve spent over 15 years working in the tech, start-up and non-profit sectors, most recently at Google leading community for Google Maps. I understand the pressures of different working environments: from highly unstructured and working directly with founders to more hierarchical and process-driven.

Around the time I had my second daughter, I reached a point when I was juggling too much: a house move, a demanding job with frequent overseas travel, two young children, and a yearning for more meaningful work. I experienced a burnout and took some time to re-evaluate and find more balance.

I trained in Advanced Professional Coaching and Mentoring with Wise Goose and I’m a member of the Association for Coaching.

When I’m not working, I love swimming in the sea and cycling around the East London marshes.

Ciara, Growth Marketer, Google

 

"Having the privilege to work with Anouk has fundamentally affected the way I think about things. She brings a perfect mix of challenging any thoughts we may have that don't serve us, at the same time being fully supportive and non-judgemental. It was like a mix of therapy and guidance for general life. I think everyone would benefit from sessions with her".

Kiran, Musician and teacher

 

“Anouk is excellent at absorbing and distilling information in her coaching sessions, essentially helping to pull out areas where I felt stuck in an effort to help me move forward. She is a very clear communicator and she always gave honest feedback on areas where I should be working. I highly recommend working with her!”

Willow, Marketing Consultant

“I approached Anouk for some coaching when I was struggling to make a career decision. Our sessions helped me to define my values and strengths, giving me a new sense of confidence and the ability to understand what I needed from my next job. Anouk has a calm and emphatic approach to her coaching, empowering you to make decisions that work for you. She has coached me to listen less to my inner critic, and introduced some stress-reducing tactics that really helped me get through some tougher work days.”
