Coaching & Mentoring

Have you thought about being coached by Fig Tree?

Persistence, perseverance, and continuous improvement are the ingredients for forming a successful person.

What Is Professional Coaching?

Coaching is a professional relationship which actively intervenes and helps people produce positive transformations in their personal lives, careers, relationships, businesses and organisations.


The Key Benefits of Coaching

Through powerful questioning techniques, lateral thinking outside the box, giving you space to feel and think, coaching focuses on helping the client discover answers for themselves.  This has an empowering impact on you as the client.  Coaching unlocks incredible potential and enables;

  • Greater awareness, self-discovery and clarity over what you want.
  • Greater understanding and future direction
  • Inspiration and new motivation for people to maximise their potential
  • Greater focus and being proactive
  • Improved resilience
  • Higher levels of performance and increased energy levels
  • Smarter goal setting
  • Increased confidence, social skills and soft skills
  • Better communication

“Invest in yourself to get the best interest.”

You Are Worth It!


100% of clients who are coached or mentored by Fig Tree International achieve a promotion, if that is what they are aspiring to. 



What can my clients expect from me?

A trajectory of personal and professional growth

An on-going safety net of professional support, as and when it is needed

Why do I coach?

I am passionate about leadership and seeing the potential of leadership in others. I remember throughout my own time as a leader seeing how people can be treated, both in a positive manner, but also adversely, by different organisations and that’s when I knew I was onto something. I support those with immense capability for promotion, but also those who may not recognise their own potential or lack confidence. I enable them to be heard, move them onto a trajectory of personal and professional growth and provide an on-going safety net of professional support, as and when it is needed. I do this by promoting client understanding and being future-focused.

  • Completion of work to a higher standard
  • Better focus, reduced stress and greater confidence
  • Ability to strategise, as necessary
  • Clarity and a picture of future vision
  • Honest and useful feedback
  • Improved communication skills
  • Increased employee engagement
  • To be heard, in an empathetic and present manner
  • Skills of persuasion
  • An experienced response
  • A brainstorming & processing partner to simplify their business
  • Some humour and fun
  • Increased self awareness
  • Gain clarity and direction with their decision making.
  • Uncover their innate creativity and curiosity.
  • Increase their authenticity and confidence to achieve their goals

Ann as a Coach

I have a well-established career in professional coaching  and mentoring and many have journeyed through the education profession and corporate world, with my support and guidance. From coaching executive leaders, heads and aspiring heads, I originally coached via the NQPH programme.

Subsequently, clients have come from a variety of fields.  I was a 'Women Leading in Education' Coach and am currently a Coach with the Academy of Women's Leadership.  In wanting to learn from the best in the world in terms of coaching models, I embarked on a learning journey with Marcia, Reynolds, the recognised, 5th best Coach in the world, who advocates a reflective-enquiry approach and coaching the person and not the problem.

As a coach, I move between a client-discovery approach, with some traditional teacher.  My questions are designed so that the client learns about themselves.  

I promote:

Client understanding and reflection

I believe in an awareness-based coaching approach.   If you want a coaching style that is going to take you to the next level, then my coaching style is for you.  No holes barred, you will find out anything from how to deal with difficult conversations to dealing with work and life challenges.
