Annie Lin Coaching


Annie Lin’s coaching philosophy was inspired by Michelangelo’s reference to his sculpting approach: “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Annie envisions the unique brilliance within her clients and empowers them to transcend self-imposed limitations.

Annie has drawn on the wisdom of both Eastern and Western philosophy to facilitate profound transformations. She created a method that harmonizes all four Aspects of Being – physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual. Clients embark on a self-discovery journey, guided by strategies that boost their awareness in these dimensions.

Recognizing that each individual possesses distinct aspirations and challenges, Annie tailors her approach accordingly. Whether it’s providing structure, guidance, or accountability, she focuses on adapting to each client’s unique needs.

Education and Training with Annie


Delve into Annie’s journey, where the worlds of entertainment, marketing, and personal growth converge. With a dynamic journalism career, she has interviewed iconic figures like Madonna, Celine Dion, Jon Bon Jovi, and the Eagles. Her professional path also led her to serve as a marketing director for a prominent international publishing house, and an upscale gallery in the heart of NYC. Annie’s extensive life and career experiences uniquely position her to understand and effectively address the diverse challenges her clients face.

Education and Training

Annie holds an MBA from Oxford Brookes University, UK, and is a certified coach in the United States. Her coaching prowess has been honed through a blend of Eastern Philosophy and the study of diverse modalities, including Neuro-Linguistic Programming, emotional release techniques, thought inquiries, hypnosis, yoga meditation, and Pranayama breathwork.

Annie Coaching Approach


Annie’s coaching approach draws from the rich wisdom of East and West.  She grew up reading Tao De Ching, which emphasizes living in harmony with Tao, the natural order of the Universe. From the moral philosophy of Thomas Aquinas, she discovered that human pursuit transcends mere ‘pleasure,’ seeking a deeper motivation.

Inspired by Alfred Adler, Annie recognizes the power of changing one’s attitude towards events beyond direct control, and she embraces Carl Jung’s concept of the shadow, guiding clients in integrating different aspects of their psyche.

Cognitive Linguistics provides the basis for clients to improve self-awareness through physical practices. She also adopted Eckhart Tolle’s relentless focus on the primacy of the present moment, and A Course in Miracle’s teachings regarding forgiveness as a critical component of spiritual transformation.
