Anne Hartley, Founder and CEO of Hart Life Coaching

About Hart Life Coaching

I’m Anne Hartley, the owner of Hart Life Coaching. I’m also the head trainer and the creator of all of our programs.

I became a life coach in 1998 and began training life coaches in 1999. We were one of the first life coach training schools in Australia and we are the only life coach training school using the acclaimed Love the Life You Live coaching model, which combines the power of the heart and mind to transform lives.

Before I started Hart Life Coaching I tended to set goals using my thinking mind and I often found that those choices didn’t make me any happier. It took a mid-life crisis to motivate me to start listening to my heart. Using the steps that turned my life around I created a ten step life coaching process.

Apart from the ten steps mindfulness and meditation are a practice that is a part of my life and they make a real difference. I’ve been meditating since the early eighties so it was only natural for me to write a course for meditation teachers.

Mindfulness is something I resisted for a while but once I started using it, it too had a profound impact on my life.

When I write a course I have a couple of aims in mind:

  1. My courses must be interesting. I have attended way too many boring courses to inflict that upon anyone else.
  2. They need to contain information that improves your life, even if you’ve done a lot of courses.

From the feedback, we get from people who train with us I believe I’ve achieved those goals.

I love sharing. So whether you want to attend a course, train for a new career, read one of my books, attend a Ten Wishes group, there is something on this website for just about everyone.

Hart Life Coaching Pty Ltd is owned by Anne Hartley, the founder and creator of all of our training programs.

Our office is located in Bayview NSW. As a life coaching business, we aim to leave a low carbon footprint and be respectful of all we associate with.

At Hart Life Coaching we want to make a real difference in the lives of everyone who trains with us.

You won’t get the hard sell from us or any hype.

We walk our talk, and the many beautiful testimonials we receive from people who train with us confirm this time and time again.

Six years ago a friend gave me a book to read. That one book was a catalyst that started a journey of self-discovery, newfound awareness and excitement about the possibility of life. Anne Hartley’s intuitive and commonsense words resonated strongly and stayed with me, to be recommended as a read time and time again. In the ensuing years I kept returning to Anne’s site, drawn to the potential of extending these liberating learning’s into a new career opportunity. I explored other coach training options but kept returning to Anne’s as it provided a more holistic, real and heart-based method. Six years after reading “Love the Life You Live”, I started my coach training journey. Initially hesitant of the teleconference method (as a visual learner) I am pleased to find the discussions stimulating, enlightening, and definitely a factor in cementing the learning materials. If I miss a class a downloadable recording is available so there is no excuse to get behind. Teleconference sessions are supported by extensive materials and a social media presence. What better way to learn than by exploring the concepts on yourself. To anyone unsure of the coaching journey, I can only say “Go for it!” But be warned, you must be prepared to come to know yourself, and to enter into a life of infinite possibility!!!
