Anita is an accredited professional executive coach and qualified coach supervisor; she has been working with Genius Within as an associate coach since 2012.
Before qualifying as a coach, Anita worked in senior human resources roles for large international technology companies, including training and development. Anita was drawn to coaching because she enjoys the one to one focus and the depth of the relationship you can build. Anita identifies as neurodiverse, she has learned to value her own strengths and finds it rewarding to help others on their journey.
When Anita is coaching at her best she is really engaged in listening, she loves the creativity of finding the right question to ask, or the right coaching framework that suits the moment. Anita finds working with neurodivergent people keeps her constantly curious and interested, because each person is so different, and forges their own unique path.
Anita believes that by giving people space to explore different aspects through coaching they can develop their own potential and resilience to succeed.
