Anna's key message --- that each of us want to find our way home to our truth, and that when we do, we intimately know ourselves, we are strengthened and we flourish. For this to happen, Anna brings awareness to her clients that any struggle outside is a reflection of the struggle inside. Once people can honesty get this distinction, the internal struggle gives way to priorities and practices that are self-selected and reflect clarity of direction, purpose, self-love and abundance. By sharing our true nature and fullest potential, we break down our walls of resistance that naturally enhances our relationships. We become more engaged in developing conscious communities at work and at home. Ultimately, this creates positive change to our relationship with self, each other and the healing of the planet.
And before this...
Anna worked in the corporate world of media, recruitment and property sales management in New Zealand and Australia for 25 years. There are many stories that acknowledge a rewarding and successful career. Throughout it all, Anna's' success could be attributed to her integrity and ability to comfortably relate to people from all walks of life. Many of Anna's clients and colleagues remain as firm friends.
So what happened...
Over a period of several years, Anna noticed a distancing in her psyche from these high-pressure roles, the joy of achievement was diminishing and it became a challenge to stay aligned with organisational values. Anna became aware that as rewarding and joyful as her career had been, she was compromising her own values and it was affecting her health. Something had to change. This enquiry eventually led to a resignation and sabbatical in Italy 2006 - 2007. Anna calls it her detox from corporate life and her return home to her authentic self. Like any detox, you have to shed the old stuff first before putting anything new in.
Anna brings a depth of understanding into her role as a mentor that derives from a dedicated approach to her own journey to know thyself; and to make choices that reflect true love of self and her work in the world. Their is very little that Anna's clients go through that she has not experienced in someway for herself. Testament to her work are the many life's that have transformed with Anna's conscious guidance and the work of the enhances awareness process.
