I learnt a lot about myself and the world through my sessions with Anna. Her kind and firm approach helped me build steps and encouraged me to be proactive in making those small changes and sometimes taking those brave steps to get to my goal. I left every session feeling encouraged and ready to take on the world. Although our coaching sessions are over, I have been left with tools to use if I ever feel stuck. I will always be grateful. Thanks Anna! More...

Anna has simply changed my life. I had an over the phone business consultation with Ms Riley where she coached me through everything I needed to consider when starting my business. The world is in an uncertain place and it can be hard to have clarity in where to start, let alone where you want to go with an idea. By being specific to my business, my brand, me, Anna has not only given me clarity in how too proceed but she has opened my mind to the many possibilities that are available. Working on my business with her has also developed my character, I am more motivated and ready to persevere on this journey. Anna has changed my life beyond what I am capable of articulating, I highly recommend her, I am certain she will do the same for you too. Thank you Anna Riley! More...

Life Coaching

I reached out to Anna during a time that I finally realized I have to do something about my low self-esteem and was additionally looking for guidance to finding purpose in life.
I am so glad and blessed I went with Anna because she is an incredible woman, who will commit to you and every single session you’ll have together. She prepares so much material and adapts her workshop to you and how/what you would like to get out of it. Anna has so many different approaches and ideas for her clients on how they can work on their hurdles, which personally I liked a lot.
At no point did I feel judged or that I couldn’t say whatever was on my mind. After the six week workshop, I feel more confident and am much more forgiving of myself, which has taken me over 20 years to achieve and Anna made it happen within 6 weeks. I can’t wait to see what the next 6 weeks bring when we address what I can do to find more meaning in life but am sure that I will feel much more at ease and less stressed about my future. Just remember that this is a continuous journey and the work doesn’t stop after your session :) With Anna, however, you will feel less scared and will have somebody to guide you through the rough times!

“I was struck by Anna’s professionalism from start to finish of every session. Anna has a unique gift to listen and to make molehills of perceived mountains. She asked questions that revealed her insight into where I was coming from.” More...

“I met Anna, just when I was in need of some direction and guidance in my personal and business life, timing seemed perfect. Anna has a very positive attitude she is kind, friendly and really cares. Anna also has lots of ideas and solutions and ways to achieve. Ideas also come from you as help is given to draw from your aspirations, help to grow into reality, step by step. I realise the importance of having a balance of work, rest and play and achieving goals no matter how small or big.” More...

“Anna Riley Coaching explored the surprising number of career options open to me (some of which I had previously considered and then quickly dropped). Anna and I thought through each option, came up with priorities and set out a step-by-step plan of action to keep me focused and on-track. As the days went by, I found myself achieving more and more, feeling optimistic and energetic. Anna’s Life Coaching was both supportive and practical. Anna helped me overcome a huge psychological barrier that I had set up for myself.” More...

“I was so angry that I was being put through this bullying that looking after myself and my mental health and seeking help was that last thing on my mind. Through attending this workshop and meeting others gave me the courage to seek help outside work” More...

As a vivid " fixer" to everyone, I didn't realize that I was the one that actually needed fixing and my fixing everything and everyone was just a mask hiding my hurt. After attending the Taking Care of Me wellbeing course I realised that my mental health was at stake. I needed to see, hear that I actually needed help, although it felt tabu at the time. I was able to recognise this and seek further help through mental health counselling, which Anna didn’t provide but was able to point me in the right direction”. More...

I didn't think that I could take time out. This workshop provides practical tips on how to take time out for me.

Anna has helped me gain an insight into how I can take care of me.


I love seeing my clients grow and being happy so that they can achieve all that they can possibly be. The reward of being able to do a job that I Iove which inspires me to motivate my clients to experience the same pleasure in their professional and personal lives. It's an absolute honour to be able to help and support a client navigate through a difficult time in their lives and then celebrate their achievements at the end of their coaching.

For many years I had been supporting my family, friends and colleagues inside and out of the workplace environment. One day I stumbled upon a Life Coaching advert and coincidentally, around the same time my sister also stumbled upon an advert for Life Coaching training through an email that she had been sent. I decided to explore this whole area and all the benefits of achieving my short and long term goals and unlocking my true potential. I decided to train and have not looked back since.

I have been working in the NHS, private and public sectors for over 30 years. During this time I have managed and worked with a diverse group of people and at times in some very challenging situations.

I am an independent Employment and Wellbeing coach working with employees who are being bullied or harassed at work, who feel that the relationship within their workplace may have broken down or are struggling to find hands on practical support that is not through the workplace due to individuals not feeling confident that their experience is going to be dealt with confidentially, confidently, independently or unbiased. I also support employees at any level within their organisation that are experiencing bullying and harassment.

On more than one occasion in the past I have personally experienced bullying and harassment within my working environment and also, most recently. I understand that when you are being bullied or harassed you need support as you can end up feeling isolated and the secondary impact that bullying and harassment can have on those that are close to you and would like to support you but end up feeling helpless.
I have a BSc (Hons) applied science degree in Perioperative Studies and Research which supports my practice from an evidence-based point of view. I am also a member of the International Association on Workplace Bullying and Harassment (IAWH) who endorse evidence-base practice by "...seeking to stimulate, generate, integrate and disseminate research in the field of workplace bullying and harassment, promoting fairness, justice and dignity at work for all" ( IAWA, 2008, p.1).
I have been trained in Personal Development, Wellness and NLP, which enhances client engagement in the facilitation of the coaching process.

If you are thinking about a change of career direction or starting up your own business or have a business idea but you are not quite sure what is involved and how best to get started, l will coach you through the process and what is involved, from a basic start up to long term sustainability.


Living life at a fast or even at a slow pace we can find ourselves not being able to stop and collect our thoughts, sometimes positive and other times negative.

We may have to deal with uncertain situations where we feel that we would just like some space to be listened to, in an unjudgemental way, with the freedom to be ourselves without the opinions of others.

If this resonates with you then get in touch and receive the gift that you deserve 'to be listened to'.
