Alice’s Masters in Coaching Practice, and almost ten years of working within the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (the theory that our thoughts and feelings drive our behaviour), have given Alice an extensive understanding of how to work effectively with individuals in their 20s and early 30s who want to change their thinking patterns and the way they behave in certain situations.

The Quarter-Life Crisis

In 2012, Alice conducted academic research on the Quarter-Life Crisis (published in the International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring), and as a result has a developed knowledge of this experience and what particular coaching approaches are most effective when working with those in their 20s and early 30s. It helps that she is also of this age, experiencing her own mini quarter-life crisis in her early 20s when deciding whether to continue as a Probation Officer or set up her own coaching practice.

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.
