033 Money and mindset: Annabel's conflict with 'all or nothing' patterns
On this episode of the Your Money Sorted Teachers’ Podcast, I welcome Annabel Jeffcoatte, a teacher and coach who helps primary school middle leaders reduce anxiety and find work-life balance through coaching strategies. Annabel shares her personal journey of healing from burnout and her complex relationship with money.
Annabel reflects on her early money-saving habits and how societal expectations of being a "good girl" influenced her financial decisions. Annabel shares how over time, she sought healing through therapy and coaching, which helped her regain control over her life and rebuild her financial and emotional well-being. Today, Annabel has achieved balance in her life and helps teachers find the same balance through her coaching, serving as an inspiring example of personal growth and transformation.
Annabel discusses the importance of recognising the connections between different aspects of our lives, such as our relationship with money. Annabel shares her personal journey of shifting from "all or nothing" behaviour patterns that affected her seizures, spending habits, and relationships. Eileen praises Annabel’s positive attitude and transformation, highlighting the significance of personal development in addressing internal issues and progressing in life. Eileen encourages the audience to explore Annabel’s program, "Work Life Balance for Teachers," which focuses on holistic support and self-discovery.
