Thank you Anne Lewis, for being authentic in your coaching talent and helping me through my self-development journey. As over-achievers it is important to pause, praise and acknowledge “We are enough” .
Thank you so much for your coaching guidance.

Coaching with Anne Lewis brought me clarity around the speed bumps and road blocks I've put in my own way and provided the impetus and focus to stay in forward motion. Not necessarily in checking off the items I have to do, but around developing a positive mindset for 'how I have to be' to hit my targets.

I think that what Anne Lewis has as a person is a depth, and I think that this makes a difference, Beyond listening and re-framing, there's something intangible - it is the essence of who she is, caring, compassionate, not afraid to go deep, down the "Mariana Trench". She is not afraid of that."

The single most important thing that I have learned from Anne Lewis is that coaching is like an emotional/reflective process where you become increasingly aware of your habits and the ways in which you need to grow to better scale your business.
Ben Douek, CEO, Robot In A Can
My professional corporate knowledge comes through direct participation and observation during 30 uninterrupted years as a senior team player and leader in a nationwide communications, information and entertainment company. In this shifting landscape I lived multiple corporate acquisitions, mergers, reorgs and vast technological changes.
The solution is often right in front of us, but invisible. Habits can become so ingrained, and the inner critics' voices so loud, my work is to help the process along. I will reflect back to you, re-connecting you to your vision, pointing out connections, inconsistencies and especially drawing your attention to your untapped brilliance. My job is to notice patterns you might never see. My role is to guide, accompany, and support you while you connect with your evolving self and your deeply held core values. You apply these values to gain a fuller experience of all aspects of your life - to yourself, to the important people and to the key issues around you. Our partnership reduces the sense you might have of being stuck, resistant or overwhelmed.
On a personal level, I can truly say that I know this process, and that I have lived and breathed it in the comeback I have made from a life-changing accident. I believe our life experience infuses what we do together: I bring strength in adversity, a determination in the face of challenge, a never-ending adaptability and a fervent belief that we can harness fear and discomfort as opportunities for growth. My academic background includes being a certified PPCC (a post-graduate diploma in Personal and Professional Coach, Concordia University, emphasizing evidence-based change practices, and a PCC (a credentialed member of the International Coach Federation). I am a trained compassionate listener and offer free coaching to women and their families living with food and shelter insecurity, to people with delicate attention and youth at risk of failing in school.
We work in a collaborative and co-creative way. We enlist your values, purpose and vision, we question your expectations, your habitual ways of being and doing, and we identify which thought processes, narrative threads, mental models and self limiting beliefs might be holding you back.You decide which of them are no longer serving you, and you replace them with more useful ones.
I encourage you to listen to your inner critics and saboteurs, and hear them for what they are - healthy voices with a grain of sense, warning you, but perhaps overdoing it, stopping you from getting what you deserve.
We work to contact your dormant or buried wisdom and to develop trust in it. We celebrate shifts in the way you think and act. Together we plan your next steps, including goal-setting, and we do it strategically, lining up your values and vision with your most desired and workable outcomes.
This agility in clients appears to be one of the hallmarks of successful resilience and adaptation to change.
As your coach I bring objective eyes, ears, heart, mind. I offer reflexes and points of view different to yours, giving you a fresh view of yourself. We benefit from the multiplier effect of partnering in a wide ranging exploration.
I bring you unwavering support and hold your vision of what matters most to you.
I understand first-hand the unique challenges of life with a physician. I'm the wife of one, as well as the daughter, the sister-in-law, the niece, and there's even more of us. We're a regular medical dynasty.
I have lived through all that equalizing work for us to do.
My clients find self-leadership in the most unsuspected places.
We work through the grief of lost careers, cherish new ones and bring to life the dream of independence.
We flush out useless internal narratives and put better ones into action.
We consider the appearance the world has of us as financially secure, versus the reality.
We make room for the jealousy and resentment and guilt and pain and swear we accept it’s okay to feel them. We get beyond those mental routines spewed out by our unrelenting inner saboteurs.
We even put ourselves first, yes, hopefully and maybe only for a brief moment in time.
(Ssshhh, don’t say we do that. But we do. And we celebrate that.)
I welcome the opportunity to share some time together.
Anne Lewis is generous, warm, wise, and a wonderful coach. She asked relevant questions, helping me think about my path. She has a good sense of humour, and was encouraging, helpful, and challenging when needed. Anne kept me on track and helped my business grow, which was my goal. I recommend Anne Lewis most highly as a coach.
Sheindl Rothman, Trained Professional Organizer, Positive Spaces/Espaces positifs
Coaching with Anne Lewis was useful and strategic for me to get perspective on the issues in my life that needed attention. Her kind and supportive questions helped me focus on what really mattered to me, make decisions and take manageable actions in areas where I had felt overwhelmed.
Thank you, Anne!
I started in a very complicated situation with not a lot of direction and I was much greener, much more confused about my business. It's almost like you have a rough idea of what you're going do next, but by putting aside a certain amount of time, becoming aware of the next stages of growth, saying it out loud in coaching, really verbalizing it and preparing yourself for it, then you have more chance of actually growing in that direction and actually completing the tasks that you imagine yourself completing.
I've now grown Robot In A Can into an increasingly consistent and international business.
Coaching is really helpful, different from business mentorship and most important for entrepreneurs to guide their growth.
Ben Douek, CEO, Robot In A Can
Anne Lewis reinforced my determination. She helped me trust my capacity to make it happen.
We brought Anne Lewis in to help us with a decision we had to make.
We asked her to work with us to untangle the confusing circles we seemed to be going in, to help us stay on track and be more objective. She worked with us to identify the core values we wanted to honour in making this decision. This made it possible to plan together and put that into action.
