Hi! I’m Anne Gilkes. 


How would it feel to change your relationship with drinking?

Stop feeling out of control and get back to being in control

Restore your belief that you are enough without alcohol as a crutch.

You’ll feel healthier and happier, have more energy, less anxiety and sleep like a baby! Imagine what you can do when you feel like that!

Anne Gilkes – Behaviour Change Coach & NLP Practitioner


Are you feeling that something’s “not quite right” ? That the drink which you used to enjoy has become the thing that now controls what you do, and not the other way around? Perhaps it’s a habit that’s gradually grown – especially in times of stress or boredom? 

Taking a break from drinking is the first step in taking back control – over what you choose to do, and not what alcohol leads you to.

Support to Take a Break from Drinking

Not sure how to start? It starts with a simple choice – Choose Yourself! 

I’ve been on this journey myself – check out My Story.  And now my passion is to support others through the same journey. I work with you to provide support and accountability that suits you, and allows you to take back control. Ready to learn more?

Here’s how I think of the 3 stages of Discovering Sobriety:


  • You’re concerned about your drinking habits but unsure about giving up drinking altogether.
  • You try to moderate and make rules – but that voice keeps whispering its ok to keep having just one more drink…..
  • You’re considering a break from alcohol, but you’re not sure how to, or if you need support to quit drinking?
  • My First Steps Strategy Session will give you an awareness of exactly where you’re at and give you a foundation to build from.

  • You’re fed up you with working all day, fighting off the ‘wine witch’, then drinking anyway.
  • You’re sick of waking up wondering why you had that ‘extra’ nightcap, but still starting the cycle all over again.
  • You’re worried that life will be boring without drinking, but it’s boring doing the same old drinking thing anyway!
  • You want to feel better, have energy, less anxiety, more confidence, wake up refreshed after amazing deep sleep! 
  • You’re ready to commit to having a proper break for a few weeks to detox yourself and explore how sobriety can work for you.
  • Join The Alcohol & Mind Reset Programme – an online group programme with ladies just like you in a safe confidential space.

  • It’s now about what you do in the future.
