I am an executive coach and walking enthusiast experienced in individual and group coaching, event facilitation, and walking activities.
I have been the team leader experiencing relentless change and sandwiched between the needs of team members and demands of the organisation and bosses. Coaching and team events enabled me to develop the team, plan a way forward, overcome challenges and become a more confident, effective team leader.
This is the support I aim to offer now as a coach. Walking is central to how I work.
I have enjoyed discovering how walking and talking can have a transformative effect on all of us, particularly groups and teams. When we walk, we become explorers, connect with each other, have new ideas and feel good
My background is in bringing about change in Higher Education through educational technology and leadership development. I worked in this field at City, University of London from 2003, tutoring on the MA module Developing Leadership and Your Reflective Practice and becoming Head of Educational Technology leading a team of 20 in 2013 until leaving in 2016.
I have a Diploma in Intermediate Executive Coaching and Certificate in Systemic Team Coaching from the AoEC. I have also undertaken training in Gestalt Coaching, Ontological Coaching, and Thinking Environment, as well as experiencing a variety of walking coaching methods.

Anise was pivotal in planning and facilitating a successful away day. From helping define the aims and running the day, to contributing to next steps and debriefing, Anise ensured this was a highly productive, successful, and fun day. I am now engaging Anise in planning our next away day.
Marina Lim, Head of Business Analysis Team
Anise has a very calm and professional demeanour that brought out the best from each team member and everyone finished the day feeling more positive and that “we really got to know each other better”. A month on from the away day, the team is still in a positive place and is driving forward on completing many of the agreed actions of the day.
