Annalise Roache, MSc (MAPPCP), PCC (ICF)

Positive Psychology Practitioner
Coach | Mentor | Facilitator
Director, The Coaching Toolbox

Coaching is a relatively new industry with a voluntary regulatory system. The International Coaching Federation (ICF) is the largest of regulatory bodies. I am one of only 24 ICF Professional Certified Coaches (PCC) in New Zealand.

Before moving into coaching, I worked extensively in central and local Government (in property, community housing and contract management) and, self-employed, I worked in specialty bid creation and management.

People have asked me why I left my previous successful career, to become a coach, and it is because I adore it. I LOVE IT!

My professional and personal vision is:
“To support individuals to live flourishing, happy and impactful lives”

It’s about providing a safe place for people to come and explore themselves, in a very real way, and enabling them to live the life they want to live. It’s about allowing people the time and place, to find out what they love, what makes them happy, what makes them absolutely joy-filled – and finding ways of getting that into their life. I enjoy helping people find practical ways to make changes. The changes that are needed are not necessarily huge, and that is what’s so fantastic about it! It’s about re-prioritising. It’s like taking your sunglasses off, and seeing the world in a different way.
