My insights & experience as a coach in training.
Who I am & My Mission
My name is Anne Beaulieu. I am an certified Emotional Intelligence Coach and trained through The Coach Training Academy (TCTA). I help overwhelmed female professionals and stay-at-home mothers remove hidden energy blocks so they make room for themselves in their own life. Would you agree many of us have the feeling our lives belong to everyone else, except us? For those who are ready to make real progress and experience richness, peace and emotional balance, I am here to help them reclaim their life.
Why coach training?
Imagine for a moment, or maybe it is you, that you know someone who consistently hits the pillow exhausted at night, most likely because they are living their life for others. In the name of ‘love’, it is easy to get lost in the world of someone else, forgetting who we are, what we want, or even how to be happy. In these moments, we might feel loneliness, sadness, self-doubt, stress, depression, even anger. The last thing we may want is for someone else to shower us with well-intended advice to get us unstuck. I believe what works miracles is a plan of action, a plan that is specific, measurable, reliable, and trackable. Coach training was my plan of action for me, my plan to move me from being interested in giving advice to being committed to placing my clients’ well-being into their own hands while I cheer them gracefully towards the life they truly want.
Highlights of the TCTA program for me
When I signed up for the TCTA program, the list of ‘I did not know’ was long and overwhelming. I did not know how to build a coaching business from the ground up. I did not know how to identify my niche and my target market. I did not know how to create a mission statement, tier coaching packages, a blog, a website, etc. I felt lost. When it came to the coaching aspect itself, I fared little better. I was one of ‘those’ coaches with the mind that ‘I’ll wing my way through it, can’t be that bad’. Wow, was I in for a surprise! At The Coach Training Academy, I have learned to build rapport and foster a co-creative relationship with my clients. I have learned how to ask powerful questions and avoid the ‘winging it’ of inexperienced coaches. I have learned how to coach emotional intelligence, career transition, and wellness. I have improved my active listening, trusting intuition, and slashing the dragons of self-limited beliefs. At TCTA, all these skills, competences, and knowledge consistently got put to the test in a friendly, compassionate, understanding, educational, and empowering environment. I am so happy I chose that school. Attending the TCTA is proving to be one of the most empowering, enriching decisions of my personal life and career.
How the training is helping me professional/personally
Being a certified coach and training through the TCTA bears weight in the personal development world. The fact the TCTA is affiliated with the Certified Coaches Alliance (CCA) and the International Coaching Federation (ICF) gives it even more weight in terms of legitimacy, professionalism, and sheer business networking potential. When I mention I am certified and trained through TCTA, I get respect. Yes, I still have to prove myself, but because of my certification, I have a foot in the door at least. We all know that many diplomas cannot even attest to that.
Do you have children? A life partner? Brothers? Sisters? Parents? My coaching training at TCTA, I am applying it to me first and foremost. I am learning to ask myself powerful questions to figure out what I want. I am learning to listen without judgment or rebuttal. I am learning to embrace my process and celebrate my milestones. Being happy is something I cherish. Maybe you can relate? My children are now more relaxed. They share more easily what is in their heart. That alone is priceless to me. I am forever grateful for this training that has allowed my 16 year old daughter to feel safe enough to run down the hallway, out of breath, just to come see me with stars in her eyes. ‘Mama, I stood up for me today. I asked for what I want,’ I smiled at her and hugged her tight.

About Ann Beaulieu C.E.I.C
For decades, I built the ‘perfect’ image. I hid from the world what was deeply troubling my heart. I hid from me. Maybe because my father is a sociopath. Maybe because my mother is clinically psychotic. Maybe because, just like my 5 siblings, I have clung to survival for dear life.
Like so many others, I have looked outside of myself for answers. I chased diplomas and certifications. I got married, had children, and built the white picket fence. Yet, I went to bed with a hole in my heart that no money, thing, or person could ever fill. I felt utterly alone and abandoned. “What about me? Who will ever be there for me?”
Then I met my mentor Dov Baron, he asked me, “What do you want most in your life?” I wanted to truly ‘feel’ me and love me and to be part of my own life. I took the emotional intelligence tumble of a lifetime and landed flat out on my ego. In that dark place, I realized I had very little compassion for myself. I did not know what love was, how to love, how to be loved. I sank into a deep sorrow. I burned with anxiety. I started feeling the pain I had denied my whole life. Memories flooded back of being whipped, molested, beaten, spat on, ridiculed…
Over time, the idea of blame is becoming but a memory as love and compassion gradually fill my heart. I now deeply know I am not alone. I also understand no one does it alone. Know I am here for you.
