Alice’s Masters in Coaching Practice, and thirteen years of working one-to-one with a wide range of individuals, have given Alice an extensive understanding of how to work effectively with those seeking a career that inspires and motivates them. In 2017, she became a certified Firework Career Coach, bringing a credible and structured framework to her coaching approach when working with those who don’t know what career would suit them.

Alice is a friendly, easy-going coach with an informal, yet professional, approach. She works best with clients who are serious about making changes to their careers, and who are ready to make the most of the coaching process.

Millennial Mum

Having experienced her own mini Quarter-Life Crisis in her early 20’s, Alice conducted a piece of academic research (published in the International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring) on this growing phenomenon to help her understand how coaching could help those in similar situations. As a result, Alice has a developed knowledge of what it’s like to experience a Quarter-Life Crisis and what particular coaching approaches are most effective when working with those in their 20’s and 30’s.

In 2016, Alice went on to become a first-time Mum. Spending a year on Maternity Leave gave Alice the perspective and opportunity to contemplate what a huge challenge it must be for Millennial Mums and Dads to face the prospect of returning to a job they hate. She uses her extensive Career Coaching experience to help such individuals make the most out of their time off work and find a career they’ll love.

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.
