We believe in personal growth

Animo is a Latin word that represents courage, inspiration, tenacity and zest. It refers to strength in the face of adversity. For us it represents our role, as coaches and facilitators, to support you to step into your power, embrace new challenges and to lead with greater strength and confidence.

With a collective 30 years of experience working in the third sector, Kate and Maria first joined forces in 2018 after becoming accredited coaches with the International Coaching Federation.
