My Coaching and Work Experience

Alice has over 7 years experience of working with individuals in their 20s and 30s looking to find direction and clarity in their career, personal life and relationships. Many of her clients feel stuck in a particular job/career and wish to change direction but don't know how, or where to start.

She has recently completed research on the unique experience of the quarter-life crisis and what coaching methods prove effective when working with those in their 20s and 30s. As a result, Alice has a developed knowledge of this experience and an awareness of the effective coaching methods for working with young people who feel they are experiencing such a crisis.

Alice's clients are those that know there is more to life. You might feel stuck in a profession/life pattern and want to explore your options in order to move forward. Her approach is a friendly and positive one designed to help you feel at ease in discussing your life goals.

  • Change in career

  • Sense of direction and focus

  • Reduced stress levels
  • More self-confidence
  • Better relationships with partner, friends, family and/or co-workers
  • More fun
  • More me-time
  • End a bad habit/pattern of behaviour or thinking

Her coaching sessions aim to:

  • Explore the life areas you want to change (e.g. career, work/life balance, relationships, fitness/health, interpersonal skills), why and in what way.
  • Clarify your various options.
  • Determine the goals you want to achieve in the different life areas.
  • Support you in creating a realistic action plan to offer you structure and clarity to your thinking.
  • How to overcome the obstacles (situational and psychological) getting in the way of you achieving these goals.

    Having found myself in a career rut, Alice’s professional approach gave me real focus, looking at my life holistically and understanding which areas needed most thought. It changed the way I look at my goals and has made me much happier and confident with the choices I’m now making.

  • from Graduate Recruiter, London on 02 Oct 2015

    Alice is warm, friendly and approachable in her approach yet direct in her coaching style. She has useful tools that I have found really beneficial, she is always encouraging feedback on how sessions went in order to improve.


  • from Plumber, SW London on 11 Aug 2015

    Alice really helped me to focus on where I am and how to get to where I want to be. Her positive attitude and approach was a breath of fresh air and exactly what I needed. Thanks very much!


  • from Marketing Manager, Magazine Publishing on 20 Jun 2015

    I liked that Alice asked quite probing questions which really made me think about what it is I want and that even in an ideal world this could still be an option. I’ve come away with good advice and practical steps to follow.


  • from Group Marketing Manager, Medical Publishing Company on 20 Apr 2015

    Having gone through a very difficult year, Alice has really helped me to view my life holistically and enabled me to focus on the areas I’d like to change. She is extremely supportive and I have found the whole process very worthwhile. I’m missing our sessions already and will be signing up for some more!


  • from Medical Publishing, London on 20 Mar 2015

    I approached coaching with a fairly clear objective that I’d been contemplating for years. Thanks to Alice’s structured exercises, facilitative discussion and encouragement I’ve made the first tentative steps towards achieving this goal. However, I didn’t expect the bonus extras which I think may be unique to Alice’s coaching style, providing insights on what has blocked me in the past, the behaviours and attitudes that may have held me back, plus practical guidance for tackling these unhelpful traits in future, equipping me to be my own mini-life coach! I have already recommended Alice to several friends, and I look forward to working with her again.


  • from PA to a top fashion designer on 13 Feb 2015

    Alice has changed the way I live both my professional & personal life.


  • from Strategic Marketing Manager, Worldwide Publishing Company on 20 Jan 2015

    I now behave and work differently, which has had a noticeable impact with my colleagues and on my motivation at work. Alice has really strong coaching skills that allow you to talk openly and with no judgement.


  • from Legal Services, London on 18 Jan 2015

    In my opinion, Alice doesn’t come with any preconceptions or fixed ideas of what action you might take but really listens to you, to help draw out what you probably already know yourself, but just hadn’t quite found or had the courage to think.


  • from Lawyer, International Law Firm on 20 Dec 2014

    Alice is a fantastic Life Coach. She goes out of her way to understand how you are feeling. She is also a good listener. I would highly recommend her.


  • from A much more positive and happier client on 29 Nov 2014

    Coaching with Alice has been enormously helpful. I’ve gone from being very negative and unhappy with a lot of things, to less negative and more motivated. She’s given me the push I needed to progress with things I felt would never happen. She’s genuinely caring and I’d recommend her to anyone.


  • from Healthcare Professional on 20 Oct 2014

    Alice is very friendly and approachable in her coaching style and she really helped me to move forward at a time when I was quite lost in my life. I have gained many great skills to live my life by in the future. I think this type of coaching is good value for money as it can really help to make the best of one’s current situation and look to the future.


  • from Ex-International Swimmer on 11 Oct 2014

    I came to Alice because I felt a bit lost and I didn’t really understand where my life was going. We set up 3 clear paths for my future, and I am now working with each to see which one I want to go down. The sessions really made me think about what I want from life and how I can act on it. Alice is very easy to get along with and I cannot recommend her highly enough.


  • from University Lecturer, Hampshire on 20 Aug 2014

    I found Alice to be very approachable and understanding. My sessions with her helped me to understand more about myself and enabled me to develop practical skills that I could use within a short period of time to make changes to my life for the better.


  • from University Lecturer, Southampton on 20 Aug 2014

    I really appreciated Alice's honest, non-judgmental and understanding approach. We worked through issues to come up with tangible, practical solutions that could be implemented within a short space of time to produce a positive result.


  • from Retail Manager on 15 Aug 2014

    This was my first time trying something like Life Coaching; I did not ever feel the need or think I ever would. However, after a very tiring period at work I realised I was not myself, not enjoying work and finding my own life difficult for various reasons plus, I felt I had no confidence anymore. I found the coaching gave me time to look at myself, the situation, what I needed to change, remember how to break things down into more manageable pieces, plan my own time correctly to ensure I give quality time to what is most important. I quickly found my confidence came back as I developed through the coaching process and found Alice to offer both a very professional and personalised service which I would certainly use again.


  • from Marketing Professional on 07 May 2014

    I admit I found some of the sessions quite challenging, mainly because they forced me to address some of those obstacles that I've felt have held me back and stopped me from really going after my dreams. The tools that Alice gave me have been really helpful, especially the tools which helped me to identify strengths and value sets. I also plan to work a lot more on my confidence issues and turning a negative mind set into a positive one. I’ve really enjoyed meeting and working with Alice over the past few months. She has a real talent for asking questions in a way that gets the best out of people and immediately puts you at ease.


  • from Entrepreneur on 23 Apr 2014

    Alice’s methods are a source of inspiration and have been a great tool in helping me to rebuild my quality of life, to move forward and to take control of my life. I am grateful that this opportunity became available and that I decided to grasp it. I learned that I am worthy of true happiness, creating joy and success in all areas of my life. Alice is a great teacher of vital life skills. I am very grateful, thank you Alice.


  • from Self-Employed Personal Skills Trainer on 02 Mar 2014

    The three coaching sessions I have had with Alice have all been on different areas of my life that I wanted to improve. She has been a great help in all of them, coaching with a friendly style that allows me to come to my own realisations and conclusions. Overall, the sessions have been a huge help with my personal life and in heading off on my journey to set up my own business. I have already recommended her to a number of friends.


  • from Marketing Professional on 25 Feb 2014

    I really enjoyed my sessions with Alice. They have helped me look objectively at the areas of my life I am happy with and those areas which need a bit more attention. She has put together some thoughtful suggestions on how to improve my life, which have been invaluable.


  • from Happy Client on 20 Feb 2014

    I feel much happier and optimistic about the future. Having clearly defined personal goals going forward has been very important for me.


  • from Legal Manager, London on 20 Feb 2014

    I wasn’t sure what to expect at first but I’ve found the whole thing interesting and worthwhile. Alice is an encouraging and inspiring person to work with. Recommended.


  • from Barristers’ Clerk on 13 Jan 2014

    I find Alice engaging and she inspired confidence in me from the start. I enjoyed receiving a clear set of goals to go away with and being challenged on the way I thought about some things which often left me to discover solutions for myself during the sessions. I am now consciously combating my own self-doubt and avoiding the traps that can lead to low self-esteem. I feel genuinely empowered by the exercises we worked on together and I would be very happy to recommend Alice.
