One to One Coaching


" Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else. "

Judy Garland

One to One

What would it be like if your life was just the way you wanted it to be?

By working together to explore your values and goals, looking at your life as it is now and how you'd like it to be in the future, you will create the life you want.

You may be looking for greater satisfaction in any area of your life — personal growth, health, fun and recreation, etc. I provide motivation, support, and a form of accountability as you take action toward a more satisfying life.

What is coaching?

Coaching is...

"Unlocking a person's potential to maximise their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them"Timothy Gallwey - The Inner Game of Work

"...about helping someone to get the best performance out of themselves – the potential for which was already there"Sir John Whitmore - Performance Coach

"...about releasing potential and generating responsibility. Coaching heightens and raises awareness to achieve greater performance"Ann Skidmore - Professional Coach

Just some of the feedback Ann has received from the many people who have had their lives improved by achieving their own aims and goals.

When I first started working with Ann I was unsure of my direction in life and dissatisfied with my job.  During our sessions Ann raised my awareness of unused skills and talents, instilled confidence and enabled me to forge a vision for the future.  As a result of our regular meetings my goals and ambitions are being fulfilled and my vision is becoming a reality.Hilary C. Professional Coach

What I learned from you today was invaluable and it was most generous of you to share it.Jane C. Course Participant

What are the 3 important ways that you have benefited from our working together

  • Clarity that I am good at what I do.
  • To go back to an empowering event e.g. my wedding day and use that experience when I am feeling doubtful or low.
  • That I should trust myself more.

The role you have played is to be a sounding board for me to voice my concerns, someone who listened to my doubts and gave good feedback, someone to guide me about the issues I came with and to enable me to solve them.Christine M.  Coach
