Hello and welcome.

"As a Certified Therapeutic Life Coach™, Accredited Havening Techniques® Practitioner, Master Practitioner of NLP, and dedicated Home School mentor, my expertise has positively influenced numerous families and individuals. With a focus on healing from Post Traumatic Experiences, School Traumas, childhood challenges, personal obstacles, and intricate family dynamics, I have guided individuals towards reclaiming their personal power and achieving their goals.

My notable accomplishments lie in facilitating the recovery of individuals who have suffered from various traumas, which have manifested in their bodies as diverse illnesses. Through my comprehensive skill set, I have been able to empower individuals who are ready to embark on the journey of healing and regain control over their lives.


Renowned for providing a nurturing environment filled with compassion and deep understanding, I specialise in supporting individuals in the complexities of parenting, care-giving, exploring alternative educational approaches, embracing alternative lifestyles, and experiencing the liberating freedom of self-discovery. I have been there!

Within the family unit, it is common for us to carry our own known and unknown traumas, which can greatly impact our decision-making processes for ourselves and our children. By healing these wounds, we can authentically embody the role model our children need and become advocates for our family members, regardless of the circumstances.

One of the most potent tools for self-regulation and trauma recovery is the Havening Technique(R). I offer instruction in self-administering this technique, which, when combined with other modalities, can unlock incredible potential surpassing the results often achieved through traditional therapy or counselling.

My expertise encompasses a diverse range of disciplines, including Child Psychology, Genius Mapping, NLP, Spiral Somatics, Hypnosis, and Early Childhood Development. I draw upon this knowledge and skillset to enhance the Therapeutic Life Coaching practices provided at Wellness Guide.

Rest assured that in your journey towards personal growth and healing, I am committed to offering comprehensive support and guidance.

This is my family. Its my why!

Oh, let me tell you the story of my journey to becoming a successful life coach and a homeschooling mum in beautiful regional Australia. It's been quite a ride, filled with laughter, tears, and a whole lot of love.

After my adventurous travels abroad, I returned to the land down under and reconnected with the love of my life, who is now my amazing husband. Life was good, and a few years later, we found ourselves expecting our first little bundle of joy. But as luck would have it, my waters decided to break at just 25 weeks gestation. Talk about an unexpected surprise!

I was flown to Melbourne, where the doctors emphasized the importance of keeping our precious baby growing in the womb for as long as possible. Now, being the eternal optimist that I am, I was determined to make everything work out just fine. I turned to guided meditations three times a day, bid adieu to TV and junk magazines, and my darling hubby made sure I had a steady supply of real fresh food because hospital meals are, let's face it, not exactly nurturing or nutritious.

In that hospital room, I created a little sanctuary for myself. I had a live plant, a lovely sarong, and an atmosphere so calm that even the doctors and medical team would come in just to hang out. It was quite the party, I tell you!

Finally, our beautiful baby arrived in this world through an emergency C-section at 29 weeks and 4 days gestation. She had managed to stay inside for nearly five weeks, and that gave her a fighting chance. And guess what? She's growing into the most beautiful human being!

Now, here's where things get interesting. As a perpetually positive person, I failed to realize the extent of trauma I had undergone. "She'll be right mate!" was my motto, but it wasn't until the birth of our second child that I truly understood how different and traumatic my experience had been. But with two babies at home, resembling twins due to their tiny sizes, I was way too busy to address any concerns about my own mental health. Life was a whirlwind of nappies, feedings, and long hours for my hardworking hubby.

And then came our third child, a house move, and a career change. It was in that moment that I realized life wasn't as grand as I had hoped. I felt lost, unsure of who I had become. I had changed, but was I meant to change this much? Well, my love, the truth is, you cannot go through life without events impacting and changing your perspective.

Thankfully, a dear friend came to the rescue and referred me to a weekend course in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) called "A Touch of Magic!" And let me tell you, it truly lived up to its name. In just two and a half days, I was armed with tools to cope with the stress of raising young kids and to regulate my own well-being so I could be the happy mum I aspired to be.

That magical course also highlighted something crucial—I needed to work on myself. I needed to invest in my own growth and healing. It was a powerful realization that I was worth that investment. So, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery and healing, determined to bring joy and calm back into our home.

Now, over five years later, I proudly offer my skills and training to other women who long to reclaim their personal power. And here's the best part—you don't have to take the exact same training I did. I have a knack for identifying patterns that no longer serve us, and with my training and expertise, I can help you move forward in life with positivity and empowerment.

You, my dear, are worth the time and energy it takes to reclaim your personal power. It's waiting for you, ready to be unleashed. So, make that choice today—choose a life filled with joy, abundance, and the confidence to be the incredible woman you were always meant to be.

Remember, laughter is the best medicine, and as a compassionate and funny mother, I'm here to cheer you on every step of the way. Together, we'll navigate the ups and downs of life with a smile and a whole lot of love.

Sending you warm hugs from regional Australia, Your compassionate and funny mum life coach

Annmarie instilled in me the ability to forge my own key. Not only to unlock things I had left unresolved inside me, to finally have the ability to consciously navigate the right combination of which doors to close through my life and which to open.

The sceptic in me is surprised it was not as complicated and drawn out as I had imagined, I had hidden behind the idea that fixing internal damage was a huge painful process that would burden me and take years to unravel.
I felt an instant shift from my first meeting with Annmarie and could recognise small changes happen instantly.
With a new ownership of myself I reflect with pride in the person I am, not what weighed me down in the past.
Big Life Shift, and the ripples are endless.......I owe a debt of gratitude to Annmarie.
I am excited for a future of fullness.
