Developing Women Leaders
Coaching-based solutions will help your women develop what they need for success
Anya has been delivering executive coaching since 2015. Prior to that Anya enjoyed a 13-year career as a senior M&A lawyer with Norton Rose Fulbright, a top global law firm, followed by a family gap year on a tropical island, becoming a women’s health activist, entrepreneur and a coach. Anya’s professional services background ensures that she never underestimates the demands of high-performing cultures.
Anya is particularly interested in supporting people at times of transition in career and life when the path is not clear and the temptation is high to trade in dreams and ambitions for the security of the well-known. Anya believes that coaching provides the approach, support and time required for self-exploration, balance and gaining clarity. We all have the answers to our most pressing questions, but they are hidden under the day-to-day chaos of life. Answers need to be discovered, it is an exploration.
Anya worked and lived in the UK, Singapore, Russia and France and is now based in London. She supports humanitarian causes through pro bono coaching for the ICRC world workers, volunteers as a Governor for a local primary school and is a keen ukulele player.Get in touch
Clients say that “Anya has a natural ability to make you recognise your own potential” and describe her style as inspiring, wholehearted and challenging her clients to grow beyond their comfort zones.
Anya’s approach is to balance self-exploration and action. She supports her clients in gaining awareness of their strengths, patterns and impact, and translating such self-awareness into meaningful and powerful action.
An underlying principle of Anya’s coaching is that people are naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and so they have the means to solve their own challenges.
With clients Anya acts as a thinking partner. She listens closely to what you are saying (and not saying) and asks questions to help you find the answers that are most valuable and relevant to you. By finding your own answers, you create more energy and commitment to take action towards your goals.
Anya has experience working across various sectors, including law, finance, pharma, recruitment, PR, healthcare, public services, entrepreneurship and humanitarian NGOs.
"The six sessions I had with my ECC Coach changed my perspective of coaching. I was initially uncertain (and possibly sceptical) about the benefits of coaching but my coach read me very well and knew when to coax a response out from me by being encouraging and when to firmly push me to see the benefits of reframing some of my previously held positions."Head of Legal, International Property Group
