Anamaria Acevedo is an exceptional coach. In fact, she may well be the smartest, most discerning, most fun coach in London. She trained and practised as an architect before she moved to coaching, and her high intelligence and intuitive gifts show in all that she says. These qualities, combined with her persistence and sympathetic goodwill in pushing the client to put aside limits and work for what is wanted, at depth, make her a great asset to anyone’s life. A precious asset, in fact.
Anamaria has enabled me to tackle all kinds of creeping negativity in life, that was informing my outlook, and that I was for multiple reasons not quite facing, or seeing as a phenomenon that could be fundamentally challenged. Anamaria has shown me that I can challenge and change my outlook, something I didn’t think possible before. And she does it so cheerfully, and sympathetically! All kinds of achievements are now coming into view as possible and do-able that I had given up on. I am so grateful and cannot recommend her enough.
Don’t wait – do it! Because she WILL help in ways you didn’t think possible.

"My experience with Anamaria has been exceptional. Thanks to her compassionate guidance, I have worked through crucial blockages and arrived at a profound understanding of my values and authentic desires. After working with her, I feel renewed, liberated, and find myself on the threshold of beginning a new chapter of my life: one marked by wonder, courage and openness. I would highly recommend Anamaria as a coach."
"When I first came to Anamaria, I was somewhat a bit of a mess, lacking a lot of confidence. From our first meeting, I immediately began to feel better. Not only was it great to share my struggles with someone, but she allowed me to realise that if I took a step back, take time to take a breath, I could begin to realise that I could trust and find faith in my ability to realise that happiness is already there within myself.
She had enabled me to open my eyes and look to the future with excitement, focusing on the things that I enjoy in life and beat down the walls that stand in the way.
She has taught me that one of the bravest things I could do is to let go of the things/people who hurt my mind and soul and instead listen to my own real voice"
“For a long time I was convinced I didn’t need anyone’s help and that I could solve my issues by myself…
From the first session I felt better and I realized I was dealing with a self-confident competent professional. You have contagious energy and happiness and coaching helped me to feel more confident and believe I am able to clearly define and achieve goals.
I discovered, with our meetings, that something really important and necessary to define and achieve goals is to learn to dream.”
“I never imagined that you could awake the sleeping lion that was inside me, it didn’t wake up furious; you rescued him from his lifelong hibernation.
With your grace, intuition, shrewdness and love, you guided me and started moving things inside me… my frustrations, my achievements, my fears. You have a gift and I also love your seriousness and responsibility.
You have a sixth sense to perceive mood’s states … and with subtlety you manage them, respect them and don’t give up until one finds oneself.”
“I learnt to think about myself, becoming aware that in life it is important to put issues and worries in standby, to take time to breathe deeply and start enjoying all the good things we already have…
I hold Anamaria in very high regard and the way she manages the coaching process. She was sensitively assertive in my case as we identified and explored the most important issues, which stopped me from enjoying my life in the way I deserve it.”
“I am grateful with Anamaria for her excellent collaboration in clarifying my ideas and the questioning , which made me reflect upon these things I have to work on to balance all areas in my life.
Our coaching sessions helped me to identify my priorities taking in account my strengths to be able to develop more pleasurable and productive activities in all fronts of my life. At the moment I am developing those activities and I have far more clarity towards my goals. I thank Anamaria hugely for her dedication and understanding on the subject.”
"These sessions helped me to realise that I have the tools to achieve whatever I want in life but that I don’t know how to use them. You, as a guide, helped me to understand how to take advantages of these tools and to put them into practice through different techniques and strategies."
What the Press and other sources say
“Coaching can certainly help you strengthen your sense of self-worth, focus on your goals – and get there, fast.”
The London Daily Telegraph
"A professional life coach is a trained individual who provides an on-going partnership designed solely to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. They have experience in using effective methods to help their clients to first identify exactly what they want from life, then to expose any hidden self-defeating behavioural patterns, and finally, create effective personal strategies for attaining the set goals."
Sonja Smith, Observer
"Got a nagging feeling that your life could be more fulfilling? Want to change direction but aren't sure how to do it? Here's how to jump start your new life today… Hire a personal coach."
"Coaching is not about the past or figuring out why and how life got so complicated or overwhelming. It is about moving forward on the things that matter most to you, dissolving barriers and blocks to your own success, and designing a life you love. As a result of coaching, clients set better goals, take more action, make better decisions, and more fully use their natural strengths".
