Ann’s background
Ann worked for American Express for 16 years, in relationship development roles in London, and internationally, managing a team across Eastern Europe. Her clients included Harrods, the Space Agency in Moscow, Posidonia Shipowners in Athens, and Monaco Yacht Show. A highlight was a conference she organised in Istanbul for her team, with delegates from 12 countries. The diverse challenges she faced gave Ann an ability to plan, adapt quickly and find solutions, whilst maintaining good relationships. She also has a good sense of humour! Having moved her family to the Dorset Coast to pursue a more balanced life, Ann hired a Coach to help her plan a new business. She enjoyed the process so much, she invested in coaching training and 10 years on, remains passionate about supporting others to achieve their goals and business/life vision.

A bit more about Ann
Originally from Yorkshire, Ann moved her family down from London to live on the Dorset Coast 14 years ago and embraces every opportunity to spend time by the sea – walking, swimming, paddle-boarding, taking photographs of the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Each year,she has a ‘tech free’ beach hut stay with her family on the sandspit at Mudeford to completely unwind and enjoy nature. She enjoys a healthy lifestyle, but can be tempted out for an evening with good friends, seafood, and a Mojito. Her other passions are Italian, travel and writing, preferably all together!

Ann’s favourite business book:
‘Presence’ by Amy Cuddy


"Our Practice was at a stage of growth and change and we needed guidance and support and through the coaching we’ve received from Painless Practice that is exactly what we’ve got. The Success Club group meetings are so beneficial. Bev is an excellent coach who gets the interaction flowing within the group and encourages us all to share ideas and helps to provide solutions to any issues we may have. I would recommend Painless Practice to any business, as we have found their coaching and support to be invaluable to us."

Mark - Greenwich Natural Health Centre

“Painless Practice telephone coaching has been integral in supporting and helping me with the changes I have made to my Osteopathic clinic in the last two years. She has enabled me to look at the way I manage my associates therapists and most importantly receptionists taking the stress away, as well as helping me get the work life balance back. In the last two years with her help I have reduced my hours of hands on treating patients and not taken a hit in income which has been a massive boon to both bank account and my ageing body!”

Phillippa Rayne - Bampton Clinic

"Ann has been my Business Coach for around six years. In that time I have successfully created 3 new businesses, one of which has just turned over £1m in the last 12 months, and the other two are both in profit and directly employ six individuals between them, as well as outsourcing to numerous other individuals and suppliers. Ann has been fundamental to all of this success. I always know that after a coaching session with Ann I will leave with new thinking about how to take myself and/or the businesses forward."

"In James and Painless Practice I found the perfect business partner: always there to point out and debate the array of alternatives, whilst still allowing me that all important final decision! And where running my business had once started to feel lonely and thankless, with James’ support and encouragement, the original enthusiasm returned. I cannot recommend James, Celia and the Painless Practice team highly enough."
