Hi! Welcome to Well Within Coaching. I’m Anna Sandbank.


Why ‘Well Within’? Within each of us is a deep and vast well of possibilities. Your well holds rich resources for living a healthy and purposeful life. I believe each of us wants to feel vital, balanced, connected and deeply nourished, but that we often struggle with how. All too often we look outside of ourselves for answers, and a quick fix. Within you right now, you have everything you need for your journey toward healing and thriving. Whether this means more energy to do what you love, effective ways to manage stress, preparing nutritious meals, consistent activity and movement, healthier relationships, greater fulfillment, a more open spirit, or moving from illness to wellness, you have the capacity, well within your reach, to move toward a life of whole health and wellbeing.


I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness coaching, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are interconnected. It’s easy to overlook many of the areas that contribute to your sense of nourishment and fulfillment. Your health and wellbeing is not only about your genes, the food you eat or how often you workout, but all of the other factors present in your daily life.


Health and wellness from a holistic, integrative perspective looks beyond your physical self and biology to “whole-person-centered wellbeing.”  This approach focuses on body, mind, spirit, and emotions. Together, we can achieve alignment with your vision of your best self. We will look at how multiple areas of your life affect your health as a whole.  We’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, managing stress, and maximizing energy.

Together, we explore these essential forms of nourishment:Nutrition and diet

  • Nutrition and diet
  • Physical activity
  • Sleep
  • Emotions
  • Healthy relationships
  • Fulfilling work
  • Spirituality
  • Self-care
  • A sense of community
  • Environment
  • And more!

Over time, imbalance and neglect can lead to feeling out of sync.Weight gain

We may notice:

  • Weight gain
  • Excessive stress
  • Increased illness
  • Pain
  • Low energy
  • Digestive discomfort
  • Food cravings
  • Mood fluctuations
  • Poor sleep
  • Food sensitivities

Often we take these signs for granted as a function of “normal” aging and a fast-paced lifestyle, and just ignore them, hoping they will go away or fix themselves. But typically, unless we take action to understand and address the underlying or root causes of these issues, they get worse not better.

I have found for many clients, as well as myself, that because we often become overwhelmed with what to do or where to start, having skilled, compassionate guidance and support is critical. Seeking feedback and know-how is not a sign of weakness; it is a sign of courage and strength.

I will support you in achieving your goals, from eating the optimal foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the health and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your vitality, balance and wellbeing.

I’ve restored my own health, learned to take radical self care, and have spent my entire career deeply and compassionately listening to people’s stories. I know that even though we are all unique and are coming from different places, if we dare, we can create a full, vibrant, healthy, meaningful, happy life for ourselves and those around us.

Meal Prepping Made Easy

You’ve hit the midweek slump and decided to skip making dinner and instead reach for your phone for nearby takeout. Or maybe you’ve just been too rushed in the morning to make a healthy breakfast, so you grab a pastry with your coffee at the café near your office. Do either of these sound like a routine you’ve succumbed to?

Remain Mindful This Holiday Season

Do you find yourself getting stressed during the holiday season? This time of year is filled with parties, shopping, spending, entertaining, and a list of other demands that can easily lead to overwhelm.

Healthy Ways to Ease Candy Cravings

Cravings. We all have them. Food cravings are a common response to what we’re going through and can cause the desire to munch on foods we wouldn’t normally eat, such as salty potato chips or sweet chocolate brownies. Studies have shown that cravings for certain foods come from a variety of reasons, including memories, emotions, weather, and stress.
