Tell me if any of this sounds familiar:

  • Other people say nice things about you but you don’t allow yourself to believe any of it.
  • You often feel like an imposter, like your successes are just flukes.
  • At meetings, you sometimes find yourself looking around the room thinking, “They’re the real experts - who am I to be here?”
  • You frequently feel like you’re not good enough, like you continuously need to prove yourself.
  • You hold yourself back from going for your biggest dreams because, well, you still don't feel ready yet.
  • At night you routinely struggle to fall asleep because negative thoughts keep rattling around in your mind, beating yourself up for any mistakes you think you made that day.

If you feel like I'm reading your mind, let me assure you - you are not alone in this experience.

And there is absolutely something you can do about it.

I'm here to support you in becoming the best version of you


I'm Aenslee Tanner, the creator of the Confidence & Courage program.  

In my work as a certified leadership coach, one of the most common challenges my clients tell me they struggle with is overcoming the self-doubt they feel is holding them back from fulfilling their potential and pursuing their biggest goals.  

And I can totally relate because as an ambitious person with high standards (like you!) I, too, have been in that place.  That place where I served as my own harshest critic.  Where I was always the first to point out all the ways I fell short or would most certainly fail if I went after what I truly wanted.

I can recall spending days, even weeks, replaying my 'mistakes' over and over in my mind, beating myself up for - as I saw it - falling short.  It got so bad I began to feel imprisoned, like my ongoing cycle of self-punishment was out of control.  

So I finally committed to finding a better way.

I searched far and wide, investing in training, coaching, and learning whatever I could to free myself from the incessant self-judgement, fear, and imposter complex I was experiencing so that I could discover that illusive state of calm, peaceful confidence.  A place where I could find the courage to go for my goals and be encouraged by the little voice in my head telling me, "You've got this."  Where I could trust that even if things didn't go exactly as I had planned, I could experience a deep sense of certainty knowing, "I'm going to be ok."

“Aenslee is an ideal coach as not only has she herself experience in living to her fullest potential, but she has also experienced her own struggles with that potential. I think it takes one to know one, and having someone who could empathize with my struggles is something that aided me in my understanding of how I work.”
— Janine, Senior Digital Strategist, FCB New Zealand
After years of personal experimentation and development plus supporting hundreds of clients through similar challenges, I've discovered that a more positive and empowered mindset can be cultivated through specific practices.

Yes, I believe you can do this on your own (just look at how far you’ve come already!) but I also know I can help you get to the next level faster. 


Introducing Confidence & Courage

I've designed Confidence & Courage not as a content-heavy course filled with hours of theoretical concepts for you to ponder (because you're ready to experience results - now) but as an efficient, guided change-initiative composed of simple practices that will support you in creating new, more empowering mental habits from the moment you start implementing them.  

Together we will rewire your brain so that you can feel more confident, positive, courageous and get to the top of your game.

“Aenslee was recommended to me by a colleague as an amazing coach. Right from the start, Aenslee made me feel instantly at ease through her friendly and calming nature. I really feel that I achieved a great deal from Aenslee’s coaching and couldn’t be more grateful to have had the opportunity to be coached by her!”
— Kylie, HR Advisor, PwC

“Aenslee has been an absolutely amazing coach, she is very objective and holistic in her approach and I felt comfortable being transparent about my thoughts. We come from very different cultural backgrounds but I felt Aenslee understood my opinions and reasons behind my thinking, which enabled me to share my thoughts honestly to ensure I get the most out of our coaching sessions.”

Her ability to relate to and shepherd a conversational partner through any kind of discussion, while maintaining and executing elite coaching strategies in her approach, are second to none. With an energetic personality and a focused, deliberate manner towards any task, Aenslee is extremely valuable to whomever she works with. Highly recommended.”
