Anne Maree Wallace
Professional Coach and Mentor
"Although a senior doctor I had never received coaching before and this was provided in order to help me adjust to a promoted role with extended and different responsibilities from previous jobs. The coaching has been extremely valuable- I particularly enjoyed Anne Maree’s practical exercises enabling me to see myself moving on from my old role and being confident in my new post. She helped me to set goals and ambitions and talked through how I could achieve these. She was never afraid to disagree with my preconceived ideas about how I should reach these goals but found a way to improve on my ideas. I recognise that I have come a long way during 16 months of coaching- becoming more confident and assured in my new role, prioritising tasks more effectively and delegating successfully leading to a much more manageable workload and improvement in work life balance. What more could I ask for!"
"Anne Maree's coaching style is thoughtful, challenging and encouraging- the sessions have been thoroughly stimulating and enjoyable and the results very rewarding! I have since been able to progress several workstreams, engage senior management, and gained the confidence to deliver real improvements for patients. I would highly recommend her coaching to any doctor who wishes to become more effective in their leadership role."

Thanks again for the coaching. It's been pretty transformative in the way I approach work and finding a sustainable way in these early years of my academic career.

"As a coachee I was a jumbled up mess of feelings and emotions. Dr Wallace listened and without judgment. She encouraged me to address my self limiting beliefs one at a time. This was done with such skill and compassion that I was totally submersed in our coaching conversations. She made me feel as if she had an insight into my work-life and was enabling me to examine my actions and behaviours good and not so good that would impact on my performance as a manger."
Manager within the NHS
"The coaching with Anne Maree greatly helped me in my work. Through job changes and maternity leave I was looking to increase my confidence again and work through some challenging situations in the workplace. The conversations we had and plans which developed were invaluable towards me dealing with these issues. Many things which unnecessarily worried me in the past no longer really concern me. The coaching has really helped me to get on well with my work and to have strong working relationships with our team."
"Anne Maree has many years experience of management as well as deep theoretical knowledge and understanding. She is empathetic and compassionate but not indulgent and its clear that she loves her work. Therefore you trust her with your confidences, knowing that she will use them to help in a useful way. She was able to demonstrate to me a different perspective on the situations I found difficult so that I could change the way I reacted to them. Most importantly she helped me to understand and begin to value my own style and strengths and how to develop my work to capitalise on these, while helping me to find techniques to manage the areas of work where I am less strong. I felt liberated with a renewed interest in my work. I am immensely grateful."
“The coaching that Anne Maree has provided for me has been invaluable. Having initially been slightly sceptical of the potential benefits of coaching, I have found the process to be transformative. Anne Maree has helped me to gain a much better understanding of my own strengths and a greater awareness of how to optimise my own behaviours and decision making to ensure that I can perform better at work. Her style has been very relaxed and supportive, yet I always found our sessions to be thought provoking and challenging in a very constructive way. I would strongly recommend Anne Maree’s skills and experience to anybody who is considering coaching.” NHS Consultant
