Bringing my own positive energy to our sessions, I’m Annabel Gonifas, a qualified Professional Coach Mentor based in South Devon working in person and online.
Accredited with the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC), I’m also a personality profile facilitator with Clarity4D and Team DyNAmics.
My coaching expertise is combined with 25 years extensive experience in working with groups and individuals in the UK and in Europe.
As a member of the EMCC, I run my practice within their code of ethics and have my own Supervisor, indemnity insurance and keep my coaching fresh by ongoing CPD and research.
I come from a coaching and mentoring background. Growing up largely in Belgium we were brought up to “seek first to understand, then be understood”, how to live by our values, and the importance of strategic thinking.
Believing this was normal, I’d never questioned this way of thinking. Only as an adult, coming across real struggles in my professional and personal life, did I realise the importance of being able to draw on these skills that I’d learnt as a child.
Training as a Professional Coach and Mentor has been a natural progression, solidifying how I intrinsically think with solid science-based tools and theories so that I can now help others progress confidently through their own difficult hurdles.
I know from personal experience that all stages of business (and life!) can be hard. I’ve had those nights when you wake up at 3am worrying about work, I’ve worn all the hats, I’ve juggled family life with business, I’ve thought I’ve created the best team only to find that it wasn’t what I’d hoped for. Just like you, I’ve been there.
But coaching with me isn’t about me. It’s 100% about you.
And I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story.
Awareness is everything.
