What People Say

“As a result of the coaching, I have identified that the feelings around money are just that, feelings. I understand that the thoughts and feelings I was having around money were not helpful but also that they pass.

My partner has also really benefited from me doing the programme. We have talked a lot about it and what we want to do in terms of our future financial planning.

I have found that having you there as my coach has made me take more action like looking into the pension side of things for both myself and my partner.

I now realise that the feelings of stress and panic are not helpful. I have a much more hopeful outlook on the future now and feel that there is a lot more in my control that I previously believed.

The sense of shame I had about my financial situation has reduced exponentially and I have a real sense that everything will be fine. I have found myself talking to friends about the programme and about why I am doing it and I feel both empowered and excited by it. ”

Sarah, mid-career professional

“I can’t thank Anne-Marie enough for helping me with my decision to buy my first property. As well as guiding me through this big decision and the house-buying process, she also helped me with working on myself. I would go so far as to say she has changed my way of thinking. It has been an amazing process, I am more confident with myself and my own decision now!

Thanks again for everything. You have helped me a lot, not just with the decision on buying an apartment but everything really. I always think of you each time I need to remind myself that I am enough :) ”

JP, early to mid-career professional

“Working with Anne-Marie has been transformative. For me it has been a total paradigm shift in how I think about money and my interactions with all of my finance, both personal and professional. It has been a really positive experience.

Anne-Marie's visualisations and meditations were hugely helpful and enjoyable - soul cleansing is how I think of it! Thank you Anne-Marie! ”

Seonaid, mid-career professional

“A few "wins" I have achieved since working with Anne-Marie: 🌟Paid back personal debt and last year I bought my own home, something I never thought I’d do.

🌟I understand that numbers aren't my enemy. Some structure in life is necessary to be able to keep on track.

🌟I have left behind old beliefs such as "money is hard to come by" and "rich people are greedy".

🌟I feel confident I am in charge of my finances & my future. ”
