Meet Anna

Authenticity & Certified Life Coach

Born and raised in Vancouver BC, and currently based in Victoria, BC, I am a South-Asian Canadian woman who went through her own journey of self-discovery. After working as a social worker and a counselor, I pivoted towards coaching to help women feel liberated to live life by their choices and design.

I am an International Coaching Federation (ICF) and ACC-certified personal life coach with over a hundred hours of coaching experience. My mission is to help women discover their identity and purpose. I thrive on empowering women to re-gain purpose, explore value, and find freedom in their choices. Through my 1:1 coaching, you will be more aware, find clarity, and become confident in living life on your own terms.

Aside from coaching, I love: 

      

      

     

Nature—Walking feeds my mental health

Cooking—I love following a recipe

Real conversations—It's part of why I love coaching

Why I started Coaching

My desire to coach sprung from my passion to help others and work with people along with my own journey of self-discovery. In my life, I observed how I lived to please others rather than fulfill my own desires and aspirations.

 

In my journey of self-discovery, I lost my father and his passing reminded me of one of the best lessons he ever taught me: love myself first. He taught me that you cannot truly care for or love others if you don't take care of yourself first. Self-love is the first step to a successful and healthy personal and professional life. Finally, I made the choice to live as me.

 

Coaching gave me the platform to help others reconnect with who they are and gives them the freedom to make their own choices.

My guiding principles are:

Growth: Nurturing your present self

Accountability: Set actionable, attainable goals

Authenticity: Reconnect with who you are, so that you can thrive in all aspects of your life.

Discover your authentic self and live purposefully.

Anna has a very calm soothing voice that made me feel comfortable. It was so good to let go and feel some of the pain that was in my heart and to know I was on the right path.
