A counsellor, speaker and workshop facilitator, Anna Doecke and has been building her career through one form or another since the age of 15. Moving from the country to the city at a young age set Anna on a path of self-discovery, learning and experiencing life to its fullest.
Anna’s career includes counselling, Christian ministry and training. Each phase brought its own challenges and ultimately led to Anna accomplishing the qualification as a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator, achieved under the direction of The Daring Way™ team and Brené Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston who has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame and empathy – qualities that fit well with Anna’s persona and philosophies.
Now, Anna blends her own journey with her qualifications and knowledge to empower her clients and help them live courageously and to live authentically. She also takes her message to groups and organisations, presenting on topics including authenticity, vulnerability and self-care.
As one who knows the importance of making time for herself, Anna spends her spare time playing mini golf, reading books and hanging out with family and friends. (She’s also got a sweet tooth and enjoys the occasional decadent treat!)
Using Anna’s consulting room and surrounds as the location for this corporate photo shoot, I wanted to capture her openness and genuineness as these are what resonate with you first when you meet her. Her passion for her work and her clients was evident and the experience her personal journey has given her is proving invaluable to her understanding and compassion with her clients. Anna is an amazing businesswoman and I was pleased to spend time getting to know her and her business.
