About Coach Anna

Hello, and thank you for spending time with me here. My name is Anna, and I am the owner of IMAG(in)E Life Coaching. The firm is named for you, my clients, because coaching and hypnotherapy is always and only about you.  It’s about helping you to imagine a new or improved self image based on your goals and objectives. It’s about helping you burst through personal barriers and stale thought processes to achieve all the success you seek.

My career began in 1988 in the financial services industry. My profile on Linked In (Anna Oakley van Ophem) outlines more specific information about the various roles and firms in which I served – I invite you to check it out and send me an invitation to connect! For coaching and hypnotherapy specifically, I have the following credentials and/or certifications which are all currently active:

  • Member of the International Coach Federation
  • Diploma in Hypnotherapy, Hypnosis Motivation Institute (including Handwriting Analysis and Past-Life Regression)
  • Certified Hypnotherapist, Hypnotherapist Union Local 472
  • Member of the American Hypnosis Association
  • Certified Holistic Life Coach, Spencer Institute
  • Certified Sleep Science Coach, Spencer Institute
  • Certified Sports Hypnotist, Spencer Institute

I left the corporate environment early in 2015 – our division was sold, and three companies were folding into one. During the first few months at home, with the luxury of time on my hands, I reviewed all the journals I’d written over the past 20 years (yes, I kept them all) for clues into my heart’s passion for my work. The chronicles of two decades of my thoughts and feelings revealed that it has always been my passion to serve others through one-on-one coaching and mentoring relationships. And, I’m good at it. Thus, IMAG(in)E was born.

Hypnotherapy is a fascinating modality. I went to a hypnotherapist several years ago to help me with stress and anxiety, and for body image issues. My experience unlocked something immensely powerful for me – I learned how to use self-hypnosis, imagery, and meditation for my own growth and healing. When you and I work together, if you like, I would be happy to share with you some of my experiences and key messages that presented themselves during self-hypnosis and meditation.

My husband and I live in Overland Park, Kansas with our two beautiful daughters and our dog.  I am involved with the Kansas City Women’s Foundation, and currently working to earn my second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and training to be an instructor.
