annbenchHello and welcome. I’m Ann Kates and I’m a life and business coach.

 

I truly love what I do. I have the deep honor of helping men and women transform their lives into something they love and desire. Often, significant events in our lives, such as a job change, moving to a new city, losing a loved one, ending a relationship, or even having a feeling that’s something’s missing, act as catalysts for growth and change. I act as a partner and guide to help you navigate these often difficult and tricky transitions, help you figure out what’s next, how to heal, as well as leave you with tools to use in your everyday life to have a more stress free and satisfying life.

 

I also coach and mentor small business owners. I have a long background in management, owned and operated a business in New York for 10 years and now run my own coaching business. I work with entrepreneurs, who are often creative, right-brained types, and give them left-brained guidance so they can learn to manage their business effectively without losing their creative drive.

 

No matter the circumstances, you do have the power of choice to change and improve your life. It’s easy to lose sight of that as we try to just get through the day. Having a life coach is a bit like having a personal trainer for your life where you set aside time to learn new skills to identify, create and have the life you want.

 

I now have the great pleasure of doing what I find meaningful and love to do. My lifestyle and work is a true reflection of who I am. I know this because I no longer feel a sense of emptiness inside. I am living my “right” life and I’d love to help you live yours.

  • 12 Aug Two Kinds of Happiness

    I’ve come to know two kinds of happiness. When they stand together, I am fulfilled and, well…happy. I lived the good life in New York, a happy life, with everything a girl could want. But, in the quiet moments, I still felt an invisible emptiness......

Life Coaching Q and A’s

Why coaching?

We all want to feel good. Most people decide to get a coach when they’ve stopped feeling good in an area of their life or have felt stuck for too long. They want to make a positive change and are ready to learn how to do it. When you make a commitment to coaching, you make a commitment to yourself.  That’s the first and most important step. I’ll help you discover the answers inside yourself in a calm, safe and relaxed environment. This is not about advice giving or telling you what to do. That would be too easy. So be ready to do some work and to have some fun, too. The inward journey is where the true rewards are found.

What results can I expect from coaching?

The results you desire and define. My job is to get you there through a process of self-discovery and reflection, finding and listening to your own voice in a new way, becoming aware of limiting beliefs that are holding you back, gaining support and confidence where you need it and clarifying what’s important to you and why.  You’ll also learn a variety of effective self-coaching tools that you can use the rest of your life.
