Life Coaching

Life Coaching sessions often focus on careers, relationships, health and fitness, personal development, and financial planning.

Life Coaching

Alice specialises in coaching young professionals looking to set goals, take action, and make life-long changes in the above areas of their life. Having completed research on the Quarter Life Crisis (published in the International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching & Mentoring), Alice 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. Her coaching is practical, goal-orientated, with a focus on solutions (not problems) and helping you implement specific actions to help you achieve your ambitions.

Specific outcomes of Life Coaching often include:

  • A change in career
  • Effective goal-setting
  • A more balanced life
  • Reduced stress levels
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Better relationships with partner, friends, family and/or co-workers
  • More fun
  • More you-time
  • Ending a bad habit or negative pattern of behaviour or thinking

What to Expect

Session outline:

Life Coaching sessions aim to move your through the following stages:

1. Explore the life areas you want to change (e.g. career, finances, work/life balance, friendships, relationships, fitness/health, interpersonal skills, self-belief), why and in what way.
2. Determine the goals you want to achieve in your different life areas, and how to go about achieving them.
3. Creating a realistic action plan for you implement, offering you structure and clarity to your thinking.
4. Help you overcome the obstacles (situational and psychological) getting in the way of you achieving your goals.
5. Develop your confidence and self-awareness throughout the process.


Sessions are available Monday to Friday between (and including) 10am and 4pm. Alice is not currently offering after-work/evening sessions.

Attitude required:

Alice only works with those serious about making changes in their life, as sessions require an open mind, a willingness to take risks, accountability, and a sincere commitment to implementing the actions agreed between you and Alice. The more keen and ready you are to move forward in your life, the more you will get out of the sessions.

Coaching sessions are not a quick fix but an investment of time, commitment, energy, and acceptance of responsibility towards your future, and how it turns out. Investing in coaching is your first step in taking charge of your future, and carving out a happy, fulfilling, and enjoyable life. The coach can not wave a magic wand (unfortunately), nor can they tell you what career path to take. The responsibility for making decisions ultimately remains with you, which is good, as it's your future, not theirs. The coach is there to facilitate your self-awareness, and help you make sense of your answers to the challenging questions they ask you, so that you can draw concrete conclusions much more easily and objectively than you would if you were trying to figure it all out on your own.

Session format:

Coaching sessions last approximately one hour (1.5 hour sessions also available), taking place once every 2-3 weeks, or longer if required. Alice is based in South East London (Borough/London Bridge & Woolwich Arsenal) but if you're happy to meet in public then session location can be flexible across central London. Telephone and Skype sessions are also available, which can work just as well as face to face sessions.

Next Step? Arrange an Introductory Session

If you are ready to move forward, take charge of your future, and change things once and for all, then Life Coaching is for you. For those keen to get started and find out more about coaching, Alice offers an hour-long introductory session to discuss your current situation, your goals, and what to expect from coaching. You can then decide whether Alice is the right coach for you and how you would like to proceed. These are free over the telephone/Skype, or £35 face to face.

To arrange an introductory session, contact Alice or telephone/text +44 (0)754 559 2909 for details.

Throughout our time working together, Alice was a reliable, friendly and approachable coach. After just 6 months of working with Alice, I had left the job that had been making me miserable and launched my own online business, feeling significantly happier and far more sure of myself than I had at any point in my career previously. Thank you, Alice!
