Animas Centre for Coaching

Coaching is a person-centred form of help that empowers you to discover your own goals and solutions.

It is based on listening, reflecting and questioning in a non-judgmental, collaborative and confidential space.

You can explore your situation and move towards where you want to be, through a future focussed journey of discovery and self-awareness.

Unlike mentoring, coaching doesn’t require the coach to have experience in your specialised field of work.

Transformational coaching aims to go much deeper than simply working with surface behaviours. It helps you explore and update the assumptions, perspectives and world-views that underpin your thoughts, feelings and actions.

This can create a lasting foundation for achieving success; freeing you from habitual patterns to become the best version of yourself.

Whatever is holding you back from reaching your potential, coaching could help you find the insights and clarity to move forwards with confidence.

Career Transitions


The pace of the modern workplace can be very demanding. We all find different factors that cause stress and reduce our performance level. Coaching around stress and resilience can help you connect with your most effective ways of working, whilst managing the effects of events that are outside your control.
A successful business often requires many different kinds of people working together smoothly in teams and management structures. But how do you understand and communicate effectively with those who are different to you? How can you work effectively and avoid conflict? Coaching with a psychological awareness of personality differences can help you understand the dynamics of interactions and to work better with others.
Have your interests and values change over time? Are you moving in a different career direction and therefore meeting new challenges at work? If you are beginning a new role or job and want to get a head start, try some coaching. At these times of potential overload, coaching will give you the space and support to focus and make fast progress.
